As many of you know, I consider myself a true recessionista. I'm upfront about my thrifting hobby and shameless acceptance (and appreciation) of hand-me-downs. I rarely indulge in fast fashion, but there are so many good trends this spring. So I thought I'd share what's on my wish list for the season, still recessionista approved at $100 or less. And since I'm a little late with my roundup—cut me some slack, people, it's still 40 degrees in New York—some of these pieces are already on sale. Plus you can bet I'll be keeping my eyes peeled at secondhand shops, because what goes around always comes back around.
Two-piece set // Lulu's // $72
I'll also be pulling out the crop-and-pant set my mom sewed for me last spring.
Floral mule sandals // Zara // $90
Off-the-shoulder top // Pixie Market // $89
Cat-eye shades // Go Jane // $8
Cami slip-dress // ASOS // $37
This can hardly be considered a splurge, with all of the layering capabilities.
Denim culottes // Express // $70
Because face it: They aren't going away.
Floral jumpsuit // Nordstrom // $76
Bucket bag // J. Crew // $98
