<$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!

Very cute! And no cutting out the face is necessary. You're beautiful!
