Reese Witherspoon's Floral Dress, Straw Bag and White Sneakers Look for Less

Serena & Lily baskets are so pretty
I never thought I could get so excited about a waste basket. But enter this Opalhouse lidded wastebasket at Target, and suddenly I'm giddy for a garbage can!

For that spring transitional weather we've been having, nothing beats a longline jacket! Chrissy Teigen shows us how it's done, pairing her open-front army green trench with a camisole and mom jeans. She finishes the look with some very expensive, very furry Fendi slides, but I did you a favor by swapping in these faux-fur tiger print sandals instead (you're welcome!) Note the wide brim hat and oversized sunnies, too: You'll love wearing these two simple yet statement-making (and bad-hair-day-hiding) accessories!
