Breezy Days: Cute on the Cheap

Cute on the Cheap

March 28, 2012
First of all, I have a giveaway post on Eternal Optimist.
You totes have the choice of winning a necklace, ring, or earrings!

Second, I don't know what it is with this week...but it has just been one project after another.
Only two more weeks 'till school is done!
Can I hear a...
Hip Hip HOORAYYYY!
If you haven't noticed already, I love me some skirts & dresses. 
They are classic, fit my hourglass shape, and is an insta-outfit.
Ummm, so awesome?

These are a couple of my go-to outfits:
1. Dress, sweater, necklace/earrings, flats
or
2. Blouse, skirt, flats, necklace/earrings

I just love looking & feeling feminine, but then putting on the workout clothes and gettin' sweaty :)
That's what happens when you have a family who loves sports.
Plus, growing up my parents would not let me wear all the basketball gear outside of practice, I still was required to look like a girl. At the time I was of course an angsty ticked off teen, but now I appreciate it.
Top, Skirt: Anthropologie//Necklace: H&M//Sandals: Charlotte Russe//Earring Studs: Francescas

This chunky necklace is a new addition to the jewelry collection, it's one of those trends that I thought I couldn't rock, but I sucked it up, tried it out and now I love them! 
It's another insta-outfit maker.
When traversing through Ceasers Palace in Vegas this past weekend, we were walking through all the high end shops that I could never ever afford.
THEN I saw......
AHHHHHHHH!!!! (That is a chorus of angels singing btw)
The biggest, flashiest, shiniest H&M I have ever seen IN MY LIFE.
And yes, that is 3 FLOORS you see. 

Umm helllll-o. My mom and I totes got some uber cute & cheap stuff.
I always forget how much I love it there.
Only because it gets to lookin' cheap sometimes, a little too F21. 
You know what I mean?
Kind of how Wet Seal used to be decent clothes and now it's poop. So sad!
I'm all about a good bargain, because it IS possible to look cute on the cheap instead of looking cheaply cute!

I have yet to visit that H&M! Maybe when I go back in April. So excited! I get what you mean with stuff from Forever 21. But I recently stopped by some of their stores and they've gotten better. They're out of their black hole. LOL :)
