February Budget


1. Bootcut jeans-Loft via Twice $6.95 (similar, similar, $10 off first purchase at Twice)
2. Sweatshirt for DIY-Target $10.54 (exact, similar)
3. Dark skinny jeans-Urban Outfitters via Twice $10 (exact?, similar)
4. Medium blue skinny jeans-Gap via Twice $21.90 (similar, similar)
5. Sailboat top-Target $6.31 (exact, orange)
6. Leopard belt-Target $14.35 (exact, similar)
Total: $70.05
 (I also received a sweater, sweater dress, and leather accented sweater by Design History c/o this month)

I clearly had denim on the mind! Lots of my denim has been wearing out lately or hasn't been fitting correctly. You know when the waist gets all stretched out and you aren't wearing a belt as an accessory anymore, but as a necessity? I hate that. So I finally took a chance and used some credits and sale code at Twice and got a few pairs of jeans. Luckily 3 out of 4 pairs worked out! I also had to replace my leopard belt. All the calf hair was falling off my old one, so hopefully Target does the trick again!

There hasn't been much in the stores yet that has caught my eye. But I also haven't been able to go shopping lately. Spring break is coming up so I might have a chance to do some shopping then. Or just keep saving up and get something fun like these, this, or this!

  1. WOW you did awesome this month and spent so little. Great way to vamp up your Jeans' Wardrobe. What kind of website is Twice? Is it a website to find new brand-name clothing for huge discounted prices, sort of like Marshalls or TJ Maxx? I loved your Gray Sweatshirt and even better after your DIY. The boat-neck tank is great also. Congrats on your c/o items too. Show them to us - cannot wait to see how you style them. =)


    Love all of your Wants' List. I want some Black Reva Flats too, so classy. The Kate Spade Bags are both gorgeous. Loving the darker blue one especially.


    Have a Great Weekend from Vivian and I.

  6. Yay for being sailboat twins! I think Ginny from My New Favorite Outfit has it too. I'm already wishing for warmer weather so I can wear it with my white shorts!

  15. Nicely done on the jeans! Mine are holding up alright for now, which is great because I hate shopping for jeans...but I'm hoping to try out LOFT or Gap next time I need to replace a pair or two :) I am also eager to see what comes out for spring. I am not in need of very much, but I'd love to get a few more skirts and some tees to round out my spring/summer wardrobe. Hopefully there will be some great things coming out! :)
