Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

I love to go shopping, and when I find that perfect piece of clothing, accessory, or item for the home it makes it all the more fun.  My husband doesn't care for shopping much, so when my girls are around, I have the best time spending a carefree day with them.  This weekend, Jess and I hit all the shops, and I even bought her a few goodies to take home.  The sites around the stores also add charm in a day of shopping.

Jess found a purse in this pretty shop that can be worn with many different outfits.


I found a pair of white shoes that I liked too.

These cups at Anthropologie reminded me of red rose alley.

Then, we headed over to Pier 1 Imports and browsed through their Easter décor.

I hope to have another shopping day in a couple of weeks, with Nel included.  Shopping is a way to clear the head and let everything go, and at the same time spend the day with our favorite people.

What a fun day, Sheri! Shopping is always a good thing, right :) Love the shoes - perfect for the warm weather.

Love and hugs to you!

Sheri, My daughters and I used to go shopping every Spring. I would get my tax return and share with them. I knew they never had the money to shop like that from their own budgets. Doing good to get them together for that. Maybe at the end of April. Hopefully. So I know that you had a blast with your daughters. Love your shoes. xoxo,Susie

I think Spring is the most fun time to shop....all the pretty Spring colors. I'm always ready for a change and some new outfits, aren't you? Love that pretty handbag...jewelry and handbags are a weakness of mine! Enjoy your day my friend! Hugs, Diane

I so agree with you Sheri,
To go out with a friend shopping clears the head.
I might go, and not buy anything. But even looking at the nice decor and things on display give me enthusiasm to change a few things around in my place..
love the bag.
adore your shoes.
I have'nt been to the city yet, but am sure the Easter decorations will be out.
you had a great day.
love val xxxx

Mother/daughter shopping is so memorable. I am sure Jess is extremely appreciative of your generosity. Shopping therapy is good for what ails us. Don't you just love holding a shopping bag that's full of goodies? I see that you do. Jess's new pocketbook is so pretty. And enjoy those cute shoes!

Merlesworld said...

Wondering around the shops is always a good way to kill a couple of hours and having coffee and cake is good too.

Shopping with those we love is such good therapy! And if we buy something, even better. Looks like a fun day. Thanks for sharing it with the rest of us!

You must have a wonderful day spending time with Jess AND shopping! Love the shoes.

I always believed that men didn't like shopping but my sons and hubby love to shop too, so I'm a lucky girl :)


Saesa Canta said...

Shell said...

Hi Sheri

You are definitely a girl after my own heart. Unfortunately my sons don't share my passion but of course I always mange to find a girlfriend handy who is happy to join in a little retail therapy.

I love your purchases and Pier one is not in Australia but I wish it was !!!

Cheers - Shell, A Darlings Nest

I love it when the girls come home and we chat, lunch and shop and dream just a little too!
Oh what a splendid and sunny day it was for your shopping outing and I also recognize some of my favorite stores...

Our girls are delightful aren't they!

Charlotte Wilson said...


It looks like you had a fabulous time! And found some goodies to boot!

The Sage Butterfly said...

Sounds like you had a wonderful day shopping. Once this weather clears up, I hope to have those lovely days, too.

Ana said...

Aww Sheri, sounds like you and your daughter had a wonderful mother/daughter day...I just love those days when I get to spend quality time with my daughter. Oh and Charming Charlie's is one of our favorite girly stores :-) Sending you a great big hug.


forgetmenot said...

Sheri, Looks like you did very well for the day. Always fun to go shopping with daughters or a good friend. I find when I go with my daughter, she does most of the shopping and I do most of the paying, but I don't mind at all. Have a great weekend. Mickie ;)

Barbara Bermond said...

Nice post!
The purse look so pretty!


Teresa said...

I hate shopping. In fact I go shopping the men's way - you know, hit the store, grab what you want and head for the fast line at check out ahahahahah
Maybe if I had a shopping buddy like you do I'd feel more inclined to but I doubt ;).
What's the name of the store where Jess bought the purse? (don't be too revealing but we have a store in Portugal that has the same kind of exhibitors and the same king of fabrics. Ours is called "Parfois").
Glad you had fun and are already planning in returning. I live all those experiences I hate vicariously through your eyes and enthusiasm.
