I’m sure you’ve heard the rule about picturing potential purchases with items you already own, right?! Whenever you find something you’re thinking about buying, you should always picture it with at least 3 items you currently own. Doing this allows you to gauge how often you’ll wear it, and the CPW (cost per wear) for it. If you buy a cute skirt that you can only wear with one specific shirt, how often are you really going to wear it?! Say you pay $30 for that skirt and wear it twice — that’s costing you $15 each time you wear it! If you’re a budget shopper like me, you definitely want to get the CPW as low as possible. Another way to do this is to shop with coupons, or sales only! I rarely ever pay full price for an item!!
If you’re anything like me, you always want to have a bomb birthday that you’ll remember for awhile. Well this definitely was! And at the right time too – my super special 25th! It had been nearly a year and a half since I had been to the beach, so I was extra excited to take this mini-vacay for my birthday. Not to mention, I got to spend the entire weekend with my man, who I rarely get to see! Needless to say, I had to plan my outfits with my passion in mind — starting a fashion blog and Instagram account to inspire people.
