Hello, friends! Happy Monday! It’s been a wild few weeks for me, and I’m so glad to finally be at home for a while.
I wasn’t able to get a Coffee Talk post up yesterday because the Wifi on the plane was kind of spotty, but suffice it to say, I had a great weekend. It was overwhelming at times, and sometimes I was wondering what on earth I’m doing with that crowd, but I found my tribe, so to speak. I was able to spend a lot of time with Cyndi, and I also got to know Caryl and Lindsey a lot better, which was awesome. (Also, if you’re wondering more about what the conference was about and what goes on there, Caryl has a very comprehensive post on her blog today explaining it all.)
It’s funny, when I go to this event (I went last year as well), it feels almost like I’m starting over. I’ve been blogging for 11 years, which makes me sort of a dinosaur in this space. In the mom blogging community, I feel like I know everyone, and they know me. But in the fashion blogging community, I only know a handful of people, and no one knows who I am. It’s daunting at times, but I know from experience that every time you show up, you meet more people, and over time, it gets easier and more fun.
It was also nice to connect with some of the sponsoring brands as well as the rewardStyle team. I’m glad I went, but I definitely need some time to decompress and process it all.
So moving on . . .
5 Under $50
Today I’ve got a 5 under $50 post because I know y’all like these, and they’re easy for me to put together. I need easy today!
Cold Shoulder Tee $39 // This top came in my last Trunk Club. At first glance, it looks like a basic cold shoulder tee, but it’s actually made of a modal material so it looks a little dressier than your typical t-shirt. It’s one of those tops you can dress up or down, and for $39, you might as well get two! It fits nicely, but it’s a little long so I front-tuck it. It currently comes in four color options. For size reference, I have the medium.
Good Vibes Clutch $36 // I brought this with me to the rewardStyle conference, and I got so many compliments on it. It’s a fun, whimsical addition to so many casual outfits.
Lace-Up Sandals $49 // These caught my eye because they remind me of my Lucky Brand Tafia Heels, which are considerably more expensive (although on sale at Zappo’s, I just discovered!) The comfort and quality of the Lucky Brand heels are worthy of the price, but if you don’t think you’ll get a lot of wear out of them and you want a less expensive option, the BP. Decker Lace-Up Sandals are a nice faux leather option for $49.
Skimmer Jeans $34 // I wore these with a navy linen tee and a denim jacket and ballet flats to a college visit with my 17-year-old a few weeks ago. They have the look of khaki pants with the fit of skinny jeans. Even my husband noticed them and told me he liked them. (He rarely remarks on my clothing unless he thinks it looks weird, lol.) They were originally $89, and they’re marked down to $34.99. Sizes are selling out, but they’re a nice deal if you can snag a pair in your size. I have the 6, for reference. They also have them in army green, but not on sale.
Druzy Layer Necklace $49 // You’ll be seeing this in an upcoming post with Lucky Brand, but I thought it would be a good piece to include in this 5 Under $50 roundup. It’s such a pretty piece that will go with so many things.
I hope y’all have a great Monday!
