Best Spring 2018 Dupes

You know, honestly, I’m not sure that even if I could afford a $1000 plus handbag if I’d actually even spend the money on it. Okay, okay, maybe if I won the lottery and had unlimited funds I’d splurge on a couple real designer handbags. However, that’s unfortunately not the case right now and there’s really no point when you can find such amazing dupes out there. I’m a fan and consumer of fast fashion trends, wear it one or two seasons then sell or donate it, that I love the fact that I can find and buy a designer dupes. Yes, while it is not going to be near the same quality as the designer version, if it still hits my normal standard of quality and looks pretty freaking close to the design, I’m sold. Keep your scroll for all my current favorite handbag, shoe, jewelry, and clothing designer dupes.

Oh Hey Vacay {My Cozy Travel Outfit + Travel Essentials}

I typically don’t publish blog post’s over the weekend but Thursday night I promised a full travel essential blog post for y’all on Friday. Unfortunately life happens and our first born fur baby, Brantley, needed our attention these past two days. After a visit to the doggie ER we found out that he has a serious UTI and bladder stones, which thank goodness are both treatable by antibiotic and prescription CD dog food which will help to minimize and dissolve the bladder stones. We are so very very thankful that it wasn’t something much more serious and that it will hopefully be an easy fix. It’s not fun watching your usually fun, full of energy, excited, happy, and goofy dog not be themselves and instead be in pain – it’s quite awful. Erick and I adopted Brantley when we were dating in college before we were even engaged, 3 years before actually. Brantley turns 6 this May which I had already been thinking about often and with friday night’s event, it made me realize just how fast time is flying by with our sweet Brantley. I wish so very badly that dogs could live to be 100 years old, it just isn’t fair. Here’s to giving all dogs, young and old, the best and healthiest lives full of love and care that we can give them.

isn’t he the cutest? okya okay, let’s talk travel essentials and outfit details now shall we.

Wine Weekend in Hermann, Missouri

Happy Monday y’all! I spent the weekend in Hermann, Missouri with my fabulous mother Susan and best friend Ashley. Yesterday was my mom’s birthday and I wanted to do something special and fun. I’ve always wanted to go to Hermann after hearing so many good things about the cute little german town known for their many wineries and breweries. From the amazing Aveda Elemental Nature Philosophy massage at Hermann Hill Inn, to our adorable little cottage we rented for the weekend, and the many fabulous wineries – I’ll definitely be taking a trip back soon.

Who doesn’t love a good dupe

with fashion evolving and changing literally every day it’s hard to keep up when you don’t have the same budget as an a list celeb. for that exact reason i seriously love a good dupe. fast fashion is just that, fast, and you don’t always want to shell out the money and invest in a shoe you might only wear for one season. when i was shopping at target over the weekend i couldn’t help but notice almost every shoe they have right now is a steve madden dupe. now, if you don’t mind spending the close to $100 on a sm shoe every time {which there’s nothing wrong with, you do you!} you might find it super annoying that they’re knocking them off. but in reality everyone’s knocking everyone off and steve madden themselves are copying a bigger designer name brand – it’s truly all a trickle effect {reminds me of my favorite scene from the devil wears prada where miranda explains the blue sweater!} i’ll have it be said that i’m a huge steve madden fan myself and own many of their shoes. anyways, if you’re into dupes and saving a penny or two keep reading for all the deets!
