I really hoped March would be a quiet month for shopping. I didn't need anything, really. I have everything I need for Europe (you know I've planned what I'm packing, don't be cray) and I had no real 'holes' in my closet that needed filling.
But then, I started thinking more about that capsule wardrobe. What I actually want is a wardrobe full of things I love and actually wear. Mainly, I need to organise my work wardrobe, and do some sort of capsule-ish thing there. Like, year long. No pressure. To do that, I need at least 20 tops I really like and will wear. So, this month I made a huge dent in that, and I am pretty much done for work clothes now.

I didn't buy anything in DC (unheard of for me!) but when I got back..

And then of course, stitch fix happened. I had a $25 credit, but still. It took my expenditure for the month way over. Then I went to goodwill, and TJ Maxx for some new workout clothes. Then I bought a new yoga mat (using swagbucks though) and some shoes from Target. I'm so far over the 'budget' I can't even see it any more.
Here's to April! It needs to be a slow month for shopping. Really, really. No stitch fix, no online shopping, no goodwill, no nothing.
