ASSIGNMENT: Stretch the Back To School budget as far as possible.
PLAN: Buy the staples, on sale, and see how many ways they can be used to create totally different looks throughout the year.
Seems easy enough, right? Well, it is…no need to take notes, we’ve done it all for you!
It’s all about the basics: clothes that wear well, can be used in a multitude of ways and, hopefully, can be found on sale. Easily done at the Outlets at The Dells – we jumped into Maurices, where jeggings and graphic t-shirts were 50% off. So here’s the beginning:
Cute, right? Comfy, easy to wear, easy to wash…brilliant. But…it’s the first day, so we’ve got to do more than this. Add some cute sandals, sparkly bracelets a scarf and she’s “first day” appropriate:
Change the shoes to sneakers and throw on a denim vest? LOVE this look:
Take away the scarf, add a motion pendant and a vest and we’ve got Boho-fabulousness happening:
So, this takes us through fall, which is great. But we can use these basics in winter as well. boots, super-cute socks and a great jacket. Adorbs!
So, 1 pair of jeans. 1 t-shirt. ENDLESS possibilities. This is advanced math we can all enjoy!
