Welcome back, happy Tuesday. The sun is shining (for today, yay snow on Thursday), the birds are chirping, and we are all still trudging along in this thing we call life. Today I am going to talk with you about something that should be taken VERY seriously. I am not kidding, your life will be forever changed if you take this blogpost to heart.
Now I don’t want to stress you out too much, but today, we will be discussing… shopping, and the best method to go about it. In my opinion, shopping should be a competitive sport, and if it were, I would be a top competitor, I am sure of it. Ya girl can shop, trust me. I used to be the girl that moaned and groaned when my mom dragged me from store to store because we had already hit up Limited Too, and there were no more lime green polka dot bikinis for me to buy (or my mom to buy for me).. but nowadays my mother attempts to throw in the towel after an hour-long stroll in Nordstrom, and send me on my way while she goes to get a margarita. This post is not about my mother’s love for tequila, so I can’t let myself get off track here..
I am here to tell you that whether you are shopping online, in store, or some other way I have never really heard of, there is a method to the madness to get the best shopping experience. To fully maximize your closet, you should start to shop like a fashion blogger.. and by that I do not mean buying 50 new things each month, but shopping in terms of seasonal necessities.
Now the exact numbers, brands, or articles are not as important as the idea behind it, but humor me and go along with what I say for now. This method is the best possible way to create your capsule wardrobe along with some seasonal pieces. The best place to start is to take inventory of your current closet, brush up on upcoming trends, and decide on how much you need to add to your wardrobe. Next, decide on the articles of clothing you need for that vacay, season, month, or event. I do this monthly, along with events and vacations. Make a list of what you need and prioritize the list by things you will wear most often, to the least often. You will want to get the pieces at the top of your list first, and then build the rest around those articles.
So here is an example, to show you that I am not crazy and kinda sorta know what I am talking about occasionally. (I will also include picture and shopping recommendations to show you how to build the perfect wardrobe) 🙂
Obviously this was just an example, but a very good starting point for creating your dream wardrobe! Boy oh boy was I a wealth of knowledge today! Using this guide will help you from overspending or buying things you don’t need, because you know exactly what that clothing supply of yours needs. 🙂 but please remember, always be browsing, and have no mercy when it comes to getting you some cute clothes. 🙂
