Shopping for Spring Jackets on a Budget | Monthly Purchase

Hey Friends!

If you’ve been following along, you know that I’ve been living on a stipend during this first year of working as a resident teacher and in graduate school for Elementary Education. So stipend living = hard core budgeting living. 

Also, you may remember that last month I went through my closet and donated/got rid of a bunch of things I’ve had since middle school. If you’re interested in how to declutter you closet and curate your ideal wardrobe I’ll link them here! 

So what does this all mean? 

I have less clothes in my closet and I’m still living on a budget, so I need to find a way to purchase new quality pieces and stay within my budget. To do this, I have decided to commit to purchasing one high quality item a month in order to add to my adult wardrobe. Through this process I’m going to share the category of clothing i’m looking a purchasing, the options I’m looking at, and what I ultimately decide on. First up….

Spring Jackets 

When I think about spring I think about jackets. Which is unfortunate because at the moment I own like two… Haha, but I love the idea of being able to wear a few cute layers and not feeling like your about to start sweating, plus a jacket does something to make an outfit look complete.

Eventually I would love to own one of each type of jacket: moto, trench, utility, denim, rain, leather, etc. But for now, here are my favorite picks for spring jackets this season. If you could only choose one, which would you get?

Ultimately, I have decided on the Democracy Bell Sleeved Jacket. It such a versatile color, I’m obsessed with the bell sleeved look right now, and I can already imagine the outfits I can make with it!
