I may not have told you, but it’s been six months since I’ve been clothes shopping. No JCrack, no Anthro, no sneaky little sale pitstops anywhere. For six months. Can you believe it? It was a personal challenge I gave myself. The goal didn’t start out six months, oh no, that would have been wayyyy too scary. It started with a 30 day challenge. And I did it. Then another 30 days went by, and another. Next thing I knew it was six months! I wanted to minimize materialistic thinking and learn to work with what I’ve got (hello overflowing closet). Oh and save money, ha. My husband loved this little program!!
So I rewarded myself on a recent trip to Atlanta. With a cute little dress! It’s the ikat dress from Anthro. Great price, beautiful silk material, and classic. Let me tell you it is sooooo comfy. I think this style would work well with any body type.
Here I am giving it a whirl inside the dressing room. Waaaa!!!
This exercise really helped me feel more appreciative for what I have and enjoy more non material experiences. Don’t worry, I haven’t gone all granola flower child or anything. I also learned that purchasing one nice thing from time to time is way more fun (and practical) than picking up lots of little things on a regular basis.
