This is one of the most fun posts I’ve written in a while.
I gave myself a challenge.
I gave my pocketbook a challenge.
I told my pocketbook to create a capsule wardrobe for fall with affordable pieces where every piece mixed and matched with each other so I could create different looks every day. The pieces had to be comfortable and quality with details and pieces that were budget-friendly, but the pieces had to look high-end.
And I gave myself a budget of $125.
FOR ALL SEVEN PIECES.
Do you think I could make it work?
Do you think I could find pieces that fit my budget?
Do you think I could mix and match the pieces to create at least 10 different outfits.
My pocketbook and I did even better than that. We found seven affordable, super cute, comfortable, high-end-looking pieces that created 11 outfits.
And COST UNDER $115 for all seven pieces.
Want to see what I found?
Let’s start with the seven pieces I found. Have you seen the fashion at Walmart lately? It is next level. So many of my favorite brands like Scoop and Time and Tru and Free Assembly just dropped their new fall lines. Just in time for some fun fall shopping.
I’ll list them here and then I’ll show you how I mixed and matched them.
- this black sweater
- these stretchy checked kick crop pants
- this purple sweater
- these stretchy white kick crop pants
- this boyfriend cardigan
- these stretchy black kick crop pants
- this black and white striped knit dress
Let’s see the combinations I came up with and how I wore them.
See what I mean?
They seriously all just flow together and they look SO CUTE. And did I mention I got ALL these pieces for under $115?
This dress has a contrasting pattern on the front next to the collar.
The knit is high quality with a little stretch and runs true to size and it’s on sale right now for under $12.00.
It comes in several different colors, but I went with the classic black and white to mix and match with any of the sweaters.
You could wrap any of the sweaters I listed over your shoulders with this dress or wear them over the dress to create the look of a skirt and top. The sweaters are lightweight enough to work perfectly with the dress.
The dress runs true to size and would look cute with sneakers or sandals or even a blue jean jacket when it gets colder.
If you only buy one thing this fall?
Add these pants to your cart.
I ordered them in every color. They are stretchy cotton/rayon/spandex blend and they fit like a glove. I’ve washed them several times and they held up perfectly in the wash. Here I paired them with this black sweater.
Here are the same pants except in white.
Do you wear white pants after Labor Day? I just started wearing white in fall and winter and I love it.
I paired the pants with two different options.
This black sweater and the prettiest light purple sweater.
Here are two different combinations with these kick-flare black pants.
They are stretchy cotton/rayon/spandex blend and they fit like a glove. I actually bought a pair for my sister, too. I paired them with
Can you see why I had so much fun with this post?
It was so much fun to challenge my pocketbook and come up with all of these combinations and stay under budget.
Who knew my pocketbook was such a good shopper? 🙂
