8 Under $20: Going Gray

It’s almost that time of year again. Time to pack up those boxes and head back to campus to endure the infamous walk of shame walk to class, cafeteria food, cute boys in uniform, and a little math problem I like to call “peppermint schnapps + chocolate milk = excellent football game material.”  Cheers to that.

If you’re as excited as I am, it’s time to get a jump start and fill up your dresser drawers with some Fall-ish suga – aka the perfect fall wardrobe.  Lucky for me, this season (because I’m obsessed with it) gray is the new neutral.  Bye bye lint rolling the shiz out of all of my black clothes, right!?!  Aren’t you ecstatic?! Gray is such a soft, easy color and goes with absolutely everything under the sun.  So instead of running for cover in an end-of-summer sale rack of black, high tail it on over to the grays.

You won’t re-gray it. Sorry, couldn’t resist.

I’m always a fan of the sheer, v-neck tee.  It’s comfortable, it’s cool and would look beyond adorbz with a fedora and a long necklace. Oh and it’s only $4.99 and you could wear it to bed.  The beauty of the tee.

This skirt is perfect for a job interview.  The ruched sides make it unique and slightly flirty (but still profesh), and I love the steal gray color and subtly sexy back zipper.  Pair this sucker with a sharp pair of patent leather pumps and, whew, is it getting hot in here?


These flirty, floral denim (cheap – $15.80) shorty shorts are too cute.  The frayed hem is Daisy Duke style and totally sexy.  These babies would look cute with a lose fitting tee and flats.  I’m lusting.

Find of the year.  This cap sleeve dress would look perfect for business AND the club (those are my favorite matches, of course). I totally love its simple yet saucy attitude and versatile style.  Also, I would like to note that it would look smashing on any shape.

First of all, I think it’s funny that to find jeggings these days you must look under the ‘Pants’ tab not the ‘Leggings’ tab of your favorite shopping sites. Just a little slice of info for this lovely Tuesday. Anyway, these are a must-have.  Jeggings are truly brilliant.

We may not be going full-out-gray style right here, but this shirt looks comfy and stylish all in one piece of cotton.  See those jeggings above? This would make a fab outfit, and for cheap! Pssst. This shirt is only $5.99.

This tweed gray topper is great for upcoming fall.  I know you’re probably not ready for that quite yet, but if anything can get you geeked for fall it’s this kind of cuteness.  It would look adorable with any other texture (to add dimension to your wardrobe) and would work great for a windy day of a I-Haven’t-Showered-marathon.  It’s OK – it happens to the best of us.

I know this seems super simplistic, but I’ve been dying to find a place that has this comfortable top for cheap.  Luckily, we’ve found one for a measly $7.80. I’m willing to risk buying Jamba Juice for one day to pop for this baby.  Paired with skinny jeans, big sunglasses and lots of fun jewelry, this makes for a perfect shopping going to class outfit.
