{recap} Wardrobe Update - February

  Tuesday, February 28, 2017 at 7:30 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:, 
I'm writing this post on Saturday the 25th, so hopefully nothing changes over the next 3 days. I've successfully gone the full month without buying any clothes or accessories!! I had done it a few months last year as well but that always included purchases made with advertising money or gift cards. This month it was absolutely nothing!

I'm currently saving up for a trip to Italy this May , so any money I don't spend on clothes is put away into my vacation Capital One 360 account.  I will attempt to behave in March as well but I am on the hunt for silver shoes for my cousin's wedding in April (I'm in the bridal party.) I also have a gift card to J Crew that's been burning a hole in my pocket for a while.

THE (modified) RULES
  1. Be mindful of purchases 
  2. Quality over quantity
  3. Basics are best

  4. A trip to Italy is very good motivation. And Oh yeah I forgot about that J.Crew gift card! We should plan a trip sometime in the not too distant future. Of course whenever we go places to try and spend our gift cards we never find anything though...Congrats on a month of no shopping!
