The Perfect Striped Shirt

August 24, 2015

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a nice weekend! I actually took Friday off because Russ surprised me with a gift card for a spa day. I won’t lie, I hinted at wanting a little treat which is embarrassing to admit. I’ve been feeling pretty hormonal with infertility treatment. I’m over having my hormones messed with! Thankfully it is almost over. Anyway, Russ totally picked up on my hint and did even more. It was so nice of him! I’ve never had a spa day before. Then we celebrated the 30th birthday of one of our dear friends which was really fun. You can see a picture here.

Today I am wearing the perfect striped shirt from SheIn. I love the blue and white, the looser fit, the slightly longer back, and the silky material. In my book, blouses like this are essential in a wardrobe because they are perfect for work and weekend. I know this one will be getting a lot of wear! Plus, it’s only $15. Score. I cannot talk about this outfit without mentioning my new bag. No, I did not buy a Chloe. Let’s face it, that is just not reality for me. I found an amazing dupe for under $40! I did some major hunting and found quite a few awesome dupes actually. This is my exact one which also comes in grey (expect a couple weeks in shipping), but I am really happy with it. I am linking all the ones I found below in case you are like me and on the hunt too.

Chloe Dupes for Less

I’ve had some people ask me about SheIn. I’ve now had multiple things from there, and overall have had a really positive experience. I would compare the quality to Forever21. Remember, you aren’t paying much so you cannot expect designer quality. When it comes to fit, just make sure you look at the measurements. Oftentimes there are photos of actual people in the items or reviews, so that helps too. Just be sure to expect about two weeks for shipping. I currently have a wish list of other items from there that I am eyeing! I recommend looking around.

SheIn also just launched a cool new fashion buyer program where you can get points to their site and/or an Amazon gift card. Details are below (click photo) or here.
