5 under $50

some chic steals and deals to get you through your week– 5 of my current favorites, all under $50

#1 zara fleece jacketone of my best purchases this fall, half coat/half sweater, this blanket style feels soft as a bathrobe but is tailored enough to wear to work. see me debuting it on insta here.

#2 beaded tassels. ladies in love with the oscar de la renta tassels, look no further. this etsy shop has jaw dropping identical options all for $49

#3 h&m biker jeans – pair with a cozy sweatshirt, beanie and sneaks for a perfect errand running outfit.

hm-pants

#4 western belt – as many of us know, the model/trendy fashionista clan has been rocking western style belts for some time. while i am a little skeptical on how long this fad will stick around, at $6 you can test drive it for yourself and say goodbye when its on to the next thing.

#5 twist-front teewhile technically it rings in slightly above $50, if you sign up for the club monaco email program you can get it for $50.15 (does anyone else think of isla fisher in bachelorette when you hear club monaco? if you havent seen this movie, just do it). my friends know i am notoriously cheap for buying tees— my go to’s are always scoop neck t-shirts from h&m, Target turtlenecks and long sleeved jersey ones from the cynthia rowley for TJmaxx line. seriously, i never pay more than $30– because i end up throwing them away after a season or two and buying all new. however, the detail on this one makes it worth the extra dough and i made the mistake of trying it on at the store– lit-er-a-lly-yyyy the softest. sold.

***honorable mention to these amazing dv for Target mule boots ringing in for only $27!!! you, my bootie friends, didn’t get featured in the top 5 because you arent available online and/or in stores anywhere in my size. grrrrr. so i didnt want you gals to feel the sadness/anger/disappointment flooding my emotions when i see them. target reps— call me, i want them. their parent brand dolce vita has them online here at a much higher price. nnneeeew thank you.

#1 MSGM. debating maxing out my credit card for these lovely floral babies. hoping shopbop will hold their f&f sale before it gets to that point!

#2 nasty gal. metallic + geometric makes the perfect match. this pair could also do double duty with a silk top and midi skirt for an evening on the town.

#3 rebecca minkoff. these velvet babies are subtler than some of the other pairs, but sadly sold out in most sizes. you can bet this cp is already signed up for the waitlist.

stellar swap

does anyone else remember paris hilton’s infamous music debut ‘stars are blind’? i cant help but think of the lyrics as i drool over these celestial logan hollowell constellation earrings. love you long time.

luckily for us earthly mortals, bauble bar came out with a similar crawler version. ive also found a middle of the road rose gold version on net-a-porter and one-offs by etsy artisans here and here. getting myself a pair must be written in the stars…

aamaya by priyanka

steal her style #4

i found this look while perusing the latest fashion week street snaps and loved how this girl nailed a transitional look. the color palette and oxford shoes scream “ready for fall” while a mini skirt shows off still tan from summer legs and the fringey bag has the vibe of coachella days gone by. get her look with my picks below…

#1 the top. it was surprisingly difficult to find a delicate yet simple long sleeved top option. as a major sweater girl myself, im drawn to this cropped isabel marant knit, but the outfit would also look amazing with a see by chloe bell sleeved top, in either navy or cream (love the buttoned back!).

 

#2 the shoes. im willing to bet this lucky b is wearing a stella mccartney pair, but you can snag a near identical twin for much less thanks to our friends at h&m

 

#3 the skirt. i’m having a girl crush moment on tanya taylor right now (the outnet has a great selection currently) which explains why i die for this diagonal fringe mini, but banana has a cleaner pin stripe version on clearance here

 

#4 the bag. since my skirt has fringe on it, i went with a streamlined jcrew mini messenger in a contrasting color (only $100!) but her exact bag is by chloe. im also obsessed with this quilted maje style if you want black– i saw it in person at saks and the leather feels like buttah.

 

#5 the sunglasses. keep it classic in gold rimmed oliver peoples aviators, which add a slightly 70s vibe with gradient lenses.

 

thats all i’ve got today– hope this inspires you to dig through your closet and wear something you otherwise wouldn’t. have a great wednesday! im currently sick in bed so apologies for the delayed upload this morning.
