Sprucing Up Your Spring Style on a Budget

I never thought I’d miss the days when my mom would pick out my outfit for the next day before bedtime, no matter how many times I would tell her I hated that purple corduroy overall dress – btw, she didn’t care what I had to say about it #zerof*cks. At the time, my 7 year old self despised being a poster child for Talbot Kids. I preferred Limited Too and Abercrombie #AFforLife ❤ ❤

Now that I’m 24 and an adult, I’m constantly sending her selfies of my outfits for her approval. Not that I can’t throw outfits together myself, but because I’ve been in the workforce for three years now, and I still have no clue WTF “business casual” is defined as. It’s such an ambiguous term, and I’ve found that everyone has different definitions for it. Some companies say that as long as you don’t show up in gym attire, you’re good. Some would prefer dresses or tailored pants, but not necessarily suits. Who knows what’s going on here?!

With that said, I’ve put together a handful of pieces to have in your closet as a go-to for the majority* of business-casual friendly offices this Spring. I’m also gonna do you a solid and respect the fact that like me, you might find yourself on a lil bit of a budget. Happy shopping!
