Money Remaining in 3rd Quarter Budget
Guys, I'm going to take a second here to pat myself on the back AND give myself a high five. Took at that budget above! About halfway through July (and the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale), I decided that I was done order new things until the boy came back from his vacation. I figured that would give me about a month (mid August) and then I would see what happened from there. It oddly became a lot easier than I thought to just not shop and whenever I would start browsing sites the urge to buy just wasn't there (and it felt amazing).
Now, I did buy three things this month, so let me explain those. The TopShop tanks: if you haven't noticed from this post, this post, or this post, I'm in love with these tanks. I've actually been waiting for the navy to come back in stock for about three months now, so when it did, I jumped on the opportunity. I also saw that it was available in mint and since that's a color I know I love wearing, I jumped on that too. Combined with the fact that I had a Nordstrom Note to use, I ended up saving about $20 on these tanks.
The booties: Looking through my pinterest boards and shoptagr page, I've noticed one thing that I really love wearing are booties. I had also been looking at a few pairs at Sole Society, but hadn't really made a decision yet (aka waiting for a sale to happen). However, I was trying to kill time the other day, so I decided to wander through Forever 21. Long story short, I came across these booties and loved them. I didn't buy them though. I decided to wait a little bit and then realized I couldn't stop thinking about them (and coming up with outfits for them). Honestly, that's a cincher for me.
So that was a really long explanation for three items. But I was really excited. I'm still a little in the red because of July, but I'm hoping that September will help to even that out.
