Whenever a new season begins I try to come up with a way to stop my excitement from getting the best of me. I love clothes and I love styling so a new season always feels like a fresh start and an opportunity to shop.
I've really had to work on breaking my bad habits. I get bored with my clothing easily, I really really enjoy shopping, and I put far too much value in new things. You would think that bad shopping habits are really trivial, but it has taken a long time for me to change.
This spring I will be spending my clothing budget on fewer pieces that are higher quality. I've also been trying to buy pieces that I really love instead of buying a bunch of pieces that I like. I would always try to get as many pieces as I could with my budgeted amount but now I'm really trying to just focus on quality, even if I only walk away with a couple new items. None of these concepts are new but now I am trying to finally put them into practice. I'm also rewearing the clothes in my closet a lot more than I have in the past, and I always thought I was someone who rewore a lot before. One of the pieces I bought during our Robson Street shopping trip (which I will be posting this Thursday when I host my GIVEAWAY) has already been worn 5 times. It's really shown me what happens when I actually love the clothes in my closet.
I bought this Club Monaco skirt a few months ago with a gift card and I combined it with a few spring-y pieces I've had in my closet for a few years. I'm really looking forward to wearing different variations of this outfit (or, who am I kidding, this exact outfit) this spring.
