My Recent Online Order + Answering Reader Requests

Happy Monday, all! This weekend I had a sick little one, so we just spent the whole weekend home with her as a family. It was one of those fever viruses, but she’s all better now after sleeping in her mama and daddy’s bed all weekend. 😉 Thank goodness! In between many a Frozen rerun in bed and her sleeping her virus off, I went through and started to sort through my spring clothes. I used the rest of some Christmas gift cards and ordered a few new pieces! I wanted to informally share those today, just so you could get an idea of what’s been in my shopping cart as most of these pieces are pretty affordable and these sell out so quickly! One hard issue with blogging affordable finds {not all of these are but some!} is that their lifespan in terms of stock can be around 7 days. So if you order online, shoot, and blog- well, it’s already out of stock! This isn’t all of the time, but I do find it to be the case a lot- so I just wanted to quickly share these pieces below. Some are transitional pieces as it is still FREEZING and some are great for spring into summer. I’ll share them on Instagram as they come in and if they are in stock, I will blog them! But this way when you see me style them throughout spring on Instagram, you know the source.

My favorite of the batch has to be this half zip, the boots, and the flatforms I know I’ll wear all spring. I gave so many pairs of shoes to my sister this weekend {RIP hot pink Jimmy Choos} because I just can’t envision wearing them ever again! Even when date night comes around, I want some form of wedge because I’m so used to having Maxi-friendly shoes. Anyone else in the same boat?!

If you are looking for some affordable pieces for spring, look at this boutique! I’ve shopped it for years and always think they have some of the best finds that you don’t find at other similar shops.

Remember this dress from October? This is another find from their store and they have it in a lot more shades now! I’m wearing the size S and it is $44! Would look perfect with the flatforms. You can probably tell by sizes left their items sell out rather quickly, but here are some other dresses they have that caught my eye!

Reader Requests

While doing some online browsing this weekend, I found some products to answer some recent reader request e-mails! I figured I’d share with y’all in case you were searching for these items, as well!

Hey Katey! Where are your white mules and cropped jeans from?

My cropped jeans are from the end of 2017 and I can’t believe they haven’t been restocked. :/ However, this is probably the most similar pair I have found and the price is phenomenal in comparison to the ones I own! My white mules are by the brand Matisse.

I love your Chips & Salsa sweatshirt! Where is it from?

My Chips & Salsa Diet sweatshirt is an old Wildfox buy. It’s totally sold out everywhere, but I found a similar one on Etsy for half the price.

I want the look of Rockstud shoes, but not the price! Any suggestions on something similar, but not totally identical?

Of course! The good news is, now that spring is closer, you’ll see a lot more studded options to get your edgy fix! Here are some that caught my eye.

I remember you having a Rebecca Minkoff studded bag! I loved it because I felt it was so different than the Mini MAC bags. Do you have the link for it?

Yes! This is the Rebecca Minkoff Blythe bag– it is sold out pretty much everywhere {boo!}, but I found it in stock below.

What brand are your gold mule shoes?

I feel so bad because if you e-mailed me about this last week, I couldn’t find the gold ones and I just did! These are the Roper Mule and I couldn’t find the gold anywhere- but finally, they turned up and for 45% off no less. 🙂 Shop them here.

Any suggestions for must-have bags under $100?

I have a few options just dependent upon your needs!

  • If you want something for work, I love this tote. Now the chain may not fair well if you are in a more formal corporate setting, but for most, I think this would work!
  • If you are in need of an everyday tote, this is my pick. The print is reminiscent of Goyard or the Tory Burch Gemini Tote, so it’s still unique, but will last longer than most rends.
  • What about a crossbody for the weekends? I’d go with cognac as that works all year!
  • If you want a clutch for a night out, this one is great under $20. I hate to splurge on bags for rare occasions, so the price is perfect in my opinion!

I hope these sources and affordable finds make your Monday a little easier. 😉

    I love reading your blog, thank you so much for sharing. I was wondering where your jeans are from? The ones that are distressed, the very first picture where you are holding Maxi and wearing a black top with the bell sleeve.

  6. Hi Katey!
    I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for posting all your great finds all the time. I absolutely love your style and I have been searching for a great pair of gold shoes to wear unsuccessfully until I saw this post and immediately bought the gold mules! I just got them in the mail today and they are EXQUISITE!! Can’t wait to wear them. And for a GREAT price too since they were on sale. I feel like Cinderella!!
