If you are anything like me then you probably have a huge want/wish list when it comes to designer key pieces that you want to add to your closet. But the reality is, that we can't always splurge on those designer shoes or handbags every month. I do love to splurge on designer handbags, but I have to make sure to save up and pay off the rest of my bills beforehand.. you know the responsible thing to do :)
Today I've partnered with JCPenney to create a fun summer outfit and how to add character and personality to an outfit by mixing high and low end pieces with fun bright pops of color and whites.
The trick is finding key pieces that are affordable. These pieces can be bold colors like this fun red dress I am wearing, loud prints, and funky patterns because you aren't spending a lot of money on them. You don't have to love them 4 years from now, so make them as trendy as you want. Just like this fun red stars dress from JCPenney mixed with their distressed denim jacket I paired over the dress.
It was easy for me to pair my designer handbag and shoes with this outfit because when I decide to splurge on them I want them neutral so they will match everything I own in my closet. A classic pair of nude pumps. Check! A taupe colored (4 season) bag. Check!
Having both designer shoes and a handbag sure made this affordable outfit complete and such a fun casual summer date night look.
