So Worth It!
As the weather gets warmer, I start taking inventory of last year's spring and summer items. What do I keep? What do I donate? I donate things that don't look as fresh as they should. I keep the items that I have only worn a few times. But then there are the pieces that I say "that thing doesn't owe me a dime!" It is my favorite phrase.
One thing I learned over the years is that sometimes it is worth spending a "little more" for those "basics." I have some LAMADE tees that look great even after a couple of years. Or my absolute favorite joggers from Bella Dahl. I have a pair from two years ago - they only get softer and better with age. Definitely worth the money.
So here's my advice? Splurge on those "key' basics. They won't owe you a dime!
