As much as we hate to admit it, we’re all influenced by what we see on Instagram. Whether it’s the chic vacation spot someone just visited that’s now on your list, a new neighborhood restaurant your friend just posted that is now on your radar, or the dreamy handbag your favorite fashion person just got, we’re all subconsciously influenced a bit by what’s being surfaced to us every day. Blame the algorithm, but the power of Instagram is undeniable.
I myself am not immune to its powers. I find myself saving outfits I want to re-create constantly, and I’ll admit that occasionally I even save posts featuring items I want to come back to and purchase later. Thankfully for my bank account, the items I’ve been saving for the latter category recently have actually been relatively affordable. From the $20 Zara bodysuit Rosie Huntington-Whiteley can’t stop photographing to the coolest utility dress ever created, I’m here to highlight the under-$150 pieces I’ve been influenced to buy. Below you’ll find the item to shop, plus the post that influenced me, so be warned that they may have the same effect on you.
