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!

Friday Find Under $50

J.Crew shorts, $45

If you don’t have a pair of red shorts already, this is one item you’ll want to snag before summer. I wear mine at least once a week with everything from ultra preppy nautical stripes to a simple grey tee (speaking of which, these Old Navy t-shirts are my favorite and they’re just $9.50 each).

Valentine’s Day is a fun excuse to go over the top with loving gestures, eat as many mini cupcakes as possible, and wear red shoes. Dave surprised me with a Swarovski trinket box. It’s such a glamorous way to store delicate jewelry. I gave him this cordovan money clip wallet (without the logo) that’s handmade in Milwaukee and lobster-print boxers to match my pajama pants. Matching pjs is definitely a sign of true love.

Every year, I use a portion of my tax return to splurge on a sartorial item I wouldn’t otherwise purchase. The first year was a DVF wrap dress, the next was a YSL arty ring (back when it was still $195), then a Rebecca Minkoff MAC bag, followed by two years of Kate Spade "Karolina" pumps. I’ve never regretted any of these investment pieces and I’m especially thrilled with this year’s item: a pair of timeless Ferragamo “Varina” flats.

I’m just as enamored with Aubin & Wills’ dapper fox as I am with the mittens I purchased late last year.

For Home | For You

A classic mix of red, white and blue is always a welcome addition to your home or wardrobe. Of course the color scheme can tread dangerously into nautical territory, but these items keep seafaring to a minimum. At home, try a navy and white pillow in a scalloped design, or a red lacquered tray. For you, the ruffled tank by Sea is a darling option. (In fact, many of Sea’s pre-fall items are too fantastic to miss.)

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
