Faves Under $50

Happy Monday from the Pacific Ocean! After a quick overnight in Seattle, we embarked on the Emerald Princess yesterday, and are now en route to Alaska! We’re spending the day at sea, so I have a date with my balcony and this book. Have you read it or seen the movie?

Today I’m sharing a new Faves Under $50, and there are some great new finds for Fall, along with some go-to favorites already.

faves under $50

one  //  Cozy Embroidered Pullover  Could this be any cuter or cozier?! I wish I’d found it before leaving on this trip, because it would be perfect for the Alaska chill! It comes in several colors, and all have the darling little embroidered heart detail.

two  //  Crossbody  I thought for sure my eyes were playing tricks on me when I spotted this crossbody for under $50. It’s so insanely chic, it could easily pass for three times the price!

three  //  Puffer Vest  Quilted puffers have been one of my fall staples for years, and I’m close to having most every color. And now gingham. I mean, hello cute!

four  //  Plaid Scarf  I love plaid scarves in fall, but don’t love overly warm or bulky ones. This plaid fits the bill just fine! So cute with a striped tee, too!

five  //  Tortoise Handle Bag  A sturdy tote for everyday, but with a chic tortoise handle and even a removable crossbody strap?! Count me in! Comes in black, too.

six  //  Perfect Fall Nail Lacquer  I discovered Kendra’s line of nail polish earlier this year, and literally wore ‘Pink Agate‘ every single day through the spring and summer. I finally made the swap to fall, and ‘Pink Rhodonite’ is going to be my go-to all season.

seven  //  Bootie  I wore these ankle booties in last week’s Fall Transition post, and couldn’t believe how comfy they are, especially for the price! If you’re looking for an affordable option this Fall, it’s hard to beat these. But size down half.

eight  //  Soft Scoopneck Top  I adore all things Lou & Gray…they just know how to do soft and comfy! And this scoop neck top is no different…styled with sneakers or booties, it’s the perfect base for jackets and scarves. Or just worn alone!

nine  //  Favorite Undies  I’ve shared these undies before, but they’re worth repeating! I have now officially transitioned my entire ‘undie wardrobe’ over to these…and even stocked up to get me through an entire trip without having to do laundry. I’ve yet to find another pair this comfy that doesn’t creep up or show a line!

ten  //  No-Show Socks  One of the most popular questions during my travels has been about my socks…what do I wear with booties and slip-on sneaks? I have a few I like depending on the weather, but these are my go-tos. They’re thin and stay dry, and more importantly, they stay put without slipping under your heel.


What’s your favorite from this round of Faves Under $50? Have you spotted any great deals lately? Tomorrow we dock in Ketchikan, and then it’s on to Juneau! Have you been to Alaska?

    We loved Ketchikan when we did our Alaska Cruise last summer. In fact it was our favorite port city. If you have time try Annabelle’s Keg and Chowder House. They are famous for their clam chowder. It is right around the downtown shopping area. It was recommended to us by a local shop owner that has a art gallery and gift shop in the downtown area. It as intimate and inviting after a sea plane ride for our excursion in Ketchikan. Enjoy the day and hope you love it as much as we did

    I took the Alaskan Cruise about eight years ago. We had so much fun! I think a lot of that is who you travel with and we were very easy going, funny friends. I found Ketchikan to be too touristy in the downtown area. It was full of tourists off other cruise lines. Take some of the tours if you can and see the real town. My favourite place was Skagway, we had the best tour guide dressed in period costume with a great sense of humour. It felt more Real. My second favourite was Sitka. It’s a smaller town but fun to explore. There was a pub down by the water with a patio. Can’t remember the name but a local will surely send you to it. It’s frequented by locals. They had a band and good seafood. Fun!
    Enjoy your balcony tine as you travel through beautiful BC today. Welcome!

      Thanks for the great tips, Joanna!! Isn’t Sitka where they based ‘The Proposal’? We don’t actually stop there, but sounds fun!

    We cruised with Norwegian through Alaska in July 2017 and loved it! I’m sure you will have a great time. 🙂 I really liked the Crazy Rich Asians book, as well as the 2nd and 3rd book by Kevin Kwan. The movie was really great too!

    Our first trip to Alaska was this past July and it was truly life changing! We did the “Ultimate Alaska Adventure” journey thru a company called Alaska Wildland Adventures . We toured the Kenai area for 8 days and 7 nights. We flew into Anchorage and were picked up by our guide. There were 8 of us in the group including our guide who was with us the entire time. We stayed in 3 different lodges they own, staying at each at least 2 nights. Each lodge was located in a different part of the area; Kenai River, Skilak Lake, and Gulf of Alaska. We hiked to the tundra, went horseback riding, took a helicopter to the Punch Bowl Glacier, went mush dog sledding in the punch bowl, fished the Kenai River, hiked the Russian River to see the salmon run, kayaked in the Gulf of Alaska, private boat tour to Holgate Glacier, saw wildlife up close and personal ;-), and so much more. It was truly an amazing trip and we are already planning our next trip to Denali. We couldn’t believe how beautiful everything is there. We highly recommend the company we toured with.
