A little bit of retail therapy

Feb 9, 2012   //   by Yoga Lisa DC   //   Blog, self-care  //  No Comments

Every woman knows that there are those days when you just need a little bit of retail therapy to make everything perfect again. And truly, retail therapy isn’t all about shopping. It’s sometimes just about taking time away to spend with your friends or a few minutes out just for yourself.

Last Saturday was one of those days for me. My friend Alison and I headed down to Potomac Mills in Woodbridge, VA. We walked the Mills, making stops at H&M, Gymboree, and Ann Taylor, just to name a few. Here are some of the fruits of our retail therapy expedition and I’m quite happy to say, not all of these are for me.

my new chair from our stop at Ikea - so incredibly comfortable to knit, read, and watch TV in

new going out and work tops from Ann Taylor Factory Outlet

a fruitful trip to Banana Republic Outlet... so looking forward to lounging in this sweatshirt and the dress will be adorable for the office...

some more going out tops procured at H&M... maybe a top for some future alumni gatherings

i may have had a little too much fun in Gymboree... bright side, some of this will be saved for Christmas.

So, you could say, I had a just a little bit of fun shopping on Saturday. I don’t do it very often any more, but when I do, I have lots of fun. And besides, who can beat time out with the girls, sometimes that is the true “therapy” in retail therapy.

When was your last retail therapy trip? Have one planned sometime soon?
