I’m super excited to share this outfit with you today! I was asked by the Beverly Center to put together a fall look for their #ShowUsYourStyle fashion event. A group of Los Angeles bloggers were given $250 gift card to shop at the Beverly Center for an outfit to highlight some fall trends. This is the first time I’ve participated in a fashion challenge so it was really exciting – and also hard! It was kind of overwhelming to go into a huge mall and pick out an entire outfit. When I go shopping I usually pick up one or two items that I feel are missing from my closet – I don’t usually go shopping for a full outfit from head to toe!
I picked out this faux leather jacket first. I feel like a good leather jacket it a key piece that everyone needs for fall and I didn’t have one in my closet! So I decided to build my look around the jacket. Leather and even faux leather jackets are a little pricier so a lot of my $250 budget went towards this jacket. But I think it’s worth it!
I also loved these joggers from H&M. Chic sportswear is a major trend for fall. I’ve been seeing joggers everywhere! I thought the texture of this pair added more interest to my monochromatic outfit. I also thought this embellished tee would be the perfect way to add a little more glam to a casual outfit. You’ll be seeing a lot of embellished sweaters this fall as well. I added nude heels, mirrored sunnies and Forever 21 silver ring to complete my look.
My goal was to add basic items (the leather jacket and nude heels) to balance out the trendier items (the joggers and embellished tee) so that my outfit didn’t feel too over-the-top trendy.
We were allowed to use two of our own pieces to add to the look so I took the straps off my Madewell bag to turn it into a clutch and added my silver Stella and Dot bangle to go with the Forever 21 ring.
I found all of these items at the Beverly Center! Here’s the breakdown of my outfit:
My goal was to get as much as I could with the $250. Unfortunately, none of these items were on sale when I bought them but I was under a time limit so I couldn’t wait. But during the Labor Day weekend most of these items were on sale so it’s possible to get this whole outfit for even less!
This is a fashion challenge which means my look is being entered into a contest and will be judged by three top LA Bloggers for a chance to win a $1,000 Beverly Center shopping spree. How crazy is that?! And the great news is YOU can also be entered to win a shopping spree by voting on my look (or someone else’s) on The Beverly Center Facebook page! I’d also love for you to come to the event on Thursday, September 18th to hear the results of the challenge and party with me! There will be food, drinks, photo booths and fun! I’d love to see you there!
I don’t think the Facebook voting is up yet but when it is I’d really appreciate your vote. I’ve never participated in something like this and of course it would be amazing to win. Thanks!
