The Southern Fashion Bloggers have issued a challenge; create an entire look for under $100; and if you know me you know I am always up for a challenge. Don’t get me wrong, I love nice things but this challenge is right up my alley. Two kids, a house, a husband, I shop on a budget way more than I would like to but there is something so gratifying about knowing the top you are wearing costs less than lunch!
I ventured into my own closet for my look and its featuring one of my favorite trends for fall, cobalt blue.
I paired a flowing cobalt blue button front top from Old Navy, (originally $29.94 marked down to 75% off this past weekend to $7.49) with a pair of Old Navy Skinny Rockstar Jeggings in Gray (originally $34.94 marked down to 40% off this past weekend to $20.97) Something about these jeggings just works for me, They are fitted and flattering without being too tight on my curves, they are perfect in length hit most shoes nicely and are the most comfortable pair of jeans I own, I have 4 pair all different colors! I forgot to mention that I put a $3.00 racerback tank under my cobalt top so that I wouldn’t be flashing the world
To pull the look together I added a skinny cognac belt to bring in an unexpected item of color. I like pairing cognac with this color combo b/c not only does it contrast with the blue but it also is an unexpected leather tone with gray. I had a cognac leather belt that came with a little dress I already own so for me that was free! My fave part has to be the shoe, I picked them up at a little shoe boutique in my area for about $40 but just found them online for $15 They are a cage cone heel in a cognac leather, super comfortable and versatile, I can’t wait to wear them with a dress, leggings etc
For jewelery I topped it off with a long gold necklace and bangles from Forever 21, a blue smokey eye and gray nails and toes using Sephora by OPI’s “Frankly I don’t give a damn”.
