Sunglasses Under $30

The summer is in full swing, which means that sunglasses are a must! I hate spending a ton of money on a pair of shades because I will without a doubt sit on them, scratch them, or lose them. But who says buying a pair of inexpensive sunnies has to unstylish? I put together a list of my favorite styles for the summer season all priced at under $30!

CAT EYES

Madison Cat-Round Sunglasses available at Urban Outfitters- $18

You may have seen me in these shades. They are my favorite!!! I love that cat-eye detail (reminds me of my eyeliner). Personally, I love larger sunglasses that cover my entire eye. 

QUIRKY

There is nothing better than a pair of fun, cute, and quirky shades! This pink pair definitely fits that bill. Aren't they just adorable???

ROUND

These are so perfect for the inner hippie in all of us. Pair them with your favorite flower crown and boho maxi dress to get that perfect festival look.

CLASSIC

Aviator Sunglasses available at American Eagle Outfitters- $15.95

You can't go wrong with a pair of aviators. These sunglasses definitely aren't going out of style anytime soon. Always so cool...these are a symbol of summer style through the ages.

How To: Save Money While Shopping

Wishing all my readers a very happy new year!

For all of you that want to save some money this year (and who doesn't want to do that?), I'm here to help! As you all know, I absolutely love to shop...but what you may not know is that I'm a serious sales addict. Here are my top five rules to save. Follow these steps and your wallet will thank me later.

1. If you aren't saving anything in the purchase, don't buy. I think that this is key. There are sooooo many ways to save out there, that if you can't find a promo code or sales coupon you aren't looking hard enough. Wait a week and I'm sure a code will pop up!

2. Always compare the price in the store to the prices online. This is a very important step that I think a lot of us typically do not bother with because it is extra work. Sometimes the are special offers online that you will not find in the store, and vice versa. This step will not save you time, but could save you a lot of money.

3. When shopping online always use a promo code at checkout. Don't only look for a promotional code on their website. If you don't see one there go to a special promo code site like retailmenot.com and you might find coupon codes you didn't know about.

4. Take notice of the sales your favorite stores always have. There always seem to be huge sales that go on like clockwork. For instance, I get coupons for Express and Lord & Taylor every month in the mail...also, don't forget about that semi-annual sale at Victoria's Secret. This is the time to shop.

5. Double (of triple!) up on coupons! I just did this the other day. I went to Lord & Taylor and came across an adorable Calvin Klein dress, which you might have seen on my Instagram account. The original price on it was $129.50. It was marked down quite a bit. On top of the already discounted dress I used my 20% off savings pass and paid the remainder with the $23 left on my gift card. Bottom line, it ended up costing me only $8.48! Isn't that crazy?!?!

HAPPY SHOPPING!!!
