june 2014 fashion budget

Hi friends, another month has gone by and as usual, it’s time to see what I bought this month. This month’s theme seems to be vintage bags…I just can’t get enough of them. I also ended up with a REALY nice and REALLY expensive swimsuit, something that I would normally never splurge on but with my hubby’s support (he loves the pinup style), a coupon code, and NO willpower, I went for it!

Full disclosure…I did buy a few goods for the home this month, including some Pyrex for my collection (it’s getting slightly out of hand :))

Ok, so here’s what I got:
1. Sugar Doll Warhol polka dot bikini swimsuit in pink
=$90 after shipping & coupon code

2. Black vintage Coach bag
3. White & brown vintage Dooney & Bourke Bag
4. Wishbone zipper baggie
5. Fossil wallet (for my mom)
=thrifted for $18

6. Not Your Daughter’s Jeans grey jeggings
7. Not Your Daughter’s Jeans grey pants
8. Gap Khaki Skinny pants, olive green
= $23 after credits from ThredUp!

9. Old Navy navy and white blouse, thrifted for $1 after coupons
10. Tracy Negoshian 60s print dress, thrifted $18 (NWT!)
11. Skunk Funk crossbody bag, thrifted $4
12. Tiny vintage Coach purse,thrifted $7
13. Gap red military-inspired jacket, thrifted $10
14. Vintage Mulberry London (!!!!) mini crossbody bag, thrifted $25
15. Green and brown vintage Dooney and Bourke crossbody, thrifted $25

16. Birkenstock sandals, thrifted $10 (not pictured)

So all in all I definitely went over my budget (cute bikini, I blame this on you!!!)

=TOTAL $231

Hi Friends,
Today I’m joining my friend Miche’s Link Up the Love tuesday link-up. It’s a great idea to spread some positivity in the world. From Miche:¬†#LinkUpTheLove is pretty simple: just write something nice about someone on any form of social media and come back here and link it up! For more details,¬†check out the¬†original post here.

My Weekly Love:

To the sweet lady at Costco. My mother smiled at her (something she usually does), she thanked her genuinely for doing so. Maybe she was having a bad day or maybe she hadn’t felt welcome in a new town. Either way, it was unusual to receive thanks for a simple smile but it shoes my mom and I how much it meant to her. So, for that, my weekly love goes to a lady who needed a little extra smile, and smiled at my mom in return. I hope you’re day is wonderful and we hope to see you as Costco again soon! I try and smile at strangers that cross paths with me and from now on, I’ll keep in mind that sometimes a smile is more than just a smile.

Well, happy Tuesday to you all and I hope you join Miche’s #linkupthelove Tuesday posts and spread a little love + positivity in this world.

 

army chic + another ThredUp order!

Hey friends, I wanted to share with you my new lovely Gap ‘army’ jacket and my lovely ThredUp pants. I found this lovely jacket at Goodwill last weekend. Yeah, it was $10, which is more than I like to spend at Goodwill on jackets but I’m so glad I did. I’m not sure how old or new it is but it’s in perfect condition with a really cool interior.

Now onto the pants. I needed some pants that were more summer-y and I looked to ThredUp for great prices. I cannot get enough of ThredUp. I order 3 pairs of pants from them a few weeks ago and the prices just can’t be beat. I got 2 pairs of NYDJ grey khakis/jeggings and 1 pair of Gap khakis for summer. They were on average $15 each! I’d appreciate you using my referral code if you’re thinking of ordering from ThredUp – you get $10 off your first order!

I hope you liked my outfit!

xo,
Nout
