When it comes to dressing for the holidays, I’ve definitely grown out of sparkly metallic fabrics that have little wearability once all the festivities are over. These days I’m drawn to unique shapes, quality materials and styles that can be worn again and again when special occasions come up. Here are a few picks that range from casual to fancy, all while keeping the pricetag under $100.

While I may speak for many people when I say I am over the ombré trend on hair, I do enjoy seeing it on clothing and accessories. It’s soothing to the eyes, maybe because it reminds me of the gradual fade of a sunset. Paired with neutrals, a touch of ombré can complete a great casual summer outfit.

Hi everyone, this was my first ever collage using Photoshop and I had a blast making it! Well, to be honest, there was a bit of swearing and frustration involved (learning curve!), but I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. Here are my top picks for the summer: a mix of cognac leathers, washed out cotton, some minimalist jewelry and a lacy feminine skirt that hits just below the knee.
1. Brixton Felt hat (also lovely and cheaper: here)
2. Free People Thunder Moon Tee
3. Chambray Shirt dress (similar here)
4. Maksym Geometric pendant
5. Dolce Vita Laynie Flats
6. X Bangle or cuff
7. Auxiliary Bega satchel bag
8. JOA scallop lace skirt
I tried to keep it minimal, but there are so many beautiful things I could add! Summer is such a fun season to shop for.
What is on your wish list?
