Style Budget Month 10: October

1. $79 at J. Crew: pj pants (not shown), painter tee, embroidered top
2. $38 J. Crew v neck cardigan (not shown) 
3. $54 J. Crew necklace and silk tick tock shirt
4. $ 57 J. Crew marled rib stitch cardigan
5. $25 Maritime dress from Anne on IG ( not shown) 
6. $17 Zara inspired blanket scarf from Mandy on IG (not shown) 
7. $30 J. Crew Schoolboy chambray blazer on eBay 

Spent $300

$146 on Poshmark 

Total Spent = $154 

I have only worn the bright orange top once so far and am a but unsure of the cut on my figure, but I feel like I will wear it more in the spring/summer next month and will be happy to save it for then. I bought the bottom chambray schoolboy blazer specifically with next spring in mind and look forward to wearing it then, even though I must note the strange fact that the fact that (it came from ebay) it smells a bit like patchouli or sandalwood oils.

I have worn the marled rib stitch cardigan three times already and as soon as my J.Crew rewards card shows up I plan to buy the black version provided it doesn't sell out.

I love the tick tock silk blouse SO much, but as it is a tunic length do find it a bit of a challenge to style. I also love how dainty the gold necklace is and it was only $15!   I didn't sell that much on Poshmark this month and I haven't blogged at all.  I can completely attribute both of these facts to work. Teaching all AP/IB classes all day long is exhausting and there are SO many essays to grade. Add an almost three year old to the mix and I am amazed that I can even type this, much less comprehend a complete sentence.

Happy Halloween all! I plan to dress as a leopard (with all my leopard accessories on at once), and Liv is going to be either Queen Elsa, Princess Anna, or Super Girl.

Linking up with Fran as always! 


  1. I love that top and I agree that you'll get a ton of wear out of it in the summer. Great find!

  2. I love that striped top! It is gorgeous!

    1. Sorry for the delay. Thank you and happy holidays!
