May Budget

I’m linking up with Franish for my third shopping budget. And I am proud to say that this is the first time I am not ashamed or embarrassed of how much I spent this month.

You want to know the worst part about this particular link up?

It's seeing everyone elses awesome & super cute purchases. I bought that Jessica Simpson dress after seeing it on Kristina's blog and absolutely falling in love with it on the very first of May. Seriously. It did not bode well for the start of May and my so called goals that I set myself at the end of April. But luckily (or unluckily) the dress was not my cup of tea so back it went. I sent a lot of other stuff back, and sold some things on eBay that I couldn't return.

So what did I buy and keep?


wow I really like stripes..

1. Target Cami Maxi that I absolutely love! seen here. $25.

2. H&M grey striped top $7. picture is j crew top for $35.

3. Target coral shorts. $18.

4. Target striped dress. $18 Seen here.

5. Lands End chambray skirt off ebay $10.

6 & 7. H&M dresses. $13. 

These are the same dresses, I already had the black one and I bought a gorgeous emerald green one (not online and couldn't find a picture) and then after Meg told me she had bought the striped dress of Audrey's that I had been coveting for so.long. I raced back to H&M. Unfortunately, I didn't find the exact one, but I did get a striped dress almost identical, the stripes are just a little closer than the photo. 

So did I meet my goals for the month? Absolutely. I bought less than 10 items, and spent less than $150. Yay! I mean, I think I deserve a medal! 

Side note: I did not meet my other goals. Oh well!

Goals for June:

1. Buy all the things.
2. Eat all of the food.

Have a great June everyone! We leave on Thursday!!

  9. Not bad, those are really cute & good deals. I have been on Pinterest and Forever 21 way too long tonight and have convinced myself I need to go to Target tomorrow to look for skirts and dresses, but that could just be the chocolate milk talking.
