My Favorite Broke Girl Basics

If you follow me on Instagram, you know today or a few days ago depending on when you're reading this I posted about the struggle generate new content when my college girl budget doesn't quite allow me to shop all the time. So I thought I'd share some affordable staples in my closet.



1. Tee Shirt Dresses
In case you didn't know, it's H-O-T in Texas. So I live in t-shirt dresses for probably 80% of the year. Easy pieces that can be dressed up and worn season to season are my absolute favorite and tee-shirt dresses are the epitome of that. My favorite is this one from Everlane, that just got released in four new colors. It's under 40 dollars, and an absolute staple in my wardrobe as you can see from how often it appears on my Instagram. I'll absolutely be picking up the white and navy versions.





2. Denim

One of the biggest myths I've heard while blogging is that good denim has to cost a fortune. I've found that couldn't be further from the truth. My two favorite pairs of jeans are under $100 and have served me so well. First is the cheeky straight leg from Everlane, these retail for $78 but are worth every penny. I wear them at least once a week and they still look absolutely brand new.

The other pair is this pair of white skinny jeans from Gap. I'd be searching high and low for a new pair of white jeans for quite some time when I came across these. The Gap was having an amazing after Christmas sale, and I snagged these for only $12. I know what you're thinking, and I did buy two. They're currently marked down for $35, which is still an amazing price as well.

For things like denim skirts, I often turn to the Madewell sale section. They offer a student discount on top of their sale prices when you shop in-store, and it's been my saving grace when it comes to shopping from Madewell. They're currently running a sale on sale, and if I were you I'd check out this skirt, and this skirt.


3. Good Shoes

If there's one thing I spend way too much money on, it's shoes. But just because I like to buy shoes, doesn't mean I like to spend a fortune on them. When I'm looking for fun shoes, I usually turn to places like Nasty Gal and Target. Not only are they always having sales, but their shoes have always been great quality. 

So here are my top three broke girl basics, and some pretty great places to shop them. If you're looking to shop anything I'm wearing on my Instagram, you can almost always find them on my Likeittoknowit page! You can either click this link or just search Almost It Girl on the app. 

I'd love to see your broke girl basics, so feel free to comment them below!

Until Next Time,
Autumn
