I am a big fan of Spring. My birthday is technically the first day of Spring, so I’ve always felt a special connection with the season haha. The weather is warm, but not too hot, flowers are blooming, and Reese’s Eggs are lining the shelves of Target.

The other day I was online shopping and found sooo many cute and affordable Spring pieces! Even though the weather is currently not cooperating with the Spring vibes, these pieces will seriously put you in a Spring mood.

Every single one of these pieces we are sharing is UNDER $30! So no guilt when shopping. I mean I want everything, so a little guilt, but updating your closet on a budget is the best way!

We have a ton of picks so we broke everything down by category:




Some of these jumpsuits are an extra 40%





Let us know which pieces are your faves!

We’d love to hear if you purchase anything from the post and would love if you shared how you styled it!



Twist on Valentine’s Day

February 9, 2018

We’ve all got go-to Valentine’s Day looks looks under our belt. Classic red, pink, or black dress for a night out. Fun girly heart printed sweater for a Galentine’s day celebration! All of the aforementioned options work for a reason-they’re festive and look great on. But we wanted to switch up our looks this year to put a fun twist on Valentine’s Day.

Last year we featured these pastel Valentine’s Day looks which we loooved. This year we went with pieces that reflect the fun festive feels of the Holiday but are a bit different! These looks would work for a night out with your boo or a fun Galentine’s day celly.

Winter Coat Time of the Year!

December 18, 2017

We’ve been lucky enough to have over a week of cold temps here in Florida!  So, Kat and I are trying to wear all of the coats we own at least once because we know this weather will be gone before we know it.

 Plus, coats always seem to amp up my outfit and make me feel all fancy even if I wear them with a tee, blouse, or sweater! Continue Reading


Cold Weather // Casual

December 14, 2017

Sweater weather is upon us!

I know some of you reading this are currently experiencing snowy days and negative temps, but over here in Florida we are experiencing “winter-ish” weather of our own, haha. When the temps drop down to the 40’s us Floridians definitely begin to bundle up. You know we are not prepared for this type of cold!

We have styled two casual, cozy looks for you regardless of your current city’s temps. If you’re in a warmer climate like us, you can definitely warm up my look with a jacket or coat.

Tee’s look is cold weather ready!

Staple Suede Jacket // Worth the Splurge

October 22, 2017
both suede jacket looks

Now you know here on Fashion without the Fortune we are all about affordable fashion. But sometimes you come across a piece that is so timeless and wearable that you know it’s worth the extra money. This jacket is definitely that piece.

This jacket was part of the Nordstrom Anniversary sale this year and even with the sale price we weren’t sure if we should spend the money. Tee took the plunge and bought the gorgeous gray shade. It is so perfect for the cooler Fall nights and can be styled in so many ways!

DIY // Embroidered Patch Denim Jacket

October 16, 2017
embroidered denim jacket

Denim jackets are a wardrobe staple for us. They can be dressed up or down and come in so many different colors and styles.

The patch denim jacket has been popping up everywhere, from reaaally expensive versions (YSL has one for $1,250) to basic trendy versions you can find at Forever 21. Now back in High School I loved patches. When a pair of my favorite jeans started to have tears and rips, I threw on some vintage patches to solve the issues. My favorite part about adding patches or pins to a piece of denim is that it can totally be personal to you.

I like that brands are coming out with affordable versions of the patch denim jacket, but I feel like the fun of having a jacket like this is to make it personalized.

I scored this denim jacket from Forever 21 during one of their flash sales. It is aaaamazing quality, was $8, and is a men’s xs so it fits a little bigger which I love. There were already patches on it (two-thirds of which I hated) and a cute embroidered detail at the back. I figured I could easily remove the disliked patches and personalize it with my own finds! I left the rose patch and cut the other two off the jacket.

Styling Stripes [day & night]

August 13, 2017
styling stripes for day and night

We love a good classic print and for us stripes are a staple. A timeless style for all ages. We often hear people say ‘I can’t wear stripes-they’re unflattering!’ to which we say YESSSS YOU CAN and no they’re not!

Often times people misjudge that the stripes themselves are unflattering, when really it is the cut of the top, dress, or pants. Stripes have come a long way from the basic striped T. There are so many gorgeous pieces out there featuring the classic print and we’re styling two of them for day and night.

Tee loved the style of this cute v neck T! Instead of basic black and white stripes, it has the cutest reverse striped detail on the sleeves and back. It is also super flattering on and only $5!! I mean $5?!

Bralettes are a staple piece in our wardrobes. They can be styled so many different ways and are super comfortable! Their pretty, delicate details can amp up a normal look while still being functional.

Why do we love bralettes so much?

-they can be worn with low cut tops or dresses

-add a delicate, girly vibe to a look

-they can be shown off in a backless top or dress

-they can be worn under a sheer top

-look great with off the shoulder tops and sweaters

-take the place of an actual bra

Now a lot of ladies have asked us how can a bralette take the place of an actual bra?

If you’re like us, on the smaller chested side of life, a bralette can offer just the right amount of coverage and support. If you are in need of more support we have found so many amazing options at Kohl’s for you!

Their bralette selection is serious!

Keep reading to see how we styled these three neutral bralettes for Summer.
