Today, I was out and about running errands, after working from home, and hitting the mall in preparation for some upcoming weddings, my trip to Albuquerque, which my sister and I call The ABQ, followed by a cross county road trip all starting next week! :)

So, I thought I would post my casual, running errands look with a breakdown of everything and you will recognize my flower from my Cinco de Mayo "FIESTA FASHION FOR FIFTY" post, but it will show how you can add it to different looks to add a special little touch!

The total look from head to toe, minus my more of a splurge purse purchase that you could easily replace with a more affordable bag, is just $ 71.29 and $ 130.79 with it! Plus, I got a compliment on my dress and flower from 2 different people while out and about and that always makes a girl smile! :)

Black Maxi Dress - $ 32.90

Museum Gold Charm Necklace / Museum Gold Bangle
Forever 21 - $ 5.80 / Forever 21 - $ 4.80

Gold and Black Peacock Ring
Charlotte Russe - $ 4.00

Gold Italian Flip Flops
TJ Maxx - $ 19.99

Camel Leather and Gold Accented Hobo
San Diego Shop - $ 59.50

Pink Flower Hair Clip
Forever 21 - 3.80

Just Out & About

I also bought a few new things at Forever 21, Charlotte Russe, Claire's and ULTA for this summer and all my road trips, events, celebrations and more, which I will share in a summer haul very soon!
