<$50 Outfit Post: Summer Dinner Out

Because I lost my job and we've been saving money for a home down payment, we don't go out to dinner very often. Well, a visit from Dan's longtime friend Kurt gives us a great reason to go out to dinner — and me a great reason to get out of those athletic shorts and t-shirts.

Today's outfit also is great inspiration for something I plan to do often: post outfits that cost under $50. Total. Affordable and cute clothes are out there. You just have to find them.

If I could just crop out my face...

  • White tank from Target ($9.99)
  • Mossimo lightweight skirt via Target ($19.99 - sale)
  • Old Navy satin espadrilles ($9.99 - sale)
  • Retro elastic belt ($2.99 from Salvation Army)
Grand total: $42.96


Leon's Full Service, here we come [for the fourth time since you opened... whoops]. Shall I order the delicious veggie loaf? The scallops? Two orders of pub frites with four different sauces... hmmm. I'm perplexed!
