Ballin’ on a Budget — Affordable Dupes

I stalk clothes.

Weird I know. I will literally know the brand and price of an item, find it in 18 different places and then know how to get the cheapest price. In my spare time, I like to research brands and trends. It’s fun to see what’s new for the upcoming season and then search for more budget-friendly versions. That’s where these affordable dupes come in. After coveting so many designer items, I’ve found look-alikes that won’t break the bank! Yee-haw!

These are some of my Spring picks already in my closet or on my wishlist. You know I love neutrals, so my dream Spring palette is made up of gray, tan, navy, and black. Liking softer hues doesn’t mean I don’t love a good print though– bold stripes and gingham are my top picks. And of course, I always love some good denim.
