all this non-posing posing is giving me a headache

My name is Caitlin Pierce and I am an emotional shopper. There I said it… the first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem right, so hopefully this is my first step toward squashing my emotional shopping habits. What is emotional shopping you ask? It’s when I have a wildly stressful week and end up spending way too much money on items that make me feel better.

My latest case of emotional shopping included this amazing pair of vintage American made Levi’s, that my friend (and fellow fashionista) Carolyn cut and hand dyed. I’ve never been a big fan of shorts but I’m easing into these summer staples by layering them with tights. Hopefully by the time summer gets here I’ll be confident enough to rock em solo.

I love the color and cut of the shorts, the high waist makes them feel so 80’s! Hand made/one of a kind pieces always make me feel extra special and these shorts are no exception.

What spring/summer trends are you easing into? Are you an emotional shopper? What hand made pieces do you have in your wardrobe?
