And Now, Every Insanely Affordable Item I Bought Because of Social Media

Surprise, surprise—Instagram is yet again the source behind my latest fashion purchases. Specifically, three of my favorite follows for outfit ideas Janelle Lloyd, Lihn Niller, and Lisa Allen have convinced me that the spring collection worth shopping right now is Scoop. The affordable brand is home to many on-trend pieces and some really solid staples (think skinny jeans and T-shirts), too. After repeatedly seeing the brand on these three women, I knew I had to browse the under-$100 apparel and accessories for myself. And by browse, I mean immediately purchase an entire season's worth of items. Wait until you see their looks before you start judging my willpower.

This dress really deserves to be worn to a party, but a quiet date night for two will suffice for now. The micro-floral print and very much on-trend bubblegum pink color are what initially drew me in, but the ruffle bottom and dramatic puff-sleeves are the reason I hit "add to cart."

I'm yet again impressed by the power of a blazer. This one proves how easily you can (and should!) transition a dress from the beach to an al fresco dinner.

These pants are as close to sweats as you can get, so I'd recommend purchasing them in every color. (I already did!) They're easy to style with a simple ribbed tank, an oversize sweater, or a knit top like Allen wears here.

I like to refresh my LBD situation at least once a year (or once a season, if I'm feeling wild). This puff-sleeve square-neck option is at the top of my list right now because it's the perfect everyday piece that's surprisingly comfortable.

A matching set means you'll never have to ask yourself, "Do these look good together?" This one is giving me all of the warm-weather vacation vibes I could ever ask for. Remember vacations?

If a print feels like a lot after a year in groutfits, then maybe this solid blue colorway is more your jam.

This outfit is an example of A+ styling. An all-white outfit made up of denim shorts, a graphic T-shirt, and a lightweight duster jacket get a very fashionable upgrade thanks to those black western-inspired ankle boots.

Now, this is how to do a Canadian tuxedo for spring. The slightly oversize jacket and the Bermuda-length shorts feel really modern, and the band tee adds a certain cool factor.

When in doubt, going back to the basics—aka skinny jeans, a simple top, and sandals—is never a bad idea. Just layer on some fun jewelry to personalize the 'fit to your liking.

When comfort is equally as important as style, opt for a maxi dress and long cardigan. Throw on some flatbed sandals à la Lloyd for good measure, which just so happens to be my personal favorite spring shoe trend.

Another outfit that goes from good to great by way of a blazer. This iteration is the perfect layer for the season because of its relaxed fit and scrunched sleeves (which, by the way, are practically begging for you to add on a little wrist party).

I'd ideally like to wear this dreamy knit dress barefoot on a beach in Ibiza, but I'll settle for a stroll around my neighborhood in these simple strappy sandals.

If you're as loyal to the tie-dye trend as I am, you'll want to snap up this $20 sweater top as quickly as possible. I love the pastel shades paired with white denim shorts, but blue jeans are a close second.
