June - Where My Dolla Bills Went (& A Closet Sale!)

As you know, I share my monthly clothing purchases every month along with some other bloggers. I do it to keep myself accountable, and to make sure I stay true to the reasons I started blogging in the first place (to get out of a fashion rut without spending a lot of money). So today I am sharing this month's purchase:

F21 Striped Blazer - purchased from a friend's clothing sale for $5

So yeah, I bought one thing. For $5 (true confessions - I also bought a pair of $3 pants from the sale, but I am giving them to a friend). My excuse for not buying more? Ehhhh, I just didn't want to spend any money. We went to Europe last month, and so far the summer has been a little more expensive (lots of small trips, eating out with friends, etc.) than normal. So I just didn't want to buy anything. Before you get all "Ashley, you are amazing! Your self-control is so inspiring" know that next month could be crazy. It's my birthday and I'll spend money if I want to, ya'll.

So. That brings me to the next section of this post. My friend inspired me to have my own closet sale! I don't have a ton of items, but if it goes well I'm sure I'll add more in the future. You can click the "shop my closet" tab at the top of my blog, or visit that page here.


  1. Good for you, girl!!! I always love months when I just don't want to spend money. :-)

  2. Wow! It's been so long since I've only spent a couple bucks on clothes for the whole month! haha... Good for you! Love the striped blazer!

Thanks so much for your comment! I reply to my comments via email, but I can't do that if you are a no-reply blogger (if you don't know what that means, you probably are). Check out this tutorial to fix it!
