I'm happy to be participating in the Budgeting Bloggers series again this month! Since I no longer have a "normal" 9 to 5 job and mostly work from home, I get to have more fun with my wardrobe.
- Women's V-Neck Camis • Old Navy • $3.50 x 4 = $12 (pink, peach, black, white)

TOTAL SPENT = $198
I no longer have the need to spend hundreds of dollars on work clothes, so instead I focused on fun clothes. I still need a few professional pieces for when I meet with clients or attend business functions, but luckily I have enough left over from winter (and it is versatile enough) that I can wear it year round.Unfortunately, I also didn't set a budget this month. I really didn't want to do any shopping this season, but I needed some summer dresses, t-shirts, shorts, etc, since I don't fit in my things from last year. I decided that as long as I'm shopping at inexpensive stores, like Target, Old Navy and Kohls, then I would be okay. As you can see below I wound up spending about $200 (including tailoring), which is not crazy, but it's more than I thought I had.
Going forward, I'm setting a budget of $100 - $150 a month for all clothing/ alterations!
What about you? How much do you spend on clothes?
