Alright so I can't stop wearing this new hat, what of it? It literally goes with everything and was the perfect pop of color to my all black outfit. An outfit which I felt like Rachel Zoe in. It must have been the hat, shades and wide leg trousers...
As I attempt to remix my closet full of completely functional clothing I find that I'm extremely happy with last year's purchases. Not only did I stick to investing in quality timeless pieces but I find that my "must have" list continues to be closet staples verses extras and it's also a lot smaller than it was last year. #winning
This black cardigan is a piece I bought on a whim and seems to be tried and true. Of course, it's the mother of all staples and most often worn with a tank and leggings around the house on the weekends or nights after work. I last wore it on the blog here.
As far as spending goes I did do a wee bit of shopping in January. Here's what I got
BGBGeneration Panama Hat
For the new year I'm taking a different approach with my shopping allowance. I will be allotting a sum of money per season verses a monthly allowance. This will help me really choose where to spend my money and what I actually need/want to buy that's on trend. I feel that taking a seasonal approach is better because I wear most of my clothes inter-seasonally (is that a word?)
How do you budget? I'd love to know your tips and tricks!
