Mixing it Up!

Friday, October 21, 2016

When it comes to fashion, i'm all about mixing high and low end.  The key is to invest in timeless pieces!  This Gucci beauty for instance was quite an investment, but it's a classic!  I'll be able to wear this for years and it will always look great.  I remember trying to figure out what color i wanted to purchase it in and while i don't typically buy many red pieces, i felt that Gucci red is simply iconic! Besides, it adds such a great pop of color to any neutral outfit!  So yes, this is the most expensive piece in this entire outfit... but the good news is the rest of my look is SUPER affordable!  Let's chat about this fun striped shirt!  I've been wearing it so often that i ended up buy it in three other colors! It's pure comfort and under $20!  I searched high and low for the perfect ankle booties!  I was looking for comfort and style... a combo that's not always easy to find.  I wanted to be able to wear them to work and not come home with achy feet!  Well i found the PERFECT booties... love them so much i ordered them in black as well!  They're waterproof suede!  YES!  I scored my skinny jeans for $12... oh you read correctly!  Oh and i fell madly in love with this white faux fur jacket from Forever 21.  Sure, it may be a bit much for some, but personally i find it fun!  This entire outfit makes me so happy!  It's comfy yet perfect for a day of shopping or a night out!  Toss in the perfect red lip and voila.... out the door!

Hope you enjoyed my ootd!  Let's chat... what are your favorite go-to affordable pieces and what are the pieces you love to invest in?  Thank you so much for reading! Xo, Carla - FMM
