As a quick refresher, this year I outlined my clothing budget to add closet basics to my wardrobe each month, putting together a list of items I need to help fill in the holes in my closet and assigning each item to a particular month of the year. I've capped each month's budget at $200 total. Here's what my calendar looks like:
Price: $28 (on sale from $50 )
Notes: I've been on the lookout for a comfortable, basic black pump for ages. I picked these up at Nordstrom Rack; they're nothing special, but they are the 'little black dress' of my shoe collection--they go with everything.
Notes: I know what you're thinking--gasp, this is how you tell us you're pregnant? No, no it's not. I have a secret for you: Target's maternity section has great hidden gems for us non-preggo's too. The only difference between this maternity tank and their similar non-maternity versions is that this one is a bit longer and softer--win/win for me :)
June Budget Total:
$41 for $63 worth of items
Over/under on June $200 budget: -$159
Over/under for the year since March: -$580.96 (under budget by two items)
Since I had room in the budget, I supplemented my closet a bit with warm-weather items.
