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

jammy time

i saw regina george wearing army pants and flip flops, so i bought army pants and flip flops….

last week at the st. lucia concert at city winery, i saw a chic pea wearing a dark printed pajama top. she easily stood out against a sea of black and had paired it simply half tucked with a ponytail, skinny jeans and some western style booties…it was all just working. while her bag and booties were very trendy, the black made them feel accessible enough that even i could pull the look off. so of course i did what one does in the age of mobile mania– i ordered most of her outfit promptly in the cab ride home. below are the three winners from my quest for a pajama top, plus other less expensive options by express, zara and nordstrom rack.

get her whole look below…

1– silk button-up top, j.crew

2– juliet silk pajama top, cinq a sept

3– liana silk pajama blouse, l’agence

4– “ori” satin lipstick, tom ford

5– huxley booties, topshop

6– kendall distressed skinny jeans, grlfrnd

7– mini johnny bag, danse lente

8– compass ring, retrouvai

9– bee pinky ring, mejuri
