It’s that time of the month again…time to come clean about what I’ve spent on clothes, shoes, etc 🙂 For the first time this year, I feel confident that I stayed around my budget and didn’t completely blow it. Let’s see how I did this month:
1. vintage Coach crossbody purse, Goodwill $1.99
2. Old Navy military-inspired jacket, Goodwill $6
3. BCBG flowy tee, Goodwill $3.39
4. Peter Pilloto for Target tank in red iris print, Target clearance $12.48
I also made my first purchase with ThredUp and I can say that I am quite pleased. Although I did shop with a 40% off your entire order coupon, which made the prices much more digestible. Here’s what I got from ThredUp:
The forecast for today promised to be rainy (and maybe even freezing rain or snow) so I thought it was a perfect opportunity to wear my new rain boots to work. Too bad it only rained a tiny bit, and by the time I left the office, it had already stopped. So even though I didn’t get a chance to test the boots’ waterproof properties in action, I had fun wearing my new polka dot rain boots!
By the way, the story about rain boots is this: I had a pair from wal-mart that I bought when I was in college (many moons ago). They sat in my closet, unworn, for many years. Mostly they were uncomfortbale but also because a chance hadn’t arose where I needed to wear them, so off to the donation pile they went. Fast forward to this winter, where it’s been colder, snowier, and wetter than I can remember, and I wished I hadn’t donated my old boots.
I decided I wanted a nice pair of rain boots, something affordable yet still made in the USA. I’m glad I found the brand Sloggers (purchased from Amazon) – they come in a variety of colors and are American made. I’ve only worn them once (sized up a size per the reviews and they’re a tiny bit loose but better than tight and uncomfortable like the old ones) but they seem very comfortable.
Anyway, that’s it about the rain boots – hope you all had a great tuesday:)
