Although I hate to jinx it, it appears spring has finally arrived in Chicago! I’m teaming up with the Bloggers Who Budget today to share my favorite spring trends for under $75. Let’s start with this adorable swing tank dress from American Eagle Outfitters.
I love this dress for two reasons: (1) It’s the perfect seasonless piece for my wardrobe – and in Pantone’s Color of the Year, Marsala, no less; and (2) I can wear this pregnant or not. (The cost per wear theory doesn’t get better than that.) And because I’m embracing the 70’s vibe this spring, I’m all about adding this season’s cutest trends: dark denim, fringe booties, a bucket bag, and a silver statement pendant. (Natural stones + silver are HUGE right now – you’ll see them everywhere this fall, too.) I’m ready for that sunshine, Chicago.
