I do love my leggings from Coldwater Creek. I bought them last summer on clearance for $19 and they are the best leggings that I have ever owned! In fact, this whole look is only $30!! The purple top was $7 at Ross a couple of years ago and the fun ballet flats were $3 at one of my favorite local consignment shops, Garment Exchange. I love this type of outfit for shopping, running errands, or going to doctor’s appointments.

I also love the idea of Small Business Saturday which is today! This idea was started two years ago by American Express to call attention to our local small businesses. I watched an interview on CNBC this past week with Edward Gilligan, Vice Chairman of American Express. Here are the highlights:

1. Small businesses are vital to the American economy.

2. Two thirds of all new jobs created in the last twenty years came from small businesses.

3. Small Business Saturday is meant to stimulate the local economy and bring new customers to their doorsteps.

4. Gilligan said, “If we can get people to shop small and help raise the confidence of small businesses, I do believe that over time we will help to create more jobs.”

I really like this idea, so I am going to introduce you to some of our fun small businesses around San Antonio….just every now and then over the next month!! On Visible Monday, join me to find out what is so special about a hardware store!! As I go hunting for these fun little merchants, I will probably wear these leggings…so comfortable!!
