August Style Budget

Can you believe it's already September 1st? It's time to hold myself accountable to my budget by showing you what I bought. This month I focused on finding key pieces on my wishlist to take me into fall and through the winter. Here's where my dollars went in August:

Untitled #40


August budget: $50
Money earned from blog: $15
Ebates big fat check: $39.40
Total budget: $104.40
Total spent: $64.33
Under budget: $40.07

Camo is here to stay so when I saw this cute tee for $7 it immediately went into my shopping cart at Target along with the school supplies and groceries. Check out my post on three ways to style it here!

I was thrilled when Brandzaffair contacted me and let me pick out an item. It was a no-brainer selecting a pair of flare jeans for fall! I will be posting about my experience with Brandzaffair on Thursday. Stay tuned!

Sweater season will be here soon and this sleeveless tunic will be perfect to layer under sweaters without adding bulk. It was on sale and with a $10 reward certificate my total cost was $1.33!

These scalloped shorts were purchased in July but they didn't make it on my July budget that was focused on my Nordstrom haul. I was over budget $17 in July so this would have made it $33.

I've worn this grey swing dress several times already and can't wait to style it in the fall with tights and boots. See how I styled it for summer, here!

My search for the perfect olive vest is over! This has been on my wishlist for ages but I was never able to find one that I liked on me. I found this one at TJ Maxx!

Luckily I had an Ebates cash back check that helped my bottom line. Did you stick to your budget this month?


Join me tomorrow for our monthly How I Style It Linkup! This month's theme is #chambrayeverywhere!
I hope you will come back and link up your chambray looks with us!
