$100 Wardrobe


So, as promised, I am compelled to deliver my juicy little summer wardrobe challenge. Honestly guys, I'm not a big spender in the clothes department. The other night Dusty and I were having a conversation about how scared I would be if he decided to become an alligator hunter. Because this is a conversation every couple should have. Or perhaps it has something to do with our recent addiction to Swamp People. Who knows. Anyway, I asked him how he would feel if he sent me into the world's finest mall with his credit card and said, "have at it." And he responded with the fact that he would feel perfectly safe sending me right off with his plastic. This may speak to the fact that I am a terrible analogy-maker. But that is not the point. The point is that I am not a spender.

BUT, when the glorious days of summer roll around, I tend to get the itch. The itch to spice up my closet with new things. And then, I binge shop. It usually happens right before a vacation or special occasion. I have to have that something new and boy do I deserve it. And then once I dip my toe in, I go on a spending spree and then I feel guilty. And that is why I am placing a $100 limit on myself for reworking my wardrobe with some new pieces and making it feel a bit more sparkly for the summer months. Dare I say this shall be quite fun. That or I will hate this idea one month in. But I'm sticking to it for at least three monts. Ninety days. Maybe more if I can hold out.

Here goes it!

Love, Ramsey


P.S. This shirt was one of my first purchases. Old Navy: 2 buckaroos...I can swing it!
