Oof. I don't know if it was a combination of stress and lack of sleep, buying for the sake of buying or because I actually loved the article of clothing; all I know is I bought quite a lot this past month. Shall we have a look at the damage?
Emaline Pullover - $29.95
JBrand 29" Skinny - $158
Collared Cowlneck - $29.95
Ombre Polka Scarf - $29.95
Painted V-neck - $29.95
Catalan Tee - $39.95
Amrita Cardigan - $49.95
Pieced Column Dress - $178
BP Ginger Boot - $64.90
Stuart Weitzman Cadet Boot - $199.90
Final Tally: $780.55 (!!??!) and that doesn't include taxes and some shipping fees.
OMG that total is so ridiculous. I don't think I realized how much I spent because I did it in little chunks. Each transaction wasn't too much but altogether is out of control. I will admit I held off on publishing this post because of the amount I spent. I know some people have larger budgets and some smaller but this is more than I personally care to spend. I don't enjoy posting this for all to see and it's certainly not to encourage anyone else to shop but I think it's a good balance check for me to see what I'm buying and how much I'm actually spending. My mindset was mostly "oh it's on sale and it's not too much" but it definitely adds up quick. Looking at the list, I don't know that I love any of it. I definitely LIKE some of the stuff I bought but do I need it?
I can tell you right now a few things are most definitely going back so my March tally isn't as steep as I posted above and there are also some items that I'm on the fence about. Perhaps my next post will be a quick review of each item and I can get your opinions on what to keep and what to return. How was your shopping month? Did you stay on budget or fall off like I did?
