Why 1 Fashion Blogger Is Cutting Back on Buying Clothes in 2017
All too often, a quick scroll through Instagram will leave us with the same nagging thought: we need to go shopping and we need to go now. Typically, it's inspired by something a blogger has on, from ruffled shirts to statement shoes to the newest It bag. But for 2017, Natalie Suarez, aka Natalie Off Duty, is planning on paring down rather than purchasing, and her reason might inspire you to do the same.
While the star of STATE Optical Co.'s New Originals campaign says a pair of glasses are worth the buy — "They're starting to trend as a look rather than an accessory" — her big goal is to minimize what she's got in her wardrobe.
"I want to invest in more statement pieces that I'm going to keep forever," she told POPSUGAR Fashion. "Be more eco-friendly and conscious about what I'm wearing. Rewearing things."
As for how she'll clean out all that excess stuff?
"Donating clothes that I don't wear, but [doing it] now while they're still in style. Just constantly being on top of what I have and being more minimal with everything. I like that. I like not having too many things."
