The Look For Less: Lace Dresses

I thought I would continue in the theme of lace dresses for today's look for less. Yesterday's peach lace dress was an ok match to this gorgeous Elie Saab dress but I actually have another one that I thrifted a while back that is an even better match!

Left: Ann Taylor dress- thrifted $5
Right: Elie Saab Spring 2014 $alotmore

Lea Michele even wore it to the Kid's Choice Awards this year!

long necklace: Target $5

Happy Monday Everyone! Hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend! We had a great time seeing my family and my sister-in-law's family for lunch and my husband's family for dinner and games! The highlight is always hanging out with my niece Emmy though! She was so cute in her Easter dress running around the yard looking for eggs until she was exhausted and just plopped down in the grass! So thankful for the beautiful weather too!

This is what I wore for Easter! I guess I'm still on the boho kick! Our church and celebration afterward are pretty casual and I didn't want to have to change clothes after church so I just went with something in between! 

I'm off to the thrift store- Yay!

Top 8 Must Haves for Spring 2014

So, This Sunday is Easter which means...
the end of Lent which means...
I can go thrift shopping again! 

Giving up thrift shopping for Lent has been a great experience but I can't even tell you how ready I am to get back at it! So I thought I'd share with you all of the things I will be looking for at the thrift store next week! Of course I will be looking for anything for warmer weather because I know it's coming (I hope)! But here is a more specific list of what I'll be shopping for and what you can be looking for at your favorite thrift store too!

What are you shopping for this Spring?

Cute Outfit of the Day: Floral Pants

jacket: thrift $6
top: hand me down $0
pants: thrift $4
shoes: $4
necklaces:  Forever21 $8
sunglasses: Target $13
vintage purse: $3
Total Cost: $38

 These pants are something new for me. I've never worn a slouchy pants like these, let alone one with such a bold print! I have to say I'm loving these pants though! They are super comfortable and I feel like they are really figure flattering. I've seen ones that are a lot more baggy and I don't like those as much. I like how these fit close to the body but are not tight at all.

Have you tried the slouchy pant yet?

Cute Outfit of the Day: Boho Chic

 dress: thrift $5
belt: thrift $2
necklace: Bealls $10
earrings: so old I can't remember!
Sam Edelman boots: Nordstrom Rack- Christmas gift $0
Total Cost $17

I bought these boots with my Christmas money. I don't know what it was about them but it was love at first sight! They are different than anything I own but I think that was part of the appeal. I like what a bold statement they make. I've already worn them with more of a rocker style but today I went with more a boho vibe since that is what is inspiring me this week! 

I found the trick with over the knee boots is to either wear them over pants or with a skirt that is on the shorter side. There just needs to be some space between the top of the boot and the hemline. Being only 5ft tall that can be a bit of a challenge- mini skirts are usually like normal length skirt on me! I wanted to wear this dress but it was too long so to make it work I simply belted it and bloused it out a little and then it was the perfect length!

Trending Tuesday: Boho Chic

This time of the year always makes me want to dress a little bohemian. The temps are starting to warm up, inspiring pictures of celebs at the Coachella Music Festival are everywhere, and I'm just ready to relax after a long hard winter! I love the boho look and I rock it from time to time but I have to admit it's not completely me. I'm not quite as laid back and cool as the girls I see hanging out in the desert. But nevertheless, I think I use a little more boho attitude in my life!

Boho is...
 slouchy and relaxed
fringe and lace
booties and gladiator sandals
floral headbands
turquoise and silver
leather and suede
paisley and floral prints
jeans shorts

For more inspiration check out my Pinterest board Boho here!

AND come back tomorrow to see my boho chic outfit!

Cute Outfit of the Day: All Black

 vintage rhinestone sweater: gift $0
 vintage leather skirt: thrift $4
earrings: Forever 21 $5
shoes: thrift $4
Total Cost: $13

I was recently inspired by this post from my friend Ashley's blog Style On High to create an outfit that was all black. I just love how chic all black is! I wore this out to dinner for a friend's Birthday the other night!

One of my dear eyebrow clients gave me this sweater a few weeks ago. She said she saw it and thought it would look great on me! How sweet is that! Well, she was right and I absolutely love it! She even explained to me that vintage rhinestones like the ones on this sweater, are more sparkly than new ones because they have a pointy tip on the back instead of a flat back. I never knew that!
