May 2013 Buys

I know I went over budget this month but it’s all for a good cause!




Grey Cardi | Target = $19.99

Black Cardi | J.Crew Factory = $24.50

5″ Chino Shorts | J.Crew Factory = $39.50 (for both)

Skinny Ankle Jeans | J.Crew Factory = $39.50

Rain Jacket | Marley Lilly = $59.99

Total = ~$185.00

This month, I focused on buying high quality pieces that would last me a long time.  I especially needed the shorts since I owned zero pairs of non-running shorts.  The cardigans are basic, but high quality so I can donate my lower-quality cardi’s.  And the jeans are ones that actually fit! Woohoo!  The rain jacket was a bit of a splurge, but I’ve eyeing it for a while and should last even longer.  There are still a few more items that I need to purchase for our trip, but I’ll wait until next weekend to do that (June budget, baby!).

What did you buy this month?

  1. That rain jacket is SO cute! I want to buy everything monogrammed, but I’m being a bit silly in thinking my initials might change within the next two years but maybe I should just buy some things anyway 🙂 Also I love those chino shorts!

  2. You bought some awesome basics! I can’t tell you how many black cardigans I’ve had to buy and re-buy because I bought them cheap and they wore out. Much better to spend a little more and then have something that lasts you a long time!

    • Me too. I just put two black cardis in the donate pile. Quality over quantity at this point in our lives, right? 🙂
