Fall Wishlist under $50

I've been working on weight loss. I'm down 7 pounds and I'm really excited. I felt bad in my clothes so I did 2 orders from Thred Up for some clothing and went to the thrift store. So I'm sort of working with a capsule wardrobe somethings still fit and look nice. There are a few items that I want for fall and just in general. I also don't want to spend a lot since hopefully these items won't fit next fall so everything is under $50.



Navy Pants- A lot of the clothes I got are green and pink so navy is a great neutral for that. These Alfani pants are a front runner they come in short length and they have a little tummy control.


Jacket- A good fall jacket is important for me. I wear a lot of sleeveless tops and dresses so a jacket can help change up the look. I do a lot of networking and I don't always want to take a sweater. I feel like the striped blazer would go with most of my items but I've been wanting a brown leather jacket for a while.
   Statement Sleeves- This is the most trendy piece of the list. I've tried on a few tops with dramatic sleeves but I felt like they overwhelmed me. I think what will be key for me is to keep the shirt fitted and the sleeves pretty fitted until it reaches the end.

  
White blouse- This is such a simple item that I really like having in my wardrobe.

Renaissance Fair Mermaid

Every year for one of my friend's birthday we go to the Renaissance fair. I always like to put together a different costume for each trip. This year a lot of our group were mermaids. I wanted to do a rose gold/ pink look.I got this skirt from Amazon, make sure you check the size chart and it can be made to your measurements. I wanted to do something temporary to the hem because I wasn't sure if I want it hemmed for flats or heels. I used safety pins to do a temporary pick-up in the skirt. It made it shorter and added a little volume to the bottom to look more like a tail.

Skirt- Amazon (exact), Bag- Sleepyville Critters (exact, backpack version,crab) Bra- Handmade (similar), Earrings- Mom's (similar starfish, similar crab),Hairclips- Handmade (Similar
Some girls wore a bathing suit top, I went with a bra because I wanted to add shells and rhinestones and I wanted support for all day. So I got a $7 bra from Target and embellished it. It held up pretty well. The only issue was the bead straps the glue doesn't like to move around so I had to keep those attached with safety pins.

I got most of this outfit from ThredUp.  I placed 2 orders this month. I want clothes that fit and I feel confident in but I don't want to spend a lot while I'm trying to get healthier.
