For so long I have wanted to do a blog post with an affordable head-to-toe look within a certain price point. I’d tell myself, “Okay, Katey! Find everything [bag included!] for under $200.” Or I’d order a bunch of different shoes under $50 to do a blog post. Unfortunately, I always ended up disappointed. My intent is to share price-conscientious looks that are also fun to style! However, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve ordered something for an affordable blog post and then the dress has a tear, the top is so see through I wouldn’t recommend my dog wearing it or the bag breaks. But this time…..we did it, people! We did it! This head-to-toe look is $250 [with free shipping!] and I have to say I am quite pleased with the results. This look could have definitely cost well under $200, but I did go with a higher price point for the jacket so you could also wear it to work in a business casual environment. I know not everyone is as #blessed to live in Texas where it’s 100+ degrees 80% of the year so I figured you may want a light jacket as well! 😉
Now whether you are partial to them or not, jeans skirts are coming back! My 4th-grade heart was skipping a beat when I saw this skirt under $40. I love finding trendy items for a good price because if I’m suggesting something out of a reader’s comfort zone, I don’t want them to have buyer’s remorse if they aren’t wearing it a lot. I ended up loving the look of a jean skirt and wore it running around with Maxi last week! Also note, that I did size up in this skirt. One of my favorite brands for jackets is BB Dakota [they also have maternity!] and so I paired their suede Power Player Jacket with the skirt. Definitely don’t be intimidated of suede in warmer months. Fashion designers claim it as “summer leather” so you can pull it off if it suits your fancy. This entire look is from Red Dress Boutique. They carry a lot of my favorite brands [like BB Dakota] as well as items I’ve honestly never seen before like this cute Valentino dupe. I was reading online about the owner Diana. She had said she wanted her store to fill a void in the women’s market because she didn’t like going to the mall and seeing looks that everyone had or looks she couldn’t afford. Don’t we all think that while shopping?! *Raises hand*
My girlfriend, Ashley, and I also ordered a bunch of different dresses from the site to test out the quality of different items the site had. We both were extremely pleased [so much so that she called to tell me her thoughts on her order! haha]. They also have home decor with these gold pineapples I get asked about a lot! I hope you love this look as much as I loved putting it together! I had to title this blog post, “Blue Jean Baby” as an ode to this skirt! And if a jean skirt isn’t your thing for the summer, at least we can all get Tiny Dancer stuck in our head before the weekend, right?!
Thank you so much for reading!

Really loving all the blush, and I haven’t seen a denim skirt in such a long time! You paired it well with the rest of the outfit.

Love the neutral look with denim! <3
So if they are c/o items do you get to just go on the website and pick what you want? Since you said “your order” it was a little confusing! Thanks and happy weekend!!
Great question! So c/o can mean a few different things when it comes to the details of receiving the product. In this instance, I was given the opportunity to collaborate with this brand. So I placed an order [with my money] to test out the brand! If I like it and I want to share the brand with my readers I’m also given a gift card to complete the collaboration. The items I’m wearing here were part of the collaboration. However, I purchased items outside of it to test out so that was part of my order. I hope that makes more sense! Let me know if you have any more questions on the process, I have a blog post from a year ago that goes in depth on the collaboration process!
I love this look!! Thank you for picking a collaboration to share that is so affordable! Have a happy weekend!<3
Love this outfit and that denim skirts are making a comeback. They’re so perfect for the Texas summer.
I can’t believe how long it’s been since I’ve seen a denim skirt! You rock it and make me want to go back to my high school roots. Happy weekend!
I’m kicking myself for getting rid of my jean skirts from middle school! I’m loving the price point of this look too! Have a fabulous weekend 🙂
