I have always been a fan of urban city style. That, with my love for music, inspired this outfit (if you don’t get the title of this post go listen to The Rolling Stones right freaking now). I am really digging this grungy, rock ‘n roll look. Lucky for me, it’s one of the main looks of the season! It is almost reminiscent of the 90s grunge era, which brings back fond childhood memories. As a 90s kid, this just feels like home. Feels aside though, I also love this outfit because the majority of it is super affordable. I have a love/hate relationship with Forever 21, but they been straight killin’ it lately. My shirt AND my shoes are both from there, courtesy of tax free weekend. Don’t get me wrong, you still have to dig through a lot of the crap (this stresses me out… too ADD to function) but it just seems like they have had less of that and more of the goods recently. Score. Plus, props to The Domain Forever 21 location here in Austin for actually being super organized. Thus, keeping my shopping stress down to a minimum.

Another recent find of mine was this western inspired turquoise necklace. I went to American Eagle with Austin to get him some shorts, and ended up walking out with two necklaces that cost me under $25 for both of them. Both of the necklaces I bought reminded me of something from Urban Outfitters with similar quality, but for a fraction of the price. Moral of the story: keep an open mind when you’re shopping. You never know what you might find, or where you may find it. Your wallet and your closet will thank you.
