september budget

september budget 1

one: Loft blouse (originally $44, on sale for $22)
two: Sole Society purse ($50)
three: Frye flats ($148 + with gift card = $0)
four: J.Crew Factory skirt (originally $78, on sale for $39)
five: J.Crew Factory bow blouse (originally $40, on sale for $20)
six: Old Navy coat (originally $45 + $20 coupon = $25)

September budget: $156

$441 left from August - $156 purchased + $40 sold = $315 left for October

Over the last year, my closet colors have slowly turned into mostly white, grey, black, olive, and cognac, so this month's purchases were no different! I'm super happy with everything I purchased, and love that I can think of a bunch of outfits just by looking at them all together above.

My favorite buy is, of course, the cognac purse - I know it keeps popping in and out of stock, so if you are interested, keep an eye on it. I've been using it every single day! The flats were purchased with a giftcard - my banana republic flats have looked a bit worn and tired after two straight years of wearing them, so it was time to add in another pair to the rotation. These Frye flats have a slight pointed toe, and are very comfortable after only a few minutes of breaking in the leather. I'm also super excited to wear the Old Navy coat I mentioned a few weeks ago - it's in the low 60's in Hamburg, so it is definitely going to get some use when I am there (, since that's where I currently am!). I sized down to a medium to keep it a bit more fitted. 

As always, I like to mention what I added to my closet c/o as a way to stay transparent. This month I was able to pick out a pair of jeans from J.Crew Factory (you can see them here), as well as a pair of Converse from Shopbop

While I have quite a chunk of money left over for October, I don't have a lot of plans for it. I would like to add a few sweaters to my closet, so I'll definitely be on the look out when I'm out and about in NYC. I'd also still like to try this open cardigan from Ann Taylor, if it ever gets a bit cheaper!
