Last shopping spree of the year

Monday, February 6

I have decided to go another year without shopping, but this time I don't even have a wishlist to guide me, it will be a year completely without shopping. I really want to travel this year and I will restrict even more my shopping habits so that I can do at leats 2 trips this year. I will only spend my money on day to day basis and on a gym membership, the rest goes to savings. 

To keep me going for the rest of the year I decided to get a few new pieces to add to my capsule and also a few pieces to replace some old ones that are in really bad shape! I bought these last few pieces in December and also on the Sales, I got really nice deals on sale this year, very happy with what I got. All the pieces are from Zara as usual, I got a few pieces for the cold months and a few for the hot months, the pants and shoes I will wear all year long.

What to get from the Sales

Wednesday, January 25

Although I don't shop that much, I do love to use the sales as an ally instead of a compulsion to shop. There are a few things that I like to buy from the sales that are a great investment for your wardrobe. I only go sales shopping when I feel like I need something new or when I feel like a piece is getting too old and needs to be replaced. Here are the items that I recommend getting on Sale:

+ Underwear // bras, undies, pajamas, socks. All those things can be a bit pricey when not on sale and when you enjoy getting good quality items. I always find great deals on underwear in the sale season.

+ Jeans // jeans, pants, skirts or shorts. Sometimes they can be a bit overpriced, especially good quality ones, so I always get a pair on sale when I feel like I need a new one.

+ Basics // basic pieces are always a need in your closet, and since they are probably the most worn items in your wardrobe they need to be upgraded once in a while, the best time to get them? the sales of course!

ASOS T-Shirt in Boxy FitV - NECK T-SHIRT-T-SHIRTS-TRF | ZARA United StatesASOS TALL The New Forever T-Shirt With Short Sleeves and Dip Back

+ Trend pieces // I have spending tons of money on those awesome trend pieces that I love, and since they are trends (which come and go) I like to wait for the sales to get them for a lower price.
