IF I WAS A BOY

I believe that I have spent about 50% of my shopping time this summer either at the children’s section or at the men’s section browsing for clothes for myself 🙂 What can I say? Those retailers know exactly what they are doing. They know that mom’s and men will not follow trends as much as women; therefore, prices are ridiculously lower at these other sections. Case in point, this awesome graphic tee that I found at JCPenney’s men section for $4.99! If you follow me on Instagram, you know by now that there is not a good graphic tee that I can resist. The other day, I almost bought a Batman one that came with a cape 🙂

I hope that you are having a fabulous Labor Day!

WATERFRONT

As you know by now, Fridays are all about fabulous finds under $50, but I am making an exception today because we are almost ready for a long weekend that many of us will spend at the beach. When I was younger, going to the beach meant grabbing an oversized tank, a pair of shorts, and some flip flops. As I got older, I wanted to also look fab at the beach and started exploring more options. Today, there are some coverups that pretty much look like regular clothes. This one from Jordan Taylor has a cut that I love, the high-low, and the pattern could not be more gorgeous. Jordan Taylor is having a massive Labor Day sale – everything is 50% off until 9/2 – and you know I love a good sale! Enjoy!

Wishing a happy and safe Labor Day weekend!

THRIFTY FINDS

It is quite surprising to me that thrifting was not even on my radar up until very recently. Well, when it comes to fashion. I have bought tons of furniture that I’ve refinished and sold for several years now. One day, while browsing for furniture with my mom, she went to the clothes section and found this awesome Ann Taylor dress for $9! Right there and then, I became a believer.

One of the main goals of this blog is to provide ideas on how to wear affordable clothes looking fabulous while doing so. So even though you probably won’t be able to find this exact dress or shoes right now, I hope that the ideas that I’ll give you below will fit your budget or that you find similar items in your closet and you just didn’t think of putting them together like this.

Happy Wednesday!

THE PARTY DON’T START ‘TIL I WALK IN

I know, I am very late to this party. You have probably seen multiple versions of these shoes EVERYWHERE by now. For a long time, I told myself that I did not want them and that, for sure, would not pay a lot of money for them. Then, I bumped into these pair and, at $33, I caved because I find that these is the kind of shoe that may not be trendy forever but I will always find appealing. Since I could not care less about whether or not a piece is trendy, I decided to go for them 🙂 As it often happens, I was feeling like wearing something comfy (hence the shorts and basic top) and something a little bit more fancy (hence the shoes and the necklace).

Happy Monday!

WAY BACK WHEN

Do you remember that time when all we wore when it came to jeans was the flare cut? Even though I love skinnies, the flare cut will forever be my fave. I rescued these old pair – which is about 10 years old – from Zara a few days ago, and it brought me back to my early twenties 😉 I paired it with this fun and colorful top that I got at Target and a pair of basic pumps. Happy Wednesday! xoxo Sandy PS – I remember when I was little I wanted to have curves like my mom.
