We all seem to get into a shopper's frenzy around the end of Summer. With cooler temps promised to us around the corner, there's no better way to prepare than to go a little crazy and snap up as many new items as possible. I normally like to add pieces in slowly so that I don't make impulse purchases. I clean out my closet, take inventory of what I already have and what I am missing, and then I make a list. I also read my Fall fashion magazines, check out blogs and Pinterest, and then go from there to edit my wishlist. It seems like quite the process, but it really isn't. I find this is the best way to manage my money and prevent me from overspending. But let's face it, Fall is to fashion what football is to many, so I do let myself splurge a little. The darker jewel tones and the moody hues get me so excited. Even if Fall is a joke here in southern California, I take it quite seriously. Not to mention it's my big 3-0 tomorrow so the excuse to shop is real my friends!
Here's what I've added so far:
So what do you think? Have I made some wise choices so far? Neutral and basic enough, right?
Before I say "happy shopping", I'd like to thank you for making my 20's more bearable. I can't believe I'll be 30 years old tomorrow. I don't feel 30! Or at least I don't think I do (until I go to a bar and see how 20 year olds get along). It's hard to put into words, but I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your support and friendship. I started this blog when I was 24, and it's crazy to think how long ago that really was. Just when I get down on myself for not being where I thought I would be by the time 30 hit, I remember that life doesn't work that way, and that it's ok to feel a little "off" about it. So before I start rambling, I'll just say goodbye, and have a great day! See you next week on the other side :)
