Trendy On A Budget

Looking good shouldn't cost that much!

Another Day, Another Chambray

Ray Ban_Gap_J.Crew_Tory Burch_coverAnd so the story goes: another chambray paired with a pair of shorts. Maybe I am becoming a bit predictable with the chambray – shorts combo, but it’s such a fool proof way to achieve an easy weekend look. The boyfriend fit of the button down plays well with the delicate eyelet shorts; striking the perfect masculine-feminine balance. A pair of summer espadrilles round out this super casual and comfy outfit. Highly suitable for my on the go weekend which included brunching with out of town relatives, checking out some property with the mister and a trip to the grocery store. And of course, a few walks with Bentley!

As you may have seen from my IG feed this weekend, I had the opportunity to participate in a Boutikey photo shoot with 12 amazing Boston Bloggers.  What is Boutikey, you ask? It’s an app that connects shoppers with local boutiques, earning rewards as they shop. The app also gives shoppers a heads-up of exclusive offers at their fave boutiques. Win-win if you ask me! Stay tuned for more from the photo shoot, especially the amazing outfit I got to style from Ku De Ta.

Happy Hump Day kids, we are halfway to the weekend!
