I know, I know, I went over this month. But I had been saving for Hunter boots since we started a clothing budget in June. After spending more this month, I am really pleased I still have some money set aside in case there is another larger purchase I want to make. Overall, I am really happy with all my purchases even though I went a little skirt crazy! There were so many cute ones on thredUp, I couldn't decide and with all I got, I didn't really pay that much because of my credits. And can you really turn down a $6.99 leather pencil skirt?!
Make sure you stop by tomorrow for some very exciting giveaway news!

  6. Despite getting expensive Hunter Boots your excellent budget was still under 200 bucks. I am jealous. You had Green & Skirts in mind, this past month. =) I love the Boots, Leather Pencil Skirt & Bow-Tie Blouse the most. =)

  7. I definitely seemed to follow a trend this month when buying things: green and skirts!

  8. I got a coupon in the mail for $10 off anything $10 or more so I couldn't pass it up! The sweater was only $10.99 so with tax=$1.05 and SOLD! ;)

  9. I am that way with pants, but I am generally the same skirt or top size no matter the store. Twice is a similar store, but includes measurements of the clothing which is really helpful when figuring out if it will fit you or not. With both of their $10 referral codes, I couldn't say no!

  11. Wow... I can't believe you spent under $200 still after getting the Hunters! You are so good at this.

  13. I am a huge ThredUP fan, lover and frequent buyer. In fact I have so many clothes right now because of ThredUP and I could not be more thankful or happy. I have a style board on ThredUP and if you pick items (I have over 5K right now) you can get an additional 10% off of that item. I mean that makes even low prices even lower! Even if I don't have an item you want listed all it takes is an email or comment (I'm on FB) I can just add it in so you get the discount. Here is my women's style board http://www.thredup.com/shop/women?shortcut=321, but I have a board for boys and girls too for anyone who has children.

    You got a lot of great items and I'm so jealous of your $6.99 leather skirt!!! Good haul woman!

  14. Thanks! I figured it was worth it since my Target pair lasted about a year. Thank goodness for thrifting when you want clothes, but feel guilty about a larger purchase! ;)

  16. I am just smitten with your purple skirt!!!! I want one just like it!! :)

  17. I loved it online, but of course now that I have it I'm having a little trouble. The texture makes it a little more difficult to pair things with. It sits really high on my waist, too. I think a little more playing around with and I'll like it though! I just haven't had the time!
