As a professional shopper, aka fashion blogger, I am no longer a “grazer” at the mall. What I mean by that is that I try to shop with intention. Either I have a vision of an outfit I want to put together, or I am on the hunt for a specific style top to match with a particular style of bottoms that I already own. I failed epically when I came across this patterned jacket last week at H&M…oops!
Without a plan in sight, I had no idea how I would style this jacket at the time of purchase. Luckily, I did know that it was too good to pass up, or it would have haunted me in my outfit dreams! Anyway, when you live in a moderate climate like San Francisco, you can never own enough lightweight jackets. I rarely leave the house without something to wrap up in once the sun goes down. Being a rather low key weekend, I paired this jacket with flare jeans. Although I debated over winter white, or traditional blue, I stuck with a classic hue hoping to accentuate the jacket’s tribal print. To pull out the golden tones I accessorized with a mustard purse and gold jewelry.
Make it a goal to shop with intention in 2016. You’ll quickly find yourself spending less money on more pieces you truly love and/or need.
