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

Dime- A -Denim

As you can see…my denim obsession is alive and well. It’s my go-to look if I’m rushing in the morning or just having a lazy day. Some may call it safe, but I call it classic.

Happy First Day of New York Fashion Week! Hope to see denim looks on the runway! 🙂

Get On Your Boots

The sexiest shoe after a sleek pump has to be the over the knee almost thigh high boots. My favorite piece to wear with these boots have to be sweater dresses, skirts or anything that’s going to show a little leg. I made sure to also pair them with a knee length coat that was going to give the illusion of “coat and boots and not much else” when I walked down the street. I brought out my chain choker to balance out the loose sweater dress. This sweater dress which I purchased at Francesca’s soften up the look just enough for dinner and drinks, not the club. Francesca’s boutique store has a variety of clothing for the trendy City girl.

Do you wear thigh high boots? If so, how do you like to wear them?
