Not going to lie, February was expensive.
(And yes, this month's budget has been blown, but I am sticking to my mantra of quality vs. quantity and hoping to hold on to my purchases for a long, long time)
|if you like it, and have some place to wear it -|
it's from the gap - and it's on sale right now!
<---- this one here.
Too young for the office, too short to chase Hudson around in.... I keep forgetting stuff like that when I go shopping.
Instead I bought this blue/grey top I really like. Like I said, it's blue with grey,so nothing new for me there, but get this - It has a pattern. Flowers!
That's something totally new for my wardrobe.
I am pretty sure the top was the same price, if not cheaper then the skirt - so net budget effect until about the 15th of February was $0.00.
If only I had stopped there, all would have been fine. And I did, I had every intention to avoid spending for the rest of the month.
And... then my boots fell completely fell apart. (No, not the SOREL once, I think those will survive me) but the black leather riding boots that I wear to the office. And by completely, I do not mean like that... meh... good enough 'til spring. I mean COMPLETELY. I was sitting at the library with Hudson and literally had to pick out bits and pieces of the shoe (the sole more specifically) off the ground as we were leaving. My darling husband sighed a little, but then agreed to go on a tour of pretty well every shoe store in the city and entertained Hudson until I found these.
But mine are black.
|Steve Madden, just in case you were wondering.|
But mine are black.
And that, ladies and gentlemen (if there are any outhere reading this sillyness) is how my February personal expenditures allowance was blown. To smitherines. Yikes!
Having said that, I have worn both the sunglasses and the boots every.single.day. since I have acquired them, so I feel like at least I am getting my money's worth.
P.S. Just so you know, I am holding on to all my receipts in anticipation of the reconciliation in July... but, I still need your help picking out a charity. Any suggestions?
