Budgeting Shopping

A May Spending Story

I blame this month’s obsessive shopping to the fact that it was my birthday month. There’s always an excuse, am I right? I also know that once we move I’ll be on a hella strict budget so shopping will be practically non-existent…YOLO! But for-realsies, I’m going to be reigning it in from here on out.

Total Spent: $206.74 (saved: $85.64)

I think every gal goes a little spend happy during her birthday, and folks, that’s exactly what I did. First up is the Lou & Grey jumpsuit I picked up at Loft (worn here). This, my friends, will be worn to death, I’m warning you now. It’s just so easy and can be styled so many different ways! The Forever 21 midi (worn here) has already been worn to work several times and I don’t see that streak stopping any time soon. I also love that it’s neutral enough to be worn wear year round. Forever 21 Palm Print Crop Top (worn here) was a mindless purchase but no regrets, right? The JustFab Printed Wrap Dress (worn here) is a great addition to my wardrobe for client meetings because it’s professional yet still allows for some personality. I haven’t worn the JustFab Legacy Bag yet because it’s a little brighter than I’m accustom to when it comes to handbags but I’m excited to use it moving forward. So the Apt.9 Cross-body (worn here) was a total random purchase but when I saw the Rebecca Minckoff knock-off I just couldn’t say no. Might be picking up another one in a different color;) So the fugly lounge sandals that are currently all the rage are just not my style until I came across the SONOMA look-a-likes from Kohl’s (worn here). And lastly, when you step into a Target for one thing and come out with a cute chambray top. I know I’m not the only one.

So how will my shopping budget fluctuate going forward with the move? I do not know but I do know that I’ll be spending a lot less. I guess we’ll see how things go.
