I am really excited about some of the fall staples I got this month. All the tops are really comfortable and versatile and can be worn now or after the baby. I also got some seriously amazing deals on shoes between rewards coupons, birthday coupons, and sales at DSW. $12 for Steve Madden suede booties? Sign me up! I have found so many hidden gems marked down 70 or 80% in the clearance section I can't believe it. I did use some of my budget for some pampering. I got my hair highlighted and trimmed and I am planning on getting a manicure soon. Hopefully there is time for a pedicure and facial once the busyness of the start of school dies down. For next month, I have a list of a few more fall staples I'd like to keep an eye out for like a burgundy cardigan, black cardigan, striped dress, and grey tee.
What is on your wish list for fall?

  15. I love how you do this Laura. I'm sure it keeps you much more accountable---I haven't been so good lately....eeek!!

  16. I really like that burgundy tunic, but you did get a lot of great pieces this month.

    You're such a great bargain hunter too, you manage to get so many items for so little money.

    I actually ended up buying something full price this month, haha. I wanted to wait for a sale but I'd been stalking it after I saw it during my no-shop challenge and I didn't want to miss out on it! Has been interesting shopping again after 7 months of no spending!

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend ahead of you :)
