 This yellow sweater-tank hybrid is the perfect piece to transition into spring temps when it's not too hot and not too cold. The bright color and soft woven fit quickly elevated this to the top of the leader board in my closet, plus it's from Forever21 so it came with a #petiteprice as well.   If you've been visiting my site for a while now (which I hope you have been) you will know that I love white jeans, but I especially love white jeans during summer. A white pant is a summer must have in my book and these are my trusty Topshop pair that I can't rave about enough. Some people don't always feel as comfortable rocking white pants, so I suggest trying out a high waist pair since they can also double as Spanx ;)   My highlights of this outfit are my shoes and earrings, which were both scored through my favorite mode of shopping -- Sample Sales! If you're local to NYC you're probably familiar with sample sales, which is when designers and brands sell extra inventory and design "samples" at discounted prices. While it's not always the most glamorous experience (they are usually housed in vacant spaces and feature a somewhat aggressive mass of shoppers) sample sales are a great way to score designer pieces at discount prices. I snagged these earrings at the  Bauble Bar  sample sale for just $10 and these shoes from the  Rebecca Minkoff  sample sale for $25! If sample sales aren't local to your area check out sample sale sites such as  Gilt  and  Haute Look  for adorable and affordable options.  Styling while still saving? That's always a major OUI in my book.
