June Budget

Every month I post about my clothing budget. My budget per month is $300, which to some may seem like a lot and to others a little, but feels just right for me. You can read my thoughts on my 2015 budget here

Say what, it's time for another budget post?! I felt like I didn't do a ton of shopping this month, yet there are still somehow six new items in my closet (plus one I forgot about last month). My absolute favorite thing though? These suede wedges! They are so comfortable you guys, like, so comfortable that I threw them in my suitcase to Vegas never having worn them outside before. That's how much confidence I had in them. Plus they transition really easily between casual and dressy outfits, which makes them great to bring on a trip when you're trying to just bring three pairs of shoes instead of, you know, six for a four day trip (I mean, no, I definitely never did that).

So anyway, here's what I got in June:

J. Crew Factory Gray Tee - originally $22.50, on sale $11
J. Crew Factory White Necklace - originally $54.50, on sale $24.95
Charming Charlie Earrings - $8
J. Crew Factory Striped Tee - originally $45, on sale $22.50
Charming Charlie OTS Top - $25
Dolce Vita Wedges - originally $139.95, on sale $99.90

Not pictured (and also purchased last month - whoops!):
Michael Kors Short Trench (seen here, similar here)- originally $210, on sale $84.95

Total spent: $276.30
Total saved: $228.65

Since we're halfway through the year (what?!) here's a look back on what I've spent so far this year:
January - $158.37
February - $293.60
March - $246.74
April - $223.72
May - $409.49
June - $276.30

Total spent: $1,608.22
Average per month: $268.37

So I seem to be right on track for the year so far. I'm not home very much in July so we'll see how much I end up spending. There isn't anything I really need right now, except maybe another pair of jeans.

Did you budget in June? How did you do?
