So I love styling women and making them feel pretty. When Becky Parker of “B You Fit” mentioned to me that she wanted some new fall outfits, and she felt like all she wore is workout clothes…I knew she was the perfect candidate for me to help!!!!
She told me that her clothing budget was $200 and she was pretty much open to wearing anything…I suggested we head to Marshalls, because I visit frequently and knew they had just got a ton of trendy, yet affordable, items…..I started searching through the racks and pretty much filled the entire cart up…..
Since the basis of her wardrobe is black leggings I wanted to find some basic tops that she could pair up with her leggings easily. She told me she did not own a plaid shirt for fall, which I think is a necessity, so I chose this black and white one.
Becky was unsure about the fit, but I told her before you say “no” to a clothing item you like, try some styling tweaks….like tying up the front or the side of the shirt.
She love this kimono and so did I ….and it was clearance…she could easily throw this on over black leggings and a tank top and looked dressed up enough for dinner. I loved the fall, floral print too.
I am obsessed with camo anything…..These leggings were $5.99…legit $5.99!!!
Note the denim shirt she has on….also clearance!! She wanted a denim shirt for her closet, but she does not like the denim shirt style that fits tightly on the stomach area. This one had a blouse-y fit in the front and was super flattering. It looked great with the camo leggings, as well as the black leggings.
I suggested getting some new jeans and a longer fitting cardigan. The cardigan could also mix and match with her leggings. Skinny jeans are her favorite fit so we found a high waisted pair that hits at the ankle, which is a modern version of the typical skinny jean. I also chose this mauve colored sweater because it is a color she does not have in her closet that matches with greys, blacks, tans, whites, greens, and navy….and it is a fabulous color for her skin tone!
She even wore them out on a recent date night……
I stumbled upon a wide leg jean….on the clearance rack…for $6!!! I convinced her to try them on…because they are one of the “it” denim styles for fall….I also grabbed a mod print of stripes in fall colors. She loved the stripes, but was skeptical…..she tried the outfit on….and success!!!
I convinced her to try on a few bodysuits…she was a little nervous….but realized how flattering a bodysuit really is on everyone….settled on a black one….and she paired it with her new, wide leg jeans…
Because fall to me screams “sweater weather”, I suggested we try and find a black or white sweater that goes with just about everything….we found a cream colored sweater with bell sleeves.
We also found these black joggers….Joggers are still very trendy as a pant style, and I knew she would love them because she loves athleisure. Just like leggings…black joggers can be dressed up or down.
I added up our items and realized we were under budget, so I suggested we pick a pair of fall heels…..she does not like heels….haha…so we found these ankle booties instead in a neutral color…..comfortable and a break from her usual sneakers and flip flops.
All this and we came in around $175!!!! Under budget and the shopping excursion took under two hours!!!! She looked gorgeous and felt happy when she left, which is so important to me!
