Post-Baby Beautiful: Chrissy Teigen's Denim Shorts and Duster Coat Look for Less

Chrissy Teigen's look for less
Victoria Secret model and new mom Chrissy Teigen flaunted her post-pregnancy body in her favorite denim shorts, a white t-shirt and hooded duster jacket while out on a stroll with her hubby John Legend and newborn baby Luna in the Big Apple. Could this family get any cuter?! Denim shorts are a summer staple, and Teigen has been spotted wearing her one x oneteaspoon 'Ford Bandits' ($104 - $148, a lot lately. We found some cute lookalikes at H&M under $20, plus the accessories that really pull this boho-glam look together: A straw hat, rich brown leather-look handbag and nude ankle strap sandals. Of course, it doesn't hurt to have enviably long legs like Chrissy to pull off this ensemble...but we have faith in you, dear reader. Shop her entire look for less below...

Off the Rack: Who What Wear for Target May Highlights

Who What Wear for Target
I'm increasingly impressed with the Who What Wear for Target collection - each month seems to bring more covetable items that I want to add to my wardrobe. This month, they've introduced sophisticated ways to wear ruffles, cropped flares and summer whites. I used to love shopping Target's Xhilaration line but at some point I woke up and realized, it's just way too young for me (boohoo), and that's why I especially love the Who What Wear line. It's on trend but totally suitable for someone in her thirties and beyond. The colors are sophisticated, and many of the silhouettes are work appropriate, too. I'm crushing on this pleated skirt, this jacket and this ruffle top. This straw hat is a summer staple (and fits my big head) while this apron dress would be perfect for long summer weekends. I just wish I wasn't nursing sometimes so I could wear all these fun items all the time! But, not complaining. I guess my situation saves me money in the long run! More Who What Wear for Target photos below, and on Snapchat...I'm @budgetbabe! :-)

Off the Rack: Reed Krakoff for Kohl's Mini Review

Reed for Kohl's in-store photos on
Yesterday I popped into Kohl's to check out the new Reed Krakoff collection of apparel and handbags. I'm calling this a mini review because I had neither the strength nor the wherewithal to actually try on the clothes, but I got a chance to feel the pieces and get a sense of quality. It's nice. I was not impressed by the lookbook but the collection looks good in person. You can see more of the collection by following me @budgetbabe on Snapchat (I'm a newbie so please bear with me as I figure the whole Snapchat thing out). I really liked this eyelet shirtdress and even this chambray shirtdress. If you saw someone carrying the Reed Atlantique Satchel ($96.75 for the Large, down from $129) you might mistake it for an authentic designer bag.
