A lot of you (ok, one of you) asked about my dating-versary outfit. A much larger portion of you said “dating-versary” is dumb and you don’t celebrate it, so I promise this is the last you’ll hear about it.
Anyways, as somebody that wears the same ripped jeans and a small cycle of tshirts to work everyday and tempo shorts at night, I’m 100% un-qualified to do an outfit post. BUT since we’ve done the budget talk, and I’ve sang about my passionate love for Target and clearance racks, I thought this would be a prime time to brag about my frugal fashionista-ness.
(I promise to never use that word again, either)
So here it is, in all of its $30 glory… my outdated and super cheap Happy Hour Date outfit.
I’m a huge closet-purger, and it boggles my mind how that blouse continues to squeek through wardrobe cuts. I’ve worn it probably 3 times, and hated it everytime until this one. I’ll thank the reinstated power of the high-waisted skirt for this recent win. I’ll also thank the 4″ heels for my odd posture.
That belt has a bit of history to it – In 2008 there was a Columbus-based airline called Skybus that had insane early-bird specials, and after a lot of site-stalking, I snagged a round-trip ticket to San Deigo for $68. Yes. $68. Really. From Ohio. (They went out of business a few months later – act surprised)
So began my love-affair with the west coast. I spent a total of like, 50 hours here, but $68 seemed reasonable for a getaway long-weekend. SD Friend and I spent the whole time doing a whole lot of nothing, and it was fantastic. But anyways, I forgot to pack a belt. So I bought this one. Happy ever after.
There ya have it. I’m going to pretend to be all fashionable while I sit here makeup-free, in my pocket T with a yogurt stain on the boob, and un-brushed (but washed!) hair. Long gone are those days of “effortless beauty”…
