Mary Seng from Happily Grey is one of my absolute favorite personal style bloggers at the moment. I love scrolling through her Instagram feed; she has such a great taste in clothes and I adore her sense of style which is modern yet feminine and elegant yet also bold and fearless. To me it feels like Mary isn’t afraid of playing with fashion and taking risks while at the same time still maintaining her unique style and genuineness. One of her recent looks particularly caught my attention; Mary wore a white oversized chunky knit sweater with a beautiful forest green wool skirt which she then paired with a timeless black quilted Chanel bag. I loved this outfit so much that I just had to recreate it on a more accessible level with budget-friendly options. Let me know what you think of my white and green blogger winter look for less.

Summer may be officially over, but it’s never too late for a good pair of sunglasses, right? Case in point: these geometric, wire-framed “Love Punch” shades. When I first saw celebrities and style bloggers flaunting these shades, I assumed they were by a big household name like Dior or Prada, but I then learned that these are actually by a South Korean eyewear brand named Gentle Monster which until then hasn’t been on my radar yet. I looked at the rest of their collection and these guys certainly know their stuff when it comes to designing beautiful sunglasses, so splurging on these razor-thin $345 shades might be a substantial but smart investment. However, if you can’t justify this kind of price tag, keep on reading to find a couple of budget-friendly alternatives that won’t break the bank.

SojoS Cat Eye Mirrored Sunglasses

So these sunglasses by SojoS are an absolute dead ringer for the “Love Punch” shades by Gentle Monster except these will cost you $12.99 instead of $345. They come in a variety of different lense and frame colors, so feel free to opt for more than one pair at that price. Don’t expect them to last a lifetime, but if you just want to wear them for a season or two, these are a good alternative.

Aldo “Qilalla” Sunglasses

Another great and possibly more durable Gentle Monster “Love Punch” dupe would have to be these sunglasses by Aldo. They cost slightly more ($16!), but also look sturdier and less fragile than the SojoS sunnies, so if you’re a clumsy person like me and happen to accidentally sit on your sunglasses from time to time, these Aldo shades might be the smarter choice for you.
