Throwback Thursday: Alessandra Ambrosio's Plaid Shirtdress and Fur Vest Look for Less

Alessandra Ambrosio wears a plaid shirtdress with a fur vest, opaque tights and Western style ankle booties.
Trends come and go in fashion, so it's nice to see this Alessandra Ambrosio look from 2011 could still be worn today - with no adjustments - and still be totally on point. The model started with a classic plaid shirtdress and then added a faux fur vest, opaque black tights and black ankle booties to bring the dress into fall. Her fringe bag and Western-style booties give the look her signature boho vibe without being over-the-top. I love that I already own all of these pieces, so I just have to shop my closet to get this casual fall look! If you're missing something, read on for our expertly curated picks under $40 each...

Fall Outfit Pinspiration: Check Shirt, Fur Vest, Hunter Wellies

Fall outfit inspiration featuring check shirt, fur vest and Hunter wellies
As soon as I discovered fashion blogger Lauren McBride (who also happens to be a Connecticut-based blogger and second-time new mom like myself), I was hooked on her relatable yet enviable style. This outfit - which is all over Pinterest - is a perfect example of her style: A mix of classic and cool, from the check shirt, to the on-trend faux fur vest, to the classic never-goes-out-of-style rain boots. To recreate her look for less, I found all the pieces I needed at Target. Finish the casual fall ensemble with some cozy leg warmers like this pair at Payless (just $6.49) and beanie ($7.49).
