Getting my money’s worth!!!

Hey Dolls,

This past weekend my family came down to Orlando and I drove up to meet them for a little family time.  I take it when I can get it!!!   We stayed at the beautiful Swan and Dolphin Resort at Disney World.  This was the lovely view from my hotel room.

Anywho…I think I may have told you all about my spending freeze that I started about a year and a half ago. At one point in time I shopped and shopped as if I had a money tree growing in my backyard. I was a true shop-a-holic!!!  I love new clothes and shoes like the next fashionista but I had to take a step back and re-prioritize.

I vowed to shop “Shop My Closet” as much as possible for 2 years and I have been pretty successful.  Adding a statement piece, blazer, or new pair of shoes can really change the look of a previously worn outfit.

Every now and again, I’ll do a little shopping but by putting myself on the spending freeze, I’ve learned how to say no to ALL of the things I WANT and focus on the things I NEED.  It makes getting things I really want more rewarding not to mention nicer on my wallet.

I have been wearing the heck out of this little striped dress! This past weekend was pretty warm so I was able to toss the blazer and show a lil’ arm lol!

 Here are two other ways I’ve rocked this dress.  It is safe to say that I am getting my money’s worth out of this bad boy.  There’s nothing wrong with shopping your closet!  I say get all the wear you can out of a nice piece of clothing!  

Are there any pieces in your wardrobe that you love wearing over and over again?

Talk to you all soon!

    very cute!! I am the SAME WAY I wear the HECK out of everything I own. I don't shop nearly as much as I used to and I am learning to only get things I really need.

    CUTE!! I really like that dress! I'm with you! I WEAR my clothes. As a matter of fact, my last post was about "repeat offenders" from my closet. One piece that I wore to death this past Fall and Winter was my denim button-down shirt. It's not my fault that it goes with everything. lol!

    That dress is so adorable. I love the colors. Last time I went to Disney I saw that resort up close because we rode the boat to Epcot. It looks beautiful. I would love to stay at any of those near the water. Thanks for your comment on my blog. 🙂
