Fall and Holiday Fashion (under 100$)

This evening I decided to do something I don’t do often on this blog and share some festive fall fashion favorites I found while searching around Polyvore.  I thought it’d be fun and I might also be brave and share a seasonal decor board or even share pictures of how we have already decorated for the Halloween time. Please enjoy and comment to tell me what your favorite outfit I put together is. It’s nothing super fancy and I didn’t include jewelry and hats, accessories etc but I like each one I came up with and I would wear them all for sure!

Well I hope you all really enjoyed this post! I loved creating and finding these outfits and links for you to shop. *NOT SPONSORED AT ALL* Just some friendly wishlist shopping advice, if you’re having trouble thinking of some cute winter-y outfits for where you live. Living in Oregon is chilly and it’s pouring rain here already. I am not wearing tank tops in Cali like some people. I also wanted to share an actual holiday outfit that I’d wear, which isn’t quite this. But I would cover my stomach with a sweater or a regular length shirt and I’d probably wear tights as well.

Happy Fall everyone! Surely let me know down below which of these is your favorite and if you’re gonna buy any of these pieces. Lastly, I hope I helped at least one of you get some new clothing inspiration. For now I’ll be saving these all to my pinterest and lusting for later in the season or for Christmas!

I feel like I’m nor here nor there with how uch I’ve spent but this was some spending money occurances so, now to slow down and enjoy my new purchases. I’m learning to just enjoy a few things at a time and see how I incorporate them into my life and if then, after some time it was a good purchase or not. Also I’m abiding my the rules, one thing (clothing, item, game shoes, etc) in, so then one thing goes out. It’s been working pretty well and I’m dividing my time among different aspects of my life to make sure I’m making good choices.

I’m also finding how to use coupons and apps more for saving money and guarenteeing that I don’t pay full price-unless I really have to. I’m proud of my new found money management and it’s only week one-so stick around and find out more! Thanks! If you’d like to hear about anything specific coupon/spending/money wise- please let me know… I’m thinking of doing a grocery budget next time….
