Five Under $50

Obviously I spend a obscene fair amount of time online, so new finds are always catching my eye. Especially the great deals! Here are five darling pieces I’m loving, and all under $50!

five under $50

one // Cooler temperatures are just around the corner, which means I’ll be pulling out the cozy sweaters. This year I can’t seem to get enough of the slightly oversized pullover styles…so easy to throw on with jeans, and effortless cool. This one is particularly soft, and comes in some great Fall colors. 
two // Nothing says Fall like the perfect plaid scarf…and this one is the epitome of perfect plaid scarf. If you prefer a little less volume in your scarves, this one is a great choice. And it’s only $25, so it’s kind of a one-for-you, one-for-me deal!

three // Cognac is usually my go-to color for handbags this time of year, but I’m having a little love-affair with all things oxblood. Especially paired with pale pink! #swoon This mixed material cross body has a fun tassel, but it’s the rich color that will add so much to all your Fall outfits. #itstotallyneutral Find a similar one here and here.

four // Stripes + a Ruffle Hem…I can’t handle the cuteness! And it’s stupid cute with the plaid scarf and oxblood bag! (And top is currently 40% off!)

five // I finally invested in Hunter boots last year, and never looked back. They really are so well-made and comfortable (as far as rubber boots go). But one of my favorite Look-for-Lesses of all-time had us faking our way, by adding the Hunter fold-over socks to our no-brand boots. No one was the wiser!! #myonemomentofgenius

Speaking of scarves, this popular fringe infinity scarf is back, this time in 6 great colors and under $20! (See it in-person in my last Dressing Room Diaries.) And if you follow my Sugarplum Style series, then you know I live in the hoop earrings…so I’m kind of obsessed with these double hoops for only $15!

I wanted to add this v-neck pullover and long cardigan to the list, as well, but Eight Under $50 doesn’t have the same ring to it! What great deals have you found lately?

  1. A 20% chance of rain is enough for me to throw on my Hunter boots! I love them so!

    Sneaky cool hunter sock trick! And I think it's about darn time you re-named "five under 50" to "Finds under 50". Then you can add as many great finds as you (and we) want.

Five Under $50

Thanks so much for your sweet words on yesterday’s post! I know it was family overload, but I love having a scrapbook of our life on this blog, as well as home and style inspiration, so thank you for indulging me!

Obviously I spend a obscene fair amount of time online, so new finds are always catching my eye. Especially the great deals! Here are five darling pieces I’m loving, and all under $50!

five under $50

one //  Cooler temperatures are just around the corner, which means I’ll be pulling out the lighter cardigans & jackets. This three-quarter sleeve cardigan comes in 15 great colors, and is available in both regular and petite sizing. It’s insanely versatile and easily pairs with jeans, dresses, skirts & trousers!
two // This stylish tote is reversible, so it’s like two-in-one! It also comes with a coordinating wristlet, so it’s two-for-one! Hello, bang for your buck!! It’s big enough to stash all your stuff, including a laptop, so it’s as functional as it is stylish.
three // Our home decor is pretty consistent year-round, but when Fall comes, I do love to bring in cozy throws and pillows with lots of texture, like this gray lumbar kilm. This velvet ikat in deep jewel tones is gorgeous, too.
four // If I’m at home, I’m almost always in pajamas. Even if it’s just for a few hours between errands, I’ll change back into pajamas. It’s partially because I don’t like being in street clothes while laying around the house #freakalert, but mostly because I love getting comfy. So you’d think I’d have a whole collection of cute pajamas…after all, it’s what my family sees me in most of the time, right?! Um, no. Quite the opposite actually. I figure it’s time to change that..starting with this Sporty Spice set.
five //  Going along with that whole comfy theme, I spend a fair amount of time in leggings in the Fall and Winter. But finding tops to cover the lady bits, while not looking like a mumu isn’t easy. I think we may have a winner with this striped number…hopefully I’ll share it in the next Dressing Room Diaries.

Speaking of leggings, my all-time favorites are under $50, so I should have added them! I wanted to add this v-neck pullover and this twist-front shirt to the list, as well, but Eight Under $50 doesn’t have the same ring to it! What great deals have you found lately?

  2. Love the pillow and the pajamas! I just picked up a cute pair at Target last week- super soft and super cheap and I had them on at 6:30 on Friday night (because I'm such a party animal)- http://www.target.com/p/women-s-ribbed-pants-floral-print-xhilaration/-/A-51000487

  3. The pajamas are super cute! Thought I was the only one with the street clothes issue. As a teacher, I always change out of work clothes as soon as I get home and usually straight into pjs! Thanks for all of the great ideas for fall.

    Love everything! I want to curl up on the couch with those pjs and pillows! I just found a comfy tee shirt dress by Michelle Commune (think that is right) that feels like pjs and dresses up so cute! No pockets but it has stripes!

    I adore the idea of leggings, but have really shied away from them because my legs are heavier (a bit past "athletic" at the moment). Any suggestions for someone who wants to be comfortable but not look like a slob?? I blog from home but work with wine (doing tastings in stores) for my PT gig…. Not lots of need for dressing up too much. Help? Thoughts?

    Posted 9.7.16 Reply
    • Hi Alison! That's what I love so much about the blackout leggings…they are thick and really hold things in place, so you don't see the usual lumps and bumps from regular leggings. I'd wear those with a tunic blouse and booties or knee-high boots for a casual, but pulled-together look! xo

    For those of you who love leggings and struggle to find cute tops to wear with them, check out LuLaRoe clothes! It's a direct sales company so you have to find a consultant, but their clothes are amazing. Super soft and flattering. I've never been into clothes or fashion until I discovered that brand!

Five Under $50

Obviously I spend a obscene fair amount of time online, so new finds are always catching my eye. Especially the great deals! Here are five darling pieces I’m loving, and all under $50!

five under $50
one // The only thing that makes the end of Summer more bearable, is the fact that boots & sweaters are around the corner. I love a big, slouchy cardigan, and this one takes it one step further by adding deep pockets. It comes in four great neutral colors, and would be cute layered over a plaid shirt or basic tee. This similar one looks super cozy, too.
two // I fell hard for some fringe booties last year, but didn’t want to make the investment because I wasn’t sure how long the trend would last. Well, it looks like it’s here to stay, but regardless, this affordable pair won’t break your budget.
three // I grabbed this bag several years ago, but it sold out almost immediately after. I’m thrilled it’s finally back-in-stock, because I get tons of questions every time I carry it! Expect to see it in heavy-rotation, as it’s a great size for my laptop & everyday essentials. (I also have this cognac tote, that’s currently 40% off!)
four // We don’t change up our decor too much for each season, but I do love to swap out pillows & throws. I love these rich, jewel tones, and the velvet is so soft for lounging.
five // I’m a sucker for plaids…but especially those in feminine colors & patterns. I ordered this one, and am hoping it’s as cozy as it is cute!

I wanted to add this striped tank dress and this striped pullover to the list, but Seven Under $50 doesn’t have the same ring to it! And with the sale price, you could get all three colors of this top for less than $50! What great deals have you found lately?

  1. Cassie,
    I love summer, but this year it has been so hot I would say I'm not too sad to see fall arrive. I'm a person that carries a cardigan around all year to restaurants and airports anyway so I love when I see them for a good price.

    Did you try on the Target booties? Sometimes their shoes can be a bit stiff #andnotinagoodway

    • I haven't seen them in person yet, but so far I like the looks of them! Definitely not long-term shoes, but cute for a trend! I'll check them out next time I'm at Target!

Obviously I spend a obscene fair amount of time online, so new finds are always catching my eye. Especially the great deals! Here are five darling pieces I’m loving lately, and all under $50!

five under $50

one //   This little embroidered number is already on the way to me, and I’ve got my fingers crossed it’s as cute in person as it appears to be online! With all that embroidery, you’d never guess it’s under $50, right!? I’m a sucker for this style of dress, especially on hot Summer days.
Update: Dang, that sold out fast! But look at the back of this darling option!
two //  These sneakers aren’t new to me, as I’ve barely taken them off since buying last month. You saw me traipsing all over Provence in them, and in half my recent Sugarplum Style posts. I wear them comfortably with no socks, but do recommend sizing down one-half size. Even my mom wears them in red! I love the slip-on style, and cute no-tie laces.
three //  This was my favorite cross body bag all Fall and Winter (see it here), but it sold out in a heartbeat. I was pretty excited to share it’s finally restocked, in both the cognac and black!
four //  Do you stock up on good tanks and tees? I tend to find a style I like, and buy it up in all the colors. This loose tank looks like a good ‘un…and with this sale price, it’s actually 2 for $50!
five //  Black and white stripes on a pillow…need I say more?!

I wanted to add these linen shorts to the list, but Six Under $50 doesn’t have the same ring to it! What great deals have you found lately? For more posts like these, check out my Look for Less and I Spy series, as well as more Five Under $50.

    Cassie..I must say I adore your style! I don't think there is one item that you share that I don't like! I just now had a chuckle about your comment about when you find an item you like, that you will buy up several in different colours. My daughter gets so mad at me because I always do that as well. Usually they are timeless pieces that never go out of style. I know I will get my wear out of them and it's better to be safe than sorry, because next year, the store may stop carrying them. Right?

  2. Would you show/teach us how you tie a knot in your shirts without stretching them out?

    Posted 6.14.16 Reply
    • Hi Whitney! I grab just the extra fabric, and tie a small knot, using only the loose fabric…not pulling more in to create a bigger knot. Sometimes the knot is literally only the size of a golf ball. Once it's washed, the shirt goes back to normal! xo

Five Under $50

Obviously I spend a obscene fair amount of time online, so new finds are always catching my eye. Especially the great deals! Here are five darling pieces I’m loving lately, and all under $50!

five under $50

one // Racerback style & bright florals are giving me all the heart-eyes! I’ve had
really good luck with this brand in the past (the white dress in this post is the same brand), 
and the length is usually perfect for us non-21-year-olds. #knowwhatImsayin I’ve got it on order,
so look for it to pop up in a Dressing Room Diaries soon.
two // Cognac sandals are my go-to because they are so versatile & flattering. I don’t
think I even own black sandals, since my tan ones go with literally everything!
These classic slides look way more expensive than $50, right?!
three // I’ve been using this Detox Mask for over a month, and it’s safe to say
I’m obsessed! In fact, even Mr. SP started a weekly mask!! I don’t know all the fancy-talk
behind it, but basically it draws out impurities & cleans-up pores. Literally after one use!
My son uses it as a spot-treatment on his teenager-skin, and has seen a big improvement, too.
four // I’ve never met an Otomi print I didn’t love, but most of them are so pricey! That’s why I
DIY’d my own Otomi Table a few years ago! I can’t believe these indoor/outdoor embroidered
pillows are so affordable , and I’m having a hard time not scooping
up the entire Otomi collection! It just adds so much fun & personality to a space.
five // No question I have a weakness for (affordable) handbags, with clutches being my main addiction. They just have a way of transforming an outfit, plus, pack away so easily. I recently added this one to my collection (more colors available here), and I can’t believe how much it holds! Not to mention, you’d never guess it’s not real leather!

I wanted to add this perfect tee (which is actually 2 for $50) to the list, but Six Under $50 doesn’t have the same ring to it! What great deals have you found lately? For more posts like these, check out my Look for Less and I Spy series, as well as more Five Under $50.

P.S. Happy birthday to my darling sister, the prettiest bride I’ve ever seen!

Obviously I spend a obscene fair amount of time online, so new finds are always catching my eye. Especially the great deals! Here are five darling pieces I’m loving lately, and all under $50!

five under $50
one  //  I love the graphic brushstroke of this mock-neck top, and the 
countless ways to wear it…alone or under a jacket, untucked with jeans or tucked
in a skirt or slacks. And the pattern pairs so well with solids or floral. I already have the
polka dot print, and my mom has the floral and the pink! #itsagoodone
two  //  If you follow my #SugarplumStyle on Instagram, then you already recognize this necklace…it’s been on regular repeats. It jazzes up just about any outfit, and the colors 
add so much punch! See for yourself in my One Jacket | Three Ways post.
three  //  It’s officially outdoor patio season, in fact, our kids even got in the pool this
past weekend!! I watched from the porch. #brrr Which also reminded me
it’s time to start sprucing it up. I started by ordering
two of these darling pink flamingo outdoor pillows.
four  //  This darling little tshirt dress is perfect with sandals and a jean jacket, or
even thrown over your swimsuit this Summer. And it comes in 8 great colors, plus a stripe.
Fit Tip: I’d size up one for a little extra length.
five  //  I never met a stripe I didn’t love…and this tote works great for everyday, travel
and even a pool/beach bag. (This red and navy option is too cute for words, too!) 
I can’t help but notice how cute the pink dress, tassel necklace, and striped bag look together! #outfitdone

I wanted to add this split-back blouse, but Six Under $50 doesn’t have the same ring to it! What great deals have you found lately? For more posts like these, check out my Look for Less and I Spy series, as well as more Five Under $50.

    Great finds. I just returned the bobeau mock neck top because when turned down the points on the back of the mock neck stuck out… Does yours do that or did I get a dud? I've considered reordering. The fabric and fit was perfect!

    • Hmmmm, I didn't notice anything like that? My mom literally has all three colors, and said she didn't notice either. Maybe you got a dud, or it just needed laundering.

  5. Yeah, that tassel necklace is soooooooooooo good. Love all the picks!

  6. Love that striped bag! Also, I'm curious about what you would consider acceptable pool weather. I just googled the weather forecast for Dallas #isthatweird and today is supposed to be 29C, which I believe is about 85F. Do you consider this to be cold? I can't imagine having to function somewhere with those sorts of daily temps. I would never get anything done. Every day would be pool day for me in Dallas. And I think I'd be totally fine with that!!

    Posted 4.27.16 Reply
    • LOL, 85 is def warm enough to swim, but the pool water hasn't warmed up enough for me yet! It takes several weeks of 80+ temps in order for me to get in. 😉 xo

Obviously I spend a obscene fair amount of time online, so new finds are always catching my eye. Especially the great deals! Here are five darling pieces I’m loving lately, and all under $50!

Hi Sugarplum | 5 Under $50

one // I’m a racerback dress junkie…in fact, I have this one in three colors!
I may need to add this updated version to my collection, I love the longer length,
and high-low hem.
two // I’ve never met a stripe I didn’t love, and this fun clutch would pair perfectly with virtually every Spring and Summer outfit. It’s also big enough to carry all your daily essentials.
three // Lace-up sandals are everywhere this year…
I recently picked up this pair & can’t believe how much I love them. 
four // Oversized straw tote, plus a colorful tassel!?!? #cometomama
five //  I live in basic tees & tanks during warmer months, and the scalloped hem of this one steps it up a notch. So cute paired with shorts or jeans…and those lace-up sandals!

I also love that all five of these pieces are timeless classics, not throw-away trends…and actually make a pretty darling outfit when paired together! What great deals have you found lately?
