My Under $20 Clearance Finds!

My Under $20 Clearance Finds!

There’s nothing I like more than a good bargain!  My mom always said I had champaign taste on a beer budget, so to satisfy my thirst I need a good clearance sale!  Now that summer is almost here its time to refresh the wardrobe.  Pull out those summer items packed away, get rid of the too worn, and add in some new items that work with what you already have.

Black Maxi For Summer

Black Maxi For Summer

I’ve been wanting just a solid black maxi in a more casual material that I can dress up or down.  On a random trip to target I found this one on clearance for user $20.  I didn’t necessarily want a high low hem (I really wanted a slit) but the price was right!  It also fit well, the top was cut how I wanted, and the material was good.  Cha-ching!  Deal done!

In like a lion out like a lamb, hello March!  It may officially still be winter but we’re embracing the spring trends, like the pantone color for spring, dazzling blue, for Wear and Share Wednesday!  Jackie from Living After Midnight and I are taking the mark. Major Mix Necklace and styling it two ways!

Even though we still have 2 weeks before Spring officially arrives we can definitely welcome it early with a little color into our lives.  A statement necklace like the mark. Major Mix Necklace is the best way to do that!  It will go with your winter wear now, since sweaters and boots still may be necessary (like Jackie’s look) but it will also transition with your spring and summer outfits.  Investing into something like a statement necklace, you’ll get more wear out of it and its the perfect low cost way to update you wardrobe for spring!  (check out my last post)

Let’s digress… you all know I’m a sucker for Target collaborations and the Peter Pilotto for Target did not disappoint!  I picked up this skirt because I love pencil skirts and the crisp blue graphic print was right up my ally!  So I had 2 new items added to the wardrobe, this skirt and the mark. Major Mix necklace… which just happened to look AMAZING together!  From there all I had to do was add this crew neck sweater from Express, my favorite Madden Girl peeptoe booties and the other perfectly matching mark. accessories and the perfect spring outfit was created!
