For all the personal style crisis-ing I've been in lately, this outfit is pretty spot on. Stripes? Check. Fit and flare chambray? Check. Ankle strap block heels? Check. Vintage floral print silk scarf? Check. In fact, this outfit is an almost exact dupe of this one I wore in October.

When I was looking at ModCloth's new arrivals before my Galentine's event at their Austin store last month, I fell head over heels in love with this chambray pinafore dress. It was the very first item I grabbed when I walked into the store, and as soon as I put it on, I knew it was coming home with me. I have so many styling visions in mind for this one already (most of them involve stripes, surprise, surprise), so get ready to see it on the blog a lot in the coming months!

You may have noticed that I didn't post my February budget. It wasn't intentional; as I mentioned, February was a shit show and I honestly lost track of time at the end there! The short story is that my spending got a little out of control last month, but I did counter that with a bunch of Poshmark sales. In addition to losing track of time, I lost track of what I spent and earned. Let's assume I came out over budget, but not by too terribly much? Yeah, that sounds good.

I did want to share a few of the things I bought though! In addition to this chambray pinafore, the ModCloth Galentine's party resulted in this raincoat (which I'm OBSESSED with), these fancy pants (coming soon to the blog!), and this striped (duh) Peter Pan collared top in black and white.

A few more purchases I'm stoked on: these adorable pink Nikes that are the most comfy shoes ever and two cute swingy dresses (one and two) from Urban Outfitters. Thanks to my ongoing partnership with Shopbop, I also brought home the Madewell heels featured in this post and a Sonix portable charger.

What's your favorite thing you bought last month? Have you started shopping for spring yet? I wanna know what's on your wishlist!
