Hi there! My name is Alice and I am a Baton Rouge style and personal finance blogger. I blog about staying chic on the cheap, bargain hunting, and reworking your wardrobe to create great outfits. I post real outfits that I wear and that I can afford. No Hermes bags here (though they are gorgeous, sigh).
I started in the blogging world two years ago with my personal finance blog Earning My Two Cents (Check it out!). I love personal finance and wanted to share what I was learning. But as I started reading blogs, I found that I also started veering off into the world of fashion and style blogging. My blog feed started to become filled with pictures of gorgeous outfits that I usually can’t afford but I felt rich with style inspiration. Add in a growing addiction to Pinterest and I couldn’t get enough. But I sure can’t afford most of those clothes I so lovingly covet. So I started thinking…can I even wear that to work? How can I translate that outfit into a real world outfit that fits my budget and my closet?
What I Really Wear is just that. It’s what I am wearing every day and trying to make sure I look chic (if not at least presentable) without a lot in the bank. It’s about real people and real style on a real budget. I hope you can find inspiration for your own closet and tips to find great deals! Let’s get dressed!
