April Budget

First of all, thank you so much for all of your kind comments and emails from my Wednesday post. It was definitely something I was worried to put out there, but the amazing blogging community really blew me away. My husband and I are beyond grateful for your support! We would like you to know if you have gone through this or something similar or are going through it right now, you are in our thoughts and prayers! And if you are going through this and have questions, please know I am here for you. I had no knowledge at the beginning of any of this and I have learned so much about alternative medicine, insurance, and diagnostic tests that I am happy to share!
april monthly clothing budget post

1. Striped dress c/o SheIn (similar, similar)
2. Floral dress c/o SheIn (similar, similar)
3. White dress c/o Sammydress (similar, similar)
4. Mules c/o Sammydress (similar, similar)
5. Black lace up top c/o Sammydress (similar, similar)
6. Sandals- DSW, $10.51 (exact, similar)
7. Lace up sandals- Sammydress $24.69 (similar, similar)
8. Navy flats-Cole Haan via DSW $16.87 (similar, similar)
9. Jeans-Old Navy $9.50 with coupon (exact, similar)
Total: $61.57

I have been wanting a new pair of jeans more fitted in the ankles and I think I finally found the right pair with the Super Soft Old Navy Rockstars. They were a great price with my Old Navy Supercash and I was able to replace my black jeans too (although I need to exchange them for a different size so they will be on next month's budget). I had some DSW coupons and cash too so I am set for for summer with shoes (and then some).

For next month I am looking to exchange/replace my black jeans as mine are a little too low cut for my taste. After trying on the Mid-Rise Rockstar Skinny Jeans I know they will be perfect. I have a pair of Rockstars I had to size up with, but with this cut I didn't find that so I am looking forward to getting them in my typical size! The fabric was really soft and I liked the thinner denim fabric. I am also looking for a summer hat in a lighter color. I have a straw fedora already, but I want something with a wider brim like a Panama hat, or maybe just a floppy hat in a taupe. I haven't decided yet.
What is on your wish list for next month?


  1. You got some great pieces! I haven't tired the ON rockstars and really should. Love those lace-up sandals! Have a wonderful weekend!
