{recap} Wardrobe Update - January

  Tuesday, January 31, 2017 at 7:30 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,,,,, 
The first month of the year is up! I was determined to behave myself this month because I had a slower than usual end of year for freelance. I was tempted by so many sales but was able to resist most of them. I did use some Christmas money from my Grandma to buy a cashmere sweater, bathing suit and jeans. But the rest went into my travel fund! And I also bought some boots at Roundabout because they were such a good deal! So I almost behaved...I promise I'll do better in February!

THE (modified) RULES
  1. Be mindful of purchases 
  2. Quality over quantity

  4. The swimsuit is simply perfection! ♥

    1. I agree! How does it fit, Closet Fashionista? Is it true to size?


    2. Greta - I bought the S/M and it is a little bit small on my chest (they said to size up but the M/L was sold out, haha), but the rest fits perfectly! So go with your usual size unless you have a bigger chest and you should be great!

  5. Lovely photos ♡
