Daily Deal: Spring Blouses | The Cheap Chica's Guide to Style

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.

Spring Style: Lilliana x Oasis

Written By: Lilliana Vazquez

There’s nothing I love more than discovering new brands. I discovered Oasis last year and have a been a loyal fan ever since. Their blend of contemporary styles and functional basics has made them a go-to online destination for me. And while they don’t have any stores in the US just yet, they’re a pretty big deal across the pond with more than 300 stores in the UK…with those kinds of numbers you know they must be doing something – or in their case – many things right. Accessible prices, speedy shipping and trend-right picks that you won’t find anywhere else.

Speaking of picks, I’ve done all the hard work for you and hand-selected my twelve favorite Oasis items in my first edit for their website…

Budget Babe: Natural Beach Waves

Written By: Robin Reetz

With festival season beginning and the promise of summer-worthy warm temps on their way, we’re thinking ahead to our warm weather beauty routines. The first thing on our wishlist? Beach waves.

If you’re lucky enough to score waves naturally, then we really envy you. For the rest of us, there’s a little hope thanks to Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray. Featuring both dead sea salt and sea kelp, this product promises natural waves. Simply spray, let your hair dry or aid the waves with the help of a diffuser, and let the magic begin.

And we almost forgot the best part: NYM’s Beach Babe spray is only $5.99, so you can use it liberally all summer long. Get ready!

Written By: Robin Reetz

Sometimes the best way to master spring style is with separates. With that in mind, at Cheap Chica’s we’re lusting over the Floral Skort at ASOS.Daily Deal: River Island Floral Skort

Imagine this adorable floral River Island skort with a crop top or even a plain white tee, a bucket bag, and some sweet sandals. Warm-weather style doesn’t get any easier…or cuter! We’re obsessed.

It’s priced at a do-able $56.44, but we’d recommend that you give it a few days. ASOS is notorious for offering added discounts, so sign up for their newsletter and wait for the savings to roll in.

Trend Alert: Bucket Bags

Trend Alert: Bucket Bags

Written By: Robin Reetz

Bucket bags are everywhere this spring and we couldn’t be more into this trend. Big enough to hold your necessities but smaller than a shoulder bag, tote, or hobo, a bucket bag is really the perfect size for spring.Trend Alert: Bucket Bags

We love this Cross-Body Bucket Bag ($26.99) at Charlotte Russe, Old Navy’s Faux-Leather Bucket Bag ($32.99), ZARA’s Drawstring Bucket Bag ($35.99), and this luxe-looking David Jones Drawstring Bucket Bag ($42.95) from Lori’s Shoes.

So what do you say – will you go bucket for spring, or is there another style you’re loving instead?
