Budget Denim

Truth be told, I am a creature of habit when it comes to denim.  AG and 7  for All Mankind are by far away and my favorite brands and have been for several years.  I’m also a fan of Paige, Joe’s, and Citizens.  But I don’t necessarily love the high price tag of these designer brands.  So every now and again, I’ll test out denim brands based on trend.

And that’s what led me to these jeans.  I saw one of my favorite bloggers, Emily, from The Sweetest Thing, wearing this specific pair and I thought they were so cute (she tends to wear the same brands of denim that I do), that I decided to give them a try.  And I am SO glad that I did!  Not only are they cute, comfy, and fit true to size, but the best part?  They are on sale for less than $90!  So if you are looking for new denim for the spring season, I would highly recommend these!

All About Those Shoes

I have been wanting these shoes for a long time, but was a little unsure about the price tag.  So after adding them to my Nordie’s shopping bag about 50 times over the last couple of months, I finally decided to go for it.  And you know what?  I am SO glad that I did.  Not only are they super comfortable but they go with WAY more than I thought they would.

In fact, I wore them while I was in Seattle this week for meetings and literally had co-workers and people on the street stopping me to ask where they were from!  Plus, since they are a perfect mix between a bootie and shoe, they are a great transitional piece for Fall!

Happy Friday, friends!  Hope you have fun plans to enjoy the last few days of summer.  I’ve been traveling like crazy, so am just excited to have the chance to sleep in my own bed for a few nights!

 

 

 

Summer Boho

I posted a photo on my Insta a couple of weeks ago wearing the top in today’s post, and I had so many questions about it, that I wanted to put it up on the blog.  It is another score from SheIn, and is a dupe for the Free People version-but this one won’t break the bank at under $20.  The quality is also great-just like the other pieces I have tried from SheIn.  It’s little short on me to be worn as a dress (keep in mind I am only 5’3″), but you could easily wear something underneath to give it a little length.  I styled mine with denim shorts and tied it in the back so that I could do a messy front tuck.  I also love it paired it with booties to give it a perfect summer boho feel.

Sunshine and Lace

I love a good deal.  In fact, I take pride in my bargain hunting skills.  So it should come as no surprise that I am a big fan of deal of the day websites.  And one of my current favorites? jane.com!  They have the perfect selection of jewelry, accessories, apparel, and home decor.  And not only are their prices fantastic, but they add new items to the site everyday. This yellow lace top is one of my favorite finds to date and has been on frequent rotation in my closet this summer (especially paired back to light wash denim!)! So be sure to stop by jane.com and check them out-there is sure to be something for everyone!

About Face

I love, love, love the military trend. Most likely because I have an obsession with cute jackets. And what’s cuter than a bomber? Or a surplus jacket? They are the perfect topper to just about any outfit. And while I normally tend to gravitate towards shades of army green, I couldn’t help but fall in love with this navy number when I spotted it at Macy’s a couple of months back. And even though the temps are still pretty warm, I can already tell that this is going to be a fantastic staple in my fall wardrobe…
