Girl On A Budget

It has been awhile since I did a big round up for the girls on a budget featuring my favorite items to spend, save, and splurge on. Since I am definitely living by this concept these days {hello baby!} I wanted to share a ton of great items that I’ve found to wear now and transition into fall with price points to accommodate any and every budget! Seeing all of these items in a wide range of prices helps me to better identify what I think is worth the investment or not. This pregnancy has really helped me define my personal style; sticking to basics, classic silhouettes, neutrals, and investing in items that have a long shelf life. Here is a list of items that I hope will carry me through next summer…items for fall for the girl on a budget at every price point1. A leather jacket is the ultimate addition to a basic tee/jeans combo or a flirty feminine dress.
