Yes You Can

Jacket: Macy's; T-Neck: Ann Taylor; Skirt: Dollar General (similar);
Boots: Rockport via Nordstrom; Necklaces: Ann Taylor (similar)/Stella & Dot;
Bracelets: Ralph Lauren/Kate Spade (similar)

One of the biggest statements I hear from my readers is "I can't afford to shop." And I'm here to tell you, yes you can! I will admit that I have a lot of designer pieces in my wardrobe, but I also have a lot of inexpensive pieces as well. You just don't always know they're inexpensive because it's all in how you style them!

Take this skirt of instance. Are you sitting down? I got this skirt over the summer at Dollar General! That's right, Dollar General. It's by designer Bobbie Brooks and it cost $13! And in my opinion, it doesn't look $13 and it doesn't look like it came from Dollar General. I paired it with a merino wool t-neck from Ann Taylor, a Levi's denim jacket, and suede Rockport boots. Layered necklaces and loads of bracelets complete this affordable look!


Aztec prints are really trendy right now, but if it's not a trend you really want to invest in, this is a great way of doing so. Picking up a trend from a lower end retailer makes you feel stylish without feeling guilty! I love this skirt and can't wait to pair it with chunky sweaters for the winter or my moto leather jacket for a little edge! 

Where do you like to shop when trying to save a buck?
