I Didn't Buy Any Clothes for a Whole Month and Here's What I Learned

What have you been up to over this warm weekend? Have you been taking advantage of the lovely weather?

Much to many of your surprise, I have not bought a single item of clothing in a whole month! I have to admit I am a bit proud of myself. I know, I know, a month is not that long. Anyway, I was inspired by my idol, Megan Ellaby, and the fact that I need to save some cash here in London. To survive off my current wardrobe so to speak, rather than adding things here and there, was the challenge. These are the things I learned along the way.

Conquering my Fear of Flares

Hope you all enjoyed the weekend. Hopefully today has been a good reset day for the week ahead. I’ve spent the day with my brother exploring the on of the best vintage markets in London and eating amazing food. I love showing the people I love around the city I love!

As you, probably know all too well by now, I enjoy giving myself a good fashion challenge, and this week is no different. This week, I’m conquering another one of my fashion fears; the 70s classic, flares! This particular pair is from H&M, and I thought the cream color would be great for spring/summer.

Put It In Neutral

How are you guys doing this week? Comment down below with how you’ve been and what you’ve been up to this weekend. You know I’m always nosey, and what to hear about what you’re up to.

This year one of my fashion goals has been to challenge myself to make neutrals exciting again. They’ve been all over the runways and street-style stars recently, and I want to try it out myself. While I’ve become inclined to grab a punchy pink sweater rather than a subtle camel one, I want to make myself a bit more comfortable with the classic tones again. I think it’s important to have that balance of color and neutral in my wardrobe and know how to navigate both seamlessly.
