October 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.

These posts always sneak up on me, but look, it's time for another monthly budget post! I basically love everything I got this month, and so as to not double-gush, read on for everything I bought this month. 

Target Tie-Front Skirt - $24.99 - seen here. I bought this a few months ago and realized I forgot to include it - it's so fun for fall!
J. Crew Factory Plaid Flannel - originally $69.50, on sale $29.32. Who doesn't need another plaid shirt for fall? Apparently me. I may have a problem.
Old Navy Jeggings - originally $39.99, on sale + used rewards $12.57. You may have seen me share these on Insta Stories, and they're back in stock! They really are a jegging and have an elastic waist instead of a zipper (shhhh don't tell) but they really look like normal jeans. You know, as long as you can't see the waistband. And they're so comfortable.
BaubleBar Earrings - originally $38, used points $34. I wanted some statement earrings that would work for fall, and these definitely fit the bill! Plus they're somehow lighter than most of my other statement earrings - win!!
L.L.Bean Pullover - originally $59.95, on sale and used giftcard $37.96 - seen here. I love a good pullover this time of year, and this one is perfect because it's quilted AND it has a pouch pocket in the front like a hoodie - so cozy! I got an XL because I wanted it slightly oversized, but definitely could have gone with a large instead.
J. Crew Factory Plaid Blanket Scarf - originally $59.50, on sale $30.17 - seen here. What's not to love?
Old Navy Plaid Button-Down - originally $29.99, on sale + used rewards $9.42. I'm wearing this as I write this post, and it's so cozy - surprisingly good quality for the price!!
J. Crew Factory Sweater - originally $54.50, on sale $34.95. I already own this in navy, but I'm all about green this fall so I needed it in another color ;)
Nike Air Max Thea Sneaker - $115, used giftcard $0. I was in desperate need of some comfier shoe options in my closet, and these sneakers definitely fit the bill - I love the black leather! Definitely elevates it from a regular sneaker.
J. Crew Field Jacket - originally $148, on sale $103.60 - seen here. I don't know if I've gushed about this jacket enough yet, but it's basically everything I dreamed it would be. The perfect weight, the perfect size (I got a tall XL which is the perfect size in the shoulders and sleeves), it goes with everything, and somehow looks polished but still casual. I really wish I'd pulled the trigger on it a long time ago!
LOFT Vintage Tee - originally $24.50, on sale $14.70. Not much to say here because, well, it's a tee, but I did successfully confuse the salesperson when I returned the other ten things I got in this order, and the total return didn't match up to the price I'd paid. Sorry, just took a $14 tee out of there ;)
J. Crew Factory Plaid Flannel - originally $69.50, on sale $29.32. It turns out this is exactly the same shirt as the first plaid in this collage, just purchased a week apart. Really, I have a problem.

Total Spent: $361.00
Total Saved: $202.92

Yep, over budget. I knew it was coming. I mean, look at how much I freaking bought!! I've been buying more and returning more as of late, which is a habit I really need to stop because going to Nordstrom multiple times a week to make returns is starting to get annoying. There isn't really anything I need for next month, except for a new winter coat which I'm still on the hunt for! If any tall ladies have a lead on a really long, really warm coat to get me through a Chicago winter please let me know!
