The monthly shopping confessions continue, my friends. For those of you that are new, I share all of the clothing items I've bought each month on the blog. I do it because, well, I like seeing what other people spend each month. It's nice knowing that there are other people out there who don't spend $200 on jeans (gross) and still manage to dress well.
I'm combining August & September because when August came to a close I was busy gallivanting in California and I really didn't have much to share anyway. So without further ado, my purchases:
1. Dolce Vita Ankle Boots (similar1, similar2). Let's chat ankle boots for a minute. I NEVER thought I would like them. When I first noticed people wearing them I thought they were strange. This year, I couldn't wait to get a pair. I'm just not very "cutting edge" when it comes to style. I usually wait until something has been popular for a while before I try it out. I also like to wait because you can find things at better prices after they're popular. I believe these shoes were originally $100, but I found them at Piperlime for $29.
2. When I was in San Francisco, I ran into H&M for about 10 minutes. My bestie Hanna had to buy a purse (hers randomly started falling apart in the middle of the street). So while I was waiting in line with her, I picked up a necklace for $10 (not available online, but this necklace is similar). I kind of feel like I can't walk by an H&M without buying anything because there aren't any where I live.
3. I own a really nice black pencil skirt from BR, but strangely, my favorite pencil skirt is a pink one from Target (seen here). It is very thick and lined, so it feels much more expensive than it is. I have been thinking about getting the same Target skirt in green and I finally did! I actually found it online during a sale and was able to snag it for $15.
I feel pretty good about how much I spent over the last two months. I have been itching to buy some pretty fall clothes, but I am making myself wait until it is cool outside and I pack away all my summer clothes. I've also been hoarding some gift cards so October could be craaaazy.
