It's part of my daily routine—and job—to regularly click the "What's New" tab on my favorite clothing brands' websites. Usually, I'm pretty good at predicting what I'll see before the page even loads, but I was floored when I visited Forever 21 yesterday. It's been a minute since I've stepped into an actual store, but I still check their website out of habit since I wore them almost exclusively in my early twenties (I wrote about my relationship with the brand here). I came across so many styles that felt current and that if worn out of context (i.e., not styled on the Forever 21 website), could easily look like they were purchased for hundreds of dollars. It's been years since I've written a "Crave or Save" post, which longtime readers may remember, but their site is filled with options that easily fall into both the "crave" and "save" categories for me. By the way, this post is in no way sponsored—I'm just loving everything they're doing right now and thought it would be fun to share some of these picks with you, many of which I've already purchased.. Here are a few of my favorite items right now:
