I Think I'm in Love...

Top: Courtesy of Spotted Moth // Shorts: Old // Earrings: Target, $10 // Bracelet: Forever 21, $8 // Shoes: gojane.com, $25

... with two new items featured in this outfit. First up, this down-to-earth yet delightfully dramatic top from Spotted Moth. The voluminous sleeves and peasant-y feel really suit my fancy. I've been patiently holding off on wearing it pending the arrival of the second item...


My new clogs! I've been wanting to get in on the trend for months now but haven't, for the life of me, been able to find a chic, budget-friendly pair. On several occasions, I came this close to buying a pair I didn't love or spending more than I wanted to. After diligent searching, these beauties popped up. I literally purchased them as soon as I saw them and never looked back. They are just what I was looking for and cost a mere $25. (Note: I wore them with dark skinnies for casual Friday at the office, which is why you see a cuff in the close-up. As soon as I left the office and entered the 95-degree afternoon, I changed promptly into shorts). Hope you have a fun Friday night and fabulous weekend!

I just started reading your blog... I love it. You don't have too many pictures of yourself (even though your appearance is the point of the blog you don't go overboard). Also, it is totally inspiring what you do with your budget! Sometimes I get caught up and depressed when I read other blogs cuz I can't afford any of what they have, but you are bringing me back to fashionably frugal reality and that's awesome. Keep up the great work!

Wow, what a find for $25. I love how you matched the tunic with simple cut-offs! Great scorching summer outfit!

nyc lu -

They're not bad in terms of comfort. The fabric upper isn't constricting at all, but they don't have a lot of cushioning and are quite high. The platform helps with the height, but my feet did hurt after standing for a few hours at a show last night. For the price, I definitely recommend! They look great in person!
