May Budget

The month in which I buy two tote bags. Ah well, at least I'm predictable... I picked the BP bag up at the very beginning of the month and basically haven't stopped using and admiring it since then.  And the straw tote is making all of my farmer/hippy/bohemian chic girl dreams come true. Also, I am truly excellent at justifying the purchase of more tote bags. It is one of my best things.

The Nordstrom half-yearly sale just started (lots of discounts, plus 6 percent cash back from ebates!), so I picked up a few pieces from there, including shoes I'll probably wear all summer and a shell that (fingers crossed!) will be super versatile.

Soludos Espadrilles $42
Target Tank $5
Halogen Shell $16 (on crazy sale!)
Straw Tote $35
BP Scalloped Tote $50

Total - $148
Quarterly Budget - $500 - $135 - $148 = $217 left for June!

  1. I totally thought that tote on the bottom right was a kate spade. What a find!

  2. I'm a tote fan as well, so I fully accept your justification ;) I love that both of them have a little something extra going on. The tassels on the straw tote a really fun, and it seems like they're right on point for summer's trends this year.

  3. I feel like this is the month of adorable totes! Seeing so many great ones that people found - LOVE both of yours :)

  4. Love that straw tote, it looks so much more expensive than some of the ones I was looking at!

  5. Both the tote bags are really cute. It really does have that Kate Spade look!
