After getting several requests from you ladies on where to find straw bags under $50, I thought it was about time to share the good news. It is actually easier than you think to find an on trend bag on a budget. I have not tried any of these bags out myself yet but all of the ones that I found have amazing reviews (make sure you read them too!). This trend was around last year and I honestly don’t see it going anywhere anytime soon. So if you’ve had your eye on one but don’t want to fork out an arm and leg, here are some for all budgets!
Overalls have come full circle as do most trends. My guess is that most of you probably haven’t worn them since you were under the age of 5 so the thought of rocking them now feels either childish or down right crazy. Just like I swore I’d never wear skinny jeans (spoiler alert: now that’s all I own), I swore the overall trend was definitely not for me. Here I am eating my words yet again because I’m officially head over heels for these overalls.
The Madewell overalls that I’m wearing are by far the most popular pair of overalls out there right now. They are a pretty penny but after trying out several pairs of lower priced options, none compared to the Madewell pair in terms of quality and fit. To be completely transparent I also only tried three other pairs- this Old Navy pair (runs true to size), this American Eagle pair (size up 2 sizes), and this Francesca’s pair (true to size). Don’t get me wrong, all are decent alternatives but after experiencing the Madewell ones there was just no turning back. So if you don’t want to even be tempted with the price tag, do not even try them on because you will inevitably buy them and question everything you once stood for.
What I love about these overalls is the amount of stretch, the high waist, large pockets and large bib structure in the back. You will find that a lot of overalls have more of a suspender look in the back which is not the most flattering and usually results in gaping. They do fit true to size (i’m wearing an XS) and have adjustable straps. If you want to try out this trend as well, I’ve rounded up my favorites at all price points!
I’ve shared so many espadrilles on my Instagram that I thought it was about time to do a round up on the blog. While this trend really started several years ago (we can thank Chloe and then Marc Fisher for that one), this year there are just so many options at all price points. Thank goodness! We are seeing espadrilles come in sneaker, wedges, slide and every other form you can imagine. If you can dream it, I guarantee they already have it 😉
Although I held off buying a pair of the Marc Fishers for the past two years, I finally caved (I bought these) and am now wondering why I spent all of this money on dupes when the splurge is this good. If you are looking for a good dupe though, these are hands down my favorite and SO comfortable. If you want to shop either collage, simply click on the image that you want to shop.
With Valentine’s Day coming up, pink and red is everywhere you look! Whether you are planning to have a fancy night out on the town or a date with your couch and a tub of ice cream, there’s an outfit fix for that 😉 While I firmly believe Valentine’s Day is highly overrated, it’s still one of my favorite excuses to get all dolled up. Even if you don’t have a date this year, grab your best girls and treat yourselves! After all, ain’t no man going to love you better than you can love yourself! Now go ahead and click purchase on that little red dress you put in your basket but weren’t actually planning to buy 😉

Whether you are making a point to hit the gym hard in 2018 or just want to up your comfy/stretchy clothes (no judgement here), athleisure is everywhere these days. Can I just say thank goodness it’s becoming more and more socially acceptable to wear leggings other places than the gym? Now people have no idea if you just had a 2 hour workout, are headed to a cycle glass, or rolled out of bed and pulled on yesterday’s leggings and that’s a beautiful thing 😉 If you aren’t ready to drop a pretty penny on this new trend, some of my favorite places to score affordable athletic wear are TJ Maxx, Target, OId Navy and Nordstrom Rack. See the rest of my picks below.
