Budget Rewind - May 2014
May 2014 was a light shopping month, except for the stupid suit that I bought. I could have told you it was stupid when I bought it, but I felt like I needed it for an important last minute work trip. And I wish I had just made something else work, because it probably wouldn't have been a big deal. Otherwise, it was a pretty good month:
Sperrys: $60 : I'd been wanting these forever, and finally took the plunge. My only regret is not buying them sooner.
Merona Shorts: $10 - Love these, and I wore them a bunch last summer. Hoping they will fit again soon!
NY&Co Silver bow belt: $2
Steve Madden 2-pack skinny belts black and brown: $10
H&M Skirt: $7 (originally $17) - I wore this a lot last summer on days when I didn't take pictures, so I think I've probably worn it 7 times, at least. And as a black/white printed knit pencil skirt, I think it will continue to be something I reach for.
H&M Workout Tanks (I got pink and leopard): $5 each - the first time I wore the pink one, I realized it was actually quite see-through. Oops. So, I have to wear a black tank underneath it, which means it isn't great for working out. I've worn it a few times just as a casual tank. The leopard one is great, though.
Le Suit Blazer: $54 (originally $79) - Hey, I've at least worn this twice! I do think I will be able to wear this with jeans or other skirts/dresses as a layering piece. And I think it's pretty classic, so maybe it will be a long-term good, but based on the last year, it's not been a great purchase.
Le Suit Skirt: $25 (originally $50): worn just once, and not sure how useful it's going to be in the future.
So let's just pretend I didn't buy the suit, okay?
