July Budget

So I was doing pretty good at not spending too much this month, and then the Nordstrom Anniversary sale happened.  Whoops.  I was going to just buy a job interview outfit, and now I own some killer ankle boots instead.  Although the other pieces I bought were filling some holes in my wardrobe (except for the pineapple shorts, I don't think anyone has a pineapple shorts hole), since I somehow didn't own a white button down and my jean jacket no longer fit.  Oh well, I may not have come in way under budget, but at least I'm under $300!

Here's the damage for July:

Ann Taylor Pencil Skirt - originally $69.00, on sale $24.94
JCrew Factory Shorts - originally $54.50, on sale $27.00
JCrew Factory Jacket - originally $85.00, on sale $34.00
Sam Edelman Boots - originally $159.95, on sale $99.90
Ann Taylor Shirt - originally $69.50, on sale $39.50

Not Pictured:  
JCrew Factory Tee - originally $36.50, on sale & used gift card $22.97
JCrew Factory Plaid Button Down - originally $64.50, on sale $25.50

Total Spent: $273.81
Total Saved: $265.14

I'm not shopping for anything specific in August, but I assume fall clothes are going to be pretty hard to resist so we'll see how it goes.

How did you do for July?

  1. those boots were such a good buy. I can't wait to see you style them!

  2. I'm smitten with those booties and your denim jacket! What great finds this month!

  3. I've managed to avoid the nordstrom anniversary sale altogether...but I've definitely done damage elsewhere lolll! I think you definitely bought some staple pieces that you'll wear often...and the pineapple could you pass up on those;)! Rita @

  4. I avoided the Nordstrom sale - well actually I bought something then returned it! I managed to be under mine!
