Last monthwe scooped up a beautiful jumpsuit, a cute off the shoulder top, a sassy one-piece swimwear, and a fabulous pair of jelly sandals for less than $230 with $23 left to spend in July.  We are adding this amount to this month’s $200 monthly budget.  So, for July we have a total of $223.04 to spend.

A lot of people think you have to spend a lot of money to look like a million bucks.  Well, as you can see through this series you don’t.

Keep in mind that we are building a cohesive wardrobe that you can mix and match for seasons to come.  For July, sales are happening everywhere.  Yes, I was tempted to spend more than my budgeted amount but I refrained from doing so.

I’ve been holding out on getting a bag for this series- a really good structured bag that can last for years to come.  I’m so delighted to let you know that I found that bag and it’s within our budget!  Meet Leewood Place Makayla Leather Tote Bag in dusty pink from Kate Spade New York.  This beauty is only $199!!!

Leather Tote Bag ($199):  This pebbled leather tote bag is currently on sale.  It is perfect for work and play. It has a 4″ drop top handles. The 19.5″ shoulder straps are adjustable and removable. The sizing (8.4″H x 11.9″W x 4.3″D) is not too big or too small.

Stay tuned for what is to come in August!
