Ebates $150 Challenge

I'm so jazzed to be apart of the Ebates $150 outfit challenge. Ebates asked yours truly along with some other fabulous bloggers to create a fall look for $150 or less.
Check out the looks the other bloggers created: Kristin from BonBon Rose Girls, Jennifer from Fabfatale and Tiffany from I Am Style-Ish.

I've been shopping with Ebates for years and am a huge fan. As you know I'm all about fabulous style on a real girl budget so I was thrilled to use my shopping skills and Ebates cash back to pull together a head to toe look.

If you don't know about Ebates, you should! It's a fabulous site that gives you cash back on your online purchases. You go to Ebates, sign into your accout, (Sign up HERE), search for the store you want to shop, Ebates lists the % of cash back you will get from your total order. Click the website name and it sends you directly there tracking your purchase. You will get an email telling you how much cash back you got and viola it's in your Ebates account. Happy Shopping!
 






 
I wanted to put together a look that was fun and feminine. 
One of fall's biggest trends is the peplum top so I was on a hunt to find the perfect one. I got this from my favorite online store, ASOS. I wanted to keep the pants casual and saw these at American Eagle, they are super comfortable, fit great and the price was amazing (under $30)! I've been wearing these jeans non-stop, I'm obsessed. You know I love a good animal print and these leopard booties add the perfect amount of fun. Every outfit needs to be finished off with some fabulous accessories. I topped my look off with a large statement clutch and gold earrings. Bring it on fall!

Fab. Forever Finds


 Forever 21 has a TON of stellar accessories going on right now. I picked a few of the necklaces I'm currently crushing on, and yes they are equally as fabulous in person. The earring situation is also pretty amazing. If you are looking to update your outfits, I suggest starting with some new jewels that won't break the budget! Happy Shopping!

Vintage Treasure

Labor Day weekend I spent a couple of days at my parents house. The guys went golfing so my Mom, Sister and I headed out for some treasure hunting aka shopping. I picked up these fabulous vintage clip-on earrings for $9 bucks! My Mom and Sister both got some amazing vintage bracelets so I would call it a successful treasure hunt!
 
If you are ever near Lena, IL I would suggest stopping into Lena Mercantile, thats where these little beauties were found.

Fringe

This past weekend I spent all day Saturday with friends frolicking about the city just having a great time. The weather was humid but not too hot. It was the perfect weather to pull out this new fringe cardigan/ kaftan/jacket I bought while I was in NYC a couple weeks ago. I'm obsessed with the vintage scarf look and the fringe detail.
