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!

crop swap

i love the unexpected styling of this black aritzia wrap top with a pair of cropped navy pants, but the look got even sweeter when i found a $20 dupe for the shirt at h&m! the sexiness of an open back pairs perfectly against slightly tomboyish chinos, for a Gwen Stefani sort of vibe. Try it two ways, dressed up or down…

1– h&m tie top    2– aritzia crop top    3– flared chinos

4– sunglasses    5– bucket bag    6– wedge sandals

7– superstar sneakers    8– gold bracelet    9– rainbow bracelet

hope you have a good week CPs!! Xx

drop in the bucket

the ‘it’ bags for spring are shaping up nicely (lol, i crack myself up). while many of you are probably sick of me still yammering on about bucket bags, since they’ve been hot for several seasons, leave it to fashion to re-invent an old favorite. meet the bucket bag 2.0. – cleaner, smaller, more structured and many resembling an actual bucket. while the simon miller ring bag below is a hit with all the street style stars, its tiny open shape is perhaps not the most practical for shlepping your everyday essentials around. but practicality be dammed. it’s springy and cute, like carrying around a little pot of flowers. check out the looks and my favorite bag picks below….
