Buying basics on a budget.

I know I usually preach buying "quality over quantity" and as much as I believe in this, I think there are things that are just not worth spending a fortune on.


I love investing in a timeless good quality coat or a beautiful pair of black boots. I also think handbags are amazing investments if you choose wisely. But when it comes to loungewear or very basic clothes, I like to go for bargains. I mean you have to save some money somewhere in order to splurge on the key pieces, right? A shop where I always go back to for exactly those pieces is Romwe. I bet you all heard of them before, they are known for very low priced fast fashion. As I said, usually not the place where I would invest in. But I felt like I needed a few hoodies in my life and as I only wear them at home or on the way to the gym I was not too keen on spending a fortune on them. So here I show you what I got. Of course, I went for my usual colour palette: grey, black and blush. I hope you are not bored of it by now?!





Where do you like to shop your basics? And what do you love to invest in?

  2. I love my basics. I usually have a bit of both, some cheaper pieces and more pricier ones. Though at times I find the ones that cost slightly more wear out more than the el cheapo's.

  8. I buy a lot of my t-shirts at Target and Old Navy. That being said, I actually invest is workout clothes. They usually get tons of wear and the more affordable brans usually fall apart really quickly!

  9. Investing in timeless pieces is defintely worth is. I think like a proper winter jacket, brown and black winter boots are worth investing as they can last for many years. Basics must have such as black jeans, denim jacket and even like a white t-shirt/top. H&M is good for basics for sure at affordable prices too!
