Look for Less: Pottery Barn Seagrass Headboard

Love this Pottery Barn look for half the price!
I'm in the process of decorating our guest room which has led me to Pottery Barn for inspiration. But no way can I afford Pottery Barn prices! Their beachy seagrass headboard is $500 for the queen. Meanwhile I found a great look for less that's half the price at Target.com. Same look, very different prices!

Look for Less: Gwyneth Paltrow at Her Book Signing in Fendi Logo Boots, Wide Leg Pants, and Turtleneck Sweater

Gwyneth Paltrow Fendi Boots and Wide Leg Pants Look for Less
Gwyneth Paltrow's new book, The Clean Plate, was released last month and we are loving her outfit just as much as her recipes! At a Barnes & Noble book signing in LA last month, Gwyneth paired an oversized turtleneck sweater with wide leg pants - cuffed, we might add, to show off those funky western-style Fendi logo boots. We personally can't wait to start wearing boots of this style during spring and paring them with skinny jeans or even midi dresses/skirts. Gwyneth keeps things simple with a small bracelet and a fit bit, which is quite fitting for the theme of her book. With beautiful blonde tresses like that, who needs accessories?



Meghan Markle's White Turtleneck Dress Look for Less

Meghan Markle's white turtleneck dress and matching coat
The Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle glows in her white turtleneck dress by Calvin Klein with a matching white coat by Amanda Wakeley. We love the idea of matching your coat to your dress - the result always looks elevated and expensive. Another pro tip from a royal: Anchor your look with an unexpected neutral, like the olive green Ralph Lauren pumps and clutch seen here!



Alessandra Ambrosio's Michael Jackson Graphic Tee and Moto Jacket Look for Less

Alessandra Ambrosio Michael Jackson Tee Look for Less
Alessandra Ambrosio is the queen of casual looks that are super easy to re-create, and we have to say that a good moto jacket is one of our favorite pieces to style around. If you don't have one in your closet yet, this Topshop 'Rosa' jacket is the perfect solution - I own this one and love everything about it - the fit, the price, and it looks way more expensive than it is! Pair it with any graphic tee of your choice, some high-waisted destroyed jeans, and classic black ankle boots. We're loving this as a transition outfit from winter to spring!
