Off the shoulders is one of my favorite trends for Spring. I think it is so flattering and flirty. I’ll take it in a dress, I’ll take it in a shirt and I’ll definitely take it when it’s a romper. I usually pair off the shoulder pieces with flirty earrings but I cannot stop obsessing over this white hat & pairing it with everything I own. 

On a side note, last night I was laying in bed scrolling through Insta, duh, and I was feeling so discouraged. Girls with brand new Chanel flats, Chloe handbags, a wrist full of Yurman. I was thinking there is no point for me to blog, ‘Why would anyone want to look at my pictures when they can see these gorgeous pieces that I cannot afford?’ but then I remembered the real reason I started blogging. It wasn’t a career move, it wasn’t to receive free items, it was to inspire girls on a real income. I am 22, some weeks I can barely afford dinner much less $1,200 shoes. I wanted to share my favorite trends on a real budget. I have learned the most important part of blogging lately, this is not a place to compare yourself but a community to grow in. 

I just wanted to share a little of where I’m coming from. I have exciting projects planned and I promise to stick to my original goal, new trends and pieces on a twenty-something budget.
