These shoes again indeed! This summer I’ve been making a concerted effort to to buy less (save more!) and when I do purchase make sure the pieces are versatile and able to be worn again and again. It’s also been forcing me to explore my closet more and pull out old favorites like these Zara printed pants which, bought 2 years ago, are still on trend because printed pants have continued to pop up everywhere. Shop more below.
Having traveled abroad this year I was reminded of why I work so hard. The trip was such a treat and I saved for it which made savoring it all the more special. It also made me realize that while I love to shop, I love to travel more and I love the memories I get from trips far more than I love new things in my closet. Silly that I needed to take a trip to realize/remember that, I know…but anything that reminds me the importance of saving is an A+ in my book. I’ve never been the best with finances but recent life lessons have showcased the importance of having money tucked away – in case of emergency – and – for a rainy day or worthwhile experience.
