Budget Babes: Summer Trends - The Maxi.

Happy Monday everyone and welcome to an entire week of Budget Posts. Monday through Friday I am pairing up with the Sweet Maria of Not Fancy Just Life for a week of Summer Trends where both of us will show head-to-toe looks for $75 or less. We titled these posts "Budget Babes". This week we will show you Midi Skirts or Dresses, Statement Necklaces, Gladiator Sandals, Graphic Tees and (starting off today) Maxi Skirts and Dresses. The best part is that we are having an open link-up every day this week so you are very welcome to join us. =) 
I don't have a lot of Maxi Skirts so I purchased a couple of easy-breezy Cotton ones this Summer. This Coral one was one of the two that I purchased and it costed $6.00. And yes it is brand-new. The idea behind this week's outfits is to keep the main item that we are featuring as a Summer trend 20 bucks or less. The Skirt is a Bright Coral Color but I wanted to play with more Colors so I went with Flower Orange Thong Sandals that costed 17 bucks, an Exotic-Print Wrap Tee which was about 14 bucks, a Pink+Red Statement Necklace + Matching Earrings which also costed 14 bucks and I finished off with a few Bracelets from my collection that cost $18.00 altogether. So, this Outfit's cost is a combined total of 69 bucks. Not too shabby right? Do you own a Maxi Skirt in a Bright Color? Show us.  =)
Maria is showing you a Maxi Dress and what a gorgeous one it is. I love the Print, Colors and Style of it and it was a steal of a price. Hard to believe that this Beautiful Outfit of hers was under 30 bucks. I particularly love her Cluster Long Earrings. Check out her Outfit here.
