How I Shop on a Budget

Hi everyone! How are you all doing? I am almost at 100 followers here on WordPress and honestly, I cannot believe it. I am so excited you are all enjoying my content enough to follow along—so it means a lot to me!

Today I am sharing How I Shop on a Budget. My friends, family and sometimes people I don’t even know that well are always asking me, how do you have such nice clothes but you confess that you don’t spend a lot of money?

Well, I will let you in on my BIG secret. Here it goes (and you may think this is wacky, but it’s how ya girl stays on a budget): I have little price-points in my head for every article of clothing and if it meets that price-point or falls below it, I will usually get it (and that’s only if I am completely in love with the item or actually need it). If it’s above, well it better be a MUST HAVE or I am NOT getting it. Below I will share my price points for different clothing items that the price MUST fall below. *This is for everyday/weekend wear (meaning, if it is an important event, no, I don’t cap my dress price at $25.)*

Hidden Gems

IMG_8019Happy Sunday, everyone! Today I am writing about how and where to find the best pieces, that fit your style and wardrobe!

The idea for this blog post came to mind, because in the picture above, I am wearing a $4 sweater that I found at the place my grandma lives! It goes to show that you don’t have to be looking in the trendiest place to find such a gem. This sweater probably has a story that I may or may not want to know about, but the fact that it is mine now is so cool to me!

Going Out? Here’s a Look!

Hey everyone! I don’t know about you, but here in CT, we are getting so much rain today! The upside? It’s 50 DEGREES! Last week we were seeing temperatures like -10, so this is quite the treat.

For my rainy day blues, I usually like to cheer myself up by writing a blog post and sharing some outfit inspiration. A couple days ago, I took some photos for my blog with my friend, and fellow blogger, Samantha Glasow! Check out her website, samanthaglasow.com for more!

Opposite to my usual Friday nights, I am actually going out on the town tonight! I figured, what better, than to share a “night out” with you all. Here it goes!

It’s Been Really Cold…How I Keep Up!

It’s officially FREEZING! Here in CT, we are dealing with temperatures that feel like -6 degrees and sometimes colder. I know people from other parts of New England that are dealing with temperatures as low as -30 degrees with windchill (S/O to my brother & his girlfriend who are SO COLD in Vermont!)

Though its cold, I have been trying to keep up with my style because …isn’t beauty pain or something? Either way, I like to dress for winter, so I don’t let the cold temperatures stop me. My theory? Anything you wear, you can always throw a huge coat over and then you’re probably wearing more layers than anyone else anyways.

I am breaking down three looks for you that I’ve worn over the past week — what I am wearing and how I stood the cold in them. Let’s get going!
