While I didn't have a specific goal of spending this month, I did want to curtail it a bit so I had some extra spending money while Matt and I are in Ireland in early April. We've been there a few times before and so we have some favorite stores. It is always fun to buy things while on vacation because odds are that no one has them when you get back home. I didn't want to feel constrained by a budget during my vacation either so now I don't have to worry! 
That said, I still got some fun items! I mentioned there were a few items I wanted for our trip and I scored on ThredUp (use my referral code for $10 off!) with my crossbody bag and two different jacket options. I was really pleased to get the leather jacket because I've been wanting one for a while. I've been wearing it almost non-stop and now I am thinking about adding a cognac one on my wish list! 
I've also been wanting to grow my dress section of my closet. Temperatures are bound to warm up sometime soon and we have no AC so dresses are a great option for work. I am also excited about the red Dooney & Burke bag! How fun is that?! 
For next month I am still thinking about the Emery flats from J.Crew Factory and I would love a striped maxi skirt that doesn't have a fold over top. 
What is on your wish list for spring?

  6. You scored some amazing pieces Laura! I love both of the bags and you really got some cute dresses! Susan

  7. All of your purchases are fantastic! And you spent so little. I always forget about thredUp. I spend a lot of my second hand dollars on Poshmark. A trip to Ireland sounds so fun too. Have a wonderful trip!

  11. You scored some great items this month! I'm noticing a pattern for blue and patterned dresses! I'm super jealous of your cheap leopard heels score from DSW!

  12. Great picks...I really love the leopard pumps! Heading over to check out ThreadUp right now :-)

  13. You got some really great items this month! I've been on the hunt for some leopard print heels, I can't believe I forgot to check DSW!

  14. I get $10 emailed coupons and combined with their clearance prices, I've gotten some amazing deals! I think the trick is to always go check in store!

  15. It's so addictive! I love ThredUp! I just sold a bunch of my old clothes there and got about $20!

  16. You got some really nice items this month! I like those floral printed dresses, very pretty.

    Hope you have an amazing time on your holiday - I think saving up before hand so you can spend a little more freely and just enjoy your vacation instead of counting pennies is always a good way to go :)

    I need to try get my post up for this month soon!

    Away From The Blue

  17. Wow! What great finds and at such wonderful prices! I adore both those handbags! T.

  18. You got a whole lot this month for so little! I'm seriously loving the leather jacket and the leopard pumps.

  19. Love those leopard heels! And all of your cobalt pieces. I've been cobalt crazy lately

  20. I own two DB bags and love mine. Yours are so classy and versatile. You certainly grew your dress collection and your blue items collection last month. The 2 floral shift dresses look almost identical but I love that style. Their prints are so pretty. Cannot wait to see them on you.
