This post requires you to use your own jeans. Normally, I prefer to create the full outfit, but sometimes you just have to rely on a piece already in your closet. I liked the pieces I found so much that I didn't want to look for cheaper alternatives.
This outfit is from last weekend. Yes, I took this photo with my phone in the restroom of a Mexican restaurant. I figured it was a good idea since I hadn't shown you guys my Sunday Splurge over the knee boots with an outfit of mine. So here's what I put together:
Unfortunately, since the boots were a splurge, the outfit doesn't stay under $100, but it does feature some really inexpensive pieces.
Jacket: Sears, 6 years ago, I have no idea how much I paid for it, but it was likely under $20.

In my last OOTD post, I had failed to find a dress for an upcoming beach wedding in Mexico. I had spent nearly three hours shopping for one and came home with a totally different outfit instead. I decided this Saturday to try again. I didn't really have the energy to spend another three hours shopping, but I sucked it up and headed to the mall.
Lo and behold, I found my dress at my first stop, Macy's. I tried on two dresses, one I liked, and one I liked more, but it was a little off in the bra cups. I decided to size up and see how that worked... and whaddya know, it worked!
Here's the dress I found:
It is this XOXO dress, which was $79.00 on sale for 40% off, so I took it home for around $50 after tax. The necklace-thing was just hanging with it and I really wasn't sure what it was. I tied it around my waist, but that looked silly, so I tied it around my neck. I only now confirmed that I did the correct thing when I found the dress online. I'm not sure if I'll wear the necklace-thing for the wedding. I think I'd prefer a long layered gold necklace like this.
I still have to figure out what shoes I'll wear. Any suggestions?
(I was going to add another outfit to this post, but I think I'll save it for another day!)
