steal her style #6

the weather gods have not cooperated with me (yet!) but i am dying for a day warm enough to slip into an easy, slinky dress and lots of light neutrals– hopefully accented with a healthy (faux) glow like alessandra, above. get the vibe with these slip dress options by anine bing, mango, rag & bone, topshop and the reformation

1– silk slip dress 2– oversized jean jacket (available in petite!)

3– woven mules (under $100) 4– two-tone bucket bag 5– horse bit belt

6– my new fave all natural lip balm (thx rjb!) 7– coin necklace

spring swaps

today i rounded up 5 dupes for some of the hottest designer brands this spring. i am especially loving all things ulla johnson and banjanan right now– something about spring weather makes me crave that ethereal, flowy hippie-hanging-in-the-park vibe (i.e. phoebe on girlfriends guide).

since this isn’t my typical style, i tend to mix in lower priced boho pieces and spend more on classic, big ticket items. luckily i have found tons of dupes at h&m, topshop, zara and mango (my “core 4” fast fashion stores) as well as other random finds at target and old navy.

iro- save, splurge

flagpole swim- save, splurge

ulla johnson- save, splurge

staud- save, splurge

banjanan- save, splurge

are there other styles for Spring ’19 you’d like to find dupes for? if so, lmk! happy short week CPs!

purple drank

move over millennial pink, there is a new hue making waves this spring. while it’s only early april, so far I have seen oodles of lavender, light purple and lilac making its way into stores’ and onto shelves. while i am typically very color shy and prefer investing in neutral pieces, there is something fresh and electric about the shade that is encouraging me to be bold. i plan to test drive a pop here and there (like the tiered ulla skirt below) and take a page from the CPs below, mixing in lots of white and camel to make it more wearable. what do we think ladies, does spring’s new shade deserve a yay or neigh?

1– boxy top 2– beaded bag 3– strappy sandals

4– crepe pants 5– lucite hoops 6– loose knit sweater

7 & 8– ribbed bikini top & bottoms 9– tiered skirt
