According to me,
I had an amazing shopping day yesterday. It started off with disappointment but ended in triumph!
I went to the mall with my boyfriend and friend. I went a little earlier in order to stop at the clothing stores (there was no way I was gonna get them to go in with me!). I found a really cute pair of shorts and an interesting top (that I think I might go back and get), but those went right out of my mind when I saw these shoes:

I have wanted a pair of oxford booties for the longest time. I think they can make any outfit amazing. But, to a poor college student, a price of $26 is hard to bend to. Let me explain. I normally would say to heck with it and buy the amazing shoes for $26, but I had been saving to buy a new watch and bracelet for Fossil later that day, which isn't exactly cheap. I was in quite the pickle. So, after debating and deliberating with my boyfriend, I put the shoes from heaven back on the shelf. He encouraged me to buy them and wait on the watch, but I knew it was smarter to save my money. This obviously put me in a bit of a blue mood.
But, we passed Payless and I went in because I had a $10 gift card to use. What did I find? OXFORD BOOTIES. Not the same color, but definitely a suitable alternative. With my gift card I only paid $12. I was ecstatic.
Later that day I went and bought my new watch and bracelet. I'm in love with this watch just because it's so big! I'm definitely a fan of chunky watches. I'll be incorporating my new items into outfits soon, but for now here are some pictures of the famed items:
