Budget Buys

Heart Elbow Patch Sweater/ Quilted Faux Leather Skirt/ Sunglasses/ Jumper Dress/ Bomber Jacket/ Crossbody Bag

The great thing about fashion is that you can always find similar pieces at different price points. My go-to sites for the best affordable buys are usually- Piperlime (I love their Girl on a Budget section), Gap, Need Supply (they have a great mix of high and low), Nasty Gal and ASOS. Some pieces that I’m currently looking to add to my fall collection are: a quilted leather skirt, bomber jacket and a jumper dress. I was thrilled when I found all of these items at price points under $100 and even under $50. I’m usually willing to spend a little more on something when I’m going for great quality, but sometimes those budget pieces become a favorite item in your closet and you end up getting the same amount of wear! It all just depends on what you’re looking for :)

That quilted skirt is so cute! I am in desperate need of things I can afford on my budget. Or I need to get better at staying on budget.

I love to shop at Asos. They always have such great stuff, at an awesome price and it’s unique. Love the striped sweater with the heart elbow patches.

Love that crossbody! It comes in so many fun fall appropriate colors. Gap seems to be having a never ending sale right now. I am definitely going to add that to my must purchase list.

Great picks Julia.
