Serena Vanderwoodson Style

I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again… I have a girl crush on Blake lively.

I started watching gossip girl in high school, and loved her ever since. I’m obsessed with her and her characters style!

After re-watching the entire series on Netflix, I wanted to try and find a few of the items she was wearing, I thought “now that I’m an adult with a job and stuff, I can totally afford to dress like serena Van Der Woodson”

I cant totally not afford to dress like Serena Van Der Woodson…

That being said, I’ve decided to kick off a mini fashion series here on my blog, and show you some peices I’ve found that are on a much smaller budget.

I absolutely love serena’s style, it’s a mixture of chic, vintage and so much personal style. As I watched this show, I was wearing a school uniform, and the way they could dress up their school uniforms produced so much outfit envy from me. Now that I’m not in a uniform, I like to think my style has a few similarities with my girl Blake.

Her version: 

Necklace:  Stephen Dweck hand-woven bib necklace $1,195

Coat:Twenty8Twelve Truman coat $682

Dress: Alice+Olivia keyhole shoulder pad dress $264

Bag: Kotur’s Wallace gold leaf haircalf handbag $385

Tights:Hue ZigZag openwork tights $12

Shoes: Manolo Blahnik grey suede Reata peep-toe mary-jane pumps $362

Total: $2900

almost three thousand dollars on an outfit? It’s cool, it’s not like you’re wearing the price of a used car or anything. Do your thing!

My Version:

Necklace: Forever 21 $14.50

Coat: Burlington $20

Dress:LuLu’s $32

Bag: T.J. Msxx $40

Tights: Target $10

Shoes: DSW $40

Total: $156.50

Both outfits are so cute and wearable. The budget friendly version may not be quite as glamorous, but it’s still super cute, and you won’t have to give up eating for the rest of the year to be able to afford it.

I hope this helps those of you who are in love with fashion but also don’t have thousands of dollars to throw down on an outfit.

Let me know what you think about adding some fashion into my blog, and what you think of this outfit.

I’d love to hear your opinions.
