How to Get Fall Trends for (way) Less

Share It:
Last week, I went to an event at Kendra Scott that benefited Caritas, a homeless advocacy nonprofit here in Richmond. The event was held by another Richmond-area blogger - Megan, of Sweet Sauce Blog, and I got to meet Amanda of Truly Yours, A as well - she works at KS Short Pump. I'm SO pumped to be doing some blog-related networking in my "new" home, and have had so much fun bouncing ideas back and forth with Megan.

This post was inspired by some of the thoughts she's shared with me lately - like the fact that you don't have to go out and buy all the cute (& expensive) fall clothes you might be seeing on everyone else's blog right now. No part of this outfit was over $100 (except the one Yurman bangle that belonged to my grandmother) - and a lot of it is last season, so I linked as many similar items as I could find, but you might be surprised about what's in your own closet!

Fun fact: Target gets new shipments every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday during the wee hours of the morning. They don't replenish clothing on the floor once it sells out, so if you see something you love, grab it!

The top I'm wearing in these photos is a total Free People dupe - it was $10 from the sale rack at Target, and I've been wearing it nonstop. In fact, you may see it again on the blog very soon ;) My hat is from Target as well - they have a ton of really cute fall hats at affordable price points, so if you're hesitant about headwear, don't fear the cost! I collected a few of my faves for y'all to check out at the end of this post.

My black booties are via Hautelook, which is honestly both the biggest temptation ever and also the source of half of my closet. If you haven't already, join - your purchases can earn points towards your Nordstrom rewards! The black faux suede bomber is from Ross (under $30) and I haven't been able to find it online, but you can shop a similar one here or below. Jeans are Gap (similar here), and my tassel necklace is from Traveling Chic Boutique.

You might be surprised at the outfits you can create without spending a single penny :)
