{recap} Wardrobe Update - October

October is my birthday month and normally I allow myself a clothing splurge. I refrained this year since I've had a few slow work months and saving for vacations and retirement seemed to be more important. I did buy a couple of tops on my Disney trip but those are more like souvenirs since I won't wear them in my day to day life, ha ha. (A 50th anniversary sweatshirt tee and a Remy's Ratatouille Adventure annual passholder exclusive tee)

I also have another sponsored post for Aurate coming next week so I was able to get a couple rings. I always love working with them, they carry such classic pieces.

  1. I usually go overboard in my birthday month so I'm very impressed you were so restrained and didn't buy anything this month! I ended up going over my 2020 fashion spend this month, and it's only October! So I'll need to be really good for the last few months of the year - and get my post up soon!

    Hope that you are having a wonderful weekend :) We had a beach day yesterday!
