September Budget

August typically feels like a pretty long month, and in contrast September always feels like it's gone in an instant. I think it partly has to do with how drastically the days become shorter - sunset at 6:30 p.m. - ugh!

I was trying not to do too much shopping this month, and was really, really good up until this past week when I went a little crazy at Banana Republic. But I had credit card rewards, so I rationalized it was mostly guilt free shopping. Though the floral shirtdress hasn't arrived yet, so it may or may not be sticking around. I included it because of symmetry, haha.

The items from Loft I haven't received yet either, but they are going to be part of a sponsored post.

Hope you have a lovely weekend and your October gets off to a good start!

  1. It truly amazes me seeing your budget every month and just how many pieces you manage to get virtually for free thanks to rewards points, something I clearly don't take nearly enough advantage of. I love the lace sheath dress and that floral dress just might be stunning in person - I admit that it has me intrigued. Either way, this month has flown by. I can't believe it will be October on Sunday!

  2. Woohoo for my floral camisole! Its become one of my favorite pieces over the past couple years, but when I first got it I thought it was too revealing, hah. So many great dresses too! Love the striped one

  3. I cannot wait to see that floral dress in action - that's a stunning piece (and what a great deal)!

  4. I'm telling you this is probably your best month ! The purchases are great and also the investment.
    The dresses, earrings, a really fabulous selection.

  5. So many great purchases! LOVE that scalloped shirt dress! I am having a really hard time not buying EVERYTHING right now!


  6. You always manage to buy a lot without spending a lot! It's an incredible skill! :) I've had months like that too, where I'm not buying alot until right near the end when there's a sale or discount that means I buy more than I expected, haha!

    I love love love that floral shirt dress, I hope it's perfect when it arrives as it looks beautiful and is easily my favourite piece of everything you bought :)

    Hope you are having a really good weekend!
