Budgeting Bloggers | October Purchases

Madewell is slowly taking over my closet and I don't mind it one bit. There's a Madewell literally down the street and I had a gift card so I decided to pick up some things I've had my eye on. The second I tried on this shirt, I knew I had to have it. It combines three of my favorite things: peplum, stripes, and button downs into one and is super versatile for my life. I could easily see myself wearing this with a blazer and pants for a presentation or conference, or with a pair of cutoff shorts during the summers. Also because it doesn't have a collar I feel like I could get away with wearing it like a cardigan over a tank top and still look put together. They also make this style shirt in buffalo checkwhite, and blue and trust me when I say that I need them all. 

I also picked up another bandana to add to my collection because I am obsessed. I love that there's different ways I can wear it, that it adds a little bit of interest to a simple outfit, and that it's this beautiful cabernet color which is very fall appropriate. It takes a lot of self restraint to not wear it everyday which I think is just a sign that I need more bandanas. 

I'm very happy with the purchases I've made this month! Has anyone else bought something exciting?
