Perfectly Imperfect: Cheap Spring Chic
This was actually my Easter outfit, but I’ve been slacking with putting it up. My Easter this year was pretty low-key and casual, although if you’d like to see Easter done right, I recommend this photo of Bustle and her adorable family, in a hat and everything!

Also? Don’t look like you’re spending too much money. Spent $200 on that t-shirt? Maybe keep that to yourself. I’m happy to share this springy little ensemble with you, no item of which cost over $25.
