I have been trying to curb my spending/buying this past month. I feel like my closet is more than stocked. I was really excited to pick up the Sperry boots. I had some Shopbop credits from a collaboration I did with them a while back and snagged them during their sale (even with credits I hate paying full price). The black wool hat is one I highly recommend. I got a burgundy one from ebay last winter, but this one from Express is much nicer quality. Now if only it would stop being so windy and I could wear it more often! I am looking forward to wearing the ifchic sweater once it comes in the mail. I will make sure and share my thoughts once it comes, but I have to say everything (minus a ring I got that was too small) I have really liked and been impressed with.

For next month, I am going to try and keep spending small again. There aren't too many things I have on my wishlist. The rebellious part of me wants some leather pants, but that is about it. I tossed the leather leggings I got last fall due to fit and want some in pants form now. What's on your November list?


  1. You did well, you got a lot of things despite spending so little! :)

    I've been slowing down on my purchasing lately too - haven't bought clothes in ages, I'm pretty content with what I have, and trying to tame my overflowing wardrobe!

    Thanks for your comment on my last post about blogger struggles! Your tip about thinking about what's outside the photo is a good one :)

  2. All great finds! That palm print top is my fave. I'm trying to curb my spending habits too for November. It got a little crazy this October! :)

  3. How's the quality of that palm print top? I haven't been thrilled with any SheInside/ChicWish item, but that top is awfully tempting.

  4. Wow you did really well, I need to stay on budget way more!! Love the palm print top and those cute Sperry boots!

  5. You got so many great pieces this month! I can't believe November starts Sunday…crazy.

  6. Wow, I can't even believe how much you got for less than $20!! Budgeting at its finest! :)

  7. You did really well for less than $20! I love those Sperry's and the black hat!

  9. Wow, less than $20, that is AMAZING! I need to learn your ways! I don't even want to know what I spent this month! That cognac bag is gorgeous, you have a great husband :) also I want some leather pants too!

  10. Those Sperry boots are super cute- and way to wait it out for the sale! That hat looks fabulous- you will rock it with your long hair, super chic I'm sure! And those SheIn pieces are so great! I reached out to them to be a part of their blog ambassador group via their website, but haven't heard back...their pieces look so nice!

  11. I got a bag with my Shopbop credit during the sale. Such a good time to snag something you really want. It looks like a good month!

  14. i love it when you share your budget with us!!

  16. The palm print top is so pretty! I love it! As much as I try to curb my shopping, I just enjoy it too much and find it very hard to go any month without picking up something.

  17. love the look with the max jeans, great color for fall

  18. You did so good as always. My favorite things from this month are those accessories. I want everything on that middle row! =P

  19. I can't believe how popular duck boots are now! My college roommate freshman year wore duck boots, and I think she was the only person I knew who owned them. If neon and pastel Uggs ever become a thing, we'll know she was ahead of her time.

  20. You found some great items this month! I bet you'll be getting a lot of use from them in the coming months! Way to go on all that you saved!
