My goal was to purchase 30 or less pieces for the year. I included clothing, gear and accessories.

I am now at 34 so have gone over.

October additions
- new ASICS running shoes due to wear
- beach cover/ kaftan
- striped tee
- floral blouse
- sunglasses

And I have a dress on order from my friend too.

The kaftan and running shoes were planned purchases to fill gaps. The tee is a great completer - and with summer approaching will be well worn. The glasses I purchased honestly by mistake but my sisters and I liked them so much I kept them. The floral blouse is an almost wildcard - but very pretty for work - made by my friend. And she is also making me a long midi dress.

So I hope to close the wallet til 2020 now. I am helping at the Dress for Success Sale which may be tempting.

My numbers sit at about 130 including gear, bags, shoes and clothes. My retirements for the year are 28.

Whilst I have missed my target I am happy my purchases are well thought out, useful and fun. The wildcard have mostly been second hand.
