After surviving Snowmageddon 2017 earlier this week, the thought of spring and warmer weather is hard to wrap my mind around. I feel like this year will be one of those years when we go straight from winter to summer with only a few weeks of spring. With that being said, spring is one of my favorite seasons, fashion wise! I love being able to branch out and shed the winter layers. Putting away the bulky sweaters and replacing them with florals and fun shades just brings such life! Spring fashion brings a great energy and excitement that I always look forward to.
Spring fashion has a few trademark looks that always seem to stick around, florals, pastels, and feminine pieces. However, each year there seems to be a little twist and update added to the current trends. For those wanting to embrace spring fashion and stay on top of trends, I decided to create a post that sums up some of the best trends to look for this season!
Top Spring Fashion Trends
I love LOVE ruffles! This love affair probably started as a child. You can ask my mother! Dresses were my go-to daily outfits, and the rufflier the better! Ruffles add such a feminine touch to any outfit. Ruffle tops are definitely in for spring and add such character to any outfit!
2. Fun Sleeves!
Fun sleeves has been a trend that has been around since fall, and it's not going anywhere! This is also a great trend that I'm in love with! Bell sleeves are just the start! This spring you'll see a ton of different tops with ALL kinds of sleeves. I love the sleeves with unique draping and accent bows. Off the shoulder tops are also sticking around this season! Pairing a top with fun sleeves with a simple pair of jeans, creates a perfect spring look!
3. White white!
Usually the spring time is all about colors! This spring is no different, color is definitely in! However, one of this season's trends is white everything! Tops, bottoms, jackets, dresses, you name it! There's a crispness that white gives to any look. As a fashionista you want to look as fresh as possibly this spring!
4. Lace-up everything!
Laces were definitely a trend this fall that is sticking around. For the spring, they are taking on a new life. A little bit more feminine and not so edgy. You'll find laces on all sorts of pieces. Anything from shoes to tops! For spring, I'm loving lace up tops with tassel details.
5. And of course floral!
You can't enjoy spring fashion without a good floral print! Florals are always in for spring. Each season they are reinvented in a new way. This season seems to be all about large bold floral prints. Steer away from subtle or smaller prints. Light and airy pastel florals are on trend. So be on the look out for fun tops to mix and match with different looks!
This week's look is inspired by some of my favorite spring fashion trends! As you might have noticed, I have a slight obsession with off-the-shoulder tops. :) So naturally I found a way to incorporate one into this outfit! I love the freshness of white for spring and the fun sleeve trend, so I love how this top from the LOFT incorporates both! Even though it IS spring, I couldn't get away from an edgy pair of black ripped jeans. ;) I like the look of incorporating a feminine top and an edgier pair of pants. I accessorized the look with suede neutral lace-up sandals and a simple gold collar necklace to accentuate the fun neckline of this top!

Even though it might still be FREEZING outside, I've got spring on my mind! We still have piles on PILES of snow melting here in NYC! (I hope that'll be the last of that white stuff!) With spring around the corner, I hope all my fashionistas are feeling equipped and in the know about some of this season's hottest trends! The great thing is, most of these trends have been around and are just slightly reinvented! So for the frugal gals out there, this can mean just piecing together items already in your closet in a new and fresh way!
Here's to hoping spring comes soon loves!
March. The time of the year when the earth is confused as to what season it is. Haha. One day it's 70 degrees, the next it's 30 degrees and snowing! With this bipolar weather comes a constant dilemma of what to wear! The weather can be so unpredictable during this time of the year and consequently our wardrobe can be rather confused.
One of the best ways to tackle being fashionable during these early months of spring is by dressing in layers! Layers, layers, layers! I am a sucker for the layered look! So dressing in the fall and spring are always fun. This post is all about how about how to master the layered look without looking frumpy or like the Michelin man. :)
How to Master the Layered Look:
1. Pick different textures!
When creating a layered look you want to created dimension with all the different pieces involved. Layering cotton over cotton over cotton, just doesn't work and the look will fall flat. When wearing multiple articles of clothing you want to create diversity in pieces that make the outfit more interesting. So incorporating a knit with cotton, flannel, jean, and silk or polyester is a definite YES!
2. Use a variety of pieces!
You don't always have to stick to a certain "genre" of clothing. Feel free to mix and match casual, dressy, and career pieces. Just like using different textures, using a variety of pieces adds interest and dimension. It also spices it up for yourself and opens up the options for layering. You can pair a work button up with a pair of leggings and an oversized sweater, or a silk blouse with a flannel and ripped jeans. Mix and match styles for the perfect look!
3. Don't bulk up.
Creating a perfect layered look can be tricky. It takes skill and thought! It seems like it would be as simple as throwing a bunch of different pieces together and walking out the door but its not! The worst outcome would be an outfit that resembles a lumpy marshmallow. Yikes. Try and be careful as to the amount and types of articles you layer. I would say 3-4 pieces max. And steer clear of sweaters on sweaters!
Before this week's outfit it had been a wild weather week! From 70 degrees all the way to 25 degrees! INSANE! The perfect layered look was great for a sunny but chilly March day. I decided to go ALL IN with mixing and matching different styles and pieces. I wanted to create a cozy look that still had a dash of edge and spunk. I decided to start with a long sleeve ruffle blouse that I would normally wear with trousers to work and then layer on a jean shirt, topped with an oversized sweater. I paired these tops with ripped jeans and some heeled suede, gold buckle booties that I got for a great price at Marshall's. For accessories, I added a wool brim hat for a touch of warmth and sparkly tassel pendant. Although it was a bit chilly, these stylish layers kept me cozy and comfortable! Plus, I got SO many compliments on the outfit throughout the day!

Hope you feel equipped with some helpful tips to successfully layer this winter-spring season! You really can't got wrong, the more eclectic and mix matched the better!
Here's to hoping for more spring weather!
Credit cards, credit cards, credit cards! Many of you probably have a love-hate relationship with them! Whatever your opinion is, you certainly can't live without one. I've had quite a journey to come to a place where I don't think credit cards are of the devil. Haha.
As a frugal girl, I used to be adamantly against them, refusing to open one, despite all the enticing offers and constant junk mail. I didn't see the necessity of one, and simply thought it was a cruel way for companies to profit off your spending. After graduating college, I soon realized the value and importance of building credit and had to take the dive into applying for my first credit card. I ended up just getting a basic credit card that I would just pay off at the end of every month. It was a simple, quick way to build credit. Then I ventured into the world of rewards credit cards! As a penny pincher, the idea of getting rewarded monetarily for doing regular spending is a no brainer! There are so many great rewards cards out there, but I wanted to focus on retail store cards for this week's post for all the fashionistas and shopaholics out there!
We've all been at the checkout of our favorite store when they ask the age-old question, "Would you like to open a store credit card today?"
And I’m here to tell you that your answer should be YES! (Well, under certain conditions. Haha) I hope to give you some helpful pointers on how to decide on a worthwhile store credit card and how it can actually save you BIG bucks!
Tips on How to Decide on the Right Store Credit Card for You:
1. First, you should start by thinking of where you shop the most and spend the most money. This will help you get the most bang for your buck! Yeah, you might have heard that you can save an extra percent off your purchase today, but how often will you shop at the store? Even though it ends up saving you a little bit of cash in the moment, it’s not worth bringing your credit score down a few points with a new credit card application.
2. Do your research! The talking points that the sales clerks give you at the check out are only the highlights of the credit card perks. You want to be well informed about the pros and cons before taking the plunge. Is there a yearly fee? What is interest rate? Does the card operate on a points system or a cash rewards system? There’s a lot to think about before deciding on the right store credit card for you.
3. Pick the one that provides the right savings for you! Some store credit cards offer instant savings, like the Target credit card, while others offer store gift cards as a reward. Think about what will give you the biggest reward.
So for my store credit card of choice.... After much avoidance, I finally caved and got a Banana Republic credit card. Not only did I frequently get hassled at the register, but I also had heard amazing things from friends that were big fans of the card. I decided on this card because Banana is one of the stores I shop at the most! I also love how their card also applies to Gap and Old Navy. They have a great rewards system that entails store gift cards, which I can always find a need to use! ;) Their rewards are earned by points, and they frequently have great points promotions. They just had a month where you earned 3x the points on purchases outside of their stores! You also always get rewarded with an instant extra discount when making purchases within the store, which is a great perk!
So it may sound counterintuitive, but investing in a store credit card of your choice can actually save you money! If you exercise self control and are religious about paying it off every month, it can be a great way to add a little extra cash to your wallet.
Now a little bit about my outfit! I wanted to feature an outfit that is primarily composed of items from Banana Republic. This week's look is a business casual office look! Dressing for work can get so mundane. Nothing like creating a new outfit or making a new purchase to spice things up! I was so excited when I snagged this fun silk wrap dress at the extra 60% off sale at Banana Republic this holiday season for $14! I decided to add some simple pops of pizazz with a gold shimmer kitten heel, a simple gold knot bangle, and jewel stud earrings. I love sticking with simple color palettes but then adding pops of color through accessories!
Black Satin Pleated Dress - $14 Banana Republic (originally $148, bought on sale with an extra 60% off!)
Gold Sam Edelman Kitten Heels- $17 Marshall's (originally $120)
Jewel Cluster Earrings- $9 Banana Republic (originally $38, bought on sale with an extra 60% off!)
Gold Knot Bracelet- $1.99 Banana Republic (originally $48, bought on sale with an extra 60% off!)
So hopefully I've encouraged you to take a second thought next time you're at the register and get asked the age-old question about opening a store credit card! If you choose wisely it will end up being rewarding and saving you cash in the long run!
Many thanks to all who participated in the Winter Frugal Find Challenge! It was so fun hearing from all you frugal fashionistas out there about the amazing deals you've been scoring lately! Nothing better than the high of scoring the deal of a century. :)
With that being said, it's time to announce the winner of the challenge! Drumroll...
Kori blew me away with her finds! She recently scored an adorable pair of floral heels from T.J.Maxx for $3! Which I was super impressed by. I've gotten tops there for $3, but never a pair of shoes! AND she recently picked up a pair of 7 For All Mankind jeans at a thrift store for $4! Those retail for around $200! You go Kori! Way to be a Frugal Fashionista!
I thought it would be fun if Kori did a mini guest post and gave us a few of her best pointers on how to be fashionably frugal. Here are some of her best tips!
1. Shop at Thrift Stores -
Sometimes you have to DIG in order to find the best items at a Thrift store, it's almost like a treasure chest! One of my favorite finds at a thrift store recently was a Vineyard Vines Shep Pullover- for only $20!
2. Always check the back of stores for clearance racks -
Stores always keep their sale and clearance racks in the back of the store! Once I found a pair of Flying Monkey jeans for only $12! 🙊
3. For Designer Clothes, Shoes, and Purses, always check ThredUp or Poshmark -
ThredUp is quickly becoming one of my favorite places to online shop! I just got a pair of 7FAMK jeans for $8!
4. Ross, TJMaxx, and Marshalls -
These three stores are basically the only retail stores I shop at! I always find such cute clothes, at such great prices! I recently got a dress at Ross for $9.99, and a pair of heels at T.J.Maxx for $3!
5. Upscale Resale Stores(Plato's Closet, Clothes Mentor, Uptown Cheapskate) - Upscale resale stores are my favorite to shop at! The atmosphere is always so wonderful! The best part is that everything they sell is always in like new condition, under two years old, and name brand! I once saw a pair of TORY BURCH sandals for $15! 😱sadly they weren't my size!
Love all the tips Kori! A girl after my own heart! Haha
Thanks SO much everyone for participating! It was so fun hearing from all of you on the great deals you've been scoring!
Keep being frugal!
February always seems like such a drag. Anyone else agree?! The blustery weather and the fact that you haven't seen grass in awhile can make a girl go crazy! And according to Mr. Punxsutawney Phil, there is going to be more winter then I'd like!... Here's to hoping he's wrong. Sooooooo as a bit of a pick me up, I've decided to do another Frugal Find Challenge!
Being cooped up in the winter usually leads me to being entertained by LOTS of unnecessary online shopping and of course shopping in stores. Oh gosh, who am I kidding?! I always find an occasion to shop! I love a good find and know many of you do as well! I've gotten some amazing deals in these recent winter months that I am going to share a little bit later.
Hopefully, you've been able to apply some of my Fashionably Frugal tips to make recent shopping trips a success! I love hearing from readers about amazing steals they've scored, so here's your chance to shine!
I'm giving away a $50 gift card to my fav T.J.Maxx & Marshall's, to one lucky fashionista!

Oh! And did I mention, the winner gets a $50 T.J.Maxx/Marshall's gift card!
Now to tell you about my recent haul at Marshall's!... Unfortunately (or fortunately, whatever way you look at it haha) a brand new Marshall's just opened on the corner of my block! It's VERY dangerous. Conveniently located on my walk to the gym, lol. The other morning I stopped by looking for a jacket and I left with wayyyyy more than a jacket. It always works that way, doesn't it?! I needed a new light weight jacket for a recent ski trip, so I was SO happy to find a lot of winter items on clearance! When I walked in there were tables of clearance boots and racks of winter clothing, so stuffed you could barely walk in between the aisles! There were so many great deals, but I had to limit myself to the best bargains. I ended up finding a VIneyard Vines light weight down jacket for $20! I literally praised Jesus when I laid eyes on it! I also ended up getting a silk lace tank for $4, a lace up dress for $6, Sam Edelman sparkly kitten heels for $17, and another pair of Franco Sarto suede over the knee boots for $30! All for around $80! Can't beat that! Especially when the Vineyard Vines coat is normally retailed at $300!
This challenge is inspired by this amazing find! Now is the best time to shop winter sales! This proves you don't have to wait till the off season to get the best prices!
Frugal Tip: Shop during the ALMOST off season to get the best deals!
May the sales be ever in your favor!
With Valentine’s Day around the corner, I know there are date nights galore being planned. Whether you’re single and ready to mingle or happily in a relationship, I know every fashionista comes to the dilemma of what to wear on date night! Nothing worse than standing in front of your closet overwhelmed and thinking “I have nothing to wear!” while your closet is teeming with clothes.
This week’s post will hopefully give you some creative outfit ideas to wear on any date night occasion, along with encouragement that many of these pieces may already be in your closet! Sometimes it’s not about finding a new outfit, but creating a killer outfit out of items that you already have. Refuse the impulse to go out to the store and buy something new and see what may already lie within your closet.
Great Date Night Looks for Any Occasion:
The casual date night:
If you’re going on a simple date to a casual restaurant, the movies, or local bar, you’re going to want to dress it down. This doesn’t mean you have to look like a frump though! Resist the yoga pants, please! A perfect outfit for this occasion could include, a simple sweater or fun blouse with ripped jeans and booties or flats. Dress comfortably and casually, but don’t be afraid to throw some style in there! Accessories can be minimal, like a simple long pendant.
The dinner date night:
For a date night that is a little more on the fancier side, you may want to dress it up a bit. In my book, there’s nothing worse than being underdressed! You’ll want an outfit that’s appropriate but not too fancy. Some ideas for an occasion such as this would be: a tunic and heeled booties, an off the shoulder top and black jeans, or a shift dress with a statement necklace. You can definitely have a little bit more fun with accessories. Depending on your outfit choice, a statement necklace, bold earrings, and stackable bangles would be perfect! Mix and matching a more formal piece, with a more casual piece makes for a great outfit, like jeans and a silk blouse.
The extravagant date night:
Now dates like these are super fun for all the fashionistas of the world! It’s a chance to dress up and step out of our ordinary wardrobe. This is a time to dress to impress and spice things up! Wearing a dress is a must for any extravagant occasion. A fun cocktail or evening dress, paired with the perfect accessories, and a killer shoe will do! Dresses with unique fabrics, necklines, or shilouettes are great! You’ll want something that is different and stands out. You may have a dress in your closet already that fits this occasion, possibly from a wedding or special event. Reinvent it with some different accessories and you’re good to go!
No matter what kind of date you have planned for Valentine’s day (or Galentine’s day for all the single ladies!) you don’t have to feel stuck in a wardrobe funk! I hope you’ve left with some helpful ideas and inspiration!
Frugal Tip: Resist the urge to buy something new for a special occasion, and just reinvent what’s already in your closet!
This week's look is an outfit designed for a more extravagent date night! One where it's perfectly ok to throw on some heels and get a little fancy. The lace shift dress is definitely the focal point of the look! Since it is Valentine's day, I couldn't say no to a little red. Haha. I paired it with a nude heel to make the red pop, along with a sparkly collar necklace and earrings. I have to add, the dress was such a steal! Got it online at the LOFT during one of their special seasonal sales a few weeks back, for only $15, originally $118!
Lace Shift Dress - $15 The Loft (originally $118)
BCBG Nude Peep-toe Heels- $18 T.J. Maxx
Crystal Bib Necklace - $14.95 Forever 21
Hope you gals have the BEST Valentine's Day ever! Wether you're single or taken, remember this holiday is all about LOVE! So celebrate the love you are so blessed to have in your life, wether that be with friends, family, or loved ones!
Happy Frugal Friday ya’ll! I think it’s totally acceptable to actually use the word ya’ll since this week’s post is all about my recent trip to Austin, Texas! This post is going to be a little different, a little less about the practical side of being fashionably frugal and a bigger glimpse into my life! I’m going to share a bit of the details of my fun filled girls' weekend, hopefully inspiring you to make a trip out to Austin soon!
I’m always looking for new places to travel to and explore, and with MLK Day weekend in the near future, I knew it would be a great time to pack my bags and head out on an adventure! My friend Allie and I decided to have a girl’s weekend and through some ideas out there, like Denver and Florida, but finally decided on Austin. Neither of us had been before and had only heard great things! So we thought, why not!
A trip to the South in January is always a great idea; it means warmer temps and no outerwear. But the main reason we chose Austin was because of its unique vibes. We’d heard about the hipster, earthy culture, and of course its unique food! And let me tell you the food did not disappoint! We may have eaten a wee bit too much. So I wanted to some up some highlights from our trip! We did A LOT of research before going, so hopefully you can as a guide for your future trips to Austin!
I got in pretty late on Friday night, but we still wanted to maximize our time and hit the town! I was a bit hungry and decided to grab a quick bite at Voodoo donuts! These donuts were seriously impressive and supper creative. They left me with just the right sugar high to get through the night. We ended up going out on Rainey St., which ended up being my favorite place in the entire city! Rainey St. is an old historic part of Austin, where in recent years they have converted small old homes into several bars and restaurants. And let me tell you, they are all ADORABLE! Each one has their own unique vibe. Just on Rainey St. you can find a bar, like Blackheart, that plays live music, a bar that plays throw back 90s tunes, and a bar that is made entirely out of shipping containers!
The first night, we ended up parking it at a place called Bungalow. We sat outside at a picnic table, under some twinkle lights and it was a perfect first night in Austin. All of the bars have an open-air vibe, with retractable walls and huge outdoor areas. Some with hammocks and fire pits! We loved Rainey St. so much we went back Saturday AND Sunday night!
We didn’t waste much time and woke up bright and early. Brunch was a must to start the day. After much research, we decided to go to South Congress Café, in the neighborhood called South Congress, or SoCo. (As the locals say.) The food was delicious, and we both opted for a typical Tex-Mex breakfast dish, called Migas. Of course no brunch is complete without mimosas! South Congress Café had a pretty good deal where you could get a bottle of champagne to split with your choice of juice mixers. We definitely started the morning off right!
Afterwards we walked around South Congress Ave. and explored the unique boutiques and shops! We naturally had to make a stop at Jo’s Coffee shop for a stop in front of the “I love you so much mural”. I love the completely outdoor vibe of Jo’s. Certainly can’t find that in NYC! We then headed to South 1st St. to make a stop at the typical touristy “Welcome to Austin” mural. Definitely a great photo op! The murals all over town are really cool. We enjoyed seeking them out and finding out the stories behind some of them.
We put in A LOT of steps in walking around South Congress, but that didn’t stop us! We went back to the hotel and grabbed some bike rentals! We had heard walking, biking, paddle boarding, and kayaking on Lady Bird Lake was a must, so we decided to bike the trail around the lake. It was beautiful! Even during Austin’s “fall” the foliage and views were gorgeous! We made a pit stop at Barton Springs and went to the natural pool, which was pretty cool. It’s the same temperature all year round! They even had lifeguards on duty. On our way around Lady Bird Lake we stopped at the first ever Whole Foods, to say it’s the mother ship would be an understatement. It’s huge! We ended our bike ride by going up the “drag” or Guadalupe St. by the University. We decided to stop at the original Torchy’s Tacos for some much deserved tacos. They were delicious and the queso was amazing!
After resting a bit, we ended the evening with some classic BBQ. We had heard that Franklin’s was the best but not worth the wait. So we decided to go to Cooper’s, which was down the street from our hotel and it did not disappoint! The pork loin and blackberry cobbler are to die for!
We ended the night with another trip to Rainey St. and a late night stop to their food truck court for a midnight snack.
We once again woke up early once again. :) Our hotel was close to the Wanderlust yoga studio, so we decided to stop at their Blender & Bowls shop. I did the Wanderlust triathlon this fall and love their fun take on yoga. We got an acai bowls and they were sooooo good! Fresh berries and all!
San Antonio is less than an hour and a half away from Austin, so we decided to make a day trip out there. We quickly rented a car and hit the road. The first thing we did when we arrived was visit the Alamo. Having only seen it in pictures, it was much grander than I had imagined! It was beautiful! I loved walking around the mission; it was like a beautiful garden, complete with fountains and towering palm trees.
Afterwards, we hit up the River Walk. Pictures can’t also do this place justice! It is much longer than I had imagined. We walked down several parts of the canal to kind of scope out the scene. We were looking for a cute place with colorful umbrellas to grab lunch at along the river. It was a little too touristy for our liking, but we ended up deciding on a delicious place called Boudro's. The fresh table side guac and frozen prickly pear cactus were so perfect to enjoy under the sun next to the river. Before heading back we wanted to grab desert at the Guenther House, but it was closed. I so wish we could have gone! Still not having satisfied our sweet tooth we hit up Quack’s on 43rd St. for some cupcakes on our way home, which are supposed to be the best in the city. I got a raspberry and champagne cupcake, complete with glitter and pearls on the icing! Every girlie girls perfect cupcake!
It ended up being a rainy evening so we ended it with a necessary stop to a local resale shop in Austin, Buffalo Exchange. Whenever I go on trips I love to shop at any resale shops they have in the area.
With not much time to spend in Austin before departing, we knew we had to chose our last meal wisely. After once again doing much research, and thanks to a couple of locals recommendations, we decided on Kerby Lane Café. It’s a popular brunch spot in the city that’s open 24 hours! We decided to go to the original one that is actually inside a house! I loved the quaint, homey vibes. Everything on the menu sounded delicious, so it was hard to choose! I told my friend I was afraid of having orderer’s remorse. Anyone else ever feel that way? Haha. We both ended up getting the Eggs Francisco which was TOO good. They mix the hollandaise sauce with queso and it is HEAVENLY! Kerby Lane is known for their pancakes, so we each got one as a side. They have everything from whole-wheat apple cinnamon roll swirl pancakes to peanut butter-chocolate chip and nutella pancakes. To say we enjoyed our last meal would be an understatement. We were glad we wore our travel yoga pants that morning. Haha
To sum it up….
