Smarter Purchases

This dress is definitely one of my favorite recent purchases! Kohl’s is one of my go to stores, and they are seriously killing it lately. I picked up this dress because it’s perfect for work, and I also plan on wearing it to a wedding we have coming up in August. Lately I’ve been trying to make smarter purchases, so I think of different places and different ways I can wear an item before deciding to buy it. I can see myself wearing this dress in a casual way as well, but my favorite way is definitely with my hot pink C. Wonder heels!

Do you have any rules for yourself before making a purchase?

    I love the heel height and detail on the toe box on those shoes! So not what I need right now, but I love them. You get great stuff at Kohls!

    This dress is so cute on you! I love Kohl's too, they are always my go to for dresses. I'm always surprised more people don't shop there.

    You look so lovely, Angela! Those pink heels are such a fun pop of color! I am trying to think through my purchases more lately, too, instead of impulse buying. You're so smart to pick up something that will work for a wedding too!

    LOVE THIS!!!! That dress looks amazing on you, and I love that you did the hot pink heels with it! Also that necklace? I am going to have to steal it from you…

    I don't necessarily have rules, but it does have to be versatile and fit into my wardrobe in more than one way. I never buy anything I'll only wear once or one way. P.S. You look cute!

    Loving the dress on you and the necklace is just awesome.

    Any time I try to create shopping "rules," they're forgotten as soon as something cute catches my eye. I'm weak!

    You look amazing! Everything about this dress is perfect on you! I especially like the beige-purple color and the snakeprint! I think it's time I took a trip to Kohls!

    I've been really impressed with Kohl's offerings lately too! I just bought a pair of white wedge sandals from there 🙂
    I really love this dress too–the color and cut will definitely make it a versatile piece!

    Love the color palette of that dress! Tie waists are great for creating the perfect fit. Have a great day!

    First of all, these photos are gorgeous! Your hair is so pretty and full of volume! I've been trying to make smarter purchases too. I keep a list of items I really want so I don't make spontaneous purchases.
