LA CATRINA de LA Moda: Budget Chic[a]: Easy Easy

Budget Chic[a]: Easy Easy

Some time ago I introduced the "Budget Chic[a]" section to the blog where I share my love for being able
to stay "chic" on a budget.  You can check out my previous "Budget Chic[a]" post from July [here].  This time around I decided to share a "budget friendly" outfit, although I should tell you that all of my outfits are  budget friendly since I have no other choice! Behold, a casual and easy outfit that still manages to look very polished by combining a beige blazer, a basic grey tank, flared jeans and chunky platforms and tadddaaa... you have my new "no fail" formula for an everyday, easy "grab and go" outfit. 
Check out the outfit breakdown below:

DKNY beige blazer from Crossroads Santa Monica $6
American Apparel basic grey tank
Free People flares found at Ross $29.99
tan stachel purse bought at TJ MAXX $29.99
BCBGeneration suede platforms on sale at Nordstrom for $54.99
House of Harlow 1960 sunglasses 
                               TOTAL OUTFIT UNDER $125 (not including sunglasses + basic tank)      

 Therefore, budget shopping is good for you! Now, go get you "budget shopping" on.

Major score on that bag. I kinda love it...

I also love this entire ensemble. Lately, I have been attractive to minimalist looks. They are always winners. And you are really showing how investing in inexpensive basics allows you to create ultra-chic outfits.
