Every week I tell myself that it will be the week that I blog six days in a row. And every week, I just feel really proud of myself for getting out two posts + Weekend Reading! Except this week I spent so little time reading blogs that I didn't even get to Weekend Reading. However, I've done plenty of online "window shopping," so I want to introduce a new series - Favorites Under $50!
My thought process behind this is that when I shop, I like to invest in classic pieces that can be worn multiple ways. With trendy pieces, I'm not so worried about the quality of the item, because it's probably only going to be in my closet for a season or two. This series will be mostly trendy pieces, with a few major steals mixed in from time to time.
Steve Madden Monrowe Tassel Sandal ($47.96) || Tassel and pom-pom sandals are so on trend right now, but the price tags aren't so hot. I think the muted tones of the tassels will make these more versatile than the sandals with hot pink and neon oranges tassels and poms. These were marked down from $80 and available in sizes 5.5 - 9.
Lush Surplice Maxi Dress ($48) || Surprise! Another black dress making an appearance on SS! I feel uncomfortable in short dresses, but I really like that this has a short lining covered by sheer fabric. This would be perfect for a bachelorette party or a night out! This dress comes in eight colors and patterns.
Chill Out Cooler Tote ($32) || Confession - I totally did not understand the phrase on the bag until I realized that it was a cooler bag. And now I'm convinced that I need it for pool days and road trips or maybe even an over sized lunch bag in the rare occasion that I start packing my lunch for work.
Going Out Shirt ($34) || It's very rare that I go out, but I think this top would be super cute for running errands on weekends. I also think this could be adorable if worn on a bachelorette party! (Is it obvious that everyone around me is getting married?)
Cut-off Denim Shorts ($34.95) || I bought a pair of these shorts a few weeks ago (see them on my Instagram here) and I'm obsessed with them. I don't know how these can be Daisy Duke length without my bum hanging out in the back, but they are and it doesn't. They come in four shades - white, light denim, dark denim, and black.
J. Crew Factory Gingham Shell Top ($35.50) || I love gingham because it's so sweet and Southern, but this shell is sassy at the same time. I would pair it with white jeans and maybe even a casual navy blazer for Casual Friday.
Lilly Pulitzer Crab Earrings ($28) || I have a few pairs of Lilly Pulitzer earrings, and I wear them on repeat because they're shockingly versatile. (I wear the same pair to work and to galas.) These are on my wishlist because they're the perfect blend of polished and fun.
Now you tell me - what's your favorite under $50 this week?! I hope that y'all are having an amazing weekend! Mine definitely did not go as planned, but that's life! Haha.
