Gingham

You guys! I love this dress SO much.  I was totally on the fence about it before I tried it on, but now that it’s arrived, I seriously can’t seem to stop thinking of different ways to style it.  I love that you can dress it up or dress it down, and that it lends itself well back to a pop of color.  The possibilities really are endless.  And if you’ve been following my blog for a while, then you know that I love adding items to my wardrobe that present multiple outfit options.  That is the best, and most cost efficient way to build your wardrobe!

Stripes

I have a hard time saying no to anything striped.  Particularly striped dresses this time of year.  So when I spotted this cute little number at Nordstrom, I knew it would not only be the perfect thing to wear on the 4th, but that it would also be a comfy basic to keep on rotation in my closet this summer.  And at only $38, who could resist?

Pastel

Though the seasons and trends come and go, long sleeve dresses have been at the top of my list for quite a while now.  And this dress is a definite favorite.  I love the soft pastel print, and the lightweight fabric makes it a perfect transitional piece to wear as the weather warms up (and it’s definitely getting warm around here)!

Dress: Nordstrom, also love THIS, THIS, and THIS | Necklace: BaubleBar | Sunnies: Prada | Bag: Tory Burch | Wedges: Jeffrey Campbell (my faves!)

Happy Tuesday, friends!

Cardi

I tend to gravitate towards denim jackets when I’m looking for a layering piece to wear over a dress.  But this spring, I have been starting to reach towards cardigans more often.  And I have to say, I am loving the look and the ease of pairing a cardigan with a dress.  A longer cardi is also a great option to wear over a dress that borders on the shorter side for a little added coverage.

Casual

I wear my army green surplus jackets all the time.  So when I happened to stumble on my favorite silhouette in a pale pink color, I was 100% sold.  I love putting a new spin on an old classic, because not only is it comfortable, but it still feels fresh and new at the same time.

Sightseeing in NYC

If you all are looking for a great basic top to add to your wardrobe, I can’t say enough about this Free People tunic.  It was the perfect shirt to layer with for sightseeing in some crazy weather in NYC the other week.  It’s also always a go-to when I travel, or when I’m looking for an easy outfit to throw on.  And the best part?  It’s on major sale right now and comes in a bunch of colors (I may or may not own 4 of them)!!!

Blush

This jacket is about the best thing in my closet right now.  If it looks familiar, that’s because I own it in black and in a burgundy color and wear them both all of the time.  In fact, I am in NYC right now and my black version was the first thing I packed for my trip.  And the good news is, Nordstrom has it fully stocked in black, cognac, and this blush color right now.  The fit is amazing, the faux leather is gorgeous quality, AND it’s under $100!  I would highly recommend adding this piece (in at least one, if not two!), colors to your closet this season.  It’s one of those classic staples that you will wear again and again (all year round), and I just can’t say enough good things about it!

Designer Handbag Hack

Ok, confession time.  I LOVE handbags.  Like, seriously love them.  But what I don’t love, are the crazy high price points.  And while I can score pretty much anything for a good deal (it’s my hidden talent!), I’ve found that it’s nearly impossible to get an authentic designer bag at a discount.

So I couldn’t have been more thrilled to discover Trendlee.  Not only do they buy and sell gently used designer bags (and I’m talking all of the current coveted brands and styles), but they authenticate everything, so you never have to worry about whether or not you’re getting the real deal.  I mean seriously, how gorgeous is this pink Prada?  And I swear, if I didn’t know better, I would think that it’s brand new.  It is in absolutely flawless condition.  So be sure to swing by their site to check out their inventory (they add new bags all the time!).  AND be sure to enter code: ALLDOLLEDUP at checkout to save 5% off of your order!!!

Prada Bag: Trendlee  (enter ALLDOLLEDUP at checkout to save 5%!!)

Top: Nordstrom (obsessed!)

Skinnies: 7 for all mankind

Necklace: French Kande (enter ALLDOLLEDUPBLOG in the comments at checkout and get a FREE pair of earrings!)

Bracelet: Chan Luu

And a very Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all of you!  I hope you have something fun planned today and tonight.  Be safe and enjoy!
