The Look for Less: Olivia Palermo

I often find myself scouring the Internet or old magazines for fashion inspiration that helps me with everything from crafting blog posts to updating my wardrobe as the seasons change to even decorating my new home. One person who always shows up in my stack of magazine clippings or who’s pics get bookmarked in my browser is reality TV personality-turned-fashion maven Olivia Palermo.

She always seems to get it right. From playing with proportions to mixing prints to layering textures, Palermo takes fashion risks without it looking too gimmicky or trendy.

During one of my regular fashion-spiration binges online, I came across the pic to the right of her on InStyle.com. She showed up to Valentino’s show during Paris Couture Fashion Week wearing a crisp, white button down blouse and a black and orange color-blocked skirt by Valentino, which she paired with some black-and-white printed ankle-strap  sandals and fringed clutch in a gorgeous Kelly green hue.

Check out this budget-friendly redux of Olivia’s high fashion look:
