Initially, I planned on sharing an under $100 style edit for today’s blog post, but I ended up finding so many cute pieces under $50 that I decided they deserved a dedicated post!

I tend to shop from a mix of high and low retailers. I’ll be the first to say that I love many of my Target dresses equally as much as the ones I’ve bought from Shopbop or Tuckernuck. There are so many unique styles and affordable options these days that you don’t ever feel like you’re missing out.

As much as I hate to admit it, I’ve started thinking about fall just a little recently, ha! This week’s weather has been on the cloudier side, and it got me thinking that this fleece pullover would be great as we head into late summer for cooler evenings in the backyard. The navy stripes and button collar have a slightly nautical feel that I absolutely love.

In all honesty, I don’t think I’ve worn much else apart from dresses and activewear this summer. So it’s safe to say they’ve been my unspoken uniform lately. Although I’m trying to hold off on shopping at the moment for practical reasons, I’m tempted to order one of these dresses! The navy v-neck tiered knit midi dress and green smocked dress can easily transition into fall with a denim jacket, and I also love this striped summer dress with pockets.

For those of you who aren’t solely living in dresses this summer, there are lots of smocked tops to get excited about! Any navy top styled with white jeans and pearl earrings is a classic combination. Lastly, I couldn’t resist sneaking in at least one piece that included a bow detail. This white linen blend top checks all of the boxes! It’s smocked, has a scalloped hem, and tie shoulder straps– what more could you ask for?
