Anxiously awaiting










F21 shirt, Zara skirt, CR shoes, Prada clutch, Yurman bracelet, Tiff & co. ring

As most of you already know, I'm getting married next year. (I'm not wearing the ring because its being resized). In my attempt to save for the wedding, I decided to put myself on a reduced budget. July was supposed to be my first month, but needless to say I'm a failure at saving. Of that budget, I spent 75% in the first week and the remaining days later (and then some for the remainder of the month). And so, here we are in the first week of August and I just blew it again. Well, I guess there's always next month. Mean while, I'll be anxiously awaiting these in the mail!

  1. I have a habit of blowing money that I'm suppose to be saving too.

  4. I love the tie at the top of the blouse, so pretty! I was pretty surprised at how well I actually did reducing my shopping habits in the year before we got married...it's tough though, I know :)

  5. I love all of the soft tones in this outfit, especially that cute bow top.

    I'm in the same boat as you, trying to reduce my shopping expenses for a wedding. I've been doing okay, but I know how hard it is to resist temptation. All of this cute, fall stuff wants to come home with me. :)

  12. At least the outfit you're wearing, other than your accessories and shoes is budget worthy...

    I withdraw $100 every pay day and keep that in my wallet, and that's pretty much all I'll spend. I went kind of on a binge in May and June, but I'm back on my shopping ban for four months until we land in Hawaii and I need to buy more summer clothes. :P

    Good luck with the budget. With someone with your chic and high fashion tastes, I probably couldn't offer you advice to being on a shoe-string budget. LOL!

  14. You look so pretty in the "nude" color. The blouse is very romantic. I love it. Oh the sandals are so cute too. :) Living under a self inflicted shopping ban is never fun. Good luck on the rest of the months.

  15. Why do us women think it's socially acceptable to be gluttonous when it comes to clothes, bags, and other ultimately superficial things? The possible (very likely) reason for the inability to cut back on fashion spending is a lack of true shame for being so irresponsible with our money.
