Show & Tell: Shopping

1. Tell us your favorite stores to shop at.
This is easy. I love to shop. And I almost always shop at the same places. Woolworths, Country Road, Forever New, Zara, Urban or online at Asos.

2. What are you “signature pieces” to wear.. your go-to outfits?
I’m definitely a jeans and tee type of girl. I also go through clothing phases so I wear items for a while or season and then move on to the next. At the moment I am loving my Zara jeans and a tee or cutoff linen shorts and a tee. Urban have just brought in some great bright vests too!

3. Show us your style through pictures {of you or pinterest finds}.

5. If you had to spend money on clothes or home items, which would you choose?
Hmmm, this is a tough one! And probably a complete 50/50 for me. I love shopping for clothes but I also love decorating our home. And considering we are busy building our new house, home items may just win this race!

6. Show us your favorite accessories.

7. Tell us in one sentence your philosophy behind shopping. {What makes you buy an item}
Quality over quantity.
I used to be one of those must-have-everything shoppers. So I would be cheap items but lots of them – every style, every color and the quality would be terrible so the items wouldn’t last long. I now buy quite carefully. I shop for more expensive, classic items that I can pair with many other items to create many outfits and the quality is a lot better, so the items last a lot longer. 

Tell me what you love and loathe about shopping?
