Lindsey Fillman: Insta-Ready Style On A Real Girl Budget

Lindsey Fillman's outfit posts seem destined for Instagram success - they have a girly, bohemian charm, and each photo looks like it could be taken right from a fashion magazine. And while Lindsey definitely knows how to rock a trend, her style is totally her own. She wears lots of bold prints, and combines bohemian charm with touches of western, Americana style. She started her blog, The Fashionably Broke Teacher, as a creative outlet where she could document her style. She was working as a 4th grade teacher in her hometown of Philadelphia, and wanted to find ways to look fashionable on a teacher's budget.

Although Lindsey always looks on trend, her style and beauty favorites are generally very affordable and accessible for the average woman. Although she's based in Philadelphia, she loves the city of Nashville and frequently travels there. She also loves country music, and lets this western charm influence her style. She travels frequently and loves to try new restaurants, so you will often find her travel guides and recommendations on her site. Here are some of our favorite outfits of Lindsey's.

One of Lindsey's signature looks is mixing graphic t-shirts with printed skirts. Here, she ties up a graphic T-shirt so that it emphasizes her waist, and then wears a polka dot midi skirt with ruffled detailing on the bottom. Low top sneakers make the look appropriate for daytime, but you could easily switch them out for wedges at night. Lindsey wears this look to work as a teacher, but it would look just as awesome at a music festival or even for brunch. 

This adorable outfit has a breezy charm that's perfect for weekends by the beach. Lindsey's green trousers are very on-trend, with cropped and flared legs and a high waist. Her floral tie-waist top is bohemian and flattering. Lindsey always finds the cutest sandal brands, and these nude sandals dress the look up a bit, while the straw hat makes the look totally beach appropriate. The brown fanny pack is not only an elevated take on a 90s essential, but also allows you to enjoy the beach hands-free. 

This outfit is perfect for any girl that loves their cowboy boots, but doesn't want to go totally over the top. These white boots have some laser cutouts and a western flair, but don't totally overpower Lindsey's charming printed dress. The wrap dress silhouette is comfy and would be flattering on many different body types, plus it's totally comfortable for summer. 

Be sure to follow Lindsey on her blog and Instagram for more bohemian-western charm.
