Do you ever have one of those weeks where all your money goes out the window and then you look back and go “Wait, what did I even buy?” Well, this was one of those weeks for me between gas, a haircut ,and of course, the pitfall that is CVS. This week I went in there to buy Claritin. That is all. I walked out $50 poorer after buying nail polish, bobby pins, a shower cap and a slew of other things that I definitely didn’t need. It’s like every time I walk into CVS I start to prepare for a beauty apocalypse and convince myself that I should stock up on that extra bottle of nail polish remover “just in case.”Anywho, since I’m working this whole weekend I’ll have a little extra spending money, but I still don’t want to spend a fortune on anything. Here’s my Steals and Deals of the Week for all my fellow broke beauties.
Aeropostale: Jacquard Bustier Dress- $29.75
Now, I’ve got to be honest here: I haven’t shopped at Aeropostale in a really long time. It sort of got lost in the high school transition from Abercrombie and Hollister to Forever 21 and Urban Outfitters. That being said, I was pleaseantly surprised when I stumbled upon this adorable bustier dress and learned it was from Aeropostale! After finding this little number, I went on the Aeropostale website and found a number of great pieces. It seems to me that the company has updated their styles and I’m 100% on board. I’m loving the print and silhouette of this dress, and at $29.75, I might just have to get this floral romper as well..
Urban Outfitters: Sparkle & Fade Double-Slit Maxi Skirt- $19.99
In the heat of summer it can be monotonous to wear shorts day after day after day. That’s why I’m a huge fan of maxi skirts. Not only are they comfortable, but they’re also lightweight, not to mention adorable. When I first saw this skirt I loved the floral pattern and double slits, but I was afraid of pulling an Angelina Jolie on the red carpet with her leg sticking out. After some careful examination, A.K.A stalking Urban’s website, I think the airy, high-waisted fit should make this look completely scary leg proof. Gosh, what on earth would you guys do without these incredibly scientific anaylis’ of clothes?
Aerie: Emma Pushup Bikini Top: $24.99
If you follow me on Instagram (*cough cough* *wink wink*) you know that I recently bought this bikini at Aerie. Words cannot express how much I love this bathing suit. The pushup top is flattering without being over-the-top, and the bottoms have the perfect amount of coverage. Aerie is currently hosting their semi-annual sale, so pretty much everything on the site is discounted. If you’re in need of bathing suits I HIGHLY suggest stocking up now, especially since there is free shipping with any swim purchase. While you’re on the site buying up all of their swimwear, I might as well play devil’s advocate and recommend these shorts which are currently marked down to $14.99. They are beyond comfortable and the fun pattern is perfect for summer. You can check out how I styled these shorts on Instagram (*COUGH COUGH* *WINK WINK*)
