It all started because of this cardigan. My sister told me that they were marked down to $10 in stores, and there was an additional 40% off sale. I also had an email coupon that gave me $10 off if I reserved something online, so I was like "Hey, free cardigan!" This is a trick, you guys. Retailers always trick me. I tried on so many things, but only came home with 3: this dress, this shirt, and these shorts. If you are wondering about the cardigan, they didn't actually have my size in navy, and I tried on a different color and hated the fit. Way too slouchy. But they still gave me the $10 off!
I tried on this dress in navy, this dress in white/navy, this dress, and this skirt. They were all just a tad too short. I would like to start a petition that larger sizes have a bit more length. Yes, there are tall women who wear size 2, and there are short women who wear size 14, but as a general rule, shouldn't a Large be longer than a Small?? Or am I just crazy? This dress and this dress are the same style, I think, but I tried on both because one was in a Tall size. The length was great, but unfortunately it had kind of a dropped waist and looked quite terrible on me. (Free advice - Drop waists are not a good style for ladies who carry their weight in the middle.)
So then I was at Target, and I've been thinking about buying these Cognac Sandals, but I was going to wait until July, since I was trying not to shop much in June. Then I decided that was silly, because I'm going to get them - it doesn't matter when I do it. Waiting was just running the risk that they'd be gone.
Anyway, here's the official list of what I bought:
Striped dress: $15 (originally $70) (worn here)
White shorts: $10 (originally $40)
Camo/Stripe shirt: $5 (originally $27)
White Tank: $5 (originally $30) (similar)
Cognac Sandals: $20 (not even on sale, I'm so ashamed!) (worn here)
Lucky B Boutique:
Necklace: used a giftcard (originally $24 - marked to $12) (worn here)
Total spent: $55 (originally $187)
I feel pretty good about this month. I got some replacement pieces, and a couple fun new things. Plus I only spent about half of my monthly budget, so I have $45 rolling over into July. I like to have a little extra buffer each month.
