Ready for fall //

August 29, 2018

Ok so we get it, we live in Florida where the fall season really isn’t a thing. Nevertheless we love fall trends! It’s always around this time of year that we’re ready to share our must haves for the new season (here and here). We try to incorporate pieces that can transition from these sweltering hot summer temps and work for the cool down we (fingers crossed) will receive.  Continue Reading

Date Night // OOTN

August 23, 2018

With the weekend just around the corner we are ready for cute Saturday night outfit inspo! Whether you’ve got dinner & drinks planned, or casual daytime fun, we have the outfit for you.

We are partnering up with Chicwish to share some super cute date night looks! Chicwish has seriously become one of our favorite online shops-they have the cutest dresses & tops.

Dressy Date Night

This gorgeous little black dress is perfect for a dressy night out! It is the nicest quality and I love the sheer polka dot details. It would be the perfect dress to transition into fall because the sleeves are long, but sheer.

     I styled this dress with some black lace up pumps and blue earrings for a pop of color, but you could even keep it classic with a pair of nude heels.

Casual Date Night

If you have a more casual date night planned or even a day date, this top is for you! Tee fell in love with the bell sleeves and the cute tie details. You can never go wrong with blue & white stripes!

Tee styled this top with some distressed denim and nude flats, but you could totally dress it up with a pretty skirt and heels! Once some cooler weather kicks in, it’ll look great with some dark denim and nude ankle boots. Such a versatile piece!

We’d love to hear your upcoming weekend plans!

Event Ready with Chicwish

July 31, 2018

After my closet reorganization post I’ve really been trying to ‘shop’ my own closet. I feel like it is so easy to have an event come up and feel the need to go out and buy something new. It is nice to have a versatile dress in your closet that you can just grab for an upcoming event. You know it will work for so many different weddings, parties, showers, or date nights and you don’t have to run out and buy something last minute!

Today we’re featuring two gorgeous dresses {that won’t break the bank!!} and will carry you through all your upcoming events, from summer into fall!

Both of these dresses are from Chicwish, a women’s clothing brand featuring some of the most beautiful dresses ever at affordable prices {can i get an AMEN?!}. I’ve always seen Chicwish dresses on Pinterest but never really took the plunge. I wasn’t sure if they’d be as gorgeous in person, but they seriously are!

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.

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!

Some of these jumpsuits are an extra 40%

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.

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!
