 DETAILS: LACE CROP TOP ( WEARING SIZE SMALL)  || MIDI SKIRT ( WEARING SIZE XSMALL – SHOP THE SET HERE) || BLACK BLAZER (SIMILAR SALE VERSION HERE) || BLACK HEELS (OLD – SIMILAR HERE) || BLACK MINI CROSS-BODY BAG (ALSO HERE)

If the term “matching sets” still brings to mind the female power suit, think again! This season’s collection of two-piece sets is the epitome of feminine and flirty, incorporating everything from crop tops to sheer stripes. A matching set with a skirt is a fresh take on a dress, perfect for everything from a spring date to a night out (love this flirty black one) . I also love the idea of a matching set with joggers for weekend errands. To really take advantage of the most that matching sets have to offer, don’t forget to split them up! Both pieces can also be worn as separates, meaning it will work overtime in your wardrobe.

XOX,
Christine

lightweight button up is one piece guaranteed to get more than its fair share of use this spring – you can wear it with almost anything. I love this grey and white gingham top I got from Life is Good. (For the next 48 hours, get 30% off with discount code: LIGHELLO. From a brunch date to a beach stroll, a button up works for just any occasion and, in a classic and versatile print, it does double duty by adding instant detail to an ensemble.

Below are a few of my favorite button-up combinations perfect for any occasion, from casual to chic. Whatever your taste, it’s a great piece to wear in a variety of ways to make it you.

  • Skinny jeans and heels are the answer to everything! (well, mostly ;) A classic gingham print against white denim is a crisp combo perfect for occasions that call for something more sophisticated.
  • That half-tucked button-up into boyfriend jeans combo (boyfriend shorts, too!) is a no-brainer. Dress it down with some sandals or sneakers and a baseball cap for a casual weekend vibe.
  • Take your button up full feminine by tucking it into a full mini skirt. Transitioning the look from day to night is as easy as unbuttoning another button or two.

DETAILS:  PAISLEY SUMMER DRESS (WEARING SIZE SMALL) || SUEDE BOOTIES (SIMILAR HERE | LOVE THESE) || CELINE HANDBAG (NOT SOLD ONLINE – SIMILAR HERE | LOVE THIS STYLE UNDER $100) || SUNGLASSES || GOLD CHAIN WATCH

We have had the best weather in Utah the last few weeks it feels like full on summer! The upcoming warm weather months are full of occasions that call for the perfect dress and there’s no time like now to start the hunt! Once you find the unicorn of all dresses  – comfortable, flattering, and confidence-boosting – the only thing that might stand between you and the cash register is the price tag. Fortunately, there is a great selection of budget-friendly spring dresses right now in so many styles, patterns, and colors. Here are some of my favorite casual weekend dresses all for under $100.

The Printed Dress: Love this printed dress I got a couple weeks ago. It would look great paired with a coin necklace and white fringe kimono, or you could do a basic denim jacket. I love it by itself though too!

The Perfect Comfortable Dress: Nothing better than a comfy dress and sneakers (just got these). Hello weekend! I’m obsessed with this T-shirt dress also crushing on this subtle stripe drawstring dress. I’m debating between the pink and white or white and grey. Which color do you guys like better?

The Little Black (CASUAL) Dress: How cute is this crochet black mini dress. I need this for the beach.

The Maxi under $50: A solid color maxi is a spring/summer must have. Choose a universal color that can get it’s wear. This one is on sale right now. I got a grey and black one from this brand last year and loved it.

Tune in tomorrow for a his and her look plus a $500 giveaway!
