10 Things I Started Buying on Repeat Post-30

Allyson Payer

It's to be expected that our shopping habits will change as life goes on. Our careers, relationships, finances and location all have an effect on what we're buying, but I couldn't help but notice that the most significant change in what I wanted to buy occurred when I turned 30. Up until then, my shopping decisions were primarily influenced by what those around me were wearing, or simply for the sake of variety (i.e., buying a maxi dress just because I didn't own one, even though they're not really my thing).

Post-30, I find myself shopping for the same types of things on repeat, because I've realised what I wear the most and what makes me the happiest to wear, so those are the things I want to stock my wardrobe with. Sure, the contents of my closet may be a bit lopsided (no maxi dresses but midi dresses abound!), but at least I wear everything that's in there, which is infinitely more important to me than buying something just for the sake of checking it off a list. Want to know what I find myself impulse buying post-30?

Keep scrolling to see (and shop) what I'm filling my wardrobe with, and rest assured that you're not alone if you're in the same shopping boat.
