August Budget

Holy crap, August is over. Based on what I bought this month (besides this little white dress that I'm completely obsessed with) it looks like I'm fully in fall mode now, although I'll probably still be in shorts and little dresses until summer is officially over. I got a little overly excited this month and bought a lot of stuff (and went a tinge over budget ;), but you know, fall clothes are the best and I just couldn't resist. Or really I think I just forgot that I had gotten so much because it has to sit in my closet and wait for the temperatures cool down enough.

So anyway, here's the damage for August - stripes and plaid and sweaters oh my!

J.Crew Factory Popover Blouse - originally $75, on sale $35.60. I'm so excited to wear this for work, it has the perfect drape.
Banana Republic Striped Flutter Sleeve Blouse - originally $74, on sale $51.80, used coupon $1.80. Yep, $1.80. I freaking love this blouse and have already worn it an embarrassing number of times, including here.
endless rose Pom Pom Dress - originally $71.00, on sale $49.70. Love love love love love this. As seen yesterday.
Gap Batwing Sweater - originally $69.95, on sale $41.98. So soft I maybe have already taken a nap in it.
J.Crew Factory Striped Shirttail Sweatshirt - originally $65, on sale $44.50. I ordered this back in JULY and it just came this week! It is gorgeous and perfect and I love it, and there are still a couple of sizes left so scoop it up while you still can!
Old Navy Classic Plaid Shirt - originally $24.94, on sale $14.96. Yes I did need more plaid. Yes I did.
Old Navy Long Cardigan - originally $29.94, on sale $17.96. Yes, I bought two oatmeal cardigans this month. No, I don't have any regrets.
J.Crew Factory Puffer Vest - originally $98, on sale $46.80. All of my vests are dark colors so I'm excited to have a light colored puffer in my collection.
Gap Tank Dress - originally $59.95, on sale $35.97. Loooove this for transitioning to fall (already wore here).

Total spent: $339.27
Total saved: $258.45

A tinge over budget - whoops! I know that next month is going to be a big spending month too, I'm looking for comfy dress shoes and new dress pants to wear for a weeklong work event in October, and I still have an outstanding #nsale purchase that's on backorder.

Did you budget in August? What did you get?
