I am having so much fun rounding up items for my 50 under $50 for Spring series. Honestly, this is the way I always shop, as $50 seems to be the cap on my comfort zone (aka budget) as to what I want to spend on one item. I do make the occasional splurge now and then, but I can't say that I don't feel a little guilt about it, thinking of all the other things I could have done with the money. I may blog about style and shopping, but I am generally a very thrifty person, and I certainly don't buy everything I blog about here. My recent splurge on a Jcrew purse I had been coveting totally backfired on me when my daughter spilled bean dip on it at lunch, leaving two glaring grease stains on one side. I pretty much had a heart attack. I drove 40 minutes to the nearest leather cleaner, and they said "no guarantees" that they will be able to get the stain out. Plus, it is costing me $55 to get it cleaned! Ugh. I haven't heard back yet, so cross your fingers. This is just one of the examples as to why splurging isn't always the best idea for me! It's Murphy's Law I tell ya. Back to the matter at hand...budget buys! These just make me a happier person all the way around! Let's see what I have rounded up for you today...
15. Denim moto vest
I feel like you will either love or hate this, and I really can't explain my attraction to it. Sometimes the heart just wants what the heart wants.
Great modern detailing with a fun color palette of purple and orange.
I had been on the lookout for a pair of cute slip-on sandals and these are my current fave.
I am crushing on photographic prints of flowers turned into graphic designs. This bikini top is so cute! (Although I really don't want to even go there about swimsuit season yet!)
A cute solid colored bottom to finish out the look.
Easy and breezy just like spring!
These were just so unique-they made me do a double take. You would never guess they were under $10!!
22. Polka dot scarf
You can't go wrong with a polka dot scarf. You just can't. I bet you can't be mad when wearing one either.
So tell me, do you have any similar experiences regarding a splurge that ended up being more of a bummer than anything? Share your stories, because misery loves company!!
