Looking en trend and current doesn’t have to set you back your rent every month. Case in point- this sweater which was clearly inspired by this seasons Rag & Bone one. Not only is that one about 500% more expensive, but it is now impossible to find as it’s been spotted on basically every celebrity and fashion blogger. I got this for a fraction of the price and the quality is amazing, super thick, soft and flattering.
Of course there are pieces I splurge on, and have no remorse. But, I unfortunately like many of us do not have the budget to take every look right off the runway. So I improvise, I scowl the internet looking for more affordable ways to represent my favourite trends and still be able to go out for dinner once in a while.
Looking great doesn’t have to cost a fortune and even all the money in the world can’t’ buy style.

Enter quote possibly my new favourite skirt. Pleated skirts are huge for fall, wether on a midi skirt, or a short tartan skirts worn with tights. It’s a great way to continue to work you’re skirts while the weather gets cold.
The great thing about this piece is that you can really dress it up or down. I had it worn with sneakers one day and heels another. I didn’t want to get to fancy today so I paired it with a cool french terry hoodie. Bring the look down to Earth a little and make it more wearable. Since the skirt is high wasted I can afford to wear my crop tops with it and show some skin without showing toooooo much skin.
Will you be rocking pleats this fall?

So wearing blankets out in public is a thing now, and I honestly could not be happier about it. I have to admit, I wore this ponchoesque blanket every single day this weekend and I do not regret a thing. I blame Olivia Palmero, Cara Delevingne and all the other starlets that have been sporting the Burberry monogrammed poncho.
It’s extraordinarily versatile and easier to grab when you are running out the door then a sweater or jacket. The way it falls off the shoulders, the arms, the way it can be worn wrapped up tight or loosely draping off your elbows is so effortless and beautiful.
I choose to pair it with skinny jeans and flats on this brisk day but I can’t wait to wear it with a leather mini and some boots. It will work so well with the proportions, keeping covered up while showing some skin.It’s the perfect in-between for the “baby it’s cold outside” days and the “it’s to warm for a jacket”. I also plan to wear it over my wool coats, which will add an extra layer of warmth, and style.
Will you be be rocking a blanket this fall? Bonus points if it has fringes.
