Mixed Prints, Mixed Messages Under 30

Shein Collage of my favorite things in February and january under 30

Hello Loves!

Has the flu hit your household yet? Wolfie’s been under the weather lately so we have been laying low for about a week and a half. But then this morning the sun was shining and Wolfie was finally his hyper self again. Talk about mixed messages. So we decided to shower off the weekend grime and make a short trek to a place I enjoyed as a kid– Wild Rumpus Bookstore! I got a few photos of the outside so I’ll share more later. If you haven’t heard of it, it’s a kids bookstore in Minneapolis that has a magical atmosphere, complete with animals running around. 🙂

I still remember the book I got there when I was about 11. It has gold binding and it is about the marriage of a certain princess Isabel from Italy. I still often think about Wild Rumpus, where tailless cats roamed free and the floorboards had been replaced by glass to see the mice beneath our feet. My one childhood visit there had such an impact on me that I thought Beckett and I needed to make it a tradition to bring Wolfgang there.

There was a book signing going on while we were there. The author of The Digger and The Flower was there, which made things hectic, but exciting nonetheless. Wolfie was most thrilled to find three new Berenstein Bears books he didn’t have yet. It’s crazy to me how much he loves those “Bear Bear” books, as he calls them. He won’t sit through a lot of shorter books, but he will sit as we read Junk Foodor Messy Room 100,000,000 times!

Now onto my latest fashion finds under $30.

Oh, and let me note for you that there are only 3 things close to $30; one’s a belt, one’s a mug, and the other is the sequin sweater. I couldn’t believe how great the prices are for all of this! As always size up if between sizes.

  1. Botanical Blouse $20

    • I love that this blouse has a lot of personality in that print and it reminds me of the bright prints Gucci often uses.
  2. Gingham Zipper Pants $19

    • I don’t think this print or this cut of pants ever goes anywhere… they’ve both been going strong since at least the 50s, probably longer.
  3. Dotty Mesh Shirt $9

    • Polkadots have their moments, but they never go out of style. Picking up a shirt like this for $9 will be a fun wear all year long!
  4. Camel Knot Sweater $19

    • This sweater looks so classic to me. It reminds me of something my grandma Delores would have had in the 60s.
  5. Brown Ribbed Pullover $15

    • Can you tell I’m obsessed with brown? I think it looks so good on a brunette (like me!) so I think everything I’ve bought lately has been brown.
  6. Dotted LBD $20

    • I have a shirt basically just like this dress and I wear it all the time. I think a dress like this would get worn a lot too!
  7. Sequin Spring Sweater $29

    • Who doesn’t love bright pretty sequins?!?
  8. Forrest and Cardinal Lace Blouse $16

    • I guess this post is all about getting Gucci looks for less because this shirt also reminds me of some of what Gucci has out this year. It also helps that the model is wearing a G belt in the picture!
  9. Contigo Washable Straw Waterbottle $12.99

    • I am constantly thirsty and I NEVER drink enough water unless I have a water bottle with a straw. This one can be put in the dishwasher, which is really attractive to me since my last one died because I put it in the dishwasher and it melted.
  10. Tropical Coffee Tumbler $29

    • We’ve been trying to be really cheap lately so we have been making all of our own coffee at home. Sometimes I look at cute mugs because I think they make drinking coffee more fun. 🙂
  11. Gucci Me Not H&M Belt $7

    • I have been kinda wanting a Gucci belt for awhile, but with a price like that I cant. So I found this H&M dupe that has a similar look, but is practically 1/100 of the price. The trend will soon pass and I’ll be glad I didn’t get one, not that I could have– because it’s $550 and that could feed a small family for a month.
  12. HairCalf Favorite $29.99

    • Have you noticed that I link these leopard calfhair belts often? That’s because I have one and wear it CONSTANTLY!!! Seriously, get one if you don’t have one because it will be your new favorite!

In tomorrow’s post I’ll show you one of my FAVORITE Shein finds so far that I didn’t include above! ❤

Xo,

Kellie
