Must Haves Under $50


This weekend I was doing some shopping in preparation for Alt Summit. As a young business owner you don’t always have…say “free” cash lying around to pour in to the so-called perfect outfit for every occasion so this year I have decided to stay on a better budget when it comes to fashion. This year we are doing a lot to save and put away money so we can make some big dreams come true for us personally. Thought I have to be honest and say I am still a girl who loves to shop…so I have to be able to buy something once and a while, but what if it was cheap and under budget? Yeah I think we can do that.

So to prove you can I wrangled up some really cute things that are all under $50 and some even under $25 or $10. Most of this could come together with a cute pair of tights and classic coat to make for a great outfit for any event…all way under what you may pay for the amazing Tracy Reese and Kate Spade dress you have been eyeing. Who says you cannot be a stylin’ lady on a budget, and who says anyone has to know?

  1. I am right there with you on making better purchases. I’d much rather buy a $20 gem while on a little Paris getaway that I’ve saved up for – definitely a 2013 goal! (I do love that polka dot H+M top though, hehe)


  2. Ah! I’m ramping up for ALT too and had the exact same thought. I feel like I’m on a bit of a spending rampage right now and I need to tighten the leash on myself a little. This month I’m focused on eating right and next month is going to be all about mula.

    Hope to meet you at ALT!

  3. I think that infinity scarves are perfect for just about everything. I love the way they look and think that you could never have enough. xo, Maria
