weekend snapshots

weekend bliss

This weekend was a cause for celebration! My first crawfish of the season, my first Saturday with no plans {spent by the pool} and gathering friends and family to celebrate my sister’s wedding with just the perfect shower. I can’t believe it went by so quickly! Here is a glimpse…

Missing Austin so much today! I had a fabulous weekend meeting so many new friends, listening to great speakers and engaging with new brands. I have new-found motivation and feel like I need to take an entire week to get all my thoughts and inspiration together. Here is a glimpse into the fabulous weekend. Big shout out to the women who put on this wonderful event, I am counting down the days till next year. {look for upcoming post featuring some of my favorite items I came across}

So, here it is, my first outfit post! I wore this over the weekend and wanted to share a few shots. I absolutely love the bold jeans with the bright clutch, and who isn’t wearing polka dots right now? Not to mention a red lip as well!

P.S. I didn’t pay full price for anything I’m wearing! All were purchased on sale, with a groupon, or at an outlet.

don’t be afraid {be inspired}

One of the biggest fashion myths I find low-price shoppers cling to is that large, upscale, department stores are out of their price reach. Well I am here to say do not be afraid. Those with smaller budgets tend to stray away from these places. I instead jump right in. These department stores can be the perfect place for inspiration not to mention sale racks, especially at the end of the season. During my stay in NYC I visited Bloomingdale’s, my absolute favorite high-end department store. Here you can find anything from couture designers too much lower priced in-house brands such as aqua! The sales racks were packed full! With half-price cashmere, dressy silk tops even current winter items. I found a great top for $40! Not to mention I didn’t mind snapping inspiration along the way. The best part about Bloomingdale’s… the dressing rooms. They are huge, not to mention so perfectly decorated {the birds are not real}.

{amazing fitting rooms}

Moral of the story, don’t be intimidated to shop higher-end department stores, even if you come out empty-handed you still leave inspired!
