I did not shop much this month, except to purchase a few t-shirts over the Presidents’ Day weekend. It’s been a busy month at work, and we’ve had a lot to do at home during the weekends.
I took advantage of the Presidents’ Day sale at J.Crew Factory, when everything on the site was 50% off. So I stocked up on two more of my favorite striped tees, as I already have a few pairs, and I get a lot of wear out of them.
- Navy-berry striped tee, J.Crew Factory: paid $24.99 (original price $49.50)
- White-navy striped tee, J.Crew Factory: paid $24.50 (original price $49.50)
I also purchased two message tees this month, a navy “Nevertheless She Persisted” tee which provided proceeds to ACLU, and a dark pink “Obstinate, Headstrong Girl!” Jane Austen-themed tee. (In Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, Lady Catherine de Bourgh seeks to impugn Lizzy Bennet’s character by calling her an “obstinate, headstrong girl.” The attempt, uh, doesn’t work.)
I purchased both tees through the Teespring.com website, totaling less than $50.
Interesting how the colors navy and berry were also a theme in what I bought this month!
- Nevertheless She Persisted tee, She Persisted, $25
- Obstinate, Headstrong Girl! tee, Classics Retreats, $22.99
Total spent for this month: $97.50
Total savings for this month: $49.50
Total spent for this year: $194.77
Total savings for this year: $64.50
For full disclosure, below is info about two sets of earrings I recently received as gifts.
First, my husband gifted me this pair of silver hammered earrings for our 20th anniversary. He actually bought them at the same time as the silver circle earrings he gifted me for Christmas — he just saved this pair of earrings for our anniversary! I’ve already worn these earrings, although they haven’t yet made it to the blog.
I have a few Lands’ End gift cards saved up, so we’ll see if I feel up to shopping this next month… stay tuned!
