To be real here, I always used to rock plaid and flares growing up. Taking it back to the old school, I’m still on a mission to find a bigger ‘bell’ bottom, and I’m obsessed with these!

I love when I find exactly what I want online (i.e. this denim!) but I still have a love/hate relationship with online shopping. Nine times out of ten I’m more than likely to end up at the store returning it for a different size or something different all together. Being a detailed shopper, if I order something and don’t like it, I’ve learned most retailers won’t let you do an return + exchange if you order online, which means you have to return your purchase, wait to get the credit back, and then reorder what you want. It should be something I accept, but on top of having to wait for it to come in the mail, I just can’t! If you’re like me, and just can’t, here are a few tip’s I generally find helpful when it comes to online shopping…

1.) Be proactive. A lot of the time when I shop online I typically do it to either get ideas of what I’m looking for, or what to look for at the store-think H&M & Forever. It can be so overwhelming, so be proactive, and try not to get too distracted. It can be hard to do, but after a couple of times you’ll become a pro at it.

2.) Must-have’s only! Don’t get me wrong, if I absolutely have to have something-like these shoes, I don’t mind the wait and anticipation. I know, #FirstWorldProblems right?! But make sure you absolutely love it, and it’s not an impulse buy. (An amazing sale, is kind of hard to pass up!!)

3.) Free shipping. I always take into consideration how much I’m paying for shipping, but I pretty much always meet the free shipping cost. Always factor in your shipping cost to make sure it’s really worth it. If you can save a few bucks and they have it in store, scoop it up during your lunch break with a side of happiness.

Now…let’s have a moment of silence for all the clothes we added to our shopping cart but never bought.

Thanks for reading!

Fun Fact: Stores I can’t go to are what I will typically order from first, only makes sense. 🙂
