Faves Under $50

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend! We arrived home last night, and jumped right in to the kid’s Summer break this morning, with art camp for one, and volunteering at VBS for the other. I know it will take a little time to find our new rhythm, but I’m so excited for the relaxed schedule and to have the kids around more!

Today is another round of Faves Under $50, featuring some really cute new finds. Obviously I spend an obscene amount of time online, and cute things are always catching my eye…especially the great deals. Here are a few I’m crushing on recently, and all under $50! Plus a few things for the dear Dads in our lives!

faves under $50, dads day gifts

one //  I’ve had this camisole tank for years, and in several colors (see it styled with jeans here and capris here), and now they’ve released it with an updated shape and fun new colors. It’s such a versatile piece and looks amazing worn alone, or layered under jackets. (I wear it with this bra.)

two // This kimono-style cover-up is a chic new option for throwing on over your swimsuit. I love the knee-length for more coverage in the back, too.

three // When your favorite undies come out with a thong-style just in time for Summer outfits, you have to grab a set! Because let’s face it, sometimes outfits just demand a fully-seamless undergarment.

four // A t-shirt dress in the softest cotton with a cute cutout on the back…perfect for throwing on with sneakers or sandals, or even over your swimsuit. See more pics in this Dressing Room Diaries post.

five // Nothing dresses up the most casual of outfits like a fun, statement earring. I wear these with everything from dresses to jean shorts…and they always fetch the compliments!

six // I’m having a love-affair with straw bags this Summer, and I’m crazy for the rounded handle of this one. And do I even have to say it?! Pom Poms!!

seven // I stocked up on these oversized Turkish towel/blankets several years ago, and they’re perfect for the pool. I love the soft cotton and fun print, but even better, they dry so quickly in the sun!

eight // Hydration is key, especially in the hot Texas sun! This darling bottle easily tucks in my purse or pool bag, and water stays cold all day. Plus, the cap keeps it from spilling!

nine // These pull-on shorts have both an elastic waist and drawstring, so you can get just the right fit. The lightweight linen material gives them just the right amount of laid-back casual…not to mention, the reviews are practically perfect.

ten // I shared my love of SuperGoop with you in my Summer Essentials post last week, and this little set stays packed in our pool bag all season. It’s got all my favorites, and great for travel.

eleven // These caps are family favorites around here…I wear them as often as my son! The shape is great, and just the right touch of preppy goodness.

twelve // Mr. SP almost always goes for a t-shirt this time of year, but if he needs a collar, these shirts are his favorites. They’re soft and stretchy, come in all the great colors, and launder really well.

thirteen // I love this distressed leather phone case, and what Dad doesn’t love a techy-gift?

fourteen // You can’t go wrong with this travel-ready starter kit of fan-favorite skin care for men…it’s a great deal for under $50, too!


Speaking of Dad’s Gifts, it’s not quite under $50, but this FitBit is on rare sale and would be a great treat! And if you really want to impress him, splurge for this wireless bluetooth speaker…the sound is amazing, and he’ll love being able to take it anywhere without having to plug-in!

Oh, and Nordstrom just unveiled a ton of new in-season sale items, so there’s a whole slew of goodies on under $50! What great deals have you spotted lately?

    I love your style posts, but it does bum me out that you often describe items as cotton but then they turn out to actually be rayon (i.e. #4). I’m always on the hunt for chic cotton clothes.

      Thanks Stephanie! I remembered that dress being cottony-soft when trying it on, but I’ll try to pay closer attention to the full makeup in the future!! xoxo
