Splurge vs. Save + J.Crew Giveaway!

Today I am excited to share with you my participation in Credit Card Insider’s Challenge “Splurge vs. Save” campaign!

Who says you need to spend a fortune on a fabulously chic outfit? Between bills, student loans, and a desire for travel expeditions, who has the money to spend on clothes like there’s no tomorrow? I certainly don’t. I’ve been in love with Olivia Wilde’s style for awhile now and I thought she’d be the perfect “Splurge vs. Save” inspiration.

All About Chevron

Happy Monday!

I hope everyone’s weekend was relaxing and fun! Mine was pretty low key as I kick started my spring break. Surprising and sadly, I don’t have any trips or adventures planned for this week besides doing some spring cleaning and lesson planning. No worries, vacationing at home is always the best. 🙂

I’m not usually the one to wear an all over pattern, but I’m totally diggin’ this dress. Pin up Darling did it again with the Chevron Bow Back Dress. The shift-style shape paired with the long sleeves and soft fabric makes this dress my go to dress because it really does not need much and the bold pattern says it all. 🙂

And did you notice the back of the dress?
