{recap} Wardrobe Update - April

Well, I did it. I misbehaved this month and spent way over my monthly budget (I lowered it to $100 this year) to buy a pair of Ancient Greek Sandals I've wanted ever since they were posted on their Instagram.  I was able to get them for 15% off thanks to signing up for Moda Operandi's newsletter, but they were still pricey.  But as it is my favorite brand I think it's okay to splurge once a year on a new pair, right? I'm up to 6 pairs now.

I was also bad and ordered a really cute romper from Gilt. In my defense, it had been in my cart for weeks and I only ordered it after getting a 30% off coupon! So that's kind of good...right?

Last night I went to a Spring shopping event at Clinton Crossing and picked up a couple pieces because I can't resist a good deal! Luckily my mom bought one of them for me because she's awesome! So technically I only bought one thing.

  5. You are up to six pairs? I can only think of three too... I don't think you were as bad as me this month at least. Love the romper too, it's adorable.

  6. It's coming up to warmer weather for you so I think a playsuit and sandals are very useful and smart purchases. Plus with the extra % off it was a good time to buy! :)
