Trendy On A Budget

Looking good shouldn't cost that much!

Big Girl Pants

Equipment_Bauble Bar_Loft_Arturo Chiang_coverReality hurts; especially coming off of two back to back trips. A weekend in the Jersey Shore followed by a few nights in Puerto Rico. Soaking up the sun, sleeping in and putting the wedding diet on the back burner. Not a care in the world. Now it’s back to the daily grind. Time to focus, kick butt and take names! Ok, so maybe more like answer emails, attend meetings and check things off my to-do list.

Bucking the dress/skirt situation, I opted for these blue hued dress pants. I couldn’t help but pair it with this (new) pink croc print silk top. The print is ever so subtle; an easy way to introduce animal print into the workplace without going overboard. Slipped on my nude pumps and stomped my way on into work.

Hope you are all having a good week thus far!

Riley Tee: Equipment from Marshalls, $25 (retail $168). I found this top on the CLEARANCE rack! Everytime I am home visiting my parents, I hit up the Marshalls in Westford, MA. I get my best finds at this location. Here are a few printed Riley Tees currently on sale:
