The palm leaf print has got to be right at the top of my list for “favorite prints” this summer. The crazy part is that they seem to be springing up everywhere and the pieces I’m finding aren’t that expensive. Keep reading to see how I scored this dress for under $10 and where to get yours for even cheaper!
So funny enough, this was the dress I got engaged in last spring! I wasn’t expecting it (cliché, I know), and it coudn’t have been more perfect. Read about it here–he is so creative! I bought it from TJ Maxx for about $10 and the back is so cute, I knew I had to have it.
If boots were made for walkin’ these shoes
probably weren’t were made for showing off. I try not to play favorites, but these babies pop up a bit more often than others. Blame it on my love of bright colors. When summer’s as hot as it has been (especially in Florida), coming up with outfit ideas=finding fun and complementary accessories that often include pops of color.
Necklaces and earrings are also a great way to accessorize a summer outfit. I used to be obsessed with statement necklace, and although they still hold a special place in my heart, I’ve begun to migrate my interestes to long, delicate necklace and statement earrings.
My hoop chain necklace is from Madewell a la Shopbop, and I got it for a mere $26 on sale. Now the next necklace, the one with the tassels, I layered in there for a little interest and pop of color. I got that one for $3.99 at…drum roll please…RUE 21. WHAT?! You may be asking “why in the **** would an adult woman walk into that store unless she was lost?” Yeah, I’m asking myself that too, but in my defense, I had just gone to Michael’s for supplies for a DIY project and Rue was right next door–sometimes I’m tempted with how cheap the jewelry is. On occasion, I’ve been able to find some pretty cute pieces there for under $5. You just have to dig.
