I was striving for a 'no-shop' July, but clearly I failed. Moving and job hunting stress set in and I spent every nickel of reward certificates, store credit, and gift cards that I had. I listed the prices for items I paid before the application of credits, but after factoring those in, I actually spent a pretty limited amount and got a ton of great staples. I've lived in the birkenstocks during my recent move, used the reversible tote almost daily, and worn the floral scuba skirt every chance I get because it's just so fabulous. I'm going to try and not shop August, for real though. I'm obsessed with Fall clothes and would rather get a few more of those come September than get more summer items this coming month. Plus the less I buy now, the less I have to move one more time.
