Trendy On A Budget

Looking good shouldn't cost that much!

Bali Nights

marcbymarc jacobs_reverse_nine westSpringtime in New England can be a confusing time of year. One day I’m in shorts and the next I’m digging out my scarf and gloves. Equally confusing are my outfits. By now, I would have imagined myself breaking out all things flowy, bright, bold and printed. Perhaps bearing more skin. Instead, I’ve been covering myself up and gravitating towards a simple color palette of black and gray. This past weekend wasn’t any different. However, the temp was just warm enough to go tight/legging-less. Sticking with the simple palette, I pulled this tank mini-dress. What I lacked in color, I made up in print! I must say, the black and white combo is one of my faves; it’s classic and is not confined by seasons. What are some of your season defying styles?

Hope you’re all having a fab Saturday!

Outfit Details:

Sunglasses: MarcbyMarc Jacobs (MMJ 293/2) from Bloomingdale’s Outlet, $26.49! I miraculously found these in a tray of super clearance sunglasses. Although not as marked down, this exact pair is on sale at Solstice for $89.

Tank Mini Dress: Reverse Bali Dress from Pretty Reckless, $65. I had won a $50 gift certificate from Boutikey at event hosted by Pretty Reckless, which put a dent on this cute little number. This dress is also available at Swell, $59.

Black Denim Jacket: Joe’s Jeans from Marshalls, $39 (clearance). In the same price range at $34.95 is this denim jacket from H&M.

Beaded Necklace: Ku De Ta. This was a bday gift a few years ago from my bestie! For you, here is something similar: Forever21 Worldly Layered Beaded Necklace, $8.80.

Bracelets: (1) Textured Cuff Bracelet: Loft, $4! and (2) Bauble Bar, $38. This is no longer available but I do adore the Asymmetric Silho Cuff Bracelet, also from Bauble bar, $28.

Caged Sandals: Nine West Outlet, $20 (a few summers ago). I’m loving these updated sandals from Nine West: (1) Fenwick Caged Gladiator Sandals, $69; (2) Voli Gladiator Sandals, $69; and (3) Peanut Gladiator Sandals, $49.99 (sale).

    Such a great dress! I love that print and your accessories are perfect! Ugh, the weather has been similar in Chicago:/ It was 80 over the weekend and the rest of the week it’s going to be in the 50’s!!

      this weather is completely manic, which makes it so hard to properly get dressed!
