My husband brought it to my attention that lately whenever I want to justify a purchase, I call it an investment. Busted! I laughed and agreed with him, but also tried to explain my new mindset in buying retail: the idea of less but better. I still gawk at shoes that cost over $50 or wince at jeans that are priced the same as a flight home, but I'm learning to adjust how often I purchase as well. Both Tim and I get an allotment of spending money each month. I'm working on not feeling the need to spend it all upfront, but rather to zero in on something I'd like to invest in and use more than one month's spending allowance toward it. (Note: this is a work in progress and I'm not always successful in the effort!)
Today I thought I'd share a few items that I'm looking to pounce on that are, most certainly, investment items. I'm looking at a few super classic items that would help make the core of a more refined and simple wardrobe.
+ sunglasses. I think it may be time to bite the bullet on a pair of Rays!
+ mid-rise skinny denim. At 24, I've finally figured out that low rise is not for me. Neither is anything non-skinny.
+ flat booties. I feel like I could wear 'em every day and never tire of the look.
+ parka. It's fine time I replace my puffy black coat that's been with me for 7 years. It's time.
+ espadrilles. The ideal warm-weather footwear staple, no?
+ jumpsuit. Specifically a comfortable one for days when putting together an outfit seems an uphill battle!
+ dainty gold jewelry. Recently, this is the only jewelry I'm drawn toward wearing. Simplicity!
