Trendy On A Budget

Looking good shouldn't cost that much!

Scalloped & Fringed

Friday jeans day in the office is still going strong! I mean, I wish it was everyday but I’ll take whatever they’ll give us. Even though we are given somewhat of a pass to go a bit casual, I always try to steer clear of looking too casual. Being in a corporate environment, I still need to look somewhat polished. But I do get away with wearing jeans and a tee to work (I know, such a rebel, right?). I just top it off with a fun blazer and cap it off with some fancy shoes. I’ve been on a fringe kick as of late (see this post) but add in a dose of scalloped edges and it’s a done deal (and it’s under $100). How do you dress up your jeans for the office? 

Fun Fact: You may notice that I am wearing two necklaces: one with an L (for Linda, of course) and another with an “h”. Well, Linda is actually my middle name. When my parents were deciding on what to name me, they thought that there would be a possibility that I’d marry someone who was not Vietnamese. Thus, if I decided to change my last name and they had given me an American name, there’d be nothing Vietnamese about my name. SO (drum roll, please….), my first name is actually Hoai-Huong. Full name: Hoai-Huong Linda Rubin. A mouthful, huh? What fun fact about you can you share? I’d love to know! 

Outfit Details:

Pearl Double Stud Earrings: Ily Couture (old). I found a similar pair from Lord & Taylor for $20! Use code STYLE and save 15% off thru 3/7.

Initial Necklaces: 1) Tiffany & Co. “h” (old and a gift from my parents years ago); 2) Etsy “L” – gift from a friend and I cannot remember which shop it came from…..

Linen-Blend Boyfriend Tee: Old Navy, $14. This is my absolute favorite T (have it in white also – but may need a few more colors!). Use code ENJOY at checkout and save an additional 15% off – valid only and on 3/1 only.

Scalloped Tweed Collarless Jacket: Banana Republic, $88.99 (sale)

Mid-rise True Skinny Jeans: Gap, $69.95. I nabbed mine on sale, which happens all the time. So, defn worth waiting for a price drop.

Shoes: c/o M.Gemi (Penna). Use code “linda201” (lowercase L) and save $40 off this pair or any first purchase from M.Gemi. I also found a great dupe from Sole Society for $34.98.

Bag: Loeffler Randall (old). I purchased this during a Bloomie’s F&F event a few years back. It was definitely a ‘treat yourself’ kind of purchase.
