It’s time for another splurge vs. save post, because we love looking good for less! If you’re ITK when it comes to this year’s seasonal trends, then you know sporty skirts are all the rage this summer. This athletic chic look mixes preppy and practical pieces for a look that will take you from a morning on the courts to an afternoon lunch on the boat. Or just, like, running errands around town, dropping the kids off at camp, wistfully gazing out at your backyard wishing you had panoramic views of the Long Island Sound…whatever. See our summer splurge vs. save inspiration below.

If you’ve been following me for awhile now, then you know how much I love my Erin Condren planner and stickers! It’s been the thing that keeps my chaotic schedule at my fingertips!

Well, Tori over at Erin Condren just told me that they launched their limited edition spring surprise box and only made a few hundred of them!! So of course I had to grab mine before posting it here 🤣

It is a hand picked assortment of exclusive and best selling items perfect for the spring season approaching! This would make a great gift for the person who needs a little motivation or inspiration too – it comes in this pretty reversible gift box!

This box is set to be shipped in a few weeks so hurry and grab yours before they sell out! [I have a feeling it’ll be in the next day or so] You can grab one for $40 shipped!!! ($80 value)
