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?

Summertime Sort Of Sadness

Although I may not be that sad to see the Summer go, I am going to miss those lazy beach days. There is nothing like waking up on a hot a** day and throwing on a one-piece swimsuit or your favorite bright two piece bikini. Let’s not forget my heat wave hairstyle…

Slicked….

Back…

Buns!

What are you going to miss about the Summer? 

Happy Friday!

Life’s A Beach

Or so I’d like to think it is…:)

This day I wore a sweet little figure flattering seafoam suit by Tori Praver for Target! The collaboration came back out in the Spring and I am so happy I got to wear it before the Summer ends! I added fabulous statement earrings to complete the charming, but glamorous look!

I hear its beach weather again! Have a Happy Weekend!

Until Next Time, Tulum

I finally got to wear my little white bikini I purchased from Gilt last year. I love their everyday noon sales from jeans and shoes, to swimwear and jewelry. There’s always great deals on many known names like Vix -a line I’d like to have more of in my swimsuit drawer this Summer. I can’t forget Victoria’s Secret Swim. They also have the sexiest, most unique pieces every year. This neon one-pierce came to me last year, but not soon enough. Summer goes by so fast! Where are you heat so I can live this life again? I’m ready! Are you?!

Tulum you were so good to us, I can’t wait until our next honeymoon. This was probably the best trip I’ve ever had with him (my photographer on this trip too :). Thank you and I love you.

Where shall we head to next? What swimsuits are you getting yourselves into this Summer?

Tulum Ruins: Day 3

It was the middle of our trip and it was finally time to go see the Mayan Ruins in Tulum. We got on a local bus then took a 10 minute walk directly into the our destination. These particular ruins are the only ones that over look the ocean, a view that just takes your breath away. We spent most of the the time stopping at every structure and reading up on what each “building” represented for the Mayans. It was probably the hottest day of that week so we made sure to bring our swimsuits to take a dip in the water towards the end of our educational adventure. As we were leaving we stopped for some refreshing coconut water. Ahhh…

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Bon Voyage 2014

Happy New Year!

Thank you all so much for all your likes, taking your time to comment and for all your support throughout the year. I appreciate it more than you know.

I can’t believe 2014 is gone and my one year ‘Budgetsai’ anniversary is right around the corner. I am thankful for all the love I’ve received from family, friends and those I’ve met along the way. I didn’t realize I wanted to do this until a friend told me to start a blog after using Instagram to share my daily outfit details. I was always interested in what people were wearing, but people would also ask me where I got what I was wearing? And I would actually feel like really? This? I’d tell them where, then they’d ask how much? And I’d say not much actually. I noticed that there were not too many budget style bloggers out there so I decide to give it a try. I love to share my budget finds with all of you and help out those close and not so close to me look for budget-friendly pieces whether it’s an everyday wardrobe, a night out on the town or just because you love a great deal.

Looking forward to share more of those great deals in 2015…

What would you like to see more of on my blog in 2015?

Below are some of your favorite looks of 2014:
