Bloggers Who Budget: Denim

Well, I'm BACK! The wedding was beyond everything we imagined & more. The honeymoon was seriously dreamy. And we have greatly enjoyed our first few weeks as Mr. & Mrs. off the grid. Thank you for all your sweet words during this special time! 

As I said on Instagram, I will be waiting to share all of the wedding goodness unit the first week in June. That way I can share it all in one big "wedding week" scoop… so if weddings aren't your thing, you can skip that week, but if you want to see all the nitty gritty details, stay tuned! (Sneak some peeks in the mean time through our official hashtag on Instagram/Twitter #McMarriage2014)

I am also sitting on some really fun collaborations that I can't wait to share with you - this Summer is going to be FUN! 

Today I am getting back into my blogging groove with the lovely Bloggers Who Budget - sharing our Summer denim styles under $75. These cut off Levi's were clutch while enjoying the beaches of Antigua, & I also loved dressing them up a bit for our most recent Nashville Style Collective meeting. How do you rock your denim during the Summer months?
Check out how these budgeting babes style their skinny jeans, white denim, chambray, vests, & denim dresses for warmer months ahead:
{ What I Wore to a Nashville Style Collective meeting: Urban Outfitters blazer // tee ℅ Style Lately // shorts ℅ Levi's // DSW booties // Macy's tassel neklace // Michael Kors watch // Ray Ban sunglasses }

FIT TIP: order these shorts 2 sizes up for the "boyfriend" relaxed fit (I am usually a 26 & am wearing a size 28 in these shorts)
P.S. Be sure to meet this month's Blogger in the Spotlight & enter her $50 J.Crew gift card giveaway

P.P.S See how I wore this tee for running errands, & these shorts for a weekend concert (trying to do more "remixing" on the blog in the coming days!)
