In My Fashion Dreams…

August 16, 2014

I’ve been so sick with the flu the last few days. I was resting in my bed most of the day, and didn’t have time to do a traditional blog, so today’s post is a bit different. Hope you still enjoy!

Byron and I are heading to New York this Fall for a week long business trip. While I was resting, I was messing around on Polyvore trying to create my own outfit inspirations for the trip.

I thought I would share one of them with you for fun. Some of the items are way out of my budget right now, but I can always get the look for less, or use something similar that I already own. This is generally how I look at bloggers or magazines. If the outfit is out of my price range as a whole, I just try to make do, and get the general concept of the look. The clutch & lipstick are two items I may end up purchasing from this look, but we’ll see. The coat and dress are beautiful pieces that I would love to own one day, however I would definitely look for a less expensive alternative. I listed the actual items in this post, along with a less expensive alternative that I think is just as cute as a whole.
ps. I would wear black tights with this fall look and I buy mine at Target.

Trench Coat: Gucci Suede Wrap Trench Coat on sale (alternate look)|Dress: Bay Fard Jacquard  Dress (alternate look)|Sunnies: Tory Burch (alternate look)|Clutch: Ann Taylor|Boots: Tory Burch (alternative)|LipStick:Nars (alternative)


Hope you enjoyed this post.

If you feel like making a fall inspiration post, make one on Polyvore, and send me your look on Instagram using #inmyfashiondreams.

Until next time.
