Target Style / Style on a budget – Day 4

Hello fashionistas, here is my last Target post for the moment although there will be many more. I wish I could post things a lot quicker! These are a cute comfy pair of shorts I bought at Target once again while coming for something else. I wore it with the bathing suit top from my prior post since it was a beach & BBQ kind of day. I see styles at target that I see elsewhere so I think they are trying as best as they can to keep up with the current trends.

Target Style / Style on a Budget – Day 2

Today’s look is easy breezy, simple to just throw on and go. I love this as a day look or even if hanging around the beach areas.

I wear this crop top with anything, skinny jeans, skirts, shorts…

These birkenstocks are also my favorite. I wear them with any and every outfit, so comfy and easy to slip on.

 Au Revoir!

Target Style / Style on a Budget – Day 1

Hi fashion lovers & friends,

Today’s post is about style on a budget. It’s short and sweet but I’ll be posting a few different looks consistently over the next few days that are budget conscious. Fashion has nothing to do with a price tag. If we are talking quality, intricate details and nice fabric, that sometimes can be a different story when it comes to items we purchase, but you don’t have to spend a lot to look good.

Day 1:

Mission Beach, San Diego. Where you can find me most weekends.

I’m sure you’ve noticed I don’t match. With swim suits, I usually like to interchange my tops and bottoms or buy separates. This is also a push up bathing suit top, which I don’t usually do, but I liked this one and the nautical look to it.

Since the season is about to change you can take advantage of swimsuit sales everywhere. It’s still 80-90 degrees in Los Angeles and San Diego and it doesn’t seem to be cooling down any time soon. Regardless we still always have our beach weather days. I will be doing a lot of beachy posts since I live at the beach half the time.

Time to relax with a good read.

What I wore:

Bathing suit top: Target

Bottoms: similar or matching

Beach rug: Ralphs or Albertson’s, only around $10 or similar: A   B  or  C

Book: The Motivation Manifesto – Uplifting, motivating book that helps you get rid self-doubt and & fear, recognize your power and directs you towards the meaningful & fulfilling life that you ultimately desire.

Bracelet: similar

Track pants and lace up heels


Sporty track pants, joggers, lounge pants, trousers, whatever you’d like to call them, this athletic-inspired ongoing trend is a fave of mine to wear to work. This is probably the only time you can get away with wearing drawstring pants to the office.

The shirt is no longer available as it is something I’ve had for a while but I have listed similar items if you are looking to achieve this same look.  You can also wear it with a tucked in blouse or nice tank. For a more casual look you can pair it with a simple tee tucked in the middle.

If you are going out or if it’s a hot day and have some assets aka abs to show off, a crop top would be lovely.

The zippers on the pants dress them up a bit and don’t make them look overly casual. I love any outfit where sporty turns feminine.

Accessories: I have on a few gold rings and this pretty silver opal cuff my aunt gave to me for my birthday many moons ago. You can buy similar rings at kiosks at the mall. The leather stone bracelet, there is a girl in the SF Bay Area that makes these but unfortunately I cannot find her info at the moment. On my nails are a pretty soft pinkish white color since I was in the mood for somewhat natural looking nails.

Now for the heels. I fell in love with these instantly when I saw them. I was exchanging my boyfriends shorts for another size and these caught my eye. Why does that always happen? You can pretty much wear them with anything. A skirt, culottes, ankle or skinny jeans, shorts or of course you can copy how I have paired them here.
