“What We Bought This Month” is a recurring series showing what three real, hard-working mamanistas spent their money on this month.
In April, I had no real shopping strategy, but vowed to update my “underthings” in May. I took an amazing trip to a local bra-fitting store, and it can only be described as life-changing. I purchased two new bras for $150 and immediately threw out my old ones.
I also added some much needed new shorts to my wardrobe, and dipped my toes into the embroidery trend with this awesome shirt.
Number of Items Purchased: 11
Total Amount Spent: $300
Favorite Item Purchased: Why did it take so long for me to buy a denim jacket?! And it pairs so well with this maxi dress!
This month, I was focused on procuring a few fresh summer additions to my closet, like a versatile basket bag, tassel accessories and a kimono cover-up. I have also clearly caught Aimee’s jewelry shopping addiction, which I’m okay with because these earrings are pretty amazing.
Number of Items Purchased: 13
Total Amount Spent: $236
Favorite Item Purchased: I am completely, head-over-heels obsessed with the embroidered clutch that I kept from a Le Tote.
This month’s warmer weather has me dreaming of sunshine, cocktails by the pool and trips to the beach with my family! I focused on summer trends including pom poms and tassel inspired shoes, tops and accessories and tropical print everything! I also found my ultimate summer unicorn this month, a straw purse I can use day to day.
Number of Items Purchased: 12
Total Amount Spent: $206.43
Favorite Item Purchased: Free People St. Bart’s Straw Purse… I’m obsessed! I find myself staring at it while waiting in line at the grocery store… don’t judge! Plus, I bought it with a gift card from my boyfriend so it makes me think of him too. See that’s a less superficial reason to love this purse so much, right?
