While I was waiting for the train, I spotted one super stylish passenger:
Everything is neutral, but it's so polished. The pearls, the manicure, the metallic bag - I love it.
For my travel look, I grabbed one of my empire waist tops and my skinny capris. I too was hoping to look polished, so I accessorized quite a bit. Although my overnight bag is my L.L. Bean backpack from high school that is purple tie dye. I'd like to get an over night bag that will enhance a look, rather than kill it. Just something else for the wishlist...

Boston is full of shopping opportunities. Lots, and lots. This weekend however, I did no shopping at all. When I went out to lunch, rather than ordering the cheapest thing on the menu, I ordered what I really wanted. I didn't complain about $9 cocktails at the bar, I enjoyed my drink and had fun dancing -- rather than thinking about some top or pair of shoes I could have been buying instead.
For the most part, I avoided shops entirely. I glanced into windows, occasionally paused and gawked for a moment or two, but I kept moving. I kept my camera by my side and tried to stay in that photographic mindset.
I did go into one thrift shop and sorted through those numerous color coded racks, I found a really gorgeous BCBG brown velvet blazer for $6, but it was a bit too small for me. I know a week ago I would have bought it anyway. This time I lamented, but I put it back. I left the store completely empty handed.

So far in the face of temptation, I've maintained restraint. I hope I can stay on this path!
