Casual Fridaze

budget blogger style

Since it's Friday, figured it's fitting to share one of my fave weekend uniforms, featuring a sweater I scored on sale for $12 from Mango Outlet. (It sold out REAL quick, but they still have some super affordable + cute sweaters available here, here and here.) It's got some great fringe detail, and I love the loose, boxy shape, which allows for plenty of breathing (and eating) room.

I paired the sweater with some comfy denim, which I scored while traveling in Korea for around $20, and some strappy flats, which came c/o Payless. They're from the Christian Siriano For Payless collection, and I gotta say, not only are they cute, they're also super comfortable--I wore them straight outta the box, and there was no break-in period needed. Plus, they're on sale for $30 right now AND Payless is currently having it's BOGO 50% off event, so it's a great time to stock up on some footwear basics. (I'm currently contemplating pulling the trigger on these shoes and this backpack while the BOGO offer's still running!) Since my sunglasses were a gift from family, and my bag came c/o Furla, it's tough to come up with an outfit total for this look, but the sweater, shoes and denim combo would have totaled around $62. :)
