what I spent this month {february budget}

Hey friends, it’s that time again. Time to figure out where I spent my clothes budget. And zip! Another month GONE! I can’t believe how quickly time flies when you’re having fun when you’re super busy. As I said in a previous wishlist post, I really needed some blouses for work. I decided to forego the usual thrifting and actually get what I really need, plus a few extra things that I couldn’t resist.

I really love everything I bought this month and feel like even though I spent a good amount, I got a lot of really great basics that I’ll be getting a lot of wear out of, especially for work.

What I bought in February: LOFT dotty blouse, NYDJ lipstick blouse, NYDJ hearts blouse, LOFT skinny pants, Beija Flor Nicole Jeans, Vintage Coach bag

Here’s what I bought this month:

  1. LOFT Dotted Plaid Utility Blouse, $46 {find it here}
  2. NYDJ Lipstick Love Print 3/4 Sleeve Blouse, on sale at Amazon for $45 {find it here – no longer on sale}
  3. NYDJ Sea of Love  Print 3/4 Sleeve Blouse, on sale at Amazon for $45 {find it here – no longer on sale}
  4. LOFT Essential Skinny Ankle Pants in Julie Fit, $54 {find them here}
  5. Beija Flor Nicole Skinny (dark blue) jeans, used for $28 via eBay {find them here}
  6. Vintage Coach bag, hubby found at estate sale for $35

Not pictured:

  1. Adidas t-shirt, thrifted for $2
  2. Dana Buchman printed blouse, thrifted for $4
  3. Sejour hi-low top, thrifted for $4

Subtotal: $263.00
-$100 blog income
-$30 Amazon gift card {Thanks, Justine!}

TOTAL = $133 … not great but I did buy mostly NEW stuff this month, which is usually not the case for me.

I had $224 left for the quarter…which means I now have $91 left for March. I’m going to try really hard to stay in my budget but I can tell it’s going to be hard because I’m going to visit my mom in California in March and she loves to shop!

Now it’s your turn to spill the beans–what did you buy this month?

  1. When I’m looking for something I really need ASAP, I tend to forgo thrifting, too. I’ll browse, but if I can’t find what I’m looking for right away, like work blouses, then I’ll definitely go seek them out at other reliable stores. The heart blouse is my fav, and what a great find at that estate sale! Glad you put the gift card to good use 🙂
