ten under $10 {beach edition}

I have several beach trips coming up and need to refresh a few key pieces worn out from last season. I’ve rounded up the best beach buys all under $10! How fun is the pink beach bag? And who can resist a new pair of sandals?! Now if this unseasonably cold weather would just excuse itself, the beach is calling.

Spring Essentials

Starting a little spring series all about the must haves for the spring; first up handbags. A colored cross-body bag is on my list. I came across one I loved last weekend and passed it up to think about it. I think I will be heading back to scoop it up this weekend! Shop the bags in the links below!

spring sneakers

Keeping in the theme of shopping for spring, a good casual sneaker is on my list. I wore these out in the fall and want to add a new style to the mix. I came across a pair of Vans I love…. who would have ever thought I would be shopping for Vans?! How great are all these styles, dress them up or down. {I love the style inspiration Michelle over at MJP blog put together, check it out!}

Van's for Spring

warmer days ahead

Today was an extremely rare “snow” day for us in New Orleans, businesses and schools closed, and ice on the ground, meant being stuck inside for majority of the day. I started doing a little spring browsing online and can’t wait to add a few new pieces to my closet.  Hurry up warm weather, here are my favorite spring 2014 trends!

in between

Keeping in the theme of yesterday’s post, I can’t help but purchase transition pieces. Ones that will take me right into the early days of summer. Unfortunately it gets way too hot down here to even wear light weight jackets in the summer, but for the next few weeks these jackets would be perfect!

friday finds {pattern love}

By now you are all well aware, I love a good collaboration. Anytime a designer produces pieces at an affordable price point I am all over it. DVF has done it again, this time with Roxy. Pairing up for a lovely little swimwear collection. Diane knows bold prints better than anyone else, and these prints are perfect for days spent in the sunshine. How cute are the little bags as well, the smaller ones are perfect to pack your swimsuits in.

black & white on bottom

So many spring trends and one that I can’t seem to get away from is black and white {as seen here}. What makes this color combination so great is its versatility and that it screams “wear me now”. No need to wait for warmer weather!

black & white in NYC

On my trip to New York last week, I couldn’t help but notice the abundance of black and white. From the windows at Bergdorf’s, to the floor tile at Magnolia Bakery, to the new arrival racks at H&M. Here are a few of my black and white NYC moments. Stayed tuned to shop the look later this week.

new arrivals

While shopping around New York, I couldn’t get enough of the new spring arrivals in store. I brought the shopping bug home with me and can’t seem to stop searching out spring items online. Here are a few of my fav new items from Forever21.
