My New Blazer and No More Shopping

19 Aug

I mentioned on Monday that I got a blazer from Zara. I wasn’t planning on buying it, but it fit pretty well and I love how it looks.

The fit is actually pretty good. The sleeve length hits right at my wrist and the blazer sits higher on my hips than the ones I own. So all in all, a good purchase.

I’ve been trying to experiment a bit more mixing prints and patterns. The latest endeavor involves stripes, lace, and faux-cheetah print…I’m not sure if it works, but I like it.

Outfit Details: Zara blazer – XS, Urban Outfitters striped cami – XS, American Apparel lace bodysuit – XS, Ann Taylor Loft skirt- 00P, random amber necklace, Aldo pumps

For the rest of the month, I will not be getting anything new. It sounds simple enough, but I’ve gotten into the habit of buying at least one thing a week. That’s not a good habit to start having, so I need to break it before it truly becomes an issue. I need some time to get acquainted with my new items and assimilate them into my closet so I can make pretty outfits out of them.

Additionally, I need to stay away from shopping malls and online shopping sites because it makes me want to spend more money! Oh those tricky tricky advertisements and email coupons!

Boo.

    Hey thanks for stopping by my blog. You got the same skirt with a different print. I like this one too! I would never think of paring this skirt with blue striped top, but I think it works very well on you. The blazer is a very versatile color and it will work with a lot of your outfit. Good effort on staying somber from shopping. Good luck! 🙂

    Beautiful blazer!!! The gold toned necklace goes so well with it.

    Have you posted about the lace bodysuit before? I recently discovered them and I am trying to figure out how else I can wear them! 🙂

    You have such a way with mix and matching items! Good luck with the shopping ban! I’m consciously trying to cut back on spending too but I don’t want to ban myself because I think that’s just setting myself up for failure 😛

      Thanks. The shopping ban is technically only for two weeks, but I gotta start somewhere if I want to get better at reining in my shopping habits! =)

    I’ve on a shopping block for the month of September…like you, I keep buying new items each week. I really don’t need anything else! Time for a break!

    I love the way you mixed prints while staying really professional looking.
