Day 60

I am officially done with my "No Shopping for 60 Days Challenge!"

Two months ago I decided I would challenge myself not to shop for 60 days so that I could break my shopping habit and so that we could save more money towards a new house! I feel so good about doing this challenge and I feel that it helped me break out of my need to always shop. The extra savings is really nice too!

Here is my day 60 Outfit:










Blazer: F21
Graphic Tee: F21
Pants: H&M
Shoes: Boutique by Sam Edelman
Clutch: F21
I want to thank all of you for your support and for cheering me on! It made this challenge so much easier and more fun! If you are trying to save money or break a shopping addiction, this is a great way to do it!

 A few of my friends have asked me if I am going to binge shop now and I said no because I have no desire to. This challenge made me realize that I have plenty in my closet and that the quantity of clothes, shoes and accessories is not as important as how creative you are with what you have. The key is to mix it up and have fun with it!

I will put together a collage for my next post of all the outfits I wore during the last 60 days! Thanks again for reading and being part of my challenge!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Ciao - Denise
