Today I want to take a moment to chat about investment pieces. As someone who is always pursuing more minimalism (especially in my wardrobe), I seek to buy less and buy well. I don’t know about you, but there are things in my wardrobe that I always save on and other things that I save up for to invest in—those things that really stand the test of time.
Aside from simple tanks and tees, one item I tend to like to go cheap on is sunglasses. Not only am I afraid to lose or break a pair of nice ones, I also change my mind all the time about the style I want to wear. I currently have three pairs in rotation—aviators, surfer shades and a pair of rounded tortoise shades. I suppose one day I may invest in a pair of Ray Ban aviators because they are truly timeless and I’ve always loved that style. But it’s not really high on my priority list.
Now, spending…what is worth saving up for and spending money on? The perfect pair of jeans? For sure. A high-quality coat to get you through winter after winter? Yep. A bag you will use every single day for the next several years? Definitely.
Okay, now I want to hear from you—what do you save on? What do you spend on? Or do you always stick with the budget-friendly options?
