There. I said it. I loathe the word; with its ominous undertones and its ability to make me cringe at the very uttering of it. But alas, it is necessary, and husband and I have come to the unfortunate realization that a budget is necessary right now. We've whooped it up with weekend trips to the city, shopping benders and dinners out more often than dinners in. Now it's time to pull the reigns back and start, shhh, saving. Gulp.
Since I have an almost bottomless closet, I will be on a shopping hiatus for the time being. But for those on a budget who still have an open invitation to shop, here are a few of my favorite picks for fall at a price point that doesn't come with a big heaping pile of guilt.
Trend: Midi dresses/skirts
The brown tones of the stripes in the dress make it a good transition piece for fall. Just add this:
ASOS Cropped Boyfriend Blazer, $86.20
And you're good to go.
In another great fall color, this skirt would look amazing with this:
H&M Top, $14.95 (in stores only; I will dance a jig on top of my desk at work the day H&M makes online shopping available)
Voila! All for under $75! Damn I'm good.
Fall trend: 70's inspired clothing
Which would look adorable with another fall trend: a ladylike blouse, tucked in with a cute belt and platforms.
Liliana Rachel-1 Knee-High Boot, $26.88 on sale
The end. As my "budget" quest continues, I imagine my updates on cheap-chic clothing will, too.
