Fashion Friday: Current Faves

It’s been a crazy week trying to put EOS book 2 to bed so I’m leaving you for the week with a few faves that have been added to my closet or on my wishlist!

  1. These jeans from Gap fit great and are apparently stain repellant (I mean, it’s pretty much a scientific fact that if I’m wearing white jeans I will spill coffee on them within 20 minutes). 40% off today! Jeans for under $75 bucks? Yes please!
  2. I may have ordered this face wash and toner spritz just for the packaging (stripes!!!!) and how cute it’ll look in my bathroom. But the smell is great and they are delightfully light and bright for summer use!
  3. Wearing this light scarf right now!
  4. My new FAVE bronzer in color Stonestreet. PERFECTION.
  5. I am obsessed with this bag company Corroon all of the sudden. The leather is divine (but VERY $$$) so I am eyeballing the linen and blue version for summer (with a painted monogram of course!)
  6. BIG flower studs are THE earring of the summer- these are under $50 and not comically massive.
  7. Just ordered these sandals- the heel height gives a nice lift without being uncomfortable to walk in all day!
  8. Boden had a sale so I snapped up a few pieces like this dress in the red color. I LOVE IT. So flattering. Size up one size though, as it runs small. Ordering this blue version today!
  9. Also from Boden, this is the perfect beach coverup!
  10. I adore this Tata Harper cream blush– it gives you a glow and is super moisturizing!
  11. Got these sunglasses this week while on sale. Awesome style, big but not TOO big.
  12. Also just ordered these espadrilles as they were on sale! Love the classic look with jeans and white tee. Plus comfort, which is key when chasing after a 2.5 year old who refuses to nap all of the sudden!

Fashion Friday: Dressing Like A Duchess On A Budget

Yes, I am still in fact obsessing over all things Meghan Markle/ Duchess of Sussex.  I love her style and while I am disappointed “The Firm” is making her wear pantyhose now (UGH) I still think her looks are fantastic to try to emulate.  It’s refreshing to see fashion that isn’t based in shock value/ half nudity or ironic ugliness!  But since we all don’t have the budget of a Duchess, we have to improvise a little and find options that are more affordable but give us the same look. Thanks to a zillion great sales this weekend, it’s totally possible.   Here are some looks that cost less than probably just one of her shoes… the prices shown are for the ENTIRE outfit!

A Royal Wedding Review

I am honestly depressed the royal wedding is over.  I was delighted out of my mind on Saturday morning watching it and thought it was the best royal wedding ever. Not only for it’s beauty but for the more relaxed (for royals) vibe it had as well as a serious feeling of true love. Like, Harry is HEAD OVER HEELS, it’s so obvious. She was cool as a cucumber, and he was a fidgety, teary mess! It was adorable!

Ok, so down to brass tacks– the church and flowers were AMAZING. Absolutely perfect, loose, garden-inspired and exactly what I was thinking they would do.
