After overspending on my wardrobe last year, I decided to track my spending. At the beginning of each month, I will review and reflect on the things I bought in the previous month. I hope the insights I gain from doing this will help me accomplish three goals: 1) avoid overspending, 2) shop smarter (quality not quantity), and 3) have a functional closet full of pieces I love to wear.

Today I am reviewing these Rothy’s loafers.

Rothy’s is a brand that makes sustainable shoes out of recycled water bottles. Yup, that’s right. Someone figured out how to breathe new life into old water bottles and it wasn’t me. Darn. View Post

Two weekends ago, Vadim and I spent a long weekend in Montreal with our friends.  We rented a car and turned it into a road trip up north. This was our first time driving there. It was also the first time I realized that New York is HUGE. We were basically in New York 99% of the time during our 6.5 hr drive. Who knew? I definitely didn’t.

Anyway, we rented an airbnb, ate at two restaurants notorious for hard to come by reservations, and made a bunch of memories that will probably make me laugh till I pee when I think about them in old age.

If you’re curious about how much we spent on our five day adventure, keep reading for all the details you didn’t ask for. View Post
