I started off my journey budgeting $100 per paycheck to ‘explore’ the world of fashion, but the more I explored, the more I found, and the more I spent. Here we are 3 months in and I’m realizing I’m getting carried away! I keep feeling like I’m looking at the same pieces in my wardrobe, but I’m learning that that’s OK nothing a little swapping won’t fix! Remember one of my first post on essentials? A fellow blogger took those 10 separates and created multiple looks! So in efforts to reel in my developing shopping addiction, I’m going back to my budget and doing more shopping in my closet.
It’s tough not to get caught up in trends because that’s what you see all over however, keep in mind what’s ‘hot’ now, might not be hot later and your pieces will begin to phase themselves out. Mix them in, but focus on classic pieces. I’ve equipped my wardrobe with the essentials and I think I’ve got this! I’m going to try in the next week to mix and match what I have in some new ways!
Do you give yourself a clothing allowance? How do you stick to it? Until next time, BE discipline in your journey so that you don’t get in too far over your head!
