Whether you’re celebrating Easter this weekend or not, we figure everyone can use a little more pastel, floral, or chocolate in their lives…right? For this week’s Links We Love, we’re rounding up our favorite Easter-ish links from the web.
Have a great weekend!

Now that temperatures are finally warming up, we’re updating our wardrobe all across the board. And one very important part of that wardrobe? Our handbag.
Topshop to the rescue, with their on-trend pastel Clean Satchel. At only $56 and in perfect baby blue, we plan on rocking this all season long.
Topshop, you’ve done it again.
In case you’ve been under a rock and missed the news, we’re here to tell you that Mad Men is BACK. This week saw the premiere of part one of two of the series finale, and we’re more obsessed with ever.
One of our favorite characters, Betty Draper – aka January Jones – was recently spotted at JFK Airport showing her off -screen style. As you might imagine it’s a bit different from Betty’s style, but we still love it.
Betty (err, January) is sporting a pair of on-trend, distressed STRÖM jeans which we absolutely love but are a little out of our price range at $298. If you want to mimic January’s distressed denim look, try The Bryce Jean ($98 at Need Supply Co.), the Denim Darling Boyfriend Jeans ($27.80 at Forever21), or the Destructed Skinny Boyfriend Denim ($29.99 at Target).

Call us nerdy if you will, but we love stylish tech accessories. Seriously: you accessorize your outfits, why not also accessories your tech?
The adorable cord organizers, headphones, and phone cases at Eastern Collective definitely satisfy our tech-session. Pieces range in price from a super-low $9.95 to only $32.95, meaning that you can afford everything sold by Eastern Collective. How great is that?
Now if you’ll excuse us, we’re going to go snatch up the GreyScale Collective Cable ($17.95), the Orion Leather Wrap ($16.95), and the iPhone 5 Case in beautiful Hudson Blue ($23.95). What are you getting?
Last week, I announced an exciting partnership with one of my favorite brands – Oasis. They may just be getting their start in the US but they’re HUGE in the UK…and by that, I mean they have over 300 stores!
Needless to say, they have some pretty killer spring styles. I recently did a Style Edit of my favourite spring pieces, and this week will be taking you through the details: that’s right, we’re talking accessories. I’ve edited down the Oasis Spring 2014 accessories collection to a mere five products, including the Turquoise Fan Collar Necklace that will add interest to even the most basic of tank tops ($49) and a super bold structured bag – I can’t get enough of the Jemima Satchel ($45).
Looking for some new shoes because, well, aren’t you always? The hot pink Eve Mid Heel Court should satisfy that itch at only $62.
And rounding out this Cheap Chica’s approved mix is the perfect spring carryall – the Yellow Metal Shopper ($72) and the gorgeous Limited Edition Flower Necklace at only $49.
Next week, we’ll walk you through a few more of my favorite picks. Until then, you can see my complete Oasis 2014 edit here. Happy shopping!

In the world of smart shopping, ZARA is a Cheap Chica favorite. This Spanish retailer has trend forecasting mastered, and the prices for these trendy pieces? They’re not so bad either.
Needless to say, we wait for the day that a ZARA lookbook shows up in our inbox. The new Woman lookbook for April and May was just released and we’re feeling super inspired – seriously, if this lookbook was any longer, our Pinterest might explode.
Here are a few of our favorite looks:
We made it, Cheap Chicas! Catch-up on your reading before you take off on Friday. Whatever you’re up to, have a great weekend!

6 must-follow fashion blogs. (College Fashion)
Call us crazy, but sometimes it feels like blouses don’t get the attention they deserve. In the warmer months, plain tees and tanks often become our separates of choice and when it’s really hot, a summer dress is the only way to go.
Luckily Bluefly has reminded us how great blouses can be thanks to their designer blouse sale, where certain styles are up to 80% off.
We love the bold pattern of the Wyatt Blue and Black Palm Tree Printed T-Shirt (77% off at $14.97), the super chic Romeo & Juliet Pocket Detail Tank (63% off at $35.39), and the gorgeous Greylin White ‘Ollie’ Cutout Top (47% off at $51.75).
Give the blouse a second chance this spring. Thanks to Bluefly, there’s never been a better time to try than now.
