August Budget

August Budget


1. Martin Tote– JustFab This TOTE from JustFab is amazing! It is HUGE and looks really expensive in real life, but it was the good old JustFab price of $39.95. I know I am going to get a ton of use out of it, especially on the weekends for shopping or errands where I can just throw everything in it. It is similar to my other JustFab bag, but different material, a darker color. It is different enough for me anyway 🙂 (Similar here and here)

$39.95 + Free Shipping = $39.95

2. Ambrosia Heels– JustFab I said it in a post before, but when I saw these heels I HAD TO HAVE THEM! They are the less expensive version of the Joe’s Jeans heels and I love them! They are professional enough to wear to work, but fun enough that I’m going to wear them everywhere.

$39.95 + Free Shipping = $39.95

3. Virgin Islands Work Out Tank & Maldives Shorts from the Bon Voyage Collection– Ellie I actually own this same tank top in black from their Little Black Collection and the neon/white version from their Cosmic Love Collection, both of which are sold out now, so it is a great, functional and cute top! These shorts are also super comfy and the stripes on the band are just too cute!

$49.95 + Free Shipping (no longer an option if you weren’t already signed up as a member) = $49.95

You don’t have to be a part of the Fit Fashionista Club to order, but I personally love being a member and even though you have to remember to skip each month being in the club if you don’t want to spend money on work out clothes, it is totally worth it when you do want some work out clothes. You can get a combination of a top and leggings/shorts, two tops, two bottoms, whatever for $49.95!  I have shopped for work out clothes at Target, TJMaxx and what not too, and it is usually at least this price to get two pieces if not more. The items are high quality and when these clothes aren’t all dirty, I am wearing them to run, at the gym, to walk the dog, run errands, etc. They are cute, comfy and high quality. The only thing that is a bummer is that the support for the chest isn’t that great, at least not in the tops I own. But I am a small cup size, so it doesn’t really matter to me at the gym. When I run, I’ll throw a sports bra on underneath. From their newer collections, it looks like at least some of their tops are addressing this issue and most of the leggings now include hidden pockets to place keys, etc. when running or out and about! Anyway, big fan of their work out clothes and wish I could own them all! The only collection I didn’t buy something from was the Summer Splendor collection and not because I didn’t love the clothing, it just wasn’t in my budget last month!

Total: $129.85

I honestly didn’t want to spend more than $50 this month because I am saving up for our move next month. Hello UHaul and Deposit costs (YIKES). But it happened and I’m happy that I got things I will actually get a ton of use out of over time. I have kind of come to a hault on clothing shopping because I’m still not doing a good job buying what I need to have the most functional closet I can AND because my boyfriend and I will be sharing one walk-in closet at our new place. I am used to my own walk-in closet. Should be interesting haha.

Splurge or Save: Shoes


Splurge or Steal: Shoes

(1) (2) (3) (4) (5) (6)

Last week I got a sneak peek at my JustFab August boutique and feel in love with the Ambrosia pair. I had to buy them! I then saw a fashion blogger post the Joe’s Jeans version on Instagram and decided it was time for a splurge or save shoe edition! Can you tell I’ve been on a shoe kick lately? Going to be great when we move in a couple months 😉
