Why is it that, without fail, every time I start Christmas shopping I end up finding so many things I want to buy for myself?! Does anyone else have this problem? This year I’m not even giving myself the option. As of November 1st I have issued a self-imposed shopping ban. Until the day after Christmas, this fashionista will be “shopping” in her existing closet only!
It might make my morning routine a little more frustrating … and there might be some pieces on the blog you’ve seen before … but the hope is that I will come up with new creative ways to utilize my current wardrobe.
Wish me luck! Here’s what I came up with yesterday:
One of my favorite things to do is “dress up” a pair of leggings. A flowy shirt, structued blazer, and a pair of classicly chic boots is an easy way to do it. Work appropriate and comfortable!
I thought it was fitting that I actually bought these boots last year … while Christmas shopping for my family … woops! I just couldn’t say no. But this year I’ll have to resist!
Shopping ban: 11 days down … 43 to go.
I’m leaving it up to you guys to keep me in line!!
