staleys top five


I love leopard, anything and everything leopard! Earlier this week, I saw this gorgeous leopard bag by Tibi but didn't love the price, so I found some cheaper alternatives that are just as fab!


Just a random group of some fun jewelry I've had my eye on lately. Bold and colorful-just the way I like it!


A simple and necessary staple for summer are flip flops - and I absolutely LOVE them! From designer to the cheapies and in between - I could own dozens of pairs!

Jenna Dewan Look for Less <$105

I love stripes and I love the wide-legged bell bottom jean trend, so I am loving this totally seventies chic look from Jenna Dewan. So easy to put together but so fab. I wish it wasn't cold here today or I would totally be trying to recreate this look!

top 15 under $100 - week 26!


What do you all think of the 'nerd glasses' look? I have long worn prescription glasses (I'm blind as a bat) so glasses always felt more like a necessity than an accessory.  But I have to admit, some girls can carry this trend so adorably... and these reader glasses are all super cheap!  What do you think?


For Spring, I've been really into hats especially fedoras and floppy hats. Here are some of my favorite hats!


I have a pair of fun metallic sandals on my radar, and there are a number of great affordable options out there. These are all under $50!

January Jones Look for Less, < $130

I absolutely LOVE this January Jones look... this completely epitomizes spring style right now. A little retro and very casual chic. And while the photo doesn't show her shoes, I picked some that I would naturally pair with this outfit.
