Someone asked me the other day how I got the idea for this series – it all started back in 2013 when a girlfriend of mine challenged me to find as many great pieces as I could for less than $20 – she said it in an “I bet you can’t” kind of way, which totally motivated me to prove her wrong. The series was originally called 20 under $20 & it used to be a random collage of items – see the first (slightly cringe-worthy) post here.
Over the years, I’ve shifted it to feature head-to-toe looks with a slight increase in the dollar amount. While it has naturally evolved since the beginning, I still love putting together these posts for you! Even if you’re not looking to add to your closet right now, my goal is to give you some seasonal outfit inspiration with items you might already own.
I found some great pieces for this month’s roundup and since several of you have mentioned how much you’re loving leopard this season, I tried to incorporate as much of it as I could into these looks. I’d love to hear which one is your favorite!
