To Be Bright captured the magic of the beginning of summer with this outfit. It's time to be a little more casual and little more prepared for relaxation this time of year.  I love how easy this outfit is!  Dress, sneakers, bracelets...DONE!

Look What I Got: May Purchases

May 2015 Purchases

May 2015 Purchases by veggielawyer
The recent Kate Spade Surprise Sale, Lilly Pulitzer GWP sale, Lilly for Target release, and just general weakness ruined my budget this month.  Technically, Lilly for Target was released in April, but I waited a bit to snag up some pieces on Poshmark and eBay after prices settled down a bit.  I even traded clothing I had for sale for a scarf!  Well, in any event, I have to get rid of a few more things in my closet to make room for the new invitees to my dress party.  I definitely went on a bit of a bender this month....but in my defense it was my birthday month!

TOTALS
Total Original Price: $2,106
Amount Spent: $914
Amount Saved: $1,192
Total Percentage Saved: 57%
Clothes Sold on Instagram and Poshmark: $337

It's no secret that I love pretty much everything Ted Baker, but it's probably also pretty obvious that I don't like the prices.  Therefore, I am a frequent visitor of the Bloomingdale's clearance rack and a one-time visitor of the Ted Baker Outlet.  The Ted Baker Outlet is in Las Vegas, which explains my infrequent (singular) visit.  I did come away from a recent trip with this gorgeous skirt.  Every season I love the full skirts that Ted Baker comes out with.  And I was happy to only pay $100 for this one.  Yes, $100 is still a lot of money for one skirt...one skirt that I can't wear to work and need a fancy party to attend to even let it out of my closet. But, it's just so darn pretty! 

Skirt: Ted Baker Outlet (similar)
Top: c/o Yoyomelody (exact, worn)
Shoes: Audrey Brooke via DSW (similar)

April Ipsy Review

April 15 Ipsy 1 April 15 Ipsy 2
Redken Windblown 05 Dry Finishing Spray (1.9 oz ~ $6): This stuff is supposed to give you a windblown look without the crunchy look.  I am not in love with the formula.  I really don't feel like it does anything.  It's not a hair spray and I am not quite sure what it's supposed to be.

JulieG Nail Polish (full size, $4): This was pretty much the worst.  The color was nice, but it went on clumpy.

Mullein and Sparrow Lip and Cheek Tint (full size, $10): This stuff is really moisturizing, but doesn't have much of a tint.  I think it's a better balm than a cheek tint.

Mica Beauty Eye Primer (4g ~$22):  Ok, I said that nail polish was the worst....this stuff was actually the worst.  It's so dry that it hurts to try and swipe it across your eye lids.

Nude Dude Eye Shadow (single ~$3):  The Balm makes some good (an inexpensive) eye products.  This shadow goes on nice and smooth and has a great pigment.  And the Nude Dude palette has more shades than most palettes and is only $36!

Not a bad haul at $45.  Sadly, I wasn't super in love with any of the products.  Hopefully, I'll get some stuff I want from some eDivv trades!
