Where do you like to shop? It’s a question I get a lot and one I ask a lot. The answer… well, it changes. All the time actually. Both my style and the way I shop has evolved a ton over the past couple years (I talk about that a lot in tips for smarter shopping post if you haven’t read it!). These days, buying things I really love is extremely important to me (girl’s gotta save, ya feel me?!) and, if I’m going to spend, I like to do so on really classic pieces that will last forever. Don’t get me wrong, you’ll still find Forever 21 and H&M on my list but I’ve definitely added a couple more ‘higher end,’ more adult (?) stores into my favorites list as of late. It means I don’t buy as much but the things I do buy seem to last a lot longer and tend to make me a lot happier in the long run. Anyways, here’s a quick list of some of my favorite places to shop and some of the things I find myself buying most often at each:

American Apparel: basics (these comfy t-shirts are my favorite)
Dillard’s: shoes and dresses
Forever 21: accessories, trendy pieces
Gap: jeans (their boyfriend jeans are the best!)
H&M: accessories, trendy pieces
Lululemon: workout clothes and leggings
Madewell: basics
Nordstrom & Nordstrom Rack: dresses & ‘going out tops’ (Nordstrom), bags & shoes (Nordstrom Rack)
Shopbop: shoes and jeans
Topshop: trendy pieces
Urban Outfitters: jeans (these are my go-tos)
Zara: coats (they have the best winter selection around)
