Update Basic Fall Uniform for under $150

Happy weekend gals! I love fall, and the weather in October is the best in the midwest. This weekend we are in Michigan visiting family – we are going to a Halloween Party  and have also booked seats for a fall train ride.  Everyone can agree that a basic fall uniform is sweater + jeans + boots, right? These classic outfit pieces always create a wining style- especially during the cooler months. Outfit on repeat. Today I want to share how to elevate the style of the basic fall uniform for under $150 with modern pieces, including designer jeans!

My sweater looks like a classic crewneck- and it is from the front! The back has fun straps that cross which take this classic sweater up a notch in the style department! The best part — the sweater is currently on sale for $15.99. If you have a Kohl’s charge card, you can save an additional 30% with the code FALL30 and grab this sweater for about $11!

About a decade ago I discovered how amazing the quality of designer denim is compared to less expensive jeans, but the price can be shocking. $200+ for a pair of jeans, no thanks! As I mentioned in my previous outfit post, as a general rule, I typically only buy new jeans if I can score them for $100 or less. I always check Nordstrom Rack, Off 5th and Last Call, sometimes even Amazon. I snagged these 7 For All Mankind distressed skinny jeans for $79!

I threw on my favorite new fall booties which are currently on sale for $34.99 at Kohl’s (Remember to use that 30% off coupon listed above and you can grab these booties for just under $25)!

My bag is from a fun shop in the Oregon District in Downtown Dayton, Heart Mercantile, but I’ve found a similar version available at Old Navy for under $30. And since most people share my fondness for saving money, I wanted to let you know that you can save an additional 20% off using the code SWEET which makes it under $24! Grab them all today before the winter blows in!!!

Sweater with 30% off- $11. Booties with 30% off- $25. Bag with 20% off- $24. Jeans at $79.97. Outfit total= $140!

Guess what? About mid-week the temps dropped to feeling like fall here in Dayton! Yes! Break out the sweaters! At least for a day because it’s warming up again this weekend! But first, let me show you a simple way to layer up a cold shoulder top. When the temps cooled off to below 70 this week I decided to layer up the cold shoulder button up that I was planning to wear to work that day. A knit vest is a perfect layering piece for this! Added warmth of the knit material but still showing off the shoulders a […]

25 minute Kettlebell Workout

Kettebells are a great tool for exercise! The types of movement with a kettlebell workout promotes functional strength with flexibility. Plus it is cardio and strength all in one which is always a bonus! I’m sharing a 25 minute kettlebell workout that I did last week. Warning- my legs and abs were sore for a few days! #nopainnogain I used a 10lb kettlebell for this workout. If you do not own a kettlebell you can substitute with a dumbbell. Run through each exercise, then repeat the round before moving on. Make sure on those single side exercises that you complete a […]
