Maxed Out

Sorry for the week-plus hiatus guys! I've had a lot on my plate--work, family stuff and wedding planning have pretty much taken over my life. But I finally got a chance to snap a few pics this past weekend while grabbing some dinner and drinks in the East Village, and despite it being a million degrees out, I did my best to keep cool in this thrifted blue maxi skirt, scored for $4.50 at a church flea market.

I paired the flowy skirt with a loose, open-side white top from Forever 21 (purchased on sale for $8) and my fave white mules, c/o Dorothy Perkins. I finished off the look with a gifted silver crossbody and a pair of gifted blue earrings, and along with a pair of secondhand hand-me-down sunnies, the whole look came out to $12.50.

Dark and Stormy

Had an overnight summer storm a couple nights ago, and since Koko's terrified of thunder, that meant I didn't get a whole lotta sleep. And now that I'm getting older, one lost night of sleep definitely affects my energy level the rest of the week--I feel like I have yet to catch up on those lost ZZZs, and mornings have been pretty rough. Thank god for little black dresses that I can throw on after hitting the snooze button too many times.

I scored this black chiffon number for $0 at a swap party earlier this year, and it fits like a dream. And since nothing forces you to wake up and concentrate like a pair of sky-high heels, I opted to rock a rare pair of six-inch stilettos from Forever 21, which were an impulse buy of around $27. Adding in my mirrored sunnies from Ebay (around $6), the whole head-to-toe look came out to $33.

Summer Grays

Hey guys! This summer is speeding by, and I'm completely behind on uploading photos. Ugh. I finally got around to editing this batch from my Miami getaway last month, feat. a striped secondhand skirt given to me by a friend for freeeee.

I realized just a few days before the trip that I was in need of a casual crop tank and didn't have any time to hit any brick-and-mortar stores, so thanks to Amazon Prime, I was able to order this one with two-day shipping for just $8.50. Saved! I added a thrifted belt ($0.99) to the mix, along with my white mules c/o Dorothy Perkins and a pair of mirrored sunglasses from Ebay (around $6). Head to toe, the whole look came out to $15.50.
