I bought some new sneakers for going on walks this Summer and for our Disney trip in September. We'll (hopefully) be doing the Wild Africa Trek safari at Animal Kingdom so I'll need some good sneakers for that. We were supposed to do it in May 2020 but Covid ruined that whole trip. Now we'll be doing it for our anniversary, assuming I can get us 2 spots when the 60 day window for booking opens up in July! But back to the shoes - I had a $30 off $49 coupon AND my yearly $10 reward so that brought them to $26, can't beat that!

Can't believe we're already 3 months in to 2022. This month was another light shopping month - no clothes purchased. There's nothing I really need at the moment since we haven't really been out much in the past 2 years. Many of my old clothes now feel extra new again because I haven't worn them in quite a while. It's nice to be able to "shop my closet" as the cool kids are saying, ha ha. But I've always shopped my closet in the past (many of my clothes are 10+ years old.) It is still nice to have the occasional new piece to sprinkle in, but not much has caught my eye these days.

Another light fashion spend month. But I did splurge on a new Kitchenaid mixer. I’ve been using my Mom’s old KitchenAid since we moved into our house in 2018. I love it, and it was great, but it's gray. I’ve always dreamed of having a super fun color, preferably purple, so I was on the hunt for the Boysenberry, Plumberry or Bordeaux. They were never in stock or $800+ on eBay. I finally gave up and ordered a pretty Blue Velvet from Bed Bath and Beyond because I had a 30% off coupon. Ordered on Feb 1 with a delivery of Feb 3-4 - SOLD! We got to Feb 11th and it still hadn’t shipped. It must have been fate because on the 10th KitchenAid announced their color of the year - BEETROOT! The purple I'd been searching for. So I bought it, even though I had to pay full price. To me it was worth the extra cost over 10+ years to have the color I really really want.


I've been wanting to get another sweater from mīere the label, a company founded by my friend Jamie, for a while. The brand is mainly children's clothes but she has a few matching pieces for women. She recently offered some samples/returns for lower than retail. I used that as an excuse to purchase. Since she's in Australia, I have to take the more expensive shipping fees into account. The lower price ($45AUD) + shipping made the sweater the sale price (non-samples were on sale for $70 from $115.) I originally had 3 items in my cart, but the shipping would have been $99AUD ($71USD) which basically doubled the cost of my order. I limited myself to one since I'm trying to behave with purchases. I've still got my eyes on this lounge set in charcoal.

Welcome to the first wardrobe update of 2022, wow that snuck up quick! No purchases so far this year but I did get a few gifted items from my longtime featured brand Aurate. I'm hopeful that I will be very thoughtful with my spending this year and only add items that I love. Even last year I fell victim to sales and buying things I will hardly wear. 

 

I will most likely be doing a closet clean out soon to weed out those items and anything else I don't see myself wearing in the future. I'm sure it will be very hard because some items I don't wear have sentimental value. Those pieces may stay for a little longer until I can let go.

It's my last wardrobe update of 2021. This year seems to have flown by now that we're at the end but I know there were some months that seemed to drag on forever. Another weird year done, hopefully next year is better.

 

As expected, this year was very light on clothing purchases. Having nowhere to go really helps to curb my spending. I do miss having new things in my closet but since I'm not going many places aside from visiting family it doesn't make much sense.

I successfully made it through Black Friday/Cyber Monday/Sale weekend with no purchases making November a no spend month! I did buy a few non-clothing items but nothing too crazy. A L'or de Seraphine candle (sold out sadly) from Neiman Marcus when I was buying a Christmas surprise for the family and I finally splurged on an Always Pan during their $99 sale. It came just before Thanksgiving so I haven't used it yet, maybe tonight!

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.

I finished this post on Monday, so if I've made clothing purchases at Disney they won't appear here until next month! My adventure continues through next week so make sure to follow me on Instagram for Magic Kingdom 50th Anniversary fun!


I was doing pretty well this year and not making too many purchases. But at the beginning of the month Old Navy had a big sale on their clearance items so I stocked up on some things for Christian and of course had to take a "quick look" for myself and ended up with a few things. But I only spent $23 and got 5 pieces! Unfortunately I don't think I'll be ordering from Old Navy online again. Had some issues and ended up with 2 of the exact same order so I had to go through the hassle of returning a whole order. UGH!

Can you believe it's already September tomorrow? CRAZY!  This month was another well behaved month thanks to June being a slow work month. I budget based on what I make 2 months ahead. So what I make in June I use in August. Everything has a job so it's easy for me to stay on target with my budgets.

 

However, I do have a sponsored post with Aurate coming up next month so I was able to choose some items. I bought my Mom some earrings and then one earring for myself (as well as a pair that I got for free with the order.) So far my Mom's piece is the only thing that has arrived, the two for me will arrive mid-September.


I also made a pre-vacation purchase for Disney using some blog money. I randomly saw a cute pair of vintage-style Disney shorts on Instagram and decided to do my own search and found these adorable Disneyland mickey embroidered pocket shorts. I ended up with 2 pairs because I originally bought a size 12 brand new with tags and they were too big so I had to size down to a used 10. Unfortunate the new ones didn't work, but at least I still got a pair! If you are interested in a pair I am normally a 2/4 or 26/27 in denim and bought the size 10.

No new purchases this month, which should be of no surprise if you saw last week's post. But, in case you missed it, I got a new car after 11 years! This is also my first time having a car payment because I got my first car very cheap right out of college. Crazy stuff! Ha ha. So clothes are definitely on the back burner these days, although I do still have advertising money and Shopbop gift cards for moments when I need a pick-me-up!

Well, I did it. I got my Prada Cahier bag! Well....almost. Read the story here! Since the bag money came out of a savings account I've been adding to for a few years I'm not counting it in my main 2021 spending total, but I did add a line at the bottom of the post including it in my yearly spending.


I also finally got Teva sandals after spending a couple months mulling it over. I went with a crazy printed pair since they'll be more fun for beach trips, camping and rainy Disney days! I also bought a new bathing suit from Target for a beach trip (that ended up being canceled.)

This month I had the pleasure of preparing for another sponsored post with Aurate (see the post next week!) I opted for something over my gifted amount and paid the difference. Boy was it worth it! I chose this topaz ring to match a vintage necklace my grandmother gave me years ago that I wear quite frequently. The shape is different but it has the same 3 diamond pattern on the sides, how weird is that? Meant to be!


In other news - we're getting our second dose of the vaccine this morning! YAY! So excited to finally be able to go back into the grocery store (Trader Joe's, here I come!!) and get a haircut, ha ha.  Although I'm sure we'll still be taking advantage of all the curbside pickups other stores offer.

Well, I did it. I didn't buy clothes all month! I obviously still have no need for anything new as I've barely had a chance to wear all the new things I bought last year. Can't wait for this Summer when we'll be able to get out a liiiiittle bit more.

 

Connecticut is opening up vaccine availability to all those over 16 tomorrow so Christian and I will be trying to get our appointments ASAP. Once we do, the first thing on the agenda (besides still wearing masks in public/around non-vaccinated folk) is haircuts! Christian hasn't gotten a cut since September 2020 and he is getting so annoyed with his long hair, ha ha. It's been since August 2019 for me, I got a cut right before our honeymoon. Normally get my haircut once a year because I'm lazy; I let it grow long and then chop it off and the cycle continues. 


Then we'll plan to visit Christian's Mom. We haven't seen her since January 2019 - UGH!!! Not sure if we'll drive or brave a flight...but it's an 18 hour drive, yikes! Other than that we'll probably still keep to ourselves at home with occasional visits to Grandma's and my parents. Although I will probably venture in to Home Goods and Trader Joe's because I haven't been since last March....SHEESH! We do have a camping trip planned that we re-booked from last year, so hopefully that can go ahead as scheduled!

I can never seem to make it a whole month without buying something! This month it was a pair of jeans. They're not necessarily a "new" item because it is an exact replacement of a pair I currently own. I originally bought these Le Skinny de Jeanne jeans in April 2015 from Shopbop and they have been worn soooooo many times. When I bought them they were a major splurge at $141 (retail $189) but proved to be a worthy purchase. (According to my Wardrobe Update that month I used $100 in a gift card so they were $40) This time I scored them for $30!


My Mom has already had to patch my current pair once because a seam started tearing at the back. FRAME still makes this same style but I really love the wash I bought and wanted the exact same color to replace my current pair. I think I've been searching for over a year. There was a false alarm at the end of last year where I bought a pair and the seller never sent them - UGH! This time I was successful and the pair looks like it has never been worn! I'll obviously keep my current pair because they have wear left, but I feel better knowing I have a pair waiting in the wings.

A new year, a fresh wardrobe update. I did pretty well last year thanks to a bunch of Shopbop gift cards through my partnership with them from the end of 2019 and the first couple months of 2020. That partnership was paused because of the virus and I don't know if/when it will come back but I do still have some gift cards to spend! Hopefully that means I won't be spending as much of my "real" money.

 

I wasn't planning on making any purchases this month but my blog friend of over 10 years, Jamie-Lee of Mademoiselle, finally launched her clothing line - mīere the label! It's a children's line but she also made a few sweaters for mom's to match their little ones! Obviously I had to buy one of the women's sweaters to 1. Support a friend and 2. Because they're going to be a perfect basic!

 

It won't arrive until next month, but I'll be sure to do a post to let you all know what I think! But with Jamie behind it I know it will be perfect. She is obsessed with finding perfect basics so I have no doubt in her ability to create her own line.

 

Then the next day I got an eBay notification that a pair of mules I've been following for over a year were discounted heavily down to $26 so I pounced (pun intended) on those bad boys! They're - new in box! - half tiger print and half cheetah print mules by Splendid. I had them on my Shopbop wishlist for a long time but they never got cheap enough for me to buy them (once they did my size was sold out.) 

 

THE (modified) RULES

  1. Be mindful of purchases
