YCS Guide to Spring: Budget Chic

By Alexis, CEO Jr.

Spring is here!! Well, kinda. But it is about time we get in the spring spirit. I have come up with 3 colorful and affordable outfits for you all to replicate when the weather gets warmer. Hopefully sooner rather than later 🙂


Top: Old Navy I Jeans: American Eagle I Bracelet: Alex and Ani


Shoes: Marshalls I Hat: Charming Charlie I Earrings: My own (found them at an art fair)

This first look is casual with a little hint of being dressed up. I could see this being worn to a nice lunch place with a gorgeous outside eating area. Bright colors are really in this season and I thought an animal print hat would add some special to the look. It also puts my own spin on how I wear bright colors.


Dress: Marshalls/ Shoes: Moosties Tootsies at Kohls

Earrings: From Neptune Jewels in Cape May, New Jersey

For my second look I decided to go for the classic maxi dress that I could wear to a nice dinner. A fun colorful pattern always makes it feel like spring time. My favorite part about this dress is the back because it makes it stand out from other maxi dresses. I decided to make this look special by pairing it with these gorgeous earrings I found in a jewelry shop in New Jersey. Lastly I paired it with cute bow sandals to tie the look together.


Shirt: My own (from a boutique in Italy) I Shorts: Ann Taylor Loft I Shoes: Roxy I Sunglasses: Old Navy

This last look is super comfortable and laid back. If you are planning on doing something outdoors like going to an amusement park or an actual park it is good to wear something you can walk around in all day. Even though you are looking for comfort, it does not mean you can’t look cute. These Roxy shoes are practical, stylish, and will leave my feet blister free!

I hope you enjoyed these spring budget chic looks I put together for you guys. Now let’s cross our fingers for some sunshine!
