Splurge vs. Save: Spring Shoes


I interrupt your regularly scheduled vacation outfit posts to bring you another #TargetDoesItAgain roundup (the last one I did was for winter wear). If you're like me and love shoes, but generally only purchase staple pieces because you can't bring yourself to splurge on trendy, I'll-maybe-wear-these-twice shoes, Target to the rescue! Recently, they've really been on their game with offering designer looks for less. 

Without further ado, here are 3 styles I love for spring with their more affordable dupes:

Suede ankle strap heels

Scalloped ballet flats
ChloƩ $495 vs. Sam & Libby $19.99*
(Middle of the road option: Callisto $51)

*I actually just got this exact pair of flats in gold, and they are SO comfortable! They run TTS- I got my standard 8.5.

Fringe lace-up heels
Aquazzura $785 vs. Irene Ghille $34.99

What's your favorite shoe trend this year?

Breezy Maxi Dress

March flew by!! I've been super busy with house/apartment shopping, work, and Enzo's recovery from his surgical procedure early this month. Now that things have slowed down a little, I was able to finish editing these photos from Cancun and give the blog a tiny facelift (let me know what you think!). It has been rain, rain, rain in Boston recently, so I am very ready for sun and spring!

This maxi dress is from last summer, but it was perfect for Cancun- breezy, light, and I could wear it as a coverup or dress it up for dinner.

Off The Shoulder Dress in Cancun


Topshop dress (old, most similar + more options below) | Kate Spade crossbody (similar) | Loren Hope earrings (old, but love her classic style) | Target wedges | J. Crew bangle (similar) & Ralph Lauren bit bracelet (similar)

This day in Cancun we were enjoying our time by the pool a bit too much and stayed out later than usual. Hence the "shoot, the light's gone and we're rushing off to dinner and I just showered but this dress is so cute I'm determined to take blog photos anyway" look. Whoops. It was definitely one of the times I wish I could blow dry my hair!! (Even with a diffuser it usually gets too poofy, so 99% of the time I air dry it. #curlyhairproblems)

The positive of having to take these photos inside is that you get to see a little of the resort's architecture and design! It was almost a mix of baroque and colonial- very grand with lots of details.

I bought this dress last year, and am so happy that the off the shoulder trend gained traction and is big this year because it's one of my favorite silhouettes! I was always afraid to try it because I have broad shoulders, but after experimenting I've found that as long as I get the right cut and size they're easy to pull off.

Two (possibly 3) more posts to come from our trip, so keep an eye out! :)

My boyfriend and I just got back to Boston from a week-long vacation to Cancun and Florida! This outfit is from when we stayed at Riu Palace Las Americas in Cancun. It was beautiful there- and most importantly, free of snow! For a coverup outfit that could take me from the beach to lunch inside, I opted for a simple look based around this breezy pom pom top. 

We're already itching to plan another trip someplace warm... where are your favorite places to travel?
