There’s something quite striking about Prada‘s Minimal Baroque sunglass collection. And while my favorite would have to be the swirl arm sunglasses, these butterfly-framed ones that slightly mimic a cat eye shape are just as lovely. Sadly, my budget doesn’t allow for a pair of $290 designer shades. Also, I’m a ridiculously clumsy person who has a bad habit of sitting on, losing or breaking her (sun)glasses.

While accidentally sitting on a pair of $10 sunnies might be annoying as well, it sure isn’t quite as heartbreaking as accidentally destroying a designer pair that has cost you 30x the price. That’s why most of my sunglass purchases range between $10 to $50. These designer inspired sunglasses are almost identical compared to real Pradas at $10 (sale price!) are very easy on your wallet. I’m especially crushing on the tortoise version. So beautiful!

Lately, it seems, a style blogger’s arm party, a fashion term coined by blogging sensation Man Repeller, cannot be photographed without containing the highly coveted Classic Pavé Link Bracelet by J.Crew. And I sure see why this chain link bracelet is so popular among blogging fashionistas. It looks super expensive, but at $118 is relatively affordable without being/looking cheap. The pavé detail against the heavy chain links adds a feminine twist to an otherwise bulky/masculine jewelry piece. Instant love!

So who doesn’t love a bit of glitter every now and then? Glitter has become a growing trend, from shoes completely adorned with glitter to small yet eye-popping accents. And what better to way to incorporate the glitz and glam than this glitter-covered leather belt by Miu Miu. The rich gold color speaks of luxury yet it is not overpowering. However, this belt is $275 and currently sold out. For a similar take on this trend, check out the alternative below.

Her edgy ankle boots are an unexpected addition to an otherwise casual and tomboy-ish outfit. She finishes off the look with a fun necklace and bright accessories to show off a little of her playful side. Ashley’s combination of style elements tells us she is a laid-back girl with a sense of humor. Want to channel some of Ashley’s style? Pick up one or all of her outfit pieces revealed below.
