OOTD: more house shopping

Hello lovelies,

It's been busy-ish around these parts lately.  We're still house-hunting!  I can't believe it, I really thought we'd find a place and it would have all worked out by now!

Here's what I wore to tromp around looking at largely disappointing houses in the rain:

Outfit details:
Sweater shirt: Macy's, clearance, $20!  It's a linen blend and I love it.
Jeans: z cav's, torrid, awhile back
old lady boat shoes: grasshoppers
hat: target

Yesterday, as we were going to yet another open house, the annoyingly chipper agent asked us why we hadn't "pulled the trigger" on a house yet.  Well, the truth is, lady-that-I-don't-know, we HAVE.  FIVE TIMES.  Just none of the offers have worked out for reasons outside of our control, like the house inspection revealing catastrophic problems, or a short sale going badly after months of waiting, or being outbid by other offers, etc.

We're understandably more than a little frustrated, and more than a little ready to be done with the search.  So the chipper agent-lady-we-didn't-know?  Said, and I'm not kidding, "Well, you've really missed out on those historically low interest rates by not finding a house yet".  Yep.  Way to kick us while we're down.  Thanks, lady. **

I smile to hide the tears.

Anyways, sorry to vent!  I never do that on here.  How are all of you doing?  Tell me something good that is going on for you!

**ETA: This wasn't our agent! Our agent is great! This was just the agent at one of the open houses we dropped by.
