WHAT NOT TO DO WHEN SHOPPING

One thing that I DON’T do when I shop is limit myself to my true size. Honestly, some pieces look better oversized. For example, I usually wear size S, however, the jacket shown below is size XXL. I honestly like the look of this size better than I would have if it was a size small. If you read my last post, you know about MY #1 RULE WHEN IT COMES TO SHOPPING. And thanks to that rule, I found this flippin’ awesome jacket! It was originally marked $29.99 at Target, but I ended up getting it for $14.99!! As my sister and I like to say, WHAT A STEAL! I’m so excited to use this jacket in the fall, as it’s light but also keeps me warm in the wind. As we walked around the flea market today, it got pretty chilly and sprinkled off and on. This jacket was perfect for a day like today because it was thin enough to carry around when I didn’t need it, but warm enough to keep me cozy during the cool weather. I can’t wait to use this as a frequent piece this autumn !!

MY #1 RULE WHEN IT COMES TO SHOPPING

When it comes to shopping, I tend to get very excited. But honestly, who doesn’t?! Whether I’m out and about shopping in stores, or just shopping online, I always stick to one rule. I can’t pick out anything in the full-priced retail section, until I’ve looked through clearance! This routine has saved me soo much money! Honestly, it’s hard for me to shop sometimes because I don’t have tons of money to spend, but I do have a love for clothes. That being said, I’ve gotten very good at saving money and finding about 98% of my clothes for less than $20. One of my favorite things to do is digging through secondhand stores or the clearance rack at target to find super cute clothes or clothes that might have potential! In the picture below (with my adorable mother), I’m wearing pants that I got for $4.30 at Goodwill, Birkenstocks that I got for $24 at Shoe Show, and a shirt that I got a while ago from Old Navy (but sadly, I don’t remember the price). Needless to say, shopping and style can be cheap if you’re willing to look for it!
