Embroidered Peplum Top

I always have my eye out for fun tops that add pops of color to outfits. This cute embroidered peplum top does just that. It has such pretty embroidery with a classic black background. You can pair it with just about anything from high rise jeans to shorts to denim skirts, or even dress it up with ponte pants.

 

How fun is all the detail? From the gorgeous colors, to the polka dot background, it has a lot going on. I love the flattering peplum and sheer top layer. It’s perfect for summer nights, especially paired with some cute sandals. My sandals are such great basics, with a sweet tie back. They also come in gray, olive green and red. I love to pair them with jeans and sundresses.

 

What I love most about this outfit is the comfort factor. Nothing is better than a great fitting pair of jeans with a cute, un-basic top for a night out + everything is at such a good price point. My top is $30 and these gorgeous sandals are under $33. For a non-heeled option, you can pair flat bow slides. I’ve linked my favorite pair that gets compliments every single time I wear them. I’ve also provided budget denim as well as some classic Levi’s. Cheers to summer weather!

Cold Shoulder Ruffle Sweater

I saw this sweater on my friend Sylvia Pilawa (you need to read her blog, here), and knew it was one of those must-haves. It combines several of my favorite things- ruffles, blush, and a cold-shoulder. It’s the most perfect sweater for spring and it’s currently on sale. Go get it here.Read More

Lace and Bell Sleeves

This little pink dress is so sweet, gorgeous and perfect for Valentine’s Day – the sweetest holiday of them all. With gorgeous lace and bell sleeves, it fits the day perfectly, but also works for bridal and baby showers, easter, brunch with friends, and so many more events. The best part is it’s $27! You can afford a really cute pair of shoes to go with it (if the weather allows…).

It’s a mini length with two layers and a mock neckline. I love the ruffles on the bell sleeves. This blush tone works well with black, but I plan on wearing my nude sandals in the spring and summer (totally not an option right now – the temps are in the 20s).

  My bag goes with me just about everywhere. It has gorgeous classic quilting and a chain strap. I love the all black version, but there is a black version with a gold chain and even a full velvet style. If you want the cutest of bags, try this heart shaped one from Rebecca Minkoff.

Choker Top + Fuzzy Coat

I feel like a total rocker in this look, which isn’t exactly what I was going for, but I embrace it and love it. It’s super comfortable but still on trend and the pieces will not break the bank. One of my favorite parts is every piece is so wearable – there are a lot of options for different looks with each item. My faux-leather leggings look great with oversized sweaters or tailored down with blouses. This choker top looks just as good with jeans. And this coat? THIS COAT. I didn’t take it off the first weekend I brought it home. It is low-stock, but I’ve linked lots of similar options below.Read More

Lace Cut Outs + OTK Boots

Cut out lace is gorgeous. It’s modern, fresh and edgy – definitely not your grandmother’s lace (however there is a time and place for her lace, too). It looks beautiful dressed up and dressed down, and is a unique pattern for fall. Cut out lace is essentially an embroidery fabric that can be anything from a typical flower pattern to this more geometric version.Read More
