Trendy Thursday On a Budget

MariaOnPoint | Trendy Thursday On a Budget


I really like the spring and summer collections at H&M. they have great pieces at prices you love. If you’re on a budget, look no more, I have the perfect spring/summer getaway outfit waiting for you. Try on a pair of chic yet edgy sunglasses, never leave for the beach without an easy-to-carry and practical shoulder bag. Have you been looking for a preppy weekend bag? Check this one out, it’s amazing right? Continue to add a simple tee to your look, high waist shorts for an old Hollywood Glamour look, and finish it up with these adorable pineapple flats.

Trendy Thursday: Spring Beach Weekend

MariaOnPoint | Trendy Thursday: Spring Beach Weekend

I grew up going to the beach year-around, yes, I grew up in Ecuador, and our winter is just sweater-weather, but still I really enjoy spring days at the beach regardless of how chilly they may get. It is no news that I love J.Crew but let’s be real, I can’t buy everything there all the time, who has that kind of money?! I love shopping when there are good sales or I like to get the main piece of my outfit such as this super cute metallic shorts and pair it up with other cute items that I already have in my closet or that I can purchase at lower end stores such as H&M, Zara, Forever21… you know the list.

1. Banana Republic conversational small pouch CIAO $28 (also comes with XO, BELLA captions) | 2. H&M sunglasses $12.95 | 3. J.Crew lightweight camp shirt in whisper lame $88 | 4. J.Crew collection metallic eyelet trouser short $158 (such a cute short!) | 5. J.Crew Hayes metallic suede sandals $118 | 6. H&M straw hat $5 (get it now!).
