So many of you request a prep for less post, and honestly it's a lot of sitting and waiting and watching for deals and for stores to go online. Despite all the waiting and watching for sales, there are a few tips to know when it comes to shopping prep for less, despite if a store is on sale and today I want to share those with you. This post is pretty lengthy, so I'm just jumping on into it, but if you have a prep for less tip, leave it for other readers in the comments below
Maintaining a classic outfit doesn't have to be determined by how much money you spend or the labels on your clothes. Something as timeless as a great quality striped shirt can be found almost anywhere and styled a thousand different ways. Don't overcomplicate such a simple item though. When paired with a tailored pair of shorts, your favorite striped tee can become a standout item in your summer wardrobe. I'll preach about my collection of striped shirts until I can't wear t
I never really gave the Nordstrom sale any attention until a few years ago. I always knew it was a great sale, but being Nordstrom I knew the prices were on the higher side. Oh my goodness, was I so wrong -- y'all this sale is incredible. Nordstrom puts big and small brand names on incredible sale making the expensive items affordable and inexpensive items a total steal. Almost everything is over 40% off and there are hundreds of items on sale. If you need a pair of shoes, a
I'm a big fan of Instagram stories and it seems like you all like these graphics as well. I must say, all of the other bloggers around me have also stepped their game up, which inspired me to do some research on how I can create the best Instagram stories. The thing about Instagram is that they reward those who use all of their features by putting them higher up on the explore page. One of these coveted features is InstaStories and all of the bells and whistles that comes alo
Finally, Lilly Pulitzer is bringing back seersucker. It's been years since the classic brand has worked with the delicate pastel fabric and I know I'm not the only one that's missed it throughout these year. Just a few weeks back, Lilly Pulitzer released a handful of items in a blue seersucker including the Alivia Dress. This dress is a great balance between a floral white bodice against a classic full seersucker skirt. This dress even has roomy pockets for your phone, ID, or
I definitely went on a little spending spree this month, and now in the words of Rebecca Bloomwood from Confessions of a Shopaholic "my wallet is closed, I do not want to shop". But seriously, I can't shop anymore🙈. Everything was either on sale or employee discount though, so that counts for something, right? I knew throughout May, I would be purchasing a few essential items like a new navy dress, a pair of black shorts, and a brown wedge. I also needed a few new swimsuits.
One of my favorite things to do is play around with the clothes in my closet and try to get as many outfits as possible out of only a handful of items. I try to base my entire wardrobe off this principle. Many readers and followers of the blog ask how I continually come up with cute outfits and style everything without making the same outfit twice. It might seem like I have a gigantic wardrobe at my fingertips, but the truth is that I expand my closet by purchasing extremely

One of my special talents, that I seriously think I should write down on my "other skills" section of my resume is that I can find a good sale almost anywhere. I think that you don't have to spend a million bucks to look like a million bucks. I hope these posts can help soothe all of your questions about dressing "prep for less" for the summertime. With the warmer weather approaching, I try to stay way from jeans in general. They're hot and uncomfortable. I shared a variety o
