Faux Leather Moto Jacket Under $40

I’ve long wanted a faux leather moto jacket, but even those I liked were a bit above my budget. What’s even worse, because I am petite, many of the jackets I found didn’t fit me right in the sleeves. But when I stumbled upon this faux leather jacket from Nordstrom Rack and realized it was only $32, I added it to my cart immediately! Since it was so affordable I was even able to take it to the Nordstrom Rack near my house and get it altered so it fits me perfectly.

I decided to pair my jacket with my favorite black turtleneck for this look, although I have worn it with a black silk cami and loved it also. These black pointy toe booties from Forever 21 are the perfect addition to this edgy look.

Cozy Cardigans Under $50

There’s nothing more cozy than a sweater during the winter months. I usually end up wearing one almost every day to work. When buying an oversized cardigan like the one I’m wearing in this post, I try to pair it with a more fitted undershirt and skinny jeans. This keeps everything balanced and doesn’t make it look like I’m swimming in the sweater!

Unfortunately, this grey cardigan from A New Day (at Target) isn’t online yet. (You can certainly find it in stores.) So I wanted to share some of my favorite other cardigans under $50. Enjoy!



Asymmetrical Button Down Top For $14

I am constantly looking for affordable pieces I can wear to work. Button down tops have long been an office staple, so I was so excited when I found this on-trend take on a classic look. The best part? It’s only $14!

I absolutely love the asymmetrical look of this top and how the buttons are off center. The collar and tie cuff sleeves are also a fun addition to this top.

Many of you have asked me if I’ve had trouble ordering from SheIn. The honest truth? No. But I also try to order strategically from them. For instance, I stay away from pants (mostly because I have to order petite) and try to only order tops I feel confident will work even if they’re slightly big or small. Sweaters, outerwear and loose fitting tops like the one I’m wearing are typically a safe bet. I hope this helps you guys feel more comfortable when browsing their site!
