YAY for the W E E K E N D ♥ I know Pom Pom Sandals have been the hottest trend to hit Instagram this summer + I may be a little late to the game but I am a firm believer in not settling till you find exactly what you are looking for…and I DID! The Pom Pom Sandals I am rocking in this post cost me less than $20 from Amazon! Seriously, I couldn’t justify spending a $100 or more for a pair of sandals that I knew in reality I wouldn’t get too much wear out of…but $20…totally worth it!!
I am kinda obsessed with these sandals because they are fun, silly + add a cute Pop Of Color to any look. When it comes to this ensemble I really wanted my shoes + accessories to make a statement. I paired my colorful shoes with a just as colorful + bold bag from Cambridge Satchel (currently on sale for under $60 + on my Poshmark here).
My off the shoulder top is from my new favorite boutique — Heavenly Couture (it was a $5 sale find) but I found some similar styles below! I paired this top with dark wash denim shorts (although you can’t really see them since the top is more like a tunic but I guess I just love longer shirts so it hides any potential camel toe haha :p)
It’s starting to feel a lot like S P R I N G! And I couldn’t be happier! Spring has always been my favorite season (whether in NY or LA) because it starts warming up so I can wear all of my favorite dresses, skirts + sandals while also not sweating in a heat wave like I do over the summer haha!
To kick off my first of many spring style posts, I teamed up with Burlington…aka the premier destination to score chic finds for less (just up my alley right?!) Burlington has up to 65% off department store prices every day! So I was beyond excited when they gave me the challenge of putting a head-to-toe spring look together for under $50…challenge accepted and challenge completed 😉
I scored both my black + white striped shift dress from Burlington as well as my nude lace up heels! Two ‘on trend’ pieces for spring that can be transitioned from work to play and beyond. What I love about a classic shift dress is that it is an easy outfit choice in the morning…just slip it on and you are ready to head out the door! Nothing beats that (especially for a gal like me who is always running late in the morning — hey Starbucks is always a priority what can I say :p)
This dress in particular I love because A) It’s only $7.99 on BurlingtonStores.com (YES it is in fact $7.99 for this gorgeous dress…how crazy is that?!) It’s the perfect piece to add to your spring rotation and I dressed it up for spring with some bright accessories!
My other Burlington find were these nude lace up sandals (similar to the ones I found in store). I mean they are great for the office, girl’s night, date night etc. Nude matches with everything, they are super comfortable and I can’t get over how great they fit (normally I struggle with heels if the arch is too high or if they are too narrow or too wide etc. Not these beauties…they are picture perfect!)
These heels cost only $17.99! How great is that? Head-To-Toe outfit completed! Bam!
I always like to add color to all of my looks, especially for spring, so I added a few of my own accessories to the look. For some neon I added my own satchel + for a P O P of blue I added one of my favorite necklaces in Cobalt and of course my mirrored aviators (a spring / summer / year roundessential for everyone…just sayin’).
And Voila!A head-to-toe spring look that’s on trend and doesn’t break the bank…easy as 1,2,3 and it’s all thanks to Burlington! Burlington has up to 65% off department store prices every day!
Since moving to LA I learned that just because the weather is warm and makes me want to wear dresses and bright colors all the time, LA natives rarely do! Isn’t it funny how NYers crave the warmth and light layers while LA natives desperately want to wear dark hues, coats and winter wear? I guess it’s like the old saying goes…you always want what you don’t have huh? 😉
I always thought wearing all black was a bit morbid but hey maybe it can be a little sexy? I am obsessed with this long sleeve criss cross top from AMI Clubwear — clearly it’s become a trend as of recent because I have been seeing tops like this all over…a few of my favorites are below!
I paired it with my favorite ‘going’ out pants…leggings haha (who said leggings can’t be sexy)! These leather leggings from Hue are great for work or play and paired with this top make for one #flawless look that’s both comfortable yet stylish!
With an all black look, the accessories really have to P O P + make a statement…these AMI Clubwear silver gladiator heels certainly do the trick! They are super comfortable (shocking I know) AND they can match with everything!! Win / Win!
Happy Humpday Loves! Sorry if I have been a little MIA…LA vibes had me relaxing and enjoying a break from my hectic schedule but I am right back at it with events, posting and outfit shoots (ugh take me back to Cali stat!). This look was shot before I flew off to Los Angeles and let me tell ya it wasn’t even warm enough there to wear this! Who would have thought that Long Island would have nicer weather than LA…apparently the term for it is ‘June Gloom’ well that it was :p
Crazy to think we are in full swing of spring yet there is still some snow on the ground near me…clearly mother nature didn’t get the memo that right now it’s supposed to be in the 50s and 60s giving me the ability to wear skirts, dresses and open toe shoes…seriously…what’s going on?! ugh!
This look is oddly enough pretty weather appropriate considering it is still a little too cool to show some skin and i am bundled up with bright neon accessories…you know because nothing rings in spring like a fluorescentyellow bag and scarf right? 😉
