I’m sure by now you’re aware that pumpkin spice everything has officially taken over. I’m guilty of already having quite a fair amount of pumpkin coffee and I’m not mad about it in the slightest. I am SO excited for fall because not only is the fashion amazing and the food to die for, but I love the cozy feeling, chilly weather, and fun activities πŸ™‚ There are sooo many fun things I have planned to do this upcoming fall season, but there are also a few fashion items I have my eye on that I’m dying to get! Here are some of my fall wardrobe wishlist items!

I wasn’t sure about this trend at first, but now I am completely in love and I want to own every single pair. I think mules/loafers are a perfect fall shoe, especially transitioning into the fall from summer!! They are so easy to pair with any outfit to make it look chic and trendy! All of the shoes featured in the image are from Vici!

This is a no brainer. I think that every gal and guy has an abundance of sweaters in their closet waiting to get broken out once the chilly weather arrives in full. Even though I have plenty of sweaters, I always want more. There are always new styles, colors, fits, and designs that I want to try! Right now I’m loving the look of oversized slouchy sweaters that are the epitome of coziness. I cannot wait to wrap myself in a big, chunky sweater and buy as many as I can afford lolol πŸ™‚ All the sweaters featured are from Love Street Apparel (one of my all time fave online stores!! It can be a little bit pricy, but buying pieces here and there doesn’t hurtΒ πŸ˜‰).

I think it’s safe to say that Mom Jeans are my new favorite style of jeans. They are relaxed, comfortable, and super trendy. They make an outfit look effortless yet put together. My favorite place to get some good mom jeans is Asos, but American Eagle, Forever 21, and other great brands sell awesome mom jeans as well! I love that this style of denim goes with sneakers, heels, flats and every shoe in between. They are a staple for fall, and I’m yearning to own more pairs!!

Being a “poser” is something I never want to be presumed as. But when it comes to band tees, that’s a different story. I think an oversized band tee is such an effortless, chic way to make an outfit look trendy and fun. So screw the people that criticize you for wearing the tee of a band you don’t listen to, because if it’s cute and sold at a store you love then you deserve to wear the heck out of it. All of these tees featured are from Forever 21!

Red. Like the infamous T-Swift album, red is the color of Fall 2017. I’m going to be honest and say I’ve probably only owned three red articles of clothing my entire life, but I am excited to incorporate it into my wardrobe this upcoming season. It is definitely out of my comfort zone, but fashion is all about exploring and testing out new things!! Here are some adorable red pieces I found at Asos!!

There ya have it! These are just a few things I’m looking forward to trying out this fall! What are some things on your wardrobe wishlist?? Let me know in the comments, I would love to know and maybe add them to mine πŸ™‚

Sup babes! In the sticky summer months frizzy hair is Β inevitable, so haircare is extra important. I love the look of healthy, glowing hair, and with these products I can achieve that! The best part about these products is that they are all under $20!! If you haven’t tried these out yet I highly recommend you do!

Β My hair is like my child. I take pride in how it looks and taking care of it is something extremely important to me, especially in the summer. I recently discovered this amazing brand, Eva NYC. I can’t believe my hair has managed to survive without it tbh. Not only do their products make your hair feel and look magical, but they are a company based on women empowerment and the duality of real women. And their products smell freakin’ INSANE. Like if I could bottle the scent and make it into a perfume I would in a heartbeat. And guess what, Eva NYC is more accessible than ever because their products are now sold at Ulta!! Make sure you head to your nearest store to pick up these goodies πŸ™‚ Here are some of my favorite products from Eva NYC!!

Therapy Session Hair Mask $14.99:Β When I say to you that this stuff is like a creamy, magical experience I’m not exaggerating in the least bit. I got this product only a few weeks ago and I’m already halfway through it! You can use it as a daily conditioner (which is what I do because I love the way it smells and how soft my hair is afterwards), or you can use it as a hair mask a few times a week and leave it in your hair while you do your shower routine. Either way this product is fantastic and I want a lifetime supply.

Mane Magic 10-In-1 Primer $11.99:Β Since I started using this people haven’t stopped complimenting how amazing my hair smells and how shiny and soft it looks! This super lightweight primer does 10 amazing things at one time. It detangles, nourishes, strengthens, cuts drying time, adds shine, reduces frizz and protects against uv rays. Literally, what more could you ask for??

Freshen Up Dry Shampoo $11.99:Β Generally dry shampoo isn’t my favorite haircare product. For some reason I feel like since my hair is so fine, it never really gives me the volume I’m looking for. This dry shampoo is hands-down the best I’ve ever tried. It makes my un-washed hair look refreshed, clean, and voluminous. Some dry shampoos leave a white residue which is not cute in the least bit, but Freshen Up Dry Shampoo leaves not a trace behind! Another reason I love it so much is the ingredients. Lately I’ve been more cautious about what I put in and on my body, and I’m happy to know that this dry shampoo has natural rice starch instead of talc or aluminum like other dry shampoos. It also has Vitamin C which enhances shine, moisturizes, and strengthens my hair all in one spray!!

Surfs Up! Texture Spray $11.99:Β I try to go heatless on my hair in the summer months as much as possible, that’s why a texture spray is my bff for creating effortless waves! This surf spray is packed with vitamins to make your hair shiny, give it lasting volume, and repair any damage.

Purse Perfect Hair Towelettes $14.99:Β I’m gonna be honest, I haven’t tried this out yet, but it looks like the coolest thing ever and I definitely need to get my hands on it ASAP. It’s the most brilliant thing I’ve ever heard of and I’m surprised more brands don’t make these! When you’re out and about and you feel like your hair is going cray just whip out your Purse Perfect Hair Towelettes and smooth down any frizz or flyaways with the serum-infused wipes! Absolutely a summer essential if you ask me πŸ˜‰

I hope this post has inspired you to give your hair some lovin’ with Eva NYC!! Make sure you head to your nearest Ulta to see all the goodies Eva NYC has to offer πŸ™‚ Leave a comment below telling me your favorite haircare brand! Talk to you sooooon.

Thank you Eva NYC for sending me the Freshen Up Dry Shampoo!! All other products were purchased with my own money and of course all opinions are my own and genuine πŸ™‚

If there is one thing I am extraordinary great at; it’s shopping. I take pride in my skills of saving money, waiting for sales, and outsmarting stores by waiting for that dress I’m dying to have to get its price lowered a little. Even though I like to think of myself as an avid shopper and Queen of Steals I definitely fall into the trap of aesthetically pleasing things that I just don’t need, will never actually wear, or will promise myself I’ll use and never do. Here are the tricks I have learned throughout the years, and some tips on how to save money while shopping!

  1. Can You Dupe It? 99% of the time affordable stores like Forever 21, Windsor, Zaful, MakeMeChic, etc. feature styles that are essentially copycat of more expensive brands. If the item you’re dying to have is way out of your price range, check affordable places for similar styles, and chances are, they’ll have them! Sometimes quality is compromised when you go for cheaper alternatives, but if it’s a trendy item you probably won’t wear more then a few times then no harm, no foul πŸ˜‰ Here is one of my personal favorite dupes!

Zaful Tie-Front Bikini Set: $12.99 vs.Β Frankies Bikinis Greer Set $170

Β  Β  Β 2. Β The Outfit Test.Β This tactic has actually saved me from spending my money on A LOT of things. When I’m doing my usual daily online browsing and see something I love, I think to myself…is this something I can only wear in a certain season? Am I still going to like next year? Will I really wear it more than 5 times? If the answer is no, then I don’t buy it. If the answer is yes then I try to envision the outfit varieties I can make with the piece and really think if it’s worth it.

Β 3. Check Nordstrom Rack.Β Nordstrom Rack is basically the best store that was ever created. I can spend HOURS in there browsing all the amazing deals they have! Whenever I want something from a brand I generally can’t afford i.e. Free People, PAIGE, Wildfox, Jeffrey Campbell, etc. I always check Nordstrom Rack to see if it’s available there for a much better price! Sometimes the exact item I’m looking for isn’t available, but I always find something I like πŸ™‚ Here are some of my faves from Nordstrom Rack!

Β  Β  Β  4. Go to Sale Section First!Β I’ve mentioned this in a post before, but 99% of the time the sale section is where it’s at. It’s very hard to bypass all the beautiful newness a store has to offer, but if you are online shopping it’s much easier, trust me. The first thing I do when I online shop is I go right to the sale section, especially for stores that are more pricy. Don’t think that because it’s the sale section the items won’t be cute. Chances are they’re there in the first place because the store had the items WAY overpriced, and no one in their right mind would spend that. But you were the smartypants who waited for the item to go on sale and saved a buttload of money! Go you πŸ˜‰ Here are some of my favorite places with KILLER sale sections and pricy non-sale items lolol.

Β  Β  Β  Β 5. Plan What You Need.Β If there is anyone on this planet who is guilty of impulse buys it’s this girl. Even though I am on a budget and don’t have $75 to spend on shoes…I do sometimes. But hey, we have all been there at one point or another and I’m definitely working on my problem. To avoid this happening to you though, make sure before you go shopping you know what you need and you only have eyes for that. So when you see those beautiful $200+ purses in the window, know that you DO NOT NEED IT. Unless you like really do and that’s what you went to the mall for in the first place, but you get my point. Try your hardest to only get what you went for and nothing else. It might even help if you only bring a certain amount of cash with you and no credit or debit cards, so once you’re out of money you’re out.

I hope at least one person found these tips helpful, and I could save you some time and money! Let me know if you want more posts with advice like this! I would love to do them πŸ™‚

Happy Summer!! It feels sooo good to be blogging again πŸ™‚ My schedule the past few weeks has been crazy. I never mentioned this on my blog before, but during the school year I’m a preschool teacher and at night I’m a server, so I wasn’t able to focus on my blog as much as I would have liked. The school year is over now, which means more time for doing what I love!! It feels amazing to be able to sit here and type again <3 I’m coming at you with a post I’m really excited about πŸ™‚ So you know how people tend to stalk their favorite celebs and people on Instagram? Well I am also guilty of that…only I stalk the Instagram of little online shops. I LOVE finding online stores that offer unique pieces that also cater to my style! It’s what I live for. When I stumble upon a new store online I become so excited and I want to buy everything. But since I am One Broke Blonde that can’t happen, but a girl can dream πŸ˜‰ An online store that I am currently obsessed with is Love Street Apparel. They seriously have THE cutest things, and they are pretty affordable as well!! I recently caved and ordered some pieces from them and let me tell you, I am in love with what I got. No lie, I’ve received soooo many compliments on these shoes (and the dress as well), that I decided I had to make a post about this adorable shop! The best part? The shoes were only $25!!

I am all about the platform sandals. I used to rock them so hard when I was in second-fifth grade. *Fun fact: when I was around 10 I owned a pair of shoes similar to these, and decided to run around my yard in them and I ended up breaking my ankle. It’s actually not that “fun” of a fact, but it’s humorous to look back on, and I swore to myself that I will not run in these shoes or break any more bones due to fashion malfunctions. On the brighter side though, these shoes compared to the ones of my younger days are incredibly comfortable! I wore them all day long on a day full of picnics and walking around and at the end of the day my feet weren’t aching a bit. They have an awesome amount of support, and the gold rim detailing around the platform is everything. They aren’t too high that it looks like you’re trying to channel your inner disco diva, but they do add the perfect amount of lift to make your legs look long and lean. I seriously can not rave about these shoes enough! They are the perfect summer shoe and you need to get them ASAP. I believe that Love Street Apparel is currently sold out of the shoes, but if you leave your email address they’ll notify you as soon as they go back in stock! πŸ™‚

Shoes | Jumpsuit | Hat (similar) | Anklet | Bralette | Watch
