If you're new around here, I share my clothing purchases on the blog every month. I do it for two reasons. First off, I'm not OK with spending a lot of money on clothes. Posting what I buy every month is a way of keeping myself accountable. Secondly, I am trying to build a more versatile wardrobe and keeping track of my purchases helps me see what I'm buying versus what I am actually wearing. So, here's what I bought in November:
1. Green Open Front Cardigan I have a really similar cardigan in maroon that I wear to work a lot, so I thought this would be a great addition to my wardrobe. Plus, it's my favorite color! I bought it with a gift card I had been hoarding since summer. I got it for $22.99 but it's currently on sale for $13.79.
2. Toms Wedges Yes, Sandals. I can't wear them until next year, but I found them for a great price at a local shop ($29) and I thought they would be a great replacement for my favorite Old Navy wedges (worn here) that finally died. I was so bummed when the strap broke, but I figured it was a good time to invest in a nicer pair that hopefully won't break. Also, I am 6 feet tall in these. I haven't decided if that is a positive or a negative, but you know, I'm mentioning it.
3. Denim Leggings This is the only thing I bought on Black Friday (online! In-store Black Friday shopping is my worst nightmare). I actually haven't received them yet, so we'll see if I like them. These were ordered as a replacement for a pair of jeggings that I love that are slowly starting to get holes in them. They were $16.99.
4. Necklace/Earring Set We recently got a Charming Charlie in town, so I went to "check it out." I ended up buying this set for $6.99. I don't really have any reason to be honest. It was totally one of those "eh, it's on sale purchases." Anyway, I feel pretty confident that I will get a lot of wear out of it, so hopefully I won't regret it.
Total Cash: $52.98
I am honestly not that impressed with how much I spent, just because it is so close to Christmas. I usually try to cut back during holiday months since we spend more on gifts. Here's to being frugal in December!
