Hey you!

Hope you are doing fine!, Thanks for dropping by again. Today it’s all about budget shopping. I love to give myself that challenge sometimes. It’s fun and I love to be creative. No need to spend a whole salary to look good.  It’s not about the money, be creative yet simplistic!

Before I start my budget challenge, I clean up my closet. I think about what kind of look I would like to create. I check the magazines, my favourite blogs or online websites  to find some inspiration, if I don’t have some myself. After that, I set out my budget and a wish list.

Now that you know what I already have in my closet, like the white jacket that I’m wearing, the shoes and bag, I only need to add some basics. My budget today, 100 euro’s!  This is an easy budget kick off , if I do say so myself . The first item on my list : Graphic monochrome pants. I’ve been dreaming about a graphic pants for a while  now, so that was my first mission.  Working on my budget list from top to bottom keeps me from buying things I don’t need.

Of course  their will be a letdown while shopping.  Once I went on my budget fashion spree I had to change plans , I couldn’t find the pants that I had in mind.  I decided to go for a monochrome budget tricot legging instead. This legging was on sale for 7 euro, so that’s a big bargain price, and cheaper than the pants that I had in mind. Because the tricot legging is very present I combined it with a oversized high low t-shirt  from H&M and lucky me, it was on sale  too for 7 euro . I only added the gold statement ring from Hema  to finish this budget look. The rest of the accessories I previously bought.

For the overall budget look with the white jacket, shoes, accessories, bag and sunglasses I paid:

  1. Check out the sales items first. See if you can find something that fits with the rest of your wardrobe. Keep that in mind otherwise you loose track immediately.
  2. Nowadays they have the best budget trends on the market, don’t shay away to negotiate about the price, you will be surprised if you try.
  3. Stores like Primark are the perfect place to buy budget accessories
  4. Be aware when the Big sale starts.
