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.

First let me start off by saying that I really, really love cobalt blue. It’s such a flattering, deep and intense color. Another thing I also really, really love are shift dresses. For me, they’re infinitely feminine and elegant. Upon browsing NORDSTROM’s newest arrivals today I discovered this cobalt blue shift dress and it was all over for me. I was obsessed. So much that I had to create a budget look around this dress. I know the red bowed accessories might be a little too matchy-matchy for some of you, but I find it kind of charming in this case. Let me know what you think.
