and just like that, a new year! slowly transitioning out of my vacation haze and back into reality. it was so nice to unplug for a bit, definitely going to be doing more of that in 2019. i know we all just got done with a crazy season of gifting but there are so damn good post-holiday sales going on. makes me wonder if we shouldn’t push gift buying to january?! i usually buy a couple of things a year at the net-a-porter sale. they have deep discounts, great customer service and lots of brands i love. i don’t shop seasonally, i.e. if i see a great jacket in june i’ll buy it or a summer dress in january, etc. i believe in snatching things you love up when you find them so you don’t end up making an impulse buy down the line when you need something on the fly. i also do well buying basics on sale, they can get overlooked but denim usually gets really discounted as well as basics like sweaters and tees. for example, brands like james perse that have great but expensive basics that you can find at 50% off, like this t-shirt. other favorites include this gingham wrap skirt, this victoria beckham reversible sweater and this classic trench that is truly a jacket for life. oh and this sweet little bag in a wear with everything shade of purple. i won’t be buy any of these things as i put myself on a post-holiday budget but it’s fun to look! – joanie
and how fun is this staud dress on sale for $118?! also, this tropical vacation dream dress is divine.
