Happy Friday Eve! I don’t know about you but this week has been dragging and I’m ready for the weekend! I’ve been on a non-official shopping ban since the holidays. When I shop, my rule is that whatever I buy has to go with multiple pieces in my closet. I really haven’t seen anything that I needed or had to have until now. With the arrival of spring, I was excited to add a few key pieces to my wardrobe. Here’s what I got!

Spring Purchases

Anthropologie Ferrier Tee $17.99

Anthropologie Pintuck Tunic $23.99

Old Navy Peplum Cami $1.04

Old Navy Ombre Gauze Scarf $3.49

Old Navy Pardon My French Sweatshirt $4.14

Tassel Scarf (local boutique) $12.00

If Chic Moto Jacket $16.95

Sperry Sneakers $44.95

Old Navy Pixie Pants $9.24

Old Navy Striped Dress $10.59

Total Spent: $144.38

Budget: $50/month

Carryover January – April $200

Under budget by $55.62!

My best find was the moto jacket from If Chic. I had collected the full $180 in coins that month and was able to score the jacket for a few dollars plus shipping. Sadly, they no longer offer the opportunity to collect coins to use towards your purchase, but it was great while it lasted! Old Navy continues to step it up and I got some really cute pieces at great prices thanks to my rewards. Most of the items are still available and if they’re sold out I found similar items you can shop below.

What pieces are you adding to your closet for spring?
