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 2018 budget here.

Oh hey there! I'm writing this waaaaaay in advance so it's definitely possible I've bought more in February, but I thought I'd share what I've purchased so far! My favorite is definitely that sweatshirt - so cute and high end looking in person! I'm also loving the leopard espadrilles. They were on my wishlist all last year and seeing that they were running out of sizes made me finally pull the trigger. They started off really tight, but in wearing them around the house they have stretched out a little so I'm pretty sure I'm going to keep them - may do a few more walks to make sure!

Here's what I purchased in February:

J.Crew Factory Earrings - originally $24.50, on sale $14.50. I bought the non-Factory version of these two years and pink and wore the heck out of them (like here and here), they provide the look of a statement earring but are impossibly light and are really easy to pack for trips. So obviously I had to snag another pair when I saw they were back at such a great price!
J.Crew Factory "Le Weekend" Sweatshirt - originally $69.50, on sale $39.50, used rewards $34.50. It's hard to tell trying this on with a pregnant belly, but it fits really well now so I'm hoping it'll look good postpartum too! Very cute and luxe looking in person, perfect (le) weekend wear ;)
Target Necklace - $16.99. I realized I forgot to add this to my January budget post, so here it is now. This was one of those impulse buys but I've worn it a ton already so it was definitely worth it! It's the right length on me (not always the case with long necklaces) and seemingly goes with everything. It looks to be going in and out of stock, but there is also a silver version.
J.Crew Necklace - originally $39.50, on sale $27.65. I've loved big tortoiseshell jewelry for a few years now but never pulled the trigger on anything, but this was one of those "OMG I MUST ORDER THIS IMMEDIATELY" pieces. It is so gorgeous in person and just the right size - not gigantic (like the bubble necklaces of years past ;) but still substantial.
J.Crew Factory Pom Pom Scarf - originally $39.50, on sale $23.50. I realized putting this away that I already own two scarves that are exactly the same color - whoops! The pom poms are so cute though (and I'm figuring this will double as a nice nursing cover) so I decided to keep it anyway.
J.Crew Factory Kiss Tee - originally $39.50, on sale $13.95. I resisted and resisted this tee shirt, mostly because I definitely do not need another black and white graphic tee with words on it. But when it went on super sale with free shipping, I just couldn't resist ;)
Sam Edelman Espadrilles - $99.95. These are so cute in person, I can't wait to wear them this summer!

Total Spent: $231.04
Total Saved: $98.40

In March I'm guessing I'll be shopping for some springier clothes once I start to get a feel for what size I'll be wearing, because I'm dying for some warmer weather over here and fun spring clothes are always an outlet for me.

Did you budget in February? Any good finds?
