The last thing you want to do when you are stressed out with money (or anything!) is show it all over your body. That little extra effort into your clothing can turn your whole day or even outlook around. (I know, I know… practice what you preach ;) A fresh outfit and 10 extra minutes on your hair or makeup can add that extra little confidence in your life.
We don’t all have hundreds of dollars to throw into an outfit we may only wear once… but we can usually find a few dollars every now and then. I put this outfit together on the cheap! It works for me. It shows a little bit about me and lets me express myself. I threw it on yesterday, spruced up my makeup, and felt way better all in just 7ish minutes. yes- I mean it!
I can’t wait to wear this easy ensemble for a dinner out during spring break in 10 days– but whos counting?!
Dress: Rue 21, purchased at Dirt Cheap in Starkville, $10.00
Belt: Gap, purchased on sale, $5.54
3/4 length sleeve Jacket: Old Navy, a few years old (I think about $15)
Earrings: Frock in Starkville, $8.00
