I’m so excited to share my finds for this month’s monthly series called $200 Clothing Budget.  A lot of people think you have to spend a lot of money to look like a million bucks.  Well, you don’t and I can show you how.

Last month, after purchasing three high-quality pieces for less than $125, we had $106.90 left.  We are adding this amount to our March’s budget.  So, for this month we have a total of $306.90 to spend.

Keep in mind that we are building a cohesive wardrobe that you can mix and match for seasons to come.  For March, I was able to locate some high-quality items that are timeless in style at affordable prices. Here’s what I found for less than $150…

High Waist Skinny Trousers ($38):  I love wearing trousers to work and dinner after. They are simple but chic.  We can definitely pair these trousers with the striped blouse we bought last month and complete the look with nice pumps.  Or, swap out my pumps for a pair of nice ballet for that a la Audrey Hepburn look.

Sunglasses ($29.99):  Not only am I OCD about putting SPF on my face every single day, I’m also OCD for wearing sunglasses.  This pair of retro style sunglasses is sexy and stylish – perfect for any outfit.

Trench Coat ($79.99):  A trench coat is beyond chic.  Every girl must have one in her closet.  Why spend a fortune on an iconic Burberry Trench Coat when you can get a similar style for a lot less.

Again, I didn’t spend every dime because I wanted to apply the balance of $145.60 to our April budget so that we have more to spend!

Stay tuned for what is to come in April!  Until then, have a great weekend, and I will see you on the blog next week.
