I didn't do a budget post in February because, well, I didn't buy anything in February. And yes, it felt so good. I bought a few things this month, but I mostly used gift cards I had been hoarding. Oh yes, I am a gift card hoarder. I've written about it once... no twice before, so I won't go into it too much except to say I've had the Francesca's card since Christmas and the Anthro card for a year. A year. I'm weird.
1. I finally made it to Anthropologie to spend my gift card and of course I ended up in the sale section. This skirt was $19.99, which is pretty much insane for Anthro. It was originally $158 (what?) so it pretty much forced me to buy it.
2. I had a gift card to Francesca's that I got from taking back a gift I got for Christmas. I've never shopped there before (I feel like most of the stuff is a little young for me) but I was excited to spend my free money. I got earrings really similar to these that I love. They were $12, but, you know, free money.
3. I am a dress person. I love skirts, and dresses are just so easy to wear (one piece and you're done!). I fell in love with this pretty navy fit-and-flare dress. It fits really well and I don't own a navy dress so it felt like a good purchase. It is on sale for $69.95, but I used my giftcard.
4. And the final Francesca's purchase: this maxi dress. I mentioned on Friday that I am loving cutout dresses (the kind that are not too flashy) and I found this pretty dress on Sunday, so it was meant to be. I am kind of obsessed with maxis (again, that whole dress - one piece thing) and I am so excited for it to get warm so I can wear them again! I will probably wear it to work this summer (with a cardigan of course!) so I feel like I will get a lot of wear out of it.
Total spent from budget: $0 (victory!)
