July Style Budget, Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Haul & Firmoo Giveaway!

I had the most relaxing weekend! We had no plans and with nothing to do, lounging around the house for two days was luxurious! I finally had time to try on the things I ordered from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and decide what I would keep or send back. 

Untitled #39

1. Topshop Stripe Sweater Dress $43. I always see other bloggers wearing a cute striped dress and have never been able to find one that I liked on me. My search is over. This Topshop number fits perfect and while it’s not ideal for a hot summer day, I will be able to wear it all fall, winter and spring. It’s a keeper!

2. Sam Edelman Fringe Bootie $110. I love the fun detail of fringe! I really wanted these in the putty color but I already have the non-fringe version in putty so I ordered them in black. The black was just okay so with that and the hefty price tag, they went back.

3. BP Scoopneck Tee $13. I have two of these tees in the striped version. They are the perfect layering piece and you can’t beat the price. A long sleeve white shirt is a must have wardrobe staple. It’s a keeper!

4. BP Stripe Crewneck $25. As I’m typing this, I see my obsession with stripes. The sweater was cute, but didn’t wow me, so it went back.

5. Kut from the Kloth Flare Jeans $63. I really want a sleek pair of flare jeans for fall and I thought these would fit the bill but they were too long and a little big in the waist. I didn’t want to add to the cost for alterations so sadly they went back.

6. Tom’s Desert Wedge $79. I already have these in black and wanted another pair so I ordered them in the taupe color. The pair I received was not suede and had a sparkly sheen to them. I was going to have them send me a new pair, but with my limited budget it didn’t make sense, so they went back.

7. Barefoot Dreams Drape Front Cardigan a.k.a. blardigan $61. I have a blardigan in the heather blue color and wear it year round (see my post here on how to style it for every season). No question, this is a keeper! Look for a post coming soon on four more ways to style it!

July budget $50

Money earned from blog $40

Nordstrom Note used $20

Total budget $110

Total spent $117

Over budget $17

I’m over budget $17 this month but I think I was smart about what I kept and sent back. I have three wardrobe staples and with the weather pattern predicted to be the same as last year, I definitely need another blardigan to get me through the winter!
