February Budget

This was kind of a weirdly big shopping month for me - I didn't necessarily feel like I really needed anything (besides more pants and black wedges), but I have picked up a bunch of stuff that made me fall back in love with my closet. I usually like to buy a bunch of new stuff once the weather turns towards spring, but I'm so sick of winter that I decided to pump myself up with a few springy things prematurely.  

1 // Bella Marie wedges via ThredUp - 14.99 (similar)
2 // J Crew top - 17.99 (seen here)
3 // Michael Kors skirt via TJ Maxx - 15.00 (similar) (seen here and here
4 // Adrianna Papell dress via ThredUp - 19.87 (similar)
5 // J Crew top - 29.99 (seen here)
6 // LOFT boyfriend jeans via ThredUp - 17.49 (similar)
7 // Target pants - 27.99 (super comfortable, but they run about 2 sizes small)
8 // British Khaki vest via TJ Maxx (a direct knock off of the J Crew pictured) - 29.99 (seen here)
9 // J Crew top - 17.99 (seen here)

Total - 191.30

The total is definitely more than I typically spend, but it's also a lot of new stuff and filled a good number of closet holes (I basically haven't taken the vest off since I got it).  Now I just need the weather to cooperate so I can stop wearing 42 layers every day.

Linking up with Fran and the other Budgeting Bloggers here


  1. Those wedges are a great thredup find! I've been stalking them for a pair in my size!

    1. It took me a while to find them, but I'm glad I did!

  2. Oh wow, you did such a great job finding stuff on ThreadUp! I still haven't tried it... I need too! And yay for finding that vest at TJ Maxx - such a great find!

    1. ThredUp is a bit of an obsession for me, and it takes a lot of patience to find good stuff, but it's worth it when you score the good stuff!

  3. That dress you got at ThredUp is gorgeous! Nice find!

  4. I have that stripe tee from J.Crew Factory too! It's such a classic. :)

  5. I love all your picks this month. I'm a huge J.Crew fan too. :) Stopping by via Franish. Thanks for sharing!
