5 tips for shopping

Lately I’ve really been looking for key pieces for my wardrobe. Clothes I can wear for a long period of time, like a timeless white shirt or black blazer. I used to buy things on a whim.¬†Sometimes only because they where cheap. And a lot of clothes were only worn once and then found themselves on their way to the thrift store. So I want to share five tips that help me when I shop. If you can check of every point on this list then there is no doubt that you should buy it.

Like everything! 
You have to actually like everything on that new piece you want to buy. If something throws you off or makes you question this new clothing then leave it, in the end it won’t be worth your money.

Price range 
Find a price range you are comfortable with. Go shopping with a budget and it will narrow down your options.

Limited items
Before you go on your shopping trip set yourself a limited amount of items your allowed to buy. That way you won’t go all crazy and your wallet will thank you later.

Online shopping
Go online window shopping first. Check out your favorite stores website and brows through their new merchandise. This will make your actual shopping go smoother and quicker. You know what you need, or want, and once you’re in the store you can easily ask a sales assistant to help you.

If you can’t stop thinking about it – buy it!
This is my best tip because if you really love something and still think about it after a week, it’s meant to be. So don’t hesitate to buy it once you can’t stop thinking about it.

Already getting started

As you may know I love to travel and get butterflies the day before the departure. I can hardly sleep and go through all of the things I might have forgotten to pack. But packing is one of the best parts when going on vacation. A month before I already look in my closet and find things that might be suitable to take with me. And it just wouldn’t be right without a few new clothes, so I go shopping and make sure that those clothes can be worn and taken with me on my summer holiday. A week before I dust of my suitcase which hasn’t been used since last summer but that doesn’t matter cause now it’s finally time to pre-pack. Yes, pre-pack which basically means I find clothes I want to take with, put them on my bed, then sort out pieces that really aren’t necessary to take with and you can just forget that I’m taking the same clothes I took last year. No, this year I will have a whole new wardrobe with me on holiday. Then I pack down those things I feel worthy of taking with me and then the day before I have to close my suitcase I go through my clothes ones again. Just to make sure that I have everything and also to take out stuff I really don’t need, cause everyone knows that girls always take too much with them.
So here are just some things I want to take with me this year. I still have to find my travel outfit, but I have narrowed it down to two choices.
