Lacing Up a Budget Friendly Outfit: Boxing Day Errand Style

Budget friendly casual style is my kind of style. 💰

⋆ Now I’m not saying I don’t love expensive things. I mean if I did, I’d be lying! But that being said, if I can find stylish items that are cute and affordable, to me, that’s a double win I can’t ignore. I would rather spend money on my family more than myself, so I tend to look for fashion that will hold up and not break the bank.

⋆ Check out this affordable outfit I put together for an every-day casual look. Super perfect for going out to pick up your Boxing Day sales today! This outfit incorporates one of my favorite current trends: combat boots. To get this look, you can go for the pricier Dr. Marten’s for around $200 CDN or check these babies out at Ardene’s for only $30 CDN! I won’t say the quality will be the same—obviously you will get better quality and real leather with Dr. Marten’s or another comparable brand—BUT, if you’re just looking to rock this trend without spending much money, these are a great option. They’re super cute and look pretty close to the real thing. I’ve worn them out to the post office in about 0° C weather and they’ve been great. I haven’t felt cold or wet from melt. I also like that they have a side zip for easy peasy put-on and take-off.

These prices are pre-Boxing Day Sale - you can probably pick everything up for way cheaper today!

⋆ Pair these boots with your favorite boyfriend jeans or distressed high rise denim and you’re off to a running start! I bought mine online from Vici Collection (everything in this boutique is a must purchase) in the style Bailey. Unfortunately, last time I looked, mine are sold out but keep an eye out! I would size them exactly as you normally fit. I went up a size because I thought the boutique would likely fit smaller girls but I actually think I could have gone with my normal size. I found these Dani distressed high rise denim that are also super cute!

⋆ Hold them up with my favorite leopard print belt from H&M (currently sold out!) or this similar one from Mark’s. Honestly, this belt is a closet must-have! When not using it with your denim, you can use it to cinch a pretty summer dress, T-shirt dress, cardi, or blanket scarf. The uses are seriously endless and you can bet this print in a thinner belt won’t go out of style quickly – it’s a classic print and not big enough to be gaudy.

⋆ I must admit this is the kind of look I wear most days—casual, comfortable, neutral and classic. Being a true Canadian girl, I’m usually cold so sweaters are a definite need! I found this knit sweater (in black of course) and sized up from a L to an XL to give an oversized look I could front tuck to show off a bit of belt. For $16 CDN I’m not sure why I didn’t buy more colours! Find this steal and do it. I do find that Ardene’s fits smaller than other stores.

⋆ Get yourself a good pair of gold hoop earrings or check out my cheap knock-off also at Ardene’s ($10 CDN for 2 pairs of different sizes! Yes m’am!) and you’re good as gold! A gold hoop goes with everything, anytime, anywhere.

⋆ Is this an outfit you would wear and feel comfortable pulling off? I honestly think this look would be great on a size 0 up to any plus size! I also don’t feel out of place wearing this style in the middle-age range. Would you wear it? Let me know below, I’d love to hear from you! Have a great Boxing Day! I hope your Christmas was merry and bright!

Oh Me, Oh My: Boxing Day Sales Already!

I’m not usually on the ball. ⚽🎄

◉ You’ll normally find me rushing around December 24th, trying to wrap presents, throw something in the oven, and bake some sort of magical cookies to make my kid feel all Christmasy. Moms, you know the drill. But, with a new business comes new goals and I’m on the BALL this year girl! (only in some areas though—I confess my husband has been doing most of the wrapping and stupid ‘Elf on the Shelf’ shenanigan’s because I’ve had NOTHING left in me at the end of the day). 🤷🏼‍♀️

◉ This year, I’m even on top of Boxing Day sales before Christmas. I mean can I get a “WHOOT WHOOT” from the sisters in the back?! So hear me, hear me! I’ve found some awesome deals for you that are on now until December 28th so get on them!! I’m looking to get some for myself PLUS make my first business goal of ‘Star Beauty Guide’ this month so let’s go peeps!!

LimeLife forever. (Spoken in ‘Wakanda forever’ voice - if you don’t know what I’m talking about we can’t be friends.🤣)

◉ One of the Holiday Collections that first drew me to LimeLife to begin with was the “Wizard of Eyes Collection.” My business mentor (who was just a random amaze gal I was following at the time because I loved her makeup videos) did this super awesome look with the green eyeliner and I was like, ok, what is this stuff?? I am digging this! I just found out this Collection is now on major sale!! You get 5 dual-ended liners in 10 sweet colours now for only $70 CDN (from it’s previous $100 CDN price – Limited Edition and available while supplies last!). You’re welcome.

I was like, ok, what is this stuff?? I am digging this!

◉ Then we’ve got our “Buy One Get One Half Off” Lippy sale. If you need new lipstick, lip gloss, or lipliners, this is seriously the time to buy them for the New Year! Why pay more in a few days when you can get them on sale now?! If you can stand not to use them all, keep some on hand for your favourite gal pal or daughter’s upcoming birthday gifts!! They’re a serious steal at $36 CDN for the combo! I mean really.

◉ There’s so many more sales right now I can’t keep up. Plus I have to go try to make life magical for the human child here (that’s for another post!) so I’m going to drop them down below and trust you will check them all out on my LimeLife website! I can’t wait to wish you all a Merry Christmas in my next post…ok, I kinda already am…so I have to go write that too!

◉ So, you know how I always say drop me a line below? I’m saying it again but this time let me know if you ordered anything so I can give you a shout out AND if you need any help I will personally get in touch with you and help you shop online! Yup, that’s right. Personal service here!! Let me know if you have any questions or need my help friend!

Much love! I appreciate you!
