Does anyone else consider $30 a splurge?

Shorts: Banana Republic Outlet, $28
Top: Gap, $5
Tank: Target, $7
Clutch: Thrifted, $2
Sandals: Forever 21, $15
Necklace: Lucky, $32
Bracelet: Random Beach Store, $5

What I love: Spending a little bit more on something I'm not too sure about (Side note- this never happens.  Also, I mean spending more than $5 on something.  I don't buy it if I don't love it) and then wearing it CONSTANTLY because I absolutely fall in love with it.  This has only happened a few times.  Once with my chambray shirt- it was $36 on sale- and that was still a bit much for bargain hunter me.  Second time with these shorts.  I kind of liked them.  And they were almost $30.  And now I wear them alllllll the time.  

What I hate:  Falling in love with a clothing item and absolutely not being able to buy it because they no longer sell it.  My friend Dawn works at The Limited and wears the CUTEST stuff.  Today she blogged about her chambray ruffle button up.  During my lunch break I called multiple stores trying to find it- with no luck.  

Soooo, you should check out Dawn's Blog.  Because she's cute.  And also because I want her shirt.  


  1. Love your clutch! What a great find.


  2. I have a hard time spending $30 too! That's a lot of money for me.

  3. I'm such a bargain/thrift shopper: It's hard for me to buy something "new" or full-price. Only if I absolutely love something, will I splurge! xoxo

  4. LOVE the necklace.

    I know what you mean about spending, when I was younger I thought splurging 200$ on a nice pair of shoes was normal. Now, I think back and kick myself for spending so much!

    Shopping is a game, find the cheapest possible option that you absolutely love.

  5. $30 is such a splurge for me, try tjmaxx they sell limited, and lucky -jewelry and clothes!!

  6. Hey Abby! Could you be any cuter?! Great colour palate here! And I love yesterday's outfit too! I was just checking out fellow Remixers via Kendi's site. Glad I found your blog! OXO Natalie

    PS - Love your hair here too!

  7. $30 is so a splurge in my eyes too! couldn't agree more though about finding something you love and it not being there! the worst. nice to come across your blog!

  8. $30 isn't necessarily a splurge if I really like the item or depending on the store. At Anthropologie $30 is a steal but at Forever21 $30 is a splurge.


I love hearing from you; thank you so much for stopping by :) Leave me a link so I can visit you too!
