Good news, bad news, and clothes too
Good News: I bought my plane ticket home for $224 and 10k miles. I actually bought two one-way tickets on different airlines to get the best price. Last week I budgeted $400, so this reduces the amount I need to save in my Travel Fund over the next six months to about $440/month. It also sounds like I’ll come in under budget for Vegas.
Bad News: It is the 23rd, and I’m pretty much out of money for the month if I want to stick with my earlier savings allocations. It’s not going to happen. And I’m thinking of using a 40% off coupon + $25 gift card at BR to get a classy jacket. But that would still be just over $100 out of pocket.
I’m also still obsessed with the idea long boyfriend cardigan, and willing to buy a cheaper brand because I’m not convinced that it is a style that will be popular in two years. Of course Old Navy is out of my size. I’m still liking the mustard color this fall, but black/grey/brown seems more practical for a layering piece.
I’m going to an outdoor concert next week, and I’m envisioning a long cardigan over a simple patterned graphic tee, skinny belt, skinny jeans, and tall boots. I own the bottom half of the outfit, but not the top.
But wait, didn’t I just say I was out of money for the month? I could just wear things I already own… Hmph.
Any outfit inspiration ideas? I’m still thinking boots (brown) and skinny jeans. I do own a longer cardigan with thick blue and white stripes (sort of like this one). I liked to wear it with yellow underneath last year. Hmmm… Then my only “need’ is a skinny belt, but that might not work with thick stripes anyway.
I’m putting way too much thought into this. (Avoiding homework. This is unacceptable!)
