This past Sunday I did some casual shopping at Gainesville’s local Indie Flea market. If I don’t leave the house in my usual athleisure attire, then chances are that I’ll probably put a little effort into my outfit. Also, if I take the time to do my makeup, then I will definitely put effort into my look. I don’t know how some girls do a full face “beat” and then wear pajamas in broad daylight, but props to them. I don’t have the ovaries to rock that look.
SUMMER IS OFFICIALLY HERE! You know what that means!? Blistering heat, scattered rain showers, hurricane warnings and sweating through every shirt you own! Yay! It’s safe to say that summer can be a little (very) daunting, especially for Floridians, but we must go on with our lives. Although, I really can’t complain since 80 percent of my wardrobe is made up of summer clothes…
As you probably already know, I’m a college student. I’m not making six figures…or even four figures for that matter. I work two jobs and lose half my money to textbooks, student loans and Taco Bell (please sponsor me, Taco Bell). With that being said, I love clothes more than I love my newborn child. Kidding of course, I don’t have a child…don’t come for me.
Anyways, I’ve noticed that a lot of YouTubers and fashion bloggers buy and show clothes that are hardly affordable for the average person. Since they are such big influencers, it’s kind of frustrating to have them “soft sell” expensive, designer clothes to impressionable and broke young adults…like myself.
I recently read a pretty interesting article that said that the top 10 percent of American households earn a minimum of $133,445 annually. I honestly would have thought that that number would have been a lot higher. BUT, opinions on the distribution of wealth in America aside, it’s clear that 90 percent of Americans do NOT have a lot of money to spend on designer-priced clothes. Never mind the average college student.
Now that I’ve got all that information out there, I want to share some of my favorite online websites that I consider to be perfect for anyone who likes to to be trendy, but also wants to save money.
Did you like my title? I know it was super original. No one before me has ever thought of a title so unique.
Anyways, hey! Welcome (back) to my blog! I have another #OOTD post for you guys. If there is anything that I truly love in life…it’s crop tops and sneakers. Mostly sneakers. I feel like colorful sneakers just make my basic outfit…even more basic, but I live for it haha. I’m not gonna lie, the sneakers I’m wearing are sold out. But, I’ll link the exact same style of sneakers so if you like the design of them, you can get a similar pair!
I’m excited to bring you guys my first real #OOTD post! Photographed by my boyfriend, who may or may not have been bribed with food to take these pictures haha. Here I wore a 90s insta-hoe inspired outfit. I like bralettes, but I’m not confident enough to walk the streets with JUST a bralette and shorts…yet. So, I put a mesh top over it. Technically, the mesh top “conceals” my provocative torso so that, hopefully, 60-year-old women won’t stare at me as hard! They still stare though. Older women always judge me.
