Cat Deeley Look For Less < $125

I fell in love with this gorgeous shade of lilac as seen on Cat Deeley.  I thought I wouldn't be able to find a dress in a similar shade-but to my luck I did! And one that is on clearance for $65 at that, so swoop one up if you like it.  I think it is the perfect dress for upcoming Spring festivities.  I also took some liberty with the shoe selection, as I'm not a big fan of the black sandals that Cat is sporting.  Do you like the gold heels I picked better?

top 15 under $100 - week 19!


The geometric House of Harlow ring was my inspiration for my top 5 grouping this week.  Loving this color combo of tomato red, gray and nude.


This week I have been loving this kind of "Equestrian Chic" look. I have thrown together a classic riding look with riding boots, riding pants, an oxford button down and a blazer. While I don't ride horses, I definitely wouldn't mind wearing this out!


I'm seeing denim in fun and bold colors every where lately it seems. What a fun look to carry us out of winter and into spring!
