Alessandra Ambrosio's Graphic Tee and Fedora Look for Less

Alessandra Ambrosio Graphic Tee and Fedora Look for Less
Moms (and frankly, all of us!) seek comfort in everyday wear, and Alessandra Ambrosio proves that you don't have to sacrifice style to keep up with the kiddos. On a trip to the farm with her son, she sports an easy graphic tee and jeans, but the fedora and riding boots are the perfect touches of flair without going overboard. Keep a lightweight utility jacket handy by effortlessly tying it around your waist!



Sienna Miller's Bomber Jacket and Boyfriend Jeans Look for Less

Sienna Miller's Bomber Jacket and Boyfriend Jeans Look for Less
There's something so envious about Sienna Miller's style, and this time around it's her gorgeous bomber jacket. Much can be done with such a versatile piece, but when you're going for comfort, the boyfriend jeans & sweater combo is a no-brainer. Finish off with some cool combat boots and you'll strike the perfect balance between causal and edgy like Sienna does!



Spot the Real: True Religion Off-Shoulder Tencel Top

Can you guess which top costs more?
Off-shoulder tops are a big trend for spring, but before you start to worry about which bra to wear with said top, or how to style it, feast your eyes on these two lovely chambray blue options in soft Tencel fabric. One costs $129 while the other is $55 (and it's on sale, too, try code SPRINGIT to get 40% off). You can wear either top completely off the shoulder or not, depending on your mood. Pair with white jeans (I have these) and neutral accessories (this wedge or these flats will go with everything) and your casual spring wardrobe will embody style, simplified. Now see if you can spot the pricier top by clicking a link below...

Cute spring/summer styles at Gap

Yesterday I stopped by Gap in hopes of finding some new slip-ons and was pleasantly surprised to find loads of clothes I'd happily wear this spring and summer. You see, I don't often shop at the Gap because I feel like the quality isn't that much better than Old Navy or Merona at Target, where you can get very similar styles for less. But every so often, I find some gems on the sales racks or online. Gap's leather ballet flats are my go-to - they look like the expensive brands at a fraction of the cost. And yesterday I found exactly what I was looking for - genuine leather slip-on sneakers, for $49.95. (I went with blush, thanks Instagram loves!) Yes, it's pricey for this Budget Babe, but where else can you find leather sneaks for this price? I added this straw fedora (sized large enough to fit my big head) and qualified for a spend $75, save $25 promotion, so all-in-all it wasn't a terrible purchase. I plan on wearing both items for daily walks with my little guy and our dog, plus almost-daily trips to the playground. Other Gap highlights include subtle print shorts, fit & flare 100% cotton dresses, eyelet skirts, denim shirts, rugby striped maxi dresses, slightly distressed denim shorts and printed Tencel joggers.
