March Budget

Every month I post about my clothing budget. My budget per month is $350, which may seem like a lot to some and a little to others, but feels just right for me. You can read my thoughts on my 2016 budget here.

Another month, another budget post! This month, I was mainly looking for warm weather pieces, and that's all I ended up buying. Most of these pieces are on our trip with me right now. I really needed more shorts and tops, because every year I get far too excited about dresses and ignore other warm-weather options, and sometimes a girl just needs to wear shorts instead of a skirt! I'm definitely most excited about that one-shoulder top - it's just so stinking cute in person!! I also needed another pair of white jeans because my only pair was super distressed and didn't work so well for the office. The clutch is mostly for fun, but also because I needed something fancy for some upcoming weddings and most of my clutches aren't particularly dressy. It's really pretty in person but definitely more of a blush than a nude!

Anyway, here's the damage for March:

LOFT One Shoulder Top - originally $54.50, on sale $32.70.
Gap White Jeans - originally $69.95, on sale + used rewards $38.27.
Gap Tie Waist Dress - originally $69.95, on sale + used rewards $23.01.
Madewell Chambray Top - originally $69.50, on sale $59.08.
Old Navy Denim Shorts - originally $24.94, on sale $17.46.
Old Navy Linen Shorts - originally $22.94, on sale $16.06.
BaubleBar Earrings - originally $38, used points $29.
LOFT Clutch - originally $49.50, on sale $29.70.
J. Crew Striped Gingham Tee - originally $39.95, on sale $29.62.

Total Spent: $274.90
Total Saved: $164.33

Under budget, yes!! I definitely needed that after February's shopping binge ;)

As far as next month, I'm mostly just hoping to add a new pair of sandals or two to the closet. I pulled out my sandals from last year for our trip and all of them are getting pretty gross.

Did you budget in March? How did you do?
