My shopping habits have greatly changed in the last few years.  Instead of buying impulsively or to follow trends, I dress for my body shape and opt for quality over quantity.  This doesn't mean that I always play it safe, but essentially, my goal is always to get the most out of each purchase.  The way my dad feels at a buffet, is the same way that I feel about my clothing; I have to get the most for my money.  This often means getting creative and thinking of styling options that are slightly outside of the box.  You might recognize this Top Shop number from this post and see that this time I layered it over top of another blouse.  Paired it with some bright pumps that bring out some colour in the plaid stripes and you really have a completely different look.  Man, I just love when that happens!

  2. Such a cute outfit! Layering is a great way to get the most out of your closet and to push creative boundaries. Love the analogy between the buffet and your shopping habits, made me giggle!
