Hey there! With the holidays coming up, I'm being extra aware of how I spend and when I spend.  The beauty about being engaged to someone in finance is having extra help in building budgets and sticking to them.  As much as I love to hit my local mall, there's really nothing like shopping local and online via some favorite women's online shops.  Sure there are some staples I can't seem to find elsewhere other than the mall, but as long as I'm within budget, I'm good!  I know, being financially conscious and running a style blog don't always go hand in hand, or do they?  They totally can.  When I started this blog, I never intended to write style posts that included pieces the average working girl couldn't necessarily shop.  Sure I have a few fancy pieces, but you will rarely see them on here!  For the most part, I'm all about budget-friendly shopping.  

In today's post, I was super excited to challenge myself to putting together a fall outfit under $100.  Maybe it wasn't much of a challenge since my outfit ended up costing under $80 (without the optional necklace.)  Something I realized while cultivating this look, was the need for a pretty top to make it happen.  I don't know about you guys, but when I people watch, I don't usually check out their jeans, skirt or whatever they wear.  My eyes usually go to the style of their top and then of course, shoes.  The top I'm wearing in this post is from online contemporary shop, Gozon.  This shop absolutely offers quality clothing at affordable prices that fit my lifestyle.  Even if they're Los Angeles based, they still have an awesome way of catering to consumers nationwide with their merchandise.  I loved this top for two reasons: Bell sleeves and mustard yellow is such a pretty color this time of year.  It actually comes in a few other colors (green, burgundy and red) and even if I loved them all, I usually feel like yellow is my color.  Gozon boutique is actually already hosting Black Friday sales and this top is on sale for only $25 - uh Christmas present, anyone?  

Anyway, my jeans and similar booties are also available via the links above.  These pieces are really just staples in my closet, that I'm sure you guys already have in your closet or other similar items.  The best piece of advice I could leave you with when putting together budget-friendly, seasonal outfits, would absolutely be to invest in tops.  Having a fun selection never hurt nobody, am I right?  Anyway, I'm signing off for now!  I have a Black Friday related post coming soon so be sure to check back in.  

Xo,
Melissa Victoria
