April budget

April 2016 wardrobe additions — via Cotton Cashmere Cat Hair

Who What Wear for Target floral tank top: $23
Amour Vert 'Julita' side-tie tee (sold out; seen here): $56 (originally $70)
Soludos leather espadrilles (via Shopbop): $59 (originally $79)
Gorjana 'Taner' bar necklace (via Poshmark; seen here): $38 (retails for $60; used Poshmark funds)

April Total = $138

$450 (quarterly budget) - $234 (March) - $138 (April) = $78 left for May

This month, I picked up a couple of pretty tops to add into the rotation. (Both tops are size XS for reference.) I also decided to give Soludos a try and ordered a cute leather lace-up pair during Shopbop's Friends and Family sale earlier this month. They're so cute and more comfortable than I thought they would be! I've only worn them once, though, and they're already stained somehow. I have no idea what got on them but something did... So now there are a couple of tiny dark spots on one shoe. This is why I can't have nice things. #sigh I bought the Gorjana necklace to replace my old BaubleBar one; I was very happy to find it on Poshmark so that saved me a bunch of money! I hope it holds up better than my BaubleBar necklace.

I also ordered a striped cropped rash guard from J.Crew (size XS) and absolutely love it even though I probably won't get to wear it at all this summer. It'd be perfect for paddle boarding! (I'm so ready to go back to Hawaii just to use it, haha.) I ordered the matching boy short bottoms, but my usual size XS feels a bit too tight; I ordered a size small, which were backordered until July but I got a shipping confirmation on them yesterday. In the meantime, I'm trying to decide between navy and white in this top and these bottoms; the stripes in the rash guard are ivory so the white doesn't match it, but I do have a white top the bottoms could go with maybe. Plus I just like how tan I look in white! The navy is nice, too, and would go with other suits I have... #decisions

I have a couple of last minute orders that won't arrive until this weekend or later that will be included in next month's post if I like anything. I ordered a linen shirt, a couple of tank tops, and silk shorts; I really hope everything works out! There's not a whole lot left on my wishlist thankfully (why do I feel like I say that every month? LOL). I still plan to order gold sandals, and I hope to also pick up the denim vest and chambray skirt seen in this Instagram. I'm going to have to be really frugal next month (and hopefully sell a lot more on Poshmark!).
