Janelle In Real Life: Impulse Shopping


Impulse Shopping

I am generally NOT an impulse buyer.
Maybe this is surprising since I blog about fashion and I really do like buying clothes! But I have a monthly budget that I do my very best to stick to and that means planning my purchases as best as I can.

Dress- Piper & Scoot // Shoes- Freebird by Steven (similar HERE) c/o Shopbop

But every once in a while, I make an impulse purchase because I JUST CAN'T HELP MYSELF. I see some new arrivals on one of my favorite shop's website and it's like destiny! It's made for me! Or there's a sale at Nordstrom and all the thing on my wishlist are cheaper! And that is HARD to resist, my friends.
This dress spoke to me on another level when I saw it in person. So perfect & I feel like I can wear it anywhere! Church, weddings, events, or whenever I feel like it. The material is luxurious & fits in at a more formal setting, while the cut is more casual and fun!
Also, my little boys are obsessed with the texture & can't stop petting this dress when I'm wearing it! I even caught one of them in my closet rubbing it against his cheek... and I died from all the cuteness.

My point here is it's good to be a responsible spender MOST of the time. But occasionally it's ok to throw caution to the wind and buy the pretty dress! (Just don't tell my husband, ok?)
