Investment Buy

I often come to this question at the close of a year and reflect on trends to ditch, and trends to try. But above all, I consider smart investment buys that are always worth it. This week, I noticed that after writing this article, it helped me purge my closet. I began to think A. Have I worn this at all in a year, yes or no? and B. bucket hats and over the shoulder are done. Good to know! I started to see the rows of clothing and shoes in two categories, what to store, and what to donate. When was the last time you purged your closet? Keep reading for trends to ditch and what trends to invest in! Let me know what you think! Good bye Dad sneakers!


DAD SNEAKERS aka CHUNKY SNEAKERS (I never liked them to begin with)


OFF THE SHOULDER has been overdone


OUT: leopard slip skirts

BOILER SUITS – It takes a few number of girls who can pull these suits off.

BIKER SHORTS. Sorry girls, I was never a huge fan of these.



FRINGE BABY! Love the movement and texture it adds to an outfit!





FULL ON NEUTRAL. Neutrality is always in. Soft wearable neutrals in complimenting shades were never really trendy, just classic.

If you’re still curious, these are the best sellers from the rewardstyle analytics:

As always, my shop page is open 24/7 and 2019 gift guides are live. Let me know what you think!

My life is basically in the fast lane all the time. There’s no time to second guess, overthink, or overbuy (hello messy closet, I see you). With a house full of 6 (soon to be 7), we are decluttering to the tune of 5 bags a week to donations. While I feel like that’s not enough, progress is everything. It has also got me thinking about items in my closet that I wear OVER and OVER again. Like these Chloe Susanna Booties I scored on eBay.
I don’t like paying full price, so I utilize sites like eBay, Poshmark, and Rebag. They are great places to check first before you hand over the Amex for the $1300 boots. Trust me on this, do your research. I don’t usually have a ton of time, in between cutting hot dogs, arriving late to swim lessons, remembering to take my prenatal vitamin (or completely forgetting to take my prenatal vitamin)—you get the point. There really aren’t enough hours in the day.
However, I do manage to remember certain keywords to plug in like “Hermes Oran sandal size 40” or “Chloe Susanna Boot” or last week I searched, “New Nike Running shoe girls size 1″ for my daughter. I’ll usually skim the options, and if I don’t see anything, I’ll check again the next day. Consistency usually pays off with me saving money and a package at the door a couple days later. Yay for fast shipping via eBay! (not sponsored;)
So, with all of that said, here are 5 investment buys every girl should own, but always remember you don’t necessarily have to pay full price!
