I'm so excited to launch my partnership with a friend who shares the same love for blogging,  Billie Carroll. We've always been a big fan of the "splurge vs steal" features in the mags, so we decided to recreate it on our own. For those cold gloomy winter days, there's nothing better than layering a button down shirt with a warm and cozy sweater and a pair of skinny jeans. This look is definitely taking over the streets of NYC this winter and I can totally see why. Well, Billie and I are showing you how to rock this trend for less, since we all love to save money! So, let's put you to the test. Can you pick out who's wearing the more expensive outfit?... It's mine! I'm obsessed with all things Helmut Lang, but for a standard sweater, the Michael Stars one definitely works great. Yes, I'm definitely guilty of splurging on pieces that I just can't resist, but if you can look chic and stay within budget, why not? We definitely got a little crazy when shooting these looks, but we had the best time. No joke, about 10 puppies past by, so we just had to borrow 2 for the shoot... how cute are they?! I'm loving this new feature and hope you are too. I promise when it gets a little warmer you can count on it again. Thanks for stopping by! XO
