As you guys could probably guess, I have a good amount of clothing. Yet I still find myself standing in my closet complaining that I have nothing to wear. Why do we, as girls do this?! It’s crazy. Colton on the other hand has a wardrobe a third of mine and never seems to have this problem lol. In the past, in order to fill this “I have nothing to wear” void, I would find myself buying clothes I didn’t really need. Instead of buying practical purchases I would wear over and over, I was doing a lot of impulse buying. Ultimately, making my closet situation worse. I noticed in order to avoid this problem, I have really started asking my self a few short questions before every purchase. To keep myself from over spending and from buying unnecessary items.
Questions To Ask Yourself Before Buying Clothes
If I can answer all of these questions, then it is safe to say that it is a reasonable purchase! By answering all of these questions, it has really helped me stop impulse purchasing. I’d be lying to you if I said I followed these questions with every single buy, but I promise I really do try! It’s the best way to keep myself from buying things that I really do not need.
When it came to buying this ruffle sleeve blouse, I was able to answer all of these questions. The blue stripes and the cold shoulder make it perfectly trendy. I literally love the sleeves. The material is super comfortable. While I do have “a lot” or striped pieces, nothing comes close to this one. It’s perfectly priced and I can think of at least 5 different outfits I could wear it with. Funny story, I actually had a full on conversation with the girl at Nordstrom’s on this exact post when buying it. We sat there going back and forth with all of the different outfits I could wear it with lol. It made buying it that much more enjoyable!
