I love a good nude lip color. I also love a great deal as most of you know! Today I’m sharing my 2 go-to nude lip pies, one is a gloss and one is a lip balm- BOTH are less than $5!
Maybelline Baby Lips in Peach Kiss.
This peach scented and slightly shimmery lip balm is perfect for everyday. Has the feel of chapstick with a nude/ peachy tint. Very hydrating as well!
NYX Butter gloss in Creme Brulee.
This silky smooth butter lip gloss lives up to its name! It glides on like butter and actually stays put! It is also no secret that this lip gloss is a dupe for many high-end lippies including NARS and Lorac.

I’m so excited to have received my very first Vince Camuto handbag and will be wearing it all year round. This gorgeous bag comes in a variety of colors, but I opted for black and white. I absolutely love black and white anything and this bag can be worn with burgundy in the Fall and peach in the Spring. Black and white is complimentary to most colors. The great thing about Vince Camuto bags is that they are beautifully designed( they are reminiscent of Reed Krakoff bags) are very well constructed. in fact, they are so well made that I was shocked at how reasonably priced these bags are- I mean they are not $40 bags, but they are also not unattainable like many designer bags are unfortunately. If you’re on a budget, this bag is worth saving for, but you won’t have to save long! Check out the bag below, I hope you love it as much as I do :)

Hi y’all this is not my typical outfit of the day post, it’s pretty much all about my favorite new clutch. I’ve been getting a lot of questions and comments on this particular outfit and clutch so I thought I’d tackle then all right here right now. This gorgeous dress is from the Webster Miami/ Target collaboration a couple of years ago. The print is magical and the dress is very flattering on. The dress sold out pretty quickly although you may be able to find it on EBay. My favorite nude sandals were $7.99 at Forever 21 last year and my pretty pastel bracelets are from H&M- also last year! My coordinates collection bracelet IS currently available as well as my Gigi New York Coral clutch, my dainty Catbird diamond ring and my mint sunglasses ! Links listed below.
It’s no surprise that I live for the high- low mix and love wearing my high-end jewelry, bags and clothes with my low-end stuff! I feel like the best looks include pieces at all price points. So if you’re on a budget have no fear, you must remember that money can’t buy style, and if you’re a label snob, remember you’re missing out on so much cute stuff if you don’t give it a chance based on price. I can’t stress enough that when you properly execute your high low mix, most people think it’s ALL high-end anyway!!!!! Cheers to stepping outside of your fashion box and jumping aboard the high- low mix train!!! CHOOOO CHOOOO!
Mint Sunglasses, Nordstrom.(Only $12) Dainty baguette diamond rose gold ring, Catbird. Coordinates Collection cuff. Clutch, Gigi New york.(Available in 2 sizes and many colors)
Every year Spring/Summer rolls around, I get so excited to use my bolder and brighter lip colors, eyeshadows and blushes! There is no better time to incorporate beautiful color into your makeup routine. This Spring/Summer Lorac released 2 great colorful palettes that are sleek and perfect for travel as well as reasonably priced at $24. Both palettes feature 10 shimmer and matte shadows which include 2 oversized neutral shades allowing countless color combinations. The palettes are quite similar, so if you can only afford one, don’t worry! One palette (After Glo)does feature some brighter colors than the other palette (Summer Glo) which you will see in the pictures below! It is just a matter of taste and whether you want to remain more on the “neutral/colorful” side or the ‘bright/colorful” side. Either way, these palettes are PERFECT for summertime and are So pretty!
Lorac Summer Glo palette $24 This palette is colorful, but includes slightly more subtle colors.
Lorac After Glo palette $24 this palette has more “BAM” to it, slightly brighter, bold colors.
Happy Friday everyone! I hope you’ve had a great week thus far and have an even ether weekend! This week’s finds are all super cute and of course affordable sunglasses! Summer is right around the corner and you need to stock up NOW! At these prices, you could by them all! Go on and Treat yourself!

These knee-high Stuart Weitzman gladiator sandals have been all the rage this Spring. I gave them some serious thought, but for something that was outside of my fashion box, the price wasn’t worth it for me, UNTIL last week when I scrolled across my blogger buddy’s Instagram page (Amy’s Vintage closet)and saw her wearing what I thought to be Stuart Weitzman sandals, but NOOOOOOO they were super affordable alternatives. I immediately started my search and found them too!!!!! They arrived on my porch TODAY and they look the SAME as the $400 pair! At $32 I was totally willing to try knee-high gladiators! Scroll down for all the details on where to get a pair of your own!
If the $400 price tag of the Stuart Weitzman gladiators pictured above crushed your gladiator dreams, have no fear- affordable alternatives are hear!!!!!
