Luxe for Less

When it comes to this year’s fall fashion (and any year really), I have a few thousand pieces on my wishlist.  Unfortunately, as luck would have it, I’ve got rent to pay and the blog requires electricity, so my fall wardrobe takes a little more planning and re-planning than a simple “buy, baby, buy” game plan.  I’ve found that the best plan of action for me is to focus on classic “base” pieces and add in bold accessories or extras season by season.  The comfy little ivory dress above is making its third appearance on the blog today.  I scooped it up at the beginning of summer at H&M for under $30, and I’ve since found so many ways to wear it.  For a trip to Seattle in June (seen here), a denim vest and leopard booties gave it a little something extra, and towards the end of summer (seen here), a neon blazer added a fun pop of color.  Going into fall, this tailored jacket ($50) and statement heels ($80) are a couple of the first pieces I’m adding to my wardrobe, and I love how they balance this sweet drop-waist dress.  By sticking with transitional and classic pieces and adding in a few trendy finds and accessories each season, my closet is doubled (or tripled in this case), and I feel like I am living “luxe for less”.

    So chic and put together. And then I noticed we have the same bag! I have a weakness for anything silver!
