rules for wear

Remember when I said I would only buy 24 pieces of clothing this year? Yeah...I lied. BUT I have found myself thinking more before buying. I've also put back a lot of clothes before walking to the register, so we're making some head way over here. Baby steps people, baby steps. It doesn't help that I work at my favorite store, LOFT once a week. I do have some rules when shopping, and I thought I'd share them with you today as it's helped me immensely in my quest for clothes.

I also now have a list of things I'm looking for when I'm out. I have a tendency to get overwhelmed by all the pretty new things out there that I forget the one thing I "need." It helps keep me organized and focused on the item(s) I'm hunting for.

Do you guys have anything you look at before purchasing?


  1. These are good tips! I need to get better about checking washing instructions before buying things!

  2. These are great tips. I find myself buying clothes similar to what I already have because I know if I see something crazy and think I like it, I probably won't wear it.

    1. I do the same thing without trying to! Pretty sure I have three plain grey shirts right now but I wear them all the time and still look at other similar shirts while I'm shopping!


I love hearing from you so please leave a comment, however keep in mind "Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones."
