So my recent “Budget Looks” haven’t been really budget-friendly, but I will still say it is one as long as each item is considerably affordable on its own. Which I think is the case in this look. I’m just loving this beautiful floral sheath dress and while florals might not be too groundbreaking to wear in Spring, it’s a proven, timeless trend that’ll still have its place in fashion 50 years from now, so who cares if it’s an obvious outfit choice?
Spring time is the perfect time to get your nautical on! Personally, I’m a big fan of anything nautical because I grew up on the coast line, so anything with navy stripes or anchors on it is a win in my book. I felt like doing a look based on the nautical theme today and while the result may not be exactly a “budget” look, most of the items are relatively affordable on their own. Gotta love Topshop for those amazing red-navy-white platform sandals, right? I’m totally obsessed with them.

I have to admit this ain’t my best budget look in terms of the “budget” part; because this outfit sums up to a whopping $357.70. However, each item is rather affordable on its own, so I figured I’d still publish it as a “Budget Look“. For the styling part of this outfit I’m quite proud of myself. I know self-praise is socially frowned upon, but I can’t help but keep staring at my own creation here. I’d love to wear this look head-to-toe, it’s quintessentially what I’d call a typical cruise look: a crisp white dress, oversized shades, turquoise accessories with gold accents, summery wedges, fun nail polish and a little bronzer to round it off. What do you think of it?
While doing my daily web browsing I discovered this beautiful draped dress at GoJane and decided I would do a budget look around it. It’s a very matchy-matchy, super girly approach, but I really like the femininity and delicacy of the outfit. The whole look would cost you a very fair $126.70.
