may 2017 budget

I know, I know, this post is a bit late! But, I didn’t want to go skip this month’s budget post.

may 2017 budget

Here’s what I bought this month:

  • Classiques Entier blazer, $21 from Poshmark
  • Cabi blazer + Madewell bag – consignment credit {and I just realized I didn’t take a picture of my Madewell  Transport Satchel, but I’m sure it will show up later on my blog!}
  • Purple cotton dress $35, local boutique
  • Beija Flor Audrey jeans – gift from mom
  • Leota dress, ebay $23.70
  • Beija flor green Audrey jeans plus dark Nicole jeans, on sale for $98 for both
  • Longchamp mini card holder, $18 from Clothes Mentor


  • Clark heels $15
  • Fresh Produce pink tee $3.59
  • NYDJ jeans $3.59
  • Jen7 jeans $3.75
  • Banana Republic blouse $5
  • Lands End jacket $18
  • Talbots button down shirt $3.59
  • J Crew silk blouse $5
  • BR factory skirt $5

=$261.81 TOTAL. I had $310 left for May and June so that leaves me $48.19 left for June (yikes). Ugh, ya’ll… that is over my budget.

Also…I went a little crazy with make up this month! I don’t usually include beauty/sundries/underwear in my monthly budget but since this was a pretty big expenditure, I think it deserved a special mention. Also I spent some money at the tailor getting my clothing taken in after my 30lb weight loss (but hey, that’s not a bad thing).
