Because of some gifted and c/o items I received this month, I didn't feel the desire to do much shopping. I did order a tankini top and bottom from Victoria's Secret (in white floral) since I needed a new bathing suit, however it was not exactly the pretty peach print pictured online. More like neon orange. Right back to the store it went. I don't really think it is necessary to draw attention to myself at the beach. No thank you. 
Also the jeans I got way back in early spring came. I am not sure if they were really worth the wait, but they fit well and I do like them. I wish I could wear them on the cooler days, but skinny jeans are a bit too tight on my knee right now so I've been sticking to shorts and my looser fit jeans. I also finally added in my Neiman Marcus Last Call cost. I got it a couple months ago, but since Yalanda and I did the swap this month and I got my jacket I am including it here.  It seemed to be a tee shirt heavy month, but they are so comfortable and versatile. And so on sale! I love all the fun colors I found. How did you all do this month?

  1. I am starting to look into what I need for fall now. There are some great sales for summer going on but I have only picked up a couple of transition pieces. I need a fall jacket and I just ordered a pair of boyfriend jeans - 40% off at Gap! I hope I love them! Happy Wednesday! Susan

  2. That pink and white striped skirt is just so lovely! And I think I know exactly what color you're talking about for your tankini. I ordered my bathing suit in an orange color and blue (that I kept) and when I opened the orange it was blinding! It was easy to pick which color I liked!

  9. $2 t-shirts!? Score. Such a good month for you - lots of pretty items but you really didn't end up spending that much. And neon orange bikini!? I would have sent it back too :)

  10. You got a lot of great things this month, but the distressed jeans are my favorite! How I want a pair so badly! (But how low that is on my list of needs!) The $2 tees are an amazing find!

  12. Such cute additions! And boo for the swimsuit. I've struck out with ordering online a few times. VS just doesn't work for me at all. They want to emphasize what I'm trying to contain! We do not have the same goals for swimwear!
