MIXING HIGH & LOW PRICE POINTS
One of my favorite strategies to keep a budget friendly wardrobe is to mix higher priced items with lower priced items. It's even better when the budget friendly pieces look high-quality like this sweater I found at Meijer for only $8.
I was lucky to snag these liquid leather leggings from Omoni Boutique last year during a sale, but normally these super luxe leggings could cost you a pretty penny. Splurging on some of your favorite pieces and mixing them with a budget friendly option is the best way to have both a high-quality yet realistic wardrobe.
While the majority of my outfit is from the outlets or the clearance rack, I splurged on these boots because I know I'll wear them for many winters to come. Yes, they're expensive, but they're waterproof, super comfortable, and very well made. Splurge on a few key pieces and then fill the holes with other budget friendly options.
