Kaleidoscope Print

Kaleidoscope Dress: Thrifted ($8)
Steve Madden Heels: Thrifted ($10)
Oia Jules Necklace: ℅ 9th and Elm

I wore this floral dress for one of my baby showers; what I loved about this dress was the higher neckline and kaleidoscope print paired with the black accents. It's such a vibrant dress that could be paired with simple accessories and still make a statement. I also love that it was only $8 from the thrift store! I was thinking of creating a list of my favorite thrift stores from the area I live in and featuring some of my finds from each one. Let me know if you're interested in that!

Eyelet Dress

Eyelet Dress: Thrifted
Big Star Jacket: Thrifted
Sandals: Forever 21 (online here)

I had been itching to wear this eyelet dress since I got it. When the temperatures reached the high 70's, I knew it would be the perfect outfit for a sunny day. Eyelet dresses just scream spring to me and I do love a good white dress. And how amazing are these sandals I'm wearing?!  I ordered them from Forever 21 and after them shipping me the wrong shoes, then the wrong size, I finally got my hands on them almost a month later. And I must say, they were totally worth the wait! The heel isn't too tall, so I can wear them with shorts and a slouchy t-shirt later this summer for a relaxed look. 

Thank you for reading!

Here's some more budget-friendly eyelet dresses that are perfect for spring:

Metallic Oxfords

Tank- Target
Oxfords- Thrifted ($8) (currently on sale at Target)
BLANK Leather Pants- ℅ Marshalls
Blazer- ℅ Marshalls


I found these metallic oxfords at the thrift store recently and decided I wanted to wear them so badly, I just built my entire outfit around these beauties. They're so comfy and now that it's only one month till my due date, these flat shoes are like walking on clouds. I love the laser cut accents on the side- perfect for warmer summer months! I can't wait to pair these with a lace mini or some distressed denim.
This blazer was another recent find. I love the subtle grey stripes and the fit of the blazer. It's such amazing quality, while still being budget friendly. Thank you, Marshalls! 

Hope you all are enjoying your week!

Stella & Dot Giveaway

Top: Target
Blazer: Thrifted
Jeans: ℅ Marshalls
BCBG Heels: ℅ Marshalls
Necklace & Earrings: ℅ Stella & Dot

With spring finally here, Stella & Dot has some amazing new arrivals that are perfect for jazzing up any outfit! I was practically drooling over all the spring accessories. 
Here are a few of my favorites:

Elodie Necklace

   Aviva Chandeliers                                          Frida Necklace

I know I'll be wearing more basics once the baby arrives, so this will be a great way to dress up a simple t-shirt. Pictured above I'm wearing the Somervell Necklace in gold and the Nancy Studs. Both items are such timeless pieces and I know they will get a lot of wear! One thing I especially love about the earrings is that the post isn't in the middle. I got my ears pierced at Walmart when I turned 10- needless to say, they're a bit crooked. The only earrings I can wear are ones that have the post on the bottom, so these are perfect!

Jamie (Stella & Dot Stylist) and I have collaborated to give one lucky reader a pair of the Nancy Studs! These gorgeous studs will become a wardrobe essential! They're the perfect item to add just a little glam to any outfit. Plus, the gold accents are killer!

Minty Fresh

Loft Dress- Plato's Closet ($15)
Big Star Denim Jacket-Thrifted
MIA Wedges- Marshalls
DIY Clutch

This minty drop-waist dress was the perfect remedy for facing another Monday. It isn't a maternity dress, but I added a belt to cinch the top and make it a bit more pregnancy-friendly. And throwing on a denim jacket added a little something casual to a fancier dress-making it great for everyday! 
I don't have many green items to wear for St.Patrick's Day, so I thought mint could be considered green..right? :)

Black & Denim

Blouse: Plato's Closet ($2)
Jeans: Goodwill 
Heels: Milanoo (here) ($10 off with coupon code: Milanoo)

The sun is shining and I'm drinking delicious iced (decaf) coffee as I create this post. The warm weather makes my heart so happy! Maybe because that means it's close to May..which means our little guy will be here soon. We are so excited! Dressing up is getting harder, but I'm determined to continue trying and these cute heels help.  I used a $10 off coupon so they were only $15! The bummer was that shipping was a whopping $19. Ouch! 

Also, with the weather warming up here, my allergies are killing me! Do any of you have any natural remedies? I've tried local honey, but it makes me so wheezy and I feel so much worse after eating it. Maybe I just need to tough it out with the honey, I don't know! Any advice or tips would be much appreciated :)
