Germaine and I were preparing for a weekend away and I was super excited to have him to myself.
I decided to pack some extra pretty stuff using the fashion tips I had be hoarding from my fashionista buddy Julie.
This girl is so fly…I tell ya. Not many people I know personally inspire my fashion senses but Julie is fly as all get out!!
When ever we get together we talk about parenting, how awesome God is and fashion.
Here are some of the tips I’ve gleaned from her over the last few weeks.
Summer Style Tips for Women | Bold, Bright & Bling
Bling out everything including your feet!!
I never thought about bringing the bling to my feet. I love sparkles but I’m not into the sparkly platform heels that have been all the rage this summer and that doesn’t change just because some shoe designer paints the bottoms red.
But when Julie suggested flip flops with bling I was sold. In fact, in order for me to wear flip flops they have to have some sort of details that makes they look like grown up sandal and bling does just that.
Bold, Bright Colors!!
Julie and I also talked about bold colors and I knew I wanted to bring more color into my wardrobe.
I started last year and this year have added a few more colors. If you are a frugal shopper like me who wants to add new colors to your wardrobe on a shoestring budget you’ll want to keep an eye on the selection at Goodwill.
I’ve found some snazzy pieces with the tags still on them all for under $5!!
Name Brand for Less!!
I am super frugal and still working on becoming debt free but still find ways to add quality pieces to my wardrobe on a frugal budget.
Each time we hit a financial milestone we treat ourselves to something nice. The last milestone was fully funding our emergency fund and Germaine bought me two Coach bags — one for my birthday in February 2012 and one for Valentines Day.
We do not pay full price for name brand items. We shop out of season, Goodwill (well I shop Goodwill — Germaine is having none of it) and we shop outlet stores like the Coach outlet (invite link).
I have really enjoyed putting Julie’s tips to use in my wardrobe and I hope they have inspired you to do something new with your wardrobe.
Which of these fashion tips inspire you to do something new with your wardrobe? What tips would you add?
