Outfit Under $75: Picnic in the Park

With summer job paychecks kicking in, it’s nice to know that there’s some extra cash to be had for a while. But with the new windfall comes the temptation to spend like crazy, and as a smart college girl, it’s best to try to not give in to that temptation. Which is why, if you are feeling a serious bout of new-clothes-necessity, you should shop smart and look for cute pieces that will pick your wardrobe up, but at prices that won’t load down your wallet!

Summer is almost in full swing, but the temperatures in some places are still hovering in spring territory. So when you have a sunny warm day with a breeze, what better way to spend it than outside? And while you’re at it, head over to your nearest park for some fun in the sun - and make sure to bring a picnic lunch! Relaxing under a shady tree with a great book, or a great friend, sounds like a perfect way to spend a warm summer day!

For this look, it’s best to keep it simple and easy with a few extra accessories. A simple v-neck tee will keep you at the perfect temperature, and the solid grounds your outfit. A patterned skirt is right on trend for summer, and it’s just as easy as pulling on a pair of shorts! Ballet flats are an easy alternative to flip flops, and keep you looking classic and polished. A few bracelets will add interest, hoop earrings add flair, and some shades will keep the sun out of your eyes. Add a fresh lunch and a tote to hold it, and you’re good to go!
