Budget Rewind- February 2015




Time to review my purchases from last year at this time.  February 2015 was another month of mostly maternity purchases.  These are tricky, but I think still categorizable, which apparently isn't a word.  It should be.    

Good
Target Leopard print Ona flats: $8 - I've worn these well over 8 times, and really like them!
Target Maternity White tee: $5 - just a great basic.  I've worn it quite a bit more than I've blogged it.
Old Navy Maternity skinny jeans: $28 - I wore these a lot last pregnancy, and have worn them a lot so far this one.  They are a little too big, so I actually just ordered the same ones in a size smaller.  
Old Navy Maternity black and gray leggings: $18 - These are so comfy!  I loved wearing them under dresses last year, and then for just general lounging around the house.  
Old Navy Maternity black tee: $6 - another good basic tee.  Only blogged once, but I am sure I wore it a lot.


Medium
Loft Maternity Gray quilted dress: $16 - Oh how I love the idea of this dress!  But it is slightly too big around.  I am still wearing it, but it is a little awkward.  I feel like I have to belt it, but then it gets all bunchy. I wonder if I could take it in a bit, but I haven't had time to look at that.  
Loft Maternity Chambray popover: $12 - this was another purchase that I thought I would wear nonstop.  But Loft maternity seems to run a little big, and this particular shirt gets so wrinkly.  I think it sat in my ironing pile more than it got worn.  I do think I will wear it in the coming months some.  
Christopher & Banks Red Scarf: gift - I'm still on the fence about scarves, but this is a pretty one.  


So hey, nothing too bad (or ugly) this month!  I think maternity shopping does make me focus on basics more, so there tends to be less risk of a huge mistake!

  1. I wish I would have made myself blog about my maternity purchases. I got so busy and it got away from me! It will be really interesting to see if I wear them all again in the future (assuming we have another baby! ha!). And yay for not having anything bad!!

  3. This actually looks like a really great month for maternity purchases! Even if you didn't own or purchase another single thing, you could mix and match what you have here into a handful of outfits. I kind of love the red scarf as well.

  4. Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to start from scratch. I have seriously considered doing that with my closet, but I feel like it would be so wasteful. With pregnancy, it's exactly like you get the chance to start over and start off with good choices.
