September Shopping

Hey, guess who actually bought some clothes in September?  This girl!  I knew I needed to get serious about jeans shopping before fall actually arrived, and finally bought a couple pairs.  You can read all about that here and here.  Still on the fence about the Loft pair.  I suspect I will keep them, but I just hate spending that much on anything.   

Gap Slim Straight Jeans: $42 (originally $70)
Gap Chambray Dress: $7 (originally $60) (similar with sleeves)
Loft Curvy Skinny Jeans: $42 (originally $80) - currently 40% off with code FALL40)
LeTote subscription: $30 (originally $55)

Total: $121 (originally $265)

Since I barely spent any money on clothes in the last 3 months, I'm still like $400 under budget for the year.  Which really means I probably don't need such a big clothing budget, huh?  Or I should probably use some of that money to buy some new tennis shoes.  Maybe that should be my October shopping task.  

As always, linking up for Budgeting Bloggers!  


  1. yay for buying some new jeans. I hope you find the tennis shoe you want.

  2. I hated spending $50 on my Loft jeans, but when I realize I wear them 1-2x a week, it's easier to handle. At this point, I'm willing to shell out for a pair of pants that fit well. Good luck finding tennis shoes! I could easily have 100 pairs (even though I rarely ever wear them).

  3. I say keep your budget. Just because you haven't been shopping much and keep coming under budget doesn't mean that one month you may splurge a little. Jeans shopping is just dreadful. I'm glad you found a few pairs you liked!

  4. I'm loving all of the denim this month!

    Shoes are always so expensive (and the one thing I won't skimp on). You might find the extra money comes in handy!

  5. I would keep your budget right where it is! It's nice to have that extra room available when it comes to something like purchasing a nice coat or a pair of boots.

  6. I love that chambray dress! I just thrifted one similar to it a few months ago and I loooove it!!!
