Thrifty Thursday (Vol. 3)- A Day Early!

For today’s Thrifty Thursday, I’ve rounded up some of my fave outfits that are on major markdown!  If only I could wait until everything is on sale before I buy…  It’s okay, though.  I have been getting some major wear out of these pieces!  And now you can, too, for super affordable prices!  (I decided to publish this post a little early because the stock of some of these items is dwindling.)

$22 Maxi Dress

I have been loving the black and white color combo lately!  It’s always in style!  So you cannot go wrong with this $22 ruffle maxi dress (It runs TTS, but I think, there is limited selection left!).  I’m going to have this one in my summer wardrobe for a very long time.

Tiered Floral Maxi Dress- Extra 30% off with code SHOPNOW

I wore this pretty floral dress on a date night with the hubby.  I was initially drawn to the dress because of its pretty pink color, but the style is really cute, too!  Plus, I envision wearing it throughout fall with a denim jacket or cozy cardigan.  This dress makes for a seamless transition from summer to fall.

The Best Two-Piece Set (Can be purchased as separates)

While browsing the store, I first laid eyes on (and knew I had to have) this beautiful pineapple midi skirt, but then I spotted the matching top! I usually don’t like to match too much, but this set totally works. (See me wearing the top with my fave mom shorts below.)  These pieces are timeless, and I will be wearing them for many years to come.

The skirt is originally $128, but you can get it for $62.99 with code SHOPNOW.  The top’s original price is $75, but for you, it’s $36.34.  The quality and fit of both pieces is flawless and TTS.  (The top runs every so slightly on the larger side, so size down if in between.  I’m comfortable in a 4 here.)

Fun Earrings

Pom poms and tassels are all the rage right now, and for good reason. They are just so stinkin’ cute!  You can snag the pom pom hoops  on sale for about $25, and the super versatile tassel earrings for under $24.  Plus, the tassels come in a whopping 7 other hues!

Gingham Top for $18

I love gingham, and I love peplum, so this gingham smock cami is a no-brainer.  And at $18, so is the price.  The only downside is that there are only a few sizes left to choose from.

Bright and Cheery Off-the-Shoulder Top- $22

How fun are these colors an stripes!  This top makes a huge fashion statement with zero effort.  If you want to look like you’ve got your fashion sense together, this top will achieve that!  A blogger friend of mine even ordered on after she saw mine, and she loves it, too!

Polka Dot Jumpsuit- Under $100

I wore this chic jumpsuit to Mother’s Day Brunch.  It’s such a chic little investment because black and white dots never go out of style, and the jumpsuit flatters any body type.  Also, you can wear this number on just about any occasion with various accessories.  I highly recommend this one!  (Runs slightly  large- size down.)  Totally en vogue!
