Frugal Fashionista Friday: May Edition

Welcome to Frugal Fashionista Friday!  And yay for warm weather!  I was excited to do my shopping this month.  I wanted to find something suitable for spring and summer and push my comfort zone a bit.

Like I told you last month, I’m a spunky gal, but my fashion rarely reflects that.  So I’m doing my best to express my personality more in what I wear.

You may have noticed that color is in this season.  Walking through the mall, it seems like every clothing store has bright, bold looks in their display windows.  And while I love the idea of bold color, I get a little scared of it.  So baby steps!

Colored jeans seem to be back as well and since I hadn’t worn them since my freshman year of high school, I’ve been hesitant to try any out.  That is until now!

I saw these in Marshalls…

I have a weakness for red.  So in an effort to give colored pants another try AND go with a bold hue, I took the plunge!

I also found this cute and comfy top.

As well as this chunky bracelet that the girls happen to love.  Fortunately, it’s durable since they’ve already worn it (and dropped it) several times!

Put it all together and here’s my Frugal Fashionista look for May…

I have to say, it’s a fun outfit to wear.  And red pants? I love ‘em.

Now, the numbers…

Shirt by Green Envelope Los Angeles from Marshalls $12.99

Red Pants by Blue Spice from Marshalls $16.99


Candies Bracelet from Kohl’s $10.71

Not too shabby, my friends!

And since Mommon Sense is always a family affair, picture-taking for FFF is no different. =)

For your viewing enjoyment…

Okay, your turn…

    I LOVE colored denim. And am terrified to try it.

    You make it look easy and so very chic.

      Why thank you! =)
      I was slightly terrified too, but am happy I went for it! You should try a pair. To quote the bully in all after-school specials, “C’mon…everybody’s doin’ it.” =)

    What a cute outfit. I definitely want to try a pair of colored jeans this year. Debating on red or teal. And you shop like I do, always looking for a deal.

      Thank you! And I love the look of teal jeans too! Great color.

      And between crafts, cooking, and housework, I’m constantly destroying my clothes. So at this point in my life, bargain shopping it is! =)
