Recent Purchases

This will be my last recent purchases post for the winter season.  More & more lately, I have been thinking about how much I already own (some of which I'm not even using!) and it's made me realize that I have been buying more than I truly need.  As I mentioned in this Instagram, I have been feeling convicted about my level of consumption & this is something I want to change for 2015.  My site was founded with the belief that you don't have to spend a fortune to look stylish - and while I want to help you all find the best affordable fashion possible, I also don't want to be encouraging excessive or constant shopping.

My friend Karla & I are going on a 2-month spending freeze and anyone who is interested can feel free to join us (there's strength in numbers!).  I realize this seems unusual for a fashion blogger...but, it just feels like the right thing for me to do for the next 60 days.  I will still feature gifted/sponsored items that I have previously committed to (which are minimal).  But otherwise, I will be focusing on saving money, getting creative with the pieces I already own and, hopefully, encouraging you all to do the same!  With that being said, here are the items I purchased last month & a few styling ideas for how I plan to wear them.  In addition to the pieces above, I also bought this plaid coat, this fringe skirt, these soft joggers & this camel topper.
