Blogger On A Budget – Part I

Being a blogger on a budget can be hard. I mean…..Free People isn’t exactly knocking down my door and sending me free stuff quite yet, so until then every piece of clothing you see on Sensible Chaos is purchased by yours truly. I can get into some real trouble with this because I justify buying anything by saying, “this would be perfect for my blog!” Alex isn’t a fan of this shopping justification, and I’m not a fan of his disapproving look every time the doorbell rings and it’s Dave the UPS guy.

So from this, a new segment of Sensible Chaos is born! Welcome to, “Blogging On A Budget,” where I take items from one of my three closets (yes three, like I said, it’s a problem) and create fun, trendy, outfits without spending…too much. Of course, you will see a few new pieces here and there, but for the most part each item will come straight from my closet.  I will also be linking similar items so that you can still shop the look even if it’s not available.

Let’s dive into the first outfit straight from my closet…ssss…closets!! I mean closets..

I snagged these overalls from one of my favorite boutiques, Frankie & Jules in Kansas City. I am a sucker for a good pair of overalls. I have been rockin’ them since ’87 so naturally they would be a part of the fist ensemble featured.  I have linked a similar pair of overalls from H&M. Same goes for the booties, they were a sale find from my favorite local shop Mint 217 last year. I found similar boots from Kohl’s and the bodysuit is still available at the Buckle.
