Budget Find: Get My Top & Skirt Combo Under $40

When I'm doing my budget shopping, I'm still looking to make my inexpensive items look expensive.    A classic black and white combo will always do the trick.  When budget shopping, I tend to usually stick to more neutral tones, like blacks, white, beiges, nudes, etc. Then I'll add the "pizzaz" in with my accessories.

There are few things that I liked about this combo from Forever21. This skirt, only $16, had tulle underneath to give the skirt some fluff and to bring it alive. There's also a hot pink version here that I may get too.  Both colors are so fun, and they can be easily dressed up or down. The black makes an excellent work skirt.  I like the top simple seam shoulder detail.  Both pieces just look smart to me.  This is a closet must-have for those looking for a great staple to add that is budget friendly. 

Style Notes:  I got a size 2x in the top and bottom.  For the skirt, you should go by your waist measurement only.  I usually get 3xs in Forever21, but got to try this on in store.  Also, I've been getting a lot of shoes on eBay lately.  Size 11s & 12s are a quick search away, and I'm also able to get a lot of the more expensive shoes I like discounted
