i’m obviously no stranger to shopping. in fact, i kinda like doing it. i also realized that i tend to shop at certain stores for certain things. i’m going to go ahead and blame my organizationed, type A personality and the fact that i’m apparently afraid of variety.

left to right: 1 / 2 / 3 / 4
1 / 2 / 3
1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5
see what i mean? oh well, it works for me. and it makes shopping a whole lot easier because i can usually depend on these stores to deliver. 
other slightly less dependable and/or too-expensive-to-buy-a-lot-there favorites: urban outfitters, anthropologie, von maur, marshall’s, j crew

    Madewell doesn't hit the too-expensive-to-buy-a-lot-there category? 🙂 I love there stuff as well as J Crew and Target is the BEST for basics.

      they actually have a fabulous sale section (usually with an additional % off) and do a lot of promos on their website. but, regularly priced things, yes. they can be a little expensive!

    I love H&M! They have a ton of stylish, yet not too expensive iteams. That way you can try a trend without investing too much money!

      Old Navy had a really good knock-off version [slightly] recently. Not sure if it's still available, but could be worth checking on!

    I love all your graphics! This post looks so nice and polished! I used to have elements, but it was such an old version that it doesn't work on my current computer. 🙁

    I live in the Target VNeck pocket tees. They are my absolute favorite. I used to pay for the JCrew ones before I figured out how great and inexpensive the Target ones are.
