Looks for Less: Polka Dots!

Hello my dear readers! So, I’m not sure if y’all knew this, but I kind of have a thing for polka dots. 🙂 I was in Madewell today and tried on an adorable chambray polka dot shirt and while it wasn’t outrageously expensive, I wanted something a bit cheaper. And I thought I’d show you lovelies some ways to incorporate polka dots into your wardrobe in a super cheap way!

Madewell Polka Dot Chambray vs. Old Navy Polka Dot Chambray (oh and it’s on sale for $15 now!)
(this Forever 21 polka dot sweater is also really cute as is this Neon Version)
J.Crew Polka Dot Buttoned Down vs. Mint Button Down from Target 
(can’t find it online, but check your local store or check out the Factory J.Crew Polka Dot Popover I’m in love with)

Spring Florals

Work is starting to become a bit more overwhelming so I’ve been coming home pretty drained but I know beginnings can be rough so I’m still working on settling in! Anyway, enough about that and onto a conversation a  bit more fun:) Florals! So unless if you’ve been living in a cave, you’ve probably noticed how bold floral prints are being shown everywhere for Spring! For those of you that want to do it in small doses, a pair of floral flats or a floral print bag might be the perfect way to incorporate florals into your Spring wardrobe. If you’re daring, try mixing prints-florals and stripes are an example of a fun print mix! How do you feel about floral or prints in general?

Lace Party Dress and Fun Hair!

I had a friend’s wedding recently and debated wearing heels for about….a minute. And then I decided I wanted to be able to really dance (ok, I don’t dance but still) so I chose a pair of pointy sparkly flats instead. And I got this dress on sale for $40 from $178 which felt soooo good! 😉
My  darling friend and hair stylist Sorah Yaffa (click her name for more info) decided on doing a fun braided twist with soft waves. What do you all think?
Oh, and please excuse the goofy smile in the second pic.

Dress: Anthropologie (sale, sold out)
