What I'm wearing: Anthropologie top (sale), Gap blazer, Zara colored jeans, Target sandals, Urban Outfitters earrings, Mondani bag via Steinmart
I've noticed that over the past year or two, I have really become a "researcher" when it comes to shopping. Take this top, for instance. I saw this top on Anthropologie.com and absolutely adored it. I pinned the yellow version and dreamed up lots of ways I would wear it if it was mine. When Anthro had a big sale over Memorial Day weekend (which also happened to be my birthday), I purposely went in searching for this shirt. And I found it, for $30 less than the original price. I have found that when I research an item and really think about the purchase ahead of time, it helps eliminate buyers remorse and helps me fill my closet with things I love, not just things I decide I need spur of the moment. Right now I'm in fall clothing research mode, mainly focusing on tall riding boots and some new jeans. What can I say, I'm definitely a type A personality...a planner to a T!
