Low Tide: Budget Buys.

Yesterday was all about dreamy splurges; today is all about attainable budget buys.  Below, 10 items under $100 that I’m obsessing over:

+PICK NO. 1: Um, this $55 tie-front dress is too good to be true.  The length!  The bow front!  The prints!

+PICK NO. 2: Ruffled poplin button-downs have been a major fashion mainstay for the chic set this summer, and this gingham style ($51) is no exception.

+PICK NO. 3: This pleated midi skirt ($69) is SO GUCCI I CAN’T GET OVER IT.  Also, nails the midi length AND the botanical/bird-print craze I’ve been dying over.  In a similar vein: these $59 parrot-print pants.  Bold and so, so good.

+PICK NO. 4: This $59 blouse reminds me of this Ulla Johnson top ($357) I’ve been yearning for.

+PICK NO. 5: In the spirit of the Self-Portrait dress every blogger has been seen in, but this one is $95.

+PICK NO. 6: This cherry-print pareo has the look of a Louis Vuitton scarf, but is on sale for under $100.

+PICK NO. 7: I’ve mentioned these before, but these pom-accented slides ($69) are a good sub for the Hermes Oran.  Sleek, simple, chic.

+PICK NO. 8: Because I’m very angry at myself for missing out on this $35 top from H+M, worn with great style by Caitlin of Daily Cup of Couture above, I instantly snagged this $88 variation from J. Crew, but in the lavender color.  May also need it in the white.

+PICK NO. 9: A stark white bodysuit ($26) to wear with anything/everything.

+PICK NO. 10: The CUTEST clutch ($75).


  1. Ooo I love that J Crew top! It is true to size, or J Crew vanity sized? I hate having to order multiple sizes from them nowadays- nothing is consistently sized!

    That H&M skirt is fantastic. It’s a little much to wear to work, but I think I may need it for weekends…

    1. Hi Kate! The shirt has not yet arrived, but I will keep you posted. I always order a size down at J. Crew, though!! The skirt is MAJ.
