I’m extra excited this month for the $200 Clothing Budget series because we have more money to spend! Since this monthly series started in January we have accumulated a badass wardrobe for less than $200 a month. A lot of people think you have to spend a lot of money to look like a million bucks. Well, you don’t and I can show you how.
Last month, after purchasing four high-quality pieces for $114.42, we had $231.18 left. We are adding this amount to our May’s budget. So, for this month we have a total of $431.18 to spend, which means we can invest either in a pair of premium denim, high-end pumps, or a cashmere sweater.
Keep in mind that we are building a cohesive wardrobe that you can mix and match for seasons to come. For May, I was able to invest in a great pair of timeless pumps. Here’s what I found for less than $378.22
Suede Pumps ($298): If you love wearing heels then I highly recommend investing in a great pair of shoes that is stylish and timeless, but most importantly, comfortable. I own several pairs of high-heeled pumps that I can wear season after season.
Maxi Dress ($19.99): I love wearing maxi dresses for spring/summer. They are so versatile and stylish.
Bodysuit ($29.00): I’ve been wearing bodysuits non-stop. They are perfect to wear underneath see-through tops or dresses. These black and white staples are all you need!
Again, I didn’t spend every dime because I wanted to apply the balance of $52.96 to our June budget. Eventually, I’d like to invest in a statement bag, cashmere sweater, and/or premium denim.
Stay tuned for what is to come in June! Until then, have a great weekend, and I will see you on the blog next week.
