This week has been very exciting, I was asked to compete in the Looks for Less Fashion Bloggers Challenge from the Asheville Outlets! Management gave me $100.00 to pick out an outfit for the back to school/Fall season. After going through almost all of the clothing stores at the outlet I think I came up with the perfect outfit for back to school, the stylish working girl or someone who just wants to add to their fall wardrobe. Since I am personally on a budget (and I know a lot of you are) I wanted to show just how far your dollar can go at the Asheville Outlets. I picked out pieces that could be mixed and matched with each other for a few different looks but could also be added with pieces you already own or affordable extras! I did go a little over budget but I got everything pictured for right under $108.00.
I went for a tomboy chic with this look. I went with this skirt from the Gap Outlet because it’s very comfortable and the rouching on the side is perfect for all body types. Paired with this striped shirt, a letterman style jacket, a dainty bracelet and a punch of leopard in the flats this is perfect for casual Friday, can easily be taken from work to play and is great for the girl who wants to dress up for class but isn’t wanting something extremely feminine.
Taking my shirt from look one and pairing it over a floral dress is the perfect way to get an extra look out of two pieces. Plus it’s interesting with the mixing of patterns! This “hipster chic” look is pulled together with a beanie, a tribal inspired necklace and the same leopard flats from the first look.
If you can’t pull yourself to mixing that many prints, the dress by it’s self with the leopard print shoes (you can literally add leopard print to anything and it will go) is adorable and sends a playful vibe. For chilly days in class or the office this jacket pairs very nice with this dress for an even more casual look.
The great thing about all of the pieces I picked up can easily be mixed with other pieces to create various other looks!
I love finding stylish clothing at an affordable price and things that can make my wardrobe go a little further!
I had so much fun shopping at the Asheville Outlets but I did say this was a competition so here is where I need your help. Next week the outlets will be posting images of each competing bloggers look on their Facebook page. Whichever blogger gets the most likes will win a $250.00 shopping spree to the Asheville Outlets!
