Today’s outfit should be called “the fruits of discounted labor”! Every single thing I’m wearing I found for a hellacious dea (not to mention how fun and comfy it is to wear)!
Outfit: Jessica Simpson palm leaf dress via TJ Maxx [similar here & here] | Lime handbag via Prima Donna’s Closet in NOLA [lemon version here for $10!] | Sandals via Zara | Tassel earrings via Poshmark [similar earrings] | Reflective aviator sunglasses
The lime bag (one of my favorites) was purchased for $15 at this cute little second-hand boutique in New Orleans a couple of summers ago. It’s the perfect bag for summer and I love that it’s also a crossbody. Our cashier told us that Reese Witherspoon herself was there shopping just the day before we were! I wish I would’ve seen her, that would’ve been so exciting!
The dress was a $12 purchase at TJ Maxx just a few weeks ago for our honeymoon. The little cutout detail in the front makes it modern and of course the palm print has been calling to me all summer, so I had to buy it. Plus, umm, did I mention it was $12?!
Funny story about the shoes…so I went to a Uniqlo opening a couple of weeks ago wearing a pair of black fringe wedges and halfway there (we were walking through Disney Springs) the wedge of my left shoe cracked and fell off! I wish I could say this is the first time something like this happened to me, but unfortunately last summer the same thing happened on the way to brunch in Celebration–I guess this is just my luck!
So, I obviously needed to replace my shoes and Zara was the closest store nearby, so I hobbled over and tried on the shoes (they were having a crazy clearance sale) and fell in love with the padded sole (so comfy), wooden block heel, and studded detailing…plus they were only $29!
Lastly, the tassel earrings were a recent purchase from Poshmark for $7…yes, $7!! I haven’t been able to find tassel earrings online or in stores for that matter for less than $30 so I was pretty proud of myself. Been wearing tassel earrings all summer and obsessively collecting them in every color I can scavenge.
What deals have you scored this summer?! What pieces are you obsessing over?
