Things I wish I could buy but can’t (for now) ;)

I am keeping it real you guys! With students loans and rent, I am trying to set a great example to my younger siblings by keeping my spending down to a minimum (it hasn’t been easy lol). Being responsible stinks sometimes but I can only hope practicing habits like this will prepare me in the near future for when I have a home of my own. In the meantime, I wanted to show you some of my favorite pieces that I wish I could afford but can’t at the moment lol.Let me know what pieces you like most by leaving me a comment below! And happy shopping ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Love this idea!! So much that I want, I can’t afford! So totally relatable!

    I totally understand what you are going through. The struggle is real. I always put all my “wants” in the cart and just close out. I love all your picks.
