Weekend Kits.







I recently went shopping for the first time since my New York trip, as S and I are on a tight budget at the moment and will be for at least another 6-7 months. Its all for a good cause but gosh it’s hard!

As you know ive been lusting after a pair of leather shorts for some time, but I can’t afford any thing over 100 dollars so that means I needed to find an alternative. I picked up these bad boys from a local chain store and after noticing a button was missing the sales assistance gave me a discount. It made my day and the shorts ended up costing twenty dollars!

Another item I have been searching high and low for is a bib necklace. All the necklaces I kept finding were covered in tacky jewels or were priced ridiculously high, so when I laid eyes on this one in William Topp, I had to have it. Bib necklaces seem to add that something extra to an otherwise plain outfit and I love how they could almost look like part of the shirt you choose to wear it with.

I’m pleased with both the items I picked up, as they are staple pieces that I know I will get a lot of use out of. I actually wore a different rendition of this outfit on Saturday as well, and I probably would have worn the pieces again today if I had my way. I suppose things need to be washed eventually…

Love the necklace! So pretty, but seems quite wearable with a lot a of plain tops to pretty it up.

I feel your pain about being on a budget. Being a student + working only 1 shift a week + trying to save means pretty much nooo money!!
Maybe start making a Santa list? hehe
