Before the Splurge
As a fashionista, I always love seeing and staying up to date with the latest trends! Before shopping for a new season, I go through my entire wardrobe and make sure to get rid of some old pieces to make room for new ones. This also gives me the opportunity to sell my clothes to thrift stores for some extra spending money on my new wardrobe. Read more about how I clean out my closet by clicking here.
Being a “Blonde on a Budget”, I try to purchase pieces that I know I can get a lot of use out of, can easily transition from business to playtime, and will carry throughout seasons.
Before making the initial investment, I like to do my research. I usually go to the mall, walk around Soho, and pop into my favorite stores to get inspiration and see what is trending all around. If I continuously see the same colors, patterns, or styles, I know that they are popular for the season and worth a purchase.
The below is what I find to be trending for Summer and Spring, but also pieces that I actually bought during my personal shopping spree. Click on the pictures to shop the items! Enjoy!
