Trendy On A Budget

Looking good shouldn't cost that much!

Good-Bye Boston! Hello Bangalore!

In just a few short days, this American girl is India-bound! I was given the incredible opportunity to relocate to Bangalore for work for the next 3 months. I will definitely take advantage of every minute I am there to learn and explore. Dan will be joining me for a month in February and we have already planned our traveling itinerary. 

With so much to do, see and eat, I’ll be taking a mini break from blogging. However, you can join me on my adventures on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Snapchat (trendyonabudget)! 

Happy 2016 Friends!


Farewell 2015. Hello 2016!


2015 was an incredible year. I met some amazing people (on and offline), traveled to some gorgeous places and celebrated my one year wedding anniversary. But like all years in the past, I am always thankful for my family, friends and health. I cannot wait to see what’s in store for me in 2016. I’ll be kicking off the year by relocating to India for 3 months! Although it’s for business, I sure plan on exploring new places, trying new foods and meeting new people. Best of all, Dan will be joining me in February for a whole month (yippee!).

But with a new year comes resolutions. In 2016 resolve to be patient with others. Yes, I am the most impatient person in the world! I also resolve to be kinder. This is something I think we can all strive to be. In this crazy world, let’s try to be kind to each other.

I wish you and your family a very healthy and happy 2016.


Penciled & Bejeweled

Honestly. How is it that Christmas is in two days? And then 2016 is just the following week? With only 3 days left in the office, I need to find the best work outfits to bring 2015 to a close. Instead of wearing reds and greens that are typical for the holiday season, I decided to go bold in this bright lilac number. You definitely can’t miss me in the cafeteria!

Camel Cable Knit

Vineyard Vines_Old Navy_Goccia_cover

Guys. I did it. I finally broke the gray sweater spell! I swapped in this cozy, camel colored, cable knit sweater with pockets. I don’t know what it is about pockets, but slap it onto any piece of clothing and I’ll go ga-ga for it. So when my mother-in-law asked me if I wanted this never been worn hand-me-down, I gladly took it off her friend’s hands. Apparently, my MIL and her friends frequent a Vineyard Vines warehouse sale annually. Her friend bought this sweater for her daughter and it ended up being to0 small for her. Which means, it’s a total score for me!
