How has your weekend been ladies? Today I have many fun things to share with you. First is a new edition of Pretties Under $100. I have a renewed enthusiasm for shopping as spring nears. Let’s face it, I don’t need much coaxing to want to shop. 🙂 It’s just that all the new, and shiny styles at my favorite storesgive me extra motivation. You can read all my Pretties Under $100 posts here. I’ll also show you how I styled my Popbasic Felicity collection (all Popbasic style posts here), where I officially introduce you to my puppy Emma, and at the end there is even a $800 Nordstrom giveaway. Exciting right? pretties100

When looking for pretties for this week, my eye kept going to transitional spring items. I wanted to find jackets, fresh striped tops, and cute accessories. One of my favorite finds this week is this kimono jacket. Kimono styles are right on trend for spring, and this one has a very pleasant pattern, and color combo.

I thought the bicycle dress was so charming, & whimsical. I envisioned wearing it with these adorable flats. The bicycle dress has the color of the flats in it’s color scheme. All I would add would be a straw bag, and I would have the perfect Saturday farmer’s market/ coffee shop outfit.

I can’t not mention the Halogen clutch. The mixed material of the clutch, and variety of textures on it are very modern, and refreshing. And I love the name. I would surely use this clutch on a date night with hubby.



I’ve purchased Popbasic Felicity, Popbasic’s collection from last month, a while ago ( announced it here on TheBoxQueen Facebook page beginning of February) Since I received the collection, I found it easy to match the super soft grey dress in many outfits.

The long necklace, and the delicate bracelet included in the collection both have been great pieces to add to my jewelry collection. They go with absolutely everything. Remember the cardigan I kept from my February Stitch Fix ? Since that review, I had great feedback from you dear readers. Some of you even emailed and asked different ways I wear the cardigan.

Style Tip: Here is how I paired the cardigan with my Felicity dress. As the dress is a midi, and wearing the cardigan open with it would make the midi frumpy, I tied the front of the cardigan to turn it into a fitted style. I think the printed cardigan added dimension to the solid grey dress, and made it more appropriate for chilly weather. You can see how I tie my cardigans to give my looks some shape in this post as well.


Here is the necklace that comes with Felicity collection. You can purchase the collection with $15 discount using this link. I love the gold, and silver tones in this necklace, and it’s so easy to layer with other pieces.


I want to officially introduce you to our puppy Emma. If you are following me on Instagram you may have met her there. I plan to share my adventures with her from time to time. Her name comes from one of my favorite Jane Austen books. I am not kidding when I say she is like a fourth baby to me; night time potty breaks and all. I am exhausted, but like with all my babies, utterly in love. <3


I love the delicate gold metal bracelet in the Felicity collection. I paired it with the pearl one from Little Lace Box ( also seen here), and finished off the look with the Popbasic grey leather clutch. (originally styled here.)

I can’t wait to hear what you think of Popbasic Felicity, and would love to know the gems you’ve found lately while shopping!

    I’m excited for spring clothes! Unfortunately our weather is not cooperating- still freezing temps here and we’re expecting snow this week, so I have to be patient a little longer. 🙂 Felicity is a nice collection. Love seeing Emma- such a cutie! 🙂

    • Theboxqueen

      Here it is on and off. It’s a couple days of cold weather, then it’s almost spring like for a day giving me hope, and before I know it back to the cold. I am determined to think spring though, at least with the little spring collection that is piling up in my closet waiting to be worn :-)) At least we can shop spring haha. I loved sharing Emma too. She is a sweetheart. <3 Happy new week. XOXO, Elif
