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!

Bootleg

I have to admit, I am so used to wearing my skinny jeans, that it feels a little funny to wear a different silhouette of denim.  And while it is definitely going to take some getting used to (just like it did when I started wearing skinnies!), I have to admit, it is kind of nice to add a different style to add to my wardrobe rotation.  But I want to know, what are you all thinking about the bootleg/flare denim trend this season?

Simple

Believe it or not, sometimes I have no idea what to wear. Honestly,  I think we all have those days where we just stand in our closets completely blank, not really knowing where to start.  So when I find myself having one of those moments, I’ve found that sometimes the best solution is to go back to basics and go with what I “know”.  For me, that is a simple top (usually a tank), a favorite pair of jeans, and a pair of pumps.  It’s an outfit I always feel good in and it’s typically appropriate for any occasion.  Plus, it’s a great blank canvas to change-up with a fun necklace, statement pumps, or other great accessories!

And be sure so scroll to the bottom of the post-I’ve got a round-up of the BEST Labor Day sales below (including where you can score my favorite go-to tops, like the one in this post, for 40% off!!!)! Happy holiday weekend, friends!

Gingham

Gingham has always been one of my very favorite prints.  So when I saw that my favorite Portofino shirt from Express came in a light blue gingham this spring, it was an obvious choice to add to my wardrobe.  And let me tell you, I have already worn this shirt a ton AND have so many more ideas of how I will continue to style it different ways all summer long. But I want to know, what you are guys thinking of the gingham trend this season?

Sheinside

I’ve been eyeing the Sheinside website for quite a while now.  So when they reached out and asked if I would be interested in trying out some of their clothes, I couldn’t help but oblige.  And while there were SO many cute things to choose from on their site, I ultimately settled on a dress that is almost identical to my favorite Free People dress (which you can see here).  At a mere price tag of $30 vs. the $148 original version, I wanted to compare the two and really get a feel for the quality of clothing on Sheinside.  And you guys, I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. While it is a little shorter than the my Free People dress, I overall like the fit better.  The arms were also a little slimmer too, which I also prefer.  And I have to say, I was also quite impressed with the quality-not only the was the fabric very nice, but the dress was also fully lined.  After this experience, I will definitely be shopping with Sheinside again.  In fact, you can see my current wish list at the bottom of the post!

Brights

In case you haven’t noticed, I am into all things floral lately.  I don’t know what it is, but I just can’t seem to help myself.  And stripes and florals together?  Pretty sure that is one of my favorite combos of all time.  Especially when you add in a little pop of leopard!

Neon Dream

I love bright colors.  And at the top of that list?  All things neon.  Which makes this skirt one of my very favorite things in my closet this spring.  Not only do I love the bright shade, but it’s nicely lined, has the perfect amount of structure, and feels completely different from anything else in my closet while still being a classic silhouette.  And even better than that?  YOU can snag it on sale for 30% off right now (it also comes in a couple of other gorgeous colors!).  Link below!!!

Stripes

Sometimes there is nothing better than a great stripe.  It’s a tried and true print that never goes out of style and looks great in tops, jackets, pants, shoes, even bags!  So if you don’t have any stripes in your closet, or if you have been too busy wearing florals this spring and neglecting your stripes (like me!), then it’s definitely time to revisit!  And just in time for the weekend!

Leopard Blazer

Like I’ve always said, leopard can be used as a neutral and works well back to pretty much any color you have in your closet.  But truth be told, leopard and red is one of my all-time favorite combos-a pair that I often find myself gravitating towards.  And since neutrals have been reigning supreme in my closet as of late, I decided it was time to put a little pop of color back in my wardrobe-and this was the perfect choice!

White Out

I have been really into neutrals lately.  But perhaps equally as high on my radar is anything white.  And based on what’s going on out in the market, I can tell I’m not alone!  White is one of the hottest trends of the season.  And with warmer temps upon us, I am ready to put all things white on heavy rotation in my closet! But I want to know, what are you guys thinking about the white trend this season?
