“What We Bought This Month” is a recurring series showing what three real, hard-working mamanistas spent their money on this month.
I have a bit of a holiday spending hangover. I showed a little bit of restraint this month in the clothing department, but it was only because I needed to re-up some cosmetic essentials. And then I promptly blew my budget on a splurge item. I did cash in some holiday gift cards and patiently waited for a sale-on-sale to purchase this amazing necklace at a great price.
Favorite Item Purchased: My Kendra Scott Harlow necklace, a long time lusted after purchase that I scored for $30 out of pocket!
It’s my birthday month and in true birthday girl fashion, I over-indulged. Like, a lot (#sorrynotsorry). I bought myself new skincare products, bought two new bras from ThirdLove (review coming!), splurged on some new dresses for the office and snagged a couple of casual tops for the weekend. Oh, and I also bought my first pair of snow boots for my trip to Maine. And a nylon backpack to carry Cate’s airplane entertainment. Happy birthday to me.
Number of Items Purchased: 15
Total Amount Spent: $500
This month has been filled with the search for a wedding dress, accessories and so much more after getting engaged New Year’s Eve. I did find an amazing wedding dress from Anthropologie’s BHLDN line, but no, I’m not going to reveal it here just yet! I’ve definitely focused on all things feminine and romantic with hearts, crystals and flowers reigning supreme!
Number of Items Purchased: 4 (1 Pair of Earrings, 1 Shirt, 1 Sweater, 1 Pair of Jeans)
Total Amount Spent: $68.49 (Thanks to a Stitch Fix credit and ShopTMM owner discount:))
Favorite Item Purchased: SugarFix by Bauble Bar earrings by far! After getting engaged NYE, I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect pair of earrings to wear on my wedding day and found these babies on a quick trip to Target. Just one more reason to call Target my happy place!
