Fall has finally hit Northern California, and we're all enjoying the crisp, cool weather -- and the return to fall fashion! Warm colors, layers, snuggly sweaters and wraps, boots, caps.... there are so many ways to look great for the season! There's no better time to build a great fall wardrobe, and there's no better place to do it than at Ross Dress for Less. You can really get some amazing bargains at Ross, if you're willing to look.
Ross sent me a $25 gift card and challenged me to create a fall look with it. Now that's a mission I can easily look forward to! Every visit to Ross is like going on a treasure hunt -- it even says so in their stores!
I had to start with a sweater, of course. After just 5 minutes, I was able to come up with this beauty. Retail price was over $30, but here at Ross it cost just $14.99. I fell in love with it, but for the purposes of the $25 challenge, that left me with just $10 for the rest of my outfit.
$10 for a top and a bottom? Is that even possible? It is if you shop at Ross! This basic black tank top was on the clearance rack for $3.99...
... and these basic leggings were just $5.99. I was able to put together a great fall outfit for $25!
If I had just one more dollar in my budget, I could have swapped the leggings for this cheetah-print skirt ($6.99) and ended up with an outfit with just a bit more pizzazz. So of course, I ended up getting both! I justified it by telling myself that layering is super important in the fall :)
Of course, if you've already gotten your fall wardrobe, check out Ross for their awesome (and awesomely priced) Halloween decor items, housewares, kids' toys, shoes and accessories.
