Workwear: Navy blue and red

With fall right around the corner, I feel the need to create very classic outfits. Navy blue and red are great at fulfilling that need. The brown leather accessories really compliment that fall feeling. I can’t wear these shoes enough. I was so happy to find them at Goodwill. I purchased these and a navy blazer for a total of $5.

Lesson learned: Classic versus trendy

I can’t believe I have been through an entire month without buying any clothes. I have had no impulse buys, and I haven’t walked into a Forever 21 since before Christmas. I am pretty excited. I feel liberated. I am not thinking about the next trendy piece I need to add to my wardrobe, and I have been able to be more creative in shopping my own closet. I have been forced to find new outfits, and I am surprised at the new creations I have come up with. I am starting to think and day dream of what my first purchase will be after my three-month spending freeze is up. I am of course thinking of something practical and classic that will last a long time. I could really use a new pair of black pumps that can be worn to both work and out with my friends. Does anyone have any recommendations? Are there a pair of black pumps you can’t live without?
