My post today is a little shopping guide for the sales season. January and February are months when we tend do spend a bit more because there are "awesome" sales going on. More often than not, we end up buying things only because they were amazing deals but, did we really need them? Are we going to make a lot of use out of them?
PLAN AHEAD OF TIME:
Before hitting the stores, it's better to have an idea or a plan and even writing it down on paper or in your phone's agenda helps us prioritize the key items that we are really looking to buy.
STAY AWAY FROM TEMPTATION:
If you're trying not to go too crazy on sales, try to stay away from shopping malls or window shopping as these "activities" will certainly tempt you to buy more than you originally planned! Plus, there are so many more interesting ways to spend time than going shopping, trust me!
STAY WITHIN BUDGET:
But if you need a certain piece or need to renew your wardrobe for the season, always keep in mind to stay within your budget and only buy things that you really need and that look great on you - things that you'll actually want to wear more than just a few times!
MY SUGGESTIONS ON VERSATILE FASHION PIECES:
Here are some suggestions of mine and pieces that I picked up during this winter's sales.
Simple blue skinny jeans are great for any occasion.
Faux Suede Coat in Taupe is ideal for spring time!
Black bodysuit with lace details (goes great with high wasted pants, or jeans).
ASOS DESIGN - Suede Leather Mix Backpack.
100% wool hat by Woolrich which is super warm. I love the red pop of color in my winter wardrobe.
I tried to buy things that I'll be able to use a lot and that won't go out of style with the next season! I hope this inspired you.
Feel free to share with me your recent purchases!
