TREND ALERT: Treggings under $50

For those who thought that the legging and all its derivatives were on it way out, I am sorry to disappoint but this new edition proves that skinny pants aren't going anywhere. In fact, the legging is loved so much, it's launching beyond jeggings to your dress pants.

May I introduce the Tregging, a combination of the loved legging with the chic trouser to create an office friendly version of the super comfy pant. The result? A sleek and chic look that can go from brunch to the board room to the bar without getting uncomfortable.

Here are my top picks for this trend, all under $50. Happy Saturday loves!

TREND ALERT: Ruffle Tops $50 and Under
More proof that maximalism is going to be the move for Spring and Summer, the return of the ruffle.

But these aint your granny's ruffles. Nope, these ruffles embellish sleeves, dangle from sides, and are even stacked on top of each other.

And these ruffles aren't merely for show. When added to flowy tops, ruffles give a free spirited flair. And when paired to more structured fabrics, ruffles give the look a put together, lady like feel.

Here are 13 different ruffle tops, from the easy flowing to the avant garden stacked ruffle, all for $50 and under. Happy Friday!

Pajama dressing is nothing new. The trend popped up about 2 years ago and has held a comfy chic reign upon us ever since.

What is new is that pajama style pieces are becoming more affordable, easier to wear, and innovative in their styling. So whether it is the romper that has traditional pj style piping that shows up to brunch on Sunday or it is the edgy belted sleeveless blazer that makes it to the meeting on Monday, pajama pieces have come a long way and are ready to make their way into your wardrobe.

Here are my top picks of the trend for Spring, all at $50 or under. Enjoy loves.
