Good morning! I got back from Nashville after dark last night, and I’m feeling a bit sluggish this morning, but it’s good to be home.
The kids and I watched the pre-show to the Oscars and about the first half hour of the awards before I turned in for the night. I haven’t seen any movies up for nomination (except for Zootopia, lol) so the show really didn’t hold much interest to me apart from the fashion. I always love seeing what the actresses are wearing. Who was your fave?
I absolutely loved Emma Stone’s dress, her hair, makeup, everything. She was the epitome of old Hollywood glamour. Should I see La La Land? I’ve heard mixed reactions.
My other favorite was Nicole Kidman. She always rocks it on the red carpet, and last night was no exception. I also thought Laura Dern looked amazing. I love her dress.
So today I’m kind of scrambling for a post. I’m trying to save the outfits I’ve photographed for my spring series that starts on Wednesday, so I thought I’d put together a 5 Under $50 post today.
5 Under $50
These are all products I’ve ordered recently that I love and recommend, and each is less than $50 including shipping. They’ve all been personally vetted, and I think you’ll like them too!
#1. Twist Front Cozy Fleece Pullover $44 // This is a great little number for these early spring days when you want to ditch the heavy sweaters but it’s too cold for short sleeves and sandals. It comes in three colors — the blue I’m showing here, as well as grey and lavender. It’s fleecy and cozy, but the 3/4 sleeves keep it from being too wintry, and the little twist detail in the front adds interest and so it’s not a basic sweatshirt. I recommend wearing a casual, longer pendant with this top to elongate the upper body and break up the plain front. This top runs true to size.
#3. Pink Lipstick // In the spring and summer, I like to go with a more pink lipstick shade, so I just ordered this one in Pink Nouveau at the recommendation of another blogger. I’m a huge fan of MAC lipsticks, so I know I’ll love how it goes on and feels on my lips. I’ll let you know how this color works out. I realize not everyone can wear pink lipstick, so bear that in mind, but for me and my coloring, I feel like going with a pink lipstick this time of year looks fresh and youthful.
#4. Flat Cross Body Handbag $29 // I ordered this from Target because some of you have asked for more affordable handbag options, and I’m really impressed. It almost feels and looks like leather, and it’s a nice size for everyday. The style is on trend, and it comes in a lovely cognac (the one pictured above) as well as black, mustard, and grey. I’ll be styling it with an outfit soon!
#5. Ruffle Sleeve Tee $35 // I ordered this last week, and then when I was shopping with Cyndi over the weekend, I saw it in the store and tried it on. It is super cute and on trend. I LOVE those sleeves. For size reference, I have the medium. According to the size chart, a M=4-6 in this brand. It will be so cute front-tucked with a pair of jeans and ballet flats (like the pewter ones here!) or Converse for a more casual look.
And that’s a wrap! I’m off to unpack and get myself organized for a new week.
I hope you have a happy and productive Monday!
