Well, that looks bad doesn’t it? Let’s focus on the money saved instead (sorry, mom). At least I added work appropriate pieces, so I don’t feel too bad.

As I mentioned in one of my last outfit posts, the Hue tights are holding up really well and I want more (maybe a fleece pair? I always end up hating the fit on those). My coworker convinced me to buy the button-down during a Christmas sale at Express, and I’m so glad I listened to her (she has four of her own!). I wear it to work at least once a week, and it’s also works for nights and weekends too.

The legging pants though. Oh man. I’m still not sure if I’m keeping them! They’re so comfy and the fabric is quality, but they’re just not flattering on me. They look spectacular on Danielle but I just can’t make them work. Sounds like I should return them, huh? The Limited is constantly sold out of them, so I can’t try a different size either. We will see I guess!

I’m really making an effort to have January’s budget by the end of the actual month. I’m also thinking of switching up my parameters for this budgeting project of mine, so look out for that!
