Save vs. Splurge – Vacation Edition

Hi babes! I have a trip coming up, and have been non-stop looking for some cute outfits and items. I have been obsessed with finding some cute kimonos for the beach, bikinis, and some more cute vacation items. I fell in love with the Valentino sandals, but couldn’t justify spending $345 on them, and knew I had to find a cheaper option/dupe. Thanks to amazon, I did!! I am sharing a few of my other save vs splurge ideas for you gals <3

The White Lace Mini You Need In Your Life

Even though summer is over and they tell you not to where white after Labor Day, I tend to break the rules and still wear white. The weather is still warm, and some people live in weather that stays warm year round and white is always a good option to have!

This weekend, my husband and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary. A year ago Monday, we said I do in front of our family and friends and it all still feels like a dream. This has been the best year of my life and I can’t wait to see what the future brings for us! But anyway, I wanted to dress in white for our anniversary dinner and couldn’t wait to where this little white dress again! It’s so pretty and perfect for a bridal occasion or just to where out!

The heels I paired it with are Stuart Weitzman, which are an old pair that they unfortunately no longer sell. To accessorize, I wore a diamond necklace, the beautiful diamond earrings my husband gave me as a wedding gift, and a light grey/white clutch.

Would you wear this outfit? Let me know in the comments below!

Happy Friday! Hope everyone had a wonderful week. It has been quite a busy one for me. As I have mentioned before I am an auditor that works for a public accounting firm and our crunch time is currently happening. I promise I will be even more active on here as well as my instagram once this craziness is done!

I have posted a few items from SheIn a bunch of times and have received a lot of questions about their website, the clothing quality, and sizing. So, I figured I would do my top 20 favorite SheIn items that I am currently crushing on or have to help you guys out.

I have been shopping here for over two years. I absolutely love their clothing and can find a lot of things a bit cheaper on here than on any other site or store. Let me give you the run down on sizing and details of orders:

  1. Sizing – I never order my usual size in the US unless the measurements line up. Depending on the clothing in the US I could be a size Small or Medium. On SheIn, sometimes I am ordering a size L. I suggest looking at the measurements below every size and seeing what size is your actual measurements before buying anything. I always look at my measurements compared to their sizing and buy based off that. Sometimes the sizing matches up perfectly, but other times it does not.
  2. Material – I usually never purchase items unless it has at least 5 reviews. That way I know the material is worth the purchase. I have never purchased anything that I did not like material wise! I would suggest buying things that have reviews so that you know it is good. See below for the return policy.
  3. Return – Even if you do not like something, you can return all items other than lingerie, swimwear, and items like that. I have actually purchased a few things with no reviews because they are new on the site and loved them! You do have to pay for the return shipping but it is worth it.

I have the white/black scalloped bathing suit in a medium and it fits perfectly and it is super cute! I also have a similar hat to the one pictures that I bought from here that is no longer available but the sequins do not fall off and it is made very well. Lastly out of this list, I just perfect that cute little bag, and cannot wait to get it!

I hope this post helps! If you have any other questions about the site, please let me know. I would not post anything I did not truly believe in or was not 100% honest about. I absolutely love this site and their items! Happy Shopping!

My gorgeous husband is making his debut on the blog today!

I wanted to talk about this white dress because I love it. I purchased it for wedding-type activities and had decided to save it for our honeymoon, and I am really glad I did. This dress is insanely gorgeous and so comfortable. I knew I wanted to take pictures while we were on our honeymoon in Bali, so I made sure to pack some white items for the occasion.

The fit of this dress was TTS. I am wearing a size medium here and it was actually a little loose on the sides. I knew I would be eating a lot so I didn’t mind the looseness. The off-the-shoulder aspect of the dress just adds to it’s beauty along with the lace detail. I have linked the details in the images and have also linked similar dresses above.

These photos were taken in Uluwatu, Bali which was insanely beautiful, and by far our favorite place in Bali. We stayed at the Anantara Uluwatu Resort in an ocean front suite. The resort/hotel itself are on the cliff side over looking the ocean. All of the restaurants at the hotel had views of the ocean like pictured above. Bali was one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen!
