No matter how many years it’s been since I was in school I just can’t quit that internal seasonal shift – summer begins when school is out! As the school year winds up all over the country I think it’s safe to say that summer has arrived and with that, it’s time for another Style Your Budget post! If you’re new around here, Style Your Budget helps you shop smarter by showing you one outfit prompt styled at five drastically different price points.
One of the things that makes Style Challenges work so well is that we don’t provide you with the clothes. That may sound like a bad thing at first, but I promise it isn’t. By providing you with a style prompt rather than a box of clothes, you get to decide what the outfit ultimately looks like (and how much it costs).
If you already own all the pieces in the prompt you can shop your closet for a free outfit. Woohoo! However, if you need to fill in a gap in your wardrobe you get to choose which store, and more importantly how much you are going to spend, to fill in that gap.
This look is from the Style Challenges Summer 2019 Capsule Wardrobe. Bright accessories paired with closet staples are my favorite kind of outfits that are stylish for summer without adding tons of layers (aka heat) — check out my recent YouTube video for more summer outfit tips. Building a cohesive and affordable casual wardrobe doesn’t have to be tricky and Style Challenges is here to help. It’s as easy as 1-2-3… we promise! 1. I give you a shopping list so you’ll know exactly what you need. 2. Check off your list by shopping your closet or using my recommendations. 3. You’ll get a complete guide of daily outfit ideas using the pieces from your list. It’s that easy!

We always recommend investing in the best quality that your budget allows when it comes to your closet staples. However, if you are trying out new trends, fluctuating between sizes, or need a more budget-conscious option we hope this post has helped you see that you truly can feel confident in what you are wearing no matter where you shop or how much you can afford to spend.
