Happy Friday! It’s a little late, but for this week’s blog post I’m sharing some sales to shop this weekend. I don’t know about you, but I’ve been in a shopping fever lately. With spring coming up, all I want to do is buy spring items. Thinking of the warm weather I’m going to have in New Orleans is the only thing getting me through this week. But anyway, if you’re like me right now, then I’m sure you’ve been looking for some sales to shop for spring items. Happy shopping!

The thing I hate most about this time of year? I never know what to wear. One day it’s cold (like today), the next it’s sunny and warm. The way I’ve found that I can deal with this weather is to wear a lot of light layers. And with that being said, this teddy jacket is a game changer. I cannot tell you how often I’ve worn this since it came in the mail almost two weeks ago—I’m pretty sure my roommates are tired of seeing it.
The reason I love this jacket is that it’s so soft and extremely light. It has the look of the heavier teddy coats that were taking over all winter long, but significantly thinner. I love that I can wear this on the warm days over a tank or t-shirt, and when it’s cold I can throw a heavier jacket on top. This jacket has been my go-to in place of cardigans while I’m in class (I don’t know why but the classrooms are always freezing).
In keeping with the weather, I paired my teddy jacket with the bodysuit I’ve been wearing since the summer. It was such a good piece and I should definitely buy it in white. Over that, I put on my Levi’s. Side note: up until this moment that I went to find a link to these jeans, I was under the impression that they were boyfriend fit. Apparently they’re skinny jeans, but whatever… Finally, to top off the casual look, I threw on my absolute favorite shoes ever. I thought they were completely out of stock—which they are on Nordstrom’s site—but I found them fully stocked in all colors! I could definitely use another pair since mine are pretty dirty.
In the spring, I plan on pairing this jacket with a simple tank top and denim shorts. I can throw on a pair of sandals and be good to go! It really is the perfect transitional piece from now through spring.

Happy Monday! I don’t know about you guys, but I am so done with the rainy, cold weather we’ve had in North Carolina. To deal with it, I just keep thinking about my upcoming trip to New Orleans. While it’s not a beach location (maybe I’ll get some pool time?), I know that a lot of people will be heading to the beach for spring break. So in anticipation, I though I would create a round up of affordable swimsuits and cover-ups I’m loving. Most of my picks are under $40!

Happy Tuesday everyone! Today marks the first day of the annual Shopbop sale. Since Shopbop seems to be a little on the pricier side, this is the perfect opportunity to snatch up those higher end items you’ve had your eye on. I’m talking bags, shoes, jeans, maybe a nice sweater. The sale will last from today until March 2nd, so if there’s something you want, grab it now before it’s gone!
To shop the sale, make sure you use code GOBIG19 for…
15% off orders of $200+
20% off orders of $500+
25% off orders of $800+
To make it a little easier on you, I’ve curated some items I’m loving by category. All of my picks are perfect for spring and summer! Happy shopping 🙂
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! While I’m not actually celebrating this holiday, I do love any excuse to wear pink and eat chocolate. When I saw this pink and red dress I was in love! Especially when I found out it was $7. Although it’s now sold out in the pink and red stripe version that I’m wearing, it’s still available in three other colors. I’m really loving the white and black polk dot version. I don’t usually go for super bright clothing—if you’ve seen my Instagram feed, I pretty much wear white all the time—but something about this dress just stood out to me.
I also love that you can dress this dress up or down. I tried to make it a little bit more casual (although it’s definitely not a subtle look) by lacing the ties tighter and pairing it with booties. The dress also has a cut out above the stomach, which doesn’t really show on me with how tightly I tied the laces and because I have such a small torso (Definitely look at the dress on the model to get the full picture!) Even though the dress is more daring than I usually go for, the pink and red combo called my name! And in case you love pink (and a pink and red combo) as much as I do, I’m sharing some other Valentine’s Day inspired dresses:
I think all of these options are so great for spring and even into summer. Also, because we all definitely need another reason to shop, here are some Valentine’s Day sales. I mean, if today isn’t a treat yourself day, I don’t know what is!
I don’t know about you, but lately I have been FEELING the star print trend. I feel like out of nowhere this print started popping up and I can’t get enough of it. From dainty star jewelry to pieces like this sweatshirt, it’s such an easy print to incorporate.
I decided to pair my star print sweatshirt with a black denim skirt and some easy slip on shoes — my go-to. It’s such a casual, yet put together look. I wore this to class, but could definitely wear this out and about on the weekends.
And can I just say, I got so many compliments on this top when I wore it to class. It just looks so put together, but is the comfiest piece ever. The best part is that it’s only $22! This is definitely something to snap up now and wear all through the rest of winter and into spring.
And the best news: you can shop my sweatshirt, plus the rest of shein’s site with my discount code dainty15 for 15% off your purchase!
