Dress, Dorothy Perkins $12.00

I went $20 over my budget, which isn’t too bad. I really LOVED this fitness look from Fabletics and needed new work pants, so at least I don’t feel guilty about my purchases!

How did you do this month?

Also, I received two basics to review from Front Row Shop (one review here – the other is coming soon) this month, a patterned sweater and faux leather shorts from OASAP (see the review here) and a Maggy London dress (will be coming to the blog soon, been too cold to wear it)!

    I went overboard buying accessories from shops I found on instagram this month. I think I’m gonna beg you for help. I’m so uninspired by the thrift store lately, so I’ve been shopping at REGULAR stores and I guess I’ve thrifted so long I can’t shop sales at regular stores?
    So I’m just gonna send you a list of stuff I want with my money and budget and let you make magic happen each month.
    (Though I did have extra spending money this month because I paid March’s phone bill in February for some reason. $160 for jewelry baby woo! lol.)

      GIRL! I would seriously do this for you! I go back and forth on thrift shopping and regular store shopping and online shopping. It isn’t a great routine, but I am doing better at buying less and staying in a budget and WEARING items I buy more. But seriously! I will do it, just let me know, email me! 🙂 I would love to, it would be fun for me and make me feel like I’m shopping, but it will be for you!

    I love your picks! Fabletics is amazing so if that’s your extra $20 you’re totally forgiven. 🙂

    Love the reds and coral this month- gorgeous! And I am loving my Fabletics membership too! Curious to see the length on the shorts– have you posted a pic of yourself in them on IG? I think they’d be great for summer running because they wouldn’t ride up but wouldn’t squeeze my thighs too much to look like sausages lol!

    great job staying (almost) at budget!!! I have to say the black shoes are my favorite–I have a thing for t-straps. I also did fairly well this month – I stayed very close to my budget for once!

    I love how unafraid of color you are! And those windowpane print pants are fab!

      I have been in such a colorless rut lately, I had to get some bright colors to incorporate in my regular weekday wardrobe!

      This is my first time owning something from them (I think) I know I used to shop there when I studied abroad in the UK! Anyway, the t-strap pumps are absolutely amazing! Going to be worn over and over again at work!
