I say it’s about time for spring. Determined to wish the cold weather away, I packed up my winter clothes over a month ago. I would agree, a bit optimistic, but that’s me. We’ve had some breaks in the cold temps here and there, but I’m done. Done people! During those days when the weather heated up a bit, I was so excited to break out the sandals and spring dresses. Figuring you might be in need some inspiration yourselves – to kick winter to the curb, I’ve collected a few looks to get you in the mood for warm weather season. Next, I’ve got a special guest, who shows us how she styled her Victoria Beckham for Target romper – now on SALE for $24.50! (HERE). You’ve seen the darling Bella Baynard here before – usually behind the scenes as the photographer for style and collaboration events with my blogger sister Kanesha Baynard of Bold Living Today.com. Speaking of Kanesha, you may just want to pop on over to her blog, and check out her latest video collaboration, Boldness of Motherhood 2017, featuring Bold Mama’s around the country. I promise you’ll leave inspired!
Sale you say? I’ve rounded up some past AskSuzanneBell.com picks that just hit the sale racks at the bottom of today’s post. There’s lot’s to cover so let’s get started!
I love dresses during the spring/summer months. Maxi, midi – I am all about one piece comfort. A great place to pick up summer dresses is consignment shops. Locally, I shop Millie Mango in Burlingame or Repeter in Los Altos. Fillmore and 5th in Palo Alto also has a great selection. Online, I love Thredup – they have a large selection and I love their return policy! Each of the below looks, with the exception of the last two (those are from Nordstrom Rack) is styled up with a second hand find. My tip for consignment, as well as discount shopping, is to make a list of what you need in your closet – voids you need filled. Stick with the list to avoid getting off in the berries and picking up pieces “because they are a good deal”. Nothing is a good deal if you don’t wear it, and everything second hand is a deal.
Mcguire Denim Skirt | Thredup
Bailey44 Dress | Repeter Consignment
Blue Planet Sunnies | Millie Mango Resale Burlingame
Tiana B Dress | Thredup
Max and Cleo Maxi Dress | Thredup
BCBG Max Azaria Top | Thredup
Velvet by Graham and Spencer Dress | Nordstrom Rack
Young Fabulous and Broke Maxi Dress | Nordstrom Rack
Shoes are something I chose to invest in – especially styles I know I’ll wear every day. These lace-ups from Paul Green have paid for themselves and then some.
Where do you chose to invest your shopping dollars? Where do choose to save?
Victoria Beckham for Target Orange Romper on Bella of @BellaBay.co
I love how Bella tied the belt in the back, for a more streamlined look!
Style Tip: Try turning your belt around with the buckle in the back and see what you think!
You can follow the fabulous Bella on Instagram @BellaBay.co (HERE). While your there, check out the gorgeous hand-etched yellow dress she designed and created – by herself for prom! I’ve already put myself on the list for a custom couture gown when this talented young lady has a line of her own!
