Spring Break Style

Spring Break Essentials

I am going to Bora Bora in two weeks – and I have spent tons of time trying to find affordable spring break pieces that won’t completely break the bank. I, of course, am drawn to all things expensive..so this was tough. Some of these pieces are much more affordable than others – but I figured I’d share some of my favorites that I’ve found while shopping for Bora Bora!

1 – Pompom Straw Clutch 

2 – Red Dress Boutique Two Piece Set 

3 – Target Espadrille Wedges 

4 – Tropical Leaf One Piece 

5 – Layered Disc Charm Necklace

6 – Striped Cami High Waisted Bikini 

7 – BaubleBar Tassel Earrings  

8 – Pink Lily Boutique Romper

Treat yourself for Valentine’s Day

Valentines Day .png

Valentine’s Day is a holiday that really can be different for everyone – single or taken, some love to go all out and for some, it is just another day. So instead of doing a gift guide for him and her, I decided to put together a few things that I love/have had my eye on in case you plan on treating yourself this Valentine’s Day – honestly you probably deserve it 🙂 And it’s always good to treat ourselves every once and a while (I do WAY too often.)

1- Quay x Desi Perkins High Key Sunglasses: My friend Mikaela included these in the bridesmaid boxes she gave us and I am OBSESSED. I wear them more than my Ray Bans now!

2 – Viktor&Rolf Flowerbomb Perfume: When my Aunt & I were out to dinner, our waitress had on this perfume that smelled so good – so we asked what she was wearing and it was this. Definitely my new favorite scent.

3 – Pink & Blush Elizabeth Stone Ring: I’ve had my eye on a few stackable stone rings for a while now and this one is one of them – and it’s currently on sale for $47!

4 – Chiffon Floral Wrap: I have wanted a floral silky robe for a while and this one caught my eye.

5 – Slip Silk Pillowcase: This was one of my Christmas presents from Davis – I had seen a lot of bloggers/youtubers recommend this because it is so good for your skin and your hair. They are definitely on the pricier side but they are so soft and feel so good on your skin – it’s supposed to be good for anti-aging too?!

6 – T3 1.25 Inch Curling Iron: I have the T3 Trio which has the interchangeable wands, if I’m being honest I do not know how to correctly use ones with a clamp. But I want to learn because I love how the curls come out! A lot of people rave about this one, and it is more affordable than the other T3 options. If you’re looking for a new curling iron I highly recommend this brand!

I hope this post inspires you to treat yourself!

My favorite purchases of 2018

Favorite Purchases of 2018.png

Happy New Year! I can’t believe the holidays are already over. Putting this post together was difficult – being the shopaholic that I am, I had a ton of favorites but I decided to narrow it down to some of the things I have purchased in the past year that really stood out..

  1. Zella Live-In High Waist Leggings – I didn’t think I would like any other leggings more than my lulu lemon ones, but I literally LIVE in these leggings. Not only are they extremely flattering but are so comfortable and great quality.
  2. Large Initial Necklace / Also similar here – I saw the Celine necklace on Emily Gemma and so I searched for a dupe and found one on Amazon, shortly after, Love Always came out with a dupe. I wear mine all of the time!!
  3. Anthropologie Moto Jacket – I probably wear this way too much..but I’m not even mad about it, it was definitely worth the splurge!
  4. Sol De Janeiro Body Mist – I came across this brand because of Tati Westbrook and now I understand why she raves about this brand…This stuff smells SO good. I also got the body cream and I am officially hooked.
  5. Leith Ruched Body-Con Dress – I had seen this dress on tons of people and I was so excited to finally buy it. It really is the most flattering dress I own – I also got the long sleeve version too!
  6. Halo Beauty – I never thought these vitamins would do as much as they have – but I have seen such a difference in my hair and nails. Worth every penny!
  7. Kristen Ess Shampoo & Conditioner – I found this at Target when I was looking for a new shampoo and conditioner. This stuff smells AMAZING but is also sulfate free so it doesn’t strip your hair.
  8. Gucci Belt Dupe – I purchased this because Natalie Kennedy shared it on Instagram and I was amazed and how great of a dupe this was?! It looks so similar and it’s only $19!
  9. Lastly..this Janet Gwen Gold & Marble Laptop Case. I have seen a lot of bloggers with this case and no wonder so many people love it – it is so classy looking and great quality. Her designs are stunning.

The perfect $40 jacket for fall days + nights out

IMG_9571IMG_9573IMG_9574IMG_9572IMG_9579IMG_9576IMG_9575IMG_9580IMG_9578Jacket / Jeans (On sale!!) / Cami / Heels (Similar) / Necklace

I am LOVING Target’s new fall selection (but really when am I not loving anything from Target)…They really are killing it right now. They are coming out with more and more designer dupes that are so affordable.

I love this jacket because it works during the day and you can also wear it out at night. It’s super easy to dress up or down, and it looks designer but its only $40! It comes in a few other colors too 🙂 Also, my jeans are currently on sale for $21.99 and originally are $88! They are by far the comfiest jeans I own.

Transitioning my favorite summer staples into fall

Green1Green3Green4Green5Green6Green7Green8Blouse / Jeans / Wedges / Watch / Necklace

It is finally starting to cool down and feel like fall – I am so happy I get to transition into wearing my fall outfits again!! I personally love wearing white jeans in the fall and up until winter – especially in this weird transition period where it hasn’t completely cooled down yet and some days are warmer than others. It is so easy to take some of your favorite summer pieces and transition them into fall outfits just by pairing them with the right fall colors. This top is from Target and is only $22 and also comes in a rust orange color! And these wedges..are just another Target must have. They aren’t too high and are designer dupes!

express

Express is the perfect place to buy your “going out” closet staples. The entire site is currently 40% off and womens jeans are 50% off! 

One Shoulder Tie Tank – Only $15!!

Sequin Mini Skirt – $41. I wore this last weekend to celebrate my 22nd birthday and I loved it. Just the right amount of extra 😉 

Strapless Sweetheart Romper – $41. I love this because it’s simple – but you can do a lot with it! PicMonkey Image-6

It was not until recently that I started shopping at Abercrombie again, they have so many cute fall items right now and their sales are great! 

Snap-Up Fleece – I am obsessed. Comes in many different colors! 

Cozy Swing Dress – This also comes in different colors and I think it’s perfect for fall! 

Lace Trim Cami – These are SUPER in right now. The reason I like mine so much is because you can wear it under a lot of different cardigans and blazers, or by itself!

Goodnight Macaroon is the perfect place to get sweaters and cardigans. They have so many unique styles that you might not see a lot of other places. It has been one of my favorites for a while now. 

“Silvia” Eyelet Halter Neck Lightweight Sweater / “Pansy” Two Tone High Low V-Neck Sweater / “Acadia” Fuzzy Fleece Sweater 


 

With fall approaching – what kind of blog posts do you want to see?! What are you guys looking to add to your closet right now?! Let me know in the comments or DM me 🙂

Lace-up Tank / High Waisted Shorts / Sandals

I can’t believe that I have been living in Illinois for almost 5 years now and I hadn’t gone to the Chicago Botanic Gardens until now..They are seriously so beautiful. These photos do not even do it justice.  There is also a super cute café and gift shop!

My favorite tank from the Nordstrom sale is restocked in limited sizes and in some colors so grab it while you can! Also, my shorts are on clearance at Target right now for $11! My slides are also from Target and I have literally been living in them. This was such an easy outfit to throw on. I want this tank in other colors!
