Six Cute Summer Buys Under $60

Hi friends!

Memorial Day Weekend is upon us. I cannot even believe it! Was it not Christmas just last week? Alas, it’s true so today, I am divulging six finds I’ve recently discovered under $60 that I’d encourage you to consider for your Summer wardrobe!

First up … this beautiful ruffle detailed wrap dress! It got terrible reviews on the product page but it looked stunning so I decided to try it for myself. Personally, I disagree with the negative review and think it could be a great option for a beach getaway or a bridal shower! The material is soft and flowy. There are lots of opportunities for this dress to fit multiple body types. I am not very busty and, typically, wrap dresses are not my friend for that reason but this one works but there’s also room for anyone who does have more of a chest. The bow on the side is adjustable and, on the inside, there are two button holes to fit your waist size. The straps are also adjustable! So, it’s honestly really impressed me, especially considering it’s $55! Highly recommend! I’m wearing an XS for reference.

Linen pants are an item that I personally love to have in my Summer wardrobe. In college, I wore them all of the time with a basic tank top. After a long day in the sun, all I would want is to wear something comfortable that was pretty ‘cool’ on my sunburnt skin, ha! I threw out my tried and true linen pants last year so I’m in the market for some new ones this year. I tried this pair [see me try them on later today on stories] and, sadly, they were a little too big and long on me BUT … they would work for so many other people. If you’re 5’5 and up and wear a size 2, I think the XS would work for you! They’re so cute and under $40!

Kimonos are another item I love to have in my Spring and Summer wardrobe. You can wear them with a bathing suit or with an outfit so you really get your money’s worth and you typically don’t have to make that big of an investment on a cute one! I recently purchased this one and love the colors in it!

This scalloped clutch is another great Summer buy that will go with so many of your outfits. Sadly, it has sold out since I shot this but there are a few similar ones you can consider that are affordable, as well, like this one and this one. I also recently snagged this stunning straw satchel bag that is so beautifully done at only $40! It has a sophisticated edge that will really elevate your Summer style.

Last, but not least, this layered necklace set is so on trend, beautifully done, and only $48! I will be wearing these all summer long!

The wonderful thing about all of these pieces is that they can all be found at Nordstrom! I’ve been shopping at Nordstrom over the last few years and have never been disappointed with the variety of products they offer, their customer focused return policy and the way their employees treat their customers. Not to mention, they are currently running their Half Yearly Sale where you can enjoy up to 50% off across all departments and on brands like Madewell, Topshop, BP. and more!

What have you found recently that are great buys for Summer but won’t break the bank? I need the scoop!
