The summer BBQ invites are flooding in, but if you’re like us, the ideas on what to wear are just plain smoky. We turned to one of our fashion gurus, Breezy Mama Vanessa, who’s always on fire when it comes to throwing together the perfect outfit. So, if you want to add a little sizzle on a very friendly budget (nothing over $35.00 here!), here’s how to turn up the heat.
Floral Field Ruffle Top
Get things cookin’ in this pretty, feminine tank with adjustable straps, and adjustable tightness of the ruffle. Even better — you can wear gold OR silver with it to add the perfect amount of saucy to your ‘Q. $15.80 — Available at Forever 21.
|The Weekender Jean
Cover your buns in these casual, comfy boyfriend jeans at a great price. A sloppy roll is the way to go with these–no old school 80’s taper & fold, please. $34.50 — Available at Old Navy.
|Women’s Glaze by Adi T-strap Side Buckle Sandal
For the perfect summer seasoning, add a little something with small straps like these fun metallic sandals. If you prefer to fly under the hibachi radar, then white or nude would work as well. $24.99 — Available at Target.
|Silver Tapered Ring
Add even more flavor with a cocktail ring like this inexpensive pick that leaves lots in the budget for some refreshing beverages (read: beer). $29.99 — Available at Target.
|Merona Brass Ox Necklace
And for the final item to add to your casual menu, check out this chic necklace that’ll have you grillin’ in style. $14.99 — Available at Target.
