June 2014 Budget

Gray Skater Dress, Asos – $22.50 Was On Sale!

Heart Sunglasses, Moddeals – $6.50

Black Sunglasses, Moddeals – $3.50 (Sold Out, same in Leopard)

Cobalt Dress, Moddeals – $10.00

Off the Shoulder Dress, Moddeals – $10.00

Moddeals Total with $4.99 S&H: $34.99

Short-Sleeve Chambray, Lee – THRIFTED – $1.50 (NOT pictured, very very similar pictured from J.Crew Factory)

 Total: $58.99

I identified very quickly after rearranging my winter clothes and adding back my summer clothes that I am in need of some cute, casual summer dresses. I either have very dressy ones (for weddings, bridal showers, etc.) or very structured work dresses. I need something I can throw on for date night or on the weekends (because I find an easy breezy dress is much easier throw on than anything else during the summer).

I just got the Asos dress and it fits well and will be a great basic gray dress to go with a lot of things (and will be perfect for layering in the fall/winter too). The off the shoulder dress was one of my fun purchases. Not something I can wear all the time, but definitely perfect for date night in West End or brunch with my girlfriends! Finally, the cobalt dress. Drats! This is entirely too short on me (5’10”) to be comfortable in, but I love it so much I think it will look cute over leggings, and I have actually wanted a couple longer tops to wear with some of my leggings. For $10, I’m keeping it, and it is now a “tunic”!

Anyway, for a month less than $60 I’m feeling pretty good about life!

    Cobalt is one of my favorite colors! Even at 5’7″ I have the problem of dresses being too short. I put them on and if I can’t even bend over halfway, we have a problem!

      UGH, I know right?! It just shocks me because I’m like, WHO IN THE WORLD can wear these? Maybe it’s because most of my other girlfriends are also at least 5’8″ … but gosh, I just feel like dresses are so short all the time anymore, even more professional ones from like Banana Republic!

    Holy crap, that gray skater dress is amazing! I realized that most of my dresses fall into the same categories as you – either fancy, or super-structured for work. I only have a couple of “casual” dresses, so maybe when I used some rewards or a gift card during my year of no shopping (gift cards and rewards are exceptions to my rule of no shopping), I’ll have to find some more casual dresses as well :)
