There's so much that goes into creating a well-rounded closet that I could literally fill up a book (<-- I'm working on one of those right now). I thought I'd at least show you how I used my budget this month and how I made decisions on what to buy. This post does come with one disclaimer though: I am quite finicky, so it's possible that I might return something! ;-) For now, here is what February looks like for me:
Overall: I have spring fever and color was on my mind! I also allocated a big chunk of my budget to bottoms. I never feel like I have enough, so that's an area of my closet I wanted to work on.
Top Row: It's rare to see pencil skirts in unique colors like these, so I immediately jumped at the chance to buy these two. Bottoms were also a high priority this month, which is why I spent almost half my budget on these two items alone.
Middle Row: Accessories are my weakness. I have plenty of belts and jewelry but I just couldn't pass up these unique, colorful extras and their amazing prices!
Bottom Row: A mixture of tops for many occasions. The cardigan and silky shirts will work for professional and casual situations alike, and the neon pink t-shirt is perfect for summer errands.
