Boutique Look on a Budget

Dress(Similar) | Shoes | Bag | Sunnies 

I would like to start a monthly series of budget posts. If you have been following me for awhile, you already know I am not a budget blogger. Thats just not the niche I fall into, I LOVE budget blogs and follow quite a few but my particular brand isn’t a budget brand. The reason? I have expensive taste, thats pretty much the reason lol. Now that doesn’t mean I don’t love a good sale because believe me I DO, and it doesn’t mean I don’t wear target sandals and thrifted blouses because I do that too! But the workhorse pieces of my blog wardrobe are designer, I love the quality, craftsmanship, customer service and history that comes with purchasing a designer bag, sunglasses, and clothing.

Not everyone can afford those things, or maybe they don’t believe in spending that kind of money on a material item. On this blog, you do you. If you aren’t into it, thats great, if you are into it thats great too! After reading comments and getting questions about dressing on a budget I thought it would be fun to work on a series where I link up budget options to recreate some of the looks I put on the blog. These posts will not be sponsored by anyone, and the items in the photos will be bought and paid for by yours truly. 🙂 Sometimes I will be able to  link the exact item, and sometimes it will be something similar to what I have. My goal is to get each outfit at less than 125 dollars total!

This dress I purchased at a boutique in Royal Oak MI, and I love how basic it is, its the perfect canvas for fun accessories. I wore it this past weekend with colorful earrings and a denim jacket and I got 1 million compliments!! Part of being a blogger is wearing clothing that is easily found or recreated, so I try not to blog about items I might find at TJ MAXX or small boutiques because often those pieces can not be found everywhere. And then the blogger guilt kicks in, I have this one amazeballs dress and I post it to share with my fellow curvy babes and guess what. It doesn’t exist anywhere else, and too bad for you. I hate doing that.

Ok I am going off on a tangent, lol. I will be linking similar items above to recreate this look on a budget of 125 dollars!! Then below I will lay out the math so we can see where I spent my 125 bucks.

Shoes- 32.99

Dress- 28.00

Bag- 27.90

Sunnies- 12.99

Total spent- 101.88 without tax 

Happy Monday babes!
