June Budget

Oh Nordstrom, how I love thee.  I hit the semi-annual sale up pretty hard at the very beginning of the month, but got some great deals (and they price adjusted two things, saving me a ton more money!!).  Everything I picked up has been in heavy rotation since they arrived, and I'm anticipating living in all 3 of the Halogen tanks for the summer.  I also had an unexpected windfall this month, and ended up ordering a few splurge pieces that I'd been lusting after for ages.  They are all a above what I would typically pay for that type of item, but am thrilled with the quality - you definitely get what you pay for! Not going to lie, I sometimes just wear the dress around the house - I feel gorgeous in it!



Halogen Olson Flats // $45
Halogen Scalloped Tank // $40
Bobeau Cardigan // $40
Halogen Tanks // $10 each

Total // $145
Quarterly Budget // $500 - $135 - $148 - $145 = $72 left over!



Eliza J Dress // $82
Barbour Beadnell // $298
Madewell High Riser // $128

Size Notes // Everything Halogen fits TTS and is super high quality for the price.  I went a size up in the Eliza J dress, to accommodate my chest, which ended up being a good move. I had to do some pin finagling to get the top to not gap, but it fits beautifully. Also sized up on the Barbour and can now wear allllllllll the sweaters under it.

  3. The Eliza J dress is very cute - definitely a nice way of splurging.

    I have that Bobeau fleece cardigan, and I love it! It doesn't get much use in the summer, of course, but I wear it basically every time I get on a plane. It's just so comfortable.

  5. The scalloped detail on the tanks is so cute! If they were still in stock, I would seriously consider getting one myself!
