Hilary Duff's Black Maxi Skirt and Ancient Greek Sandals Look for Less

Hilary Duff has the best mom-on-the-go style in her black maxi skirt and Ancient Greek sandals.
Hilary Duff looked cool and casual in her marled grey sweater, black maxi skirt and 'Eleftheria' sandals by Ancient Greek Sandals ($250, shopbop.com) as she took her son Luca out for the day.

I'm loving her mom-on-the-go outfit that doesn't sacrifice style for comfort! So often I fall into the jeans-and-t-shirt rut, but I'm definitely going to seek out a jersey maxi skirt like Hilary's for spring and summer.

I'm also seriously in love with her Ancient Greek sandals - they're so simple yet so chic! I found a good lookalike under $100 by Steve Madden in genuine leather but if you want to spring for the real deal, by all means please do!

Shop Alessandra Ambrosio's turtleneck sweaterdress and over-the-knee boots look for less.
Brazilian bombshell Alessandra Ambrosio worked her streetstyle magic in a moss green turtleneck dress and over-the-knee boots.

I'm obsessed with the mix of chic neutrals in this winter ensemble, from her earthy green dress from label Concepto, to her sand colored boots, to her mushroom grey Hermes Etoupe Togo Birkin Bag ($22,950).

I also love that's she covered up from head to toe, yet still manages to look effortlessly sexy, as only a Victoria's Secret model can do...and you can, too, with these look for less finds!

Extra Petite Found The Most Amazing Hermes Belt Dupe at Talbots

Vintage Hermes reversible belt look for less dupe at Talbots
While checking out Jean from extrapetite.com's Instagram feed this week, I noticed she discovered an amazing vintage Hermes belt dupe that was just too good not to share. Jean is always sharing amazing finds, whether you're petite or not, her blog is a daily must-read for detailed fashion tips and styling advice. If Jean says something is good, I believe her. And this belt is no exception. You can see the many splendored ways Jean has worn her vintage Hermes (which I'm assuming cost a pretty penny, although she probably got a good deal on it - she's thrifty, too!) and her new Talbots belt, too, which is just $49.50 and comes in a multitude of colors and sizes. As you'll see, this belt can be worn so many ways and adds a touch of polish and "equestrian" chic to any outfit. Click on over to extrapetite.com for all the details!
