Your $50 Budget Fall Must Have Shopping List

Simply Shawn N Jenn Disclosure

Let’s face it, we do not all have the money that we want when it comes to finding the greatest fall pieces to update our wardrobe. So I thought that I would help you out and offer you some great pieces to update your wardrobe on any budget. Today I am tackling the challenge of the $50 budget. That means that every single piece that you see in this wardrobe collection will be available to you for $50 (that is the total of all of the pieces, not $50 per item!).

Fall Fashion 50 Finds

I have found that boutiques are a great way to find fun functional pieces for every season on a budget. I love Apricot Lanes Peoria. I really love the Lightweight Transitional Cardi. Plus at $28 I find this fun, functional and very stylish piece to be a steal.

Fall Fashion 50 Finds 2

The Favorite V-Neck Tee from Forever 21 comes in a variety of fall ready colors like this great rich shade of yellow. It is just $3.80 so you can easily fit it into your fall fashion budget!

Fall Fashion 50 Finds 3

A great pair of Jersey Leggings can work with this combination to complete your look. They can also be paired with your favorite summer dresses to be able to make them appropriate for the cooler fall weather. The best part is that this pair from H & M is just $9.95.

Fall Fashion 50 Finds 4

The 10DollarMall.com website is a great place to find reasonable pieces and extras to go with your fashion forward looks. I love scarves for the winter time and the Shades of Yellow Striped Knit Scarf for $5 is a great find.

Fall Fashion 50 Finds 5

Finally the Down to Earth Dove Bracelet from Forever 21 is just what you need to give your look that little something special. Plus it is just $2.80.

So you can have all of these pieces for $50!!  The trick to fall fashion on a budget is to remember that pieces need to be able to work with a number of looks and pieces that you already own.

Spending Your Summers with Kohls

Simply Shawn N Jenn Disclosure

Kohls logo

Did you realize that Kohls has everything that you need for the summer? To be honest, even though I am a huge fan of the brand I did not realize how many amazing products they had and that they had everything that I would need for the summer time.

IMG_0937[1]

I was very excited when I received notice that I would be able to review the summer blogger box. I mean, honestly, what could be better than getting a huge box of hand picked items that are perfect for the summer time? I can’t think of much.

IMG_0938[1]

Summer Outdoor Needs…FOUND
There are so many things that you can find when you are looking at Kohls for the best for your summer fun. The SONOMA Outdoors Pillow ($24.99) is the perfect accessory to brighten your outdoor seating area and make lounging outdoors fun. I find that I love the pillow and that it is perfect for laying out in the yard. I would love to be able to use this for a great way to relax while lounging in a hammock.

IMG_0939[1]

The SONOMA Outdoors Solar Powered Outdoor Lantern ($24.99) is just what you need to be able to enjoy those breezy evenings on your patio. This lantern looks adorable and offers just the light that you need to enjoy your time in your back yard.

IMG_0945[1]

Summer Fashion Needs…FOUND
We all know that Kohls has a lot of great finds for the fashionista. The Mudd Convertible Maxi ($40) offers you the ability to have an adorable maxi dress or a great maxi skirt so that your fashion needs are met.

IMG_0965[1]

Mudd Soft Pants ($40) will give you the ability to jump on the patterned pants trend without spending too much money or having to worry about finding a pair that are flattering. The shape of these pants is very flattering on a variety of different body types.

IMG_0958[1]

Right now short shorts and printed materials are all the rage. I love the SO Pink Pineapple Shorts ($36) that came with the box. These are adorable and look great on too. I went to Kohls just to try them on in my size and while I am not normally a short shorts type of girl they looked way better on than I had initially imagined.

IMG_0969[1]

There are so many trends this summer and Kohls seems to be on point with every single one. The bright capri pant trend is another that looks that great on any woman. I love the Elle 5 Pocket Roll Cuff Capris ($44) that were a part of the blogger summer box.

IMG_0967[1]

A perfect white top is just what is needed to go with the patterned pants, shorts, or bright capris. One of the best choices that I have seen has come from Kohls. I love the Daisy Fuentes Back Wrap Tank Top ($40). This shirt has an open back but it is low enough that you can still comfortably wear a bra with the shirt.

IMG_0964[1]

When you need something for that summer concert or festival Kohls can take care of that as well. The Rock & Republic Anchors Away Ribbed Tank ($40) is a great choice for all of those who want to have some rocker flair with their style.

IMG_0957[1]

Not everyone can always find a jumpsuit that is going to look great on them. However the Jennifer Lopez jumpsuit ($70) is really a perfect choice for everyone. It is very flattering and looks great on women who are all shapes and sizes.

IMG_0963[1]

Summer time is the perfect time for cute tank tops. I love the Candies Tie Front Spaghetti Tank Top ($28) that was sent as part of this box. The bright colors are so much fun and it is the type of tank that will look great over a cami.

IMG_0962[1]

Another great tank that I got in the box was the Princess Vera Wang “A” Back Chiffon Tank Top ($28). This top is perfect for anyone who wants a little something special from their tank. I love the “A” detail in the back and the cute on trend print that the tank came in.

IMG_0960[1]

If you are looking for something a little more special and something that is going to really make you feel great when you are shopping this summer then you should check out the Simply Vera Wang Open Stitch Pullover Top ($58). This shirt is adorable and looks great with dress clothes so that you can feel confident while still having some great summer fashion finds.

IMG_0959[1]

Summer Swimwear…FOUND
Summer swimwear can be hard to find in styles that look great on everyone. Thankfully SO Swimwear Separates ($28-32 each) offer the perfect bikini.

IMG_0973[1]

Plus they offer a great tankini for anyone who wants to show a little less skin.

IMG_0972[2]

Summer Beach Needs…FOUND
Everyone needs a great coverup when they are going to be at the beach. The LC Lauren Conrad Crochet Boxy Top ($44) is the perfect choice to throw on over a bikini when you are going to and from the beach. It also looks great with a tank under it and a pair of shorts.

IMG_0961[2]

The Big One Geo Dot Beach Towel ($25.99) is the most amazing beach towel that I have ever owned. It is HUGE which I love because it gives me enough space to not only care for myself but whichever child wants to be right next to mommy while we are at the beach or pool.

IMG_0951[1]

Summer Entertaining Needs…FOUND
I love music so my one need for summer is great speakers that I can take anywhere with me. I love the iHome Rechargeable Mini Speaker ($29.99) because it offers great sound quality in a compact size. I also love that it folds up and can be taken anywhere that I need to take it.

IMG_0952[1]

The HDMX Jam Bluetooth Speaker ($49.99) is also a great buy and a great choice for you if you are on the go. It comes in a handy jar that you can put the speaker in when it is not in use.

IMG_0953[1]

Not only is music needed for summer entertaining but food is needed as well. I personally love the SONOMA Outdoors Set of 3 Nesting Bowls ($29.99). These bowls feature fun patterns and great bright colors that are fun for everyone to check out while enjoying delicious foods that you can serve from them. Plus since there are lids you never have to worry about any unwanted friends joining in the party.

IMG_0947[1]

Summertime is also the perfect time to enjoy some delicious cold beverages. The SONOMA Life + Style Mason Jar Cup ($9.99) is a must have for anyone who is looking to have a great time with entertaining. Not only is it hard to spill this one, but it is also hard to break since it is plastic. I love using mine with the kids or just for my own drinks as well.

IMG_0944[1]

When you are having a great brunch or just when you want to add some eclectic fun to your tablescape you can check out the Food Network Cow Creamer ($8.99). This creamer is a great choice for anyone who is fond of cows as well.

IMG_0946[1]

The Kohls Cares line offers the Women’s Day Easy Everyday Dinners Cookbook for just $5. This cookbook has some great recipes for you to enjoy with your friends and family and is perfect for helping you prepare your menu for entertaining.

IMG_0943[2]

Summer Accessory Needs…FOUND
The first summer accessory that I always think of is a great pair of sunglasses. I will admit that I have high expectations for the sunglasses that I wear. I want them to look good on my face while offering a great deal of style at the same time. I love the Simply Vera Vera Wang Opal Sunglasses ($34). These sunglasses offer a high style look that looks good on everyone.

IMG_0948[1]

Earrings are also a ton of fun when you are at the beach or going to dinner. I received the Jennifer Lopez Earrings ($18). These earrings are cute and stylish. I also received the adorable Apt 9 Floppy Hat ($38) which I love being able to wear when it is summer time. It is perfect for being in the sun.

IMG_0949[1]

Another accessory that I find to be a must is a great summer bag. I prefer a summer bag that is large and can tote around all of the things that I need for myself and my four children. This is why I love the Croft & Borrow Curved Tote ($49). It is large enough to offer me all of the things that I need and it comes in one of my favorite colors of green.

IMG_0950[1]

Finally I love the Candies Floral Loop Scarf ($26) when I am trying to find a way to dress up my summer outfits. There are so many different outfits that I wear this scarf with. It looks great with so many things.

IMG_0954[1]

Mudd sandals are very comfortable and adorable. I love that these sandals are versatile enough to wear with a skirt or dress while also being perfect with a pair of pants or capris.

IMG_0956[1]

Summer Beauty Needs…FOUND
I never really thought about Kohls being the place to go for my beauty needs. This area of the store has recently undergone a transformation and my beauty product obsessed self is finding it to be the most fun new area of the store. I LOVE Lorac so when I received the great Back to Bronze Kit I knew that it was something that I would be happy to review. I was very excited to check out the additional Kohls beauty products the next time that I went to the store.

IMG_0955[1]

Summer Kids Fun Needs…FOUND
My kids love toys. Okay so I will admit, what kids do not? I know that toys are fun but I hate spending a lot of money on things like stuffed animals. Yes, my kids get excited about them for a while but sometimes I have a hard time finding the perfect one. The Rio 2 stuffed animal (just $5) actually helps you to help someone else. Since it is part of the Kohls Cares line you are donating to charity when you purchase any of the items.

IMG_0940[1]

Another great Rio 2 find was the book “Rio 2: Blu’s Wild Journey” ($5). I love the book and have really enjoyed reading it with the children.

IMG_0942[1]

Kohls has everything that you need for the perfect summer fun.
