One of my favourite tricks when adding to my wardrobe is to shop smart.  I find I change my mind so often about what I love/hate so it isn’t practical to always be spending hundreds of dollars on clothing.  Though there are pieces I will invest it, most of the time you’ll catch me styling pieces under $30. This look I’ve created is super basic but just a simple example of how easy it is to create a full look for less.

I’m going to do a two post series where I’ll show you two looks I created for less than $125 (each).  I wanted to do this post because I often come across looks that I love but simply aren’t financially practical.  I know that everyone enjoys more for less and if you have a plan and know what you’re looking for it doesn’t have to look cheap.

My first step in shopping smart is choosing a place you can rely on.  Forever 21 has to be one of my favourite places to find cute wearable pieces. I love how I can click on the images and zoom in and see exactly what it is I’m purchasing.  Start with a staple piece or something you know you can work into a number of different looks. For this look here, I decided I needed a pair of Fall Boyfriends and chose to work around that.  Distressed boyfriend jeans have been trending for the past couple of seasons and I’m liking it.  I love how I can feel comfortable and relaxed without having to leave my house in tights.  I also will add to the distress myself if I love the fit but wish there was more wear + tear to it.  Like I did with this pair, I’ll grab my scissors and just start snipping and ripping.  If the boyfriend style isn’t your thing that’s totally okay! They have everything from skinnies (actually $7.90) to distressed capris to flares! Whatever your style, there is a pair for you and completely affordable.

Once you’ve chosen your staple find add on’s and accessories to complete the look.  Sunglasses, cardigan, a hat and a pair of faux-leather sandals can complete the look without breaking the bank.  I hope you found this helpful + you all have a wonderful weekend! xx E
