I adore this leopard print skirt, it is so comfy and perfect for the summer. I have thought about finding a pencil skirt in reptile or leopard print, but how fun is this hi-low skirt? I know it isn’t as trendy as it was last year and I know a lot of people aren’t fans of this trend in general, but I like this skirt because it is a subtle high-lo style, not above my knees and then all the way to my feet in the back. Add an adorable peach bow-tie blouse and belt and I was set.
This is my second outfit featuring items from 10DollarMall.com (you can see my first feature here and another outfit featuring a blouse here) and again if you are looking for some affordable, yet high quality pieces, definitely check them out! This outfit in total (without shoes) is only $22.00 and ($62.00 with the shoes) and these pieces are easy to mix in with my closet. I know I will be wearing this bow-tie peach blouse a lot this summer at the office! I could also polish up the skirt with a blazer or wear it out for happy hour and drinks with friends.
Also, just a note about shopping at affordable places like this. I don’t do it to buy 10 pieces for $50 instead of one piece I’d really love for $50. I do it to add pieces wardrobe that I will actually wear again (like my orange blouse). You want to have things in your closet that you REALLY want to wear all the time and that FIT you whether the item cost $5 or $100. Trust me, through my whole closet cleaning (which is still going on….) I have been able to get dressed so much easier in the morning because I like what I see hanging up and I don’t have to worry about whether or not it will fit properly.

And on that note, I’m off to Iowa to celebrate a dear friend’s wedding to an amazing man! Yes, good old picture from freshman year! Can’t wait to see some college friends and have a great time. Hope you all have a WONDERFUL weekend 🙂

The color of this top is SO perfect on you–you’re all glow-y and gorgeous!

I agree with so much you said! I think the hard part about thrifting/discount shopping is to get carried away about how cheap everything is, but if you don’t like it, even if it’s only $2, it’s not worth it. I’ve learned that (and am still working on it) the hard way.
AND YES to cleaning out your closet making getting dressed easier. I am so much happier now when I go find something to wear because 1. I don’t feel guilty about the clothes staring at me because I haven’t worn them in years and 2. I like everything so I just want to wear everything!
RachelJune 14, 2013 at 9:49 AM
It is REALLY hard to say no to things that cost less than $5, but even over the past few months I’ve done it a few times. I am trying to be a SMART budget shopper, not just a budget shopper. AND yes to the closet cleaning indeed! I can’t believe I was keeping so much that didn’t fit or wasn’t even my style anymore!
