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 2018 budget here.

Leopard and black and plaid, oh my.

I tried really hard to get myself not to write that, but here we are. I'm just really amused seeing my October purchases all lined up. Two black jeans might seem a little much, but the distressed pair actually is a really faded black in person and is really casual. The other pair is a really dark black and look more like a dress pant than denim. So now I've justified that to myself ;) As far as the double leopard? Well that scarf was on sale for $12, so I basically had to get it. Right? Right.

The month of October basically flew by, and I can't believe I've got an almost eight month on my hands now! My mom brought over my baby book last weekend, and it was funny to look through and see that Mia and I have been tracking the same height and weight almost exactly since birth. Freaky the way those genes work!

Sam Edelman Loafers - originally $140, on sale $112. I've talked about how much I love these already, but they really are the best. I wear them basically every day.
J.Crew Factory Flannel Popover - originally $69.50, on sale $34.95. All of my plaid was in the wash, which made me think that I needed more plaid for fall. I didn't, but I love the popover style so I decided to keep this one.
J.Crew Mid Rise Jeans - originally $110, on sale $66. I wore these over the weekend and I love that they look a little dressed up without being actual dress pants. I haven't owned black jeans in a few years, and I love the way they pair with sweaters and plaid.
J.Crew Factory Leopard Scarf - originally $59.50, on sale $12.49. This is thick and beautiful and expensive looking in person. Just note that it is a full square when you open it up, so it needs to be worn more like a blanket scarf.
Madewell Button Fly Distressed Jeans - $135. I got these on sale. I got my usual Madewell size and they were waaaaay too big. I checked like a madwoman trying to find the size I needed in stock. I thought it never would, so I ended up returning them. The long story short, is that I did manage to find my size and I wanted them so badly I paid full price the second time around. In case you needed to know how good these are. I am wearing these as I type this, and they are incredibly comfortable and flattering.

Total spent: $360.44
Total saved: $153.56

I did order a couple other things that haven't come yet, I'm really hoping this coat fits! I also am looking for a good red sweater. I always want one for the holiday season and then never have one in my closet.

Did you budget this month? Any good scores?
