Fashion on a Budget- Hats

Fashion and BeautyRenee DickComment

You all have seen the cute fun hats everyone is wearing lately. I could not get them out of my head, I wasn’t sold on them completely since I have never seen anyone wear one in real life. The people that I would see wearing them were the perfect IG like to know it girls that literally can wear a sack from Walmart and make me want to buy that shit.

But you know me and of course I was like “If that chick can pull it off, so can I” I went to Amazon and got to creepin until I found one that wasn’t completely overpriced. Can we just take a minute and give a shout out to Amazon and how cute their clothes have been lately! I swear every single cute thing I have seen is from Amazon. To say I was nervous about the quality and fit is an understatement, I was crossing my fingers that it was going to fit my big head. When it arrived I immediately tried it on and it was perfect. The quality and the fit were better than I expected!

I swear I wore this thing everyday since I got it. It comes in tan and burgundy and that burgundy one is calling my name. I might have to order it asap. For less than $20 you really can’t beat it. I wanted to show you the four outfits that I styled it with and maybe inspire you to hop on this trend. I attached the link for the one I am wearing here.

Comfy T-shirt dress

Praise Jesus I finally found a dress that covers my butt! Normally I am not a dress type of girl, but this one was just so cute, I couldn’t pass it up. I bought it at Forever 21 per usual, they need to sponsor me already, like what are they doing with their life? It is long enough to cover all the goods which is a rare occasion with dresses at that store. It is soft and flattering with the high neck and folded over sleeves. It is the perfect cozy dress for mommin on a Tuesday. I saw it in a forest green as well but it didn’t speak to me like this color.

The pink was just so fun and figured it would look great with my leopard platforms. Now that I’ve worn it, I’m definitely going back for that forest green, I freaking knew that was going to happen. The shoes I’m wearing are Steve Madden and were $50, which is awesome especially for Steve Madden, he is not cheap, most times I find the dupes at the random stores in the mall, anyone else do that? They also come in camo and black. You may or may not be seeing those in future posts cough cough.

With summer around the corner this is a great dress to wear casual with sneakers or can be dressed up with cute wedges or sandals. I am wearing a size small and it was $12.90! I know, that price is amazing!

I linked a couple more dresses that are under $25.00

Fashion on a Budget- Graphic Tees

Fashion and BeautyRenee DickComment

Who does’t love a good graphic-tee? I swear that is all I own these days! In today’s Fashion on a Budget series I am sharing where I find my favorite graphic-tees for less. They do not have to cost a ton of money to be cute! The best part about them is you can style them up or down, I can pair one with a blazer and pumps or casual it down with some leggings and sneakers. Either way graphic-tees should be in your closet! I usually creep on the like to know it app to get ideas. Usually they are more expensive and unless I can’t live without it, I am not paying a ton of money for a tee that I most likely won’t wear very long.

Revolve $125.00

First picture is from Revolve.com and is $125.00 This one is so cute and can be dressed up or down. I like how soft it looks and if I were going to wear it by itself with no jacket, then I would recommend it.

Since you know me, $125.00 was not my ideal price for a shirt. With this in mind I started searching to find another version.

Seek and you shall find! I was in Forever21 when I saw this gem hanging on a rack. They only had a small left but I did not care, this was going home with me. With Forever21 you never know what type of fit you are going to get. One shirt that is small can fit perfect and another be a crop top. My advice when shopping there is to try everything on if possible.

Forever 21

$9.90

To my surprise the small was a perfect fit. I was so excited to get it home and piece it all together with my outfit. With a little bit of patience you can always find some good pieces at Forever21.

Fashion on a Budget- Blazers

Shop Bop $88.00

I headed to Dallas, Texas for a conference. This meant find all the cutest outfits possible. I was going to be around a ton of adults so mama was getting dressed up for this shit. I wanted to find a cute white blazer to wear since they are back in style. It is in the middle of spring so the white just seemed so perfect. Mother nature didn’t think so and decided to thunder and lightning the whole trip but it’s good I still looked cute. Blazers can be tricky because the fabric has to be good, otherwise they can look cheap really fast. What I look for is a thicker fabric, the thicker the fabric is, the sturdier the jacket will look, aka more expensive. Depending on the type of look I am going for I either choose one with embellishments or one with a simpler style.

I saw this blazer on Instagram and immediately creeped to find it. I wasn’t to mad at the price because it is very cute, but I had a feeling I can find one for a little cheaper. I swear I should be on that crazy coupon show, I have way to much fun finding deals.

The first picture is from Shopbop it is $88.00 which isn’t to bad, It is super cute and a great option for sure!

Vici $32.00

The second picture is from VICI and it was on sale so I scored, it is sold out now but I still wanted to show you the option. This one was originally $64.00 but I got it on sale for $32.00, if you like something on Vici’s website try and wait a week or 2 because it always goes on sale. I get most of my staple pieces and dresses from Vici, their quality is amazing and always on trend.

How to Style White Skinny Jeans!

Fashion and BeautyRenee DickComment

Ahh is there anything better than a fresh pair of white skinnies? Well, I think there is. High waisted! Can I get a hallelujah? High waisted is the holy grail for sucking in all the goods. They don’t give you that muffin top when you sit down and are way more comfortable than the low rise.

My go to brand is American eagle, the style I love is next level stretch high waisted jegging. I buy that exact style in every color. They always fit the same no matter what and also come in huge variety of styles, also wait until they have sale, usually they have 30% off online or they do buy one get one half off. I’m all about a deal!

Here are my favorite ways to style white skinny jeans!

  • For a casual look I will take a printed tee or graphic tee that is a little less fitted and pair it with sandals or sneakers depending on the weather and activity. Throw my hair in a top knot and be on my way

  • For a dressier look I like to add in a body suit or a fitted jacket. A body suit gives the look more of a tighter more put together vibe, I will usually choose a solid color for this, I like to keep the patterns for more of a casual look. The jacket can be any type, Moto, denim, or tweed depending on the activity. Then complete the look with a cute heel, booty, or wedge.

You really can’t go wrong with a good pair of white skinny’s. They are the perfect piece to have for spring and summer, or if you live in California year round! What are your favorite ways to style your white jeans? Share below so we can all get new ideas!

Casual and Cute Park Outfit

Fashion and BeautyRenee DickComment

Jean shorts, graphic tee and sneakers. Follow that up with 80 degrees on a Saturday and you’ll find my happy place. Weekends are usually spent with my boys outside.

It’s so hard to find that casual outfit that isn’t ya know, to casual. I know I always want to be comfy but also still feel like I tried.

A fun stylish pair of sneakers are always my go to. Obviously, I would love to wear cute wedges or a cute heel but that is just never going to happen for this boy mama.

Vans are always the best when it comes to the perfect casual shoe. I normally go straight for the platforms but the pink sparkle had me hooked!

Pair those fun sneakers with a band tee and your not only comfy but trendy! Total confession, I own 5 Rolling Stones Tees… no, I do not listen to them, they just really nailed it with their logo.

I am always on the hunt for new sneaker ideas so if you have any that you are currently loving share them in the comments below!
