December Budget

Every month I post about my clothing budget. My budget per month is $300, which to some may seem like a lot and to others a little, but feels just right for me. You can read my thoughts on my 2014 budget here

Yay for it almost being 2016! Are you up to anything fun tonight? We're having a few people over and I'm using the opportunity to bust out some new sequins. I'm back with another budget post, and weirdly, another way under budget post. I weirdly only bought one thing for myself over the Black Friday weeklong sales (these jeans, and they didn't actually arrive until the week of Christmas!) and the weather foiled my plans for a post Christmas shopping spree, leaving me under my $300/month limit again. I'll be back next week with my thoughts on the 2015 budget as a whole, but in the meantime, here's the damage for December:

J.Crew Factory Artist Tee - originally $29.50, on sale $13.33. I took advantage of big sales and free shipping on any order to snag another of my favorite tees (seen here and here). I used to buy mediums, but they tend to shrink so now I always go for the large.
Maia Sequined Shift Dress - $118. I wasn't going to buy a NYE dress. I have a bunch of sequined dresses (even though they might be mostly white at this point - thanks getting married!) and had my eye on a couple from Rent the Runway. But you know, this one is so gorgeous. And I basically only want to wear shift dresses when I dress up now. Somehow, someway it found its way into my closet.
Gap Distressed Denim - originally $79.95, on sale $47.97. I've been searching for distressed skinny jeans for over a year now, and finally found a winner in this pair. A lot of them were either too distressed, or the holes didn't line up right on my knees, or they were ankle length. These ones are perfectly soft and comfortable, they come in a tall, and they have just the right amount of distressing.
Madewell Necklace - originally $45, on sale $30.37. This was definitely an impulse buy. It was on sale, the shipping was free, and I just couldn't resist.

Total Spent: $209.67
Total Saved: $62.78

I don't think I'll be shopping for anything in particular next month, just looking for some great deals.

Did you have a budget for December? How did you do?
