Fall Jackets + Hello!

IMG_0692.JPG

Hi everyone!! It’s been a couple weeks since I last wrote a blog post and I think that’s because I am having a bit of an idea block lately. I have some ideas for blogs that I want to execute but now is not the time, so that leaves me like (……).

Anyways, the last time I blogged it was hot, today it’s cold. Somehow in a couple of weeks it went from Summer to Fall and honestly, I am kind of okay with it! I thought I’d check in today to say what’s up and that I am already stocking up on my fall jackets.

How I Shop on a Budget

Hi everyone! How are you all doing? I am almost at 100 followers here on WordPress and honestly, I cannot believe it. I am so excited you are all enjoying my content enough to follow along—so it means a lot to me!

Today I am sharing How I Shop on a Budget. My friends, family and sometimes people I don’t even know that well are always asking me, how do you have such nice clothes but you confess that you don’t spend a lot of money?

Well, I will let you in on my BIG secret. Here it goes (and you may think this is wacky, but it’s how ya girl stays on a budget): I have little price-points in my head for every article of clothing and if it meets that price-point or falls below it, I will usually get it (and that’s only if I am completely in love with the item or actually need it). If it’s above, well it better be a MUST HAVE or I am NOT getting it. Below I will share my price points for different clothing items that the price MUST fall below. *This is for everyday/weekend wear (meaning, if it is an important event, no, I don’t cap my dress price at $25.)*

Hi everyone! Long time no blog! Today I wanted to share my newest finds and purchases because well, I have been using these 4 things religiously! I love when I purchase something and it really impacts my every day life, because that means it was an investment. I almost laugh at the word investment because I never purchase anything over $20…but for me, investment.

Hidden Gems

IMG_8019Happy Sunday, everyone! Today I am writing about how and where to find the best pieces, that fit your style and wardrobe!

The idea for this blog post came to mind, because in the picture above, I am wearing a $4 sweater that I found at the place my grandma lives! It goes to show that you don’t have to be looking in the trendiest place to find such a gem. This sweater probably has a story that I may or may not want to know about, but the fact that it is mine now is so cool to me!
