The majority of the outfits I put together on a regular basis mix brands, trends, and price points. You all know I love Zara, and you’ve probably realized by now that I also love nice things – don’t we all. If you don’t feel like committing to a trend, why not try it out by getting an inexpensive version. If you’re over it before the trend has even started, have no fear – you didn’t spend an arm and a leg. This blouse is from Zara, but you can find similar more expensive options on Shopbop and Revolve.

I’ve incorporated many of my favorite trends and pieces into this look. My coveted Old Navy denim vest goes with me everywhere, on every trip. I love ruffles and feminine details which are incorporated in both the blouse and pants. Lastly, gingham is one of my favorite patterns to wear. No matter if it’s small or bold, it makes a plain outfit not so plain.

DRESSed Down

I wore this dress to a formal a couple of weeks ago with statement earrings and black heels. Instead of buying another dress that I can only wear to formal functions, I decided to purchase something that is more versatile. I can wear this dress to church with booties, out to dinner, or more casually, shown here. Although these platform sandals are no longer available, I found a few replacements.

Get to shopping!

A Trolley Ride

May and I got a nice ride down Main Street by Mr. James, a Memphis trolley driver. He pitched many photo ideas and made a few stops for us along the way.

Today, I wore a Zara (of course) green jumpsuit with a denim vest and platform oxfords. Unfortunately, the jumpsuit is no longer available, but I found one similar. This denim vest has become a staple in my wardrobe no matter the season. I pair it with almost everything.

PS. If you haven’t ridden a Memphis trolley before, you must. AND it’s only $1.
