Or in reality one of the more difficult Saturday afternoons. What one may refer to as #thestruggle, the day after my 28th (whoa) birthday in all sense of the phrase, the literal struggle. Not only was it the Saturday after a champagne fueled birthday celebration, this was the first Saturday without any visitors in town. I honestly loved having friends and family in all month during April but THANK GOD this day had finally come.
The ONLY thing on my agenda was to get to the nail salon. Tough life, I know. Pedicure and iPad, please. In an attempt to mask how I was feeling realistically, I thought if I could pull my look together, I would feel better. Long shot, here we go. So out of the depths of my closet, buried among the distressed denim, high-waisted shorts I live in. I found victory.
I picked up these BCBGeneration floral, ruffled shorts last year right around this time, pre-MDW. They were originally $78 and I grabbed them for $32 at Macy’s. And to complete this extremely comfortable look, I wore my BDG denim, my Steve Madden sandals, my D&G sunglasses (complete necessity), some cheap/fun Forever21 rings and my Milly bag.
I saved about 60% on the shorts. The total of the outfit would have been $841.98 and I paid $376, about a 55% savings total.
