Monthly budget adventures (April 2016)

Time for a recap of my monthly budget adventures, and this past month was bottoms up! I bought a pair of red jeans and two pairs of neutral-colored trousers.

First up, I needed to replace my black trousers, so my first — and only — stop was The Limited. They are the BEST when it comes to suit pieces, with blazers, trousers, and skirts in different styles and sizes. They were also having a “Buy 1, Get 1 Half Off” sale at the beginning of the month, so I also picked up a navy pair of trousers in the same style and cut. I’ve already worn the navy trousers on the blog, as seen here.

I had a few dollars left over last month from my Macy’s gift card, so I swung by Macy’s after shopping at The Limited — and happened to score a pair of red jeans on sale. After my gift card, they cost me only $6! ๐Ÿ˜€

    I’ve seen a lot of people write about pants from The Limited, but I’ve never tried them myself. How do they hold up to machine washing? Do they shrink much?

    Love those red jeans by the way. Those will be a ton of fun to pair things with ๐Ÿ˜€
