bang for your buck!

wishlist - 2

The key to building an efficient wardrobe is finding pieces that can be re-worked into multiple outfits.  To accomplish this, a productive exercise when shopping is to think about what you can pair back to the item you’re eyeing – whether it be with something that exists in your closet or one that you need (i.e., a good pair of denim!).  If you can create 3 – 5 outfit ideas in your head on the spot, this item has potential for a lot of wear (which will also help you determine if it’s worth the investment)!  I recently made this fall wishlist post which included key seasonal pieces like a playful sweatshirt and leather skirt.  Here are four outfit ideas (there are much more!) styled from the edits adding accessories and basics to complete the look!  Your closet doesn’t need to be busting at the seams with endless items.  Always remember, less is more!  Strategizing your wardrobe will not only help you save space and money, but will force you to think about purchasing pieces that you love thus will go the distance.  Happy shopping ya’ll!  xx jenny
