Usually, I like to showcase local boutiques and designers on my blog, but today I wanted to share some looks from my personal closet.

Up until now Forever21 has always been my go to store. I can already hear half of you sighing heavily in disapproval, but let's be honest- almost all of us started there. Forever21 carries all the latest trends at amazing prices, and for a girl with bills and a budget, it’s what has worked for me thus far.

However as I grow older and my style continues to changes, I find myself not stopping there as often. Quality truly is more valuable than quantity, and in all honesty Forever21's quality can be questionable. Whoever said you get what you pay for was not lying. So I took a step back, examined my wardrobe, and decided it was time to de-clutter.

My go to stores now: Zara and Nordstrom Rack because I have a secret...online shopping makes me nervous. I know so many people shop from stores like Asos or Nasty Gal, but every time I venture to one of these sites I can't help but worry-and that worry holds me back from looking any further. What if the clothes don't fit or the quality isn't what it looks like in photos? It might limit my wardrobe options some, but I like to know what I’m buying!

For now I could not be more excited to see how my style evolves and improves in the coming months. Be on the lookout for my next personal style piece.
