Adore It? Afford It!-Hippie Gypsy

Don’t you love when you stumble upon a sale that you weren’t expecting? I was shopping for my mom last week and found these darling black wedges from Target that were on clearance for $9! Sheesh. I didn’t even try them on. They were coming home with me.  :)  I paired them with this dress and top that I pretty much lived in this past weekend.

Adore it Afford it-Dreaming of FALL

Don’t get me wrong I love wearing brights, but this year more than any I am DREAMING of fall. I especially can’t wait for oranges, plums and browns, the leaves, the pumpkins and the drop of the 100 degrees hasn’t sounded more sweet.  Although we have at least another two months of heat left I am on the quest to begin implementing fall into my wardrobe.  I picked up these pants that I saw in an issue of Lucky Magazine. They were on super sale at The Loft and they fit so well. I can’t wait to wear them with boots and scarves! In store mine were 30% off of $29.99, but the online price is now 50% off of $39.99. When shopping online I always make a trip into the store to see if it’s cheaper and most of the time it is.

Adore It Afford It-Summer Stripes

It is rare for me to find someone who doesn’t enjoy stripes. Something about the traditional print that simply works for nearly everyone no matter the age.  My mom being a huge fan :)  I find myself always packing at least one stripped item while traveling because it is a wonderful layering piece and can be used in multiple outfits which is ideal.  I put together this outfit for a bbq I was going to with friends.

Adore it? Afford it! Plus DIY jean shorts

Adore it? Afford it! is back!!!! Things have been busy busy over here. Due to my numerous vacations I have increased my work load and have had absolutely no time for outfit posts, but I have still managed to do a little bit of shopping. :) I thought I would share with you some great deals I have scored lately as well as my first DIY post.

Free People is by far my favorite brand, but it tends to be more expensive for my budget.  I typically score most of my great FP finds at Nordstrom Rack, but this adorbs crochet romper I found at TJ MAXX for $25.  It is a part of their swimwear line (which I didn’t even know they had).  It has a subtle gold tint to the fabric and I can’t wait to break it out this summer to the pool with a fedora and some wedges.

This watch I got at Target for $19.99. It is a men’s watch with a brown leather band and black and gold face. I only buy men’s watches because I love the large face. :)

Now onto my first DIY project on AVC…I am a big fan of the high waisted cut off Levi’s jean shorts that they sell at UO, but I didn’t want to pay $50 bucks for something I know I could make. I have been on the hunt for a good black pair of Levi’s jeans and finally found them yesterday at Goodwill.   I cut them and have only washed them once, but the fraying will only increase.

Happy Hump day lovelies!

P.S. What do you think of my new look? My friends over at Les Conservateurs gave me a little makeover. :)

Adore it? Afford it!

Fashion is something a lot of people adore, but not a lot can afford. I thought it would be fun to share an “adore it? afford it!” item! Something that I find for a great deal that is too good not to share with all of you.  A lot of people ask me where I shop and the answer is EVERYWHERE! I try and browse around all stores if time permits and often end up picking up a scarf, shoes, or an accessory.  Case in point, World Market (Cost Plus) in some states. They have great necklaces and rings.  Not so much on your shopping list when you think of that type of store.  The item I am featuring today is from a store that will probably  become a repeat in “Adore it? Afford it!”, Old Navy!

I am so beyond about this yellow mini trench. It is so much brighter than the website and this picture display. I am talking neon!  It is listed online for $32.99, but I got it in the store in Gilbert, Arizona for, wait for it, $13.99!!!!!! Such a deal!

This type of piece is perfect for this time of year when it keeps going back and forth from warm to cold. I absolutely love it and can barely not take it off. Today is a light spring day so it went great over a tank top, but in colder months I can’t wait to wear a hoodie underneath for added warmth.  And what a change from the traditional Black, grey, brown jackets that you see everywhere!

Have a ab fab Wednesday!
