Friday Find Under $50

Rampage bow sandals, $24.99

I promised myself that I wouldn’t post another pair of sandals for this week’s Friday Find Under $50, but I couldn’t pass up these pretty bow sandals that look like the Kate Spade pair I yearned for years ago. I’m debating between mint and red. Which color do you fancy? 

You can find the sandals at a few retailers, but Belk (linked above) is the cheapest. Amazon also has a large selection of available sizes. 

Congratulations to the winners of the JewelMint giveaway: Dianne H., Chelsea T., and Franziska H.! I’ll send you all an email shortly. Thank you to everyone for entering. Your support helps make these giveaways possible - and there’s another on the way!

Luxe for Less: Under $100

With the holidays fast approaching, my “splurges” need to be more frugal. I admit that I’ve already ordered the plaid skirt for casual holiday gatherings, but the interesting cut of the Aldo pumps are next on my must-have list. (Let’s face it, there’s always something to love at a shoe store - especially when Aldo is taking an extra 30% off sale items.)

Shop It: Kate Spade pouch // Aubin & Wills mittens // Sophie Blake for Bauble Bar earrings // Juliet & Company necklace // Aldo shoes // J.Crew Factory skirt // ASOS belt

Top 3: Evening Bags Under $100

When I’m planning an ensemble for a special occasion, it’s usually the handbag that causes the most angst. I know I’m mostly to blame, waiting until the last minute after I’ve spent my budget on the dress, shoes and the can’t-live-without-it lipstick, but it really is difficult to find a beautiful and affordable clutch. Here are three to scoop up now in anticipation of the holiday season.

Shop It: Zara clutch // BCBG clutch // ASOS clutch

Color Crush: Nude & Noir

Neutrals are anything but boring in graphic designs. Classic shapes give you the flexibility to experiment with patterns, like the well-placed colorblocking of this shell.

Shop It: J.Crew top // ASOS purse // Kate Spade belt // Red Valentino dress // Linda Farrow sunglasses // Tory Burch ring // Kate Spade shoes

Snapshot

If you’re following me on Instagram, you know I can’t get enough of this Jeweliq necklace. The black version is now sold out, but the burgundy version is just as pretty.

Coveting: Fall Sparkle

Saying farewell to the end of summer isn’t terribly hard with an abundance of shimmery items to welcome fall.

Shop It: J.Crew skirt // Zara necklace // Topshop shoes // ASOS clutch // Juicy Couture cuff

Wear It: Mint

Mint becomes sophisticated enough for fall in heavy fabrics and structured shapes. Pair it with neutrals (and something sparkly) for maximum impact.

Shop It: (look one) ASOS shirt; Bounkit earrings; J.Crew pants; Kate Spade shoes // (look two) J.Crew dress; ASOS earrings; Tory Burch purse; Aldo shoes
