« Pump up Your Workday with Hot Pumps | Main | Balm on Your Highlight »

The two most valuable pieces of fashion advice I have ever received are as follows:

1- Don't ever wear the belt that the dress came with
2- Don't go shopping without a list

I rarely head to Whole Foods without a post-it note filled with doodles of that evening's dinner ingredients/bread/toilet paper/etc, so it makes perfect sense to refrain from walking into a busy mall or logging into my favorite online shopping portal without a list of key pieces that I really want need.


My current list, for instance, reads as follows:

crisp, white skinny jeans
black strappy sandals
peasanty tunic blouse
a dress to wear to my husband's cousin's wedding
bright hued pencil skirt
ripped boyfriend jeans to replace my old Levi's that are now a size too big (thanks Jillian Michaels)!

This simple process keeps me from becoming overwhelmed and distracted by pretty mannequin displays and sales racks so that I can remain on track without succumbing to unnecessary impulse buys.

Try it next time and you might avoid coming home with 8 bottles of sundried tomato pesto and olive tapenade when you just needed milk.
