It's been awhile since I did a Fashionista vs. Frugalista post but we booked a vacation to Aruba for the end of February so now I'm constantly thinking about umbrella drinks, beaches and resort wear. While browsing the web for warm weather wardrobe inspiration (say that three times fast) I happened across these amazing Marc by Marc Jacob shorts.

I found a more budget-friendly pair of Free People shorts on sale at Bluefly. This pair is more flowy than the pair above and may actually be a skort based on the description? While I haven't worn a skort in many years, I do love skirts for summer so maybe these are worth a try? They are $34.99!

I have wanted a tie-blouse all season but have yet to find one I love but this one? I adore. Polka dots are just the happiest print to me! Anyway, I also love the Marc by Marc Jacobs blouse in the same Hot Dots pattern as the shorts above but this shirt has the same price tag as those shorts. $228 big smackers.

While browsing Nordstrom's website further I came across this Halogen top for $52.00. The dots are smaller and not as pronounced as the Marc Jacobs version but its 1/4th the price and has a very similar shape.
So what do you think? Do these pieces bring out your inner fashionista or frugalista? What's on your crave list right now?
