August Budget


1. Baseball cap-J. Crew $12.10 (exact, similar, similar
2. Shorts-J.Crew $25.03 (exact, similar
3. Neon sweater-J. Crew $19 (exactsimilar, similar
4. Cloth-$20 (not pictured-my mother-in-law is making it into a skirt for me!)
5. Sandals-Target $16.91 (exact, similar
Total: $93.04

J Crew had a really great sale earlier this month and I picked up a few items including a pair of white shorts to replace my old ones that were ruined in the wash. I thought the sweater and hat were fun purchases and for a great deal. I can't wait to wear the hat this fall! The shorts are a perfect length, but I might have to see if I can exchange them for a size down. I just haven't gotten around to it yet. 

Even though August was my birthday month, I didn't take much time to go shopping. That's mostly due to the fact that I had no time. Period. Between vacations, interviews, and doing paperwork associated with switching jobs it just didn't happen. I am hoping to make up for that a bit in September. I need a new pair of black heels and nude heels. A casual fall jacket might be on my wish list as well. 
What is on your fall wish list?

  5. I love the idea of the hat, but I wouldn't know where to begin with how to style it! I hope you feature it on the blog and give us some ideas :)

  6. Awesome August picks. Love the hat and sweater and those sandals are slightly nautical, also which I adore.


    My Fall list is long but at the top of it would be some camel suede booties with heels, some black wedge booties, a houndstooth pencil skirt, a utility vest (olive, khaki or both), a tailored, knee-length navy pencil skirt, metallic pumps, red pumps and cobalt blue pumps. I know that's a lot. I only plan to get these once I get a couple of paychecks in lol.
