Happy Summer, weekenders!  Today I just had to share this head to toe $100 outfit find with you (including hat, shoes, and both tees).


While I do try to opt for fashion that’s made in the USA and shop small and local when I can, I’m a sucker for a sale!  My rule is I will still only buy something on sale if I love it and would still want it at full price.  I’ve definitely shifted from a mindset of quantity to quality, because I really have everything I need and I tend to buy staples I know I’ll wear season after season.  It’s pretty fun to treat yourself to something new from time to time though! 


I was extra tickled when I found these pieces at a store I don’t often frequent, JC Penney! The closest one is at the Northwoods Mall and it’s kind of a hike. Bonus of shopping there is the nearby Target is pretty stellar; the Mount Pleasant one gets cleaned out of all the good stuff too fast compared to this one.


This isn’t a sponsored post, but I did get to put this outfit together for a fun job recently.  Sometimes brands want help with content creation- meaning they need fun photos that show real people in their products or clothing.   A company that works with JCP hired me to create a head to toe summer look, and also gave me a $100 gift card to make the outfit.  This is what I came up with!


I feel a tad guilty I didn’t iron the ties/belt on the skirt, but what can I say- busy week! (Insert laughing- crying emoji) 

I scored one of the last skirts in store, so if you want to shop everything online you should find it all here: http://liketk.it/2CXQ8.  The skirt also comes in blue and is under $20, so I think I might need to snatch it up too!


I also rounded up several hats $100 & under (most are far less) for anyone else who can’t fight the southern summer humidity!  Shop those here: http://liketk.it/2CW0w 

Thanks for stopping by, and don’t forget to make every day feel like the weekend!
