August Budget

The first post-no buy budget! I'm actually really pleased with my purchases.  I've worn everything I bought this month at least twice, and it all follows the closet guidelines I came up with here.  I had amazing luck in the Target clearance section - rare, but it happens.  The dress and shell are in weekly rotation already. In fact, it's really hard to choose a favorite.  The ruffle tee is incredibly fun to twirl in, both shells are perfect for work and play and the flats were comfortable even from day one.  Killing it.

1 // Target dress - $13
2 // LOFT ruffle tee - $30 (seen here)
3 // Gap flats - $25
4 // Target shell (in gray polka dots, not pink) - $13
5 // LOFT tassel tee - $17

Some notes on fit - I found the LOFT ruffle tee to be quite boxy, and I preferred the look of the large, though the medium fit. The boxy/fitted look was not cute on me. The other two LOFT tops fit TTS, I took a large in both and they fit fairly loosely.  I was a bit bummed by the opacity of the white tee, but nothing a cami couldn't fix.

Linking up with Fran, as always.


  1. I wish I could pull off that bright yellow colour. The shirt is the same shape as my green one, and I love it! It would be nice to acquire some more colours. The colour on those flats are perfect. I've been looking all over for shoes in that colour and I haven't been able to find them anywhere yet! Nicely done on the clearance section finds.

  2. Looks like you got some great pieces! I'm really love the green dress and yellow blouse!

  3. I'm really loving the ruffled top from the Loft. It looks like you got really lucky with the olive target dress as well. Where is the mustard blouse from? I'm loving that color for fall.
