shopping list

I've got to get more focused when shopping, and just like when at the grocery store, having a list helps. I'm working towards building a closet of remixable pieces in neutrals, pinks/corals, and blues. For 2016, I'm working with a $500 quarterly budget, or $2000 for the year. To see what I buy and when, check out my monthly budget recap posts
