5 Wardrobe Staples Under $25!

5 Wardrobe Staples Under $25 (And How To Wear Them!)

Hey Buttercups! I’ve been working really hard on this post for you guys! I always get asked about my style, where I buy things and how I wear them. I think there’s a huge misconception that all of my clothes are designer, LOL. Nah fam. 90% of my wardrobe is Forever 21! But recently with the business of life (and my budget!) I find myself not being able to shop in the mall as much, so I get a lot of shopping online.

I’ve found a couple new favorite stores that are perfect for purchasing basics and trendy wear! I put together some looks for you with five things that cost under $25 each. An embroidered denim jacket, a basic wrap denim skirt, boyfriend shorts, a slouchy sweater and retro sunnies are my must haves as we transition from hot summer to cool fall. I know school is about to start too! So if you’re in school consider this a “Back To School Outfits” post also! Just swap the heels for some all white sneakers and you’ll be fly in the hallways. I hope you guys love these looks!

       I love this rose embroidered denim jacket from www.shein.com! It’s sweet with denim on denim, midi skirts or over a dress! Embroidery is definitely one of my favorite trends of 2017 and it’s in my closet to stay! And the best part is that it’s only $23! CLICK HERE to buy this denim jacket! 

 I’m obsessed with these shorts, you guys. They’re only $14.99 from www.romwe.com CLICK HERE to buy these shorts!

Romwe Fashion T-shirts

I think that even in the summer, everyone needs a comfy sweater to lounge around in… My current favorite is this gray one with a cute pocket from www.romwe.com! It’s so soft and drapes like a dream. CLICK HERE to buy this sweater for $16.99!

Next is this PERFECT wrap denim skirt! It’s one piece that you wrap around and buckle manually, so it really is flattering because you can create the size perfect for you. I love it in the summer with a lacy tank top and I can’t wait to wear it in the fall with thigh high boots! CLICK HERE to buy this skirt for $16.00 from www.shein.com!


Lastly, I absolutely love these square, super 90’s sunglasses! I scored them for only $5.90 from www.zaful.com! CLICK HERE to buy these sunnies!

I hope you guys absolutely love these looks as much as I do!

Love, Mariah

Hi Mariah! I’m Anna-Alicia and I LOVE this post! All of the outfits are classy and cute!

I just have to know…where did you get the tan blazer? I love it!

Also, on another note, your blog post on Grace and what grace means really changed my perspective on grace.

God Bless girl!

Hey Mariah
You have such a beautiful vlog. I also admire your love for God. I’m a Christian too.

I just wanted to leave you with a suggestion. Please do some research on the impact of fast fashion on the environment. Thanks in advance for taking the time to do so.
