Weekends always go by pretty quickly, but this past one really flew by. I think because the hubs and I were able to spend some quality time together and that always makes the days sweeter and makes me want them to last forever. You get me? ❤ Anyway, I’m excited to share this casual Spring romper outfit with you today, because it really is a perfect cute and comfy look for the weekend. Especially if your Spring is on the warmer side!
SHOP MY LOOK
So my entire outfit is under $100 which is awesome, considering every piece in my look is something that can be worn throughout the entire Spring and Summer seasons. This stripe surplice romper comes in three different colors and is ONLY $15. Such a good purchase. It would be perfect to wear as a beach coverup too!
My gold lace up sandals are $16. How crazy is that?! And my accessories, my straw bucket bag and oval sunglasses, are so affordable too. Usually I have one piece in my look that is a price steal, but it was easy to put this entire outfit together with pieces that are crazy affordable and true to the season.
Which brings me to a little side note that has been on my mind a lot recently, which is the incredibly high-priced clothing and accessories so many bloggers style/feature almost exclusively. I love Revolve, Shopbop, Anthropologie etc. as much as the next girl. But I find it disheartening for the everyday girl and fashion blog follower to see a blogger whose style they admire only wear $200+ (casual) dresses and $80+ casual tops and $250+ jeans and $2,500+ purses etc. etc.
And while I love investing in higher quality and higher end pieces myself (and not all of the time), I’ve always found it really important to share clothing and accessories here on SLC with varying price points, which is why I also include different style options depending on price in almost every style post. I’ve never wanted an outfit I shared that may have inspired someone’s own style to then be unattainable because of a price tag. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, you don’t have to spend more than your wardrobe budget or even at the top of your wardrobe budget to embrace your personal style and wear stuff that makes you feel good.
Ok, my little side note is over. I never really like to pay too much attention and let alone talk about stuff happening in the (blogging) industry much, because I’ve always preferred to stay focused in my lane, but this topic tugged on a few heartstrings because I never want anyone to feel like they can’t embrace their favorite trends or emulate their favorite fashion aesthetic because they can’t afford it ❤
