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.

Time for some Chloé goodness again. The French fashion house really is on a roll with their newest line of “It” bags everyone is lusting after. We’ve already covered the “Drew” and “Faye” and now it’s time to talk about the “Hudson” which is actually a whole set of different Chloé bags coming in different shapes and sizes, all of them exuding that iconic Chloé boho-vibe with their tassels and fringes. And yes, sure, this is undeniably a gorgeous bag, but can you imagine spending more than $2.000 for this sweet little mini bag?

Lush Leather Saddle Tassel Crossbody Bag

Update (05/11/2016): Stumbled upon the first genuine leather Chloé Hudson dupe today! By Lush and available in either black or brown for $139.99.

Sole Society “Exie” Mini Fringe Shoulder Bag

Luckily, I stumbled upon this cute Chloé alternative by Sole Society which will give you the coveted Chloé boho look for a whole lot less. Sole Society’s version is a little larger than the real deal Chloé, but I actually prefer that because I can’t see my wallet, phone, keys and lipstick fitting comfortably in the Hudson mini bag above. “Exie” is available in cognac brown or black faux leather (with genuine suede tassels) for $59.95.

BagInc “Renee” Faux Leather Fringe Bag

Deal: Use promo code “SPRINGBAG” to get 15% off your entire order!

BagInc has also a good looking, spot-on Chloé Hudson faux leather dupe available in various beautiful colors for the budget-friendly price of $69. You can even save some more (15%!) by using the promo code above. FYI: A few weeks ago I received an email from a reader who was having issues with her BagInc order (long order processing and unsatisfactory customer service), so please proceed with caution, prepare yourself for a possibly longer shipping process (products are being shipped from Hong Kong) and if nothing helps, there’s always the possibility to file a dispute with PayPal or your credit card company. I own a couple of (genuine leather) BagInc bags and was always very pleased with both the shipping duration as well as the product quality, but that’s been quite a while ago now, so I can’t fully vouch for the company at this point and thus wanted you to be aware of this.

Chanel espadrilles, round 3. This time we’re showing you the leather version (see the mesh and canvas version here). The top color combination is my personal favorite! Perfect shoes for summer, don’t you agree? I’ve said it before: despite the hype surrounding these shoes I still really like these cute espadrilles, but there’s no way I would spend so much money on a pair of espadrilles even though I can imagine that the leather version is the most durable of all the three variations. But still, $550? Um, no, thank you.

Anyone remember these Zara flats? For a couple of weeks, these were the no. 1 shoes on Instagram and it seemed like everyone and their mom owned a pair. If they look somehow familiar to you, you’re absolutely right as they are a beautiful hybrid of Isabel Marant’s studded Leo flats and Aquazzura’s Christy lace-up flats (see another lovely Isabel Marant and Aquazzura hybrid example here). I’m not sure how much they retailed for, but I guess probably somewhere around $80. Now that isn’t expensive for a pair of chic flats and probably also the reason why these babies were sold out in no time at Zara. I tried my best to score them, but no such luck! Boohoo!

And we’re back to Chanel. Back to the now uber-famous and highly popular Chanel espadrilles, to be exact. We have already written about the black mesh pair and this time we’re showing you the just as lovely canvas version. And while I do think that they are really beautiful and would make a great pair of summer shoes, there’s absolutely no way I’d pay more than $500 for a pair of espadrilles! Not gonna happen, not even if they’re Chanel.
