I understand that I’m very lucky to be able to afford to go shopping at all, nevermind buying high end goods. I was always under the impression that I had to be a millionaire to ever be able to afford any nice clothes. And I think a lot of people think that way too. High end fashion has become something that seems almost unattainable thanks to the rise of cheap fast fashion. However, it is possible to find cheap high end fashion that’s budget-friendly and high quality. Every month, I’ll be picking some great high end pieces that are $100 or less. I hope this helps those with less disposable income still build the high end closet of their dreams. This post contains affiliate links. If you’re wondering why, read this.
Let’s face it: I’m the kind of girl that wears black all year round, including when it’s 100 degrees in the desert. I will always rock that black spring outfit. Still, I’ve managed to find a way to stay cool while wearing my favorite color.
Okay, so maybe a floral grunge look for spring isn’t groundbreaking (thanks to The Devil Wears Prada), but it is a solid choice. The past few seasons, florals have been staples for both fall and spring outfits, making them a great investment you can wear all year round. I’m actually not a big fan of spring and summer since I can’t wear all the layers I love. If you’re like me and not a fan of the heat, you can give your outfit a grungy edge while still staying cool.
My boyfriend’s tattoo artist is in Tuscon, so we’ve been spending a lot of Saturdays there. While he gets tattooed, I get to explore the downtown area. For whatever reason, a lot of people I’ve talked to in Phoenix aren’t really into Tuscon, but I think it’s a pretty cool spot. The downtown area definitely has a cool artsy vibe.
I can’t get over how beautiful it is out here in the desert. Every day, I feel like I’m waking up inside a picture. Even just driving on the freeway in the morning reveals beautiful landscapes. There definitely was nothing like this in southern California.

I’m writing this on the day of the equinox, so spring is officially here. Still, even out here in the desert, you can get away with a light sweater. I’m definitely going to be taking advantage of this for as long as I can in this striped sweater. I know sweltering heat is just around the corner.
Overall Rating: ☾☾☾ If you noticed in the picture that my Milk Blur Stick is half used, that’s because it took me that long to figure out if I liked it or not. I walked into Sephora one day to find a group of girls surrounding a new line called Milk. Fast forward about a year and I read a review online about how amazing the Milk Blur Stick was if you have oily skin. As an oily sufferer myself, I’m always looking for the best products to keep my face from looking like a oil slick by 2:00. The packaging of the whole Milk line is really cool. I love how most things come in a solid form, so you don’t have to worry about something oozing into your makeup bag or purse. I…
