The Modest Budget: Summer Outfit Roundup + The Modest Budget Instagram

Happy Labor Day, Lovelies!
In an effort to enjoy this holiday (and have more time for homework, lol) I'm sharing with ya'll a roundup of all the summer outfits I have shared on The Modest Budget since May!

Some news...

The Modest Budget has its own Instagram account! The goal of @themodestbudget on Instagram is to challenge me to re-mix outfits and find new ways to wear them, instead of buying new clothes. I'll feature one piece 3-4 different ways, or mix outfits by only changing one piece of clothing, but creating a whole new look!
