Outfit Post: Bloggers Who Budget – Summer Dress for Less

Could it be any hotter right now? This weekend had me thinking I was back in Miami with the crazy humidity. I spent Saturday out in the sun playing tennis and don’t think I’ve sweat so much ever. Sorry, I doubt you needed to know that last part. Anyways, I had to throw in the tennis reference to tie in my love for this skirt.

Yes, it’s a skirt and I know that today’s Bloggers Who Budget is Summer Dresses for Less but this skirt + tank combo almost comes off like a dress so I’m going with it. And I scooped both items on serious sale to keep it under our $75 limit. Definitely a great score. Back to the skirt though, I’m normally not into such girly items but the perforated, laser-cut details toned down the pleated school girl look. I’ve paired this with a simple tee and heels  for a more dressed up work look but it’s just as great for running errands with sneakers.

Make sure to stop by all the other gal’s blogs to see their full looks. There’s more than a few looks I plan on copying in the near future.

p.s.  – If you need to beat the Monday blues, Madewell has 40% off all sale items; J.Crew has 30% off your purchase with code GOSHOPPING; Banana Republic has 40% off select styles with code BRSTYLE and the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is still on.
