It's a Month Without Shopping Final Wrap Up Kind of Day

Well, guys, I made it! And it wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be. Sure, there were lots of things I could have purchased. Lots of things I wanted. See some of those items here and here

Of course, I didn't last long after the shopping ban without making a purchase. But that's only because I was up by the outlets an hour north of Seattle and that hardly ever happens. My purchases were small and calculated: a couple pieces of workout clothes, a camel cardigan (which I've been wanting for MONTHS), and a green version of this cardigan (also worn here, and a million times not photographed for the blog), which is my absolute favorite and I was so elated to find it in another color!

As a bit of reflection, I honestly didn't find the month without shopping that hard. I didn't break the rules, and I was really happy about it. I'm thinking that I'll make a big push this month to continue to cut back. 

I've purchased the couple of pieces at the outlets I've really been wanting and needing. I have a couple more items that I'm keeping my eye out for, but other than that, I'm not going to shop again this month. 

Come back later this week to see what's on that wish list and let me know what you think I should hold off on, and what should be purchased now!

AND, because this post would be awful without at least one picture, here's me right now (as a teaser for tomorrow's outfit post)!
