The Perfect Spring Top For Under $23...

6:05:00 PM

blue/white striped babydoll top with floral appliquΓ© {under $23!} also comes in white for just $20 || white jeans (similar pair here) || similar nude heels || bamboo wood bag {just $70!} || similar sunnies

I've been bit by the spring bug and I can't help but get my hands on some cute spring finds! I know, I know, it's not even spring yet --- but trust me when I say that this baby doll top is something you want to snag...and fast! It completely sold out last year, and now it's back and in stock in all sizes! It really is the perfect spring top because of the style and color --- it features a gorgeous floral appliquΓ© on the front and around the arms and has a baby doll fit. It's cute when it's simply paired with white jeans and nude heels, or you can swap out the jeans for denim cut off shorts and summer time espadrilles! The two ways to style it are completely different and great for summer too! This top also comes in plain white (and for just $20 too!). I also think this and this top are very similar, but features it's own character and personality!

4 Cute Outfits To Wear On Vacation...

8:14:00 AM
Happy Friday loves! 
I have a few trips coming up in the next couple of months, and let me tell ya, vacation time has been on my mind! I've been truly inspired by cute and affordable vacay wear, and today I wanted to share with you 4 outfits to wear while on vacation! Each outfit caters to a different time or event during your vacationing, from: days out by the pool, strolling around town, going out for dinner, or grabbing some ice cream! I love getting to take advantage of dressing up while being on a trip and being in my element!

If you're going some where sunny with a lot of palm trees, I highly suggest this palm print maxi dress for your evenings out to dinner! It's under $70 and features a cut out mid section with a tie front detail, giving it the illusion of a trendy two piece set! I promise you won't blend in ;)

I can already see myself wearing this while venturing out to a a town and country I've never been before *hint, hint*! It's going to be very sunny with turquoise waters, and pathways paved with large stone and white buildings! I plan on wearing something simple to wear while exploring a new area and soaking up the culture!

If you're planning a fun beach vacay nearby or further out, I promise this outfit will fit in no matter where you go! I was kind of inspired by this outfit when I visited Charleston, SC and Folly Beach last year with my husband.

And don't forget the swimsuit! I'm certainly crushing on this light blue off the shoulder swimsuit for summer! I love that it also has a tiered ruffle along the neckline, and it does have straps in the back for support.

Why I Started My Blog +The $27 Embroidered Top...

9:29:00 AM

embroidered bell sleeve top -- on sale for $27!!! (short sleeve version HERE) || free people busted knee dark wash jeans (light wash HERE) || peep toe booties (affordable version under $60 HERE) || small coin necklace || gold hoop earrings || try THIS bag

Happy Friday loves! I'm going to talk just a small amount about today's outfit, because I really want ya'll to know why I started blogging and to share a little bit about myself (you can read more below). But for today's look, I'm sharing this adorable embroidered bell sleeve top -- it even has the cutest bow details on the sleeves! Best's been marked down to only $27! I was surprised myself and had to let you guys in on the details! I also want to mention that my jeans now come in a lighter wash (perfect for spring) and I'm telling you...these are sooooo much better than the Levi's brand! They're also under $80 and such great quality!

Why I Started Blogging:

A couple days a go, on my Instagram stories, I shared with you a comment from a follower that wanted to thank me for sharing affordable pieces rather than the $$$ more pricier ones they see from others. That then prompted me to share why I started my blog -- to help find those stylish and affordable items without the hassle.  I know, as a wife and a mom, we've had to be on a budget...and being a fashion blogger at that, yeah, it was certainly tough and can get a little tricky; but I've always used my resources to find cute and stylish pieces that are of good quality and budget friendly! I try my hardest to find things that may closely resemble the real deal, but sometimes you come across things that may be a "great deal", but the quality is a big thumbs down -- I don't want to do that to you guys! Anyway, what that follower said really hit home and reminded me why I started doing this in the first place! I've never thought of myself as the "super-casual-sneaker-wearing" kind of mom or the "overly-dressed-always-in-heels" kind of mom. I'm sort of in the middle and sometimes my style can change based on my mood. And with having our daughter so young, I didn't feel like I could fit either or. I mean, I was barely 20 years old, I was still figuring myself out (and still doing that, haha)! But, I needed to find my own place, with my own rules, and at an affordable cost -- and that's where my blog came in to play! It was my outlet to share my style! I've been blogging a good 4 years now, and it's been both an overwhelming and humbling experience. I can't tell you how much this rollercoaster has taught me and how it's helped me to want to help others! I LOVE when you guys ask me questions or for advice! Seriously! I can't thank ya'll enough for all the love and support you have shown me throughout this crazy journey! I'll continue to strive to share things that I know everyone can afford and can enjoy! Thank you again!

How To Build A Prosecco Bar Cart...

10:17:00 AM

Hello everyone, and happy Wednesday! Today I wanted to share with you how I decorated my bar cart for our Housewarming/Super Bowl Party. I'm definitely one that likes fruity cocktails so I thought it would be fun to create a bar cart that caters to many flavors: blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, and of course, strawberries! This whole 'bar cart thing' is definitely new to me, and I wanted this to be easy and simple to create with a little bit of sparkle, but also with a lot of color! I strung a few fairy lights around the top of the cart and chalkboard sign to brighten it up more, and it certainly did the trick! The cart really was a hit, and everyone who 'Pimp'd' their Prosecco loved the concept of building their own drink to their specific standards! It even makes it so much more fun with these adorable gold stripe straws too, hehe!

How To Build A 'Pimp Your Prosecco' Bar Cart:
-Get 3 or more juices, or puree's, to give people options (I know not everyone likes the same kind of fruit, so it's always good to have different kinds to fit your party's taste).
-Use pretty decanters or swing top bottles to easily display the juices.
-Get 3 or more different kinds of fruit to sprinkle into the glasses!
-Break out your pretty champagne flutes! (If you have a large party, you can easily find simple, or glittery, champagne flutes HERE that are reusable through out the evening).
-Decorate the flutes with fun patterned straws!
-Use a chalkboard sign to show your guests what they can do with their Prosecco drinks!
-String some fairy lights to brighten the display!
-Finally, pop the bubbly and start creating!
