Splurge vs Steal -Spring Edition

Spring is officially here and that means I need to clean my closet. Swap the sweaters for peasant tops and jackets for button front dresses. While I have a lot to do in my closet I couldn't stop looking for spring pieces. Since this blog is all about finding good deals I decided to look for cute stuff at Anthropologie and look for similar pieces at Shein. Although Anthropologie has really cute, high-quality pieces they are a bit expensive.

Mushroom Piccata Pasta [Eat]

I have been on an Italian kick lately, specially for Chicken Piccata. I took a look in my fridge and spotted all the piccata sauce ingredients. Since I was not in the mood for chicken I used some leftover spaghetti and mixed it with mushrooms, spinach, and piccata sauce. I only used olive oil because I was out of butter. But everything tastes better with butter.

Lilac and Navy [Steal]

Now that spring is around the corner I felt the need to use my lilac wool pants. These wool pants are from J. Crew but I got them while thrifting. You guys voted 59% YES on these pastel color pants. After having them for a few weeks, I finally used them. I paired them with a satin top that was also thrifted. This top is almost the same pastel color as the pants and it kind of looks like a pajama top. I have worn this top several times, you can see it on my Instagram feed. I added this Patrizia Pepe navy jacket which I got at the 90% off sale from Yoox. I love how these two colors look. I found similar pants starting at $9.

Castello di Amorosa -Day One [Napa Travel Guide]

I just came back from Napa, I was there for a bachelorette trip. I had such an amazing time! Drinking wine and most importantly spending time with my girlfriends! I know Napa sounds too relaxing for a bachelorette trip, but let me just say "this is 30".  In this post, I will show you what we did the first full day in Napa. We visited Castello di Amorosa and had dinner at Gott's Roadside restaurant. Next week I will post about my second day in Napa!
