In the spirit of series making an appearance again on the blog [man it felt good to write that Awkward & Awesome post], I've decided to introduce a new one for the year in which I am entitling #LIYonadime. You all spoke and said you would be into a few more fashion on budget type style posts and because I aim to please, here we are. Any excuse to shop, right? While I love to add new pieces into my wardrobe quite regularly, I don't love to spend a ton of money doing so. I am a big believer in the under $25 category and try to choose carefully if I am spending more than that.
Because I have been spending all of my free time at Target lately, I've decided to show off my recent bank account friendly finds that won't have you spending an arm and a leg just to look cute. I did notice they are offering free shipping on any order over $25 so now's the time to buy right? ;) Here's three entirely different looks I put together from good ole Tarjay....
1. Day time out and about outfit
2. Netflix and chill outfit
Netflix and chill outfits may be my favorite [not just because they end up just coming off right away, wink wink- ha, so not my life but it's fun to dream] but because absolutely no sucking in is required, white converse are the absolute best and you are allowed to wear things with both pockets and hoods. Winning. This sweatshirt had my name written all over it - well it actually had California written all over it but basically the same thing. A girl's gotta represent her favorite state when it only costs $22 to do so.
3. Work Day Outfit
Because a girl's gotta work to pay for her habits, I'm always on the hunt for professional yet trendy pieces to wear to my job. When I saw this awesome drape front blouse for $23, I kinda wanted it in every color. Unfortunately it wasn't until after I got home and I was in mid-tag ripping mode that I realized I bought an XS instead of a small but ya win some, ya lose some. I think I can still pull it off thanks to the drapey-ness of it all. It was during this same trip that I spotted these killer blue heels and got a little matchy-matchy with things.
And that my friends completes the first installment of #LIYonadime. Here's to looking hot while still having lunch money leftover!
