I have a confession.
I am lazy, with a capital LAZY. If you give me the option between heels and flip-flops in the summer I will take the flip-flops 99% of the time. Hehe. I think that makes me a bad fashion blogger. But you guys still love me, right? Right?
Good.
Now that I got that off my chest we can get down to the important stuff. I realized the other day just how bad I am with money. The other day SSBF and I were having a conversation about what was a reasonable annual budget for clothes. I had said $3000 or $250 per month. SSBF naturally had taken the more conservative route (or generous depending on whose side you are on) with $1200 or $100 a month. I'll be honest, $3000 is a good chunk of change but I didn't think it was that much over a whole year. So in an attempt to prove my point to SSBF I decided to change those figures over into percentages. Well, let's just say $3000 is 8-10% of my after-tax income. 10 percent! Ugh.
Lesson learned.

On a brighter note how much do you love that initial ring? I won it through a giveaway over on Fashion Butter and it has barely left my finger since I picked it up at the post office on Saturday.
It is hand carved by the very talented Agustina Fernandez Ofebre. Checking out her etsy is a must. She has so many beautiful and affordable pieces. Perfect for any budget :)

Oh, and last thing I swear. I am obsessed with this silhouette. The slightly baggy top paired with the curve- hugging mini. I just love it. And you believe the skirt was only $20? Even SSBF can't argue with that.
