I woke up this morning to one very crappy thing and one really great thing. Let me explain…
First, the crappy thing. I heard a knock on my door and it was a nice passerby who wanted to let me know that my car had been broken into. I was so bummed. Is it a huge deal? Well no. No one is hurt, only a few things were stolen that I was planning on bringing to Good Will anyway, and in the end it’s just money to fix the window and that certainly isn’t the most important thing. But still, it really bummed me out. After calling my insurance company and contacting the police department, I came inside feeling pretty down.
Now comes the really goodl part! I sat down and powered up my computer to find the most special email from a woman named Nicole Z. I hope you don’t mind Nicole but I am going to share some of your email here:
“I’m not one to follow blogs or fashion sites, BUT yours im obsessed with. Most blogs have these amazing outfits that are always way out of my budget. Yours shocks me sometimes when I click and see its all under $50. Love that. I’m a first time mom and my daughter just turned a year old, so I decided its time to get back to my old self and out of these sweats I have been living in haha. After being pregnant for a year and wearing sweats covered in baby spit up, I was lost when it came to what was in fashion. I cant afford much and just recently felt like I deserved to get a few new items in my wardrobe. In the past month I literally ordered almost 3 outfits you posted. Thank you so much for helping me get my post mama style back. I feel amazing in my new outfits. And when a girl looks good she feels good. Thank you for helping me find that. Also congrats on the engagement. So excited to follow you through this amazing journey.”
Thank you so very much Nicole! This email made my day! I could care less about the car and all I can think about it how happy I am that I’ve had a positive impact in your life. Yes, sometime I post higher priced items but I really try my best to post about things that the everyday woman can afford and look fabulous in!
So in honor of Nicole, today I am posting about one of my favorite Fall looks for less! This ones for you Nicole!
This dress is under $50! Yay! It might look familiar because I own it in a few different colors. I posted about one of them HERE and I got so much positive feedback on it from you guys! I’m so glad you guys LOVE this dress as much as I do! I own it in army green too and I’ll post about that look soon. But I love this maroon color. It is so great for fall! And can you believe that these boots are under $55!?!?! It is so hard to find good boots under $100 these days! I was absolutely psyched when I found these boots. I love the rich brown color. They work great with this dress but I also love to wear them with leggings and THIS big cozy sweater. They will be a perfect staple boot for you this fall! And don’t forget to wear warm boot socks underneath. I love the look of the socks peeking out over the top of the boots.
I finished off the look with this cute tassel necklace and my favorite $20 watch! Oh and I’m sitting this AMAZING blanket scarf. I post a picture of my wearing it soon. But it’s THE BEST and only $30. I love blanket scarfs because you can wear them different ways and use it as a blanket to sit on if you have a fall picnic! So fun!
Everything in this post is under $55 except for the gold personalized necklace. Hope you guys LUV this look! And Nicole, I REALLY hope you LUV it! xoxo
