Black Skinnies (again) and an April recap

I just can't get enough of these black skinnies! I've worn them to work almost every Friday this month. They fit me perfectly in the waist and legs. That's a really hard thing for me to find in a pair of pants. Most of the pants I have in my closet start to fall down a bit as the day wears on, even if I wear a belt!

Plaid Tank: ? it's really old
Cardigan: ? again, really old
Black skinnies: Old Navy
Peep toe flats: Payless, old

I can't believe April is already over. I did not do a very good job of sticking to the $100 budget I set for myself this month. In fact, at $174 spent, I didn't even come close to sticking to budget! Reasons for going over? BOGO, and coupons that were set to expire before the end of the month. 
As a result of my over spending, I'm going to set a very small budget for myself for the month of May ($50). It should be easy for me to stick to it, since it's my birthday month:)


  1. I need to set a budget. I really try not to spend a lot but I get tempted often. Especially with sales!

  2. i did not do well on my budget for april either, much less any month this year. i am kind of upset with myself, but i have a new month to set things straight!

  3. I think I have these same skinnies, are yours super soft? (And if so, aren't these like the best skinnies ever?! They fit so well, it's nice not having to keep hauling your pants back on up!) These look really great on you, I love them with the plaid shirt. And yikes, I know, I didn't do so well staying on my budget either! :)

  4. Love those black skinnies - and those sandals are SO cute! Good luck sticking to your budget this month - it can be tough :)
