July Purchases and Budget

It feels more like October here today, but we're almost to the end of July! Time for a quick budget roundup for clothes and accessories this month. I did buy quite a bit this month, but most of it was bought second-hand. :) I don't have pictures of everything, but here's the breakdown of what I bought.

July Purchases and Budget

Garage Sales:
  • Denim jacket - $5 (made into a vest)
  • Striped dress - $2
  • Apt. 9 polka dot blouse - $1 (so excited about this one!)
  • Style and Co. long-sleeve tunic/dress - $2 (still had the tags on it)
  • St. John's Bay brown and tan striped cardigan - $2
  • Anne Klein print tunic blouse - $3.25
  • Axcess print wrap dress - $5.68
  • Light green 3/4 sleeve tee - $3.50
  • Gold cross earrings - $2.10
  • Print scarf - $5.34
  • Camel colored belt - gift card
  • Light green NY and Co pants - $6.16
Plato's Closet:
  • Dark olive GAP stretch ankle pants - $1.07
  • Ankle boots - $13.83
Total: $52.93

I am pleased I was able to find some pants and dresses this month. Those are always tough for me to find. I also really like the ankle boots.

I'm trying to figure out a shopping strategy for August. This will be the last month for garage sales around here, so I definitely want to keep an eye out there. That being said, I need to pay attention to some of the core pieces I still want and the replacements I'd like to get. Some of these items include a gray tee shirt, black skinnies, and cognac riding boots.

I love how thrifty you are, you did great with your budget. Got a lot for your dollar. Also, I'm loving your style. I picked up the same perforated belt at Target this month.
