January Budget

As I'm looking at the list of things I bought this month, I'm realizing that I don't think I've ever loved a month of products like I love this January's.  Seriously, everything on this list has been worn at least twice a week since I got it, and I don't see that changing any time soon. The Bobeau cardigans are my new obsession.  To be honest, I tipsy ordered them on New Year's Eve and was for-sure going to return at least one when the order came in. But then they came, and I tried them on and loved them both so much that I had a Sophie's choice moment in my closet before deciding to keep them.  The one I'll likely get in more colors is number 4 - the inside feels like baby chinchillas, even though I don't actually know what a baby chinchilla feels like...  

1 // Old Navy Leggings - $8
2 // Old Navy Leggings - $10
3 // BP Scarf - $11
4 // Bobeau Cardigan (Mink) - $40
5 // Bobeau Cardigan (Heather Gray) - $40
6 // Easy Spirit Boots - $47

January total // $156
Quarterly Budget // $500 - $156 = $344 left for February and March

Notes - Everything fits TTS.  I prefer the ON leggings in a medium, because I prefer for them to be a tight fit, but a large would probably work fine.  I got both Bobeau cardigans in a large and find them both very comfortable.  Number 5 is much thinner and made of a ribbed knit, while 4 is thicker and fleecy.  I prefer 4 for winter, but think that 5 will be handy in the spring.  The Easy Spirit boots are super comfy and fit beautifully.

  5. I love the Bobeau cardigan so much! I have one in gray. They're extremely popular with a lot of my college classmates too. I also was feeling like I was unlikely to keep it when I first ordered mine more than a year ago, but the fleece ones are just so comfy. I always wear mine whenever I have to take a plane.

  8. I love those cardigans> It's not a look I can pull off but living where I do (Calgary) I love anything that's soft, cozy and warm
