Purple Pearl

According to me,
although I'm on a tight budget, this headband was a good purchase. It was one of my new purchases (mentioned in this post) and it has served me well so far. I love the design of it, but what I really love is that it's loose and stays on my head! A lot of headbands either give me headaches or slip right off my head. I'm happy I've found the perfect one!
Today's outfit was meant to be as cool and comfortable as possible. My drive to work is around 40 minutes, and my car doesn't have air conditioning. So, dressing cool is a mandatory thing. Opening the windows really does nothing when it's so humid and hot out. But oh well, I'm just happy I have access to a car!
In regards to my recent announcement of putting myself on a fashion budget, I've changed it a bit. My income isn't the exact same every pay day. I work a part-time hourly job so it can vary quite a bit. I've decided to budget myself based on percentages. Sadly, only 15% goes towards fashion. Hopefully this will force me to really think about what I'm buying. Wish me luck!

Dress: Target
Shoes: Payless
Belt: Khol's
Headband: Forever 21
Earrings: Target
Watch: Fossil
Ring: Forever 21
