Here are my under $50 picks:
[1.0] Loving this crocheted, peplum tank!
Perfect for date nights or nights out with your friends! I love the style of the thick straps; it is flattering on everyone! Peplum is flattering on all body types, too. I love peplum, and I know I've mentioned this before, but you can eat and drink all you want without being uncomfortable. LOL.
[2.0] These rose gold block heeled sandals!
There is nothing better than a sensible, thick heel to get you comfortably through the day. These Steve Madden sandals are nothing short of fabulous. I love the rose gold metallic choice.
[3.0] Alo leggings in the prettiest color.
I own about 7 pairs of Alo leggings, and to say they're the ideal legging doesn't even do them justice. They are so flattering and SO stylish. I love the ruched detail on this pair! The high-waisted style is what I have in all my pairs, and it really is so flattering.
[4.0] This look alike Givenchy bag.
I just ordered this purse, you guys, because I have been drooling over the super similar Givenchy Antigona bag (and stupid expensive, mind you!) for years. I cannot wait to get it!
[5.0] This floral one-shoulder tank!
I love the colorful floral on the ruffle. I don't know what color I like the most, though! Free People is consistently a win for me with their boho chic styles.
[6.0] The only wedge sandal you'll ever need.
I own 3 pairs of these Toms wedges, and I seriously could stand/walk in them all day long! I have been buying Toms wedges since I lived in the city, and I would get them from Akira. LOL #throwback! But the beauty of them is that they have lasted years! 8 years to be exact! I am on my feet in the classroom all day, and they are pure comfort.
[7.0] If you own Hunters, you NEED these boot socks!
I have two pairs of Hunters, a green pair and a purple pair, that I have had for over 5 years. I am obsessed with them for rain, but I put welly socks on with them in the winter, and they are perfect for high snow! And these socks are GLITTERY!!! Love love love!!!
[8.0] A swing-y workout top for your next Pure Barre class!
I am all about a breezy tank top these days for exercising. I like a lot of openness under the arms and on the back. This comes in a pretty coral color, too! Beyond Yoga pieces are sooooo soft. This would
work great with a fun, strappy sports bra.
[9.0] This open-back workout top for colder months.
I know it's the official start to summer this weekend, but, I am all about stocking up on winter clothes when they go on sale! I am often sooooo cold when I walk into Pure Barre from outdoors that I love having an extra layer on in the winter. Here is the answer to my conundrum!
[10.0] These fancied up sandals-- loving the rose color!
Fun note: these sandals are $40.16 on the Nordstrom sale, but I found them for $34.99 on Off 5th, but the beauty of Nordstroms is they price match! So you can get the free shipping from Nords with the $34.99 price tag. What color do you like best?
What is your Memorial Day Weekend looking like? We have a lot of fun on the horizon! Tonight I am having two of my former dancers over (one who just graduated from Saint Mary's College (like me!) and made it to Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader Training Camp!!!) who are now my close friends. Tomorrow night, our friends and us are going to this new brewery in Elmhurst on the Metra line where you pour your own beers! Sunday we are going to our other friends' BBQ! And then a fancy date night compliments of Finn (lol thank you Anna and Shawn) at our favorite Italian straunt, Villa Verone. We are finishing out the weekend with a gathering of our neighbor pals on Monday! Ah! So excited for all that lies ahead on this long weekend. We are done with school June 9, and I am soooo pumped for a summer of no work, for the first time since I was 14 years old!
