October Budget

This ended up being a spendier month than I expected.  I had the opportunity to shop in store a little bit, which ended up leading to some of my favorite purchases in the last few months. I've worn both skirts about once a week for the past month, and the tops work well with the rest of my wardrobe.


Red skirt // $23
Blush tank // $8
Ruffle bottom blouse // $12
Flippy skirt // $23
Cognac boots // $32
Maroon boatneck tee // $6
Hogwarts tee // $5

Total // $109

I got a little overwhelmed with my closet this month, and also realized that my clothing spending wasn't quite matching up with how I spend the rest of my money.  Bottom line, I'm taking a break from fast fashion/super cheap everything and focusing on buying from brands whose mission and processes I really believe in.  Right now, Brass, Everlane and Grana are the three of found, but would  love to hear other suggestions!

  1. I have been looking for a pair of affordable cognac riding boots. How do you like yours? Would you recommend them? (Stopping by from Fran's link up)

    1. I love them! They're definitely not expensive boots (they smell pretty fake, though that's fading). I would absolutely recommend them!

  3. Oh that red skirt is beautiful! :) I really like those boots too, such a practical purchase with the cooler weather ahead for you!

    Sorry I don't have any new brands in mind for you - but you've got three great ones mentioned :)

    Hope you're having a good week :)
