A Three-Season Buffalo Check Midi Skirt for UNDER $30

Last spring I purchased the CUTEST, most versatile buffalo check midi skirt from Target. I’ve worn this skirt so many times since I bought it, I’ve lost count. It’s super summery when you pair it with certain pieces, but I also love how well it transitions into fall. In Texas, the weather is constantly going back and forth between cold and warm during the months of October and November, so I like to keep many of my warm-weather pieces easily accessible, even when it’s technically the fall season. This skirt in particular is the perfect example of one of those three-season pieces; perfect for spring, summer, AND fall. And on top of that, it’s a whooping $29 from Target’s Who What Wear collection. Talk about bang for your buck, right? It’s very flattering (even after a date night full of tacos and margaritas — believe me, I would know) and…

My Style Philosophy

"Low, Low, High"

Low. Low. High. — What does that mean? Let me explain.

I love putting looks together, whether it’s interior design, my own outfits, or my kid's clothes. I go by a rule that is two-thirds “affordable” and one-third "a splurge.” Life is all about balance, and I love finding good deals and pairing them with high-end, specialty pieces.
Here on AmyHorany.com, you will find that I follow this philosophy to the fullest. My go-to stores are Target, Marshall's, HomeGoods and Amazon, but I also love splurging from time to time as well. My goal for this platform is for my eye-for-design to help you find your own balance in life & style.


Knock Off Serena & Lily Hanging Chairs

Yup. You heard that right. KNOCK OFF Serena & Lily Hanging Chairs. Christmas came early folks, because I’m sharing with you one of my best finds yet. Everyone knows about those amazing Serena & Lily hanging chairs that we’ve seen spread across Pinterest over the last few years, but unfortunately they’re nearly $700 EACH. I’ve wanted a pair ever since I discovered them, but my pockets just couldn’t seem to take the plunge. After months of research (aka lots of online shopping — you’re welcome!) I finally found a nearly identical match to those beloved Serena & Lily beauties. They’re made by Belham Living, and are sold by Hayneedle. I found them on Walmart.com as well, but I think the price was a little better through Hayneedle. They’re right around $300 each, and come in two colors. I really wanted the “natural” color, but with my existing patio furniture, “white”…

Amazon Lately: Tassel Earrings

For those of you who don’t know, Amazon is AMAZING. It’s always full of surprises, and sadly, I’ve developed a bit of an addiction to it. I mean — Who doesn’t love getting a box of goodies delivered to their house on a monthly… weekly… er… daily basis? If I can order it on Amazon, I will. Even my jewelry. Though shopping at overpriced boutiques might be a fun afternoon out with the girls, I have a real hard time paying $80 for a pair of earrings that I know I can find online for $15. Heck. Maybe even $10. Especially if they’re trendy like tassel earrings. I have a feeling this look won’t be in style forever, so I really don’t want to pay an arm and a leg for the designer version. I’d much rather get a few pairs in different colors and pay $15 or less for…



Family Style: Holiday Pictures

Is it just me, or is anyone else hesitant to do holiday-themed family photos? It’s like, I want to do them SO BAD, but the practical side of me is like… 2 kids… 1 husband… matching(ish) outfits for 4 people… preferably non-screaming children, which means coming up with a good bribe to keep them pleasant… good weather… carving out a time of day where all 4 members of the family are happy and available, PLUS making sure the photographer is available too… Ok. I already need a glass of wine just THINKING about those logistics! I had a holiday backdrop all planned out, but I ultimately decided that practicality was going to win. I don’t know the next time we’ll get a family photo scheduled, so I wanted a setting that wasn’t too holiday(esque) so we could hang these photos in the new house and not have to worry about…
