Happy May Day! Go dance around a maypole with a flower crown on.

This spring I’ve been gravitating toward muted colors—blush, cream, gold, taupe and gray are all on the agenda—which is apparently why I just dyed a bunch of colors in my hair. Looks like I can’t get away from my color obsession. I love feeling like a mermaid. 😉

Here’s an outfit I styled with a dress from Marshalls and these amazing new Jeffrey Campbell sandals I scored on sale. Whenever spring comes around, I get so much more excited to put together dreamy, romantic outfits.

This outfit is an extreme example of repurposing old clothes. Almost every single article of clothing in this outfit is two-plus years old or a hand-me-down. The boots are from ~2011, the top is from my sister (I salvaged it from her Goodwill pile), the mustard jacket is also ~2011, and the skirt must be from 2009 or so! It’s mad old. I used to wear it at least once a month in college. And the scarf is my mother’s.

It’s always a challenge putting together solid outfits on a tight budget, but it’s also fun and extremely satisfying to leave your bank account alone and just rummage through your own closet.
