Express Polka Dot Jeans

Express Polka Dot Jeans

Express is a great store but it can be very expensive. However, they have awesome sales! These amaze balls polka dot jeans were twenty dollars! The light color is a departure from my dark wash and perfect for summer. The shoes were a great find from my closet! Ladies don't be afraid to re wear items from your wardrobe.

The crop top is from H&M and it was Five dollars! STEAL! And the super cute hat is Forever21. Forever 21 is a great place for accessories (even if you're over 21).

Because I wanted to keep it simple, I only accessorized with a bracelet attached to three rings. The bracelet is from H & M and costs a whopping five dollars.

Wear to Work

Dressing for work can be boring. Give your look some summer spice with bold prints and bright colors...

Some quick tips for styling yourself on a budget:

Shop sales! Sales are constant at stores like Macy's and other department stores.

Don't sleep on discount retailers! As a child, I hated TJ Maxx. It was the most boring store! Now it's my favorite place ever. It's a one stop shop and if you're willing to hunt you can find some real gems.

Thrift It! These sweet old lady earrings were an awesome thrift store find. $8.00! can't beat it.

This look was perfect for a summer day at work. The layers are perfect for any climate situation:  jacket for air conditioned spaces can be removed for an outside lunch. 

The clutch is a bit small and impractical for work but keep it in your car for dinner and drinks after hours.

I know that we're on a budget, but I want to stress the importance of investing in STAPLES! if you want a few trendy pieces, that's fine but keep the cost low. Spend your money on items that will last and can be worn with multiple looks.

I hope you guys enjoy!
