Today I am thankful to have a day off. This weekend was one of those weekends where you NEED more than two days.

Comes Back to Me, Burning Red

It’s finally February! Thank god January is over–it seems like it lasts longer every year. I’ve been super in the Valentine’s Day mood (probably because all the bloggers I follow have been posting the CUTEST Vday posts), so I’m posting this look along with some of my top VDay sweater pics!

So, I’m super upset that I am having such a difficult time finding a similar sweater to this to link you guys to. I found this at the Geneva Commons H&M yesterday for only $6.99 and HAD to snag it as a perfect Valentine’s Day score!

It’s so soft and has this pearl beading detail all over the front and around the sleeves. I’m wearing a Medium because I like my sweaters BIG and BAGGY. Check your local H&M clearance racks for this one!

If you’re more of a pink girl – SHEIN has a pink version of this on sale for $17.00 right now but it’s only in-stock in a small!

Also – if you follow a lot of fashion and style bloggers you have probably noticed them posting this “heart on my sleeve” expensive sweatshirt from Vici Dolls, and it’s always sold out. You can find so many super cute VDay sweaters that look just like the Vici Dolls ones at Shein for like half the price!

This is similar to the “Heart on my sleeve” sweatshirt but it’s only $17.00.

This cute heart-patterned knit is currently $25.00 and only available in a Medium, but I think it’s a cuter version of the sold-out “heartthrob knit top” from Vici Dolls, for $38.00.

Aaaand one more beaded one because I love Shein and they have this one for $28.00 and it’s a one size only, so if you’re tiny like me this will be a baggy one (kinda like the one I’m wearing in my shoot!)

Thrifty Thursday – Shop the Gram!

Should I make #thriftythursday a thing? Idk, you let me know!

I feel like I have been scoring major deals left and right, and I have a few for ya in today’s post! I posted this pullover before in a flatlay on Insta, and I was waiting for my Gucci belt to come in to style it how I had envisioned. This pullover is actually a dupe for the Free People “Found my Friend” sweater – the OG one is 40% off right now at Nordstrom (only cream and red left), but this dupe is only $19.99 on PRIME and is SO SOFT. Not to mention, it comes in six colors!

I styled it with my aerie bralette (similar one on sale here) and my new fav layered necklace from PRIME for only $5.99.

 

Obviously, the Gucci belt is going to run you a few hundred, or you can find some dupes on amazon. Jeans are old American Eagle BUT they are having a major sale right now and a bunch of their jeans (and other apparel) are 50% off. Score a similar pair to mine for only $30 here!

LAST BUT NOT LEAST, are these insta-famous leopard slides from Target.

sept1

Y’all, I found these in the clearance shoe aisle of my local Target for only $7.48. I would def hurry in and check the summer clearance shoes and score these before they’re gone! While you’re there, check out the cute fall decor in the notorious dollar section – I went a little crazy in there myself.

Shop the Gram – Pullover Dupe!

pullover dupe4

Everyone knows that one girl who responds to an outfit compliment by saying “Thanks!!! It was only $15!!!” Or “I got it at TJ Maxx!!”

That’s me. That is me every day. I LOVE finding bargains and sharing them with people. SO, here I am, doing just that! I’ve been wanting to order the instagram-famous A&F fleece pullover for a long time now, but never could follow through with paying $68 for it. I came across this dupe on Amazon Prime for only $24 so I bought it to see if it came close. And, truth be told, I am beyond pleased.

This pullover is SO SOFT. I was worried about it being poor quality, as you sometimes get with dupes. However, the material is soft and warm, and actually blocks a lot of wind, so it’s not thin and cheap. Peep this close-up:

This dupe is totally worth the buy. And, it comes in other colors!

Cozy Tuesday – Shop the Gram!

This sweater is such a cozy dupe for the FP one from Nordstrom!

The original runs $78.00 BUT it’s 40% off right now at $46.80!

This dupe is on prime for only $18.99 and it comes in 6 colors! It’s a teeny bit different material wise but is SO soft and worth the saved dollas, imo.

I am currently reading Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis and it is life-changing! Book review to come!

Chambray for days…

The other day, I walked outside and felt a brisk breeze while Chase rushed to pee on the nearest bush. Could it be…? Is that a FALL BREEZE COMING MY WAY??? Okay, maybe I’m getting a little too excited because fall is my absolute favorite season (I loved fall before it was basic). BUT, we are now in that awkward transitional August period where we feel fall coming, and it feels like fall in the morning, but feels like 100 degrees in the afternoon. We want to pull our fall wardrobes out (especially everyone going back to school) but, it’s a little premature unless we want to sweat a lot. Which, sometimes, the outfit is too good, you just gotta sweat.

transitional4

OR, you can rock some cute transitional outfits, that bring out your fall style, but allow you to adjust when you start breathin a little heavy and doing the “pit checks.”

transitional2

Chambray can be worn a million different ways during this transitional period, and during fall. So, it’s definitely a wardrobe staple if you don’t have a chambray top yet. Here’s just one (of many!!!) looks I wanted to share that’s perfect for this awkward weather time…

transitional6

I’m wearing simple, light, striped tank top shift dress I scored at TJ Maxx for, like, $10, with my chambray button-up as a light “jacket.” (This dress did not come tied, I did it myself – that’s what the kids are doing these days).

transitional3

Paired with a cute, simple pair of light-colored sneaks and a light-toned tote, the summer vibe is still there, BUT there’s definitely a hint of fall going on…

transitional5

(This is what I look like all the time in real life^^^ – RBF while sipping iced coffee).

The best part of this outfit is, when it gets too hot, just whip off the chambray and tie it around your hips!
