December Budget

Recent Purchases

Although I’ve been trying to do a better job of budgeting, I just can’t help myself around the holidays! Thanks to Santa, I had a bit more spending money and thanks to the awesome sales, I ended up with three new pairs of boots, a new pair of neutral heels for work, a lovely pair of emerald earrings and a faux leather navy skirt (both on my Christmas Wishlist seen here)

Taupe Casual Boots- JustFab (Sold out) – $39.95

Faux Leather Skirt- ChicWish (Available here) – $39.90

Whitley Brown Booties- JustFab (Available here) – $39.95 with a Buy One, Get One Free Deal

Sabine Taupe Pumps- JustFab (Available here) – FREE with Buy One, Get One Free Deal

Emerald Earrings- Fantasy Jewelry Box (Available here) – $24.95

Sam Edelman Snow Leopard Booties- ShopBop (Available here) – $48.00 FINAL SALE at 70% off

Not Pictured:

Red Dress, Earrings and Red Bracelet for NYE via Nordstrom Rack: $77.45

TOTAL: $270.20

This is way more than I would usually spend per month, but considering I have 3 new pairs of boots, 2 things off my wishlist and had a fabulous time on NYE, I am feeling alright about it. Plus Santa knows what I’m going to spend my Christmas money on… I am a fashion blogger after all πŸ˜‰

Next up: January! Shopping budget set at $200 (because it is birthday month… the rest of the year the budget will be MUCH lower). Let’s see how I do! (See my very first budget post here)

What have you purchased recently?!

    I love the leopard print booties you bought!

    I purchased a coat, some jeans, a sweater and a purse with my Christmas money – all from the thrift store though, so it wasn’t too bad!
