Spring finds for less

Hello and happy Thursday friends!

Earlier this week I stopped into the new Marshall’s store at Easton for a little retail therapy. You know when you have an idea of something you want to add to your closet and then Bam, you find it? Well, that happened to me. I’ve been on the prowl for a flowy low back tank top and bright sandal, and found exactly that in store – the best kind of surprise! I’ve also had my eye on something lavender, and found the perfect short sleeve blouse that will be great to wear to work now that it’s getting warm outside. Let’s not forget about workout attire – I love the awesome brand names I can get for a low price. I stocked up on some bright sports bras perfect for summer (and when I hopefully get a tan).

After I perused the clothing, I made my way to the home décor section. I recently moved and need to stock up on a few things. I found the perfect coffee container, fruit basket and bowls for the kitty.

Regardless of what you’re looking for, you’re bound to find something at Marshall’s! Go get your shop on Columbus 😉

2018 Bikini styles

Pool weather is so close I can almost feel it. With that said, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite bikini styles for the season. From high-sides, smocked details and the classic stripe, you’re sure to find one you’ll love. Enjoy!

HIGH SIDES

Now, I can’t say I can hop on the high waisted bikini trend just yet, But I do love the one pieces with the Baywatch feels. Those high cut sides can elongate anyones legs.

SMOCKED DETAIL

I’m already digging the smocked trend with tops and dresses, so the fact it’s on bikinis makes it even better!

STRIPES

I bought a striped bikini a few months ago for vacay and I’m obsessed. Now I want about 5 more of them and to live somewhere a bikini is worn 80% of the time.

Best places to shop in Ohio

Did you know that Columbus, Ohio is the 3rd largest fashion capital in the U.S.? Not only that, it’s home to a lot of great local and non-local businesses you can shop at. I was raised to shop at sale racks and trips to the outlet malls always took precedent over the normal malls. As I got older, trips to outlet malls diminished as I took to online shopping. To be honest, I thought outlet malls basically had the same stuff I could get online during good sales, hence, why I haven’t been to an outlet mall in years.

Little did I know, the Tanger Outlets offer so much more than just a standard discount. Rewards points, coupon books, in-store sales etc., can get you deals that you wouldn’t be able to find anywhere else. The best part is that if you do find a better deal, they’ll match it!

Retailer wise, I love that they have a lot of the shops I typically go to. Gap, Express, Loft, Banana Republic, American Eagle, just to name a few. There are also stores that I wouldn’t typically shop at due to price such as Coach, Michael Kors etc., but given the deals Tanger offers I feel like I can actually treat myself to those retailers!

I had the best time perusing the shops at an event Tanger hosted for me and a lot of other local bloggers. I found the most amazing throw blanket, duster cardigan and blouses.

Under $100 spring jackets

I don’t know about you, but I’m already thinking about the transition from winter to spring. I love the non-humid, crisp days where all you need is a light jacket. Speaking of jackets, they are one of my favorite layering pieces during the cooler months. Now, what type of jackets should you stock your wardrobe with this spring? You can always count on WWD to round up the latest trends, and I’ve taken those trends and translated them into stylish under $100 spring jackets. The classic anorak with an added color pop, fringe, satin, sheeny and sheer are just a few trends you’ll see this spring.

Summer sleepwear

The temps are rising outside, and I don’t know about you all, but I’m already starting to get toasty at night. If there’s one thing I don’t like, it’s being too hot when I sleep. I’ve always had a love for pajamas, but it’s hard to find a set that is cute AND a good price. Sorry friends, but my wallet has no room for the 100% silk fancy stuff. I also like my pajamas to be pajamas and not border line underwear. Adore Me comes a close second to the high end feel but at a great price. I was able to receive three sets from the brand and to say I’m happy with them is an understatement! The fabric is light, soft, and the styles are too cute.

The fashion pieces you SHOULD be buying this Memorial Day

I love a good weekend sale as much as the next person – but more often than not people tend to purchase trending or in-season fashion during big sales. Memorial Day weekend sales are coming up and it’s the perfect time to stock up on fall/winter wear.

What fall/winter wear should you get? Sweaters, blouses, boots, and jackets/coats tend to be the priciest so you can get some pretty awesome deals on those pieces during Memorial Day sales.

NORDSTROM

The half yearly sale starts today and you can get an additional 40% off clearance items

The glitter boot trend will stay strong come fall. I love this pair because they’re not TOO glittery and a great heel height. The best part about them is you could pair them with a denim mini skirt for summer.

Marc Jacobs Glitter Bootie – $237.00 [originally $395]

You’ll be seeing a lot of nylon outerwear this fall and I’m particularly excited about it because it’s a functional fabric – ick to wet weather, but at least you’ll look good.

Vince Camuto Nylon Coat – $99.00 [originally $218]

BANANA REPUBLIC

40% off your entire purchase

Classic shirts with a twist are all the rage right now and will work their way right into fall. The sleeves on this top are too good.

Banana Republic Shirt – $62.00 [take an additional 40% off that!]

Other fall trends you could keep an eye out for are:

  • Western inspired pieces
  • Chocolate brown colored items

  • Statement faux fur
  • Retro plaid

Espadrille styles to add to your wardrobe

I’m over the snow and the cold that’s for sure. If there’s one thing I buy the most it’s probably shoes. I tend to drag my feet, walk through mud puddles and basically thrash my shoes, so I feel like every 3 or 4 years I need to sadly replace the ones I love.

Espadrilles are something I have my eye on for spring / summer because the pair I own is toast. Espadrille flats are perfect for every day and espadrille wedges are great for casual days or nights out. I’m on the prowl for some flats, but I’ve rounded up some AMAZING picks for you to browse yourself. Enjoy! *feature image via pinterest
