To three different art museums: The Art Institute of Chicago (easy one since we're members and eat lunch there at least once a week), The MCA (best place to see what artsy people's children look like), and The Broad Museum in East Lansing (since we were nearby to go to the movies).
A whole lot of Peaky Blinders on Netflix. And apparently trying on hats and talking in terrible Irish accents as a result.
Presents. (Obviously.) And a few things for me along the way:
A new batch of necklaces from Forever21 (including this drop-chain choker). Even though I've cut way back on my cheap shopping this year, I am still terrible at losing/breaking jewelry, so it's best to keep my purchases on the cheap side. Total: $45.
Calf-hair ankle boots from Gap. These are a replacement for my black short boots (seen in this old post) that are not looking so good anymore. $58.
Printed velour dress from Zara. It looks like your grandma's couch. And that couch is awesome. $35.
Purple coated "Verdugo" jeans by Paige Premium Denim (similar, but way brighter purple). Somehow I chose shiny purple jeans over gray ones. Go figure. $89.
December total: $227.
and get nosy with a bunch of other blogger's budgets over hurrrr.
