I know the trend of the moment is budget shopping, so this is exactly what I will be doing. This post is about how to put an outfit together, and the catch is, it's all going to be around $100 or less. The main objective is to look fashionable and stylish without looking boring, or breaking the bank.
The outfit that I posted can be worn to work, or to brunch on Sunday. I started off with this navy blue blazer ($22 from Nordstrom), a basic heather gray tee ($8 from Target), a mustard yellow printed skirt ($12.80 from Forever 21) and brown thong sandals ($18 from Target). If you prefer to wear heels like I do, you can also go for huarache styled sandal as well ($75 by Alfani from Macys.com)
Tip: Tuck the gray shirt into the skirt, so it doesn't look messy. The blazer will give you a fitted and polished look. Don't want to wear brown shoes? You can wear turquoise sandals instead, like the ones below.

The jelly shoe is back, but in a new and redesigned way. Every time I have gone shopping with friends and we pass by these Tory Burch jelly flats, the popular reaction tends to be: "these shoes are so ugly." However, I am one to give shoes a chance before I completely write them off. I tried them on, and they actually don't look bad! They come in vibrant colors such as bright yellow, equestrian orange, and parrot pink, which will look perfect for the summer season. Although they are cute, there are 2 main reasons as to why you will not see them on my feet: 1. They are expensive. $95 for jelly shoes? 2. They don't breathe. I can only imagine how sweaty my feet will be, especially in the summer time! Will you be wearing jellies come summertime?
