Like everyone else right now I've done enough online window shopping this week to last a lifetime. Lately, I've been spending way too much time on my phone, which means way too much time on Instagram, which also means way too much time spent oohing and aahing over some of my favorite fashion girl outfits. And some of the pieces I've noticed consistently popping up on my feed? Leather pants, minimalist tanks, and preppy lightweight knits. I love how effortless it is to style all of those pieces, so yes, my current shopping list features a ton of them.
I'm not shy about splurging on a designer bag or coat I consider worth the investment, but for the most part, I like to shop on the cheap. With that in mind, the bulk of the items I've been eyeing are all reasonably priced at $250 and under. And contrary to what you might think, yup, it's absolutely possible to look like a bonafide fashion girl without spending your entire rent check. From sleek everyday sneakers to elevated spring dresses read ahead to see all of the affordable finds currently filling up my bookmarks tab.
For my leather jackets, I like to go the genuine leather route: I find that they last longer and can take a beating without looking dingy. This is one of the most affordable ones I've spotted all season.
