PRODUCTIVE FRIDAY VIBES

You know those mornings when you wake up to the rain falling down & it makes you crave a lazy day in bed? That was totally me this morning but I decided to get the f*** up and try to be productive. On the days I want to get things done, comfy-cute is my go-to style! A baggy sweatshirt, stretchy jeans, and booties because for some reason when I wear heels I feel like I can accomplish anything.


SHOP MY LOOK:

TOP: zara.com - They are sold out! Click this: asos.com link for a VERY similar one!

JEANS: revolve.com - Linked a lighter wash that is cheaper and cuter for spring.

BOOTIES: prettylittlething.com - These booties are snake-print and my favorite right now.

HAIR TIE: hm.com  - Mine is sold out, but the one I linked is in my shopping cart at the moment!

BAG: tjmaxx.com - I love this bag, the only color left is pink and I think I need it now.

ROSES: $2.00 from Aldi.












I hope this post inspires you not to have a lazy day!

THE BEST VEGAN ITEMS AT TRADER JOE'S

If you know me, you know that I love grocery shopping, but hate spending money. Trader Joe's is one of my favorite places to grocery shop on a budget. Their produce is super affordable, everything is always fresh and they have so many unique Vegan items. Also, most of their Vegan items clearly state that they are Vegan. However, always double check the ingrediants list just to be sure. If it's your first time walking into Trader Joe's it can be a little bit overwhelming! So, I'm here to make your life a little easier.

WHAT I LIKE AT TRADER JOES: (disclaimer: all of these images were found through google.com/images)
