What I Wore | April 2019


Hello friends and happy Wednesday!  I hope you are all having a great week.  I am so excited that maybe, just maybe, the warmer weather might be finally sticking around.  I am SO ready to ditch my Winter coat and layers :)  Before we got too deep into May, I wanted to share with all of you a summary of what I wore in April along with what YOU all loved by what you clicked on the most.  Y'all truly love your Amazon accessories!!!  So grab a cup of coffee (or wine!) as I share a few highlights from April.  

Without a doubt, this Daisy Rose Tote was the most your most popular item and I can't say that I blame you one bit!  I absolutely love this purse, it's what I carry every day, and I also bought it in the Cream check in April.  It now even comes in a Black and Gray check which I may just have to give in and purchase that one too :)


These Tortoise Shell earrings from Amazon were a close second and for the price, you can't afford to have these earrings in your arsenal for the Summer.  They are the perfect statement earring to add a pop of pattern to any outfit and they are super light.  I just love them and wear them every chance I get.



And if you love the statement earring trend this Summer, check out these other options I rounded up.  All super light, amazing quality, and they won't break your budget.  The multi-color bohemian tassel earrings were a close second to the tortoise shell for April.  Both are a great addition to any outfit and I absolutely love how you can wear the bohemian tassels with so many different outfits!



This large initial necklace has been a top seller ever since The Suburban Style Life was born.  I wear this necklace on the daily and receive so many compliments on it.  I love that it's big enough to wear as a statement piece and is so versatile to wear every day.  And for less than $10 on Amazon, you just can't go wrong!

Y'all truly love your accessories, especially from Amazon.  I totally get it!!  I do too :)  Now on to the clothing...



This adorable wrap dress from Target was a huge find for me in April, I found it on a clearance rack so sadly it is sold out on line, however, it may be sitting on your local Target's clearance rack too, just waiting for you to buy it :)  It's such a flattering fit and I love the longer sleeves for unpredictable weather this time of year.  


These white, pull on jeggings from Old Navy are fast becoming a staple in my closet.  I rarely grab for my button up white jeggings anymore.  The elastic waist band front is just pure genius, no more button or zipper poking out from underneath your top.





These Olive jeans from Old Navy were perfect for that awkward transitional stage from Winter to Spring.  You can truly wear them with clothing from any season which I love!!!  My only regret is not purchasing them sooner when they came in a pull on version like my white jeans!



I fell in love with Kimono's last Summer and couldn't be more thrilled they are also on trend for this Spring and Summer.  They are perfect for throwing on in an over air conditioned room and dress up any ordinary outfit.  They also look great with shorts or a bathing suit!




I hope you all enjoyed this little walk down memory lane!  April was a fun month for The Suburban Style Life, can't wait to see what y'all are loving in May.

XOXO,
Karen

Top Statement Earrings from Amazon



Hello friends, Happy Monday!  I hope you all had a great weekend.  I am slowly recovering from hosting Nicholas's birthday party, 9 little boys at an ice arena.  There were hockey sticks and pucks flying all over the place!  LOL!!  He had a great time though, hockey is slowly turning his favorite sport and I am loving his passion for it.

Amazon is slowly turning into my favorite place to shop for earrings.  I love that the statement earring trend has continued on from last year and very excited to add to my collection.  A good pair of statement earrings can truly transform and outfit from boring to amazing!  Although statement earrings can look heavy or uncomfortable to wear, these are all very light.  

I am also loving my Bamboo bag which is also a new favorite from Amazon!  I have seen these adorable bags all around Instagram and though what a perfect piece to serve as a backdrop for a photo and for the perfect Summer date night!

Are you loving the statement earrings trend?  Where do you love to shop for earrings?  I would love to know!!  Drop your recommendation in the comments below.


Have a great Tuesday!!

XOXO,
Karen

My Top 6 Spring Casual Shoes


LEOPARD SHOESWEDGE SNEAKERS / CONVERSE CHUCKS / ANKLE BOOTIES / QUILTED SNEAKERS / ADIDAS SNEAKERS

Happy Friday friends!I hope you are all having a great week.  Has Spring sprung for you yet?  We are certainly experiencing the temperature roller coaster that this season brings with it.  Snow one day, sunshine and warm weather the next.  You know it's Spring when you are washing sweatshirts and shorts all in the same load of laundry!

I am excited to share with you my Top 6 casual shoes to transition us from Winter to Spring. Is anyone else excited at the thought of retiring your Winter boots for the season? I am SO ready!!  All of these shoes are under $60 and closed toe so even though you are Spring ready, your pedicured toes (or lack there of) don't have to be just yet.  LOL!!



I am absolutely loving my new black wedge tennis shoes from Payless, I was able to snag a pair before they sadly went out of business.  No worries if you didn't have a chance to grab a pair, I found pretty much the same pair over on Amazon.  



I am also loving my new leopard print canvas shoes from Target and know I will be getting a lot of use out of them this Spring.



I purchased my Converse Chucks last Spring and they look as good as new!  They hold up really well and go with perfectly with both jeans and shorts.  I love how they give a pop of white to any outfit.





I am so in love with these black quilted sneakers from Target.  They are a comfortable pair of slip ons that look great with leggings.  If you want to dress up your outfit a little more than just throwing on a pair of tennis shoes, then these shoes are exactly what you need!  They also come in 4 other colors, including a muted blush, the hot spring color.  I may have to grab another pair in that color!



I fell in love with these Target taupe Ankle Booties this Winter and love that they are versatile enough for Spring.   They look adorable with any color of denim and truly dress up any look.  

I have been wanting a pair of these Grand Court Adidas sneakers since they started trending last Summer, they look absolutely adorable with leggings and are super comfy.  The perfect shoe for running errands or to your kiddos sports activity.  I grabbed mine at TJMaxx or you can grab yourself a pair at DSW.  They are always having sales and your can earn $10 off your first order by subscribing to their email list!

Have an amazing weekend and a blessed Easter!

XOXO,
Karen

What I Wore | March 2019


Happy Thursday friends!  I hope you are all having a fabulous week.  I wanted to take a moment to recap what I wore in March, along with a few cute looks from February.  Here in Cleveland, March wasn't super snowy, however, it was super COLD!  It was hard to even think about wearing anything that didn't include fleece but I do have a few cute looks that I am excited to share with you today!  I can't wait to put away those warm fleece pieces this weekend as we are expecting seasonably warm temps.




This outfit is pretty much my dressy "Mom Uniform" when I want to look put together.  The top is the infamous Nordstrom Roll Sleeve Tunic.  I absolutely love this top, so much that I own it in FOUR different colors...cream, black, burgundy and teal.  It truly is the perfect top that you can dress up or down.  And you are in luck!!  Nordstrom Rack is now carrying this top in a wide array of colors!  I always wear it with a tank or cami underneath because it is slightly sheer.  Jeans are Old Navy skinnies in a dark blue wash, leopard booties are from Wal Mart.



Here is the same look I wore here back in December.  Such a versatile top!




March was all about wearing our green!  This cardigan is one of my favorites, it's light weight and super versatile for Spring.  I purchased it from Jane and loved it so much, I have it in a few colors.  The perfect layering piece!  My distressed jeans are from Old Navy, the peep toe Booties from Kohl's.




Surprisingly, one of my favorite finds for March is this green striped mariner top from Old Navy.  Jeans are Old Navy skinnies in a dark blue wash, ankle booties are Target.

Which look is your favorite?  Comment below!
Have a fabulous Thursday friends!!

Xoxo,

Karen

Amazon Favorites | March 2019

Hello friends!  Happy Thursday!   Today also marks the official start of Baseball season and a major sign of Spring around here.  I just couldn't be more excited (insert happy dance here) to cheer on my Indians.  Nicholas's hockey season also wrapped up yesterday, he had an absolute blast and fell completely head over heels with the support, however, I would be lying if I didn't admit that I am looking forward to a slightly less hectic schedule... at least until the Spring Soccer season takes over.  Ha!

I am so excited to share with you today my favorite Amazon purchases for March.  I absolutely love these types of posts from other bloggers and can't wait to share with you what I have been loving from Amazon this month.  This March was all about accessorizing! Here in Ohio we are all still wearing our Winter attire, however, slowly growing tired of even are most favorite pieces.  What gives new life to a tired outfit other than new accessories?  Here are a few of my favorite Amazon finds that kept me going even on the coldest days in March:





I have been on the hunt for a new everyday necklace and I absolutely love this piece.  It's the perfect statement necklace but versatile enough to wear it everyday.  It truly goes with everything and I have received so many compliments on it.






Meet my favorite new earrings!!  These Tortoise Shell Earrings are made of Resin and are super light.  They also are the perfect statement earring that will dress up any outfit.  They also come in a huge assortment of colors, I personally love this bold tortoise shell print.  



I have been on the hunt lately with finding good, quality dupes of expensive trendy items.  This Daisy Rose Tote Shoulder Bag is a fabulous bag that has the same look and feel of the Louis Vuitton Neverfull.  There is also a matching wallet on Amazon that I am obsessed with and would love to add to my cart!!!  I also came across on Instagram this awesome Purse Organizer Insert hat fits this tote perfectly!  It comes in several different sizes so be sure to measure your bag before ordering.  I ordered it in the Large Size to fit this particular tote.


Living Proof Products


I used to purchase all of my professional hair products at Ulta, however, I quickly found that I can purchase the same products for a few dollars less on Amazon.  I love how Amazon also carries the trial sizes so if you want to try a product without committing to the full size with the full price that comes along with it, I highly recommend ordering the trial size.  Living Proof is quickly becoming one of my new favorite product brands, I don't think I have tried anything that I don't completely love yet.  My two favorite products are the Living Proof Dry Volume Blast and their Dry Shampoo.  A few months ago, I reviewed both the Dry Volume Blast compared to the Oribe Texturizing Spray.  Two very similar products and I am yet to name a favorite of the 2.  The Living Proof is half the price of the Oribe so that is a big win in my book!!  If you would like to watch my full review of both products, please click HERE.

What have are your Amazon favorites for March?  Comment below and share your finds!

I hope you all have an amazing weekend!!!

Xoxo,

Karen
