How many times have you purchased an item just because its on sale that you don’t need? I actually almost did the same thing while writing this blog post… Can you guess what I almost purchased? Sales are so dangerous! I definitely love to take advantage of sale but smart shopping is key. Here are a few tips for shopping sale and avoid impulse buying:
Before you start shopping any sale, check your closet. What do you really need? When I’m shopping sale in store, I always try on and take photos. If I can’t stop thinking about piece then to go back and if it is still available, it was meant to be!
When I am shopping online, I shop brands I know and I have a mission to only browse things I need. Stay focused! I hold the item in the cart and ask myself the same questions again.. do I need it?
And always check the return policy! There is nothing worse than buying online and it doesn’t work.
Heres my favorites from the Shopbop sale–this is what Im ordering and why.
I can’t get enough of white button down shirts, so I always buy any with unique details. The cat in this Lilii Cat Button Down blouse is so cute, and polka dots are classic!
Although polka dots are timeless, they are clearly trending right now! I am also obsessed with one piece swimsuits, so this Araks Elmar One Piece suit is a must-have. The cutout is fun and adds a little edge, plus this color blue is totally on trend.
Another polka dot piece I love from the sale is this Smythe Lounge Blazer. Blush pink and navy are two great neutrals for the summer, they’re so easy to wear! My favorite way to style this is with a graphic tee shirt, shorts, and sneakers because I love to mix dressy and casual.
I am constantly being asked about my favorite shoes–sneakers have been an absolute must have recently! I’m always running around doing errands and with kids so I love a fashionable comfy shoe. I love that these Vezi Trainer Sneakers are multicolor so they can be worn with everything! Try them with the blazer look I mentioned.
You know I also have an obsession with white booties… You don’t need to spend a fortune on white boots before they get dirty, so these Diane von Furstenberg Dakota Boots are an amazing pair on sale! Just make sure you clean and take care of them because trust me you will be wearing them with everything.
The last pieces in my shopping cart are summer dresses! Summer is so busy, who has time to think of an outfit? This St Tropez Ruffle Mini Dress reminds me of being on vacation–style it with a floppy hat and sandals.
A colored mini dress is perfect for a rooftop cocktail, a summer wedding, or any event in the heat. This Gala Mini Dress is a stunning color and I love anything with fun sleeves 🙂
Happy shopping! 🙂
