Putting it Together: Chunky Knits + Metallic Heels


Now here’s a fun (new favorite) outfit combination…  a chunky knit sweater, distressed denim, and metallic heels.  Top things off with a pair of sweet studs and you are ready to go!

 Splurge:  Sweater (on sale) // Skinny Jeans // Pumps (love the gunmetal) // Studs

Save:  Jeans (only $40!) // Sweater (on sale) // Pumps (can you believe they are only $35!) // Studs

 I’ve gotten some feedback that you’d like to see more budget-friendly clothing on the blog.   Going forward I will try my best to include both splurge and steal options whenever I can… and you can look forward to a lot more DIYs in the New Year.  (I’ve finally had the free time to sit down and work on some pretty fantastic projects!)

Lastly… I filmed a short little video for TJ Maxx + Refinery 29… you can check it out here!
