Happy Friday and Happy Cinco de Mayo Friends! Sharing a quick post of some of my top 5 favorites items from Anthropologie this month.

In the Mood: 5 Shoe Styles for Spring (Splurge vs. Save)

Now that April is coming to an end, it’s definitely time to schedule a pedicure and step into a new pair of shoes this spring. Whether you are looking for something casual, strappy or classic, then look no further cause I’ve got you covered.  I’m not sure about you all, but I personally can’t afford spending almost $1k in a pair of shoes.  If I had that money I’d rather spend it on a new purse or clothes, paying a bill or adding the money to my savings account.  If I can find a similar version of a designer shoe, then I’m definitely going to buy it, especially if it’s a trendy style.  And it’s so easy to do.  Lately I’ve found some really good duplicates at Target and DSW, so there’s never a need to blow your budget.

Well, I’ve put together a list of the top 5 spring shoe styles that you’ll need this spring.  And there’s a little something for everyone one at every price point.

The bow slide is definitely one of my favorite shoe trends of the season right now.  It’s a perfect staple for spring and summer that will transition easily from day to night. I’ve already purchased these slides in pink and stripes and I’m really debating about picking up the black pair. I mean you can’t beat the price tag on these cuties – they’re a real steal at $25.

One style that will never go out of style is a pair of  the tried-and-true espadrille. It’s the perfect option for spring or summer.  There are so many different styles this season like these flats, these slip-ons or these fun wedges that everyone is wearing lately. I’m personally obsessed with these classic espadrille wedges from Steve Madden because you don’t have to worry about a pedicure and you can still get a perfect “springy” look. 

This playful and colorful sandal is back again this season and you don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars like this one and this one to try out this whimsical trend. Designer dupes like Sam Edelman, ASOS and Target are popping up everywhere this spring, so you can find a budget friendly version of this sandal that’s perfect for your wallet.  Grab yourself a sweet pair of pom-pom sandals like this one to add a fun twist to your spring wardrobe. 

The block heeled sandal is another shoe trend that is both comfortable and chic. The sturdy and versatile square-like heel makes a statement all on it’s own and you don’t have to worry about sore feet after wearing them all day.  Trade in your classic stilettos and grab yourself a block heel sandal with a cute ankle strap like these or structured style like these.  Wear them with a pair of jeans for a more casual look or a dress for a night out.

The classic gladiator sandal has been popular for some time now and it’s definitely here to stay. If you don’t have a pair of these strappy detailed sandals or if you’re in need of a new pair, then pick up a pair like this one or this one.  These gladiators give you an instant boho chic vibe without breaking the bank.

What are your thoughts on splurging vs. saving? Would you rather save your money and buy the real thing or save your money and get the look for way less?

In the Mood – Currently Loving

Happy Sunday Friends! The other day I realized that I haven’t posted a list of my favorite things in a pretty long time. So I just put together a fun list of a few things that I want to buy right now and most of them are under $100.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been obsessing over everything blush lately! It’s a welcomed break from the black staples in my closet and a it’s perfect transition color into the spring and summer season.

In the Mood – J.Crew Fitting Room Reviews

J.Crew is offering 40% off your purchase when you use the code: HOLIDAY.  The sale starts today and runs until Nov. 27th just in time for Thanksgiving weekend.  Well I wanted to share with you a few of my fitting room reviews on some of the new arrivals at J.Crew.  If you haven’t checked them out yet, then head over to the new arrivals or check out some of my favorites here.  Anyways, here are a few of my fitting room review of some of my favorite new arrivals.  Let me know what you think.

I’m loving this Bow-shoulder Top in Festive Plaid so much that it had to come home with me.  I missed out on the bow-shoulder top in stripe and gingham from the summer, so I wasn’t going to miss out again.  I’m wearing a size 4 here and I would say that this top runs true to size.  The top is a little loose with a slight flow at the hemline.  I tried on a size 2 just to see the different and it was just a little too snug under my armpits.  The material is lightweight, but crisp like a button down and you already know that this bow on the shoulder is the main star.  It's just perfect.   

I’m obsessed with the print on this Flounce Silk Dress in Wolfstooth.  When I saw this dress online and then in the store, I had to try it on immediately.  It’s a relaxed fit dress with a flouncy ruffle hem which I love.  And I loved the way the dress fit, but I wasn’t in love with it.  It just hung on me due to the straight silhouette.  I would have liked for it to be a little more fitted.  

The Silk Twill Pant in Wolfstooth is a relaxed fit pant and it is so comfortable.  This pant can easily be dressed up with some heels or down with some flats or even sneakers for a sporty look. Like the dress, I’m obsessed with the wolfstooth print and I love the silk material too.  I paired this pant with the New Perfect Shirt in Cotton Poplin like the model online.  My store didn’t have my size when I went to try them on, so I'm wearing a size 8 and they were very baggy.  I tried them on in a size 6 last week and they were a perfect fit, I just didn't pull the trigger then.  Luckily I was able to order them before they sold out.  I'm really hoping that these pants will be restocked so all of you can grab a pair. 

This cute outfit that is perfect mix of plaid and lace.  I just bought this Festive Plaid Button-up Shirt and Lace Pants on Sunday and I plan on wearing them for Thanksgiving Dinner.  And don’t worry, these pants have an elastic waist so they are just right for all of the food that I plan on eating.  These pants remind me of the Reese pants from last year, but not as baggy.  They fit me perfectly and I didn’t find that they run large as others have expressed online. I’m wearing a size 6 here.  The lace pants are dressy enough to wear to holiday parties and if you pair it with the matching Lace Peplum Top it would be perfect for a more formal event.
