A huge thank you to the Happiness Boutique who sent me this gorgeous statement necklace! They are offering you 10% off your order with the code: pugsandpearls 
Happiness Boutique offers free shipping and they have a customer reward program. Although I'm wearing a statement necklace, they have tons of minimal jewelry to choose from as well! I'm really loving that trend.

I've talked quite a bit about my shopping habits here on the blog, and I wanted to continue to update you on the journey I've been taking this year. While I haven't been able to completely avoid new purchases, I have been able to make huge leaps in the acquiring less arena. 

One of the ways I really feel successful with this is by thoroughly searching for the perfect item and only buying it when I know it's exactly what I want. That was the case with this skirt from the 1901 line from Nordstrom! (I want EVERYTHING in this line!) Skirts make up a huge chunk of my weekly wardrobe, so you better believe I know exactly what I want. I've been through pencil skirt phases, but I really just love the midi silhouette. When I stumbled on this navy midi skirt with that elastic waistband I was smitten.

Usually, I'm a big bargain hunter. I shop Ebay, Poshmark, and thrift for most of my clothes. While my goal is still to find exactly what I'm looking for used, sometimes you just have to buy at full price when it's the perfect thing!

This skirt has already paid for itself! I've worn it dozens of times and the quality is so good that I know I will be wearing this skirt for years. This is something I'm really embracing: Quality clothing that is timeless and worth every penny. Plus it has pockets!

I also want to mention that these sandals were another excellent purchase! I bought them last summer and they are definitely the MVP of my wardrobe. I wear them almost every day in the summer! They are the perfect color and just the right height. Another excellent investment! It makes me feel so satisfied knowing that I spent my money wisely, and that it's not just hanging in the closet.

Okay, one more side note, I accidentally left my silicone wedding band on for this shoot. But, I'm actually glad I did because I want to tell you about it! I got it for the volunteer construction work Blake and I are doing, but it's been so useful! It's great to wear working out or doing yard work. My finger feels naked without my wedding band on it! This silicone band is so light and comfortable. Definitely a good buy! (Go with your regular ring size.)

Leave a comment below if you've noticed that pretty much all the outfits I ever share are navy blue and white! I promise I wear other colors. Do you like to wait until you find the perfect item, or do you find yourself settling for things? Are you a statement necklace person, or do you go for the minimal pieces?
