June Budget

I'm not sure if Franish is doing these anymore but I thought I'd post mine anyway. I've gained some weight this year and I haven't been feeling the best in a lot of my clothes since a lot of them are pretty tight. Even though I've started going to the gym, I want to feel confident and cute this summer. I got some early birthday money and got a lot of pieces. I got a lot of dresses since they are so easy to wear.
1. Grey Old Navy Dress- You probably won't see this on the blog. I got it to use a swimsuit coverup. It's easy to throw on and off. $15
2. Orange dress- I wanted a maxi dress for this summer. This isn't quite maxi but I really like the length. I like the cold shoulder and ruffles. $36
3. Pink Dress- Another simple summer dress. I got this style in a palm print last summer and wore it a lot and this pink is a great shade that will work into fall. $17
4. Denim Jacket- I still have my one that I made but it's starting to wear a lot and the arms are getting pretty tight. $24.49 
5. Blue Top- I love the cold shoulder ruffles. The color will work with a lot of my clothes. $28.79
6. Ice Cream dress- This is a comfy knit. And it's a great style. I can also wear it to networking events too. $47.99
7. Walking sandals- Getting a pair of comfy walking sandals was on my list for this summer. I got a great deal on these at the outlets. $40
8. Hawaiian print top- I saw the skirt first and Mike pointed out the matching top. I like that it is already set up to be tied at the waist. It's such a cute print. $44.5
9. Hawaiian print skirt- Love the print and this is such a great length. $37.50
10. Pink top- My usual pink top has been having a lot of gaping issues so I got one where that won't be an issue. It's not in the collage but you can get it here. $11.89

Total= 303.16 -12.3 (extra 15% discount at J.crew)= 290.86
I've got some good pieces that will get my a lot of use this summer. And I feel good in these pieces.

Matching

I wore this to a Mexican place and soft serve for dessert. I haven't had soft serve in a long, long time. I love this ice cream print dress. It's comfy and adorable. This dress also comes in kids if you want to coordinate with your little girl.
I think this dress will get worn a lot networking.

Bold

I wore this to the awards ceremony. I rented this dress and necklace for the occasion. I got it from Rent the Runway. I'd never tried them before and it was so easy. I love that they send two sizes!

Dine N Dash DC

Last week Mike and I did Dine N Dash. I heard about it through a friend on Facebook. There were 30 restaurants to go to. We did about 9 but the MGM pop-up had  4 restaurants in it. There were two neighborhoods. We did Penn Quarter.
This is a rib and wine from China Chilcano. This was one of my favorite items. I also loved the fried taleggio from Grafiatto, California roll from Sei, the lobster roll from the MGM pop-up and ALL of the tacos at Oyamel.
Mike and I also enjoyed Bantam King. A few of the restaurants had live music and Zaytina had a streetwalker.
I also got to try a few kinds of wine. And an awesome pomegranate margarita from Oyamel. Instead of a salt rim it had a salt foam.
This was such a fun event. Mike and I want to go back next year. All of the proceeds go to World Central Kitchen.

I love the bright color on this skirt. $79
This top has cute subtle bell sleeves. And with the sleeves it can be worn into fall. $41.40
I love the two different eyelet patterns in this skirt. $39.99
This is such a great color for spring. It would work great with cardigans and jean jackets. $98

Spring Scallops

I wore this to hang out with my friend. I took her to a cat cafe. It was pretty cute. I wish there was a puppy cafe. Then we got lunch at an Italian place.

I've been wanting scalloped shorts for a while and these are so cute. I love the scallop on the pockets. They are linen so they do wrinkle pretty quickly.
