Bloggers Who Budget: Fall For Less

With the holidays coming up, most of my shopping budget is set aside for presents. So I love when I spot something that will go far towards sprucing up my own wardrobe without breaking the bank. Today I'm excited to team up with 7 other bloggers to show you looks created around budget friendly items.
{ What I Wore: Old Navy sweater // J.Crew Factory button down // Forever 21 pants (sold out) // Steve Madden pumps }
{Get the Look}
critter sweater {$25} + white button down {$32.50} + polka dot pants {$19.80} + nude heels {$54.95} 
(total outfit = $132.25)
I picked up this Old Navy sweater on super sale & while it probably doesn't help the fact that I am 26 & still get carded for e-v-e-r-ything (including lotto tickets!) I love it & that's what matters in my book!

I also got these Forever21 pants for under $20 & was super impressed that they were not only fully lined, made of a thick, rich looking fabric & had the polka dots embroidered on (why I love the LOVE21 line the most!). For an extra $20 I got the waist taken in slightly & the legs tapered at the ankles by my dry cleaners... so $40 later these pants are fun & perfectly tailored for my body! Score!

  16. I love that sweater! My sister got it for my Mom for her b-day because my mom's nickname in high school was foxy. Love the polka dot pants with it. It was worth the money to get them tailored because they fit you perfectly!
