The Burberry nova check pattern is classic and so recognizable. It is also preppy chic and will really elevate your outfit! I always totally related to Blair Waldorf, so I've naturally been growing my own headband collection. I'd been on the hunt for a nova check Burberry headband, and came across this one listed for $50 + free shipping on Mercari. I offered $42 and the buyer accepted! Such a steal for a designer headband in excellent condition.
It's hard to come across authentic designer pieces online, but I actually found two super similar Burberry headbands through The Real Real that you can shop below! They have their own authentication experts so you know you are getting the real deal. Plus TRR is having 20% off with the code REAL right now! These are the only two being offered on the site right now, so I recommend scooping it up before someone else!
But I totally get that spending that much money on one single headband can be out of reach. Below I've linked some other cute plaid check alternatives that also give some serious Burberry vibes! You can shop by just clicking the pics below.
My favorite/super easy outfit combo lately has been tank top + high waisted jeans and when I came across these bodysuit/leotards at Nordstrom Rack I picked up one to try it out. I like a clean, simple look and it was kind of a pain to keep track of my tank top to make sure it was always tucked in. Turns out I LOVED the bodysuit and went back to Nordstrom Rack to pick up every other color they have!

Why I loved this bodysuit so much?
- The low square neck adds a really feminine silhouette
- The sides of the bodysuit and the thickness of the straps make it so easy to hide a bra
- The bottom is a thong so no panty lines!
- The material is stretchy but doesn't stretch out
Some colors are even cheaper online than the ones I picked up in store, you can shop them below by clicking directly on the stock photos! I definitely recommend picking up a few, plus when you spend $50 at Nordstrom rack you get free shipping! I'm a size 2/4 and picked up a size small which fits great, so it's pretty TTS.
The Gucci belt is a TheRealReal find from a couple years ago, but I've linked a few below that TRR currently has in stock. Remember that when you register an email to make an account with them you get $25 off your order, plus they currently have a discount going on for an extra 20% off!
I've had these Gap jeans for over a year now and they are such a such great wardrobe staple. I find high rise jeans so flattering on so many body types, plus they are cropped which I love. I'm 5'8" and in between a regular and tall size, so I don't have to worry about awkward length jeans with these. They are currently on sale below!
Lastly, the Golden Goose sneaker dupes I can NOT stop wearing! They are super comfortable and I wear them for long thrifting/sourcing days. Plus they look so similar to the originals at a super small fraction of the price. Some are currently as low as $14! I might pick up a second pair...
