June budgeting roundup
Ann Taylor sleeveless floral-print shell, Savers, $6.82
A lightweight but dressy-looking top for work. I thought the color combination was pretty and unexpected.
Tommy Bahama linen long-sleeve buttondown, Savers, $11.07
I thrifted a Tommy Bahama silk shell a few months ago, and loved the quality of the fabric. I like that this looks a little like chambray, but will be cooler to wear.
J. Crew sleeveless linen dress, Savers, $11.08
I need lightweight, work-appropriate dresses for most of the school year, and I think this will be a nice addition to my closet. The armholes gape just a bit, but I think taking in the dress from the back would fix the problem. Someone also did a half-hearted job on shortening the straps, which I will unpick and do properly.
Style & Co. petite print dress, Macy's, $19.24
Another dress that looks promising for work ... it even matches our school colors!
Eddie Bauer gray tee, Sam's Club, $8.38 (not pictured)
I bought this because I wanted to add some embroidered embellishment to the neckline, but for accountability purposes decided to add it to my clothing budget vs. my crafting supplies budget.
I'm a little disappointed that this is the first month with a posted budget in which I've gone over ... but at the same time, I think all of these items will be well-used for work.
