It's a January Clothing Budget Kind of Day

As a goal in 2013, I'm tracking (and hopefully reducing) my shopping budget by participating in Franish's Budgeting Bloggers Series. This is my first time tracking my shopping purchases in this way, so let's see how I did.

Here's what I bought in January:
Zara Chunky Scarf: $19
Uniqlo Ultra-Light Down Coat (in black): $69

Target Blouse: $16 in-store

J. Crew Factory Blouse: $17.50
Zara Olive Green Skinny Jeans: $20 in-store

Not Pictured:
J. Crew Factory Merino Charlie Pullover in Green (color no longer available): $25
Banana Republic Outlet gold tweed pencil skirt (similar): $23
Zara Aztec-Print Tee: $14

Grand Total: $203.50
I was doing really great in January until I went to NYC. In NYC I spent $122 of my total, but since we don't have a Zara or Uniqlo at home, I simply couldn't avoid it. I also feel like I failed a bit by not getting anything on Part 1 of my 2013 Wish List. Speaking of, I should probably post Part 2, since I did get two things off of that list: olive skinnies and patterned blouses. 

Head on over to Franziska's blog to check out the other budgeting bloggers! (And to check out her fashion, because I promise, she's awesome.)
