Why buy a cow, when milk is so cheap?




Our vacation started with a trip to a water park in Wisconsin Dells and ended with a visit to Chicago. I've lost count how many times I've been to Chicago, till date, but still every time it is as exciting as the very first time.
I still remember the day when I first stepped on to this country, and of course, it was Chicago where my flight landed. It was the first day of Spring but still the city was covered in snow.  I remember how elated I was to see the snow! Our hotel room was on the ground floor, and in the middle of the night I just opened the porch door and ran out in my sleepwear, without a coat, just to get the feel of the falling snow! Man, how did I even do that??
Anyway, coming back to the present,do I look tired? Hell yeah, I was dead tired! We walked a marathon that day and by the time we reached the hotel it was 2 am and yes, we slept like logs!

This dress is a no hassle dress- jersey material, easy to wash, no ironing required, no zipper, no buttons, just an easy onesie! The flats that I was originally wearing was my favorite pair of black glitter flats from Forever 21 which served me incessantly for the last two years and withstood many a tough days, but it finally gave in that day to the rigorous walking and I had to run to H&M and grab this pair of comfy flats.

I've always had the notion that good shoes are the branded, expensive ones. Well, this pair of flats proved me wrong.They were bought for $10 and served me two years, not a bad statistics, huh?
Someone so aptly said :  Why buy a cow, when milk is so cheap?

Today I'm linking up with  Two Thirt y-Five Designs  for Casual Friday.
