I'll break down my purchases in sections. Here is what I got that I have already worn several times:
Old Navy Stripe Infinity Scarf -- $8.30
Target Mossimo Mid Rise Jean Short (here) -- $12.70
I have no problem finding things I like for my weekend wear. It's the stuff for work that is more difficult. These shorts are great because they are more of a jean short so you don't see through them like some other white shorts. They fit well and I like the length (3 1/2').
I really like but haven't worn yet:
Old Navy Pleated Wide Leg Trousers (Navy) here -- $22.95
Kohl's Apt. 9 Printed Faux Wrap Dress -- $16.47
I like both of these things and they both fit well. I haven't figured out what I'm going to wear with the pants yet. I will have to wear a sweater or jacket with the dress if I wear it to work since it is so cold in the office.
What I might return:
H&M Striped Henley -- $12.80
I like it but I don't need another casual knit top... however this one is a bit different with the lace along the neckline...I love a navy stripe...I thought this might look good with my new chambray wide legs...but I don't know about the cap sleeves...I just can't decide!!
What I've ordered but haven't received:
eShakti Stretch Jersey Twill Wideleg -- free with credit
eShakti Draped Cotton Knit Top -- $17.40 after rest of credit
Under Armour Printed Scoop Neck -- 33.99
Under Armour Fly-By-Night Long Sleeve -- 29.99
I am hoping these pants from eShakti will replace the Old Navy black pants that I wear all the time despite them not fitting well. We will see. I'm hoping the navy top goes with a navy printed midi skirt I've had in the closet forever but never wear because I don't know what to wear with it.
I don't usually include workout wear in my budget, but since these may overlap into weekend wear, I thought I would include them.
Soma Nightgown -- $24.60
I've worn this a lot already. I needed some new PJs.
$179.20 total spent - I'm still under my $200 budget but not happy about bringing so much back into my closet and not being absolutely sure about each piece. I don't want to overfill it again with stuff I won't wear. I need to continue to be thoughtful about my purchases.
