Currently Loving

style on a budget, currently loving, spring style, mom style, north carolina blogger

Happy Friday! Whew. This has been a long week! Super busy at work, PTO fundraising, and my husband has been out of town for work. I am so ready for the weekend so I can get my house back together and have some fun with my family!

Today, I'm sharing my weekly round up of items I am currently loving. Over half of my picks this week are from Forever 21 and are super affordable! I often forget to check out what they have but they always have some hidden gems that are super budget friendly.

1. Flare Leg Jeans | I get kind of bored with my usual skinny jeans so I love finding cute denim that are a little more fun. I love the flare leg detail of this pair!

2. Leopard Sandals | These great sandals are already on their way to me! At less than $16, I couldn't pass them up! Leopard is a neutral and I know I will get so much use out of them!

3. Tie Front Top | I have a super similar top that was over twice as much as this one. I love the one I own but I think I need this budget friendly pink option as well!

4. Straw Bag | This is another item that is currently heading to my mailbox! I absolutely love straw bags, especially for spring and summer so I knew I needed this one that can also be worn as a crossbody!

5. Key Chain | I really believe this key chain is a mom must have. I am always digging through my bag to find my keys but this neat ring makes it so much easier to quickly locate your keys plus it's super cute!

6. Striped Shirt | I love stripes and I love pink so that's what this top immediately caught my eye. I think it would be so cute paired with high waisted jeans and wedges for spring!

7. Polka Dot Top | When I was a kid, my grandma had a box of her old clothes for my cousin and I to play dress up with. This box was in her spare bedroom and I remember spending hours trying on her clothes and accessories to create outfits. One of the pieces that I distinctly remember was a brown and white polka dot dress. As soon as I saw this top, it reminded me of those sweet memories of playing dress up in her clothing. Beyond the nostalgia, I love the colors, print, and cut of this top!

8. Scalloped Shift Dress | This little black dress is such a classic! I can't get enough black dresses! This one can be dressed up or down, depending on your occasion.

Thanks so much for visiting! Have a great weekend!
