I can't believe December is over, or that it lasted this long, but here we are. This month was a bit nuts in terms of budgeting, with Christmas, my birthday and a trip to Nashville, but the new year will bring some more manageable spending (hopefully).
As I mentioned in my budget post, I set aside a specific amount for clothing, and, in an effort to hold myself accountable, what I bought and spent is detailed below. This month was pretty light in terms of what I bought for myself, but I did manage to get some pretty amazing details -
Old Navy Flannel - $20 (used Christmas gift card)
It filled a layering gap in my closet, and I liked that it would work with every sweater I own
Dansko clogs - $5
Found in a Savers. They're not in the best condition, but most of the issues were fixed with a cleaning and some black Sharpie
Ann Taylor bag - $25
I had been looking for a smaller bag to carry when I'm not lugging around my camera, and I loved the color of this (mine is cranberry, but I can't find an image anywhere). The store I was in had it marked down 40%, but when the lady rang it up, it was only 25. No idea how that math works, but I ran before she questioned anything.
2 Victoria's Secret bras - $60
Ugh. Nothing fancy, just needed some replacements. I despise bra shopping, but it definitely needed to happen.
Total - $110 (total budget for the month is $150)
Overall, I'm pleased with everything I got. I'm planning an early January shopping trip to hunt down some black dress pants (my pair died in October), so next month might include some slightly more investment-priced pieces, but it will be really nice to have black work pants again).
Linking up with Fran for the first time this month - I'm excited!
