With the annual girls beach trip looming in the near future, I knew I needed to pick up a few spring/summer essentials. I really haven´t felt much like shopping for spring as it´s been pretty cold and rainy here in Madrid but I finally decided it was time and hit up the giant Lefties on Gran Via.
Goal in mind: swimsuit, some shirts, possibly some sandals, anything cute and beachy
Budget: 80 euros.
I am happy to report back that not only did I stay within budget, I got EVERYTHING I wanted and more. The most important thing I wanted was the swimsuit. I like spending less money on swimsuits and having more of them. I know the quality isn´t great, but i actually really like buying new ones every summer. It´s a fun change up. Plus I am a beach lover, for example this August I will be at the beach alllll summer and I want to have lots of options.
My swimsuit ( 16 euros)
Yay! My new swimsuit
Then I got a cute pair of chunky black wedges. They looked great with cuffed jeans when I tried them on in the store, and I have no doubt they will also look fab with a dress or shorts.

Afterwards I got a couple solid linen/cotton blend tanks. I adore linen and I think it´s a comfortable, light summer fabric. Each summer I like to buy a few new solid color tanks, especially white ones, as they fade and tend to be overworn. Plus these can be worn with anything as they are super basic, and be tucked in or out.
Tanks (6 euros each)
I also got this white tank with a cool Indian print. It will look fab with some denim shorts.

Finally my fun purchase of the day. I have been wanting a light, comfortable pair of patterned pants for awhile now and I finally found the perfect pair. They are extremely versatile and can be worn with heels, flats, tanks, tees, etc. I also think they will be very comfortable for plane travel, which I do excessively in the summer.
Patterned Pants (18 euros)
Total price: approx 80 euros, within budget!
Hope you guys like my low cost spring/summer finds and I hope they inspire you to get shopping and buy yourself some new spring updates!
