Monthly Budget

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a monthly budget post so I thought it was time to take a look at what I’ve been spending lately. I have to admit I’m a little scared to see what I’ve spent this month! 
Monthly Clothing Budget
1) Marais Cowboy Mules – $50 (at sample sale)
2) Gap Distressed Skinny Jeans – $47 (40% off)
3) J.Crew Soft Henley Dress – $83 (25% off)
4) Madewell Composer Shirt – $30 (on clearance)
6) Everlane Tote – $40
7) Mango Lace Up Sandals – $25 (on clearance)
8) Choies Lace Up Gladiator Sandals – $69 (after using points for discount) 
Total: $394
Yikes! It’s amazing how everything adds up! I haven’t been keeping track of how much I’ve been spending each month – obviously! Originally, I had set myself a budget of $150 a month. I was pretty good at sticking to that limit. But then somewhere along the line I just…stopped. It’s a lot more fun to just spend whatever you want…haha. But I know I should probably reign it in a little. 
In my defense, I did get everything except the Everlane pieces on sale. Everlane doesn’t have sales but I really like Everlane’s “Radical Transparency” philosophy and they are based in California so I don’t mind spending a little more on their items. I’m also trying to buy more versatile pieces for my closet. I feel like I’ll wear these pieces A LOT. The tote bag is more of a work purchase since I need a large bag to carry all my teaching supplies.
