May Budget

Every month I post about my clothing budget. My budget per month is $350, which may seem like a lot to some and a little to others, but feels just right for me. You can read my thoughts on my 2016 budget here.

Another month, another budget post. This month I shopped. And shopped and shopped. In case you couldn't tell from my last try-ons post ;) I ended up returning a lot though, and just squeeked in under budget. I really didn't think I was going to get there because at one point my budget tracker said I had spent close to $600!! I managed to snag a couple of really fun pieces, plus some practical ones for work (but sadly, the search for dress pants continues). So here's the damage for May:

J. Crew Sweater - originally $89.50, on sale $62.65. Seriously the best sweater ever. I probably wear it more times than is socially acceptable in a week. I wore it here.
J. Crew Straw Hat - originally $34.50, on sale $24.15. I actually added this to my cart to get free shipping, but I love it!! Perfect for beach days.
LOFT Striped Shorts - originally $49.50, on sale + used rewards $19.70.
BP. Bow Mules - $69.95. Definitely my favorite purchase of the month, I've been wearing them non-stop. So comfortable! I wore them here.
Bobeau Bell Sleeve Tee - $49. Love love love. Wore it here.
J. Crew Factory Striped Dress - originally $108, on sale $54. This just came in the mail over the weekend and it's perfect - somehow the fit is in between a fit and flare and a sheath dress, which makes it perfect for work or fun.
SUGARFIX by BaubleBar Earrings - originally $9.99, on sale $7.99. Wore them here.
J. Crew Carnation Earrings - originally $25, on sale $17.15. I freaking love these, I probably wear them way too much. Seen here.
LOFT Bow back tank - originally $34.50, on sale and used rewards $10.70. This is cute and simple and is definitely getting a lot of wear this summer!

Total spent: $315.29
Total saved: $154.65

I'm pretty pleased that I ended up under budget this month, giving myself a big pat on the back for that one ;) So what am I shopping for this month? I'm still looking for dress pants (ugh) and hopefully another item or two that can make the jump from office to weekend.

Did you budget in May? How'd you do?
