Splurge

one / two / three / four / five / six / seven / eight 

Everyone likes having nice things, but it’s so hard to save when there are so many cute things out there ALL THE TIME! It’s especially hard when you are trying to save for a wedding and a house! I have had to change my spending habits lately. So when I see a designer item on a really cute blogger, I try to compensate by finding a similar look for way less! You’d be surprised how successful I have been! Above are the top items I have compared and contrasted. Pretty good right?! I mean if you can splurge on the stunning Valentino bag, more power to you! I just ask you let me borrow her, ok?!

Have a great day guys!

Affordable jackets for Fall…

I am swooning over all these jackets at Nordie’s. They have an awesome selection for Fall and in all price ranges. I have been looking everywhere for a pink faux leather jacket (it that a weird thing to look for?) and when I saw this one, I got so excited! And it’s under $100! I know for a FACT this will sell out verrry quickly, so even if you’re on the fence just grab it now! A little secret…I already bought it and I cannot wait for it to cool down in Miami. Even if it doesn’t, I am definitely taking it with me to New York in November. Pink is the new black for sure. Have a great day beauty girls!

Fall-ish…

Top: Nordstrom | Pants: Forever 21 | Shoes: Forever 21 | Necklace: c/o Culture of Cali | Clutch: c/o GiGi New York | Lips: Bobbi Brown Roseberry | Nails: OPI Taupe-less Beach

I went on a little Forever 21 shopping spree a couple days ago. You think I can still count it as a “Happy Birthday to me” present a week later? Well I couldn’t resist when I saw these awesome high-waisted jogger pants and to-die sling-backs. They aren’t the comfiest of darlings, but you know pain is beauty. I was so excited to finally accessorize my new layered necklace from Culture of Cali, I am in love with it. Adds a little edge, but still simple. I also recently added this lip color to my collection. I really think I will be wearing it non-stop for the Fall. Don’t forget to enter the BeautyBooked Giveaway going on now, contest ends next Monday! You could win a $50 gift card towards any salon or spa service! Good luck! Thanks for reading beauty girls!

P.S. Just had some dental/oral surgery done yesterday, so I am out for a couple days. As soon as I feel better and my chipmunk face goes away, I promise more outfit posts!

P.S.S. I wanted to take a sec to explain what @liketkit means on Instagram. I have had a couple readers ask me about it telling me they are not sure what it is or how it works. It is an awesome way to get all my outfit details straight to your inbox just by liking my picture on Instagram. All you have to do is register online at http://liketoknow.it and that’s it! After that, anyone that has the “@liketkit” or hashtag “#liketkit” under their Instagram picture, you can get their outfit info straight to your email. Hope that helps!
