Little Pink Number

This bright pink top caught my eye not only for the bright color, but the adorable “flutter” sleeves. It’s flirty and fun and on clearance so hurry and grab yours from Banana Republic Factory Store. It pairs great with simple jeans, white pants, or a patterned skirt. It’s the perfect Spring/Summer staple. 
This necklace is EVERYTHING right now. It has the MOST sparkle, two adorable tassels at the clasp, and……..It’s gold. It’s also from Banana Republic Factory Store, however, it’s sold out online (cue tears).  It may still be in the store! So, while your purchasing the cute blouse, go ahead and buy this piece of statement jewelry!

Spring Decorating

This gold baroque frame immediate caught my eye. Then, I saw the price and knew it was a sign from God that I needed it.  At just $5.00 this frame is perfect to add a bold, unique, flare to any room. Although it isn’t available online, I purchased it from a local Walmart.  It also comes in several different colors! 
I am a journal-er. I love writing things down, making lists, planning my day etc. I love it even more thanks to this gorgeous pen from Hobby Lobby.  As you can probably tell by now, gold is my favorite color.  It’s the perfect accessory.  
Pineapples are a popular item this year. They are super cute and tropical and make great decorations.  I found this cutie from Target. It doubles as a fruity candle, which makes it just like Summer in decor item!
Finally, I came across this adorable jewelry holder from Hobby Lobby. It’s so perfect to hold my daily jewelry essentials in.

OOTD

I got the kimono from Rugged Warehouse last year. A similar one can be found here
 Black tank is from Forever 21 and it comes in several colors.

I purchased mine from Belk. It is super difficult for me to find a good pair of white jeans, but these are great! 
Sunglasses are from It’s Fashion Metro and were very affordable. Here’s a similar pair. 
I wore these earrings from Cato and shoes from Target in my previous post, but I love them I thought they worked great for this look!  Here are similar earrings. 
See you next time! xoxo, Stacie

Five Under Fifty

Today on The Heart and Soul, I challenged myself to put together a five piece outfit for less than $50.00. Keeping up with one of my favorite trends, I’m tossing in a pop of color. This look is super transferable and is perfect for any and all Spring and Summer festivities! 

I found this edgy, army green dress by Japana at TJMaxx. I love it because #1 – it is army green and #2 – it has pockets! Nothing makes me feel more secure than a dress that has pockets. It runs true to size and is super affordable at just $16.99.  Here is a similar dress, also from TJMaxx.
As many of you know, Target has a way of trapping you and convincing you that you NEED everything in sight. Well, I didn’t buy everything in sight, but I did purchase these chunky heels on clearance for $17.48. They were originally $34.99 so I think I can forgive Target for using their magic on this one! 
This next accessory adds the perfect amount of bold color and Spring-time flare. They mimic the shape of a dream catcher, have adorable beading and are gold so I automatically love them. They were also less than $4.00 at Cato so they were definitely added to my collection. Here is a similar style from Cato as well.
Hats make any outfit bold and unique. I have been searching everywhere for a Panama hat to wear this Spring/Summer. None really grabbed my attention until I found this one at the City Market in Charleston. I loved that I would always have a part of the city with me and when I wear it I’m reminded of the great time I had! The price was the selling point for me. It was only $10.00. You read that right. Most of these hats retail for more than $20.00 so I was so excited to find this deal. A similar hat can be found here!
Rounding up my purchases I’m tossing in one last accent color with this coral polish by Sinful Colors in the shade Hazard. Even without a base or top coat this polish last FOREVER for me. It dries fairly quickly and goes on so smoothly. It’s way cheaper than most nail polishes too. I paid $1.50 at the drug store. Bravo Sinful Colors! 
That rounds up Five Under Fifty and I must say, I’m proud of myself for staying under budget and only spending $49.86!

My Favorite Accessories

Now that the weather finally feels like Spring, I’m going to fully embrace the azaleas and sunshine and talk about my favorite Spring-time accessories. I’ve been drawn to vibrant pops of color, tassels, and pearly whites. In true Stacie fashion, the majority of these accessories are look-a-likes for designer products and are extremely affordable. Enjoy!

For starters, this quilted white flap bag is a great alternative to a popular Chanel bag. It has a gold chain strap that can be worn two ways. I picked it up at It’s Fashion Metro for only $19.99. It’s a steal considering the Chanel bag can retail for almost $4,000.00! I can live with saving that much money! The best part is, It’s Fashion Metro carries this bag regularly in several colors and prints. 
The next accessory might not be what you expect, but I am in LOVE with it! As a dance teacher I am constantly having to stay hydrated. I purchased this Hydro Flask because of its claim about keeping drinks cold and hot for long periods of time. It is seriously the best thing in the world. At less than $25.00, I might get one in every color! It keeps my water cold the entire time I am at work. The company also gives five percent of every purchase to charities. How great is that?!
I purchased these sunnies at H&M while I was in Charleston, SC on a vacation. I fell in love with them immediately. They closely resemble Dior’s line of sun glasses that are extremely popular this Spring. At less than $10.00, these are very affordable. I love the mix of round and wayfarer styles on a clear frame and the mirrored lenses with a vibrant pop of blue. Although they are not an exact look-a-like for Dior sunglasses, they are a close second. H&M never fails to offer unique and affordable accessories! 
Tassels are probably my favorite trend so far this year. I think they add an element of fun and youthfulness to outfits that may seem boring or drab. When I came across these adorable beaded earrings at It’s Fashion Metro, I knew they would be a staple in my collection. They are the perfect, affordable alternative to designer tassels that can cost upwards of $300.00 At only $7.99, you can guess why I am swooning over these cuties! 
The last accessory that I am wild about this Spring are these super comfy tangerine colored sandals by Sanuk. Comfortable doesn’t begin to describe these shoes. I made this purchase impulsively after walking around Charleston for hours with shoes that were NOT great for walking. They are just over $50.00 and something I will wear often! The yoga mat sole makes my soul excited for this gorgeous weather. Thanks Sanuk for making these angelic sandals! 

Thanks for reading! xoxo, Stacie
