Spring Designer Dupes…
Who doesn’t like a good designer dupe, right?
While I do like and value the ‘real deal’ in some instances, for trendier pieces that I feel I may not use very often, I’m all for saving some money and opting for a good copycat. The highly popular Chloe studded booties (looooving these light colored suede ones too!) have been everywhere and for good reason! They pack a style punch and can be worn with just about everything all year long. They add some edge to jeans and I love pairing them with something a little feminine like this polka dot romper for spring. I always fall hard for soft/tough combos.
Another hot designer trend right now is the Chloe Pixie crossbody bag for warm weather looks. The round shape is playful and perfect for spring, but I just couldn’t justify (or afford) the designer version. So what did this girl do? Go on a hunt for an inexpensive dupe, of course! And I’m happy to say that I found one that I absolutely love the look and quality of for a FRACTION of the designer price. It’s going to be a fun to pair with shorts and dresses this season and the next!
In other news….Pete has landed himself back in the hospital again after his open heart surgery last month, the poor thing. After thinking his new backpain was just from not being able to get comfortable in the bed for the past four weeks, we finally found out that his left lung was filled to max capacity with fluid. It was causing him major shortness of breath and pain.
They drained off FIVE liters of fluid the first 24 hours of being in the hospital. Crazy stuff.
The technical term for what he has going on right now is Chylothorax, which is unfortunately a result from his surgery. So, while we spent Easter eating hospital food, he is in good spirits and should be able to come back home by the end of the week. The boys and I are roughing it this week for spring break without dad here, but all is well. We are just ready to get Pete back home well and feeling more like himself again! Won’t be long!
Gotta head out! The boys and I are headed up to the hospital to spend a little time with Pete today! Before you leave though, be sure to enter to win our $400 NORDSTROM GIVEAWAY happening right now!! Keep scrolling to enter!
See you guys back here soon and thank you so much for all the continued prayers for our family!
