$45 Top Worn Two Ways

When I’m shopping, my sweet spot is under $50 for a top.  I don’t love spending more on a top unless it just totally blows me away.  I think it’s because tops are often memorable, whereas a great pair of skinny jeans can be worn 100 times without ever noticing.

This top is $45 and is my favorite trend: off-the-shoulder.  Although this floral print is sold out, it’s still available in black or white, which are great options all year long.  First, I styled this tunic with white jeans and booties.

BP. Off the Shoulder Tunic ($45!)  //  Hudson Skinny Jeans  //  Dolce Vita Garim Wedges (sold out!); almost identical boots here (40% OFF)  //  Sole Society Crossbody (two other colors available)

This tunic easily doubles as a mini dress.  If you are worried about length, size up to give some extra fabric at the hemline.  BP. brand typically runs large and I wear an XS, but I could’ve gone with a Small to make this a little longer as a dress.  I love the look of this top paired with over-the-knee boots for a sassy date night look.  These Steve Madden boots are under $100 and are perfect dupes for the highly coveted Stuart Weitzman tall boots.

Fresh New Life Goals for Spring

At this point, I’m as tired of apologizing for my absence from Hello Gorgeous as you probably are of hearing my “sorry’s”.  After a very transitional past two months (actually, more like past year) we are finally back home in LA and in our new home.  Here’s where the plot thickens…  We’re in a basically empty new home.  Someone had the bright idea of starting from scratch with the furniture since it was a new space.  Hint: it wasn’t Matt.

Anyways, I’ve been knee deep in wood, linen and rug samples, and quite honestly, I’m enjoying every second of it.  We’ve been in design mode since we arrived back home.  It’s really perfect timing when you think about it.  Personally, I associate Spring with fresh starts, new goals and clean slates.  Yes, that’s what New Years is all about, I know, but I never seem to really get motivated to start things up until the temperatures start to warm up.

I wanted to do a check in with my Gorgeous Girls about fresh, new goals for 2017.  Many of you set goals on January 1st, but many of your goals have changed in the past few months.  This is a great time to reassess what you realistically want to achieve over the course of this year.

What are my goals for 2017?  I’m so glad you asked!  I want to focus on our home.  I want to create a space that is warm, inviting and cozy.  With all of the traveling we do, I want our home to be our haven.  When we return to our house, I want to walk in the door, take a look around and uncontrollably sigh out of relief to be there.

I also want to make my health a priority.  I have barely exercised at all of the past year.  Honestly, it’s embarrassing.  Heart disease runs rampant in my family, so I can’t afford to not take care of myself.  I’ve been running with Matt the past couple of weeks and started doing yoga at home.  My goal isn’t to lose weight, but to be healthy and toned.

I try to make healthy choices about my diet pretty consistently (of course I like to splurge as well) but I want to buckle down even more this year.  I plan on including more fruits and veggies in our menu.  I share a lot of my recipes on Snapchat and Insta-Stories.  I recently posted a Healthy Breakfast Ideas YouTube video, so check that out if you missed it.  Let me know if you’d like to see a blog post or video about what I eat in a day or what’s in my fridge, as well as more recipes.

I plan to be more consistent with scheduling time for my daily devotions as well.  I have to remind myself that my body is my temple.  God gave me only one body and put me in charge of caring for it.

Let me know in the comments section what your goals are for the rest of 2017.  I’m considering sharing some of my home design process on my blog with y’all, so let me know if you’d like to see some of my design inspiration.

We spent a few days last week in NYC.  I’ve tried to count how many times I’ve been to NYC and I believe it’s been about 10 times now.  During all of those trips, I had never made it over to the beautiful Macy’s store in Herald Square, but this trip I finally stopped in.  I never realized what I was missing until now!  The store is seriously breathtaking.  I was blown away by the gorgeous window displays and floral arrangements all over the store.  It was such an awesome experience.

I grew up shopping at Macy’s.  Our wedding registry was even at Macy’s!  It has always been one of my favorite retailers.  Because I’m such a frequent shopper, I’m always on the look out for new finds.  My favorite find recently has been CeCe Clothing.  I love their designs and choice of beautiful, bright colors.  Their pieces are great quality and selection is always fabulous.  This floral tie-neck dress couldn’t be cuter for Spring!  I paired this dress with hot pink pumps for the perfect pop of color.
