Summer Shopping on a Budget

I love clothes, and I love shopping
Thing is... I love a good deal even more!

Summer is a fab time to shop... and I do most of mine online.

The trick is to sign up for newsletters from your favorite shops.  This way you know exactly when a good sale or promotion is happening.  Most shops also offer incentives for "signing up."  Heck, 10% or 20% off your first order can save you a ton of cash in the long run... especially if you put it towards items already on sale.

Patience is key.  If you have your eye on something, but you can't justify spending your hard earned money on it, keep an eye on it!  There's a good chance it will go on sale!

Here are some adorable summer "must haves" I've found or have my eye on from some of my favorite online shops!
Supper Powers Dress via ModCloth $35.99
Matilda dress via Emerging Thoughts $75 + use code SUMMER for 30% storewide!
X Marks the Spot Tank in Coral via Kintage $20
Mix & Match swimwear via ASOS - FREE worldwide shipping!

Metallic shorts via Forever 21 $10
Colored skinnys via Gracie B $24.95 + FREE SHIPPING until the end of the month
When it comes to shipping, since I live in Canada, I can't always benefit from the free shipping promotions... so I figure, if I'm going to have to pay for shipping, I'm going to make it worth my while!

Don't forget to scour the sale & clearance sections of your favorite shops... don't even look at the full price items!

Thrift stores & Ebay can be FULL of great finds too!  If you have the time to really browse either of these options, you can definitely leave with a few treasures!  Great thing about thrift shopping is you'll walk away with something totally unique!

So, in a nutshell... this is how I do my online shopping:

Log in in to my favorite shop
Go directly to the sale or clearance section
if possible narrow my selection by size (so I'm not disappointed if I find something I love... but can't buy)
Filter by prize (low to high)
Do a quick online search for any usable coupon codes
Add to cart!!

Happy Summer Shopping!

  4. I'm not a fan of shopping online, because I'm extremely picky and my body is shaped weirdly. Maybe if shipping was free, I tried more.. But I'll definitely hit the H&M sale tomorrow!

  5. I so need a swimsuit! Love that one from ASOS.
