Winter & White Jeans

It’s winter, we all know that.  What’s worse than grey skies and a few snow flurries? When you live in the south and expect it to be sunny…well, nothing is much worse than bad weather.

I’m sharing one of my favorite looks with you this week, a pop of color fall sweater with white jeans and a dark bootie heel to tie the entire look together.  As a fashionista myself, one of my favorite things to do is mix items when creating an outfit.

What if I told you this entire look was less than $125?

I absolutely love mixing and matching different pieces of clothing together!  What I mean by that is, I like being able to wear shoes that may cost $20 and pair them with a dress or sweater that costs $150.  Now, in this case, overall this look is fairly affordable.  However, if you’re wearing a dress that may cost $250, can you really afford a pair of shoes that costs just as much if not more?

Here’s how I’m able to dress posh on a budget.

Let’s examine.

Jewelry – Tassels are in this season. There’s absolutely no question about that.  They’re in every major boutique store.  However, sometimes they’re not the most affordable. That’s why I decided to sign up for Jewlybox.  Jewlybox is a jewelry subscription service which allows you to receive three gorgeous pieces of jewelry like these earrings for just $29 a month.  You can’t beat that.  I got these gorgeous white tassel earrings in my box along with two other amazing pieces for just $29!  You can check out Jewlybox here!

Sweater – This sweater every known blogger was rocking this season and I have to say, I’m obsessed.  I purchased this sweater from Nordstrom and I believe it was $39.  Not too bad for a brand new and trendy piece of clothing from Nordstrom.com.  Unfortunately, they only have it left in white but you can shop it here and it’s on sale!

Jeans – Hudson. All the way.  I am obsessed with Hudson jeans.  There’s something about these jeans that just conform to your body and hug you in all the right places (if you know what I mean).  I have a pair of black, white and dark blue denim jeans from Hudson Jeans and they’re my go-to every season!  They’re a little expensive but definitely worth the investment.  I’ve linked similar jeans to the one’s I’m wearing here!

Shoes – I purchased these booties years ago from Forever 21 in both black and brown and I’ve definitely gotten my wear out of them this season.  If there’s something I will tell you, it’s never to invest more than $30 in your everyday shoes.  Obviously it’s fun to have the Christian Louboutin heels and Stuart Weitzman boots.  However, is it practical for us non-Kardashians?  No.  Go to Forever 21 and get yourself some affordable shoes – you’ll be glad you did – trust me!  Unfortunately, because they’re so old, I wasn’t able to find the exact bootie heel! But you can shop what I was able to find here!
