September Shopping

September is over, so let's review the shopping that happened.  The first 2 items were technically purchased in August, but the top hadn't arrived in the mail yet, so I wasn't sure if I would keep it.  And the necklace, I just completely forgot about including, so I'm adding it now.  Otherwise, I just didn't really keep track of my shopping.  I was in Indy for Labor Day weekend and bought a couple things at the Gap.  Then I went shopping with a friend and picked up a few more random things.  And then H&M opened in town and I had to check it out.  But I was pretty good and didn't buy everything that tempted me.  And I couldn't find pictures of everything, so my collage is deceptively minimal.  Here's the whole truth:  

J.Crew polka dot popover: $24 (originally $70) (exact)
F21 Long silver necklace: $8 (exactsimilar)
Gap navy skirt: $12 (originally $50) (exact)
Gap white/black tee: $7 (originally $27) (exact)
Old Navy windowpane top: $10 (originally $25) (exact)
Old Navy Pink skirt: $3 (originally $25) (this style in this color)
Old Navy white skirt: $3 (originally $25)
Gap white/gray skirt: $12 (originally $45) (this style in this color)
H&M black/gray leopard tee: $13 
H&M layering tanks (gray and navy): $5 each

Total: $102 (originally $300)

This means that I'm almost exactly at budget year-to-date.  I have $5.32 rolling into October!  

October will probably be light (don't I say that every month?).  My birthday is at the end of the month, so I am usually not supposed to buy things for myself before then.  We shall see!   As always, I'm linking up with Franish for Budgeting Bloggers.  


  1. I really like that windowpane top! I never would have guessed it is Old Navy, it looks pricier! Nice total for all you got!

  2. You scored some killer pieces! :)

  3. You got a lot of fun items this month. Can't wait to see how you style your pink skirt.

  4. I have that exact polka dot shirt sitting in my Wishlist. Do you like it?

  5. You find the best things at Gap. I really like that striped tee, a lot. Wear it soon, pleeease!

  6. These are some great items! That's crazy you saved over $200 off of the original prices!

  7. I totally have some months where I buy and don't keep track of it throughout the month, I just know that I've tried to make good purchases. I think that's been one of the best things about rolling over my budgets throughout the year. That Gap tee looks like it would be super comfortable.

  8. I agree with Kate--you seem to find great things at Gap! Whenever I go, everything seems overpriced and boring, but you manage to find such cute items like that navy skirt!

  9. Love, love, love the navy skirt you found! It's perfect :)
