Shopping List

As part of my closet cleanout series (part 1, part 2), I wanted to talk a bit more about how I plan to shop moving forward. As I mentioned, I'm focused on four main goals: 

  1. Buy replacements, tossing/donating the old piece.
  2. Stay color focused - neutrals + pinks + blues. 
  3. Don't buy one piece in multiple colors.
  4. Shop with intention, from a focused shopping list.

I've started adding items to my shopping list, which I'll do my best to maintain here on the blog. It's a tab up top so you can check on my progress (or buy me presents - jk!) at any time. 

I thought I'd show you a few things I'm looking at currently, which may pop up in my September Budget Recap (August is clean with no purchases so far!).

Cream Knit Cardigan I got rid of mine because it just wasn't the right one. I don't know how to explain why, but part of it was that it had a tiny snag that had led to a hole that just didn't feel professional. But I wore it all the time, so I definitely need to replace it!

Skinny, medium-wash jeans I LOVE my LOFT skinnies, but it's time to get a more durable pair, as these are my favorite style and I wear them all the time. No distressing, no weird details - just a simple pair of skinnies to wear all the time!

Classic Button-down Blouse in White I had one and never wore it. But there were a million times I wanted to wear it - it just wasn't comfortable. So I'm on the hunt for that classic white blouse that I can wear with anything and everything! I'm torn on if I should go basic or if I should go with some fun details. What do you think? 

With all of the items above I'm finding TOO MANY options. But for cognac wedges, I'm not finding enough! I love my simple black wedges and need a tan/cognac pair for work. The Ipsy comes in a dark orange, which definitely isn't right. These come in almond, which also isn't right. My cognac flats are looking a little ragged lately, too, so I'm on a general cognac shoe hunt. Any favorites????
