A while back I had mentioned that I was eager to get my hands on a peach or maroon pencil skirt. My attempts up until recently had been fruitless. That is until I walked into Forever21 a few days back and instantly fell in love with this little lace number. For under $25 bucks I gladly handed the cashier my debit card and walked away with a smile and a new skirt perfect for spring.
When I consider purchasing an item of clothing, I always mull over future outfit possibilities. Because why am I going to spend my hard earned money for something that is trendy but that I’ll only wear once, maybe twice? I usually go through the mental closet rolodex that I have stored in my brain and put together at least three ensembles. With this skirt, I knew I wanted to pair it a vibrant color, like this new-to-me blouse I picked for a mere $2.99. Add the LC Lauren Conrad lilac wedges I’ve become obsessed with and some peach accents and I’ve got outfit numbero uno. Some future outfits include spring layering and a more casual look with sneakers.
How do you justify wardrobe purchase?
