With the country opening up, many of us—hopefully—will be able to celebrate special occasions in person. And Spring and Summer are full of them: from Easter to Mother’s Day to weddings to graduations. There are so many opportunities to get together and share a little love and joy—and much needed too! As the weather warms up (for some of us), we’ve been thinking about Spring a lot over here on the blog. We’re continuing on with our theme this week: budget-friendly Spring shopping.
Today’s spring dress is from Scoop (available at Walmart), and it’s available in 3 colors. (I’m also loving the pink.) I’ve styled it with a pair of cap-toe pumps (similar here and here). The cap-toe pump has been a favorite of mine this year. So much so that I featured it on one of my real vs. deal segments reprinted below:
The cap-toe slingback might not need any introduction due to its iconic status. Coco Chanel introduced this beauty in 1957 and nicknamed it “the height of elegance.” This shoe ticks all the classic boxes and is a cult favorite due to its neutral color scheme – black toe and nude body. The heel is not too high nor too low and looks fantastic with skirts, dresses, pants, or blue jeans.
Walmart carries the Easy Spirit cap-toe pump that’s easy on your budget. Hands down the best dupe are the Exclusive Baton Heel available at TuckerNuck that looks almost identical to the Chanel slingback. Karen White pointy toe slingback is elegant and sophisticated thanks to a v-shape opening. And the Vaneli Aliz slingback is a perennial favorite available at Nordstrom.
I’m loving this dress because it would work for just about any special occasion I can think of this year. My accessories are subtle but compliment the outfit nicely. I’m featuring a DeMellier handbag (similars here and here) and a silver bracelet and hoops. Understated but elegant.
We’re in the Spring transition phase over here at SAACA. Yesterday we featured a budget-friendly skirt from Scoop that you can dress up or down by swapping out just your accessories. Make sure to check it out.
We just posted a new DAILY LOOK, so make sure to check it out. Daily Looks is a really simple feature: a dedicated photo feed of my daily outfits. And you can shop those outfits easily through the shop the widget below the picture.
