Mix and Match

We started an Instagram Contest last week called Fashion Fridays.  If you follow us on Instagram join in, it’s a great way to win $15!  Today I took a picture of my outfit and it got me thinking about how I always "mix and match".
I love to wear things from the boutique and try to most days but I also have a lot of pieces I incorporate into my wardrobe.  I have always loved to bargain shop and then at the same time have expensive taste so I mix it all together. 

Today is a perfect example of how my outfits usually turn out.  My Denim blouse I got from Goodwill back in College.  My skinnies jeans are from Wal-Mart for $15 and my boots are from the boutique.  Boots are by Liberty Black and retail for $245.  We have a few sizes left and let me tell you they are so comfortable!

I have my squash blossom bracelet on my mom gave from Santa Fe, it is my most treasured piece of jewelry, mixed in with some other silver bracelets. 
I love coming up with outfits on a budget but still using some of your valued items.  I tend to splurge on boots and jewelry, there investments to me that I know I’ll always keep and wear. 

You don’t have to have all the money in the world to put a great outfit together, just pair things together, be confident in the look you come up with and have FUN!

Don't wait for the trends, set the trends!  XOXO The Rusty Rose
