Maine -the Shopping Post


Okay I can't run. Not much to blog about so it's a great time to showboat my Maine shopping purchases for those who care.
This shirt is from LL Bean and looks quite good.  After I had already bought some stuff I realized I didn't get this. I didn't know if I left it hanging in the dressing room or what. So I went back. I may have gotten a few more things, one rather expensive one.

Horny Toad dress - I have 3 similar to this plus one with short sleeves. It is a very flattering dress as well as being very comfy. It was upstairs in the bargain section (most of Freeport, Maine is outlets) and it was another 30% off that. And it was my size. I HAD to get it.

LL Bean I had seen these quite expensive stretch jeans in the catalogue - supposedly feel like sweatpants. They were in the outlet and were an additional 50% off so once again I had to get them.

LL Bean -  a dress I had seen in the catalogue and wanted to look at. Flattering. Not on sale.

Okay. This is what I got when I went back to L.L. Bean. I so didn't need it.  I had liked it the first time but didn't like the color. Then I noticed they had more and some in this color, my current favorite.  Did I need a new jacket, flattering, lightweight and fun for biking and running?  You probably know the answer to that.

I didn't forget my buddy, Jaxon.  We went to Congdon's for breakfast.  The woman who helps in my class for lunch and recess and is the most wonderful assistant in the world thinks Congdons has the best doughnuts anywhere.  I had tried them a few summers ago and didn't think so. But we went there for breakfast and I had a couple more - only for test purposes.   I still don't think so but both my friends I went with do.  Haven't they ever been to Middlebury Bagel Bakery who easily makes the best doughnuts anywhere!  Anywhere!

I got this shirt at Patagonia. It was the only one left. It was in my size.  It is pink. It was $6.
And it has a bike on it.  Enough said.

This falls heavily into the I didn't need it category. But it was on sale at Nike and was an additional 30% off that. And it is kind of fun.

Columbia - one of my favorite outlets. They didn't have a lot this time (that's how outlets are) but I loved these pants.  7 dollars.

On sale for almost nothing at NIke and I had to get it.

On sale at Nike but not for almost nothing. 
Another style I have thousands of.  Loved the gray and orange though.

LL Bean. This is for my son. (Sh it's for his bday.) When I took him the dog cookies he 
was wearing a similar looking shirt. I asked him where he got it and he told me I got it for him at LL Bean. He went on to say it was one of his favorite shirts.  (wrinkle resistant is good for him)  

And that's it.  That's enough.  Except for the jacket everything was a good or great price.  Do you buy things you don't need? Do you have a certain thing you buy a lot of?  Shoes?  Purses?  Jackets are the worst for me.

Oh my gosh...what fun! I want to go shopping now! Awesome purchases! I have a pair of stretchy jeans that are super comfy and so cute. Love them.

Right now I've spent so long saving for bikes that I haven't spent much on clothes in AGES. That's going to change just as soon as I get our bills paid down!

That's what I call a successful shopping expedition. You scored big time! And that pink t shirt had your name on it, of course you couldn't NOT buy it.

Oh my goodness, I am overwhelmed by your shopping prowess and endurance. I am particularly drawn to the Horny Toad dress, jeans, turquoise jacket, patagonia T with the bike on it (VERY important detail!!!) and the donut stop. Did your donut stop fuel and kick start your day well? Those little gems must have MUST have fueled well and kept you from bonking on your marathon of a shopping spree! Very well done!!!

Wow a marathon of shopping! Did you get a medal when you checked out? Great haul!

Jill said...

Wow, you bought more than I do in an entire year! My favorite is the $6 bike shirt, love it! All will look great on you, though...aren't dresses awesome to wear to work? Love them!

Ok, I love that jacket! That's one of my favorite colors too and I'm always drawn to it!
Those dresses look cute and comfy.

Love all your purchases. Maybe I have to do that Maine race. I just got back from Peter Harris and bought a winter jacket that I didn't need but it was $50 reduced from $199.

Love the t-shirt! With me it's bags. I just never have the exact right bag for every occasion, so I have to keep buying new ones.

i LOVE that nike top! i never find that much stuff in freeport, so jealous :)

Lisa said...

I have a jacket that seems similar to the one you bought. It's surprisingly warm, actually. Mine is, at least.

Molly said...

ugh, sorry your foot is acting up, but HELLO you got some fabulous bargins!! I tend to buy grey sweaters, I don't know why I gravitate to them, but I love 'em.

Jamoosh said...

Well apparently you did not get anything for me. Note to file...

lindsay said...

LOL at jamoosh. Where is the giveaway?! :)

I'm jealous. Now I "need" to go to the outlets near me... It is a lot harder for me to not-buy workout/lounge clothes, but I do OK at saying no to work appropriate clothes... go figure. Great finds!
