Budget-Friendly Spring Fashion Looks

Budget-friendly Spring Fashion

Spring is the perfect time to spruce up the wardrobe for the warm months ahead. I always enjoy picking up a few new pieces to add to the rotation, but in the process I try to be mindful of how much I’m spending to keep my budget in check.

Today I’m sharing with you three cute new outfits I’ve picked up for spring that incorporate some of this year’s fashion trends-including fringe, cold-shoulders, and geometric prints. Even better, all of these outfits were purchased at Target, Wal-mart, and K-mart- making them budget-friendly!

Dressed Up Fringe

Styled With: Tank-$4 on Clearance (Target), Skirt-$20 BOGO 50 (Target), Sweater- $4 on Clearance (JCPenney), High Heels-$10 on Clearance (K-mart), Necklace $3 on Clearance (Burkes Outlet)= $41 Total

This jacquard fringe mini is the ideal skirt to go straight from the office to date night. Although the skirt and tank are pretty basic pieces, adding in a colorful cardigan and cute necklace really dress up the look, making it perfect for spring.

Styled with: Geometric Print Dress with Zip-Up Front-$20 on Sale (K-mart), Belt-$5 (Wal-mart), Pumps-$8 on Clearance (Target)= $33 Total

This dress has such a gorgeous print that you’ll definitely be noticed wherever you go. I really love the zip-front detail and the geometric pattern, and I chose to add the blue belt to really accentuate the waist. Perfect for special occasions and family outings.

  5. Hi, I am Ada. I have stopped by before. Three great Early Spring Outfits. I particularly love that geo artsy dress. So cute and feminine. Perfect for Easter, too.

    I host a linkup on Thursdays. I would love to have you linkup with me. Thanks.

  7. These dresses are so cute!! I’ve been really wanting to buy some cute dresses for the spring and summer months. I really don’t have any and it’s quite sad haha

  8. That geometric print is so cute! I can never seem to have an eye for putting basics together with things that will make it a stylish outfit. I need to stop by those stores and strike up some inspiration!

  9. These are great! I was in Target just the other day gushing over all the cute boho style clothes they have. I can’t wait for next payday so I can go snag a few items!

  10. What amazing deals! I never get that lucky. I usually shop sales, but never get these kinds of deals. And all three outfits look so cute on you!

    1. Thanks Leslie! πŸ™‚ I do most of my shopping in off seasons, when everything is clearanced down and I try to buy versatile pieces that can be worn in different ways.

  11. Dresses are my go-to…so easy and quick to pair with a cardigan for chillier mornings.

    I do like outfit #1 the best!

    I like how you did budget styling. When I see people on blogs wearing $250 everything (like, not total), I’m like get out of here. LOL

    1. Thank-you! I love how easy dresses are too and you can make them casual or dressy depending on the accessories you pair with it. & I feel the exact same about $250 pieces. I mean maybe one day when I’m rich…nah, who am I kidding I’ll still shop at Target-haha.

  12. I have the shirt and skirt from Walmart in different colors. I like the way you paired those together. I’ll be featuring mine on my blog soon. Great minds think alike πŸ˜‰

  13. So cute Cara! I love the dress in the last pictures. You are adorable and I love that you are styling affordable clothes.

    Came over from Amaze Me Monday. πŸ™‚

  14. All of these looks are gorgeous!!! I especially love that last dress!!! And black and white is always so classic, love it with that pop of teal.

  15. I love all three looks, Cara! They’re perfect for spring. Some trends I’m loving for spring are soft details like lace, and I’m loving the rose quartz and serenity color trends I’ve been seeing in stores! Great post!

  16. You are an angel!! I love all these so much and I am the same kind of shopper!! Target is my friend, lol!! Hope you have a glorious day, you look so beautiful!

  17. You look SO adorable in them all
    Love your hair in the white/print dress!!!
    That turquoise cardigan is great with the black/white look. Just enough POP!
