Let’s get started, shall we?

Number One On My List:

TARGET // EDWINA FASHION BOOTS $34.99

These are practically exact replicas of the $150 Karinta Block heel booties by Vince Camuto! Don’t believe me? Keep on lookin’

NORDSTROM // KARINTA BLOCK HEEL BOOTIES ON SALE $119 // Also Available in Black

I first spotted these from Nordstrom a few months back for $149.95 retail. I obviously fell in love with them because, come on- they’re freakin’ adorable! But $150? Mama can’t afford that so close to Christmas!

They’re now on sale for $119.90- and if you want the name brand I’ve attached that direct link to them above! But if you don’t care about brands- I HIGHLY recommend getting the ones from Target that I linked above!

Number Two On My List:

TARGET | A NEW DAY // VELMA SLIP ON MULES $22.99

I AM IN LOVE with Mules- they’re so comfortable, stylish, and go with everything- And at Only $22 bucks, snatch these up in both Black and Blush. You’ll wear them ALL. THE. TIME, trust me!

Number 3 On My List:

TARGET // AUTUMN BRAIDED CUT BOOTIES $34.99

These beauties are available in both Black and Taupe and the braided detailing is so cute! I’d throw these on with distressed denim and a front tucked plain white tee. What shoe styles are you crushing on for spring? Let me know in the comments, Fashionista’s!xx, Torey Mongelli | Bright Peonies

2018 Spring Accessories: Marble, Blush & Gold Everything!

This house has been CRAZY the past few days- Jeff and I have been SUPER busy with work. Between my blog, My Clothing Boutique and my Stella & Dot Biz I don’t think I’ve kept my head on straight for the past few months BUT I’m loving every second of the madness!

On top of all of that craziness, we’ve been also been redecorating and moving everything around for a new home look. I’ll do a blog post with all of that mess in the future!

Today I had to pop in and show you my absolute favorite pieces from Stella & Dot’s New Collection! Fair warning: You’re about to get hooked.

Stella & Dot | EARRINGS // BRACELETS (linked below) // PHONE CASE (also HERE (pink) & HERE (black) & HERE (light blue) & HERE (blush/floral- SO CUTE!!)

I have to start off talking about these phone cases. They’re ADORABLE and chic- if you’re looking to update your case I’d definitely recommend any of the ones I’ve linked above!

I’ve seen them at ONE target (and I’ve been to quite a few different targets- as I’m sure we all have!) They’re fairly inexpensive and I believe they’re well worth the money!

Bracelets: Stella & Dot | NICHOLETTE STRETCH BRACELET // ANDA STRENGTH BRACELET // ANDA COURAGE BRACELET |

This blush pink, marble & gold arm party will be on REPEAT all Spring! Y’all have been warned! Not only is this stack adorable, but it goes with EVERYTHING! They’re an accessories wardrobe staple.

The amount of different arm parties you can create with these three bracelets is unreal and I absolutely love accessories that have a deep, inspirational meaning behind them!! They also make the perfect gifts.

I hope everyone has a fantastic Tuesday!

Sophia’s Spring Wardrobe List: Number One

After the last North Carolina snowfall, the air has been crisp in the morning and warmer during the day. Is Spring among us? In honor of our excitement, I’ve compiled a list of looks for the start of Sophia’s spring wardrobe and I’m sharing them with you! There will be a “Number Two” to this post so stay tuned for more styles I’m loving!

LOOK NUMBER ONE: Dark Florals & Silver Boots

SIMILAR DRESS // SOCKS // Similar SHOES

I’ve highlighted the shoes I linked before because I’m obsessed with them and believe every mini needs a pair!

Look Number Two: Black on Black

// BEANIE (less expensive) $4 (Also obsessed with THIS ONE) // DRESS (under $15) // SHOES (50% OFF) OR (similar, less expensive versions HERE & HERE) // KNEE HIGH SOCKS (Also HERE & HERE)

This look is fabulous, and thankfully Sophia already has 2 out of the 4 items from this look so I’m not spending a ton of money on it. Black is so chic- yes, even on toddlers!

LOOK NUMBER THREE: Cool, Casual and Collected

DENIM TOP (ALSO HERE & HERE) // LEGGINGS (These are a MUST-HAVE! On sale for $4!!!) // CONVERSE // SHADES (Also loving THESE & THESE)

This look is so effortless and cool. Everyone needs a pair of classic chucks- and I’m so excited for Sophia to get these! They’ll go with so many outfits.

The next part of this post are dresses that I’m currently OBSESSED with. You’ll notice a light pink trend- but I can’t help it. Not only is the color sort of a universal “girly” color, but it’s also the perfect color for Spring!

DRESS NUMBER ONE

Nordstrom Rack | UNDER $20 // SHOP IT HERE //

DRESS NUMBER TWO:

NORDSTROM RACK | UNDER $25 // SHOP THE DRESSES HERE //

This adorable peplum floral dress comes in both Ivory and Mustard and I’m going nuts waiting on them to get here! They’re the cutest little dresses for the season! And how stinkin’ cute are those ruffled sleeves and the key hole back detailing?!

DRESS NUMBER THREE

H&M // UNDER $10 // SHOP IT HERE

I ordered this dress with full intent on it being Sophia’s Easter Dress- but I’m not sure I’m going to be able to wait that long to put her in it.

DRESS NUMBER FOUR

H&M // SHOP IT HERE

These sequins and ruffles are everything! I’ve been searching and searching for the perfect dress for her third birthday party and am so glad I found this one. Gold and pink are perfect together and this dress screams adorable!

There will be an add-on to this post- these looks are just the start of a fabulous spring wardrobe!
