Spring Favorites

Click directly on the image to shop!

Happy Friday!! I know this post is a little different than what I normally share with the images, but I thought it might be easier for you to shop! Let me know if you have any preferences on this type of post, because I love rounding up some of my current faves each week! This week has been crazy! I am so looking forward to a relaxing weekend at home. Do you have any fun plans? Baseball season gets started up today with the Nats vs. the Red Sox here in DC, and it officially kicks off next week. Not that I'm a huge baseball fan or anything! I'm just there for the hot dogs and beer, ya feel me?! However, it's always such an exciting time, because it means Spring really is in the air! The cherry blossoms have been in bloom this past week, and it's truly been a beautiful sight! Wishing you a fabulous weekend and happy shopping! XO

Little Black Jumpsuit

Clutch: Saint Laurent | Belt: Gucci

Little black dress, little black romper, little black jumpsuit... you've heard them all. But, really if you don't have a little black jumpsuit, you need to invest in one (or just snag this one for under $30)! You will be surprised how much you reach for it! Rehearsal dinner, date night, office party... the list goes on! I picked up my first little black jumpsuit a few years ago, and I literally have worn it to death! When I saw this one for under $30 with the updated silhouette, I knew I would regret it if I didn't snag it! I decided to belt it at the waist to give it some definite shape. However, you could totally get away without the belt and just add some statement earrings. I hope you're having a great week! As always, thanks for stopping by! XO

Edgy Ruffles

Top: SheIn c/o | Bag: Chloé
Denim: Old, highly recommend these though! (I have them in white!)
Heels: Christian Siriano, sold out but love these!
Sunglasses: Similar here | Lips: "Mac Red"

A little feminine, a little edgy, and only $17... what's not to love with this top!? I adore everything about it! It would be so cute paired with this white denim mini, too, if you wanted to sweeten it up a little! If you are not familiar with SheIn, it is a great site with super affordable and trendy pieces. When it comes to certain trends, I sometimes don't like to splurge as much, as I'm not sure if I'll still love it the next season. And, there's always the fear of paying a ton for a statement piece then only being able to wear it twice, because well it's just that loud and memorable! My one tip with browsing this site is to pay close attention to the sizing, but overall I was super pleased with this top and the quality! It does run a little large, but I like the oversized fit. If you are wanting a fit that is not as loose, I would recommend sizing down. Also, in regards to shipping I would say it's worth it to pay the extra $1.90 for expedited shipping on your order, so that it's processed a little faster than normal. I have linked a few more items I am loving from the site as well below! Hope you have a great start to your week... we are almost to April! Can you believe it?! XO

Spring Casual: Under $100

Spring Casual: Under $100
Top: J. Crew | Earrings: Shashi
Sunglasses: BP. Nordstrom | Lips: Stila in "Angelo"
Sandals: Dolce Vita (on sale!!)
Bag: BP. Nordstrom | Denim Mini: Topshop

Happy Friday!! This week has FLOWN! Anyone else feel the same?! Today, I wanted to share a few things I've been eyeing (including a few that are on sale!) and all currently under $100! These Dolce Vita sandals are a favorite of mine this season, and (insert praise hands emoji!) they are on sale right now! I don't think you can go wrong with either the tan or the black. They are sure to become a staple in your Spring and Summer wardrobes. Also, how cute is this one shoulder eyelet top?! It's 30% off with the code "HAPPYSPRING" right now, and I especially love it in black as well. Wishing you a fabulous weekend! It is supposed to be sunny and in the 70's tomorrow here in DC! HALLELUJAH!!!! Happy weekend and happy shopping! XO

Statement Making Ruffles + Designer Dupes

Top: H&M (almost sold out in pink but available in this gorgeous light blue!)
Skirt: Forever 21, sold out but similar here
Sandals: Payless (cannot get over these!!)
Clutch: Exact one available here

I just don't know if there's ever been an outfit that's more me... a little pink, a little leopard, some frilly details, and these AMAZING caged sandals! I have had my eye on this pair from Schutz since last season, but I never pulled the trigger on them. Well, I am so glad I didn't!! I came across these (under $40!) a few weeks ago, and I immediately ordered them! I honestly couldn't believe my eyes when I spotted them. They are true to size and most importantly they are super comfortable! Sometimes designer lookalike heels can be way too uncomfortable to wear and leave you thinking you should have just paid full price for the real deal. However, that is not the case with these! Y'all might remember the Christian Siriano pumps I purchased from Payless as well in this post, which I have been loving and wearing so much lately! Clearly, I'm on a little thrift kick with these finds, but what's not to love!? This is not sponsored at all, but I will say Buddy is loving my savvy purchases! And, there's no denying I love finding a steal and sharing it with you all! Happy shopping!! XO

Springy LBD in Georgetown

Dress: VAVA by Joy Han | Sandals: Steve Madden
Clutch: Sold out, super similar here | Lips: Clé De Peau in "112S"

Happy first day of Spring!! Hallelujah!!!! I could not be more thrilled for the new season ahead!! I am looking forward to some warmer weather, sunshine, and longer evenings! Today, I am sharing this little off the shoulder number by a brand that I've come across on Revolve that is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. I just can't seem to get enough of this line with its fun prints, bright colors, and most of all the inexpensive price tags!! I know I will be ordering more from this line for Spring and Summer, so I hope you love it as much as I do!

Also, if you haven't tried Clé de Peau's extra rich lipstick, I highly recommend it! It is super moisturizing and the best part of all is that you do not need a lip liner to go with it! I have been loving it SO much! One step and you're ready to go... no liner or gloss needed because it really is so moisturizing! The only downfall is that you do need to buy the lipstick holder (which is super luxurious I might add!) when purchasing one of their lipstick colors. If you don't buy the holder, the refill color will just come in this little plastic tube. However, you can keep the same lipstick holder and just switch out the color (or refills) when you're ready for a change! I've always been a fan of Clé de Peau even though it's definitely a little pricey. However, you truly get what you pay for and sometimes that's just hard to beat in the beauty department! I am hoping to try one of their foundations soon, and I will definitely do a review on here after I give it a shot! Wishing you a fabulous start to your week! As always, thanks for stopping by! XO

Vacay Ready

Vacay Ready

Denim Mini | Pom-Pom Dress | Gladiator Sandals
Black Sunglasses | Tassel Earrings | Rings | Oribe
Off the Shoulder Swimsuit | By Terry Sheer Lip | Denim Shorts | Studs
Blue Top | Blush Top | Bobbi Brown Blush | Slides
Wedges | Beach Bag | Round Ray-bans | Bikini Top | Bikini Bottoms

Happy Friday!! With all of the snow and cold temperatures this week, I can't help but dream of a beach vacay right now. I wanted to round up a few things I have my eye on for my next vacation! I will be headed to Miami in May to celebrate my bestie, Natalie, for a few days and I am so looking forward to it! I have never been to Miami, and there's no denying I'm majorly craving some warmth and sunshine! I was walking thru Nordstrom a few days ago and spotted these tassel earrings, and I couldn't leave the store without them in this fun pink color... they are SO cute in person! Also, this little off the shoulder top is only $25, and it comes in tons of colors. It would be such a great piece to have to throw on with some denim shorts when you need a quick outfit. And, how adorable is this pom-pom dress? I am loving this version here, too! Wishing you a fabulous weekend!! I am looking forward to a quiet weekend at home and hopefully sleeping in a little tomorrow! XO

One Shoulder Ruffle Blouse Under $50

Top: H&M | Denim: Sold out but I highly recommend this brand!!
Heels: Sold out but love these! | Handbag: Chloé (loving this look for less)

This top!! I spotted this top on H&M's website a few days ago, and I immediately ordered it. You might remember a similar outfit to this one from this post, so I couldn't resist this similar style for just under $50 in this gorgeous baby blue color. It's great quality for the price, and I would say it runs true to size. Once the temps warm up, I think it would be so cute styled with this little black denim mini. A must have for Spring!! I hope you have a great rest of your week, and for any of you dealing with this snow... I feel your pain! Fingers crossed that it warms up soon! XO

Striped Romper

Romper: Faithful the Brand | Sandals: Steve Madden
Clutch: Sold out, similar here | Earrings: Vanessa Mooney
Nails: Orly "Kiss the Bride"  | Lips: Revlon in "Romantic"

How cute is this striped romper?! I love how it has a tie at the waist, so that it gives you some shape. Rompers can sometimes be tough for me with my height, but this one was a win! Also, I love how it includes some of my favorite trends for Spring with the off-the-shoulder details, sleeve slits, and stripes! I think you can totally dress it up with the sandals I'm wearing here or dress it down a little with these wedges. I'm also obsessed with these Chloé wedges this season. I adore the updated scalloped details on them! However, you can't beat the Marc Fisher version here for a fraction of the price.

We had a lot of fun at the hockey game Monday night... it was definitely different but we enjoyed it! Not growing up with hockey, we literally didn't even know how many periods were in a game. I am laughing as I type this, but it's the truth! Last night, Brady got the last of his puppy shots. I cannot believe he's almost five months old! He weighed in right at six pounds, which means he gained around two pounds since our last visit to the vet just about a month ago! Anyways, I am super chatty today, but I hope you have a great rest of your week! XO
