The Budget Babe Round-Up: Essential Items for Fall 2018

The perfect Fall wardrobe checklist for 2018! I'm taking this shopping with me
If there's one thing that makes the end of summer more tolerable, it's the fall wardrobe! We are more open to the idea of losing sunny days if it means replacing them with cozy cardigans, ankle booties, out favorite denim, and rich fall colors . All the usuals are here, but we've rounded up some specific items we're loving along with a few new trendier pieces - starting at just $12!



Rosie Huntington-Whitely's Striped Button Down and Black Blazer Look for Less

Rosie Huntington-Whitely Striped Button Down and Black Blazer Look for Less
Rosie Huntington-Whitely looks runway-fierce in a Paige Denim button down shirt and high rise jeans with a black blazer draped over her shoulders. She amplifies these wardrobe staples trendy rigid sunglasses, suede mules, and a Gucci chain strap shoulder bag. Her personalized iPhone case is from CHAOS for $216, but there are tons of sites like Etsy where you can have one done for much less!



Kailan's 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Haul Review

Kailan's 2018 Nordstrom Sale Haul Try-On
Usually when I order clothes online, I always return at least one item. Not this time! My Nordstrom Sale picks did not fail me and I'll tell you now: if there are sizes left in any of these items, go for it! Since the stock is dwindling down at this point, I have suggestions for alternatives, along with some quick styling ideas!



Gigi Hadid's Chanel Sequin Flap Bag & Vogue Eyewear Look for Less

Gigi Hadid Blue Sequin Chanel Bag Look for Less
Gigi Hadid's jeans and tank look is always a good idea, but her accessory game here is one to note. Her blue sequin Chanel bag retails at $3,600...quite the investment! And you know it's a unique piece when it's tough to find a solid look-alike for less cash; especially one that doesn't look cheap. Her sunglasses are actually from her own line with Vogue Eyewear, and are fairly affordable compared to most designer glasses at $140. We found you a blue oval pair for much less though from Free People!



Natalie Portman's High Neck Blouse and Slingback Flats

Natalie Portman High Neck Blouse Look for Less
Natalie Portman's joyous grin goes well with her fun and flirty high-neck blouse in a bright hue. The ruffled blouse we found from River Island is on major sale for $20 (down from $65) and is the perfect answer to your search for a standout top! We love how she wore this with a pair of high waisted jeans and Dior slingback flats - a mix of dressy and casual can be done! Cateye sunglasses are a must this summer and you can never go wrong with a black crossbody to match.
