“What We Bought This Month” is a recurring series showing what three real, hard-working mamanistas spent their money on this month.
My purchases this month were all about getting ready for (say it an Oprah voice) VACATION!!!
I scored a great deal at Old Navy on some much needed shorts, picking up a total of 3 pairs, a tank and a dress for $47. I also snagged a few things from ShopTMM (one of the many benefits of being a #bossmom) including this gorgeous black maxi dress I call the Angelina, a tasseled-trimmed tank and this killer open back, but still bra-friendly, tank.
And for the second time, Sarah had an amazing pair of shoes that I couldn’t stop coveting so of course I had to buy them too. The first pair that I blatantly copied from her were these amazing leopard print block heels, and this month, it was these adorable multi-colored tassel sandals.

Total Amount Spent: $168.99
Favorite Item Purchased: Definitely the Angelina Black Maxi Dress. It feels glamorous on and pairs perfectly with my favorite Fly Girl Lipsense for vacation!
I recently re-organized my closet, and it has made such a difference in allowing me to shop my closet for new looks and better utilize Le Tote to complement what I already own. Of course, I couldn’t resist treating myself to a couple of pieces from ShopTMM, but I chose to use the majority of my shopping budget to invest in caring for my skin.
I’ve added a Boxy Charm subscription, Glossier Cloud Paint, Thrive Causemetics eye brightener, a few new LipSense colors, some Beautycounter products and Rodan + Fields anti-aging hand treatment to my overflowing collection of beauty and skincare products. And I’m not sorry at all. I’d also like to point out that I am very supportive of my friends and their business endeavors…
Number of Items Purchased: 15
Total Amount Spent: I better not say. My marriage depends on it. *wink*
This month we bought plane tickets for a trip to Ireland later this summer, so I challenged myself to spend under $200 in beauty and fashion! I signed up for LeTote clothing rental service for $39.99 a month and tried hard to resist the temptation to buy unless I really loved it. On my purchase list this month: jewelry accents, an addition to my growing collection of LipSense and a few summer dresses from ShopTMM.
Number of Items Purchased: 8
Total Amount Spent: $198.49
Favorite Item Purchased: Trapeze Beaded Chandelier Earrings. These earrings were a surprise gem in my first Le Tote box. I instantly fell in love with them and at $9 they were a great deal! Their neutral color makes them easy to mix into any outfit!
