I am SO EXCITED to announce a new series on the blog that’s been in the works for a while – the $30 outfit! This is where I pick an occasion and create an ENTIRE outfit (shoes, purse, clothing & accessories) for $30 or less. I’ve always been a firm believer that looking great shouldn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. Being on a budget should never stop you from going out and doing things, and hopefully this series will help give you some affordable outfit inspiration for different occasions in your life!
First up is a fall date night look. Who doesn’t love holding hands and strolling through the leaves while sipping a hot beverage?! I put this look together with exactly that in mind. It’s a super comfy outfit that could easily go from dinner to a walk in the park to cuddling on the couch, and is totally affordable no matter what your budget is! All of the pieces in this outfit are also very versatile and can be used in multiple different looks. I’m all about that life.
This dress is from H&M and cost a grand total of $5! I love the heather grey colour because it looks great on every skin tone, and it’s made out of t-shirt material so it’s very comfortable.
This scarf was a major score. I found it in the sale section of Ricki’s for $2. Yep, two whole dollars. I love the pattern, and it adds a nice pop of colour to an otherwise neutral outfit.
These chelsea boots were another major score. I found them at a thrift shop for $10, and they’re actual suede. The tights were $2 from H&M. These are the deals I live for.
I got this bag from a Danier leather liquidation sale (R.I.P). It cost me a total of $10, and it’s real leather! Definitely one of those “hate to see you go, love to watch you leave” situations 😉
Have you been doing the math? Yes? No? Hate math? No worries, I’ve done it for you!
Dress ($5) + Scarf ($2) + Boots ($10) + Tights ($2) + Purse ($10) = $29!
It’s totally possible to pull together a cute outfit for a date without needing to spend a ton of money. I wore this outfit for a whole day and got multiple compliments on it, so I’m convinced your date will be equally impressed! Pair it with your favourite hairstyle and go-to makeup and you’ll be the belle of the ball.
