Fall on a Budget

I know some of you like to invest in new pieces when fall rolls around each year. This post is devoted to cute fall items for reasonable prices. Any of these pieces would be great additions to your closet for fall, and for such affordable prices you can indulge just a little.

Bags on a Budget
Black and white tote, black clutch, snakeskin clutch, camel crossbody, green satchel bag, camel tote

I definitely like the idea of adding a new bag to my wardrobe when fall comes. Whether it be a neutral color, a bold saturated one, or just black and white, any of these bags would nicely compliment my wardrobe this season. I love the black and leopard clutch and for just $14 I might have to scoop this one up.

Shoes on a Budget
Gold cap toe flats, blue bow pump, red pump, black slingback flats, plaid flats, blue suede oxfords, booties, love me

Since summer is almost over, it's time to start thinking about cute closed-toe shoe options. Normally I'm not into flats that much but with the current selection of such unique and stylish flats, I'm becoming a little more open. I love the idea of that blue suede loafer on a weekend with boyfriend jeans or the plaid flats with skinny jeans for a preppy look.

I think it's always a good idea to see how to work pieces into your wardrobe so I have created a couple of outfits with the bags and shoes that I pictured above.

This outfit looks so comfy and would be perfect for shopping over the weekend or going to a movie.

Dinner Date
Skirt, necklace, earrings

Even though this sweater looks comfy, there is no reason why you can't dress it up for dinner on the weekend. Some cute flats and a contrasting print/textured clutch compliment this look nicely.
