summer on a budget

September 27th, 2012

So, this has been such an incredible summer — we’ve bought our dream house, designed and put in an incredible pool, I’ve traveled back and forth from New York just about once a month, and I’ve been amazed by all the incredible opportunities that have come my way!

But starting in May, Chad and I have been massively on a budget.  And after we closed on the house, there was suddenly the pool to pay for!  So my clothing budget has been basically non-existant this summer. 

But in a way, that’s been great — I’ve discovered and re-discovered the amazing bargain finds in Houston!  I found this amazing dress for 70% off at Marshalls, and these boots were under $30!  I’ll take a bargain any day of the week, but especially when life kind of sneaks up on you, it’s amazing to find designer pieces at lower prices! 

Marshalls dress and boots, Cult Gaia headband, R&Em bag (similar), Foster Grant sunglasses.
