If you’re like me, you have accessories for dressy occasions and accessories for casual looks. But what if you could get some fab accessories for both occasions and what if they were designer and affordable? No “what if’s” here because I checked off all three after I found my versatile spring accessories at The Outlets at Orange!
Orange County has some great outdoor malls and The Outlets at Orange is no exception because not only do they have every store you can think of, but EVERYTHING IS AFFORDABLE! You can find the best designer items, but not pay designer prices. The Outlets challenged me to put together two different looks with three of the same accessories for $250! Challenge accepted! I was able to find two full outfits from H&M, a handbag from the Bloomingdales Outlet, a pair of sandals from Steve Madden and statement earrings from Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th for less than $250 and everything can be mixed and matched making the money and my purchases go even further!
Weekend Casual Look
I knew I wanted to do one casual look and one dressy look for spring, but I also wanted the pieces to be staples I could wear for more than one season and that I could mix and match. I chose some comfortable print high-waisted pants and a basic white tank. It’s a perfect look for any weekend excursion and my handbag that can be worn two different ways, topped off my casual outfit with the cute and practical crossbody style. My sandals have the perfect size heel keeping the look casual, but also elongating the legs. I topped it off with my gorgeous statement earrings, which are a mix of brown and black, that tied the small brown and black print in. This would also be a perfect travel look paired with a denim jacket for those cooler climates.
Dressy Spring Look
Who has a ton of birthdays, bridal and baby showers this spring? This girl does and I was on the hunt for a look that I could wear to all three but could also go with my accessories from above. Luckily H&M came through again and I was able to find an affordable leopard pleated skirt, you can’t go wrong with leopard ladies for any season and a basic black dressy tank that went perfectly with all my accessory choices! The statement earrings again pulled the brown from the leopard print, I already talked about the sandals having the perfect heel for a casual or dressy look and I opted to hold the bamboo handle of my bag instead of using it as a crossbody to give it more of a dressy feel. This look will definitely be on repeat!
Mix and Match
While I didn’t shoot the Mix and Match options, the white tank can easily be paired with the leopard skirt for a more casual look and the black tank can be paired with the printed pants for a dressier look and of course using all the same accessories for two more spring looks!
See how easy that was and I got everything from one place! Check out The Outlets at Orange to see what outfits you can put together for spring! Click HERE to see a list of store directories!
