It’s time for the BaubleBar Friends & Family Sale! A 25% savings with code FF25 makes it the perfect time to stock up on spring jewelry. I’m eyeing these knot earrings, cascading floral chandeliers, eye-catching flower earrings, and these modern hoops.
I’m not going to shut up about this dress anytime soon. Can you blame me, though? For $49, this wardrobe workhorse is the number one item you should add to your spring shopping list. The basic, no-frills shape makes it incredibly versatile. I’ve worn it just like this for work, with sneakers, and to an evening event with my favorite Lele Sadoughi necklace (this one). I love the dress so much that I also ordered the pink one to try. It ended up being kind of sheer, so I’d recommend sticking with the classic black option. (Going with the tried-and-true classics is my favorite budget-friendly tip. It’s hard to tell if something like a little black dress is a cheap thrill. Inexpensive prints and brights typically look cheap, so I save up for pricier versions of those.)

Bass shoes (old; similar here and here, plus these for a splurge) | Lele Sadoughi pendant (old; similar and I search eBay for budget-friendly vintage finds, like Trifari pendants) | Monica Vinader ring (similar) | Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses (old; similar)
I recently purchased this $49 little black dress and I’ve been overjoyed with how versatile it’s been. I’ve already worn it to a cocktail event, to work, and I’ve been playing dress up with my new gingham clutch (a steal at Target!) while dreaming of warmer weather to wear it in! I’ve put together four outfit ideas for styling this dress in the coming months, and kept the colors neutral because there’s a good chance you already have similar basics in your closet. One quick note about the fit: the dress runs true to size if you have slimmer hips. I went up a size to give myself a more comfortable, looser fit around my hips and thighs.
