In years past, I’ve done a No Shopping Challenge during the month of January to reset, go through my closet and really figure out what I do and don’t wear. I didn’t get the chance to do it last year because of my growing baby bump, but I’m planning on teaming up with some girlfriends for a No Shop February (catch my post on their experience last year here) next month.
I know many of us have reasons we want to cut down on shopping and shop smarter – maybe you don’t have enough space in your apartment (guilty!), maybe you want to save money for something special (who doesn’t!), maybe you finally organized your closet and don’t want to make it any more of a mess (guilty again). Whatever your reason is, one of my main tips to shop smart is finding items you can wear in multiple settings. Work to weekend tops are my go-to for this and Loft often has some of my faves. This floral print is perfect for work paired with black pants or a skirt but can just as easily be worn on a night out with jeans and some fun accessories as in this outfit!
I personally went through a major closet clean out over the last two weeks! Before Nicholas arrived our second bedroom was a guest room so I had fully taken over that closet. I just now got all my stuff cleared out of there- only took me my whole pregnancy plus seven months to get it down ;). I feel like the closet clean out is everywhere with the new year and the Marie Kondo show on Netflix. I definitely feel so much better now that I checked it off my list and so ready for the new year! Now to keep shopping smart in 2019!
What are some of your favorite items to wear multiple ways? Have you done any organizing with the start of the new year?
