Stars and Stripes

I'm not going to pretend that I'm a super patriotic person, but for some reason I just want to rock those stars and stripes this summer. I started looking around for some affordable finds just in time for the 4th of July.

I've been eyeing this tank for a while. It's from Target, and only $10 right now! Unfortunately, it is only in stores, and I could not find it at mine. If you've ever been to a Target in Brooklyn, you know they're a disaster. Hopefully you'll have better luck than me!

This fringe tee is probably a little much for me, but so adorable! I can just imagine them with some denim shorts and cowboy boots...missing Texas much? It's only $12.80 at Forever 21. Perfect for picnics and fireworks.

Another blue star print item. I am kind of obsessed with this skirt. Throw in that it is only $6.49 right now at Charlotte Russe, and I'm in heaven. It can easily be dressed up or down. Plus, these bandage-y skirts make my big butt look good!

I want to wear this striped zip top with the skirt above. I'm all about shades of blue. This top is on sale for $15--that would be a whole outfit for under $25. These two pieces would clearly be worn again and again. This top can go from work under a blazer to date night to picnic in the park.

Going to something a little more formal? This Mudd lace dress is completely adorable. If you want to be very patriotic, switch out the belt for a red or white one. The dress also comes in white, but that can be a risky color choice for July 4th activities. Plus, this dress will easily transition to fall and winter. Add some boots, tights, and a sweater. Perfect for any season. Right now this dress is $31.99 at Kohl's, but they're always having a sale or discount with your Kohl's card.
Speaking of belts, this one is the perfect color combination. It's red, white, navy, and gray. I love the vintage feel from the braided look. Only $5.80 at Forever 21! 

I realize I've been neglecting red here, but there is just a ton of cute blue stuff out right now! This red pleated dress is cute and great for a variety of events. You can even pair it with the belt above! It's $34.99 at Kohl's.

I can't help but post this two tone wedge. It's only $24.99 at Kohl's. A lot of the reviews mention that it's comfortable, which is a must for anyone who walks a lot. Wedges are the best because you don't get stuck in sidewalk cracks or fall through subway grates. Even better when a pair of shoes doesn't cost you a whole paycheck!

This stars and stripes scarf is quirky and fun. This will instantly turn your outfit into a July 4th celebration (as long as you aren't dying from heat). It's $19.99 at ModCloth.

Happy Independence Day!

Urban Outfitters Sale!

Urban Outfitters is having a great sale right now. If that doesn't make my heart beat faster, I don't know what will. There is a lot of fun summer clothing and accessories for $20 and under! (Sorry in advance for the small pictures from their site.)

This elephant shirt is adorable. It could be paired with shorts, pants, or a skirt. Very laid back, but still funky. It's only $19.99 right now. 

I have a confession--I am obsessed with pink clothing/shoes/everything. I want these shorts. They add a fun pop of color to any outfit. Once again, only $19.99.

I just about squealed when I saw that this skirt is only $9.99! It looks perfect for a casual day out, or dress it up for the evening time. I love stripes, especially cheap stripes. 

I'm pretty sure it's safe to say that I have some eclectic taste. This sweater is right up my alley. I want this to wear with shorts, over dresses, pretty much for anytime, anywhere. I am crazy in love. (Only $9.99!)

In the summer I'm all about the bandeau bra. This one is a bright color and lace, win-win situation. Bandeaus are perfect under those racerback or spaghetti strap tanks. This adds a flirty bit of color and cuts out the annoying constriction of a regular strapless bra. $9.99.

Looking for just a little bit of literal summer for your wardrobe? This shell ring is so much fun. It comes in three different styles. It's $9.99, and a whole lot easier than trying to make a hole in your own shell. 

There is a ton more sale stuff at incredible prices, so head over to Urban Outfitters to check it out. Free shipping on orders over $50. You can return anything you don't like to stores--always a plus! 

Yes, you need to shop this.

Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo is a great holiday. No presents, no stress, just fun and celebrating Mexico. Thank you to them for all of the amazing food. And tequila. Now, what to wear to join the party?   

This dress has a fun, bright color combination, without being too literal. You can wear it as a dress, or easily cover the bottom with a skirt and make it into a top. Plus, it's only $9.80. How can you resist that price?

This top is on sale right now for $15.99.

I kind of love this scarf. It's just the right amount of festive. It's only $6.80, and will look cute all through spring and summer. 

The pattern on these wedges is great, and so is the braid at the bottom. At only $19.99, they're a great summer investment. Wedges are always a good choice over other heels if you plan on indulging in a few margaritas or tequila shots! 

Target has a ton of espadrille flats that you'll want to wear all summer long. They're only $16.99, so you won't feel bad buying them in multiple colors! 

If you want something a little more crazy, Party City has a ton of sombreros. There are even costumes if that's your thing!

asos final clearance

There is a final clearance sale happening at AND you can get an extra 10% off of your purchase by entering EXTRATEN at checkout. They don't say how long this is going on, but it is music to my ears. Oh yeah, and did I mention that they have FREE shipping both ways? Let's start shopping...

I have been eyeing this dress for a while. It is only $10.34 now! Too bad they only have L or XL left, otherwise I would.

Okay, I am not pregnant and I don't plan on being anytime soon, but this site has some freakin' cute maternity clothes. If I am ever pregnant in the future, I will be shopping here. This dress is now $24.13.

Not sure why, but I am kind of in love with these floral oxfords. I love oxfords in general, and the pattern on these takes me back to the 90s. I'm pretty sure I had a vest that looked exactly like that. Plus, $25 for flats is always a good deal.

If there is one thing I love, it's sequins. I don't know why, but anything glittery attracts me...I'm like a weasel or something. Anyway, this skirt is adorable! Sequins can be tricky because there is a fine line between fun and tacky. Perfect for a night out. $31 on sale.
