One of the main questions I get from my close friends and family since starting the blog is, “do you feel like you have to shop way more to have new outfits to shoot?” And honestly, the answer is yes. While my wallet doesn’t love this, I don’t mind — I love shopping! I’ve just had to become more intentional with my choices, to avoid ending up with 5 slightly different versions of the same black top.
So I made a rule for myself — no purchasing items that are similar to pieces currently hanging in my closet. It’s been a fun challenge and has pushed me to pick up unique items that I might usually pass over. I haven’t been able to give up my tendency to lean towards neutrals…but I’m not sure I’m ready to give that up just yet.
