Here's what I bought with my May budget! My #1 priority this month was finding a nude, buttery soft leather handbag. After searching for a few weeks, I snapped up this Calvin Klein from Saks Off Fifth for a steal. (And have been wearing it non-stop ever since.) The bag took up the majority of my budget, and the remaining items were fun items I found for good prices and couldn't pass up.
Banana $30 / Gap $14 / Forever 21 $30 (similar, similar, similar)
Forever 21 $17 / LOFT $21 / Guess/Marshall's $25 (similar, similar)
LOFT $18 / Forever 21 $30 / Gap $16
Limited $21 / Gap $20
Total = $242
I'm also sharing a little preview of my June budget. Several of these items I'm not 100% sure about. I haven't seen the Forever 21 items in person yet, and I'm on the fence about the mint Limited shorts. But here's what I've got so far. My goal for June was shorts and clutches - and that took up about half my budget. I was also hoping to find nude wedges, and had planned to spend up to $75, but found these on clearance at Marshall's for only $25. The mustard sweater was an investment for fall, to replace my current beloved mustard sweater that is looking worn, and the neon cardigan, crochet dress, camo tee and necklace were fun items to add some pizazz to my closet.
