Pick of the Week: Wide Leg Pants

Friday, April 24, 2015



The best high rise wide leg pants just went on sale. I swear by the Chelsea 28 line at Nordstrom and wear my pleated wide leg pants all. the. time. (If you need a good visual, I'm wearing them here, here, and here). Word on the street is that the high rise pair fit almost exactly the same as the pleated pair, and for $52, I'd definitely give them a try. There are also a few other goodies on sale including these printed pants. Oh, and one of my favorite trench coats just got marked down 40% off. By the way, if you're looking for a great trench, don't miss my post from Wednesday...

Five Wallet Friendly Trench Coats

Wednesday, April 22, 2015


Affordable Trench coatsI have no issues with April showers so long as I have a good trench coat nearby. Whether you are looking to invest (love this, this, and this) or save on cash and find a wallet-friendly option, these five are worth a really good look. They are all $150 or under and will get you through the Spring looking smart and like you have your s**t together (because you do).

Never ever forget about ASOS when you are on the hunt for a coat. I snagged a fantastic winter coat last year for a ridiculous price. Their trench coats are no exception and the Vila Trench Coat might be my favorite. The stone color is awesome and at just $105, you could convince yourself to add something else to your cart (I might). I also love this one. The draping details and nude color are so nice ($135).

It's no surprise that Nordstrom has a few fantastic coats too. The Chelsea 28 Belted Trench is my favorite. The navy blue is a cool alternative and still works with everything. How about the Trouve trench in blue feather? So good.

Bloggers Who Budget: Stripe Love

Bloggers Who Budget Stripe Love
I am in full support of clothes that make me feel like I am wearing pajamas. This striped shirt from Madewell might just be the perfect top. 

Bloggers Who Budget Stripe Love
This week the Bloggers Who Budget Collaboration is all about sharing our favorite stripes that are $75 and less. This Madewell Courier Shirt is lightweight and has that perfect boxy shape that makes it so easy to wear. It comes in other colors/prints and I'm planning on grabbing another one soon. You could go down a size in this shirt and it would work fine, but I stayed true-to-size because I want the option to wear it untucked too.

By the way, if you haven't found a drapey pant that you love, go try on the Reese Pant. So far, these are my favorite drapey pants that J.Crew has done. They fit true-to-size and I like them even more than the Crepe Drawstring Pant from last year.

Pick of the Week: Piperlime Closeout Sale

Friday, April 17, 2015




Piperlime is officially closing their virtual doors on April 30th. It feels like a really good friend is moving away with the only difference being that I'm allowed to raid her closet before she takes off. It's definitely a go-to site that I will miss, especially their well curated selection of products under $100. In honor of Piperlime's upcoming closing, I've put together a few of my favorite budget-friendly products that are still available (all under $100).

If you missed the chance to grab an Anorak Jacket, this one is good and on major sale. I also love these Dolce Vita Lace Up Sandals and they come in three colors including a gorgeous coral option. There are still a few great tops left under $100 including this Printed Side Slit Top and pretty Eyelet Bib Top.

The good stuff is going fast. Make sure you swing by and take a look before the dreaded day arrives.

I'm such a big fan of wearing all white. I wore these same white trousers back in February for a Winter White look and this top last summer for our Bloggers Who Budget Collaboration. The common theme here is that I'm wearing something in each all white post from the Chelsea 28 line at Nordstrom. Their pieces are classic and modern, but have an edgy twist that I love. If you're a sucker for a good wide leg pant like me, go try these on. They are the best wide leg pants for your money and they also come in both black and white. Don't miss these amazing wide leg pleated pants or this new Longline Vest. Before I forget, I have to mention this beautiful Alexis Bittar bauble. I'm not usually a big bling person, but this one is really special. The one I'm wearing is sold out, but I cannot get enough of this necklace or this ring.

Pick of the Week: Anthropologie Necklace

Friday, April 10, 2015



My favorite way to ease the pain after an excessively long work week is by shopping. There are a few standouts this week over on Anthropologie sale, including this gorgeous Aura Ladder Necklace ($29.95). This one is so good and perfect to wear with your favorite tank top and cut-offs for summer. I also love the Golden Amadine Necklace ($29.95) and these Arrowhead Earrings for just $19.95. You can't beat good quality guilt-free shopping.

See you on Monday,
