July Budget

Still working on my mindful, offline purchases. These are about half and half. When I spotted the pink linen pants at Loft on sale, I couldn't resist, as I love my green ones so much! I'm wondering if they will be as versatile as the green?

The fringe tote caught my eye in J.Crew, and while it was pricey, I knew I had a gift card. Naturally I decided to wait a week and come back to see if it was still there, which is was, so I got it. Then it went on sale which frustrated me as J.Crew only allows seven days for price adjustments, but oh well, I do love the bag.

The jumpsuit is an adventurous purchase, and is comically long on me and I need to hem it. I hope it looks as good in reality as I am imagining it!

Kayu Pinata Tote, $138 at J.Crew ($38 after gift card)
White Short Sleeve Button Down, $18 at Old Navy (free after rewards)
White off the Shoulder Cami, $12 at Old Navy (free after rewards)
Striped Midi Dress, $45 at Loft
Pink Linen Pants, $28 at Lou & Grey
Heiress Jumpsuit, $70 at Free People


  1. I would have bought the jumpsuit too !! Its so different to any I have seen.

  2. The extra markdowns at J. Crew really are enough to drive a sane person crazy - it's impossible to know when the best time is to buy something! But you still did well on the fringe tote, I think. And I absolutely love the striped dress from Loft, such a fun piece. I can't wait to see how you style it.

  3. I second that - I can't wait to see how the jumpsuit comes out looking!
