what i wore: pretty in pink


 

dress: Old Navy (also seen here)  |  necklace: Etsy  |  earrings: Target  |  belt: H&M (taken off a skirt)  |  watch: Timex  |  shoes: Payless (similar)  |  sunglasses: Ray Ban


















































I think this might be my new favorite dress! I was never a huge fan of the neon trend, but when I saw this dress on the clearance rack at Old Navy, I figured...why not, it's only $7.99!?!  Once I tried it on and added a belt, I knew I'd get a ton of use out of it. From work, to evenings out, to the weekend...I love it!

Also shown above is one of my new "bubble" necklaces from Etsy. I'd wanted the J. Crew version for what seemed like forever, but there was absolutely no way I was going to pay $150 for a piece of costume jewelry. After reading on a few other blogs that sites like eBay and Etsy had J. Crew "inspired" versions, I went ahead and bought three colors, all for $15 each...that's a 90% savings!!!

Have any of you found any great deals or "inspired" pieces lately?

xoxo,

  4. Super cute dress and it looks great with the black accessories. I found two JCrew inspired bubble necklaces at Kohl's. They are Apt. 9 and both were less than $15. Now I am on the hunt for a red or orange one! Heather
