Espadrilles On A Budget

1. | 2. | 3.

Hello, dolls! Today it is all about: LUST (Chanel Espadrilles) vs. MUST (Alternative Espadrilles)!

Why?

Because they are a MUST-HAVE this season! The Chanel Espadrilles go for about $750 a pair but most of us are on a modest budget — so, I decided to do some ‘digging’ to find some great alternatives for y’all instead! And boy (!) did I get lucky: I found 3 AH-MAZING styles for $!

1,2,3…let’s shop!

Blouse: B. Jewel via Marshalls | Boho Pants: Truth NYC via Marshalls | Handbag: Vintage Chanel (similar here) | Shoes: Tommy Hilfiger (sold out, similar here) | Sunglasses: Ray Ban Aviator

Happy Monday, darlings! I hope all of you had a fabulous weekend! Today I’m completely decked out in Marshall’s attire and a FAB FOUND that is! I got these harem/boho pants at their juniors section, as well as the beautiful fuchsia colored blouse (yep, every now and then I shop at the kids/juniors section!). I really love this outfit because it’s airy and SO comfortable! Who says fashion has to be painful? Oh, and before I forget: My son, Kingston wants to be photographed too! Every time we shoot he walks up to me and goofs around! So adorable – hence I have to share a few pics of him as well.

PS: He’s decked out in OshKosh (in case you’re wondering!). 🙂

Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!

Happy Friday, lovelies! Pinup Darling sent me this awesome ‘Dockside Dinner‘ dress in mint green and I’m head over heels in love with it – even though I prefer my dresses and/or skirts to be knee length (I’m Christian); but I simply must admit: It’s super darling and sweet! PS: How handsome is my little boy? Love him SO much!

What’s your preferred length on dresses and/or skirts?

As always, thanks for stopping by & have a great weekend!

Happy Thursday, dolls! Spring is finally in full bloom and I couldn’t be more excited! I’m really into colors these days (preferably pink) because it simply lifts my mood and literally says “IT’S SPRING!” don’t you agree? I’m also super exited for all of the tulips that are currently blooming everywhere! It’s been a rough and harsh winter for us Chicagoans – so, this certainly is a nice & welcomed change of scenery!

What excites you about spring?!

Meet When Wear & Now

As a way to show support and give recognition to some of my blogger friends, I’ve decided to launch a new series simply called “Meet…”. First up, is the lovely Brittany Hinrichs from When Wear & Now.

What made you want to start your blog?

I started my blog as a creative outlet for myself, and to showcase my overflowing closet, but it has developed into so much more these past few months. Now, I want to show women that as soon as you determine what your style is, and what works for you, and your body type, you will be unstoppable!  How you dress conveys your personality, your mood, and helps people get to know you before you even speak, so your better off putting your best foot forward, preferably in heels! Paired with a great handbag too of course!

How would you describe your style?

It’s hard to describe my style since it changes depending on what mood I am in, but I would have to say it lies somewhere in between lady like glam, and bohemian chic. My style icons are Miranda Kerr and Rachel Zoe.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

5 years a long time to look ahead, but I am up for anything that gets thrown my way! Whether than means I will still be blogging, if that means I move to New York or LA to pursue other fashion ventures, I am not sure, but one thing is for sure. Whatever I do, one thing is for sure, my goal is to help women be confident with who they are, and the way you dress has everything to do with that!
