some all of my money!

+ Sole Society Yellow Suede Pumps (exact – these haven’t arrived yet, so not sure whether I am keeping or not)
Treat yo self! That’s what Parks and Rec says (here), and that show is based in Indiana, so I have to follow it right? And apparently June means gingham and Loft in my eyes.
In addition to that, a steady diet of blue/white/black patterns and minor other pops of color made up this month’s “traditional” budget. I’ve already worn a majority of these items, especially that Loft circle skirt! It has gotten a workout lately, since it came to the Pacific Northwest with us, and I wore it constantly.
I tried on several other things this month (specifically this chambray shell and this chambray dress from Loft) that I didn’t love at all. I thought the chambray dress was going to be like my beloved gingham birthday dress, but it was not at all. I also tried this swing dress from Old Navy, and let’s just say, I knew it wasn’t for my body type, but at least I tried?
I didn’t really pay attention to my June wishes noted in last month’s budget post, so I’m still on the lookout for some black/white stripe shorts (since the J.Crew Factory ones didn’t pan out) and some more tanks/tees for the hot summer months to come. I still really need to add to my 2015 Wishlist, as I feel like my style/wants have changed slightly since January, but I feel like I’m really on track with developing my style/wardrobe, which is a great feeling.
How did you do this month on your budget? I’m linking up with Franish’s Budgeting Bloggers, and you should too!
