June Purchases

I was consigny and thrifty this month!


For my ComiCon outfit, I was looking for a skater-style black skirt. I got lucky at Crossroads.

1. Miss Avenue pleather skirt, $13.50.


I found three Banana Republic button-front shirts at this Goodwill. Two fit and came home with me.

2. Banana Republic Soft Wash Shirt in blue gingham, $5.99.
3. Banana Republic Soft Wash Shirt in navy and white print, $5.99.

June total: $25.48.

Total spending for the year: $938.88

Remaining 2015 budget: $861.12

Dry Heat

These 100+ degree days are bearable when the humidity is low and the air is moving. Sweat evaporates so quickly that you hardly know you’re perspiring. The biggest challenge is probably staying hydrated.

Shirt, Banana Republic (thrifted). Skirt, Carole Little (thrifted). Shoes, Linea Paolo. Earrings, gift. Belt, Hyde Collection. Bag, Imoshion.

I’m keeping myself and my pups well-watered.

Spray Tan

It’s that time of year again . . . when all my customers ask me if I’ve gotten a spray tan. They look skeptical when I explain the color is from my weekends in the pool and the Sierra, my weekdays walking to and from salons, and weeknights just outside. I guess I don’t look outdoorsy enough to have gotten all that sun exposure (despite sunscreen).

Shirt, Forever 21. Shorts, Audrey. Shoes, Seychelles. Sunglasses, Toms. Earrings, Jack E Oh’s NYC. Purse, Anne Klein (thrifted). Belt, thrifted.

I can’t forget morning runs with the dogs. It’s hard to beat sunrise at 5:43 a.m., but we are going to have to start going earlier, in the dark. The sun PLUS heat are too much for my pups, even early in the day.

While I find the morning sun an annoyance, this guy was basking in it at the lightrail station:

Return of the Cocktail Shorts

I don’t remember what possessed me to pick up these short-short, high-waisted, fancy shorts at TJ Maxx, but I’ve gotten plenty of use out of them. At $14.99, the cost per wear is 88 cents.

Shirt, Fifth Sun. Shorts, Sans Souci. Shoes, Gianni Bini. Sunglasses, Meow Meow. Purse, Anne Klein (thrifted).

The previous sixteen outfits:

Phew, that’s a lot of leg!

365 from Saturday and Sunday:

Eating healthy and getting exercise so I can keep squeezing into these shorts.
