Have you ever been on the road and needed a quick outfit?! Something that's still stylish yet comfortable?! Obviously, I didn't follow the packing list and brought way more clothes on this trip than I should have, but it still wasn't enough. I didn't take into account how many trips to the lake I would take, lol.
Accessories really do make an outfit. I know all the bloggers and youtubers spout that and you think it's bullshit but it's true. Hear me out: I bought this entire ensemble (to include the shoes) from Wal-mart. Yes, you read that right, Wally freaking World. The crochet back, v-neck, twist front top was $7.92, the Levi Strauss jeans were $19.94 and these fake Birkenstocks were less than $15. Get into it, sis.
Many, many years ago my very good friend Jaci bought me what she called a "scarf starter kit". I had never worn scarves and didn't know how to incorporate them into my wardrobe so she went to H&M and got me an array of different prints and styles. This was one of those. I've included the links to purchase a similar scarf and all the other items on my 21 Buttons profile.
Alright. I did accessories with Gucci sunglasses and a Louis Vuitton belt but I wouldn't be me if I didn't. My charm bracelet is from Pandora and my VI bangle is from Caribbean Local Fashion. If you need $ off your next purchase, fellow blogger bae, AsForLitaa has discount codes: Litaa10 and/or LITAA.
It really doesn't take a million bucks to look like a million bucks. I love stores like Ross, Marshall's and T.J. Maxx because they provide quality pieces at bargain rates. If you live somewhere that doesn't have any of those options picking quality, inexpensive pieces from the stores you do have will go a long way. Build your wardrobe with simple, staple pieces that you can reuse and you'll get your money's worth 10x over.
What are your go-to stores for quality, inexpensive pieces?
Leave me a comment, I'd love to know!
