the bad side....

the bad side of my brain got ahold of me yesterday. I don't know about you but every once in a while it gets me and makes me do things i don't want to do.......like shopping. I don't necessarily WANT to shop, but the bad side of my brain FORCES me to. I have been eyeing this shower curtain from Anthro {duh} for a while now. ....actually just a few weeks to be exact. So after i dropped the kids ALL off at school after a LONG weekend, i decided that a trip to Anthro was necessary.



Hello new Madoleine shower curtain!


she's a shabby,cottage, frenchie new addition to my petite bathroom in my petite farmhouse cottage....



Do you like that chandi above? I do. I love it. There will be some more in shop soon......




Stop here before you read on. .....because right next to Anthro was Gap. Now, normally i'm not a gap girl. sorry, i'm just not. BUT........i saw a sign in the window that said "SALE".

The bad side of the brain saw it also and dragged me in.....

sunburn and all.

long winters in the midwest does bad things to us.........we think that the first warm long weekend requires sitting outside ALL weekend with no sunscreen on.

BAD BRAIN.









But bad brain got a good deal on this grey dress. .......and the last one was just my size.

I've got one of those brains too. Ha! Love the shower curtain...and the dress. At least your BAD brain has GOOD taste!

Jill said...

You are one of the only other people I "know" who would get equally excited as I would over a shower curtain. I have the layered ruffled curtain from Anthro in my girls' bathroom - love it. The dress looks perfect for a day at Farm Chicks!
Have a great day...I am off to do the same thing you did yesterday.

Urban Farmhouse said...

Great post! You look adorable in that dress!

blue moss said...

love the shower curtain and fabulous dress....
the bad side of your brain has now gotten the bad side of my brain itching to go shopping :)

*The Beautiful Life* said...

Oh yeah...I know just what you mean about the "dark side", having an "evil shopping twin"! :)

Mine gets me in SO much trouble at Anthro and Williams Sonoma...I thought moving out to the "country" would help (since I now have to drive at least 1/2 to get to those stores) but then I discovered that my "evil shopping twin" is an EXPERT at navigating the web and goes online at all hours buying up things at Anthro's & Williams Sonoma's websites! YIKES! ;)

Thanks for the post -- cute dress! You pull it off perfectly and I agree -- its perfect for Farm Chicks! :)

Anne Marie said...

maybe you have the two mixed up! maybe the bad side is really the good side ;)
and I too, totally love the dress and really got a chuckle out of the previous post of the girls outside discussing baby...funny how it starts so young! I wonder what she would have done if she was sitting there alone....

Federica said...

Wow that bad side is fantastic!
The bathroom is so pretty!
Love your dress!

Backyard Candle Co. said...

Your bathroom is super cute and love the little birds on the chandelier instead of candles!

goddessof4 said...

Love the dress and new shower curtain!!!!!! I was just looking at one to buy from the shabby chic collection last night but was with hubby and I knew he would be like "why are you buying a shower curtain when we have a good one already?" So I will go back next week and get it!!!!! It was warm here on Sat. but turned COLD again!!!!! Oh yeah LOve the chandie too!!!!! Sara

Susan said...

So that is what I can call it when I go to the store and spend money I don't have on things I really don't need. I wonder if Hubby would accept that it wasn't me it was my bad side. It's certainly worth a try! Shopping here I come!

littlebyrd said...

Oh - I love the dress so much on you! It's not bad,it is very very good. Good brain.

Jen r. said...

Very cute! Yesterday must've been a busy day! Love the dress!

Michelle@Fromhousetohome said...

Damn Kasey, now I'm mad at you!! I tried that dress on over the weekend but they didn't have my size. :( I was SO bummed. It looks fab on you though. *sigh* At least the kids got bathing suits and stuff. *double sigh*

i love a good confessional blog entry!
i bought the white ruffley anthro shower curtain for my girls bath last year. i love it but my scrawny master bath wouldn't do it justice. the girls bath is the firs room as you walk upstairs...i love to see that curtain -all white & pretty...except when they get their mascara and orange shaving cream on it....surely you wont have that problem.
the bath chandi is just perfecto
they grey dress is just perfecto too
hugs

You're such a cutie; even when you're being bad. No, especially when you're being bad! ;O)

Sarah said...

Fabulous grabs today! I like your dress! I have realized that while I enjoy color everywhere, I flock to black and white typically when I choose clothing...what is that?
I LOVE the new shower curtain!!! So chic!!! Where did you find that perfectly sized chandi? My husband would think I have lost my mind if I put one in our bathroom, but I would love to do it!!! I have wanted to for about 5 years now! Sigh...

Raining Pearls said...

I am coveting that chandi... I can not wait until you have it at the shop!

Cute Sundress :)

Jackie said...

All of it FAB!! Way love that chandie...hmmmm.

Leah C said...

My "bad brain" must be in overdrive because I love to shop...even when I shouldn't! And every year, it makes me forget how easily one can get sunburned in spring:)

Melissa Miller said...

Very elegant and detailed. Love it and the chandy! :)

PS You made me sad about Kirklands...:(
Not many places to shop in this teeny town.

Good for you! We really need to 'treat' ourselves every now and then. Such a sweet dress- yes, FAB!

Bay said...

Nice bathroom! Oh one more reason to covet your house! ::sigh::
Love the shower curtain. Love the chandi, now I want one to hang in my shower. Love the dress and love the Gap even though I don't often love everything in the Gap, you do find little treasures. So glad the bad forced you to get such wonderful little finds.

I wish I could blame shopping on the bad side of my brain. Unfortunately it's the whole thing:) I LOVE THE SHOWER CURTAIN! Of course. Cutey dress. I love Gap jeans and white tanks. Well gotta go I have shopping to do;) Is your store open yet????
