June Budget

I do feel as though I tried really hard to not shop online this month, but only two of these purchases were made at a brick and mortar store. I'd been eyeing those raffia hoop earrings for a while and could not in any way justify their $60 price tag. Then then went on sale last weekend for $16, so I called my local store, they had one pair left!

I also had been wanting the white Gap jeans for a while, but they were full price online, and when I went into the store to try them on, they'd been marked down to $28. (You can now grab them on the website for $33 with the code JULY for 40% off). The bodysuit, also from Gap, I'm still on the fence about. I feel like when paired with anything that isn't high waisted it is not super flattering, and therefore I'm not sure worth keeping?

The raffia bag was my indulgence from blog revenue, of which there isn't much of, but I can never seem to let it stay in my paypal account for long! I'm happy I got it though an Etsy seller, as there are so many of those bags going around now, I liked the personal touch - I got to customize my pattern, clasp, and lining.

I also found myself with a $20 credit to Swap.com (thanks to whoever made a purchase through my referral), so I picked up a few things I hope will work out, and if they don't, I only spent $11 including shipping on all three.

  1. I've been sitting here congratulating myself because I made it to June 30th and only bought one thing - but as I am engaged in that self-congratulation, I have about three online shopping windows up browsing different items, so let's just say you're not alone. That said, it sounds like you got some exceptionally good deals this month, and I do love those earrings!

  2. I would have probably bought everything you listed too !
    In my case, well... I did a lot of thrifting and did pick up one or two things for department stores.
    As usual I did not spend much although I really should have not spend anything as I don¡t need any more.

  3. I love that everything pretty much has a theme here! I kind of want to see if you could do an entire week of just these items as a capsule!

  4. so many great choices! and thanks so much for sharing the etsy link to the basket bag. they are adorable!


  5. I think you did really well with your purchases this month! Especially as most of it was on sale or you had credit! That printed dress is beautiful, looking forward to seeing how you wear it!

    Hope you are having a wonderful start to the weekend!
