September Clothing Budget
What? Time for another budget round up?? It's true. September is almost over, so here's the wrap up on my spending.
I feel pleased with what I got this month and actually managed to cross a couple items off my current closet wish list. I feel like t-shirts and cardigans are constantly on my list. Most brands only seem to last for a season or so. Do you have suggestions for these wardrobe staples that really last for awhile?
Navy Striped Perfect Henley: Old Navy (exact) - free after reward certificate
Jason Wu tie-neck blouse and Merona sandals via Goodwill - $9.77 - My best thrifting trip this month! Worn here.
Sonoma Slubbed Tee: Kohl's (same shirt, different colors) - $3.07 - This is a really cute tee and I am considering buying them in other colors.
Merona Doubleweave Denim Pencil Skirt via Goodwill (similar) - $4.60 - Another great thrifted find! This is dressier than a regular denim skirt but still really comfortable and versatile. I always think of Heidi when I see these skirts. :)
Mossimo Ankle Pants: Target (petite version) - $8.86 - After doing my recent closet inventory, I realized I only have 8 pairs of pants. I wear pants often, so when I saw these for under $10, I decided to give them a try. I have the same pair in a tweed print that I wear all the time, so I'm hoping these fit.
Merona Tanks in Black and Navy (exact) - $4.86 - I wear these under everything!
Tights from Meijer - I couldn't pass these up. 6 pairs for $4.80! I am stocked up for fall and winter now!
Black Cardigan - Sears - $6.39
Sonoma Straight Leg Pants in Burgundy - Kohl's - $6.53
Black Sonoma Ruffled Jacket - Goodwill - $5.65
I underspent last month by a few dollars, so the overage this month balances out pretty well. I also got a few things that I needed (pants, black cardigan, black jacket, tanks) and I managed to stay away from jewelry and scarves this month.
My hunt for affordable black skinnies continues (any suggestions??). I'm also going to keep an eye out for a a print dress, a cute and comfy "dressy" sweatshirt, and a 3/4 sleeve navy striped tee. As it gets cooler, cardigans, sweaters, and a cute winter jacket are also on my list and I'll be keeping an eye out for replacement riding boots, just in case mine give out this season.. I still have an eShakti gift card to spend and a Curated by Kelly gift card, too.
I can't wait to see what everyone else got this month!
