My post today is a little shopping guide for the sales season. January and February are months when we tend do spend a bit more because there are "awesome" sales going on. More often than not, we end up buying things only because they were amazing deals but, did we really need them? Are we going to make a lot of use out of them?
PLAN AHEAD OF TIME:
Before hitting the stores, it's better to have an idea or a plan and even writing it down on paper or in your phone's agenda helps us prioritize the key items that we are really looking to buy.
STAY AWAY FROM TEMPTATION:
If you're trying not to go too crazy on sales, try to stay away from shopping malls or window shopping as these "activities" will certainly tempt you to buy more than you originally planned! Plus, there are so many more interesting ways to spend time than going shopping, trust me!
STAY WITHIN BUDGET:
But if you need a certain piece or need to renew your wardrobe for the season, always keep in mind to stay within your budget and only buy things that you really need and that look great on you - things that you'll actually want to wear more than just a few times!
There are some famous on-line shopping destinations where you can get good deals, such as luvyle
MY SUGGESTIONS ON VERSATILE FASHION PIECES:
Here are some suggestions of mine and pieces that I'd pick up during this winter's sales to renew my wardrobe.
If you're looking for cute casual dresses here are some very cute and affordable pieces:
These dresses are very versatile so you can wear them for many different occasions. I love how they're easy to wear and easy to style, this definitely means that you'll get a lot of use out of them throughout the whole year.
Now it's also the right time to find that perfect pair (or two!) of women long pants
High waisted pants and palazzo pants are very popular this season, so here are a few models that I recommend:
And these following ones I had to mention, because they're super soft & cozy, great for lounging around the house!
I tried to get things that I'll be able to use a lot and that won't go out of style with the next season!
I hope this inspired you.
Feel free to share with me your recent purchases!
