I’ve done a little shopping lately – given that summer is in full gear I find that I’m unable to help myself in picking out just a few new pieces for the season. I.E.: Sundresses. I can’t resist. I pity my credit card this month. I really couldn’t resist sharing a few of the new items I’ve acquired that I am absolutely in love with! These are all budget friendly pieces! $100 or less. My motto for summer is to keep it light and fresh, with budget friendly pieces that can easily be dressed up or down.
My new L.B.D. from Forever 21. Yes I am 28 years old. Yes I still selectively shop from Forever 21. I may be on the far side of my late 20’s – but my income hasn’t increased that drastically in the past few years. It’s easy to find a few budget friendly pieces at F21 and mix them into your wardrobe with higher end pieces. The Love21 especially has a few items that I wear for casual day-to-day. When I saw this black dress I was hesitant that it might be too short. But it came in and I love it! Figure flattering and simple enough to be dressed up or down. The length is too short to wear with heels, but in a cobblestone town like Savannah I throw this on with a cute pair of flats and am out the door for a dinner date. Just try and beat the price at $14.80.
Worn with my new L.B.D. is my staple Marc Jacobs rose gold watch and the birthday gift from the cop – a beautiful rose gold bracelet from Michael Kors.
I made my first purchase from Lulu’s with this mod shift dress and I couldn’t be happier! The length on this dress is ideal and it is appropriate to wear out or to a family event. Earrings from Loft. Find similar here. Shoes are Vince Camuto from a few seasons ago.
I actually also purchased a black knit dress in the same order that was far too short. It had to go back! But I was very impressed with Lulu’s return policy – as long as you ship it back to them within 7 days of purchase you pay no return shipping fees. So helpful when shopping online!
The last item is a dress off the Love21 line from Forever 21. This floral cap sleeved dress is perfect for work or a night out. It’s breezy and completely lightweight for summer.
The necklace was a sale piece from F21 that I scored for $3.80. You can still find similar pieces on their website here and here. The black pumps are Steve Madden from last season. Find a similar pair here.
