Do you ever look in your closet and think, "I HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR!"? I'm right there with you, girlfriend! Even if we have a closet packed full of clothing, some still with tags, we can't find anything to wear for whatever reason. Lately I've been asking myself a few questions before I click the checkout button and I'm slowly creating a closet full of items I always want to wear. With today's tips, you will be able to save money, not end up with a bunch of stuff you don't ever wear, and most importantly, you'll be saying "I have everything to wear!" #yesplease!
Nothing is worse than spending money on something and never wearing it. Not only is it wasteful, but it's also irritating when you look into your closet and see a tag on something you don't want to wear. You should be so excited about your new item that you want to wear it right away and all of the time! To make sure you're creating a closet full of items you'll love for the long run, it's important to ask yourself 5 questions before buying something (especially if it's expensive!).

If you can say yes to at least 3 of these questions, you know you'll be making a good purchase decision. If the answer to all 5 is "yes," then you've got yourself a real winner (hurry, press the checkout button before someone else gets your dream piece)!
1. CAN I STYLE IT 3 DIFFERENT WAYS?
Make sure you can style the piece you want to buy into 3 different looks with pieces already in your closet.
2. CAN IT BE CASUAL AND DRESSED UP?
If an item can be worn to a dressy event and also dressed down for a casual outfit, it's a major plus.
3. CAN IT BE WORN FOR MORE THAN 1 SEASON?
Like question #2, this is also a major plus! No one will even remember you wearing the dress in the summer when you wear it with tights and cute boots in the winter!
4. IS THIS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT THAN EVERYTHING IN MY CLOSET?
You want to make sure that what you're buying isn't similar to anything you already own, especially if you don't wear it!
5. DO I NEED THIS ITEM MORE THAN THE ONE AT THE TOP OF MY WISHLIST?
If you've been wanting to buy a pair of flat sandals for summer and actually need them, is this item more important? This is definitely one of the hardest questions!
Do you ask any of these questions before adding an item to you wardrobe?! They've really helped me build a better closet that's slowly filling with items I'm in love with and I hope they will do the same for you!
Thank you so much for stopping by today!
