It is OFFICIAL—I have totally neglected my wardrobe these past 3 months. Since the epic shopping trips I had in April while shopping for our wedding, I haven’t put much effort into buying anything – like at all. And I hate to say it but I don’t enjoy shopping the malls. I’m not sure if it’s because it all looks the same or that I window shop more than I try on, but I never leave completely satisfied. However, my sister-in-law, who lives in Queens, is the complete opposite. She loves to come to Columbus and shop out the malls, while I would kill for some NYC shopping. I guess the saying is true, “You want what you don’t have.”
I will say the one positive I’ve noticed since I hit my latest shopping drought, my wallet is happier! I’ll give myself props, when I do go shopping I have a budget in mind. I don’t see a point in spending much more than $30 on any piece of clothing, especially on items that may be out of style next season. I will spend a little bit more on things I use everyday—like a purse—or on some other classic—like denim, but that lace-up maroon bodysuit—yeah—that better be $20 or on sale if I’m going to give it a second look. Don’t get me wrong, I’m obsessed with bodysuits this season, but I CAN NOT justify spending a lot of money on something I will likely wear once—twice if I’m lucky.
So this evening, while trying to satisfy my shopping itch and stock up on some basics, I found some adorable steals & deals I just had to share. Each of these items is under $30, and most are under $20. With free shipping and free returns at most of these online stores, what is there to lose?
Now—what do I want to drink? This shirt ⇓ makes me thirsty…
