Happy Monday all!
As the seasons start to change, so does my day-to-day life — Some rather big changes will be happening over the next few weeks that are both slightly terrifying, yet exhilarating and I’ll be sharing more details as they come along
With these significant changes also come a significant shift in my budget. So today I want to introduce a new Kinks are the new Pink blog feature — Style on a Budget! It’s pretty straight forward, for the fall/winter season I’ve given myself a strict budget of $150 per month to spend on clothing, shoes, bags, etc. and share my finds each month here on the blog! At first thought I wondered how I could afford anything – working with luxury, designer goods all day really warps your thinking – but after doing some digging, I was pleasantly surprised at what I could afford as long as I knew where to look.
This is my plan for October spending. I recently did a full closet clean out this weekend (It was slightly terrifying, as my bedroom looked like a warzone), and I noticed I was in desperate need of a pair of tall black boots. I love the long and lean look over-the-knee boots give your legs, especially in such a simple & classic riding boot style like these Chelsea Crew pair!
I’m sure you remember my pumpkin-orange pea coat (seen here, here, here, and here ), I’ve had it for almost 3 years now and I have to admit it’s seen better days. Which is why I’m obsessed with the color of this coat from Oasap! It’s so vibrant, it most certainly can brighten any dreary fall/winter day by bringing bright blue summer skies to mind! I also love the extra design details including the zippered pockets, angled front closure, and rounded neckline – It’s a classic coat with a biker’s edge.
Finally as I was still under budget, I added a fun fall accessory! This ASOS bear-ear hat will add just the right amount of quirkiness to any ensemble. And you all know I love a touch of quirk
I’m hoping this new feature will be both fun and inspiring! I love finding quality fashion on a budget! It makes the purchase that much sweeter
Hope you had a great weekend! Thanks for reading!
