One of my favorite time of the year is here, and that’s the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!! For cardholders, you can get early access now through July 20th and for everyone else the sale starts July 21st and runs through August 6th. I sifted through over 3000 pieces of merchandise and chose what I think are the best, and most affordable pieces. This wasn’t easy, so you can thank me later. Shop my favorite pieces below!
Since it’s the 4th of July and I know everyone is busy with friends and family, I wanted to keep this post short and to the point. With summer in full swing, I wanted to share some of my favorite slides with you! They’ve become my summer go-to shoe preference and I’m especially loving the frill and bow details. They go with everything and can be used as a statement piece for most outfits. Most of these are under $35! Keep scrolling to see some of my faves. I’ve also included some promo links at the bottom for Asos and Forever21!

Kimonos have become one of my new favorite staples for summer. I love them for so many reasons: they’re comfortable, they’re flattering, and if you ate a little too much at brunch they hide the muffin top quite well. [Read more…]
Summer is officially upon us, and this year I am so obsessed with one piece swimsuits. In the past, if you were a woman in your 20’s and 30’s you had to be wearing a two piece to be considered trendy. I personally am what I’ll call “top heavy” and pretty modest, so one pieces just make me feel more confident and secure and now they’re back and on the rise! What I absolutely love about them is how good they look on EVERYONE!
The problem with swimsuits is they can be rough on the wallet. I’ve recently done some research as to why swimsuits are SO expensive (I mean you’re covering my t***s and a** so why are you charging me an arm and a leg?) and came to some interesting conclusions:
Summer and festival season pretty much go hand in hand and that time is officially upon us!
It started with Coachella but then you have so many other great music festivals throughout summer: Vans Warped Tour, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza Austin City Limits and more. While these events are no doubt all about music, they’ve become quite the fashion scene.
I put together an outfit that has a very boho type vibe that would be perfect for a music festival. For a lot of these festivals, it’s a great idea to dress in layers. It’s usually pretty hot during the day and sometimes gets chilly at night. I’ve linked some of my favorite boho/festival style items below.
Goodbye, winter. Hello, spring! With spring comes sunshine, and with sunshine comes sunglasses! I’ve got a serious sunglasses addiction and can’t seem to have enough. One of my favorite trends of the moment are geometric sunglasses and I wanted to share some of my faves from Amazon with you all. Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!
I’m really loving a ton of 2017 spring trends right now, so much so that I wore hour in one outfit. Can you spot all the trends?
One of my favorite trends that started last year and is still going strong is the metallic shoe trend. What better way to take a simple outfit and dress it up than with some shine? This trend is leaking into spring with full on metallic sneakers, or sneakers with a metallic tip, or full on metallic boots, so it works for everyone regardless of your personal style.
My blog is focused on affordable fashion but every once in a great while i’ll save up and splurge on an item that I love and when I saw these YSL’s, I died and then they brought me back to life so I knew I had to have them. So while they’re over my usual price limit, I found some other goodies that I linked for you guys that are similar, more affordable but just as adorable.

I consider myself a pretty big advocate of being confident in your body, no matter the size; but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have insecurities. One of my biggest insecurities has always been my arms. So when a trend comes along that is designed to make them look skinnier, I’m going to jump all over that!
Statement sleeves is a trend that you’ve most likely seen everyone rocking lately, from celebrities to fashion bloggers; it’s a pretty big hit that won’t be going away anytime soon. What better way to make what I like to call a “subtle statement”. Check out some photos I took of this great bell-sleeve top I got at SheIn (linked below). Even though the top makes a statement all it’s own, I paired it with some statement red booties and adorable cross body/oversized clutch. I also linked some other bell-sleeve tops below. Let me know what you think about this trend in the comments below!
Remember when we were kids, and we made fun of adults who wore fanny packs? Well, the joke was on us because they are awesome. Living in Chicago, I do quite a bit of walking and recently I was walking to the store and thought about how annoying it was to carry my entire purse when all I really needed was my credit card. Not to mention, if you’re doing a full day of walking whether it’s to explore, shop, etc. it gets a little painful on the shoulders and back to carry a bag all day. That’s the day I decided I’m bringing fanny pack’s back! But this time, they’ll be in the form of a belt bag. This was the best decision I’ve made in a while. They’re stylish and it’s taken so much stress off of my shoulders.
Check out the way I styled the two I’ve recently purchased. Below i’ve linked some additional options that I love! Let me know if you would wear them below in the comments.
