Tie-Dye Blouse

Tuesday, May 26, 2015










Lately I've been reaching for muted colors and neuturals, so when I spotted this tie-dye blouse from across the store at Marshalls- I knew it had to come home with me. I loved the subltle embroidered details, inkspot print, and the cute little poof balls on the neckline. If those little details alone didn't sell me, the fact that it was Cynthia Vincent for only $25 would have! I added some classic, crisp white jeans and these super cool textured heels. This is my ideal spring outfit- comfy jeans, a fun blouse and some killer heels. What's not to love?

Joie Blouse - c/o Marshalls
Clutch - c/o Marshalls
Brandy Melville Shorts - Plato's Closet ($10!)
Stuart Weitzman Sandals - Ebay
Bralet - Free People












I love the look of a low cut blouse, but sometimes it can be uncomfortable to have a deep neckline- especially for everyday wear. I discovered this amazing bralet from Free People that allows me to still enjoy plunging necklines while adding a little extra feminine detail and more importantly, coverage! I've been saving this breezy Joie blouse (from Marshalls for only $30!) for when I found the perfect under layer. At first, I wasn't sure if the blue was too much, but it added the fun pop of color and matched my clutch perfectly.  

Also, can we talk about my sandals real quick. 
I've been in LOVE with the Stuart Weitzman Cava sandals since the first time I saw them. Yes, love. Everything about them just screamed me, well, except the hefty price tag. That's why I woke up at 4:30am to bid on them on Ebay. We do crazy things for love ;) 


Thank you for reading and your continued support!!

Bleached Denim

Joes Jeans - c/o Marshalls
Top - c/o Marshalls
Blazer - Target
Heels - Thrifted










When I want to go for more of a laid-back outfit, the first thing I reach for is a pair of distressed jeans. There's just something about them that oozes "cool" and I love that they're all so different. You can have a darker wash with subtle distressing or bleached out jeans, covered in rips. I was browsing the racks at..you guessed it..Marshalls! I found this pair of Joes jeans and loved the bleached out wash and the distressing all over. I have been eyeing One Teaspoon's distressed jeans for quite some time, but I couldn't bring myself to spend over $150 on one pair. No way, not gonna happen! This pair was only $49.99 vs. $160! The boyfriend fit was the perfect contrast with my structured vest and I added a simple tank from The Cube at Marshalls. I know I post tons of Marshalls finds and this is exactly why- I'm able to find in-season, designer items at a fraction of the cost. I've tried shopping at department stores and always find myself looking for that second tag, you know..the discounted one! That moment is when I knew I was ruined...but in the best way possible! I've always enjoyed the thrill of the hunt and finding incredible deals and Marshalls makes that happen for me!

If you follow me on Instagram (@FrancescaPenko) I posted about Uriah's birthday party this past weekend. It was so fun celebrating with loved ones and watching him devour a cupcake..well.. two cupcakes. So messy! There was blue frosting everywhere and I wouldn't have it any other way.
