As a blogger, it can get tricky ((and expensive!)) trying to always have different looks to shoot. I obviously love clothes + fashion, so it's almost never about running out of ideas for an outfit but more about being able to afford the look that I want to create, ha! That's one reason why I always love bargain shopping! Don't get me wrong, I do believe that quality is above quantity and think it's wise to invest in good staple pieces for your wardrobe. However, when you are chasing after the latest trend, there's nothing better than finding a good sale or rummaging through your local thrift store. I've been wanting to create this look of wearing a sheer dress over jeans, and was so excited to find this amazing lace maxi at Forever 21 for only... wait for it... $24.90!! I fell in love with this dress and couldn't wait to layer it for this fun + different look! I also bought this white ribbed turtleneck that I wore underneath the dress from F21 for $7.90, and these Levi's I've had for a while but found them at a thrift store for only $15! Being fashionable doesn't always have to break the bank, and sometimes we need a little Forever21 shopping spree to remember just that! :)
I hope you guys have been having a great weekend! I'm on my way home from a girl's trip to Philly, and can't wait to share with you guys some of what we did soon!
