By the time May rolls around in Texas we all know spring has seen its better days and summer is around the corner. If you’re a Texas girl you probably live for sun dresses, just like me! I mean truthfully there’s nothing better than being comfortable in a dress when you’re about to melt outside. Throw on some wedges, grab my denim jacket & I’m out the door!
This TopShop dress is right up my alley, as it’s flowy & lightweight. Oh & it’s under $50… so even better. And I love the lace detail, as it spices it up! And as you can see, you can easily pair a denim jacket with it, in case you are like me and are always freezing wherever you go [even when it’s 100 degrees outside]. This denim jacket has been through the ringer, as it has gone on every trip with me the past couple of years & makes frequent appearances at work. LOL!
I mean it’s easy to throw over a dress like this for work [if your work space is more casual] & is perfect for traveling on cold airplanes. Honestly, I found this cutie from Target a couple years ago for $30 & have not been able to find another like it.
If you don’t own a denim jacket, you most definitely should, because every girly needs one! To help you out, I rounded up all my faves below… & most are under $100. Thinking I may scoop one of these up, as I need another go-to in my closet.
Happy Thursday & happy shopping!
Another Wednesday means another #WeddingWednesday post! Today I wanted to switch it up & share a precious dress that would be perfect for all your bride to be’s. I swear I am still in full on bride mode, as anytime I find the perfect white dress I instantly think it would be great for a bridal festivity. When will I ever get past that I already got married? Asking for a friend. HA.
Wrap dresses are the hot item for spring. Some are a little pricey, but some are super inexpensive, like this precious thing! Nordstrom has a wrap dress I was dying to get my hands on, but I found this identical dupe that is half the price, from Forever 21. If you’ve followed me for a while, you know I am all about a good dupe!
This dress is under $30 & also comes in red. It’s the perfect length & would be great for any bridal festivities you may have! I am wearing my normal dress size in a small. I am thinking the red would be perfect too for some friends bridal showers I have coming up. Lord knows you can’t wear a white dress [or any white items] to another brides festivity, unless specified!
Pair this LWD with the perfect wedges + statement earrings & you are ready to go. Trust me when I say you’ll be turning heads. Which is the best feeling when the dress is a major steal!
Are you a bride to be? I would love to know!
Today is a start to an exciting new chapter, as I begin my new job with iHeartMedia. If you watched my Insta stories on Friday you know exactly what I am talking about! I am consumed with a ton of emotions. Such as, excitement, nervousness, apprehensive, motivation and more! As we kick off this work week, I wanted to share a funny story + a dress that is perfect for Easter Sunday.
My mom took me to Vegas for my 21st birthday [three years ago] & we have been dying to go back. I was wasting time on Google about a month ago & found some very inexpensive hotels & flights for Vegas. I instantly called my mom & told her let’s just book the trip & go! We have nothing to lose, except maybe a little money 😉
After little consideration, we booked the trip for her, my aunt & I to go. We were talking the other day about plans for Easter & turns out we fly out for Vegas Easter Sunday. LOL! We now know why the flights & hotels were extremely cheap. Looks like we will be attending church Saturday night & praising Jesus from our airplane Sunday morning. We are trying to find the humor in it, as it will be a girls trip for the books!
I was in Saks Off Fifth the other day & came across this precious $40 dress! I am loving all stripes this season & had to get my hands on this green cutie when I saw it. It’s perfect for church or even the office, if you have a more laid back dress code. I am wearing an XS & it fits great! I love the floral detail around the neckline & hem. Would be perfect for a more casual wedding, too!
What are your Easter plans?
White denim is something I live for all year long. Yes, even in winter! It’s always so hard for me to find a flattering white pair of denim, that I feel confident in. Anyone else have that problem? Well, today I have good news, because I have found my favorite white denim jeans for spring!
The other day while I was browsing at Nordstrom [okay, maybe a little shopping, too] I tried on one of my favorite brands of jeans, Articles of Society. I have several pairs of regular denim from this brand, solely because they are comfy & inexpensive. I am not one who is going to pay $100+ for a pair of jeans, unless they are sent down from heaven. LOL! That’s why I love Articles of Society, because most pairs are around $60, which is not bad for a good pair of denim.
This particular white pair is what dreams are made of, because they are very flattering, the perfect length & actually comfortable. I do not know why, but white jeans are always so uncomfortable to me, but not this pair! I am wearing my normal size, 25, but could have maybe gone up a size for more stretch. Just depends on how you like to wear your denim!
To top off the jeans, I paired them with the most feminine off the shoulder blouse. It is only $35 & is precious for spring. I do not own anything else in this color, so I was super excited to add it to my closet!
What’s your favorite white denim? I would love to know!
Wow! I don’t know about you, but I am dragging this morning. This time change totally threw my body for a loop & it feels way earlier than it is! Oh & how dark it is outside doesn’t really help either. HA. But any who, I hope you had a fantastic weekend! The weather was yet again gorgeous here, so we soaked it up.
I started off the weekend with a fun VIP shopping event at the Tanger Outlets in Fort Worth, TX. It was so fun to mingle with other bloggers, like my friend Kirstin, from Styled by Sequins. We got to go to the different Tanger stores & get a sneak peek of some of the spring items. I did some major damage [don’t judge]! I couldn’t resist because they have some of my favorite stores like Steve Madden, H&M, The Loft, Express, Banana Republic, Kate Spade & more!
If you are not familiar with outlet shopping, you should be. I am firm believer in not paying full price for really anything. This girl lives for a good sale, & that is exactly what the Tanger Outlets have to offer! They stand for beating all other companies prices & will even guarantee your money back if you find an item for a lower price somewhere else!
The Tanger Outlets in Fort Worth opened last fall & are SO nice. Some outlets are on the dirtier side & not kept up, but these are outstanding, sista! If you are in the DFW area, I highly recommend making a stop by these in Fort Worth off of 35. It will be well worth your time & you can thank me later 😉
If you follow along on Instagram, I did a mini try on session with some of the fabulous items I snagged for cheap! These videos are saved on my “Try On” highlight on my home page. So head there to get an inside look at some items I found!
The Tanger Outlets are so generous & wants to give three followers the chance to win a $100 gift card. All you have to do to be entered to win is: Text FTW to 55695. So easy!
