Affordable Fashion Finds

 

After last weeks post sharing some affordable fall fashion, it’s obvious you babes love affordable fashion finds just as much as I do! I got some requests for more budget friendly options and I am excited to share my finds. All of these pieces are under $50. They are pieces that can be mix, matched and layered and worn through the fall and winter. Just click the item you want to shop! Happy shopping!

Three Sweaters You Need For Fall

Leaves are falling and the temperatures are dropping and that can only mean one thing…It’s officially sweater weather! Changing seasons also mean it’s time for a wardrobe refresh. I love adding a few new pieces to my closet each season to freshen things up and to try out some of the latest trends! This fall, it’s all about sweaters!

Nordstrom is ALWAYS my go to when it’s time for a wardrobe refresh! The Nordstrom Trend section is the first place I check for their amazing prices and great selection. I love finding the seasons best trends at prices that don’t break the bank. The best part about Nordstrom is also their free shipping and returns. It’s a great way to try the latest trends and see what really works for you!

This season, I’ve discovered three sweater trends that I LOVE…mustard, stripes and brights. I’ve been drawn to sweaters that fit in these three categories and have loved incorporating them into my fall wardrobe rotation! Check out three ways I style these trends and some of my favorite sweaters from Nordstrom below!

I’ve been loving all things mustard lately. Actually any color in this family is my fave! From cheery yellows to dreamy goldenrods, give me all the sweaters in this perfect fall shade. This cardigan is a gorgeous shade of mustard and goes perfectly with my favorite neutral pieces. It’s a chunkier knit too, which is perfect for adding a cozy layer when the fall temps drop.

A great striped sweater never goes out of style, but it seems like stripes are currently taking over more than usual! There are so many great options out there and I am loving the varied color combos! I love the color combo of this crewneck option, but the best part is that it’s chenille, making it oh so cozy!

A bright sweater adds such a fun touch to any fall outfit! I love pairing mine neutral pieces to really make the outfit pop! This cardigan is the most gorgeous shade of red/orange and I LOVE it! It’s really soft too and I love the balloon sleeves!

NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE 2018: DENIM GUIDE

I asked and you answered…the thing most of you are looking for during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is DENIM! I always stock up on fresh denim for the fall during the NSALE as I find the best deals on new styles. Below I am rounding up some of my favorite denim picks from the sale, including sizing info! I have ordered a few more pairs and hope to edit this post to include them so you can consider this your one stop shop denim guide while shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

FYI: For sizing reference, I am 5’3 and usually wear a 25.

AG ‘Prima’ Skinny Jeans (NOW: $144 // AFTER SALE: $215 )

I bought my first pair of AG jeans last year during the anniversary sale. AG jeans are pretty pricey, so getting them on sale is a bonus! At first I was hesitant to splurge on denim, but after reading plenty of rave reviews I took the plunge and am SO happy I did. Obviously happy enough to be buying my second (and third…I ordered this distressed pair to test out but haven’t received them yet!) pair this year.

SIZE: These run pretty true to size. I ordered a 25, but think I could have almost sized down into a 24. My other AG jeans are 25 and fit perfectly, but I found these to be just a tad big in the top. If you are on the fence about sizing, I would size down!

PROS: AG jeans are notoriously comfortable and high quality. They don’t bag out in the knees or stretch out after a few wears. I love the darker wash and think if denim is allowed in your work place, these are the jeans for the job! Teacher friends, these are my top pick for the classroom. I know they are on the pricier side, but I wore my other AG’s ALL of the time last year. These are flexible (for all those times you spend kneeling at a desk or sitting down on the floor) and super comfortable!

CONS: I found these to be just a little loose in the ankles. I think it’s due to my height (5’3). I prefer rolling the hems of my denim anyways, so don’t think this will be a problem, but definitely something to consider! The price tag is a bit hefty, but worth it IF you are comfortable splurging.

STS Blue ‘Emma’ High Waist Ankle Skinny Jeans (NOW: $39 // AFTER SALE: $59 )

Looking for the best bang for your buck during the sale? This pair of denim is a winner! On sale for just $39, this is the perfect pair of non-distressed jeans to add to your wardrobe! Not willing to fork out the cash for the AG’s above? These are a great, budget friendly option!

SIZE: These fit true to size! I’m wearing a 25.

PROS: A super skinny, high waisted fit is always flattering! I love the way these fit and I love where they hit me on the ankle. The slim fit of the leg is perfect for wearing with boots in the fall and winter. You also can’t beat that under $40 price tag!

CONS: As mentioned above, I am only 5’3 and these hit me at the perfect spot. If you are taller, these may be too short for you. I also find that because of the price, the denim doesn’t feel of the highest quality. But again, for under $40, they feel like a steal to me!!

BLANKNYC ‘The Great Jones’ Raw Hem Skinny (NOW: $59 // AFTER SALE: $88 )

BLANKNYC has been one of my favorite denim brands for a few years and one I always look for first when shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I’ve always had great luck with BLANKNYC and was happy to snag these when the sale started. I also have my eye on these and am impatiently waiting for a re-stock!

SIZE: These fit true to size! I’m wearing a size 25.

PROS: These have just the right amount of stretch making them SUPER comfortable. They do not stretch out after wearing, which is often typical of denim with this much stretch. I love the raw hem and the wash and the high waist. These are so comfortable! I know they will be a go to for me for the classroom!

CONS: This is small, but I’m not crazy about the “whiskers” at the top near the pockets. I don’t think it’s as noticeable in person as it is in the pictures and is not a deal breaker for me!

Articles of Society ‘Heather’ High Waist Distressed Skinny Jeans (NOW: $45 // AFTER SALE: $68)

I LOVE this denim! From the distressing to the high-waist, skinny fit, these might be my favorite denim purchase from the sale, plus they are budget friendly at only $45!

SIZE: These fit true to size! I’m wearing a size 25.

PROS: This pair has just the right amount of distressing

CONS: As with the other under $50 pair above, these don’t feel as high-quality as the other denim I purchased. I also put my feet through the distressing on the hem every – single – time I put them on and am worried about ripping through it. I will learn to be more mindful…these are staying in my closet!

Free People Ripped High Waist Ankle Skinny Jeans (NOW: $52 // AFTER SALE: $78)

Hands down one of my FAVORITE pairs of denim ever. I own these in a few different washes (light wash, white, olive and black) and was so excited to see new washes as part of the sale. I am keeping my eyes peeled for a restock of this wash because I feel like I definitely need to add it to my wardrobe! This denim is so good, especially at this price!

SIZE: These run small!! I sized up to a 26.

PROS: I find the fit of these so flattering! I love how high-waisted they are and that they hit me at the perfect place on my ankle. They look good with just about anything and I love that I can wear crop tops with them without it showing too much midriff because of how high-waisted these are!

CONS: These run small and even in a size up they are still tight and difficult to get on (and off). If you are taller, these may have a cropped fit on you!

I’ve raved about these mules SO many times! I own them in 2 colors and can’t tell you how comfortable they are!
