You’re headed on vacation or have a summer party coming up and want a new fun dress for the occasion. But if you give a girl a new dress, she’ll need a fun colorful clutch to carry all of her things. Next thing you know, you are down a rabbit hole and spending $300 on a cute sundress and accessories. My husband usually tends to yell “whoa” at this point. Spending is halted and I am brought back to the reality of paying for a mortgage and preschool. I was headed to the RewardStyle Conference where we had two themed outfit changes a day, if not more. I felt like I needed all of these new clothes. I had set a budget for myself from the beginning and I was sticking to it. Randomly, I stumbled upon an online store called ASOS. My fashion and budget dreams had just come alive. What made this shopping experience even better was that I did pay a tad bit extra ($19 to be exact) to have free two day shipping for an entire year! Amazon Prime can’t even top that.
I found this cute sundress and knew it would be perfect for the pool party that night. This red number is also perfect for a resort/beach vacation or outdoor wedding. Here is what sealed the deal for me when buying this dress. One, this cute sundress is only $60. Two, the amazing quality. This sundress is made of a nice weight red linen fabric. I was afraid the linen would be a wrinkled mess and after being balled up on my floor for a week, I could probably put it on and wear it out right now.
The border of this cute sundress has a hot pink grosgrain ribbon and a halter style neckline. The ruffled cold shoulder, fit and flare shape and perfect length didn’t hurt either.
Neutrals are so “in” right now and all everyone seems to want to wear is blush, nude, white and gray. If there is one thing you need to know about me, it’s that I am not a great rule follower. I feel like rules are made to be broken as long as it’s not illegal. I’m too old to go to jail and sleep on a hard surface for 24 hours. So I broke the neutral rule and had to find an even brighter, more fun, more eye catching clutch. Bingo, did I find it. This embroidered pom pom clutch from T & J Designs is GORGEOUS! It also fit the bill perfectly. The colors were vibrant and the detailing was amazing. Here is where you get the deal and get a dress and clutch for under $100. If you enter your email on the T & J Designs website, you get 15% off. That takes the price from $38 to $32. So $60 + $32 is only $92. Shipping is also FREE.
P.S. Shipping was fast! I think my clutch arrived in 4 or 5 days.
The last accessory I added were these fun ball drop earrings. These earrings are a HUGE hit and sell out frequently. Here is a great alternative that is also on sale for $22. They come in a a wide array of fun colors as well. I will keep checking for restocks! They were over the $100 budget but I wore them with other dresses that weekend as well. They are lightweight and matched the pink grosgrain ribbon to a T. These earrings also look amazing with a little black dress or anything cobalt blue, yellow, green and white. I previously owned these nude sandals but any nude sandal will work with this cute sundress. I am addicted to nude shoes. They just lengthen your legs and make those stems look amazing. However, I did bust out of my nude shoe rut and just bought these black sandals on sale for $49.
