I’m not one to get overly excited over trendy hair cuts because I’m pretty committed to my long layered hair. However, I’m all about fun seasonal hair styles and I’m totally loving the fact that the center part is back! I’m a HUGE fan of a sleek center part but I gave it a break a few years back when the whole side swept hair thing took over. I don’t straighten all of my hair because I like the messy, undone look so I take a flat iron and only run it over the top. Check out some Pinspiration including Olivia Palermo, Kim Kardashian, Jessica Alba, and much much more!
I’m always on the lookout for a good bargain. Most of my scores are found at my favorite spots like Marshall’s, T.J. Maxx and Ross but I will shop anywhere at anytime as long as it has the right fit. Lately I’ve been noticing that a lot of my outfits have been ranging from about $50-$100 so I decided to share my top 5 under $50 and next month $100. To start things off I decided to go with my latest buy a chambray top from Walmart. I already have a bunch of chambray tops (one with polka dots, one with florals and a thick dark denim one that I sometimes use as a little jacket) so I wasn’t looking to buy more. However, I walked by the clearance rack at Walmart and spotted this light weight studded chambray top for $9 and I had to have it. At $9 it’s got all the right details, a studded collar that I love, tab sleeves and the fabric is light enough to wear all year. Thinking it would be great to wear as a beach cover up… I have lots of plans for it but this time I wanted to pair it up with a mini and my brown sandals. Not bad for an entire outfit under $50. 🙂
What I’m Wearing:
Chambray Top – $9 at Walmart
I love Kylie Jenner’s edgy looks but lately it’s her sporty chic style that have caught my eye. She mixes glam pieces with leggings and sneakers effortlessly! Here she is wearing a chunky turtle neck sweater, leggings, and sneaks. What makes her outfit so special? She belted the sweater which instantly gave her a more polished feel and it shows off her waist. I love it! Get Kylie’s look for under $100!
A little black dress is a closet staple but a little black dress that’s also a skirt and minimizes my waist and midriff is just genius! When I first got the Sassybax Convert-A-Skirt I immediately worried that it was going to be one of those suffocating fabrics – but it’s not. Sure it’s snug, but just snug enough to slim all the right spots. The more you play around with it the better it looks and what totally had me hooked was how when I realized that it held up the “little girls” and we all know that’s not an easy task. I wouldn’t say I would be able to go braless in it BUT any strapless bra would do (unlike other strapless dresses without support where I have to search high and low for maximum support). I’m obsessed with this dress! The fabric is a matte black making it super easy to dress up or down. It stays put which is important for me because I plan on wearing it on the dance floor and it’s machine washable. I could go son and on! It’s the perfect dress to pack on any vacation, for a night out on the town or under a blazer for a sexy office look. For more info on Sassybax’s Convert A Skirt visit

Kendall Jenner’s outfit is perfect for a freezing winter day! I love how she gave her winter basics a glam touch by layering a faux fur vest over them. Easy to recreate with must have pieces that you probably have in your closet but if not check out my picks below.
~ The Formula: Denim Jacket ~
Still one of my favorite dresses.
Whenever I want to look pulled together but not too dressy I throw on a denim jacket. I’ve had this dress from Ross for years and I’ve worn it solo during the summer, with sweaters and tights when it’s cold but my favorite is with denim. I was originally going to wear my deeper blue Levi’s jacket (seen here) but I thought the distressed one from American Eagle went way better with the boho vibe. Tip: If you’re lucky enough to get casual Friday’s at work, a denim jacket is an easy replacement for a suit or blazer and you can wear it with any skirt or pants.
What I’m Wearing:
Dress $14.99 from Ross
Distresses Denim Jacket $39.99 from American Eagle (also seen here)
Bangles/cuff $12.99 from Macy’s
Wedges from Charlotte Russe (also seen here)
Reese Witherspoon’s outfit is perfect for a summer! Great pieces to have in your closet, the midi skirt looks great with tank tops, a denim jacket and for cooler weather with a sweater.
