Cha Cha Vente drapey gray top and Old Navy floral top, Savers, $14.64
I've been really liking drapey tops lately, to the point where I'm not wearing my fitted t-shirts much. And gray is a color I've been feeling a surprising affinity for, as well. I usually try to steer clear of "cheap" brands like Old Navy at thrift stores, but the print and color of this top were irresistible.
Wood and gem bracelet from local boutique, $13.60
I own piles and piles of bracelets, so it's not as if I "needed" this one. However, since I do wear bracelets everyday, I thought this would be a fun addition to my daily wrist stack. I also liked the idea of supporting local artists and stores.
Total spent: $28.24
Remaining budget (out of $50): $21.76
Woo-hoo! Under budget for a second month! I've figured out the secret to staying under budget ... stay home. I've cut back on those impulse "let's pop into Ross/Macy's/Nordstrom Rack and see what they have" shopping trips on the weekends, in favor of a quiet Sunday at home doing some much-needed cleaning and organizing. I've also reduced my visits to thrift stores, since the temptation to snap up something cute because it won't be there the next time is hard for me to overcome.
