February 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 2017 budget here.

I'm basically always shocked when it comes time to write these posts. February is over, what?!

This month I was clearly excited about the trip we took to Charleston over the weekend, and my shopping was in full spring break mode. Despite repeatedly telling myself that I didn't need anything for the trip. The struggle is real.

That being said, I freaking love both of the dresses I got. They are so gorgeous in person. The yellow is so fun and I anticipate getting so much wear out of it this spring and summer. But I'm really psyched about this blue floral dress. It's not often I find a dress that feels like it was made for my body type, so when I find one I have to scoop it up. I wasn't sure where I would wear this to when I pulled it out of the box, but somehow in that week and a half I've gotten a baby shower invite, started planning a baby sprinkle, and have a potential spring wedding on the horizon. So yeah, I'm keeping it ;)

Here's everything I bought this month:

J.Crew Velvet Hair Bow (this is sold out, but here's a similar and less obnoxious version) - $16.50. I love how this dresses up a simple pony tail, but it isn't too crazy to not wear to work. Worn here.
J.Crew Polartec Pullover - originally $118, on sale $37.99. I love this little fleece - it is so freaking warm!! Just a note that it is a little cropped, so if you have a longer torso it probably won't work for you. Worn here.
Target Sandals - $12.99. These are super comfy and so inexpensive - considering getting them in brown too. Definitely going to be a go-to once it warms up here in Chicago.
Old Navy Graphic Tee - originally $14.99, on sale $11.24, used giftcard $0. This is super similar to a couple of graphic tees I loved a few years ago, and I just had to have another.
BaubleBar Earrings - $38. I've wanted a pair of white statement earrings since last spring, so I was psyched to come across this pair. They're super lightweight and not too big.
Maggie London Gingham Dress - $128. Love love love love love. Love. I want to wear this every day of my life.

Total Spent: $401.48
Total Saved: $80.01

Whoops. $50 over. Not mad about it, because I love everything.

Next month someone better hold me back from all of the spring arrivals though.
