Under $100: Black top, $88 | White pants | Black blazer | YSL bag | Sandals | $49.50 Bracelet

Favorites under $100 that look and feel expensive!⭐️

Over the years, my wardrobe has evolved into a mix of cool designer pieces, stylish essentials, and a handful of lower-priced items. I don’t usually seek out specific things, but we all love a deal. So, when I find a great $49 bracelet and a $88 top (like the ones I’m wearing above), I get pretty excited! And I know I’m not the only one — even my friends and clients with larger clothing budgets love finding good pieces at reasonable prices. That’s why I’m going to share my favorite finds under $100. Rest assured, I’ve tested them all — or almost all 😉

My “authenticity promise” to you all

I’ve been asked this question a few times lately, so I thought I’d address it here: do you plan on sharing more reasonably priced items? Here’s the thing … being authentic is my number one promise to all of you. Truth is, there’s barely enough time in the day to explore everything I love. So, while I don’t try on every single thing I write about, I am very very careful about what I cover on the blog. I either own it, have tried it or helped someone else with it, or have read about it and want to try it. I’m always on the look out for reasonably priced items to mix in with higher end pieces — it’s what makes a wardrobe more interesting. And, I need to really love it in order to share it with all of you!

Do I always get it right?

I humbly admit … I don’t always get it right. For example, awhile back, I wrote about a trench, and even featured it several times. And when it arrived, it was terrible — so I quickly apologized on my IG stories! Keep reading to see everything I found for you, I hope you find something you love!

J.Crew orange dress – Orange is everywhere this season, and I spotted this linen dress at a great price. Perfect for sunny days.

Accessories – Love a good baseball hat, and this Paris one is so cute! So is this orange and straw tote, you’ll be surprised how much it you’ll wear it.

T-shirts – Graphic tees and stripes are a fun way to add a little interest to solid outfits. Of course, LOVE this Anine Bing brand new tee, and you always need a striped tank!

1822 jeans – The fit and styling are spot on when it comes to 1822 jeans, and they’re a top seller. This pair is well-priced and you’ll wear them all the time

J.Crew bracelets – I can’t say enough good things about J.Crew jewelry. It’s perfect for mixing in with some of your more expensive pieces, and J.Crew is always on-trend! I purchased this crystal tennis bracelet, this silver cuff and this pearl bracelet. They look amazing all together, but I’ve also been wearing the cuff on its own.


Active favorites: $88 hoodie | $75 striped tee


Left: Vuori hoodie and skirt | Sneakers | Naghedi orange tote | Right: $75 striped top | Lululemon skirt | Sneakers | Chloe tote

Vuori Halo everything – The Halo hoodie and skirt I’m wearing above are SO soft, and they’re both under $100. Perfect for errands, vacation and of course, tennis or pickleball!

Vuori jogger – The jogger has its own category, because it’s THAT good! The color options are really pretty, and if you’re tall, I they’re now offering a longer length. If by some crazy chance you don’t own these, RUN and buy some. They’ll become your new favorites!

Lululemon – For a great basic tennis skirt (that you can wear everywhere thanks to the current tennis trend), this one is a favorite. I have the longer one.

Nike Daybreak sneakers – These sneaks are a little retro, comfy and cool. The color combo options are perfect. Wear them with denim, dresses and, of course, your favorite activewear.

J.Crew swim – Between the best ever white shirt cover up to stylish swimwear (this, this and this), you’ll be set for all your vacations. I have several styles, and find them to be flattering, run true to size, and easy to wear due to the color options.


$59 utility jacket | $98 dress


Left: $59 Utility jacket | ATM t-shirt | Rag & Bone jeans | Sandals | Right: Stripe dress, $98 | Sandals | Tory Burch bucket bag

$59 utility jacket This affordable jacket continues to be one of the most-worn pieces in my closet, and it really is that good. I find it to run TTS, and I’m wearing it in a size XS.

Levi’s denim jacket – I recently picked up this jacket, and I like it just as much as some of the pricier ones I own. I wore it yesterday, and I posted the outfit here. It already sold out at Revolve, so don’t wait too long!

Nordstrom label – The side slit cardigan for $69 is amazing, and so versatile! Every year the linen pant returns, and I love the jogger, wide-leg style and this one too. They’re amazing. If you need a work basic tank, check this $59 one out.

Levi’s Icon wedgie jeans – These are among my favorite Levi’s jeans, particularly the lighter wash. They’re a classic style you’ll have for a very long time.

Whetherly denim – Last year, my girlfriend alerted me that this is the top selling denim line in the department where she works. While I haven’t purchased a pair, I know first-hand they’re good, and a great option for staying under $100!


Intimates under $100

Chantelle soft stretch panties – This is a favorite panty if you ask anyone working in the lingerie department. The soft-stretch is really soft, and it comes in several different styles. I prefer these not-sexy ones, and wear these under dresses when I just want to be comfortable. I’ve also tried the thong and this style. Love them all.

Natori Bliss thongs – hands down, Natori Bliss thongs are the best. The colors are always pretty, and I find them to fit perfectly under denim.

Wacoal favorites – Wacoal is one of my favorite brands, and I like so many of their items, including the strapless Red Carpet Bra, the Softly Styled bra, Halo Lace and Elevated Allure underwire bra. Miryha, the lead designer, shared this body base panty with me, and now I wear it under dresses when I want a little smoothing. I wore it today under this dress.

Nordstrom Moonlight PJs – These are the softest pj’s, and since they’re so comfy, I decided to add this fun print! You can see other long-sleeved versions here.
