June Wardrobe Additions

June was a busy month, which meant not a lot of time for shopping. I only picked up three clothing items at Old Navy during a sale - and spent a total of $35 dollars on the three items.

The first was a pair of khaki colored twill shorts. Really sturdy, but still soft and light weight material. I was looking for a pair of khaki shorts that weren't booty shorts, since I don't think I could pull that off anymore, ha. These fit the bill! They're currently on sale for $14 - but I paid around $9 for them.

The second thing was this high neck tank top, in a black and white microstripe. I really love high necks in this type of form. They're modest and harken back to the 70s, which I love. This is so so cute and I've been wearing it ever since I got it. It washes pretty well for an Old Navy top. In my very few experiences, they usually don't! When I bought this, it was the most expensive thing of the three - $14.

Finally, the last pair of shorts I bought were definitely an impulse buy. I'm usually not drawn to pleated shorts, but this is made of a really soft and well draping material. I paired it with a striped shirt and it looks almost skirt-like! It's a lot more versatile than I had thought it would be. Again, these were $12 during the sale.

This month - most of my disposable income went toward moving costs and picking up furniture for the apartment. A couch, a chair, a rug, a dresser, and a mirror were the main expenses. But it finally feels moved in and I love it! I can't say that I have many things I have my eye on, sartorially speaking, aside from what I was lusting after last month. I've yet to rationalize putting in an everlane order for those Ryan tanks. Maybe this month?

Linking up with Fran and the budgeting bloggers as always!

    1. They are so cute, I want more! But I shouldn't, haha.

  2. I purchased #3 as well last month and absolutely love them. They're so comfy. You'll not regret getting them!

  3. I've been spending a ton on home items too. It's amazing how expensive they can be!

  4. I have #3 in a pattern and they are so lightweight and comfy!

  5. The pleated shorts look fun! The Ryan tanks are really nice, very soft and they drape well.

    I can definitely relate to how expensive moving can be. I'll be doing my "real" move into a new apartment in October, and the amount of money I have to set aside (for first/last month's rent, a deposit, likely a broker's fee, etc.) is a slightly jaw-dropping number, even when split between two people!
