My Monthly Buys | June 2016

July 11, 2016

I'm going to be honest and say that June was a huge f*ck it month for me when it came to money. But hey, I still had money left over to pay for my rent and bills, which is all that matters. Another thing I have to be honest about is that this whole My Monthly Buys series actually helps me spend less (yes, this month could have been a lot worse) because the more I buy, the more I have to document! Kind of a funny way to spend less, but it definitely works!

BooHoo: $53

So I did some damage at, but I got everything here (except the rings) for half off. I stocked up on some things for work and summer and I love everything I got! I've already styled the pink dress in this post and be on the look out for how I style the others.

Forever 21 Pink Crop Top: $8 / Black Aldo Lace-up Flats from DSW: $30 / Thrifted Black Skort: $4
 Between the Forever 21 culottes and crop top I only spent $15 out of pocket because I had $10.90 on a gift card. And isn't this skort too cute?!

Adidas Tank via Burlington Coat Factory: $15

Nike Cap from T.J. Maxx: $10 / Puma Sides from Burlington Coat Factory: $12

Brown Heeled Sandals from Marshalls: $30
I got these to wear to my friend's wedding. The insert actually ripped off while I was wearing them, so I need to super glue that soon...

Topshop @ Nordstrom: $53
Okay, I found black Joni jeans on sale for $43 so I clearly had to buy them! I also picked up a basic white cropped tank for $10. $21
Organic Spirulina: $3 / Witch Hazel: $1 / Acure Facial Scrub: $8.50  / Risha Matcha Powder: $7 / Organic Coconut Flakes: $3 / Jojoba Oil: $5 / Organic Tea: Free Samples!

So I heard about from Amy of Vagabond Youth and decided to pick out some products to try because she had a $5 off code and shipping was free over $20. If you've never heard of iHerb it's an online market place for organic and natural products. They carry everything from skin care and makeup to food. I totally recommend checking the site out. They also have Super Specials so definitely check those out to catch a deal. If you have any questions about these products listed just leave me a comment or shoot me an email @

Total June Expenditures: $243
Okay, so it was a bad (financial) month. Lets just say I had a little extra money and I felt secure enough to go wild with the clothes. I probably shouldn't have bought those brown heeled sandals, but they were totally an impulse/special occasion buy. I do want to style them here on the blog soon.

Did you regret buying anything last month? Is there anything you plan on buying/on your wishlist for the month of July?


  1. Love those Topshop picks, such a great deal for $43 for those jeans! And if you're feeling secure with money then it's ok to indulge every now and then!

  7. That pink top is so lush! I have a similar one from UO and I love it!

  8. Reverse psychology all the way, Sheila, hahaha. Loving all the clothing items you picked out this month! I splurged quite a bit in June, too. Mostly on makeup which is something I never do, really, but I justified my spending on the fact that it's my birthday month, hahaha.
