Hey girl! I know the last few years have been hard. We haven’t been able to do a lot of the stuff we had dreamed & planned for. I hope this year you get to take that trip you’ve been waiting for, and that you get to wear the most amazing outfits that make you feel incredible!! BOOK THAT TRIP!! Even if you can’t go far, let’s check some things off of our bucket lists this year! We all deserve it after everything we’ve been through. This post is dedicated to a few of my favorite vacation wear finds for my trips this year!
Hi babe! Welcome back, today I’m sharing a TON of options and finds for wedding guest dresses. I know how hard it can be to find the right dress so I’ve included different lengths, styles & colors below. Whether it’s a backyard wedding or a black tie formal there’s options for you!
One Shoulder Slit Dress – probably my favorite dress on this list. The trendy one shoulder is so beautiful. The side slit is just enough to where it is still classy and you’re not going to flash anyone.
Emerald High Low Dress – I cannot get over how BEAUTIFUL this dress is, the cut is to die for. It also comes in navy.
Lavender Bodycon – I love the rushing on this dress, it’s very forgiving. My one note is it’s kinda hard to get on and off because there’s no zipper & the length isn’t quite as long as it looks on the model.
Black Sheath Dress – IM OBSESSED WITH THIS DRESS! It looks so beautiful on and makes you feel like a million bucks. Love the pleating & asymmetric hem. This sleeve length is great if you’re like me and sometimes feel self conscious of your arms.
Long Sleeved Maxi Dress – such a beautiful dress, I love the side slit. You definitely want to wear a slip or spanks because even though there’s 2 layers of fabric it’s still so light you can see through it.
Mauve Purple Midi Dress – such a flattering beautiful dress. Fits TTS, again I love the pleating. Double-lined through the chest but not see through at all.
LOVE IS IN THE AIR!! Christmas is over, the New Year hype is here & Valentine’s is fast approaching. Date night, Galentine’s or at home with babies, whatever you have going on this year for Valentine’s Day I’ve got you covered + accessories to go along with it!
32 oz. Hydro Flask – I love this monochromatic grey hydro flask, I just ordered it for myself. Comes with straw lid & flex boot to protect it!
Nike Sweatshirt – comes in 7 colors & all colors on on sale! I love that because even the good colors are on sale not just the less popular ones.
Steve Madden OTK Boots – these are such a great price point for over the knee boots. They are such great quality beautiful boots & the suede fabric is super soft. Obsessed with the pointed toe and flared blocked heel.
Free People Ruby Jacket – I’ve been wanting this jacket for awhile, but I’m sure you know along with the FP name comes the price tag, but this is such a great deal! The 2 colors on sale are indigo & dirty olive.
Half Zip Pullover Sweater – I’m loving this half zip sweater & big collar trend. Comes in quite a few colors, hem is not quite “cropped” but it is shorter and falls in line with your waist.
Baublebar Smiley Bracelet – I can’t handle how cute this gold beaded stretch bracelet is! Only $12 & would make such a great gift for a GF!
Philosophy Bubble Bath & Shower Gel – there are certain season products I love to buy & this candy cane bubble bath is one of them! I’ve already taken a few candy cane baths this year. Smells amazing and the gel is so luxurious feeling. Would be a perfect stocking stuffer too!
ABH Brow Freeze – This product has rave reviews & is the one product you need to create feathered brows.
Mac Lipstick – Blankety is by far my favorite year round lip color. It will go with anything & is the perfect nude.
Cropped Criss Cross Back Sweater – This sweater comes in multiple colors as well as color blocked options. I love the detailing on both the front & the back of this sweater, It has a twisted front and lace up back. Cropped length would look great with a high waisted pair of denim!
Side Slit Turtleneck Sweater – I’m OBSESSED with the side slit detail on this tunic style sweater. It’s plenty long to wear with leggings. Truly a beautiful sweater for a holiday party or date night. 10 different color ways.
Cable Knit Turtleneck Sweater Dress – Another great date night option is this best selling dress. Pair this sweater dress with a cute scarf, a pair of tights & over the knee boots to stay warm! This sweater comes in tons of colors including a dark maroon red.
Corduroy Button Up – These have been so popular this year & work great for layering up. Would look cute paired with denim, leggings or even a leather skirt! Plenty of other colors to choose from.
Flannel Button Down Plaid Shacket – I LOVE how this shacket looks when paired with the faux leather leggings (linked below) + a pair of combat boots. This jacket has 4 pockets – 2 hand pockets & 2 chest pockets. If you want an oversized fit, size up!
Turtleneck Sweater Asymmetric Hem – This looks like such a high end sweater, I’ve seen on so many people and styled many different ways. With the asymmetric hem you can always pair it with a layering tank underneath and wear it with leggings & lug boots or dress it up with a leather skirt & over the knee boots.
Cropped Corduroy Jacket – This button down cropped corduroy jacket has been a staple piece this year. I love the pockets on the front & the cropped length that fall just perfectly when paired with high waisted denim. It comes it a few colors including this blocked version with plaid.
Layer Up Tee from Free People – this is such a great layering piece for the fall! The Free People version has cuffed sleeves which adds just a little bit of detail & dimension to the shirt. The dupe for this shirt I found from Forever 21! Both long sleeved shirts have the slight v neckline detail, the FP version does have a curved hem & is more an off white while the F21 has a straight hem & is true white.
FP Queen of Hearts Oversized Tee – the FP version is sold out in every size but XS right now. I found a dupe on Buckle’s website for only $37 less than 1/2 the cost & it’s in stock in every single size!! The Buckle version seems like a cream shirt & a more distressed print while the FP version is a color they’re calling sand. Both have ‘Queen’ written down the sleeve.
Free People Dolman Jacket – this jacket was such a huge hit last year & it’s back again this year!! I linked a Forever 21 version that you guys loved so much, but it’s always sold out! Target just came out with one & I’m obsessed + it’s only $40! The FP version has 3 color options right now while the Target jacket has 8. Both have a quilted design with pockets & cinched elastic waist in the back. The main differences are the Target jacket has a hood & the pockets are on the outside of the jacket while the FP are inside & has more of a collar without a hood.
Free People Summer Daydream Buttondown – I found a great dupe for this buttondown on Amazon, almost 1/4 the price! These shirts are pretty dang identical, the Amazon version comes in 11 colors and the FP version comes in 9 colors.

Hi friends, I wanted to share this jacket that I’ve seen EVERYWHERE recently. My Instagram feed has been filled with multi colors (5 to be exact) of this adorable knit quilted lightweight jacket from Free People that is to die for. It’s no question Free People has a reputation for creating beautiful high quality clothes, but they’re also known for having a spendy price tag.
Which leads me to this amazing quilted zip-up dupe I found recently at Forever 21! It’s almost 1/4 the price and equally as cute! Both are on trend this season and will transition well between seasons! Main differences : zipper detailing on FP is gold, F21 is silver. FP jacket is distressed. F21 jacket has a hood. Pocket placement on each jacket is slightly different. Do you prefer the splurge or save option!?
*UPDATE – I found a 2nd option for a dupe that I like EVEN MORE than the Forever 21 Version & it’s from Target! Only $40 & such great quality. It is VERY similar to the Forever 21 jacket, both have hoods, diamond style quilting and pockets on the outside. However, the Target jacket has an elastic wrist detail & more distressing like the Free People version that gives it the vintage lived in feel. Target also has a lot more color options (8) & they have frequent restocks.
