Trendy On A Budget

Looking good shouldn't cost that much!

Bachelorette in PTown

Ray Ban_BR by Marimekko_Mia_coverAs you saw from my Instagram feed last weekend, my closest girlfriends whisked me away to Provincetown for my bachelorette. What I am most amazed about is that all 9 girls managed to keep mum about the destination. For weeks, they would try to throw me off with random (and inaccurate) ‘clues’ like, “Pack a going out outfit you don’t mind getting wet.” I must admit, I was getting quite frustrated since I am such a planner! The week of, a few of them even avoided talking to me for fear of inadvertently revealing the secret destination. I was pumped when my Fiance (who was part of the whole scheme) dropped my friend Steph and me off at the ferry terminal. P-Town, here we come! I couldn’t have asked for a better weekend: perfect weather and plenty of pool time with some amazing friends. I am one lucky girl!

I was quite relieved that they did heed my requests. The main one being: NO penis-parapaphenalia. Followed by no party bus. Instead, how cute were they finding me this awesome fascinator? They all wore pink mini tiaras or cowboy hats. LOVE!

Outfit Details: (Sunday brunch at Edwige)

Mirrored Aviators: Ray-Ban from Piperlime, $93. These are no longer available on Piperlime but found them on Overstock.com, $119.99 (58mm). If you are looking for something at a lower price point, you may like the two-toned Aviator Sunglasses from Urban Outfitters, $14.

Dress: Banana Republic by Marimekko limited-edition collection, $130 (paid $97.50-card member perks!).

Bow Necklace: Agatha Paris (French brand), $ bday gift from my Parisienne friend. For something similar check out Kate Spade: Skinny Mini Necklace, $78 or Etsy: LittleThingsbyTCY, Simple Bow Necklace, $12.

Bracelets: (1) Gold Cuff: Loft, $5 (old) and (2) Watson Street Vintage Bracelet that I won from adjewelry. It’s one of a kind. Check out her etsy shop for other amazing vintage inspired jewels.

Watch with Quilted Leather Band: Kate Spade (Cooper Grand Strap), $195 (paid $146). I attended an event at the Newbury Street Kate Spade store during the holidays and saved 25% off. Attending in-store events are a great way to get those extra savings!

Sterling Silver Anchor Ring: Provincetown Jewelry (268 Commercial Street), $18. Cute lil’ momento from the weekend.

Strappy Sandals: Mia (taylor) from Bloomingdale’s Outlet, $39.99 (reg. price $79.99). I hit the outlet right as they were having a great shoe sale. And you bet I used a coupon on top of that! Available at 6PM, $49.99.

Fedora: Target, $12.99.

If you find yourself in P-Town, here are a few recommendations from my weekend.

Dined: 1) Bubala’s By The Bay: Great lobstah roll. Conveniently located across the street from the Marc by Marc Jacobs store. Obvi, made a pit stop after lunch; 2) Patio: Perfect spot for people watching and happy hour. I mean, $1 oysters, shrimp and meatballs? We were so in! 3) Edwige: A great brunch spot; so cute and cozy. A must! May I recommend the lobster benedict? 4) Saki: I thoroughly enjoyed the sushi.

Shopped: 1) Utilities: A lot of kitchen/house knick-knacks. You can find some cute P-Town souvenirs here that isn’t kitschy; (2) Marine Specialties, Inc: Get ready for some sensory overload. From American Airlines dinner settings to gas masks, there is much to look at here. I always stop in and poke around when I am in town; and (3) Shirts N Stuff: In need of anything Cape Cod? Stop here on your way out of town to pick up some sweatshirts/tshirts/sweatpants (as seen below). You name it, they’ve go it.

We Love Cape Code

    SO fun! If my girlfriends throw me mine in P-Town, it will not be a surprise… they’ve already expressed their excitement for it as a possibility 🙂 But so seriously cute, and I adore that dress on you!
