If you haven’t noticed yet, I am kind of a bargain hunter. While I will definitely ‘invest’ in clothing/accessory items that I plan on having for a long time, anything that falls into the trendy category needs to be budget friendly. Since I know I’m not alone in this sentiment, I wanted to share some of my favorite ‘frugal’ retailers. I’ve created an outfit of these stores’ current offerings, perfect for upcoming summer (aka flipping hot) weather.


















Bag. Bracelet. Shirt. Pants. Sunglasses. Shoes.

Target – I saw these chambray pants the other day in my local Tar-jay and they are fab.  Need to go back and pick them up ASAP. And I always love Target’s shoes. Great price point, and for me, they have lasted longer than other inexpensive options.
Forever21 – I am 26 and I heart Forever21. I don’t wish to be 21 again, but I hope I will always love shopping there, because you CANNOT beat the prices for on-trend items.
Asos - Asos has been a recent obsession of mine. Since I haven’t perfected the clothing sizing yet, I’ve been sticking to accessories. Love this chain bracelet. $14? Yes, please.
Old Navy - A favorite of mine since middle school, they have really amped up their style lately. Love this Kelly green shirt.
JC Penney - JC Penney has really been getting it done lately. These sunglasses are a very inexpensive update for your eye-wear (is that a word?) Anyway, I like them a lot.
