In my September Shopping Summary I mentioned I was going to cut back on shopping in October and focus on finding a navy blazer.


I’m not very good at this.

Now, to be honest, I’ve been searching high and low for a polka dot pencil skirt for months so that was a must-buy when I saw it on sale.  The black dress pants were to replace another pair (currently for sale on Poshmark.  Sign up with code HBAMM for an instant $5 credit!) that, while still functional, I felt were too flared for my current style.

The bubble necklace?  Another item that’s been on my wish list for months.  I still want a turquoise one, though, so that’s still on the wish list.  The wrap watch was similar in that I’ve had one on the list for several months.

But the lace navy cropped pants?  Yeah, not a necessity.  Still debating on whether or not to keep them.  They are super cute but I’m not sure if cropped pants are a good thing to spend money on right now since, you know, it’s going to be winter shortly.  Thoughts?
