I’m not the type of person to go out and buy “trendy” clothing. (I’m still regretting the ripped jeans from high school!) It’s not that I’m against trends, I’d rather just not spend a lot of money on something that will end up at the bottom of my closet in a few short months.
And sometimes I just want a cute dress for an upcoming event without spending too much money. I’ve received a million (okay, not quite a million but over 30) questions regarding dresses on a budget. I was on the hunt for cute dresses that weren’t your typical Forever 21/H&M frocks. And then my co-worker showed me a website and it was like hitting the jackpot. (Meredith, by the way, is definitely one of the funniest people I know. That girl can whip up a story in no time and is teaching me all sorts of pop culture references because I must be living under a rock.)
Anyway, apparently Meredith was googling something and stumbled on LuLu’s. Yes, some of the dresses are a little on the skimpy side… and some are a little to teeny bopper… but there are definitely some gems in there!!!
This dress is just beautiful. I love the mint and I love the cut and I love the fabric. It’s perfect for the spring and can transition into the summer. I think it would be really cute with a simple blazer of it and a pair of nude pumps!

Wearing vs styling an outfit with a bump! I feel so much better when I’m wearing something cute (dress well to feel well maybe?)… I’ve been fighting the temptation to wear comfy clothes while pregnant though! So far I have found blazers and cardigans an easy way to dress up my second trimester bump, especially as we enter fall.
Fall for me means tailored blazers, touches of corduroy, and cozy sweaters… @jcrew, as always, has us covered with all the classics! Shop my head to toe look with @shop.ltk #liketkit https://liketk.it/4iOR7 #injcrew #ad
When @beaconhillbooksandcafe lives up to the hype and THEN SOME 🐿️ ✨ I got a little tour of this special bookstore from the owner herself and I couldn’t be more grateful. There is something magical about any bookshop, but when one is this thoughtful it’s hard not to fall in love with reading all over again. @sisterparishdesign textiles, @farrowandball coordinating paint, bestsellers & classics commingled on curated shelves. A little squirrel mascot named Paige, with her own story and her own entrance and her own little Boston-inspired house hidden away in the bottom of a shelf. Every detail is perfect, especially those on the children’s floor, where little ones can enter through a tiny door and press a big red button to activate a model train that circles the space.
