Notice the Starbucks cup? It was 17 degrees out when we took these photos. Apparently neither snow, rain or below freezing temperatures will stop me from blogging. Literally on within two days the weather had changed from being 73 to the next day the high being 17. I love Kansas. Just love it.
During this month of no shopping I have really dug into my closet and found pieces that I struggle with styling or just plain flat don’t really wear that much. This elbow patch sweater is from a order last year with Dorothy Perkins and I never wear it because I have a hard time making it seem new and exciting every time I wear it. The cold actually forced me to layer and I am pretty happy with the result.
This whole month while not shopping, I have realized just how much I think about shopping. I think about when I have time to shop, where I can shop to save money (ironic), etc. During that time that I normally spend as a “break” from school and do some recreational shopping I have put towards personal projects or just resting. I am so glad that I decided to do this early on in the semester, taking a step back has been so good for me.
The challenge is over in a few days (Yay! Spring clothes!) and I’ll have a few more reflections but if you ever feel like you aren’t being as productive or need to step back; I really encourage you to take a no shopping challenge. You will be more appreciative of what you have and really be more productive.
