I searched and searched for spring dresses for a girl on a budget and I hit the jackpot! They are all on prime and under $40! I am so obsessed and shared a try on on my instastory with more details but I wanted to do them justice and share on my blog too! Scroll down to see how I styled these dresses and shop them all at the bottom of my post!
#1 Red Checked Babyboll dress: This dress screams spring/summer. I love how classy it is and how it adds a fun twist on the typical gingham dress. This style is super flattering and I just love the color for the new season. Did I mention it’s under $20?!
#2 Lavender Shift Dress: This dress is the PERFECT Easter Sunday, bridal shower, baby shower dress you always dreamed of. It is such good quality, not see through and has the cutest capped sleeves and ruffle detail. It also comes in several colors but this one was too spring not to grab.
#3 White Button down Linen Dress: For the beach goer! I can’t get over how much I love this dress. The fit is super flattering and the button detail makes it so unique. I love it paired with espadrille wedges and a fun straw bag for your spring break travels!
#4 Light Blue T-shirt Dress: Last but not least, this t-shirt dress has the cutest of details, not to mention it literally feels like a nightgown. I love it styled with a denim jacket and wedges. You could also dress it down with some converse or white tennies for spring/summer on the go!
I hope you loved these finds as much as me. Oh, and they will ship to you just in time for your travel plans or staycation! Thanks for reading and following along, ILY!
Every Christmas I always wait until Christmas Eve to wrap allll my presents. Not sure why, just really good at procrastinating but not this year!! I am loving this gold/black reversible wrapping paper I got from American Greetings on Amazon(linked at bottom). Whoever created reversible wrapping paper was really thinking! I love how many different patterns I can choose from for such a good price. Read below for details about my Christmas pjs!
Each year I wrap gifts, I like to pick a theme for them so they all coordinate/match well together. That might sound silly but it motivates me to wrap them in a cute, thoughtful way. I highly recommend wrapping your gifts as opposed to using gift bags. It is just more thoughtful and special to open! I got these fun gold metallic bows from TJMaxx and found similar below ready to shop!
One of my favorite parts about the holidays is time spent in comfy, festive pjs with family and friends drinking hot coco and watching cheesy Hallmark movies. It just really puts me in the Christmas spirit and makes me feel like a kid again. The fair isle pj pants are from Gap last year but I found some just like them below! I love the pattern, style and material. They are SOOO soft and thin which is good if you get hot at night like me. I always love wearing a comfy, simple sweater with pj pants to keep warm! This sweater is the perfect winter staple because it can be worn casual like so or easily dressed up with a scarf and coat for a night out! Last but not least, these slippers are EVERYTHING! My mom(I mean Santa) got me and my sister these 2 Christmases ago and I am still wearing them nonstop and they look just as new as when I first got them. They are totally worth the price and they can be worn like I am here or folded down to show off the sherpa interior. Definitely a great stocking stuffer or treat yo self gift.
Happy wrapping y’all!!
Thanks to American Greetings for the fun wrapping paper!
It is our first Christmas as a married couple and our first Christmas in our own home and I had SOO much fun decking our halls(though they may be small). I am here to show you that you can still make your home feel festive and fun even if it is small! I will be sharing how I styled our bar cart, decorated our “mantle” and our tree and will share all of the links to shop any item you see at the bottom!
First up, our coffee station. This was such a fun spot to decorate! I already had the black pitcher and sugar/creamer cups but added these adorable wooden trees, reindeer thermos & hot coco packets from Trader Joe’s for the cold nights with Hallmark movies!
Bar cart: If you don’t have one of these in your home/apartment, you are MISSING out! I love changing it up for each season/holiday and this has got to be my favorite so far! Read below for how I styled my bar cart for Christmas!
So the top of our bar cart is for decor/candles/wall art/etc while the bottom is actually putting the cart to use! For this holiday bar cart, I wanted to mix both old and new with the classic Christmas truck sign I scored at TJMaxx along with this metal house that lights up at night, so cute and festive! I added some metallics to bring in some more current styles with this gold reindeer and gold sparkly faux candlestick(from the dollar section at Target)! I then added this plaid candle: Holiday Berry along with the little faux Christmas tree that I got for $5 at Target(everything is linked below). My favorite part is these starry lights that I added on to add something new to our bar cart. I absolutely love how it all turned out. These lights were also in the dollar spot and they are battery operated.
Just like the bar cart, for our kitchen, I knew I liked the Christmas decor that combined old, traditional Christmas with new, modern holidays style. I am a very indecisive person(ask anyone who knows me) so why not combine your Christmas styles?! I wanted some fun holiday glasses/plates for Christmas parties and for decor because we have glass cabinets! I found these mistletoe glasses and original Christmas tree mugs from TJMaxx and have linked similar ones at the bottom of this post. I added some fun Santa appetizer plates(Target dollar section) and kept my usual wine glasses, jadeite and pitchers to add some height and color.
For our Christmas tree, I love white/black ornaments to contrast with the green tree. I found these cuties from Target as well(because where else). They are such a fun style and match with our stockings.
Besides the bar cart, coffee tables are my second favorite thing to decorate for the different seasons. We already had this gold/white tray that we just change up for each holiday. I found this plaid wood tray at the Target dollar section and it fit perfectly inside of our white tray to add a pattern to our coffee table. I then added these wooden trees(just like the ones on our coffee stand). I love how simple they are and for some reason, they remind me of Elf. I always have to have a candle on our coffee table and this one is from last year at Target!
I don’t know why, but a cute pair of dish towels makes me way tooo happy. I love these both so much and love the combo of stripes/mistletoe. I found the mistletoe one at Target dollar section but the striped towel is actually Kate Spade and I have the exact one linked at the bottom of this post.
Here is our faux mantle, all we need is the yule log on tv and we’d be golden. Because we live in an apartment, we have to make do with our entertainment center as our mantle for our stockings. Target has the metal anchors for stocking that blend in perfectly with out tv stand! I just added some greenery around it and our stockings are from Hearth and Hand(Target) as well. I love the patterns and colors of our stockings, not to mention that they are $13!!(get yours below).
Last, but not least, our Christmas tree! My husband says our tree is definitely a girl because she has a bow AND a skirt, haha. I opted for a bow instead of a star/other tree topper to change it up a little. I love this bow and the cute plaid pattern! This is our first Christmas tree and because our apartment is pretty small, we opted for a 6′ tree AND it was only $30?!?! Best deal on a tree I’ve seen. It is a skinny tree but if you work the branches and spread them out, it looks full! I linked it below if you need a good small sized tree on a budget.
Again, I like old and new styles for Christmas and this wood beaded garland in red reminds me of my Nanny’s tree. It has a fun, vintage feel to it and I only needed 2 packages to wrap our tree in it. I then added our starry ornaments and love the contrast of white with the green tree. I found our tree skirt that says believe in the Target dollar section(I keep them in business). I couldn’t find the exact one but linked similar skirts below!
I hope this was helpful and gave you some ideas on how to deck your halls at home!
Thanks so much for reading, shop any of these items below!
I have always been a makeup bag girl. I loved how I could easily zip it up and take it with me wherever I went. Recently, now that I am all adult and have an apartment and husband and what not, I wanted to change my bathroom organization up a bit and I am sooo happy with the result.
I am so excited to share that I am a Container Store Brand Ambassador and will be working with them once a month to share a project with y’all to update our home for the better. This first month, I am focusing on my bathroom/makeup organization. I consider myself a type A personality on my good days but on the long, tiring days after work, organization isn’t always my number one. We are a pretty clean married couple if I do say so myself but our drawers still get messy and my makeup bag can become a black hole. Well, that is until I found the type A organization dream: idlivesimply! These products are sturdy, clear/plastic, easy to see and use products that have transformed our bathroom space for the better. I never thought I could love my makeup more but displaying all of my lipstick is just something special. The drawers are easy to open and the compartments are made for makeup palettes to fit perfectly! The other containers fit all of our night time needs in one place, keeping our countertops clutter free and makes it super easy to find what we need, like hair ties and bobby pins(because where do all of those go anyways). We even have separate compartments for our deodorant and for some reason, that makes me way too happy.
Bathroom necessities before:
Bathroom necessities after!!
For the rest of our bathroom update, we used drawer organizers to organize our medicine drawers and other bathroom drawers that needed some love. Drawer organizers are key to staying clutter free, especially when you live with a boy(no offense Patrick, you are pretty clean).
Shop all of my bathroom organization pieces below and on www.thecontainerstore.com!
Thanks so much for reading, have a great weekend!
