Things I’m Digging Lately Volume 2

Yeah moving on with this work week!  How is your week going so far?  Yikes yesterday was a long one but I’m so excited about today’s post!  You know how I like finding those high end dupes for you and I’m back at it again!  I also wanted to show you how you can wear one piece a few ways so you can really get your full wear out of each piece.  Here are my high end looks for less and things I’m digging lately!
This Hair Oil
Okay so basically the number one reason why I stopped my membership from Birchbox is they kept on sending me so many dang samples of hair oil.  Even when I would change my profile….still would get the hair oil.  I detest hair oil.  It makes my thin hair super stringy, kills all the volume and I hated that greasy layer it would leave on my hands even after scrubbing them.  So basically can you tell how much I don’t like it.  That all changed when I was introduced to this gem from a Sephora sample.  I loved it so much I went out the next day and bought the full size.

Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil
Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil

If you take away anything from this post I’m telling you get this “oil”.  I put a tiny amount in my hands and smooth it over my ends. It makes my ends look so healthy, shiny and does not weigh it down at all.  Also helps tame that flyaway frizz you get from humidity. There was no greasy residue on my hands.  I want to shout from the rooftops about this one.  Hands down the best hair finishing product I’ve ever tried.  I also love when products come in a small size and large.  You can try the small and if you dig it you can commit to the full size.  Definitely the top of my list right now!

This Maxi Dress

Tie Dye Maxi Dress
Tie-Dyed Crochet Maxi Dress

Alright alright…..enough with the maxi dresses I know girls but honestly this one is my favorite so far! The tie dyed maxi is hot right now for the Summer.  If this has been on your radar scoop it up now because I guarantee you it will sell out in a few days (or at least run out of sizes).  It looks super high end and is lined so you don’t have to worry about when that sun hits you……you know what I’m talking about.

I love the scalloped details in the front and its not too low or inappropriate in the front (please ignore my non manicured man hands at the moment).

I tried pairing it with a leather and gold belt and really loved how it glammed up the dress!  You can easily take this to night with some black espadrilles, statement belt and black clutch.

Tie Dye Maxis are blowing up for the Summer!  Check all these high end ones I found and my pick is a fraction of the price! Really great piece that will be on repeat this Summer for sure!  It hasn’t been on the website for long so grab it before it sells out!

Oh and also totally digging this one (the stripes match up don’t worry I checked)

Striped Cutout Maxi

This Shirt 3 Different Ways

Tribal Print Tank

This latest round of F21 online purchase was inspired by this tank.  I saw it and immediately added it to my cart.  I just reminded me of a Mara Hoffman print.


What I loved about this tank is how you an style it so many ways.

Night out with shorts and tall heels.

Mara Hoffman dupe, high end looks for less

Or you can style it all these different ways.  Casual tucked into a black maxi skirt.  Summer look with white pants.  Tucked into a pencil skirt for work.

These Look-alike Chloe Ballet Flat
I was totally in love with these Chloe Ballet Flats but not the near $500 price tag

So onto the hunt to find an affordable price for us to afford!

Audrey Brooke Pierre Ballet Flat


This Kimono

Lace Trimmed Floral Kimono

I mean how perfect is this kimono for the Summer?  Over a little slip dress or throw it over a bathing suit.

This Bra

Commando Bra 

Don’t get me wrong I love my F21 bra I previously gushed about but this bra is true to its name.  I will say it doesn’t have an under wire so if you are more well endowed…..then I don’t recommend it.  If you are a small C and under then you will love this bra.  Pretty much it feels like you are not wearing anything.  It is double layered so helps for those air conditioned rooms. My sister bought it and loves it as well.  This is my go to everyday bra that is insanely comfortable!

This concealer brush

Pro Airbrush Concealer Brush

True story.  I use to just put on concealer with either my fingers or just the applicator it came on.  Until I discovered this brush.  It lives up to its name of being an “airbrush” because it is exactly how you look after using it.  Read the reviews from Sephora…..everyone is singing its praises!

Bloomingdales Private Sale
In case you didn’t find what you wanted over the Memorial Day Sales….Bloomingdales is keeping it rolling for you.  They actually have some great slashes on the high end pieces.

Oh I totally forgot I’m part of a sweet giveaway and today is the last day (hint my two links are follow me on Bloglovin and Instagram).  What things have you been digging lately???  xoxoxo

  4. Oh my gosh I use a different concealer brush and totally used to use my fingers too – but not i need the pro brush you mentioned!! I love when you can wear anything more than one way – and that shirt – love it!!! I’m just not down with oils – they make my hair look greasy no matter which one i use!! And those ballet flats – I love them!!

  5. I can’t do tie dye. We wore tie dye shirts for my mom’s 50th party (60’s themed) and dude… I looked like a busted up water balloon or something. YOWZA! hahaah

  6. Kristen says:

    i dont like tie die and dont think that dress looks cute on the model, but on you?! holy moly i didnt even notice the scalloped details on the model, it is so pretty! i will have to go in the store to try it on for length. its super pretty on you.

    I received all my clothes from Forever 21 last night and thought of you! Although, the maxi dress looks TERRIBLE, but the kimono and cute flowy shirts look great.

    Ive had that sephora concealer brush for quite some time, and it is the bomb dot com. Dont spend your money on MAC brushes, Sephora’s line are just at great at a fraction of the price!

  9. i LOVE bralettes; ain’t nobody got time for underwire uncomfortable bullshit. i only wear them; i get mine from Gap and i’ve been spying on the ones from aerie – they’re lacy racerbacks but i don’t like the price! (

  12. Tami says:

    I seriously LOVE your shopping posts. All of your picks are things I would actually scoop up myself!

  13. Umm seriously loving all of your F21 finds! I almost bought that tie dye dress for 4th of July but then I got a solid blue one instead… you’re kinda making me wish I got that one… :) Love that tank too, hello Mara Hoffman! And I’m going to have to be on the look out for that hair stuff… I’m with you on the oils!

    <3, Pamela

  14. I keep hearing such good things about that hair oil! I think it’s going to be the next one I try after I use up the Josie Maran ones I have! Also love, love, love the scalloped detailing on that tie-dye dress! It looks amazing on you!

  15. Haley Duke says:

    I’m a big fan of bumble & bumble. And oh, how I miss having a Bloomingdales nearby. The closest one is in Orlando, which isn’t too far, but I really miss my old cosmetics girl from when I lived there. Their sales are so great!

  16. I have never ever seen that oil, what?! No greasy residue, I can’t wait to try! Love that dress with the belt and love that tank. I swear, good makeup brushes changed my life haha

  17. Christina says:

  18. I think you are going to inspire a lot of purchases for THAT TANK. Good find, friend!

  19. Jen says:

    Obsessed with that F21 tank! I love how you styled it too. I’m all about finding 3 ways to wear something before I buy it and I would have never thought about the pencil skirt option but I love it!

    You are totally inspiring me to end my feud with F21 and brave the store!

    xo, Jen

  20. Love that tribal tank!! So cute! Also rocking my first ever kimono today, a cream lace one from Hollister, really loving it so far!

  21. alyssa says:

  22. yesss i love these type posts! they are the best!! that maxi dress is really cute, i feel like i have so many but you can never have TOO many, right?

  23. Rebecca Jo says:

    I didnt realize ballet flats were back. I had a pair with the ribbons when I was in high school… 25 years ago!! What goes around, comes around!

  24. Love that maxi dress! It looks great on you. I also use my fingers to put on my concealer, but now I want to try that brush! Hope you have a better/shorter day today!

  25. Wow def need to try that hair oil! My ends have been out of control! Lovvvveee that maxi and the scallop detail! Loving all the ways you styled that top too cute!

    <3 Shannon

  26. I love those scalloped edges and it looks great on you! And I have been trying to hunt down a kimono for a while, I love that one you picked!

    Megan –

  27. I was JUST gonna say… can’t believe gf splurged on a Mara Hoffman piece because it definitely looks legit! Love the tribal print and that maxi is so perfect for just about anywhere. Nice finds, per usual!

  28. Love that kimono and maxi dress! I don’t have a lot of maxi dresses, but they are definitely a summer staple that we all need in our closet I say. And that shirt you found, so cute! I don’t do a lot of patterns, but that one I think I could do. :)

  29. Zelle B. says:

    Loveeeee that maxi. I may need to order that. Pronto!

  30. That Maxi is to die for! I, on the other hand, love hair oil and will most def be giving this one a shot! Thanks girl!

  31. So, I need that tank top. Like, immediately. Your picks always put a dent in my wallet, girl! Yet, I always come back for more. :)

  32. Your taste is so impeccable. I ADORE that ballet flat, and I need it yesterday! Thanks for providing a more cost-effect option! As always, your blog is on point!

  33. Love the tribal tank paired with the pencil skirt – that would be a perfect summer work outfit!!
    And LOVE those ballet flats, so cute! Look just like my old shoes…so cute someone thought to make them like that :))

  34. When everyone was gushing about Moroccan Oil and shampoo, I was rolling my eyes. Totally made my hair greasy. I will need to check out your oil recommendation. And love the ways you styled the tribal shirt- you need to come be my personal shopper/stylist.

  35. i love that tie dyed maxi so much!

  36. brooke lyn says:

    oh hey fun AND multi-useful shirt! too cute

  37. I am maxi obsessed this summer!

  38. Maggie says:

    I love that Mara Hoffman inspired tank!! I actually thought it was MH at first! That maxi is beautiful!


  39. Oh wow, I am going to have to try that hair oil!! I HATE most hair products because they leave my hair so disgusting. When I got my hair done last time, the girl put some kind of hair oil product in my hair and 3 hours later it looked like I haven’t showered in a month… yuck! Those maxi dresses are super cute. I absolutely love wearing them especially to work since they can be a little on the dressy side but still super comfortable. I wear one almost every day. Oh and I got a super cute stripped cut out maxi like the one you posted but from macys… I wore it in Chicago and got so many compliments :) And those ballet flats are so cute. I’m going to check them out right now. Geez this blog post is going to make me broke… haha such good finds :)

  40. I’m obsessed with those ballet flats too EXCEPT I first saw the cheaper version: Jessica Simpson makes them for $70 I’m still debating whether or not I want to buy a pair because sometimes her shoes are super uncomfortable…but they’re SO cute!

  41. Krystal R. says:

    I dont even know where to start. Love the maxi (altho I most def cant wear it, boobs will be out and blinding people in 3…2…1 ..) Also loved how you styled that top in three different ways. Loving the shorts option the best but all three look great! I watched the bra and then looked and my babies (boobs) and said … nope. lol I love this series of yours keep it going!

  42. That oil has gone straight on my wish list – I think I can trust a girl living in Florida to adequately test out the humidity factor. I have fine, naturally curly hair so that’s a big deal! I’m using the Alterna Bamboo hair oil right now and I love it but I’m always down to try anything new!

  43. Ok, I have to try that oil!!! I was just whining this weekend about how humidity is KILLING my hair this summer and my hair is way too thin for any of the heavy duty stuff.

    I LOVE that tie dye dress!!! So pretty!!!

  44. Joey says:

    THOSE BALLET FLATS!!! I need them! I have itty bitty baby boobies so I also need to get my hands on that bra!

  45. You always find the best maxi dresses! Seriously! I really love a piece that you can style so many different ways! Love it! :)

  46. The tie dye maxi looks fabulous on you!

  47. that maxi dress looks better on you than on the model! for realz.
    oooh! and you should do more posts on how to combine one piece of clothing to make different styles, I could sure use the tips :) hehe.

  48. SO SAD!!! I ALMOST ORDERED THAT MAXI BUT WAS UNSURE AND NOW IT IS SOLD OUT!!!!! Sigh, but after my melt down, I do love your dupe post!!! XOX

  49. I need that commando bra! And I have heard so many great things about the hair oil!! I’m dying to try it!

  50. Ahhh you got the maxi dress!!! It looks so good on you!
