Fall Coats under $150

styleKat Crowley1 Comment

Hi Hunnies

It’s been a minute! But I’m back! Let’s talk coats. Do NOT underestimate the power of a good coat to finish an outfit. If you throw your North Face parka over a stellar look, it will kill the whole vibe. I found 5 coat styles that are sure to amp up your style this season (and keep your warm but, like, whatever).

I rented this STUNNING coat from Nuuly last month and fell in love. Too bad the retail price tag is almost $700………. At the bottom of the post I share some other gorgeous outerwear pieces available to rent with Nuuly right now.

Happy shopping!

I invested in a teddy coat last year and did not regret it. Casual enough to throw on over leggings to run errands yet cute enough to dress up.


The trendiest on the list. Do I think these will still be in style next year? No. Are they fun as hell? Yes.

puff puff

Pass! Jk- I love a puffer. If you don’t want to blend in with a sea of North Faces, opt for a belted version or a oversized collar.

A little bit fancy

If you’re going to invest in one coat this season, I would make it a tailored coat. It’s a classic that will not go out of style. I love the option below with cargo pockets- it’s a fresh twist on a staple piece.

Check please!

Similar to the tailored coats above- but just a bit more funky.

Rent with Nuuly

Here are some GORGEOUS coats that I would never be able to afford at retail- but are available to rent with Nuuly! The coat from the photos at the top of this post is linked in the second row :)

fall leather - under $100

styleKat CrowleyComment

Hi hunnies,

Leather is one of the biggest trends to come out of NYFW. While every fall we see leather jackets and booties, this season leather dresses, shirts, and pants are taking the lead. I wore this gorgeous pale pink leather mini dress to my brother and sister-in-law’s (eek!) rehearsal dinner last weekend. I styled with some minimal sandals and a vintage acrylic bag. I love this trend because leather can be dressed up or down so easily. Take the black leather joggers in the first row as an example - you could pair those with a cropped sweatshirt and some sneaks for a causal look or a bodysuit and stilettos on a night out. Shop my style picks below for my favorite affordable leather pieces this season.

High Waisted Bikinis

styleKat CrowleyComment

HI Hunnies, 

Back at it again with another blog post! I’m feeling inspired this week and thought I would keep the creative juices flowing. I have swimwear on the brain since the weather is FINALLY consistently nice in Michigan. I took a poll on my IG stories to see what y’all prefer: low rise or high rise swim. High rise won by a landslide and I couldn’t agree more. I wanted to dive into why I like high rise swim so much and the two different types you’ll find while shopping. 

  • why I LOVE high rise swim 
    It covers up my tummy. It’s really that simple. It’s the same reason I only wear high rise jeans. Why would I want my bathing suit bottoms to cut me at my biggest point around my hips? High rise cinches me at my smallest point and makes my waist look little and my legs look loooong. Also, it is nobodies business what’s going on below my belly button. 

  • two types of high rise swim 

    • Full Coverage - These cover you booty completely and offer the most coverage (obviously). They give a bit of a pin up vibe 

    • High Cut- These are the most popular right now. They cut higher on the thigh to give that 80’s exercise look lol. They are usually verrrry cheeky. I’m into these right now as by butt is my best ASSet. (ha, get it?)

Shop* my look and my style picks for full coverage and high cut high rise bathing suits below!

Summer Shoes under $30

styleKat Crowley1 Comment

Hi Hunnies,

It’s been awhile since I wrote a blog post but I’M BACK. This year I’ve been trying to up my shoe game (on a budget, obviously) and want to share my secret to affordable fashionable shoes - SHEIN. Whenever I post that I shop here I get a couple of DM’s on if I trust them and what the quality is like. I wrote a blog post on this last year (you can read here). I’ve purchased 4 pairs of shoes from them this year and have been super impressed with all of them. And I get THE MOST compliments on them because they are different than any shoes I have found at local retailers (Target, Nordstrom) and more affordable than most of the unique shoes I find at ASOS. Take a gander below at some summer shoe trends I’m obsessing over as well as my picks from Shein (all under $30)!!!



Chunky heel

I’ve been head over heels (lol) with this chunky heeled trend. They are easy to walk in, comfortable, and CHIC. You can pair with some straight leg denim and a t-shirt to amp up a casual look or with a sun dress for an easy date night outfit.


Clear heels are my new neutral staple. They go with LITERALLY everything (say that sentence in Chris Traeger’s voice for the ultimate effect). I’ve already invested in two pairs of shoes with clear details and will probably buy a third. Pair one of heels below with any outfit and I promise it will elevate it immediately.

easy slides

Slides have been huge for a few years now, but Shein just has the best selection. They are comfortable and so stylish. I like to stick to a neutral slide so I can pair with any outfit and get the most use of them. I wear to work, on errands, out to dinner. So easy!! My ideal look for slides is mom jeans, a slouchy white tee, and simple gold jewelry. Casual yet people will think you have your ish together.
