I usually find that I spend a bit more in months with a lot of special events. My two largest purchases, this month, were shoes for The LBD Event and a necklace I bought at Red, Pink, and Blue.
1. Nine West floral peep-toe pumps, $55.30
I’ve had so much fun mixing patterns with my floral Miss Me shoes, that I started searching for a second pair of flowered heels. This Nine West pair is fairly comfortable and was on clearance!
2. Style & Co earrings, $12
3. Style & Co beaded necklace, $16.80 (not yet photographed)
I shopped Macy’s for a pair of turquoise-colored earrings to complete my Red, Pink, and Blue outfit. I couldn’t resist the necklace I found next to them.
Tri-State Antique Market
I organized a group trip to the monthly Tri-State Antique Market. As I was making introductions, I realized that the group was dominated by style bloggers (me, Tamia, Goose, and Londyn). I promised to take them to my favorite, top-secret, $1 jewelry stall. After much sweaty slogging through the heat, I didn’t find my usual vendor, but another operator had boxes of $1 jewelry for us to paw through. We tore it up.
4. White beaded necklace, $1
5. Silver Indian pendant, $1
6. Moscow pin, $1
7. Red-orange beaded necklace, $15
8. Turquoise stone necklace, $40
I’m the sort of person that rarely carries cash, but I made a withdrawal before Red, Pink, and Blue, anticipating a cash-only bar and Serket Jewelry’s booth.
June total: $142.10
In July, I’m looking for a pair of bright jeans (or pants). Urban Outfitters has some options (by BDG) and free shipping this weekend. I may also pick up a few of the Calypso St. Barth for Target pieces that are now on clearance.
Total spending for the year: $693.98
