This is time for reflections as the World faces financial crisis.
Thanks to God for the gift of life to us despite the raging Covid 19 and resultant challenges.
This is the time to be frugal and desist from spending excessively on clothing and fashion accessories.
My priorities as it relates to spending has changed significantly following the aftermath of the pandemic. In this post I am showcasing my budget friendly dressing on a day I had to visit many places. My dressing was simple and comfortable such that it was able to withstand the rigor of the day as I hop from one bus to another without me looking rough.
THE SMART LOOK
I am on a low budget so instead of spending on new clothing or accessories I prayerfully mixed and matched from clothes in my wardrobe.
You can do this too. Do not subject yourself to financial pressure to look good..

- Navy blue trouser. It actually has it’s top but this time around I opted for a new look so I put aside the original top.
- Camisole from another dress of long ago.
- Casual shirt. A gift from my son. It blended well.
- Turban. Gift from teens sometime ago. It came handy to protect my braids from dust.
You don’t have to make new purchases for every outing just to catch up with current trends. I am good with my own style. I create my own trend; following other people’s trend in fashion is a big No for me because it is expensive and will be disruptive to my finances.
HOW I DRESS CLASSY ON A LOW BUDGET: Eye Brow Pencil: My important accessory
The eye brow pencil is one out of the three makeup accessories I am fun of. My makeup kit is minimal and inexpensive but it does the work of adding a little shine to my dressing. Usually I don’t need to purchase an eye pencil more than once in a year. It is not an every day use for me but today I am in the mood for a little dressing up!

Prescription glasses have unintentionally become part of my dressing. Without the glasses I cannot read so if I must wear them why can’t I make them compliment my dressing? Well that is what I did!

I just got this budget friendly frame to replace the tired former one.
