New Year, New Wardrobe?

New Year, New Wardrobe?

Hello, lovelies! Congratulations on surviving the first week of January! If it was anything like my week then you will be feeling tired, stressed and financially drained… I’m back at uni now for my exams and I’m already missing home, especially home cooked meals! One of my goals for 2018 is to spend less money on crap I don’t need. I’m a really bad impulse buyer – if I see something I really like then I will buy it and suffer the consequences later (hello microwave ready meals!). So instead of buying ANOTHER coat, scarf, a pair of shoes, bag, or whole new wardrobe etc., I thought I’d share them with you instead and try to resist the temptation of buying them myself!




p.s. What’s your favourite piece?

    I literally do this haha, I always create big baskets of clothes that I can’t afford. Love some of the bits you’ve included here! Think my favourite thing has got to be the checkered skirt from New Look, would go so nice with a pair of tights and a high neck top x

      I know, I’m so bad at that! And then if I’ve been thinking about one of the items for a long time I tell myself I have to buy it before it goes out of stock! haha x

    I definitely find it helps to curb my shopping urges to share stuff like this instead. There are too many clothes in this world, they gotta stop calling out to me!

      I feel ya pain, and also why do shops try and entice you with emails like ‘oh we’ve seen you’ve been looking at this item, so why don’t you buy it’! There is temptation everywhere haha x

    Haha this made me giggle! Often sharing things I want to buy with other people just makes it worse for me as they persuade me to get it… I absolutely LOVE that check skirt from New Look it’s gorgeous! (And you should buy it ;-)) And I totally want those pink boots from ASOS now, dammit Chessie!

    Gorgeous wish list! I was eyeing up that green/black/white new look top the other day too! I’m the same with spending, I really need to learn to stop impulse buying, although sometimes it’s good such as the other week, I’d had items saved in my wish list for months and saved up money for and I finally went to buy some last week and they had all sold out and been on sale, I was gutted haha! So maybe sometimes its ok to buy then and there 😉


    • everythingchessie January 12, 2018 / 9:02 pm

      Oh no, I hate it when that happens! I really wanted to get that new look top but they don’t have it in my size anymore! Maybe they knew I was on a spending freeze…! I don’t need any more temptations, I’ve already been dreaming about the PLT coat haha xx

    The pink shoes look amazing! I wish I could buy some new clothes, my wardrobe definitely needs refreshing. You found some great pieces!
