My experience as the TJ Maxx’s #Maxxinista of the Month was amazing – plain and simple, I’ll never forget it. I feel so lucky to have been given the chance to feature my style and to show other #Maxxinistas-in-the-making that you don’t have to break the bank to be stylish.

Dress: (c/o) Rose Gold and Blush $59.95/Sandals: Steve Madden $79.95/Clutch: Francesca’s Collection (gift)/Necklace: Charming Charlie $20/Earrings: Forever 21 $5.95

It’s wedding season, which means you’ll need to have a couple dresses on standby in case you can’t re-wear the same one over and over. But doing so, may hurt your budget – between traveling expenses, a gift for the bride and groom and an outfit for the shower, rehearsal dinner and main event – it can get pretty costly.

So what do you do?

I’m loving printed dresses these days. But before you hit the stores to nab one (I hear TJ Maxx is having their big clearance sale), there are a couple things you should consider…

One of the most important things I try and abide by when shopping is to select pieces that have versatility. Whether it be a top, a pair of trousers or a handbag, it should mix and match with at least three different items in my closet in order to be a worthwhile investment, especially if it’s a costly one. So when TJ Maxx asked me to take one item and style it in three different ways for, “This Maxxinsta Life,” I knew it would be a task I’d excel at, having spent so many years crafting creative outfits on a reasonable budget.

For “This #Maxxinista Life,” I was tasked with putting together a look from TJ Maxx that’s trending – so I choose palazzo pants since they’ve pretty much been one of this summer’s hottest trends and one of my personal faves.

Here’s how you can sport them this season…

Dressing up for work requires extra effort in the morning, but it also makes you feel good especially when dealing with clients or when meeting someone for the first time. Plus, it shows your boss that you take your job seriously and also, that making a good impression on others is important to you.

This neon number from Cynthia Vincent was scored from TJ Maxx for less than half it’s regular price. It looks and feels great – is not super tight – and is the perfect dress to transition from dinner with your family to champagne cocktails with your girlfriends in. A classic silhouette structured with an eye-popping print and a touch of texture, this dress is constructed with a material that’s light, easy to wear during the summer and one that looks great against a tan!

These sky-blue striped denim jeans from Splendid are in line with summer’s easygoing mood. I especially love that they are cropped and comfortable – made with a soft and stretchy fabric that’s forgiving and easy to wear when it’s hot and sticky outside.
