Sheer Mystery

You ask what am I doing with an overcoat in the middle of the Summer? Whatever floats your boat, or should I say coat? L-O-L. It’s the perfect Summer coat: sheer, light, and full of dramas (aka the duster).

What’s lying underneath? A swimsuit turned bodysuit. Summer Fridays are in full effect at work and who knows where the early exit will lead you. Pool parties are a thing in the city, so why not dive right in after you punch out? I decorated my lower half in light denim flares. Light blue denim is not discreet and demands attention so find a pair that ARE flattering to your body type.

I am loving the gold chain trend this season. For this one, I had to contact a few sisters for it, but it was all worth it in the end. 4 chainz to fill up the chest was my goal. More is more this Summer and so I topped off the look with my staple gold hoops. Oh yeah and this season’s obsession, the DVF sandals. 🙂

What are you wearing to stand out on these last days of Summer?

Walk The Line

There comes a time in New York City where you wake up and staying warm is all you can think of. Cotton doesn’t always cut it so it’s time to pull out the big guns in your closet: wool, chunky knits, faux fur, and ICYMI turtlenecks. This Loeffler Randall skirt is the ideal A-line (aka universally flattering) winter skirt. It’s midi length and gives you that body warmth you crave.

Wool can have a hard time looking sexy so I paired a crop sweater to give my weather conscious ensemble some much needed spunk.  As much as I love me some Ugg boots, they’re not exactly office appropriate. If you must, it’s best to wear them for your commute and pack your shoes of the day in your bag (I do this all the time). Whenever you’re feeling sloppy, I recommend to keep your footwear sleek and polished with a pair of heeled booties or one of your shinier, more special work heels.

For those of us staying indoors on the East Coast this weekend during the impending snowstorm: Stay Warm! Stock up on snacks and put those sweats and socks to work, I know I will.

Talking Body

I am so in love with bodysuits right now! There are so many different styles to choose from; from tanks, turtlenecks, to low back cuts, and strapless. This one from The Reformation is laced up and budget-friendly. 🙂 Instead of black, I chose this cocoa color to compliment my skin tone. I never realized how easy going and comfortable bodysuits are. You don’t have to worry about constantly tucking in your shirt! The job’s done for you, lol. Today’s look was completed with a pencil skirt and knee high boots.

Will you be wearing bodysuits this ‘Summer is officially here’ weekend?

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

Welcome To The Jungle

I spent Mother’s Day with the special ladies in my life: mom, sisters and a few of my aunts. I love to get together with my family. I know there will always be laughter, food and more food!

Leopard is a favorite animal print of mine. Every time I wear it, I feel like a bad ass. You can either tone it down or tone it up like I did in a leather cuff, pouch and dainty accessories. It was so hot and sunny I felt like Tarzan moving from one shade to another just to get a good shot.

How do you wear leopard print? How was everyone’s Mother’s Day weekend?

That 70’s Sai

I’m an 80’s baby, but why not live a little bit like my parents did in the 70’s, groooovy. For once, I thought I was in the twilight zone, I didn’t know how much I look like my mom in these photos! I’ve always been a fan of flare jeans, that’s why I still have these 2010 William Rast for Target jeans. They fit so well, it was sad to see the brand go in 2013, but that’s okay I can wear them more now that they’re back in style. My favorite trends are ones you can pull off day and night. I can wear these with a blouse or a plain white tee. I like the elongated look flares give me because I’m a petite gal. As if I needed another reason to wear heels. 🙂

Are you feeling the 70’s trend?

Remember no matter what’s trending, stay true to your style, but don’t be afraid of change.

Happy Friday and have a beautiful weekend!

xoxo, BudgetSai
