Blair from Atlantic-Pacific is hands down one of my absolute favorite personal style bloggers and I think she has such an impeccable sense of style. Whenever I visit her blog, I always find an abundance of outfit inspiration and rarely see a look that I do not love. While browsing for some new outfit ideas yesterday, I happened to discover this beautiful summer outfit where Blair wore a striped off-the-shoulder top with white short overalls by Madewell, tan Chloé espadrille wedges, a cute straw boater and cool Ray-Ban Clubmaster shades. I was so in love with Blair’s French Chic summer ensemble that I decided to recreate her look on a more budget-friendly level. What do you think of my alternative picks? Close enough? Let me know.

Budget Look – Vacay Mode

by Irina on April 29, 2016

It’s almost May which means it’s time to start thinking summer wardrobe. The weather here has been so depressing lately that I needed some sort of fashionable pick-me-up to lighten my mood, so I started dreaming about a summer vacation in Greece or Italy and all the stylish summer outfits I could wear there. And just like that a new budget look was born! This outfit has a strong focus on fringes and ruffles, a cute and casual summer look. Do you approve?

Scarves are a great way to accessorize, but not for $395. As much as I adore this Burberry Giant Check Wool Silk Gauze Scarf, it is way beyond my price range. It seems to be a bit light for winter in my area, but perfect for transitional weather. No need to worry about the price because the scarved we found below are practically identical and very affordable as well.

Humble Chic Heritage Scarf

Update (04/19/2016): Spotted these lovely Burberry scarf dupes at Humble Chic today. Love these! Another great alternative would be the just as fab Lightweight London Plaid Scarfpjx which costs around $15, also by Humble Chic and available in various colors.

Melrose Glam “Classic Nova” Scarf

Update (10/15/2012): Good news! BagInc has finally restocked the Melrose Glam “Classic Nova” Scarves which are now also available in other lovely colors such as red (my personal favorite!). Don’t forget to use our exclusive promo code “INTHEIRCLOSET” to get 10% OFF your entire order!

To be honest, I actually like these scarves more than the Burberry one. I think that the darker pigmentation of the Melrose Glam “Classic Nova” Scarf looks more expensive, but the best part is that it’s only $12. This would make a lovely accessory for really any outfit, and also a great gift for someone who loves the classic Burberry style.

Let me tell you: if you have a chance to get your hands on a pair of Thierry Lasry sunglasses at a reasonable price, do NOT miss it! I bought a pair very similar to the ones shown below this Spring and they’ve quickly become my absolute favorite to wear during the summer. The quality is superb (very sturdy material, made in France) and they have a very classic, timeless design that will never go out of style. Just take a look at how cool they are on style blogger Chiara Ferragni. So fierce, right? However, retail prices for Thierry Lasry sunglasses are ridiculously high, so I would recommend buying this brand during a sale (I was super lucky and got mine for 50% off!).

Mango Cat-Eye Sunglasses

If you’ve fallen in love with the cat-eye sunnies above, but can’t wait for sale season to come, here’s a great alternative I discovered while browsing through Mango. The design is almost identical, but these stylish cateye sunglasses here can be purchased for less than 10% of the real deal. Score!

In the last few years, I always felt attracted to these oversized, men’s like Michael Kors-type of watches, but lately I’ve been more and more finding myself flirting with the idea to purchase one of these tiny, feminine, classic women’s watches such as the “Tank Anglaise” by Cartier. It’s such a timeless design and I have no doubt I could still wear it in either 5 or 50 years from now on and still look great. But $33.900? We don’t even need to begin the discussion of possibly purchasing or saving up for it because it’s way, way out of my price league…or universe even.

Update (03/27/2016): Spotted these lovely watches by Saks Fifth Avenue today which instantly reminded of the Cartier Tank Anglaise Watches above. These are currently 50% off for $87.49. Steal deal alert!

Juicy Couture “Darby” Watch

However, a few days ago I happened to stumble upon this set of watches by Juicy Couture and the design instantly reminded me of Cartier’s Tank Anglaise timepiece. There are a couple differences, but considering the huge price difference (the JC version cost either $195 (silver) or $250 (gold) compared to the $33.000 for the Cartier watch) I don’t think it’s much of a big deal.
