Things My Money Can Buy



Spring Is Here!

It’s officially spring!  I wanted to share a quick post of this fabulous dress I purchased from H&M.  It was such a great find for only $30 and the perfect look for brunch with your girlfriends.  The ruffles at the bottom added a little something special to it!




I paired the dress with a satin headband (which I love a good headband!) from H&M and white pumps from Zara.  I added a little jacket from Zara as a little touch.  It matched perfectly with my headband.  🙂




H&M is currently having a 70% markdown!  Happy shopping ladies…

What will you be wearing this spring?



Polka Dot Dress

I’ve never been a huge fan of polka dots but this trend is not going away anytime soon!  I recently purchased this adorable dress from Zara.   It was such a good find for under $20!  Not only am I fan of the silhouette of the dress but the puffy sleeves adds to it! IMG_0165


I paired the dress with black booties also from Zara for only $29.99!  I fell in love with these ruffled ankle boots.  To add a little color, the red hat was the icing on the cake along with the two necklaces from H&M.




This is my second polka dot item purchased and I would definitely be willing to purchase more.  Will you be wearing polka dots this spring???



A Simple Way to Wear Metallic Skirts! 

Metallic colors have definitely been a trend! From awards shows to our most popular bloggers, we’ve seen this EVERYWHERE! 

While I was in H&M I came across a great deal. Mettalic skirt for $15. I couldn’t pass it up and decided to purchase. I figured I’d find something I have already to go with it.  I decided to go with a tom boy Chic look with sneakers and a bomber jacket.  You can pair your metallic skirt with heels or if you want to be comfy like me – throw on a pair of converse or adidas.   I had fun with this look! 💁🏽

Check out it below!!  What would you wear with your metallic skirt???

‘Tis the Season…

For holiday parties that is!  I’m never one to turn down a party especially when I’m given the opportunity to add a little glam. 😍

Office holiday parties are tough because you want to be chic but also want to have a fine balance of festive and professionalism. 

Don’t be afraid to mix and match prints or add a pop of color!  Leather is also a great item to spice up your look.  Winter white is also my fave as well. So many trends that can be incorporated into your holiday look! Don’t be afraid to be a little non traditional! 

Check out my look below as I decided to add a pop of color to my holiday look with this great dress from H&M!

A Little Polka Dotty….👙

Polka dots are one of the most versatile trends. They can be very fun with a retro look on a dress or matched with another print for a “mixed prints” look. 

The key to wearing polka dots without looking like a child is fairly simple…
1.  Wear polka dot prints thatnare fairly small. 
2.  Make sure your look is modern by pairing your polka dots with jeans, leather skirt or a blazer. 

H&M and ASOS has some really great polka dot shirts!  All under $40.  
Check out my modern polka dot look below!

Must Haves For An Edgy Look! 

Depending on my mood, sometimes I want to be a little edgy/rock Chic. It gives me a sense of freedom and makes me feel like somewhat of a badass. (LoL). 

I believe there’s a few essential items needed in order to achieve the “edgy” look. Check out my four items below!!! 

1.  Black or Dark Blue Denim Skinny Jeans – must fit at the ankle 

2.  Boots – I prefer just above the ankle but not so much at the knee. DSW has great selections. 

3. Leather Jacket – Must be cropped. I found the perfect Leather Moto Jacket from Zara for just under $50. Forever21 also has great options for under $50 as well. 

4. Sunglasses – My personal choice are aviators. I love RayBans! and Nordstrom Rack has great deals for under $120. If you’re not looking to spend that amount…Walmart, Target and Urban Outfitters typically have a great selection as well. 

There you have it ladies! Take a look below of my rocker/ edgy Chic outfit below. 

Outfit Details:  

1. Moto Jacket | Zara: Under $50 

2.  Graphic Sweatshirt | Forever21: Under $20

T-shirt Dress:  Summer to Fall 👚

Who doesn’t want to be comfortable, right?  This summer’s trend T-shirt dress is absolutely my fave and I’m not ready to give it up just yet! 

There’s a few different trends that can be transitioned from summer to fall and this is one of them. 

I paired a simple T-shirt dress with a leather jacket purchased a year ago and boots. Ladies, if you’re in a colder climate don’t be afraid to add some cute tights in the mix.  Oh and by the way can’t forget the sunglasses – it definitely helped the look. 😎  Check it out below! Will you be wearing t-shirt dresses this fall???

Don’t Throw It Away Just Yet! 😉

We all go through phases of cleaning out our closet and giving away those old items we don’t want. Well I’m here to tell you to rethink throwing away some of those old items, especially any type of denim jacket.  

I came cross this old and I mean very old denim jacket from BeBe in my closet and had to wear it. I’ve had this jackets for at least 8 or 9 years…😳 but for some reason I never got rid of it. 

I paired the denim jacket with a very simple fitted cotton dress from H&M….so comfy for Sunday Brunch. Check it out below. 

Choker: Forever21 – $4.50
Dress: H&M – Under $20
