Hey girls, hope you’re all enjoying this short week. There are two things I want to cover in this blog post. First, I am over due for an Instagram Fashion Round up. I know you guys love them, I mean c’mon its about those cute Instagram #OOTD’s. They are also great because I go a little more in depth about sizing and fit. Second, many of these pieces are affordable or under $75 #chaching! This Instagram fashion has me going pompom, gingham, tassle crazy (and many other things). You can click on the underlined link and it will take you right to check out. Summer is right around the corner, and you are gonna want these pieces in your closet. Shorts 40% off until June 4th | Top Similiar Here nd Here | Neckerchief | Daniel Wellington Watch These are my current favorite shorts. I wear a 24 and these fit perfectly!! They cover my butt checks, which is a must, especially when you’re a Mom. This top is sold out but I have linked two similar options above. The neckerchief (which I dont think I can pull off) gives some extra interest to this basic look. This top(under $25) also in dress version | Shorts | Cutest Baublebar Earrings 3 Colors | Hinge Shoes This top definatly showcases the bell sleeve trend, I mean c’mon! Go big, or go home, right!! When I saw this I knew it wouldn’t be my everyday top, but still couldn’t pass it up. If you are like me and live in your white denim, these Abercrombie high waisted shorts are it. Abercrombie sizing works great for me. I am between a 23 and 24 and the 24 fits spot on. Rose Top 40% off also come in Blue | Target block heel (so comfy)| Article of Society Jeans Under $60 I know how tired you must all be from hearing about my love for Target shoes! AHH! But you better not let these babies pass you by, for the comfort and price you can’t beat it. Like I had mentioned in my previous post, these jeans are actually cropped but work perfectly for my 5’2 frame. Nordstrom half yearly sale ends June 4th so get on it! Pom Pom top Under$25 | Target Heels | best $60 jeans| The famous PomPom clutch, Blue What is not to LOVE about this picture?! I know you guys liked it because it was my second most liked pic ever. The top is from last summer, but still available. I mean, if OTS and Pom poms dont scream summer fashion, I dont really know what does!! These cute little bikes are under $120 and I promise you, I will be cruisin for a bruisin all summer long on ONE! Weekend sweatshirt | tassel earrings under $7 | distressed jeans (dupe for the Levis) | Converse Some days you just want to be comfortable! This sweatshirt is comfy and cute. I mean its OTS, so right there that’s something. If you dont own a statement earring, what the heck are you waiting for? These ones are light weight and under $7. I had my eye on the Levi’s from the Shopbop site, however I have a hard time with Levi’s sizing. When I saw these similar ones on American Eagle, I snagged them quick (another favorite place for jeans) Express Denim Skirt | Chloe Dupe Under $30 | The frilliest trendiest Blouse | Steve Madden Wedges| Sunnies I dont have much to say about this look, except it screams summer Fashion! Denim skirts are a trend I am loving(post here). I am always looking for a great dupe, and this target purse reminds me very much of the chloe I have been eyeing (but cant afford). When I saw this bag, I called up my blogger bestie Kelsey from ChasingCinderella and two where purchased in record time. Bp Maddie Mules & Under $25 Dupe | Leopard clutch that EVERYONE NEEDS These shoes have been everywhere. It took me awhile to find them in my size. I am happy I did, but had wished I had sized up a half size. I have seen many loepard clutches I love with a hefty price tag, but this one is only $45! Ruffle top | The BEST white jeans | Target Block heel (Must have) | clutch (sold out) but even Cuter HERE This top is ruffles at its finest. I loved the way this top looked on other bloggers, and had to get it. White jeans can be tricky, cause ain’t nobody want their pink undies showing! These are not too thick, not too thin and super flattering. Who doesn’t think white denim when it comes to summer fashion. Express Dress | neckerchief | and again……Target Heel (swear I own other shoes) Brian picked out this dress for me for Mother’s Day, I guess he knows his stuff, because I am loving everything about it. The neckerchief trend is big, and I have actually wore it recently a few times and kinda loved it. Here I just tied it on to my purse to bring some interest to my rather boring black bag. Pom pom Top & one Here | Abercrombie jeans | wedges under $60 | Clutch Here and Here| Earrings This Pom Pom top got a lot of loving from you gals, and its still stocked in ALL sizes. It is cropped, so size up if you want it to be longer. The skinny jeans are from, SURPRISE Abercrombie and fit like a glove (skin tight glove). Well, I think I have offically purchased every pom pom OTS top that is out there, so you won’t be seeing any more for a while. This was a fast four day week, I hope for you all also. This week has been hands down my most proud week as a parent. I want to elaborate on it more in a later post but I will tell you the jist of it, My son Mason was honored by the GPD and the Mayor for his selfless act to donate $900 that he raised instead of birthday presents to Cops for Kids with Cancer. Second, my youngest sister (who I have raised the past 3yrs) walks the field tonight. Next year she will attend UNH. I know I make many wrong decisions as a parent, BELIEVE ME. However, this past week I knew I had done something right. Now get shopping some of these great summer Instagram fashion finds. Xo~ SHOP MY POST!
