April budget

Or... as I shall say, ouch. I went way over budget this month. New York really threw a wrench into my plans. I thought I was done.. and then there was C Wonder. And J Crew. And no sales tax on clothes if you spend under 110.
At least everything I got was on sale? :/

So yeah. I'll have to be really, really good in May. Although I do need a new swimsuit for the Mexico trip that may be the only thing that I allow myself for next month.

Linking up with Franish - how did you do this month?


  1. It seems like everyone spent more in April! It must be a good month for shopping. That chevron sweater is so pretty!

  2. Well, as someone who also blew their budget way out of the ballpark, I can say, "Welcome to the Club!" The chevron sweater looks great and so does that blazer!

  3. april was really bad for me too - these sales! and i was in the US, which is like "well since i'm here and i can't get these in canada, it doesn't count". ya. *joins laura's ouch club*

    i really like everything you got though! and they were on sale! hurray! :)

    1. thank you!
      and that's what I tried to tell DH - "but I was in NY!". and that didn't fly with him.

  4. haha I love how we can all commiserate. I think the pieces you got are going to be very versatile so as long as you do better next month I promise not to kick you out of budgeting bloggers. HA, just kidding! we all have those months :)

    1. I'm vowing to make this month better. Haha.

  5. Awesome purchases no matter what)))) Thanks for sharing such a nice post! Followed you with GFC and on Bloglovin', hope you can do same;)
    Have a happy time!

    Best wishes, Alexandra

  6. I've never heard of C Wonder, but it looks amazing! Bummer about going over budget, but purchasing things on trips is totally justifiable - your clothes can be your souvenirs, haha!

    1. C wonder would be my total downfall if I lived in NY. Lol.

  7. Such awesome finds! Love your blog! ;)

    1. Right? I mean... TB but not three times the price!

  22. Everything said made a great deal of sense. But,
    what about this? what if you typed a catchier title?

    I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your website, but suppose you added a title to maybe grab folk's
    attention? I mean "April budget" is kinda plain. You should look at
    Yahoo's home page and watch how they create news headlines to get people to open the links. You might add a related video or a pic or two to get readers interested about everything've written.
    In my opinion, it would make your blog a little bit more interesting.
