Hey guys! Happy Fashion Friday! I love this day, I really do.  Sometimes it’s hard for me to think of even more fitness and food-related things to blog about, but I never have a roadblock when it comes to Babe on a Budget.  What’s funny about how this look came about is at the end of a photo shoot with my sister I was like “Hmm wait, I want to do one more look – what can I throw together?!”, and this outfit happened.  The “skirt” is actually shorts, the tank is buttery soft, and the beaded vest is a standout piece all on its own.  Together, we’ve got that flirty festival look that is so in right now.

This vest is extremely Babe on a Budget as I bought it at Necessary Clothing for $50.  That may seem like a lot for such a little amount of fabric but honey, beads ain’t cheap.  This vest easily resembles something you would see in Top Shop or All Saints for something around 7x the price of this one.  Throw it over a wife beater (yeah I called it that) and pair it with skinny dark jeans and nude pumps for a sophisticated night look.  Also take it up another notch with a slicked back high pony.  Mmmm.

Hope this gives you an idea on how to take a statement piece such as this vest and throw it over “casual” items to create something really special.


Have a good weekend!
