Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking...

I still chuckle to myself over that line from "The Devil Wears Prada," which is probably one of my favorite movies ever. And now I really want to watch it... 😏

Groundbreaking or not, I'm obsessed with florals more than ever thing spring. Don't you feel like they're having a huge moment?? As soon as I saw this outfit on Taylor of Little Blonde Book, I knew I wanted to find a similar blouse in my price range (I'm obsessed with the Equipment one she's wearing!). Enter this budget friendly blouse that's only $18! I honestly can't believe it's so cheap, because the cut and quality are excellent.  

In the spirit of super affordable florals, I rounded up 15 spring floral pieces under $50...

Love, Lenore: 5 of my favorite drugstore hair products

As part of my plan to share more beauty posts (and more drugstore/bargain beauty) this year, today I'm sharing 5 drugstore hair products I absolutely love and repurchase! I recently shared some drugstore makeup products I love in this post if you're curious.

I'm always trying to save money here, there and everywhere, because my ultimate priorities are to travel and make my house cute! So, when I find bargain beauty products that work just as well as the high-end brands, there's not much that's more exciting for me.

Let's get started...


Giovanni Ultra Moist shampoo & conditioner with avocado and olive oil - amazing drugstore hair products
5 drugstore hair products I love | Love, Lenore

1 & 2 | Giovanni 2chic Ultra Moist Shampoo & Conditioner (with avocado & olive oil)
As someone with baby fine hair, I've always shied away from moisturizing shampoos, because they typically weigh my hair down in a not-so-cute way. But that's not the case with this duo! These make your hair so smooth and shiny (yasssss avocado 🙌) without weighing it down or giving it a weird texture. If you color your hair, these are fantastic to mix into your arsenal to balance out heat and color damage! These run only about $8 each and can be found at Walgreens and Amazon (and some Wal-marts and Targets).

3 | Batiste Hint of Color Dry Shampoo
I tried one of Batiste's dry shampoos years ago and felt pretty ehhh about it, but when I finally tried the Brilliant Blonde variety I was hooked. It works like a charm to soak up any greasiness (yes to less hair washing!), brightens up the roots, and adds awesome texture. It comes in 3 color varieties for you non-blondies and is only $9 - holla!

4 | Not Your Mother's Double Take Dry Finish Texture Spray
This is probably my #1 holy grail hair product and I've used it for years now. It's the key to my messy waves, and to making my ridiculously fine hair look much thicker than it actually is. I've tried texture sprays by several high ends brands, and I always come back to this goodness. I'm totally fine with that because it's only $5.99!

5 | TRESemme Beauty Full Volume Flexible Finish Hairspray
TRESemme hairsprays have always been my go-to, but this one is my favorite. It has great hold without making your hair sticky, and it's only $5!

Do you have any ride-or-die drugstore hair products I should know about?? My bestie Brianna of Gingham & Glam blogged some of her holy grail beauty products this week, and had two of the same hair products! Check out her post here.

I have been so much more inspired lately, and just love all the spring styles this year! I probably need to put the brakes on my online shopping, but it's all so good right now! haha. I admittedly struggle with winter styling, so I'm welcoming spring with open arms and fresh outfit ideas 😉 

These high-waisted mom jeans are such a steal, and I'm obsessed with them! They're really high-waisted and come in a ton of different washes. I also immediately knew I needed this off-the-shoulder top because the tie details are perfection! I always love a top with some detail. These heeled mules are so cute and comfy, and they're under $30! I couldn't believe it. I love ordering trendy shoes from Target so that I can try out a trend without making an investment. And last but not least, I got these Le Specs 'Liar Liar' sunglasses last summer, and to my surprise  have worn them through all seasons! They're comfortable, just the right amount of unique/funky, and meet my oversized requirement. I've purchased every single pair of my sunglasses from Shopbop because they have an amazing selection and carry my three favorite brands (Le Specs, Quay, and Karen Walker)!

I hope you're having a great week! Trey and I both work for a school district and are off this week for spring break. We usually travel on school breaks, but decided to have a little staycation this time, and it's been so nice to catch up on things after being sick last week.   

Short-Sleeve Sweatshirt

I had to buy this Free People short-sleeve sweatshirt as soon as I saw it. It's so comfy + cute! I love that you can throw it on with jeans and sneakers to run errands, and then simply upgrade to an ankle boot and a couple of other accessories for a really cute casual look. It does run a little big though, fyi (I'm wearing a small).

Also, a few random shopping notes since I was absent from the blog last week.... 

My dusty blue Rebecca Minkoff bag is back in stock this spring! You can see it in posts here, here and here

I discovered a new-to-me brand called Re:named and ordered the cutest floral dress on sale for $42 that you'll see on here soon!

Abercrombie jeans are on sale for $35 today! I'm definitely going to order this high-waisted pair, but may pick out another pair too.

Sugarfix, the Baublebar x Target collection that I'm obsessed with, is buy-one-get-one 50% off both in-stores and online this week (through the 25th)! I have these star earrings and get so many compliments on them.

Hi!!! I'm so happy to be back to blogging after an unplanned week off. Last weekend the weather was crappy so I couldn't shoot, and then on Sunday I got hit with the flu and it took me out for dayyss. So, after what felt like weeks of not blogging or posting on Instagram, I'm so happy to be back! As much as that sucked, maybe a break was what I needed because now I'm feeling excited about blogging again! I also love that a new season has arrived (happy first day of spring!). I'm always inspired by new seasons, and have so many cute new things I can't wait to show you!

One of them is this adorable romper from Maude Boutique! I love a romper that you can dress up or down, and this is definitely one of those. I will say that it's a little hard to pee while wearing this (due to the buttons down the back 😂), but I definitely made it work because it really is so cute. Be sure to check out Maude's new arrivals for spring because there are so many cute pieces, and you can get 15% off your order with code LOVELENORE15!
