Sequin-essential

The Oscars were on two nights ago and I couldn’t help but bring a little red carpet glamour to my #OOTD.  I’ve worn this sequin skirt before, and if the Fall 2016 runways are any indication, sequins are having a comeback!  Sequins are no longer your go to last minute night out look, we’re wearing it to work and beyond! So, instead of going over the top, I decided to pair this glitzy number with an understated white button down à la Sharon Stone. The weather was beautiful in New York so I took myself out to the park for fresh air and a few photos. Who better than my city to be my VIP plus one?

If you’re into sequins and want some inspiration on how to wear it night and day, check out my history with all things shine –here, here, and here.

My best dressed during and after the Oscars has to be Rachel McAdams. The simplicity and elegance really stood out amongst the rest. She rocked that baby pink Naeem Khan dress and made it look sexxxy! Check out my Instagram (@budgetsai) for a side by side of her looks.

What were your favorite looks from the Oscars?

Jump

Ready to shake it in a jumpsuit and sky high heels at the Daddy Yankee concert…

Jumpsuits are great for the girl who is running late! Oops! One leg, second leg in and you’re good to go (and very quick to remove when you come back home all danced out). I slipped into these B by Brian Atwood pumps that I bought myself some birthdays ago and I have to say the 6 inch heel is as comfortable as it can get! Plus the jumpsuit was way too long so the height of the shoe paired up perfectly.

Sorry I’ve been missing in budgetsai action, but sometimes a mental break and some hair touch ups is needed before I can get back on my grind and on your Instagram feed. 🙂

Fall is here, are you ready for sweater weather? Happy Hump Day!

Goldilocks

From Tulum to the streets of New York City, this time around as a blonde! I can’t wait to pair both my new hair and this denim dress with a turtleneck and knee high boots for the complete 70’s style inspiration. It’s still super hot over here so lace up sandals and a bold lip will do the trick for now. Hope you guys are enjoying walking the yellow brick road with me as I get closer to my blonde -ish hair goal!

How do you like the hair transition so far? Are you ready for Fall trends and cooler weather?
