I have a confession everything you see in this ensemble was legit snagged out of my closet. For those who may think I’m rolling in dough, truth is I’m not. I stick to a fluctuating budget as an entrepreneur.  I’ve learned to master preserving and switching it up! 

 

As a kid begging my mother to pick my own outfit was more like never. Once I got my first job all I wanted to do was to shop for my own back to school attire. I literally saved every check that summer from working at the pool. For the record, I wasn't a lifeguard. I was a checker. Meaning I had to price and check the coolers, bags, and items of the patrons. Sounds so glamours right? Nope

 

The moment I got to hit up my favorite stores it felt like my independence started. Life was so “easy” back then. Sigh. 

 

Over the years I’ve understood it's all about investing in classic pieces that are versatile from season to season. I’m one of those bloggers who like to watch every coin oppose to splurging at the drop of the dime. 

 

Especially now as an entrepreneur, I have to be super cautious. Going to H&M and giving them all I have isn’t an option while running a business and adulting. Places like Goodwill are a pure blessing especially after stumbling across gems with little to no effort. 

 

Secretly that’s how I love to shop! When I have absolutely no reason too. This tactic actually keeps me from spending excess money. I’m able to observe and purchase minimal items here and there, which keeps me from shopping under pressure. I use to waste a lot of money doing that. 

 

However, this outfit you would catch me sporting to a concert or just a night out feeling edgy. Can you tell got a little inspired from the London urban fashion scene?
