Buy Only Things You REALLY Love

A self-indulgent walk down memory lane in honor of my 30th birthday with a daily picture from each year of my life and a lesson I've learned somewhere along the way.

2007


A few years ago before heading out on a shopping expedition I told myself, "You are only allowed to buy something if you REALLY FREAKING LOVE IT." I had a closet full of things I felt so-so about and it was super frustrating. I made it home from that shopping trip with a single top but that top has seen a LOT of wear since then and I still love it.

It can be really easy to talk yourself into buying something because it's trendy or a color you don't own much of or because it will go really well with that one skirt you don't wear very often because you don't have a top to go with it. BUT if you don't love it...don't buy it.

  1. Amen. Also, "Wow! This is cool!" Is not an acceptable reason for ANYTHING to come into my home anymore.
