I scoured the internet to find you 10 items under $100. August is a great time to pick up Christmas gifts, a gift for yourself, or replace a worn out basic. All these items above can be styled together for a travel capsule wardrobe. For example, wear this LBD with these strappy sandals for a date night out. Tip: roll your items in your suitcase, don’t fold, for creaseless traveling.

Hope you find something you love. I’m off to go workout and run a bunch of non-glamorous errands like a trip to the post office.

Happy August!

Here I just paired a cropped sweater over a body-con dress I got off of poshmark. I recently got this dress (I sized up, so look for that coming soon to the blog!)

Leopard is crazy on trend right now and what better time to stock up on your size than now. I love styling it with pops of red or yellow. Here are some under $100 favorites. Yes that’s not a typo.

The below selections are more than $100, but well worth the “Cost Per Wear.” I’m used my Clare Vivier clutch like crazy since I bought it 2 years ago.

1. By posting this dress I’m cheating by $4. Trust me its worth it

2. This Necklacon repeat!

3. Jeans only $76! These are fully stocked and have great rips and a crop. I also love these!
4. Cargo jacket – this one caught my eye since the collar is so good, along with the $30 price tag. Green cargo jackets are a season-less and classic wardrobe staple
5. Sunglasses that won’t break the bank
6. Polka Dot Dress Love! Can be worn with sneakers or sandals 😉

7.  Behold the vegan leather carryall for $64 (shown in color BROWN)

8. These slides are perfect for back to school drop off and coffee runs
9. A neutral sneaker is a closet staple!
10. Black boots perf for fall!

A big shout out to the Bella Band for allowing me to wear non maternity jeans for almost 9 months, YAHOOO

How was your Christmas? Reid and I enjoyed our slowest and sweetest Christmas yet. We were surrounded by my lovely in-laws and lots of LEGO’s. I would be lying if I said I haven’t stepped on them. But speaking of stepping, these boots are my fave and one of my wardrobe staples, and this dress is quickly a favorite for its flattering fit, tulip hem and under $60 price!

I’ve also included some of my favorites from around the web below:






5 Jeans under $100

I get a ton of questions about my jeans so I thought I’d round up some of my favorite jeans under $100! If you’re like me and finding yourself spending more of your wardrobe budget on puffer jackets, coats, silk pillowcases, chunky knit throws and cashmere scarves, not to mention holiday gifts, this post should be of use.

These are skinnies for long tunics and layering, this one is awesome for chunky knit sweaters (size down), and I’ve had these jeans for ages and they’re still flattering. And these are not under $100 but an overall great jean!

5 Jeans Under $100:


Don’t size up. Seriously. Err on the side of too small because cotton and stretch will stretch with time.

Don’t worry about length. If you’re petite and worried about the jeans hanging on the floor, you can always get them hemmed (Nordstrom card holders get this perk for free) or just cut them off, like I do.

When in doubt, order a couple sizes and ship one back. Like most retailers, Shopbop and Nordstrom have free returns.

To prevent fading, wash inside out and add 1/2 cup of distilled vinegar to the final rinse cycle, or hand wash with Woolite. I really rarely wash my jeans. I just spilled coffee on mine the other day while out and just used Dawn soap from the kitchen and scrubbed it out.

Don’t forget that cropped jeans that hit at the smallest part of your ankle look AWESOME with fun shoes like these:

I’d love to know, or if you have any tips, add them to the comments!


We have a busy season coming up with summer ending and school right around the corning.  So this is the time to put on our favorite OOTD and hit the Art’s District for a leisurely walk around one of the most inspiring areas of Los Angeles.  The area is thriving with old warehouses, murals and creative/fashionable people everywhere.  I can’t help but leave with fresh new ideas I can’t wait to explore in my own closet.  Fully inspired, I headed to Nordstrom looking for that pre labor day dress that was cute, but edgy.  Polka dots are unapologetically bold and cute any season.  The dress I’m wearing can be dressed up with heels for a meeting DTLA or dressed down with sneakers for an ice cream date in Pasadena. I also found this polka dot skirt (under $100!).

As for Nordstrom, well, who doesn’t love Nordstrom? Their customer service is five-star, and I seriously think that (along with their amazing merchandise selection) is what sets them apart from most retailers. I often go to Nordstrom with kids and a tight schedule and I’m always given the best service and the most options while my kids love getting balloons in the shoe department every. single. time. Whether I make it to the store or shop online, Nordstrom is my go-to for daily fashion and really should be for any busy mom on the go. I mean, I prefer dot com just to avoid the dressing room tantrums and constant “can we go” requests, but curb side service also works. All in all, Nordstrom makes it easy to get what you want, when you want it. So go find you some polka dots!

Thank you Nordstrom for partnering on this post!

If you are in search of a dress for Friday’s date night and your friend’s wedding, this dress fits the bill. I’m loving that this dress is not only under $60, but looks great with a headscarf and lace-up sandals. Its been so hot here full of that dry dessert heat that I admittedly love, but also love to hate. Nothing better than a light ruffle dress for day dates and nights out to keep cool. Just don’t forget the sunblock. Also this dress comes in 5 colors, which is your fave? See also here for a dress for every occasion.

Easter dress under $100 :: suede trench similar :: blush heels :: necklace :: lips :: sunnies :: foundation ::

Easter is Sunday, and you don’t have a lot of time to prepare, but you want something less than $100? Problem solved. Here, I wore a satin dress, suede trench and blush heels. I kept similar tones together and added a chic trench to add an overall polish. I like the idea of a dress I don’t spend a mini fortune on so I have more of a budget for shoes, a designer bag and not a mini heart attack over a coffee spill. Yes, I’m speaking from experience. I also put this outfit on my shop page, and down below. I mean, how cute is this gingham cold shoulder dress with a belt?

You probably already know, I collect denim. I’m pretty picky about the wash and fit, but I found a couple faves, some of which are under $100! Don’t forget to size up since they arrive pretty stiff. I’m definitely bringing a couple pairs to Mexico with Reid and I, as I love how they look with ruffles and going out tops. A good pair of jeans is like a good friend, bring them everywhere, and treat them well. See more denim faves I update daily on my shop page.

A get the most questions about my jeans, so I’m sharing some top jeans I love and under $100! Yes – don’t delay. Sizes are limited. Generally, I like to have a good pair of black, denim, and colored jeans on hand to tackle any outfit. I’m really loving jeans with feminine tops and cardigans for when the weather transitions. What are your favorites?
