You guys, I don't know what happened. Usually September is a really intense shopping month for me (see: 2015, 2014) because I want all of the boots and scarves and sweaters and whatnot, but this year I only ended up keeping four things. Part of the problem is I bought these booties back in July during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and they're still on backorder, so they've been holding a part of my budget dollars. The other part is I had a couple of serious misses this month that had to be returned. I was so excited about this Gap & Pendleton plaid shirtdress but it was amazingly terrible on me - I even tried it in tall and regular and a couple of different sizes but they were all bad. I also ordered a million pairs of shoes that ended up being uncomfortable - I think I must have amazingly picky feet. I did manage to keep a couple of things though. Here's the damage for September:
Charles Henry Off the Shoulder Dress - $88. I bought this to wear to our wedding on Friday, and then when it came it was so cute that I immediately put it on and wore it to an event last week. It turns out it's really easy to dress down - I'll share tomorrow!
Rockport Flats - $109.95. I was looking for some new ballet flats, and wore these out of the house before I realized they actually aren't the most comfortable. So now I guess I'm keeping them. I'm hoping they'll break in well, they're already feeling a little better.
Total Spent: $212.94
Total Saved: $5. Lol.
For next month I'm going to try not to buy anything, because of the aforementioned booties and the pile of plaid shirts I bought over the weekend that haven't arrived yet. Whoops.
Did you budget this month? How did you do?
