Shopping Spree (everything under $50)

So how does one celebrate the end of a less-than-ideal week? Why, retail therapy of course, and a visit from my sister and niece but more on that later! I did well though (if I don't say so myself) because I'm in need of some serious summer clothing but have a very small budget to spend on it. All of the pieces below are under $50 and after shipping will all be mine...muwahahahah.
The colors of the this basket weave belt are unique and would punch up any plain dress.
Shandy Basketweave Belt $8.80
I'll wear this with jeans on the weekends and tucked into a skirt for work.
Mavia Plaid Woven Shirt $15.80
I like the loose, bohemian feel of this top. Perfect with linen pants or shorts.
H81 Blooming Flower Print Top $18.90
I don' t really own any orange so I thought this might be a nice change for me. The neck tie and cut of the blouse exude femininity.
Spring Floral Chiffon Blouse $19.80
You know... for when I'm feeling frisky.
Floral Whimsy Skirt $15.80
I saw this top in the most recent issue of Lucky and instantly fell in love with it. It's so retro and I know I'm going to adore that little pocket.
Sleeveless Sweater with Collar $21.20 (from $53)
If I could wear a dress everyday, I would. This one is nipped in at all the right places and the tulip skirt is modern and sophisticated. I'll be wearing this to work and I might toss a funky belt over it for nighttime.
Picque Tulip Dress $42 (from $70)
Remember this dress from my previous "what the heck am I going to wear to this wedding" post? It's still on sale (what???) and I just had to buy it because even if it doesn't make the cut for the wedding, it's a sweet shape and it's yellow!
Linen Dress $40.80 (from $68)
My twin sister and niece are coming up this morning and I'm so giddy with excitement! Then, tomorrow, B's parents are coming up so it's going to be a wonderful family weekend.
Whatever you're doing, I hope you're surrounded by people you love. Wait, what are you doing this weekend?

Chiffon, from the French word for a cloth or rag, is a lightweight, balanced plain-woven sheer fabric woven of alternate S- and Z-twist crepe (high-twist) yarns.
