hello, SUMMER!

I realize that technically summer is still exactly two weeks away....but if you live in the south, you know that it already feels like summer around here, with temperatures reaching into the very high 90s this past weekend.

Since summer is synonymous with cookouts and catching fireflies and pool parties and outdoor seating at restaurants and concerts, I thought I'd piece together a little ensemble that would be appropriate for any of those activities. In order to satisfactorily meet all of my summer requirements, this outfit would have to be bright and breezy and most important, comfy. I think I created the perfect "go-to" ensemble that accomplishes just that.

Here's the cheapskate outfit breakdown:

1. Tank top, Target ($8.99)
2. Skirt, Target ($14.99)
3. Vest, Know Style ($13.99)
4. Shoes, Dollar General ($6.98)
5. Sunglasses, Urban Outfitters ($10.00)
6. Peacock necklace, Forever21 (??)
7. Ring, ATL market ($4.00)
8. Butterfly purse, Urban Outfitters (gifted)

What do you think? Does this outfit meet all of your summer requirements?
