CELEBRITY LOOK FOR LESS: KARLIE KLOSS’ DENIM DRESS

CLICK ON ITEMS TO SHOP

I had to recreate this Karlie Kloss look because I love absolutely every piece and many of them (if not all) are items that I would love to own. Hopefully, you feel the same way! Denim dresses are so in and will continue to be so during the summer season. I love how Karlie styled it for a casual look, and I also love that it could be dressed up with a killer pair of pumps. I have wanted the pair of sneakers that I used for my recreation for weeks now. I may need to pull the trigger soon :-) The surprise element of this outfit is the backpack. Such a cool addition to her look. So excited to having found a similar one for such affordable price. Lastly, as you probably know, I love sunglasses and these orange mirrored ones similar to Karlie’s are only $10! Must have!

As an anecdote, I’d like to share that Karlie’s dress is $168, and this entire look is also $168! But you get much more for your money!

Thanks for stopping by!

CUTOUT TOP WITH SHEIN

I am so excited to share this cutout top with you gals, because it is not only super cute but also it is only $18.99 ! As always, I like to recommend you versatile pieces that can be worn multiple ways, and this top is no exception. I chose a total black look because I find the top to be kind of edgy. However, it could be used with a feminine A line skirt and even with a pencil skirt with really cool booties. You’ve probably seen this bag in many of my Instagram posts, because I use it non-stop. It is from Steps New York. They do not have an online store, but check their Instagram account to ask for ordering help via phone or email 😉 Their prices are fantastic and their inventory is always on point. I have been obsessed with caged sandals for a while now, and these ones from Makers Shoes are just so awesome. Best part, they are also very comfy and can be worn when running around town! I am also linking a few more options for affordable caged sandals below. I am also loving the shade of the lipstick that I am wearing and use it often with very subdued makeup and as a pop of color. Lastly, I added a mixed metals Sira&Mara bracelet that is made of mesh which makes it very comfy and lightweight.

Thanks for stopping by!

MOTHERS DAY GIFT GUIDE

CLICK ON ITEM TO SHOP

Mothers Day is around the corner and it is time to treat those mamas in our lives. It could be your mom, or any woman in your life that is a mother (bestie, sister, etc…). And what better way than with super pretty dresses, awesome swimwear and yummy perfumes? The two perfumes I recommended are among my faves, and they are totally worth the splurge.

All the dresses that I selected are under $50 and there is a style for everyone! The white maxi is so goddess-like and I cannot believe it is under $40! I also adore the purple bodycon for those women in your life that, like me, love body hugging dresses. The pink tank dress is a total must-have and can be worn year round combined with denim jackets and adding boots when the weather gets colder. Use it with gladiator sandals and a cool fedora hat during the warmer months. Do I need to say why you need the stripes maxi? Well, stripes are SO in and this is another one that is so versatile and can be worn with a denim jacket when the weather is cooler. Always try to get pieces that you can wear during several seasons!

Now let’s talk about the swimwear. For those mamas in your life going on a getaway, I have found, hands down, THE BEST SITE FOR AFFORDABLE SWIMWEAR. I am beyond obsessed with the styles and the prices! Suits and one-pieces for under $15? Yes, please!! The one-piece with big green leaves and plunging neckline went immediately in my wish-list. I honestly want them all, but I am specially into high-waisted bikinis like the floral one. Stay tuned for a post rocking both styles.

I hope that you found some great picks to the mamas in your life!

CELEBRITY LOOK FOR LESS: OLIVIA PALERMO

CLICK ON ITEMS TO SHOP

Another celebrity look for less and another repeat! When it comes to style, there are so many looks by Olivia Palermo that could be recreated that I thought, why not? Especially, because she is wearing an off-the-shoulder top, which is super trendy right now. A few days back, I linked my fave affordable ones on my Instagram account, and today I found yet another adorable one that won’t break the bank. I have been eyeing those floral flats for a while now, and I think that they are super versatile and chic. Worth spending a few more dollars on them, if you ask me! The colorblocked handbag is super cute, affordable, and trendy, so I am glad that I found one similar to Olivia’s.

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed that today I introduced affordable menswear to my feed. A male friend of mine encouraged me to do it, and I happy to see that it has been very well received! It is definitely a challenge, as I obviously do not spend hours a day browsing through men’s websites, but I love challenges and it was so much fun to put this first look together.

Thanks for stopping by!

SAILOR SHORTS WITH BANANA REPUBLIC

Banana 2

Banana 1

Hello, my darlings! I am almost sure that you’ll love this post, because these shorts are so dreamy! I love that they are high waisted – which makes them very comfy – and that the fabric is thick enough to hold anything that need to be held, yet light enough not to be to warm. I will be wearing them constantly this summer! I paired my shorts with this basic tank that it is a must! You’ll get so much use from one of those, that you should probably get several :-) I recommend to size down if you like your tanks to be fitted, and I am wearing a size XS. Lastly, used cognac accessories because they go with absolutely everything. Both items are from other season, but I also love these sandals and this bag.

WEEKLY WISH LIST – RED EDITION

CLICK ON ITEMS TO SHOP

If you love red as much as I do, this week’s wish list will be one of your faves. As you above, it is PACKED with red goodness and, as always, prices are on point! I love all my picks, but my favorites are:

  1. The asymmetrical dress. I love the cut and the glittery details. Such a great dress!
  2. The caged heels. Well, what can I say? The style is so trendy right now, they are red (which is one of my fave colors), and they are under $20!!!
  3. The cold-shoulder top. I love that the cut is pretty basic, so it can be dressed down, but the cold-shoulder detail gives it edge to dress it up.

Happy Friday and thanks for stopping by!

CELEBRITY LOOK FOR LESS: ALESSANDRA AMBROSIO

CLICK ON ITEM TO SHOP

The very 1st celebrity to make a second appearance on Style Pledge is Alessandra Ambrosio and I am sure that you know why. I already featured this look for less from her a while back, and I had to recreate this one. She is SO effortlessly chic, which is absolutely important to me when choosing looks to recreate. I like recreating looks like you all would actually wear, and this one is so on point.

Am I the only one that had a skirt just like that like 20 years ago? I guess I just aged myself incredibly :-) Fashion, as my mom says, is cyclical and this is a great example. Buttoned suede skirts are all the rage right now, and I found you this one that is super affordable. If you did not keep one before, make sure to hold onto this one. They will continue to come back! What I am not sure will last very long are lace-up flats, so that is why I would recommend not to spend a lot of money on those. The ones I found you are only $25! I am sure that you have seen similar handbags everywhere, as a look alike for the Chloe one. Since we don’t all feel like spending that kind of money on a bag, these $25 is just perfect to get a similar look.

Hope that you enjoyed today’s post. Thanks for stopping by!
