Six Designer Dupes to Buy for Spring

I have been known to splurge on a bag or a pair of shoes from time to time, but only if it's a classic, neutral item that I know I will get a ton of use out of.  For trendier, seasonable items, I definitely prefer to find the best steal.  Today, I rounded up six of my favorite spring designer items and their much more affordable dupes.  I either own or have seen the steals I'm sharing in-person, so I'm happy to answer any questions you may have!  I hope you enjoy {and maybe save a little $$$ in the process}!

Hey, ya'll!  Between daylight savings time and the unseasonably cold weather in Atlanta today, it was the Mondayest Monday ever.  But, the best way to kick those Monday blues {besides 3+ cups of coffee} is with some online shopping, am I right!?  I had been planning to do a blog post in the coming weeks on "Spring Essentials" and even snapped this photo a week or so ago in preparation for that particular post.  Today, I realized that almost every item in my "Spring Essentials" photo is at least 40% off!  So, of course, I had to go ahead and share.

Spring Trends That I Love

 Denim Jacket - Dress - Neckerchief - Espadrilles - Earrings

Happy Monday, y'all! We had the most beautiful, sunny, 60 degree weather in Atlanta over the weekend and it was giving me all the spring feels.  My husband, Fielding, and I grilled out on our back deck and took our dogs {Lilly & Sammie} for a run.  I enjoy being outside as much as possible when the weather is so nice.

 Spring is my FAVORITE season for 2 reasons: 1)  I love the weather - it's perfect running weather, patio weather, dog park weather, and flower weather.  2) I love spring fashion - pastels and floral prints make me so happy!

 The taste of spring inspired me to put my over-sized sweaters and leather leggings away and pull out my white jeans, floral dresses, and sandals.  Today, I want to share my favorite Spring 2018 trends that I've tried thus far.

If you can't tell by my blog name, I kinda have a thing for stripes.  What you may not know about me, though, is that my favorite clothing item is a good jumpsuit.  So when I found this adorable striped number - I knew I couldn't live without it.  Let me tell you 5 reasons why I love these one-piece wonders:
