DUPE CHLOE ESPADRILLES #TUESDAYSHOESDAY

DUPE CHLOE WEDGES

Happy Tuesday Shoesday Fashionistas!! Today I wanted to talk about being smart about our purchases. I am a huge fan of dupes and shopping around. They say that someone needs to see something three times and love it before purchasing. I would have to agree, but I also think it’s best to shop around and find the item you are searching for in three different places before purchasing. This way you are knowing if you are getting the best deal. Whenever I link items on the blog, you can be assured you are getting the best deal because I always search before linking products here. Sometimes I even link it from multiple sites. I also try to always link a dupe for any higher priced items that I have purchased. My favorite purchase recently has been this dupe for Chloe espadrilles.

I am also obsessed with a great pair of fitting denim and these J Brand jeans are my go to pair. I have linked some pairs of J Brand on sale at Nordstrom. I normally buy higher priced brand jeans because they really last and fit your body well. With the right pair of jeans you can take on the world right??

When it comes to trendy tops, I like to shop at Forever 21. This peasant blouse I got for less than $20. It’s sold out now, but I linked some similar options all less than $23. You can never go wrong with a white top because its neutral and can be worn with pretty much any bottoms.

My sunglasses are everywhere right now haha. I originally purchased my pair from Goodnight Macaroon. However, there are companies selling them for a much better price, so I linked those ones for you instead!

Leopard is totally a neutral and is a pattern that I feel like can add that perfect pop, or be paired with other patterns. I got this awesome purse by Vince Camuto during last year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but I linked some awesome bags under $50.

I have a few different designer inspired pieces for you within different price ranges and from three different brands. The dupe pair that I have are by Steve Madden and I purchased them at DSW for just under $60 which is about 10% of the cost of Chloe’s. They are even in Rose Gold now!!! I want those ones so bad lol. JustFab makes an awesome pair too called the Macey Wedge, which my friend Laila has and you can see those on her post here. Marc Fisher makes a nice pair too but those are $100 more than the Steve Madden ones, so it just depends on your budget.

I hope you enjoyed this style tip for fashion & finance! Cheers to having an awesome week.

WORKWEAR WEDNESDAY: STRIPES + PLEATS

WORKWEAR WEDNESDAY: STRIPES + PLEATS

I hope everyone isn’t having too hard of a day back at the office after our holiday! I work a 9-5 in addition to blogging and sometimes I feel like its hard to be able to dress fashionably at the office, still have it be affordable, and translate into an outfit for an evening out. I wanted to share this combination of stripes and pleats from Romwe that is so affordable and stylish. This look will have you office ready and in one quick item change, you can take it from work to drinks.

WORKWEAR WEDNESDAY

I was still feeling the 4th of July vibes, so I thought the Navy stripe top would pair wonderfully with these white pleated pants. Pleated culottes are very on trend right now, but as with most trendy pieces I purchase, I don’t want to spend much because you don’t know how long it will be in style. These pants were only $18.99 and the one shoulder striped top was under $20! How often do you find a chic outfit that can be worn to work and after for under $40!! I am so happy that I can even shop for my office wardrobe at Romwe. Now one word of warning…the fabric on these pieces are a bit sheer hence why I paired the blazer over the top for the office, and I wear a slip under the pants, which I linked below.

AT THE OFFICE

Pair the striped top and pleated pants with a blazer to cover up that shoulder. Having your hair up gives it a more professional look and a nude lip keeps things subtle for the office. I use a large purse at the office because I normally have a lot of things to tote around including my lunch.

TRANSITION TO EVENING OUT

All you need to do is whip off that blazer, let down your hair, take your clutch out of your tote and throw on a red lip. Now you are ready for a date, drinks with your girls, or a night out on the town! How simple was that??

FLAMINGO ROMPER – BLOGHER17 ORLANDO

FLAMINGO ROMPER BLOGHER17

Happy Friday Fashionistas!! I wore this adorable flamingo romper to my first blogger conference last weekend. I wanted to share not only the details of this romper, which is under $20, but also everything I did and learned at BlogHer17!

OOTD FLAMINGO ROMPER

There are so many fun details on this romper and it totally matched the BlogHer theme of flamingos and pineapples. If you know anything about me, then you know that flamingos are my jam!! Give me anything with flamingos all over them and that’s winning in my book! It was such a hot day here in sunny Florida, having shorts and short sleeves really saved the day!! I paired a blush lace bralette under it as well because I don’t know about you, but I always feel more secure when wearing a bra. My Seven Dial wedges that are blush and rose gold were comfortable for walking around the conference and matched the flamingos on the romper perfectly! I linked a similar pair since mine are no longer available.

BLOGHER17 AT A GLANCE

There were many different speakers at this year’s conference including Chelsea Clinton and Serena Williams. I’m sorry, but I was so distracted by everything going on at the conference (squirrel) that I don’t remember what they talked about during the Keynotes. I feel like it was very female oriented but not necessarily very tutorial oriented, so I hope I get more tips and tricks taught at the next one!

The photo booth wall was amazing and I loved the flamingos and pineapples everywhere on the decor. Spending time with my *Hermes Crew* (Laila’s Little Finds, Metanoia Living, Kreadiv Misfit, and Lucielle Salomon) was THE BEST part of the conference!! We slept 5 to a room in an awesome Delta Hotel by Marriott, since it was much less expensive and less crowded than the hotel the conference was held in. Make sure you go to a conference with the women you love and want to spend time with that way even if it just ends up being a girls trip, you will have tons of fun.

Thank you Fiorella @metanoialiving for the Hotel hookup!!

The break out session that I really learned a lot from was one on SEO by Chloe and Stephan Spencer a father/daughter duo. They gave so much detailed advice and was the best hour and a half I spent learning while at the conference. They also had an entire expo room filled with different brands that we could go learn about and make connections with. They didn’t have any brands that I felt really connected the fashion aspect of my blog, but there were a lot of great companies that I know you, my readers, would want to learn more about! It was a well rounded conference and they tried to cater to all different types of bloggers.

One of the coolest evening activities was that a group of us were able to attend an early screening of “Girls Trip” starring Regina Hall, Jada Pinkett Smith, Tiffany Haddish, and Queen Latifah. It was so hilarious and I thought I was going to fall over from laughing so hard. It was filmed in New Orleans which was pretty cool, since I just visited there recently. You NEED to go see it when it comes out in theaters July 21st.
