Re-Building my Wardrobe

February 25, 2016

I need to start this off by saying that I am aggressively trying to save my money. I have a full-time job in retail and it is not at all high-paying. HOWEVER, I am learning a lot and there’s a lot to be said for that. Money aside.

But, this is a post about buying things which obviously takes money-making into account. So, let’s talk.

I hate my wardrobe right now. It makes me unhappy. This is so materialistic of me to say, I guess. But, it’s the truth. When you don’t want to put on anything in your closet, how are you starting your day? Not well. Ha. Sad, but true. So, I started slow and began to purge things out of my closet. I love purging! It’s so freeing. This started making me think that I actually do enjoy a minimalistic lifestyle. Not being encumbered by tons of thiiiiings you forget you have or push to the back of your closet is so nice. I want to be surrounded by things that I l o v e.

Time to re-build my wardrobe, you guys. I threw out, donated, and sold clothes and now I’m at square one. Kind of. I mean I’d still like to get rid of things but then I’d be left with like three outfits tops. So, we’re holding off for now.

I made a pinterest board. It’s locked and only I can see it (not much to see yet), so I can scheme my way into a closet that I’m obsessed with. I’m a very visual person, so this helps me see what I’m buying all together and helps me plan outfits accordingly. I am starting with basics (i.e. jeans) and am going to go from there! On the horizon: bras, a pair of boots, some birks, and some basic tees.

It’ll be a process for sure. I am not made of money. I’m trying to avoid instant gratification shopping, which is so so hard. But I hope it’ll help me build a minimalist closet & lifestyle that I’m happy with.

February so far.

January flew by. I always thought that January was the slowest month, but the past two years have changed my mind. The beginning of the year is for new things! Last year it was a new boy and this year it’s new goals. I have to say, this year is off to a way better start. I feel more myself than I have in a while and I feel inspired to try new things again. God is good, y’all.

artopiaWe ventured out to the cool & hip Winter Street Studios at the beginning of the month for a Houston Press event called Artopia. It was a good time (#openbar). I made the dudefriend take an artsy photo of me.  I also got my backdrop in the mail and played with it a bit. Came out well, guys! I love photography. Why have I note been doing it more often??? Oh, yea. Cause’ I have no time! But it’s okay. 🙂 Being busy is a blessing. 2016-02-09 20.36.03

So, really, what I’m saying is life is pretty dope right now. ^^^^ Get it? Get it?



What I Want to Wear

February 8, 2016

I have no money right now. Okay, I have some money that is going towards bills, bills, bills. But not enough money to, you know, splurge on a lululemon bra or that cute graphic tee that I don’t really need. So I’ve been online window shopping. Basically this is what I would be wearing if I could shop the internet right now. The worst part is that most of these items aren’t ridiculously expensive. Stick a knife in me and roast me. K?
