This week we are showing off our thrifty finds but, fear not, we’ve listed below where you can find similar vintage looks! Allie is big on shopping at Amvets for her unique finds but  her current go-to heels are an easily hunted treasure at many thrift stores. I am wearing a pair of vintage Levi’s that I found on a recent adventure to Amvets with Allie but, as usual, I am showing off a whole lot of my favorite online shopping resource, ASOS. They have an immense inventory  and speedy shipping. Featured brands include: Ray Ban, Unif, Levi’s, Free People, Target and more!

An oversized flannel and a pair of distressed flared jeans is a great example of a comfortable yet trendy outfit. Easy to put together and you’ll stand out with some of the pairing statement pieces. But nothing stands out more than blue hair! We had a lot of fun with our impulsive dying spree this weekend, Manic Panic has gorgeous color choices and is semi-permanent making our weekend a little more interesting.

It took me a bit to pick up on this bell bottoms trend, but here they are and I couldn’t be more excited to share with you all! My first encounter with this trend I found that they did not flatter my figure and passed them up for a long while, until I found a style with a print with a downward motion which helps elongate my short figure. I would love to help you find the right style to flatter your body shape. Its all about print, length and shape. For those of you with short legs a solid color or downward print flare pant will help lengthen your look. If you are like me and have a longer torso I suggest a high waist to add the illusion of long legs even more so. For those of you with petite shapes the wide leg flare will help give more curve to your silhouette and you can honestly pull off prints or solids equally. For curvy figures I would suggest solid chooses over print, but if you want something fun try a downward print instead of side to side or the Meraki Moon option has a stripes in the material. Contact me with any questions!

I love spring!  It’s a time of renewal and freshness and possibilities.  The colors, the smells and the crisp air turning warm are all signs of spring.  I personally love pastels and florals which are a sure sign of spring but I love the earthy-ness that is spring as well.  I chose to use these colors to convey that spring is more than just flowers and baby blue.  This is my definition of a laid back outfit; which in my case means causal, cute and trendy. I am all about the mix and match looks lately. In this outfit I’mmixing up the textures (knit cargo and lace) a bit to give this cutesy look a little edge.  Because I love them so, I’ve added one of my go to vintage Dooney and Bourke purses; similar vintage bags can be found on eBay, the link can be found below.
