Last week I talked about managing money by creating a budget that works for you. Check out my Free Personal Monthly Budget Spreadsheet if you missed out last week! Even though it doesn’t feel like Spring on the east coast, I am determined to manifest some sunshine in my life by searching for summer essentials and so much more.
Shopping can be difficult, especially if you have a unique style that may cause some extra spending. With online shopping and apps like Retailmenot, it’s easy to find deals that will leave you with some extra cash at the end of your spree. If you’ve been out of the styling game for some time, then now is the time to get back into the loop by treating yourself to some new threads.
From solid sandals to flora jumpsuits, below is a list of affordable styling hacks under $100 that will have you feeling warm and fuzzy all over!
Shoes to Die For
The way you rock your footwear says a lot about your personal style. With the weather slowing changing, it can be easy to get comfortable with Uggs and all-weather wear socks. Break out of the norm by buying summer-like shoes now from lolashoetique.
With free domestic shipping on orders over $75, Lola’s has a wide array of fashions that you can’t pass up. What I like about this site is the versatility and sophistication in styles that you can’t find anywhere else for less. Going to a festival? Check. Wedding? Check. With starting prices from $19.99 and up, you’ll be able to stomp the halls of your favorite spots this fall with lolashoetique collections.
Two-piecing it Up
My favorite trend this season are two-piece sets and jumpsuits. Only 5’5 in height I sometimes have trouble finding sets that work for my frame without looking frumpy or shorter in stature. A few places that may be overlooked gems for most women are Forever 21, Old Navy, and New York & Co. These sets can run anywhere between $60-$100, but who wants to spend that much money when you don’t have to.
The key to finding a staple set is by looking at the material in comparison to other pieces of clothing in your wardrobe. If you are accustomed to buying from certain retailers due to its affordability but lack of durability (cheap fabric, uneven seams) then it is best to change your routine and start shopping at better quality brands so that your clothes can last for seasons to come.
Securing the Bag
Who doesn’t love a good hefty bag? Handbags are the icing on the cake when it comes to putting an outfit together and I am a sucker for a nicely tailored pocketbook with a nice price tag to match. My go-to place when shopping for bags is Aldo.
Widely known for their shoes, Aldo is a great place to pick up a weekender or clutch for that last-minute trip. With a 50% off in-store and online sale, now is the time to get your money worth by adding to your cart and receiving your new handbag before the weekend comes back around.
Personally, I only shop Aldo’s sale section because I refuse to spend an arm and a leg on my addiction. I recently just purchased a Romeu handbag for $26 whereas it would have cost considerably more from another larger brand. Originally retailed for $55 Aldo the right accessories that will have you feeling yourself all summer’18.
I frequently forget to stock up on sunglasses and swimwear coverups once the nicer weather breaks through. If you haven’t started your shopping list just yet, then Fashonnova has you covered, literally. With discounted sales and free shipping on all U.S orders of $75, it is easy to get an entire outfit for $100 or less.
If Fashion Nova hasn’t won you over in the past, try Rose gal. With free shipping that does not have a starting minimum, you can shop through cover-ups, sunglasses and so much more for half the cost.
Shopping for yourself doesn’t have to be a hassle. With the right preparation, budget training, and a sense of style, you can be rocking the latest trends at a cost that will have you saving in luxury.
