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

Hearts On Hearts On Hearts

Feeling oh so lovey dovey on this Friday afternoon, passing by Bleeding Hearts, the love wall by James Goldcrown on Mott Street and Broome.

It’s not the first time I wear this dress, but here I wanted to add gold accents to my all black all the time outfit. A neutral lip, bright red nails and my hair down finished what I like to call a modern day Audrey Hepburn.

Happy Friday and Happy Weekend!

xoxo, BudgetSai

Mod-ri Gras

It’s been a week since Fat Tuesday, but finally here is my Mardi Gras look. Instead of decorating the office with hearts all over for Valentine’s Day I went a tad bit more festive this year with purple, green and gold. There is something about decorating that boosts up my mood instantly. Mardi Gras is not just for party animals, but a way to celebrate life and enjoy it with other people. What holiday isn’t about celebrating life really? This Winter, oh you Winter -has not been an easy one, but I put all that aside and went with a purple mini which for me isn’t so mini (remember I’m 5 feet and a little something), a new turtleneck to add to the family, and some knee high boots for a complete mod look. Can’t forget the beautiful masks we played around with that were provided by my lovely co-worker.

How do you all think I pulled off the masked mod look? 

xoxo, BudgetSai
