During summer and spring I love wearing black and white. It's so monochromatic and a blank canvas to do so much with. This particular look is all about dressing up the skinny white jeans.

This peplum bustier top has been a closet fav of mine for many years...and when paired with these zig zag heels it definitely dresses up these white jeans making this look great for a date, lunch date, or a creative meeting.

I wore minimal jewelry with this look because I wanted my other accessories like the silver chain belt and cat eyeglasses to compliment the look. We don't always need jewelry to make a statement when you get creative with your accessories.

My blue leather clutch is so unexpected and I love how it brightens up the look. Now on to my topic "how to keep shopping!"  I know a lot of people talk about how to stop shopping but I believe there's nothing wrong with shopping and I don't say this just because I love shopping myself:)   most times it is not the shopping itself that gets people into financial trouble it's the choices they make while shopping and not having any boundaries that causes the financial problems. Therefore, I want to share a few tips on how you can continue shopping:

1.  Organize your closet... once you organize your closet you truly know what you have and most importantly understand what you need; therefore, when you go shopping you won't buy items that you already have in your closet. This will not only save you money but it will also help you from running out of money so you can continue shopping.

2.  Create a list of exactly whatever you are going to shop for and stick to the list.  Most times we go in the store knowing exactly what we want to purchase but get distracted by other items or sales. These are definitely things that could get you to overspend and if you overspend you can't continue shopping.

3.  Have a clothing spending plan!  Now if you've been following me for some time you know I always speak on "paying yourself first" and that's more important than anything. . ..once you pay yourself first you can budget for things like shopping.  This clothing spending plan will keep you again from overspending and  allow you to continue shopping.

 These tips  are not everything that that you can do so challenge yourself to create more but they can be used as a guideline to continue shopping and continue your journey to a financial free life.

 Have a wonderful and blessed week and as always thank you so much for reading! Your kind comments are always appreciated.
