Wardrobe Challenge Update | November

So I did pretty good... no great last month on my purchases. Seems like this challenge is helping after all.

I only purchased 4 items (returned 1 or it would have been 5) from my own funds. All other recent purchases were c/o fortunately I received items that are actual great staples for my closet this fall! For reference on my purchases from last month see my October wardrobe challenge post.  I checked the flared grey skirt of my list with one on sale at J.Crew. Score! I also checked off black ankle boots from my fall checklist with a pair of Lucky Brand booties, which were on sale (and are still on sale now!). My statement piece purchase last month was the LOFT animal print dress which was on sale as well.

Now that I'm doing this challenge, I catch myself making impulse purchases, such as this Gap cardigan. It was a great price but when I got home I was thinking, I don't even like crew neck cardigans, why did I get this? So I exchanged it for something I've actually been needing, a denim jacket. Awww, I'm so proud of myself. As for the plaid scarf that wasn't planned but I spent $6 so I think that made it ok.

I shifted around my wish list a bit and added this gush worthy coat from ASOS for my trip to NYC in January. See a complete list of my wishlist and purchases below.
