After overspending on my wardrobe last year, I decided to track my spending. At the beginning of each month, I will review and reflect on the things I bought in the previous month. I hope the insights I gain from doing this will help me accomplish three goals: 1) avoid overspending, 2) shop smarter (quality not quantity), and 3) have a functional closet full of pieces I love to wear.

Lately, work lunches have been real sad around here.

It’s usually two pieces of bread with turkey, vegan cheese, and as much spinach that I can stuff. Or, it’s leftovers from the night before. Then, once a week, I’ll have a treat yourself moment and buy an overpriced lunch that I have to rush out in the cold to get and then eat at my desk. It’s not worth it, I tell myself. Then next week, I’ll do it again. The worst part? No matter what my lunch is for the day, hunger always strikes two hours later. What gives?

Instagram must have caught on to me because somehow I landed on the Sakara Life Instagram page.

I’ve never been a fan of wool or cashmere sweaters.

They’ve always been too itchy, too expensive, and too hard to care for. At least, that’s what I thought. It always puzzled me that people willingly wore wool and cashmere in the winter. Were they in on some secret I didn’t know? And why oh why, is cashmere lauded as the most luxe of fabrics when anytime I put it on, it makes me feel like I’m being pricked by a thousand needles? And for these reasons, I’ve avoided wool and cashmere sweaters for the most part. Until now.

Full disclosure: This post is 100% inspired by all the recap posts of 2018 I’m seeing on everyone’s Instagram stories.
