This weekend I was doing some shopping in preparation for Alt Summit. As a young business owner you don’t always have…say “free” cash lying around to pour in to the so-called perfect outfit for every occasion so this year I have decided to stay on a better budget when it comes to fashion. This year we are doing a lot to save and put away money so we can make some big dreams come true for us personally. Thought I have to be honest and say I am still a girl who loves to shop…so I have to be able to buy something once and a while, but what if it was cheap and under budget? Yeah I think we can do that.

So to prove you can I wrangled up some really cute things that are all under $50 and some even under $25 or $10. Most of this could come together with a cute pair of tights and classic coat to make for a great outfit for any event…all way under what you may pay for the amazing Tracy Reese and Kate Spade dress you have been eyeing. Who says you cannot be a stylin’ lady on a budget, and who says anyone has to know?

Hello! I’m Megan Gilger,

A strong believer that nature and the seasons are our greatest teachers. We live on a hill in Leelanau County, Michigan just a stone’s throw from Lake Michigan. This land we are responsible for is where we are focused on building a life around the seasons and intention. We spend our days here building a regenerative model of living and focusing our garden on native plants and intensive polyculture planting styles. My focus is less on self-sufficiency and more on community-sufficiency through how we grow and connect through the seasons.
