Weekly Top Ten

Though I've never shopped at Saks Fifth Avenue before, I recently discovered the Off 5th site and have been pleasantly surprised by all the affordable finds.  Similar to Nordstrom Rack or TJ Maxx, they have brand names like Joie, Rebecca Taylor, Equipment & more at prices that are pretty unbelievable.  I technically went over 10 items here...but there were so many great pieces that I had a hard time narrowing it down!  And they are currently offering free shipping on all orders using code FREESHIP.  Here are my top budget-friendly picks for spring:

Sporty Dress

If I'm being totally honest, this hasn't been the best week for me.  Nothing particularly bad has happened, but I've just felt a little down and have struggled to find my usual optimistic spirit.  After a few days of throwing a pity party, I decided it was time that I snapped out of it...and there's no greater mood-booster than a bright dress & bold lip! Nothing beats wearing a silhouette that makes you feel like a million bucks - for me, a fit & flare shape does the trick every time.  I love the flattering colorblocked details that give this a slightly sporty feel + I couldn't help but smile wearing this cheery persimmon hue.

What I'm wearing:
c/o Dorothy Perkins dress (I'm wearing a 4 Tall; also in regular), c/o LuLu*s heels (similar here or here), 
c/o ShopLately clutch (similar), c/o Kitsch earrings, c/o Capwell & Co. ring, Lips: Revlon Colorburst Coral

20 Under $20

It's always interesting to me to see how sales fluctuate throughout any given season.  Some months, it takes hours of work to come up with 20 items that I deem worthy of sharing here...and then there are times (like today) where I find so many great options that I end up going overboard.  Since there happened to be an abundance of good deals going on this week, I decided to put together 6 looks featuring pieces that are all $20 or less - the top row is for those of you who are having summer-like weather already and and the bottom row is for those cooler spring days.

ONE:  Piperlime Collection Top (40% off w/ code SALEONSALE) // ASOS Collection Clutch
Warehouse Check Print Culottes // Forever 21 Faux Suede Slide Sandals (also in olive, taupe & blush)

FOUR:  Wells Grace Crochet Top (40% off w/ code SALEONSALE)// Mango Striped Scarf
Joe Fresh Straw Tote // Joe Fresh Shorts // Old Navy Lace-Up Sandals (30% off w/ code ENJOY)
