March Budget

March was kind of a struggle for me budget-wise.  I stayed under somehow, but when spring arrivals hit the stores I had a hard time holding myself back.  Pretty pastels and jeweled details were really catching my eye this month, as well as other impractical things that I won't be able to wear for a few months (silly Chicago).

Here's the damage for March:

LOFT Chambray - originally $54.50, on sale $41.69
Sole Society Scarf - $29.95
LOFT Necklace Tee - originally $49.50, on sale $29.70
Old Navy Utility Vest - originally $32.94, on sale and used credits $11.74
JCrew Tee - originally $45, on sale $33.75, used giftcard $0
Gap Boyfriend Shirt - originally $49.95, on sale $34.97, used credits $19.97
LOFT Sweater - originally $44.50, on sale $22.57
LOFT Jeweled Cardigan - originally $59.50, on sale $25.29
LOFT Necklace Tee - originally $49.50, on sale $37.87
The Limited Dot Shorts - originally $54.95, on sale $27.48
Sole Society Heels - originally $69.95, used credits $9.95

American Eagle Coated Jeggings - originally $59.95, on sale $24.99

Total spent: $281.20
Total saved: $259.04

In looking at how much I got this month, it seems like a LOT.  I cleaned out my closet and gave a lot of stuff to my sister, so it seemed like there was some space to fill.  I think for April I'm going to try to buy fewer overall items.  I do have my eye on some pretty spring dresses and block heels though, so who knows!

  1. Those necklace tees from the loft are super pretty. Plus, you don't need to wear jewelry!

  2. You got some great stuff though! and as far as saved vs spent, you did good.

  3. I bought that LOFT necklace tee in white (on sale, too!)

  4. I can see why you didn't hold back, these are all amazing pieces!

  5. Wow!!! I'm impressed!! Love the JCrew tee...

  6. You got some great pieces and stayed below your budget so you did awesome! I'm also on the hunt for versatile dresses that I can wear all summer long. Can't wait to see what you find!
