Guest Post: Spring bags from 101 Things I love

Hi! This is Johanna from 101 things I love! I am so excited to contribute to this lovely blog while Chic ‘n Cheap Living is taking some time off with her little bundle of joy. We have been blog buddies for years now. It’s one of the very things that propels me to continue blogging…the amazing women I’ve met along the way and seeing each other’s lives come full circle. Congrats! (motherhood turns you into a total sap; I can attest!)

Today we’re talking Spring bags. Handbags, that is! As a fellow accessory junkie, I’ll be the first to tell you that your winter bag just won’t due as the temps warm up. Further more, do you really need a reason to shop? Brights, textures, metallics and pastels are the name of the game and they come in every shape + color.
On my wish list…the white laser cut duffel and the mint cross-body bag. I’ve been researching (ahem..cough, cough) for what seems like months and narrowed my choices down to these two.
Happy Shopping & thank you for having me! xo

Guest Post: Floral fashion by The Dainty Dolls House

Hello there, I’m Kizzy from The Dainty Dolls House, a little world filled with art, fashion, creativity & daydreams. I’m happily stepping while Chic n Cheap Living welcomes the new addition to the family.

Since we’re in spring now, I thought I would share my favorite thing about the season and that is floral or flowers to be more specific. Floral has always been a print that I love and wear throughout the year, it’s ageless and can be reinvented a number of times to suit anyone’s needs. And for those that flee from wearing bright patterns, you always have the option of having the print on a handbag and carry with you instead of wearing it in full scale.

Floral is always present in the fashion world and continuously sashays down the runways & best of all, any budget can afford something beautiful in floral.  As you can see, I’ve included below a small taste of floral inspired pieces found around the web, I hope you enjoy them & wish you a marvelous day. Be sure to visit me at The Dainty Dolls House for many more beautiful things.

Loves & Loves

Guest Post: Spring Fling from Tanvi

Tanvi Spring Fling

Hallelujah! Spring is here. The long winter has been quite painful. Hasn’t it? Or was that only on the North American continent? Nonetheless, let’s celebrate the start of all things bright, floral and fun. TOP ROW: Striped Dress / Shift Dress / Grey Tee / Cut Offs / Swim Suit / Loafers BOTTOM ROW: White Sun Dress / Neon Flats / Coral Lipstick / Yellow Nail Paint / Sunglasses / Pouch / Denim Dress These are of the things on my radar for this spring/summer season. A little bit (or a lot, if that’s your thing) of stripes are a must for spring. A comfortable pair of cut offs paired with a comfortable grey tee and bright-fun-flats or a peek-a-boo denim dress […]
