Anchor's Away! New Old Navy Arrivals + Store pics!!

          With January almost behind us (that was quick!), spring arrivals are bringing a wave of nautical style to get your sailor girl on in full swing! Old Navy has an entire collection of all things nautical with anchors and stripes adorning sweaters, shirts, scarves, and bags. While I am patiently waiting for everything to show up at my local store, here is a peek at what is available with more styles to come.  I also couldn't resist adding this adorable necklace from Forever 21 and a chic headband from Nordstrom. I'll be adding a bit of nautical glam to my wardrobe with the back-in- stock sequin tank top for only $8!
Are you a Nautical girl - what's your favorite?

Sales to Shop, Shop, Shop!

The mid-week shopping deals are here and they are even better than last week! As always, shop fast because items sell out fast. I would have loved to share more of my Gap finds, but items were literally disappearing from my cart as I was gathering picks to show you. One of the best deals I found is this jacket, oh how I wish it was cold enough to justify buying it. My advice to shop the Gap sale is to start with jackets/outerwear first, then sweaters, and load up on cute striped tees too!

Happy Shopping!!

10 Statement Necklaces for under $15!!

 Statement necklaces are continuing their reign this spring with more swoon-worthy pieces that will have you looking glam in an instant! I decided to focus on Forever 21's new arrivals since they are
the most affordable finds for everyone. The retail giant is taking a page (almost literally) from the iconic J.Crew and producing some quality necklaces with the same chic style. The first necklace is so pretty and nearly identical to a previous J.Crew necklace, scoop that one up while you can! I love that you can dress up a simple tee and jeans by simply wearing a statement necklace.
What's your favorite statement necklace and how do you wear them?

Weekend Notebook: Target New Arrivals!!

I spent a long time in the clothing department at Target over the weekend. As I shopped the racks and racks of 70% off clearance clothing, I kept getting distracted by all the new arrivals and loving the black, blue and white collection (so chic and modern!). I couldn't find the new collection online yet, so if you are dying to get your hands on something or just want to check it out in person, maybe give your store a few days to put out their new inventory, since only one of my stores had everything.

What are you favorite items?

Rihanna x MAC Viva Glam is Here!!

The Rihanna x MAC Viva Glam Collection are now available to shop online and in stores.The uber popular collab have previously sold out within minutes of going on sale. This launch includes the two Viva Glam lip products that are described as a bold blue-red with frost finish in limited edition packaging.

Need another reason to purchase these gorgeous shades of red? Shop guilt-free with 100% of the selling price going to fight those affected by HIV/AIDS. While these two items are rumored to become a permanent part of the Viva Glam Collection (like others before it), they are still part of a 'limited edition', so don't wait too long to make your purchase.

Will you be buying anything or are you feeling a little fatigued from the Rihanna collection?

Shop the Collection at Nordstrom // Macy's // Bloomingdales's // MAC Cosmetics

Ipsy Glam Bag - Jan 2014

My new Ipsy bag arrived and for the first time, I am disappointed with the bag I received. Yes, I only paid ten dollars for everything and received about twenty dollars worth of products... but most of the samples were so tiny and nothing that I am dying to try. There were some high-end products included in some Ipster's bags, mine just wasn't one of them. That's the thing about "mystery" subscription bags, some months are amazing and others are just okay. The best part about this not-so-great bag is next month's bag is almost always better than the last one... at least that's what I am hoping for anyway!

What did you think of this month's bag?

10 Weekend Favorites under $25

This weekend I literally shopped until I dropped and gave new meaning to "shopping is my cardio". I found so many amazing deals and also saw some new favorites to add to my growing shopping list. I'll admit after scooping up sweaters for less than ten dollars, even considering making a full-price purchase this weekend wasn't going to happen. Here are some of my favorites for less than twenty-five dollars.

Celeb Style Notebook: Reese Witherspoon + Sale Codes + Free Weekend Deals!!

I am always a fan of Reese Witherspoon's easy and chic style. She puts the prep in her (Christian Louboutin ) step and looks pulled together for a day of errands in Beverly Hills this week. Reese's shoes would cost you almost $600 and her Saint Laurent bag is close to $3,000! I found some wardrobe basics similar to her pieces without the designer price tag.

Would you wear this look?

Work Chic under $25 + Sales to Shop now!!

The three-day shopping weekend for some of us is almost here which brings additional markdowns on top of the already reduced sale prices. While you can almost always score the same discounts online, I also recommend stopping by the mall to save even more. I saw this dress at Zara this week and can't stop thinking about (it's now in my online shopping cart) and these bags from Nordstrom are a steal for less than twenty-five dollars!

What shopping deals have you scored this week?

Peter Pilotto x Target Lookbook is here!!

You have less than a month to start saving and planning your must-have pieces from the Peter Pilotto for Target designer collaboration... and it. is. so good! The London based design house will have a 60- plus collection that includes clothing, accessories and swimwear. It launches during New York fashion week in February and prices start at $16.99 for sunnies!

I'll admit when Target first announced the big collab a few months ago, my first reaction was "Peter who?". After doing some quick research, I realized I was familiar with some of his dresses, but that was about it. Since I'm not a huge print person, I was semi-relieved to think this wouldn't be a collection I would be shopping online until the wee hours of the night. All of that has now changed after seeing this lookbook...darn it Target, it looks like you've done it again!

Look for this collection at Target stores and online at Net-a-Porter on February 9th!

Who else is excited to shop this collection?

Currently Craving: Target Style Edition + New Arrival pics!!

I am currently craving everything from, seriously. I have so many items in my virtual shopping cart, I actually received a message when I tried to add yet another pair of shoes that read "your cart is full, please remove an item." I shop at Target a few times a week, but this has got to be one of the best collection of new arrivals in both clothing and shoes..and the home d├ęcor! So many things look like designer versions from J.Crew or Kate Spade, maybe that's why I am so in love!

What are you currently craving from Target?

Splurge v. Steal: Peep-Toe Bootie for only $35!!

Less than 24 hours after I posted Target's new peep-toe booties on Instagram, I spotted a Nordstrom ad on their webpage spotlighting a very similar pair of booties from Steven Madden for $100. I love Steve Madden's bags and booties, but I also know that this brand does it's fair share of copy-cat chic versions of high end designers, translation: there is a more expensive pair of booties floating around in the fashion universe that may be hundreds of dollars that look identical to Target's affordable version (leave me a comment if you have seen these boots for way more!).

The Steve Madden pair is so similar to Mossimo's booties, they are even available in the same colors with the same style snap back strap, the graining on the heel and height, and of course the peep-toe opening, which is slated to be a huge trend for Spring. The best news is that more than likely we will be able to pick the affordable version for even less when they go on sale down the line, I have my eye on the cognac color.

Will you be picking up a pair - what do you think?

10 New Year's Resolutions for 2014

This year, I wanted to share some of my New Year's Resolutions to hopefully inspire you to make a list of goals and to-do's, or steal some of mine! I am an obsessive list maker and enjoy planning for the possibilities of the year ahead. I treat the entire month of January as a "fresh start" even if I don't start every.single.thing. on the first day of the year..too overwhelming. This is for anyone who is looking to try something new and become a better version of yourself in 2014!
