Sunburst Cookies Light Up My Day

Another day, another outfit and yet another birthday celebration. This time I went to dinner with my crazy, but lovely family. Summer birthdays are fun, but tricky when it comes to finding something to wear. It’s so hot, you’re afraid of sweat marks ruining your look. I have this fear every Summer. It’s okay to sport the wet look at a pool or the beach -it’s not okay to look like you came out of water for your birthday dinner. So I put that all aside, put on my brave girl cap and went with yellow, instead of the my usual black. Yellow – the color of the sun and Starburst candy. It’s the color everyone stays away from, the same way they treat the yellow candy in the Starburst pack. I too feel this way about yellow. This was the first time I’ve ever worn something so powerful in color and I loved it. It didn’t wash me out and the silhouette hugged my body just right. I think I’m doing pretty good in the everything, but black department, what do you think? Am I the only one who finds color frightening? Should I keep testing the fashion waters with color?

According to these sources, vibrant pink is dying down, but if you still want to make a bold statement, all things are coming up yellow, like the sun (lol): nypost.com; whowhatwear.com.

I added snakeskin high heeled sandals to keep it toned down as I like to do, especially when wearing an article of clothing with this much attention. Dainty gold jewelry and a vintage Fendi bag completed one of many birthday looks.

How is everyone’s Summer coming along? Are you mostly in swimsuits and flip flops?

Have a great rest of the week!

Love, BudgetSai

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?

xoxo, BudgetSai
