Happy Saturday!! So, this week, I asked y’all what you wanted to know from me as far as some of my favorite things and places to shop. The winning categories were budget friendly, online clothing options, so let’s see what I can come up with to help y'all out!!
You may be surprised to know that while I do have multiple western boutiques I absolutely love, tons of my pieces come from places that are actually far from western. I’m a firm believer in buying individual pieces you love and putting them together to fit your own style and vibe. I am not a person who buys a complete outfit from anywhere, ever.
So, that being said, one of my absolute favorite places to get tops online at super affordable prices is J Crew Factory. I shop the factory sale page and you can find some amazing deals. Since it’s a factory page to start with, things are already at a huge discount, but if you shop sale or clearance on top of that, its major savings. They will also occasionally do sale on sale, and you can lots of times get prices that are up to 70% off the already sale or clearance price. As my great-aunt would say, its practically free. Don’t miss out.
Booties aren’t really clothing, but I constantly get asked about my footwear. I get asked where I get them, what brand, how many pairs I have (I don’t even know truthfully), how small my feet actually are, the list goes on…so, I thought I’d throw in a great place for boots. Rivertrail Mercantile is one of my absolute favorite places to shop boots and booties. They too, have a great sale section. You’ll notice a trend that I rarely shop places that don’t have great sales. I would definitely not be able to have all the things I have if it wasn’t for sales! I hardly ever pay full price for anything, trust me. So, Rivertrail has a huge assortment of boots & booties, and they always have something on sale. My foot is abnormally small, so I am fortunate in that my size is usually always left in the sale section and they’re trying to get rid of them!!
Another way I find great deals is the Like to Know It app. Some of you are familiar I’m sure, but some may not be. I’ve been using this app for years. You find people (I usually find them on Instagram) whose style you like and then you follow them in the LTK app. They post outfits with links to everything they wore. They are great about posting sale items and good finds and deals. A lot of the people I follow in this app are not western fashion at all, but again, I’m just looking for pieces, not a whole outfit.
I will share with you 2 of my favorite western inspirations. They are both on Instagram but only one is on LTK. Allison Wiens is on the LTK app if you would like to give her a follow. Her Instagram is also great if you’re into western lifestyle. She always shares her daily adventures, and she is a super cute boy mom. I love her. She is a rep wesleysboutique.com which is a fantastic western boutique. I get things from there and of course; they always have sales! They also offer Sezzle so you can pay things out over time, which is a great option.
Probably my all time, most favorite style inspiration (besides Dolly of course) is Brooke Latka. She is THE cutest and I love pretty much every single thing about her style. She is on Instagram and shares her outfits there. She is a rep for allurewyoming.com. You know it, there’s a sale page! A lot of her things come from here, but she seems to style her outfits like I do. She always has an awesome piece she tends to build her outfit around, whether it’s a fabulous vintage jacket or a super cute vintage graphic tee, she always has a standout piece she makes a killer outfit with.
I hope this gives y’all some new inspiration and maybe a few places online you haven’t checked out before!! As always, watch my Instagram and/or Facebook stories for the outfits I post and always reach out if you have any questions about something I’m wearing!! Thank you all for following along and I’ll see you back here Monday with a beef recipe!!
Enjoy your weekend,
