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!

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

wrap it up

i got a reader request (yay!) for a post on the items i wore in miami a few weeks back. for those interested, it features this striped wrap skirt from revolve, along with a one piece from solid & striped, ace of something straw hat, pair of knock off k jacques sandals which have since sold out from h&m, and old joie beach tote. The skirt is one of my favorite spring purchases but unfortunately has not been able to leave my closet since this trip…

over the past few years i’ve found myself wearing fewer and fewer skirts with the influx of good denim out there, but i’m destined to change that this summer. i love the idea of pairing a ruffled mini with a tshirt and jean jacket for saturday brunch, with sneaks and a sweatshirt for a girlie meets tomboy look, or obviously over a swimsuit as an easy coverup alternative.

want one for yourself? other top ruffled mini picks include ones by j.crew, tularosazara, alice + olivia, LPAfor love and lemons, isabel marant and h&m.

1– vneck tshirt  2– illesteva sunglasses   3– jean jacket 4– superga sneakers  5– polka dot mini
