Pre-Christmas Shopping Ban

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!!

    Don’t leave it to me to keep you in line. We both know we are dangerous to each other’s shopping habits. :) Good luck!
