Greetings, friends! How are you this fine Thursday? As an aside, HOW did it get to be Thursday???

Seriously, as I wrote Thursday, I had to stop and think about it… it feels like Tuesday or maybe Wednesday to me, but certainly not Thursday!!! The only reason I was sure without checking my calendar is I remember sitting through my daughter’s piano lesson last night — and that is always on Wednesdays.

Does that ever happen to you? Life is moving so fast lately, I’m never quite sure what day it is.

So today I’ve rounded up some Fab Finds Under $50 for those who may be looking for some budget-friendly wardrobe updates this spring. Unfortunately a few of the items in the graphic have sold out or gone low inventory since it was created, so I added 5 more under $50 finds to the end of this post.

one // two // three // four // five // six // seven
eight // nine // ten // eleven


one // Unfortunately this is one of the pieces that are low inventory; sizes are limited, but it does come in 3 colors. I was drawn to the marsala, but the grey and white are nice too.

two // These stone ring drop earrings are fun for summer — the blue stones work well with any neutral plus yellows, reds, and pinks. I like how they’re delicate but large scale enough to be seen and make a subtle statement.

three // I wore this floral wrap top in Vero Beach and then again a few times since I’ve been home. The sleeves look long but they end up being more of a 3/4 length when you move around. It’s a nice one for women who like to cover their upper arms because it’s thin enough to wear in the summer as long as you’re not going to be outside in the heat for too long.

For some reason, the link isn’t working, but if you search “floral wrap top” on the Lucky Brand website, you will see it in the top row of results. it also comes in blue, and I have a size small, which is fine, but if in doubt, you may want to size up. I’d be curious to see how the medium fits — I have a feeling I’d like it. By the way, it’s marked down to $24 and it also comes in blue!

four // This baby doll top is really cute for women who are smaller on top. I personally can’t really wear this style, but I’m often drawn to them. It’s a level up from a basic tee and would be great with shorts, jeans, pants, or even a denim skirt (front tucked) this summer.

five // Sam Edelman shoes never disappoint; they’re a great marriage of style and quality at a moderate price point. This Gracie style retails for just under $50 and comes in a TON of colors. I know slides are trending, but I still prefer this thong style for slip-on sandals.

six // This bag sold out, and I’m so sad. It is actually the piece that inspired this post! I saw it and thought it was such a fabulous under-$50 find! It does come in a plain raffia version that is great if you need a neutral bag; it’s right in line with the straw bag trend that is so hot right now.

seven // This draped faux wrap top is a really nice piece to dress up or down. It would be great for work wear or church or anything for which you need something dressier than a t-shirt but still a top that’s easy to throw on with almost any jeans or pants. Because it’s fairly simple, it provides a nice canvas for fun jewelry. It comes in a ton of colors; I have it in black. It runs large, so size down; I have the small and I would love to have it taken in a bit at the waist.

eight // I love this top in the Green Lily color; it’s so fresh for spring and would pair beautifully with white shorts or cropped jeans. Bonus, it’s on sale for $13! The white is also $13. The grey and black are full price, but at $22, they’re still well under $50 and make great casual tops for layering or wearing alone.

nine // This delicate pendant by Kendra Scott is a nice everyday necklace, and it comes in silver, gold, and rose gold. It makes a great layering piece, or you can wear it alone for a simple accessory — perfect for dressing up shorts and a t-shirt or a casual dress this summer.

ten // Another pair of Sam Edelman sandals — I have these in black leather, and I love them. They typically run $84, but this Bistro Jabuck Nubuck color is a great neutral, and it’s marked down to $47. Some of the other colors are on sale too, but they vary — not all are under $50.

eleven // This cute, casual t-shirt dress comes down to $15 at checkout! It comes in a ton of colors; I ordered the black in a tall small, but it hasn’t come in yet. I usually wear regular sizes, but this one looks short, so I ordered the tall to see how that works for me. I’ll report back!

5 More Under $50 Finds

red chandelier earrings // I love these fringe earrings for popping a simple outfit. I tend to gravitate to hoops and studs, but I want to try wearing more statement earrings this summer.

beach bum sweatshirt // Isn’t this cute for chilly nights during the summertime? I think I need it for my beach trip in July to throw on with my denim shorts in the evenings. It has a magnetic snap closure as well as a zippered panel and wide patch compartment inside for your phone or wallet.

straw pom pom tassel tote // If you’re still looking for a summer pool and beach bag, this straw pom pom tassel tote is really cute, and the price is right! It comes down to $32 when you add it to your cart.

polarized aviator sunglasses // These aviators by Lily Pulitzer are super cute, and I can’t believe they’re under $50. They come in four fun summery shades, and they’re a great way to update your look without breaking the bank.

cotton slub maxi // Isn’t this dress the cutest??? Note the seaming details at the bottom of the skirt — so cute! I’m not sure I could pull this off because I generally need more structure, but I think it would be really great on the right person. I love how they paired it with gold thong sandals — I actually have those sandals. Maybe I should order the dress and see if I can wear it; it’s a great price.

Who else is noticing the beach theme in my last few picks? It was totally unintentional, but I’m clearly in vacation mode. Maybe it’s the impending Memorial Day weekend… the unofficial start of summer. Yippeee!!! Our beach trip is planned for the end of July, after we’ve moved into our new house. I have a feeling I’m going to be good and ready by then!
