I’m not really sure when it became a thing to wear fruit but I’m actually loving this new trend! It makes a statement with its bold colors and patterns.
I’ve been getting a lot of compliments on this lemon patterned dress that I scored at H&M! I love that the fit is so flattering and you can dress it up or down depending on the shoes and accessories you pair it with. I also love the price! I was able to snag this piece for under $10!
I probably won’t be rocking avacado leggings anytime soon. But as for this lemon dress I am completely sold!
Let me know what you think about this new trend!
Most people that know me know that I used to never want to be caught in a t-shirt but lately they’ve been forcing themselves on me with their cute designs and flattering cuts.
What I’m really excited about this week are my new tees from Sassy Queen. They’re comfy, cute, and give off just the right amount of attitude. I’m always really hesitant to rock tops with wording or sayings but these tees are everything a fashionista needs in her closet. The thing I love most about Sassy Queen is that their tops can be worn in different ways. Wear it casually with jeans and wedges or dress it up with pearls and pumps (which is hard to pull off with most t-shirts!).

It’s no secret that the summer heat in Minnesota can get just as bad as desert weather. Let’s be honest, on days that are hot and humid you might just want to dress to keep yourself cool rather than dressing to look good. But why should you have to pick one or the other?
This week I opted for my most recent find, a cute and breezy kimono that I found for under $15 at TJ Maxx. I absolutely love it! The best thing about kimonos is how many outfits you can wear it with. Pair it with a basic t-shirt and jeans or wear it as a swim suit cover up. It adds an instant pop of color! Plus it flows beautifully and dramatically whenever you walk, which just adds more to any signature hair flip (see below).
If you don’t know much about me then I’ll be the first to tell you that Mall of America has been my second home since I was in elementary school. I grew up spending most of my weekends there on the rides at Camp Snoopy (which, much to my dismay, is now called Nickelodeon Universe). Nowadays Mall of America is the place where I go if I’m looking to add few more key pieces to my wardrobe at home (thank you Minnesota for your tax-free clothing).
This week I left the mall jumping with joy because of the fabulous deal I found at Forever21. Recently they’ve established a section in the store that’s dedicated to clothing items under $10. You can literally piece an entire outfit together for $30. I was especially ecstatic when I managed to discover an entire wall of shoes for $5. It took everything in me (and a few reminders that I have a wedding coming up) to not buy every single pair.
So… here are my hunting trophies for the week!
Let me know what deals you’re going crazy about this week!
I’ll be honest… I was never one to stray away from mainstream shops. On the weekends you could find me at any Forever21 or H&M. Why? Because they have some of the best deals and their clothes are always kept up to date on the latest trends. It wasn’t until I started looking into fashion bloggers and getting some inspiration that I realized there is a whole world of local and online boutiques that offer some of the most original pieces.
I came across CourtPerkDesigns while scrolling through Instagram one day. I fell in love with all of their accessories and ordered my very own pom pom earrings! They’re a seriously amazing statement piece that pulls any summer outfit together.
The price tags on some of the items at these boutiques are slightly higher than what you’d find at a large retail market such as Forever21. But the people behind these smaller businesses are working hard to create a unique product for us that sets us apart from everyone else and I believe this kind of creativity is something worth supporting.
P.S. If you happen to love these pom pom earrings as much as I do visit CourtPerkDesigns website here and use ‘SAV20’ to get a discount off your purchase! I promise you won’t be sorry!
