What I Bought in September


Did you have a good weekend? I swapped out my summer clothes for my fall and winter and ended up with another pile for Goodwill. I want to hold on to summer as long as I can, and I’m hoping we’ll still have a warm day here and there, but I love fall fashion and am looking forward to cozy sweaters and booties. A closet inventory was on the to-do list but didn’t happen and will have to wait until October. And, since it’s the end of the month, it’s time to share my September purchases. My budget is $75/month, and while I’ve been spending quite a lot of time online looking at things I want to buy, I haven’t pulled the trigger on much.


September Purchases

sorel cate booties


Are you like me and dress up to go to the grocery store, the mailbox, or just because? When I saw this printed floral dress at Target, I knew it would be perfect for fall and something I would wear often. I styled it with a leather jacket and booties for dinner out with friends a few weeks ago and dressed it down with my Adidas sneakers for running errands. I wore the mixed print maxi dress as a duster with shorts but haven’t worn it as a dress yet.

These Sorel booties are probably my favorite purchase of the entire year. I found them while we were in Newport over Labor Day weekend, and they were a steal at $59.50, marked down from $170.

1 – Flex Tee c/o Peach

2 – Sorel Bootie $59.50

3 – Camo Leggings c/o Peach

4 – Tunic Sweater c/o Mint Julep

5 – Printed Floral Dress $28.25

6 – Colorblock Sweater c/o Mint Julep

7 – Thumbhole Top c/o Peach

8 – White Eagle Booties c/o Jambu

9 – Be Kind Sweater c/o Wooden Ships

10 – Mixed Print Maxi Dress c/o Mint Julep

11 – Bucket Bag c/o Teddy Blake

12 – Star & Moon Sweater c/o Wooden Ships

Total: $87.75 

I went over budget again this month, but I ended up returning the Barefoot Dreams Cardigan that I bought in August. It was the exact color as my old one and didn’t make any sense to have a duplicate. So, $68.90 went back into my budget!

What’s on your October wishlist?
