Put together a perfect spring outfit for less than $30.
Based on this week’s forecast, winter finally seems to have wrapped up here in Albany. I am itching to add some new spring pieces to my wardrobe, and I have a shopping date booked on Tuesday. Needless to say, it didn’t take long to develop the inspiration for my inaugural Less Than Challenge: put together a perfect spring outfit for less than $30.
Since this is my first post, I’ll be making up the rules as I go, but if you have suggestions for future challenges, be sure to let me know! For now, here it goes…
- I must purchase at least 3 new items to be worn together as part of a perfect spring ensemble. Bonus points if they can be worn separately to make additional outfits.
- Items I already own may be incorporated, but may not make up the majority of the look (old jeans with new top and accessories – okay; old jeans, shirt, and shoes with new jewelry – not okay).
- My receipts for everything new must total less than $30, after tax.
- I have one week to complete this challenge.
To get my fashion juices flowing in preparation for this quest, I turned to Pinterest, of course. Thanks to my friend Tara, I happened upon the perfect style board to meet my needs:
I would be happy with almost any of these looks for my new outfit, especially if I can stick to my budget in putting it together. I’ll admit I am in love with all things mint, but I’m really drawn to all the coral, and a few nice neutrals never hurt anyone either. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see where my $30 takes me! Check back by the end of the week for results!
