Champagne Taste vs. Beer Budget

Happy October!!!

^^^Whoa I really can’t believe I just said that! Where did the last month year go?!  Seriously, Christmas is less than 3 months away!

October is one of my favorite months.  It’s the first full month of fall, the leaves are officially turning, and it’s full on pumpkin-flavored-everything season!

However, we still get days that reach the low 80s for a few more weeks so I can’t put away all of the summer clothes just yet.  But gosh darn, I will pretend it’s 60 degrees anyway.  Which is what inspired the outfit for today’s post.  It’s great for those chilly mornings that turn into warm afternoons.

I love these 3/4-length sleeve shirts.  They are comfy yet cute, and come in a bazillion colors.  I picked 2 up at the LOFT outlet a couple of months ago, and then we were back there a few weeks ago and I picked up a couple more.  I like that I can dress them up for work too.

The jeans are from LOFT as well.  Surprise, surprise!   They are so incredibly comfortable!  I purchased them when they were running a sale for $20 off all jeans.  I wanted a pair of flair leg jeans and these were perfect.

And I am obsessed with the TOMS wedges. Zulily was having a sale a few weeks ago and I just couldn’t resist them.  I’ve started picking out outfits based on whether they go with the wedges.

I found the purse at the Kate Spade outlet in Myrtle Beach (which is also where the LOFT outlet was).  I was hoping to find a grey or navy purse, and ended up coming out with this one.  I fell in love with the color and thought it was perfect for fall.

The final touch for the outfit was the scarf, which I got on clearance at Old Navy for $4.

Have you noticed that nothing I buy is full-price? This is how I deal with having a “champagne taste on a beer budget.”
