July 2015 Clothing Budget
J. Crew Factory scalloped trim dress: $30 (regularly $98, on clearance + additional 50% off)
J. Crew Factory v-neck tee: $12.50
Kate Spade ‘One in a Million’ initial pendant necklace: $21 via eBay
J. Crew Factory linen cotton drawstring pant: $20
J. Crew Factory (clearly a favorite store of mine) was having a killer sale with 50% off of clearance items, so I treated myself. The tee and pants are nice casual pieces, although I’d size down on the pants. Since they are linen, they don’t retain their shape and get quite lose as the day goes on. The dress is something I’ve been lusting after for a while—love the plain navy (super remixable) and the scalloped edges (including a v-back) but they only had a couple sizes left. That said, I snagged one in a smaller size and am crossing my fingers that it fits, or will hopefully fit in the near future. We will see when it arrives in the mail. I also found a killer deal on eBay for a Kate Spade simple, classic necklace featuring my little guy’s first initial that I can wear…loooove it!
I picked up a few other items that aren’t pictured here, including a couple pairs of Mizuno shorts on super clearance for $5 each. I also stocked up on my favorite underwear, and found a gorgeous coral tunic and Loft ivory lace top at my local consignment store, where I was able to apply my sold profits towards the purchase. All in all, this month’s purchases were again covered by blog income, consignment and eBay sales- which is always my goal. Trying to stick to a budget post baby isn’t easy when you love to shop, but it’s a necessity these days!
And lastly for this month, I received the following from my sponsors:
- Adorable chambray shorts c/o Shopbop (outfit post coming tomorrow!)
- A beautiful black bag from Olivia + Joy (styled here)
- Used Wantable credits for this Heather gray top with lace (review here)
- Classic Kate Spade New York Pave Disc Stud Earrings c/o Shopbop
- Loft Lou & Grey spacedye maxi dress c/o Brandzaffair (styled here)
A sincere thanks to supporting those who support me!
