11 Stylish Bloggers for Girls on a Budget

I’ve said this a few times before and I’ll say it again, I am a style blogger who loves style bloggers!  Some of them, I love for their flashiness and penchant for gaudy designer duds.  Some have my dream closet if I worked in a corporate office in New York City.  Some style “thrifted” pieces like it’s nobody’s business.  And some give me that everyday style inspiration that I can incorporate into my typical daily life without spending every last dime of my money.  The latter are the ones that I will be featuring on the blog today.

The first reason that I adore these ladies is because their style is the most similar to my own.  The second reason that I adore them and why I am featuring them on my post today is because they are super stylish, yet the outfits that they SLAY are very inexpensive to recreate.  They basically show you how to be stylish with the clothes straight out of your closet.  Of course, you may have to add an accessory or two.  But for the most part, they are easily attainable style goals.

Check out my favorite style bloggers for us girls on a budget below!!!

I look forward to seeing their “OOTD’s” everyday!  The crazy thing is that, for the most part, the pieces in their outfits are very inexpensive as well.  I’m talking Target, TJMaxx, Zara, Forever 21, Old Navy, etc.  So, if I want to try out some of the pieces that they’re wearing, I know that I’m not going to break the bank while doing it.

Furthermore, these ladies know what works for them which is what everyone should strive to achieve.  But to the point of the post, most looks that they post are one that could easily be put together from anyone’s closet.  For example, we all own a pair of jeans and a graphic tee right?  Well pair those babies together, add a pair of sexy heels, and a chic crossbody, and there you have it.  The perfect dressed up, dressed down look!  These fashionistas show you exactly how to do that, and so much more!

Wear This Leather Jacket All Spring Long

We’re finally getting some Spring weather around here, but the temperatures are still so “wishy-washy”.  One day it’s nice and warm out; the next day, it feels like December again.  I always look on the bright side though, so I used this crazy weather as an excuse to buy a new jacket!  Hence, this beautiful salmon pink leather jacket that I’m wearing today.

19169CB1-3040-4806-8C23-772EF23C7766

The leather jacket is a classic that is constantly being reinvented season after season.  Maybe because it adds instant cool to an outfit or maybe because it can be worn anytime throughout the year; I’m sure the reasons are endless.  I think it’s the instant cool factor that always gets me.

This jacket from New York & Company is a little bit Spring (the color) and a little bit Fall (the warmth); but it’s totally me right now.  I love the texture as well as the chunky silver zippers and the buttery soft faux leather.  The pink also gives a girly feel to it as well.

As you can see, I paired the jacket with a pair of jeans and a t-shirt.  But, I think it would be super adorable with a cute floral dress or a romper as well.  It’s so fun and it’s quite sexy too.  It’s the best moto jacket that I’ve owned if I’m being honest!

5 Ways I’m Shopping Smarter These Days

8BE508B1-D095-4230-936E-989CE864EA0E
When I first decided to get serious about my finances, the question I kept asking myself was how am I going to enjoy life with all of these restrictions (or how am I going to be able to shop).
This question was also part of the reason that I decided to take a break from blogging. I had to figure out how I would be able to run a blog dedicated to style and shopping while also going hard with paying off my debt. The two just didn’t go together in my mind. So, I spent the majority of my blog break trying to come up with an answer to this question.  Eventually, I decided on some ways that I could still have what I wanted, while also accomplishing this very important goal of financial freedom!
E4C9533E-3632-482B-9608-8DC4247701A9

Created a strict budget

The great thing about budgets is that when you use them correctly, you never have to wonder where your money has gone.  And that was a huge problem for me in the past.
Once I created a budget that accounted for all of my money down to the penny, I found that it took away a lot of stress. I then added clothes shopping to my budget because it would allow me to do something that I’m passionate about with a few restrictions.   I could no longer go shopping and not think about what I was buying and what I was spending.  I had to plan for my shopping trips and come up with a strategy.  The pieces that I buy would have to be more reliable and versatile.  Because they would be worn a lot more often than clothes I’ve purchased in the past.

Real Life Outfits, Less IG Worthy

As a style blogger, I’m constantly thinking about style inspiration and how I can provide helpful style tips to my subscribers.  I know that you guys check out my blog because you enjoy the different ways that I put outfits together and I always take that into consideration when I’m choosing looks.  However, somewhere down the line, I started choosing looks that were more IG (Instagram) worthy, and less of what I would actually wear on an everyday basis.  That left me with a bunch of clothes that were not being worn and just sitting in my closet.  No more of that!!!  I want to be as authentic as possible, so I’m purchasing items that I can wear on a daily basis in my real life, not just IG worthy looks.  Because we’re all “REAL” people and let’s be honest, most people do not look/dress like they do on IG in real life.

E8328DD0-901E-428C-9A8D-12182C5890A9

Shop my closet

As I stated earlier, in the past I had a tendency to just purchase items that I would only wear once, then leave them in my closet never to be seen or worn again.  Well, now instead of running to the stores when I want to find something to wear for my blog or to an event, I go straight to my closet first.  There’s almost a 100% guarantee that I will find something in there that I like.  How do I know that?  Because I bought everything in there.  So that must mean that I liked some of those purchases.

BC8D0D9E-649B-45F0-BCE1-3C34DEE2A332

Don’t purchase just because there’s a sale.

Another thing that I tend to do (and I know y’all can feel me on this) is rush to a store as soon as I see that they’re having a sale.  Now, I know very well that I don’t need to buy anything. Yet, I go into the store with the intention of finding pieces just because I know their on sale.  Then I convince myself that I just saved money.  Do you see the irony in that thought process?  I go into a store even though there’s nothing that I need from the store.  I buy a bunch of stuff on sale and then tell myself that you’ve saved.  That’s not even sane, but that’s how my mind works sometimes.

9AA4E8C7-6E8A-450F-9346-1F73378BBDB3

The “Three Times” Rule

Lastly, I’ve started asking myself a couple questions when I’m about to purchase an item.  One question is, “Can you see yourself wearing this three times or more?”  Another question is, “What are three ways/occasions that you can wear this piece?”  If I can’t come up with any answers, then that means that I probably don’t need it.

As you can see, I have a true shopping problem, smh.  I joke about it sometimes but it’s definitely REAL!  I’m currently having a mindset shift and I’m hoping that this shift will lead to me making smarter and more thought out decisions when it comes to spending my money.

Now, about this look.

Y’all know I am a firm believer in keeping it simple in every part of my life; especially style. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that I love this look! It’s simple, yet slightly trendy. What I love even more about it is that all of these pieces are old, except for this top. My handy dandy black jeans are a constant go-to for me and these heels are probably going to fall apart very soon but they have stood the test of time. And I think y’all remember this fanny pack/belt bag from this post couple months ago. I love shopping at Officially Chic 😊!

This One Piece Will Never Let You Down

093A4212-A9A1-4C18-8FE4-94AB740E02D1

Last year around this time, I featured some of my favorite jumpsuits for 2017!!! So I decided to do the same this year.  The jumpsuit will probably never go out of style because there are so many iterations of it.  As you can see below, you have the wide legs, tapered legs, cropped, floral, polka dot, denim, classic black, etc.  They will never steer you wrong (unless you get one that’s ill-fitting, of course).  Jumpsuits are perfect for many occasions including the office, business meetings, weddings, conferences, a night out, etc.  They’re very versatile and easy to style which is why they’re my favs!  All you have to do is add some cute heels, a nice bag, and a statement piece of jewelry! You’ll be ready to go!  Some of the one’s I’m loving are featured below.  Check them out!
