3 Holiday Looks Under $100

That time of year when all the festive vibe spills into everything, including what we wear! Thankfully I’ve got you covered with 3 holiday looks under $100.

I thought it would be fun to share a couple of holiday looks-  when brainstorming a title for this post is when I realized from head to toe these looks were affordable. I really believe you can pull off the style you want without having to spend a ton of money- and these 3 holiday looks under $100 prove it!

The first look is pretty casual- flannel and booties! Not any flannel though, it’s a flannel maxi dress! I have two of these and boy do I love them. Especially that ALL the buttons are real. Why is that so exciting? Because then you can wear this unbuttoned on the bottom with jeans or leggings. In fact that’s exactly how I wear the blue and grey one I own. For the holiday look I paired with booties and a floppy wool hat. I’m not sure if we are still doing the white bootie thing this season but I’m going for it. I think it makes the look pop together in a unique way!

Dress: $35 (save 5% with circle)  Hat: $16 (org $42, save with code SAVE25) Booties: $25.50 (use code HURRY45, org $70). Outfit total $72

Still keeping it casual with jeans but adding a touch of lux with velvet tops; this look is perfect for a little holiday happy hour with the ladies! I double up the texture with a velvet cami with a velvet blazer. Added a statement necklace because I’m extra. It’s such a simple outfit but it works! I know that the velvet blazer can be pricey, it’s WORTH it. It’s a piece you are going to for many seasons to come.

Blazer: $50 Cami: $15 (on sale) Heels: $35: Outfit total $100 

The last look I’m mixing luxe with casual again- only this time with a satin skirt. As soon as I saw this skirt, I knew I had to pick it up! If it came in green I would have been ALL about that too. (And emerald green statin skirt has been on my “add to wardrobe” list for years) For this look, I was thinking about our favorite holiday tradition of brunching with Santa. We usually wear something a little fancy, after all it is brunch with the big man himself. This sweater I’m wearing is actually not a sweater. It’s a super thick shirt with really great structure. I did not realize it was not a sweater until I went to search for it to link it up. You will not be disappointed with this (currently) $15 item! Throw on classic black pumps to complete the look.

Sweater: $22.50 with code SAVE25 (org $40) Skirt: $28 (org $50) Heels: $14. Outfit total: $65

Easy Go-To Sweatshirt

After months of searching I found an easy go-to sweatshirt that you NEED in your closet! I realized one day that I did not own any black sweatshirts. I am not even sure how this is possible since 70% of my closet is black clothing. It was also sorta a challenge to find one that I liked. A few months ago I bought a top labeled as a sweatshirt but when it arrived it was just a thick jersey, not exactly sweatshirt material. Over the summer I spotted a few but they were cropped. Cropped sweatshirts are cute but I […]

LC Bell Sleeve Tee

Super soft cotton and dramatic sleeves- this LC bell sleeve tee is a must buy this season! Kohl’s Instagram got me after a few post of Lauren Conrad in this crew neck bell sleeve top for her cozy fall collection. Her posts were always so cozy and who isn’t a fan of cozy in the chillier months? I threw this dramatic sleeve crew tee on with a pair of AG Prima cigarette pant, oversized plaid affinity scarf and loafers for an afternoon at the outlet mall. Need to embrace the few days of the season that it is warm enough […]

Ellie Box: October 2018

Receiving my monthly Ellie box is always a great mail day! Sharing look I chose for the Ellie Box October 2018. It has almost been a year since I started receiving Ellie boxes again and I have yet to be disappointed with the quality or content of the curated box. I thought it would be fun if I showcased the monthly box contents starting with this month! Each month Ellie has three looks (or collections as they call it) to choose- sometimes it’s hard to pick which one to get! There is usually a theme to the month- like a […]

Fashion Find: Camouflage Scarf

Camouflage has made it’s way back as a trend for this season and this scarf is a fashion find that you need to read about! I think everyone owns a little bit of camouflage in their collection and I decided it was time I did too! I am not a huge fan of camouflage so I wanted to sport this print just a little bit. It needed to be a minimal piece and not cost too much since it’s just to for fun with a current trend. While in Hobby Lobby last week to pick up a few items for the […]

Plaid + Leo: A Winning Fall Combo

If you are from the Midwest you probably own a plaid shirt (or five). Instead of pairing with your favorite plain boots trying mixing up the patterns with a leopard print shoe! Plaid + Leo is a winning fall combo! Hey babes! Look- it’s a style post! The first one since April. {covers face} In all fairness I spent 95% of summer in either a bathing suit or workout clothes so really, not much was missed. Here we are though in October and fall is in full foliage. California has palm trees, Ohio has corn fields. You can’t help but […]

Hello, are You there?

Heey, winter- you have overstayed your welcome. For real, I would be okay if you never made another apperance for the rest of this calender year. I never thought I’d miss my allergy inducing good friend Spring as much as I do right about now. Hello, are you there spring?  The trees are blooming but we are only receving a tease of beautiful sunny days. We want to throw our booties to the back of the closet and show some skin. This weekend was a pleasant weekend and we were able to spend most of it outside! Friday we went […]

Fashion Find: Recent Buys Vol. 1

Introducing a new series to Style In Shape where I will share my recent purchased items before they are styled. I know my fellow fashionistas will love all the good sales in Fashion Finds: Recent Buys! I am a bargain shopper to the bone. I rarely ever pay full price for anything- mostly because I know that most items eventually go on sale. And unless I am shopping for an event, I usually hoard new items- ration out wearing something from the new pile. It’s like my Hail Mary for the days that I’m all  “I have nothing in my […]

Layering for Late Winter

This time of year in the Midwest we get all the seasons sometimes in one week. A tease of a beautiful warm 70 degree day followed by snow showers a few days later. Layering for late winter can be a challenge but also fun. It is a time to mix some pieces to create a style to reflect the mixed up weather. One of my favorite SoCal bloggers layered a t-shirt dress last month with a cardi for some insta-style. I wanted to create a similar look using pieces I own at that are Midwest temperature appropriate. I paried a […]

Pretty Frills Brings all the Feels

Textured and soft, a little lace, and a chiffon bow; a top with pretty frills brings all the feels as winter drags on. Gals, I have been in a little bit of a rut lately and I sortof want to blame it on winter? As much as I love a good pair of boots and a great sweater- about this time every year I’m over winter weather. I have been sticking to workout leggings and a sweatshirt as my #ootd because, well, it’s cold. When I do put the effort of wearing something other than exercise clothes I have picked […]
