Anthropologie Altay Buttondown (red plaid no longer available) : $88
You can find plaid flannel shirts just about anywhere now. The one I choose was the Croft & Barrow Plaid Flannel Shirt from Kohl's : on sale for $21.60 and I used an additional 30% off coupon.
Approximate savings : $73
Anthropologie Ruffled Sweater Vest (taupe no longer available) : $118
It took me longer to find a similar vest than I thought. It was one of those items where you see them a million times, but then when you are looking for it you can't find it. I finally found this one at a local boutique for $20!
Savings of : $98
The jeans, I've already had for some time (my trusty Apt 9 Flares from Kohl's). Same with the boots from JC Penney. The druzy necklace is on clearance at Michael's for $1.99!
I love these pieces together, but I know I am going to wear them a bunch with other items as well. I am loving the open, flowy trend in sweaters lately. And I know this vest will look great belted too. I know it's been pretty casual around here, and in looking at my schedule I think the rest of 2013 will follow suit. It's funny that I've read from a few other Michigan fashion bloggers that they are feeling this same type of casual comfort this winter.
As you can tell, I love sales and finding items on a budget. I had done another post similar to this here. I will try to do them as often as I can, so that you too can see you don't have to spend a ton to look and feel great!
