October Budget

From all J Crew to no J Crew.  Sorry, Jenna Lyons.  Instead, a few random pieces that, though I didn't necessarily think I needed them, have gotten a lot of wear.  The booties are my favorite - super comfortable and the first pair of booties I've ever felt look good on me with skirts/dresses.

october budget, blog budget, LOFT aztec gold top, LOFT shell, LOFT skirt, Forever 21 suede booties, Old Navy vest, Old Navy pullover, buffalo check

1 // Old Navy Top - $15
2 // LOFT Top - $22
3 // Old Navy Vest - $25
4 // LOFT Shell - $14
5 // LOFT Skirt - $15
6 // Forever 21 Booties - $28

Some notes - the LOFT skirt is gorgeous - a very nice lined tweed with great winter or spring colors, but it runs quite small.  I sized up and was more comfortable. The length is appropriate for work.  The LOFT top is listed as gold, but is much closer to mustard.  It's completely see through, but moves beautifully. And the booties are fabulous - they make my legs look a mile long.

Linking up with Fran!

  3. I'll just go ahead and take that Old Navy plaid number out of your Christmas pile. Could you send out alerts when something goes from the Lust List to the closet?

    1. Like minute by minute? Cause that's exactly what the budget post is about... And I'm done buying myself things until after Christmas

  4. I totally get it with the all Crew to no Crew. While I did bring home one retail piece and a few factory pieces, I didn't "love all the things" like I usually do. In fact, I even told my VPS that everything was just meh. He agreed. I love #1 and #2 tons. The polka dot top reminds me of one that I recently had to let go of due to changing body shape. It was a sad day.

  6. I'm a shortie so anything that elongates the body is a plus in my book-yay to for the booties

  7. Every single one of these pieces is amazing! I've been in the market for a nicer, white shell. How do you like yours from the loft?
