Without really intending to, I haven’t bought a single thing this month. Yes, we’re merely two weeks in, but after a big spending month in December, it feels nice to be thinking extra hard about purchases and fighting off temptation. (Also I thought it should be noted that typically buying clothes for me is an easy justification because I blog full time. I think it goes without saying but still worth mentioning that buying/wearing clothes for my blog is part of the job and how I make money with affiliate links. Big perk.)
Because of that easy justification though, sometimes I make purchases really quickly knowing that they’ll perform well on my blog without thinking about how they actually fit into my closet (literally) and my wardrobe (figuratively).
As I unintentionally started the month without buying anything, I’m going to stick with it through the end of the month. Luckily January is a pretty uninspiring month to purchase for. In December I was all heart eyes for plaid, tartan, red, and cool sweaters. Now it just feels like winter. Even still, I have found a few things that I will definitely put onto the wish list pile.
I actually made some real resolutions this year and one is being more financially savvy and a component of that is being more selective about purchases. But a girl can still look right?
Burberry Trench Coat | This is actually more of a confession. I’ve been lusting over a classic Burberry trench for years. I tried one on over Thanksgiving when I hit a particular goal of mine and then I couldn’t get it out of my head. I ended up buying it in the wrong size accidentally, exchanged for the right size, and then it sat on my counter for a week. I felt so guilty about it and ended up returning. Problem is that I still can’t stop thinking about it so I think I’m going to keep it on my wish list for now and revisit in the spring!
Multistripe Painter T-Shirt | This long sleeved striped tee is too cute. I love a good striped shirt and wear them almost all year round. I have a feeling this will ultimately go on sale anyway so I definitely don’t mind waiting!
M. Gemi Heels | How amazing are these bow heels? The unique bow was modeled after a sash from a vintage dress one of the cofounders of the company had. Also comes in red (for Valentine’s Day anyone?) and black.
Bow Placket Silk Top | I really like this top. A lot. It seems like the perfect top to throw on with jeans for an extra put together casual look or with black pants and pumps for a dressy occasion. I can’t get those bows out of my head! Too cute!!!
Anything on your wish list right now?!
