Shopping is a personal thing. We all have different styles, budgets and looks we are trying to achieve. So when it comes to your go-to store, we may all have different opinions and thats a-ok. As many of you may already know, my shopping go-to is Zara. They are always on trend, have exactly what I am looking for and all for a reasonable price. Recently they marked down all of their fall/winter merchandise to make room for spring, so I have been loading up that online cart a bit more than usual.
This plaid shirt-dress was a major score for me because of it’s extreme versatility. When shopping, I don’t usually gravitate towards fads or trendy pieces. If I make a purchase, I want it to last at least two seasons, no matter what the cost. So I try to keep my purchases classic. I will be wearing this shirt-dress with jeans, tights and on warmer days with bare legs and tall boots.
Now lets talk splurges. When I am splurging on something, which really isn’t all that often, I make sure it is going to last. And by last, I mean a lifetime. I had been eying this fur vest for almost a year and finally a week ago, I decided to pull the trigger and bring it home with me. I know it is something that will last and won’t be going out of style anytime soon. I seriously have been living in this thing!
A Chanel bag has always been high on my wish-list and after a few family discussions, the hubs sprung for one for my Christmas/Birthday/Anniversary/Congratulatory gift for starting the new business. I think I must have sold him on the whole “investment piece” thing, after all, Chanel bags rarely lose their value.
So if you are someone who likes a good sale or someone who loves to indulge every now and then, well I am right there with yah sister and I have rounded up some shopping inspirations for both. Shop my look and other winter sales & splurges below.
