Currently Craving...under $30

Last weekend I moved into a new place and I'm still in the process of trying to unpack and organize everything. Since most of my week has been spent at Target and a quick trip to Nordstrom Rack, I am currently craving a few things on my shopping list that I'm hoping to pick up this weekend.

What are you currently craving?

New Target Nautical Home + Spring + Oh! Joy Collections

About two weeks ago while browsing the Target website, I came across this new nautical home collection and every shopping trip I checked to see if it arrived in store. Last night on an evening stop, there it was and I couldn't be more pleased with the quality. While not every item I found online was available in store, I'm hoping a few more items will show up on my next trip.

If I saw these items on their own, I would have guessed that Pottery Barn was behind this very chic nautical line. With simple designs and gold accents, this is how to decorate a coastal-inspired space. I didn't buy anything just yet, I had to take it all in and see what I really "need" since I'll be back at the store very soon and by soon, I mean later tonight.

Last weekend I saw the new spring collection, which is equally fabulous and chic, so I wanted to share those pictures too. A smaller collab debuted last week with blogger and pinterest favorite called Oh!Joy which showcases more upscale party items and décor in non-traditional colors.

What do you think of the new collections?

Spring Board Notebook - under $30

Today is the official first day of spring and I couldn't be more excited to break out some florals, wedges and denim cut-offs . Despite living in sunny California and not having to "wait" for warmer weather to actual wear any of these items, I still love a general shift in the color palette. So many cute spring and summer attire right now make me want to head to the nearest beach...or mall, it's the same thing right?

What item are you looing forward to wearing this spring?

Splurge v. Steal: Steve Madden Floral Heels

This edition of splurge v. steal finds yet another Steve Madden item up against a more affordable pair of neon floral shoes. This vibrant number has made it's way  at Kohls at a fraction of the price. This isn't the first time this style has made the rounds, seen in another very similar pair at Target last spring (when the Steve Madden shoe first debuted) and again this year! This is one popular shoe and it does have a very Carrie Bradshaw kind of vibe. Paired with a cute boyfriend jean and another pop of neon with a necklace or clutch, I am loving these for spring.

Which would you choose?

Style Board: Inspired by Kate Hudson

When I saw a picture of Kate Hudson at the "Decades of Glamour" event, I fell head over heels for this gorgeous shade of bright yellow. Paired with white for a fresh and chic look (my favorite kind of style!). Since then, I've seen this vibrant color popping up at virtually every store. I couldn't resist also adding a bit of the Irish with some green and floral for St.Patrick's Day. After finding the Peter Pilotto sunnies at the Target launch, I'm becoming addicted to mod styles and shades to add a super affordable punch to your look.

Banana Republic HUGE Deal Today!! 40% + add'l 25% off code

Sometimes, mid-week sales are better than the weekend and today is no exception! Banana Republic is having a major sale with stackable codes on top of their sale prices. I've already placed two orders so I can verify the codes are working together, but I'm sure this won't last if you want it, order it! You can save the most on handbags and jewelry, two of my favorite things at their store. Shoes are also at a deep discount and after buying a pair in January, I am hooked on the quality. Clothing of course is also discounted, but it's a rare thing to find leather shoes and bags at this price.

Happy Shopping Fashionistas!!

Old Navy New Arrival In-Store Pics!!

This past weekend I stopped at a newly renovated Old Navy store and couldn't believe all the cute new spring arrivals. I didn't know where to start first, until I noticed a chambray shirt dress on sale for only $12! There were so many unadvertised specials, I was slightly caught off guard since my original intention was to return a dress that was too big. Almost an hour later after snapping several pictures for the blog, I was lucky to walk out with only three things...although I know I'll be back for more.

What's catching your eye?

Weekend Favorites - under $30

I saw so many fresh new arrivals at so many stores this weekend, I can barely keep track of what item was from what store. This list of weekend favorites are things that I am still thinking about and are my shopping wish list.

Clearly mint and polka dots are at the top of my list and yet another tote from Forever 21 looks like real leather and could pass for a designer bag in person! These past two weeks I've been at Old Navy more times that I can remember and my favorite affordable pants are on sale this week, pick some up if you get a chance. I have been seeing so many kimono's and this skull printed is my favorite
(so far). I also spotted LC aviators that look more expensive than their twenty dollar price tag.

What's your favorite?

Celeb Style Notebook: Emmy Rossum under $30

I immediately loved this casual Parisian look on Emmy Rossum. Seen in Beverly Hills grabbing  breakfast a few days ago, this very simple and chic look can be recreated with items under $30 or with things you probably already have in your closet.

While I loved the pop of red handbag with the red shoes, I find it very difficult to match the shades of red. I myself own quite a few red bags and shoes and I wouldn't wear any of them together because it  wouldn't look as polished as I would like. I love the idea of breaking up the reds with a nice neutral bag and this one from Forever 21 is so nice and white bags are a must-have for this season.

What do you think of her look - would you wear it?
