Top 15 under $100 - week 5!


I seem to be in a celebratory mood today! Here's some fun glittery pieces to celebrate the (almost) end of the week! Just a touch can go a long way...


This week, it finally started feeling like fall, but it's kind of an awkward point for me where I don't know what pair of shoes to wear. It's still kind of warm but still cooler so I never really know if sandals are appropriate or not. I've decided you can never go wrong with a great pair of flats and here are some that I am definitely dreaming of wearing this week!


One of my favorite online shopping sites is They have a great selection of designers, and believe it or not, there are plenty of items to choose from for under $100. Here are five under $100 that I wouldn't mind adding to my closet:

Jessica Alba Look for Less < $ 128

Jessica Alba can always be counted on for casual-chic looks on her time off... I love this look, it's perfect for late summer or can easily transition to fall with a jacket added!

Katie Holmes Look for Less <$90

I am loving this casual Katie Holmes look. My sweater isn't the same color as Katie's but it is the same style and for only 17 bucks it's a steal! I love how she pairs it with the cheetah flats to add more fun to the polka dot sweater!

Rachel Bilson Look For Less < $136

Good ol' Rachel is at it again with another great casual look.  Boyfriend jeans paired with a blazer has become a favorite combo of mine.  I love this moto-inspired jacked from Old Navy-it has a blazer shape, but with a bit of an edge.

Top 15 under $100 - week 4


Black has always been a staple in my wardrobe... this past summer I ditched it for lots of whites and brighter colors. But with the seasons changing I am excited to bring it back again! Here are some great black & dark grey accents I'm loving...


This week I've been on the search for a new blazer for fall. There is one at J.Crew that I love but it's a little out of my price range. Here are some blazers both low and high priced that I really am loving this week!

I made the hour trek to the closest LOFT today for the first time-and let me tell you-LOFT and I are now BFFs. The photos of their merch online just do not do them justice. I pretty much wanted to buy the whole store, but unfortunately my credit cards don't go that high. Here are just a few great items from the store all at under $100 (Psst-I bought the bottom sweater and skirt):

Olivia Palermo Look for Less <$95

Oh Olivia, you never disappoint with your flawless looks! I love the black and navy combination and the ruffle skirt! Then she tops it off with her trademark red nails!
