RUFFLE BLOUSE: Aqua  |  PLEATED MIDI SKIRT: Bardot  |  BLACK SANDALS: Vince Camuto  |  ENVELOPE CLUTCH: Rebecca Minkoff  |  FRONT HOOP EARRINGS: Argento Vivo  |  ROUND SUNGLASSES: Sunday Somewhere



I’m excited to continue my Under $100 series with a festive summer look today, featuring this favorite striped ruffle one-shoulder top and this classic midi skirt.  In addition to these affordable clothing items, it bears repeating that even my shoes, bags and accessories in this series are ALL under $100 as well, like the AMAZING Rebecca Minkoff envelope clutch I’m sporting today.  It comes in a million gorgeous colors, and is perfect for everything from casual drinks to formal events.  I own it in black and red, and am thinking of springing for the blush!

You can really never have too many versatile day-to-night, wear-everywhere staple pieces, amiright?  Over the years, I’ve found it really doesn’t get much better than a classic midi skirt because there’s nowhere a midi skirt can’t take you—the office, Sunday brunch, date night, drinks with the girls, church with your grandma, YOU NAME IT.  It’s the über classy, understatedly elegant must-have piece everyone needs in their closet.

I bought a navy version of today’s pleated midi skirt nearly FIVE years ago, and it’s still by far the most heavily-worn skirt I own.  If you’re looking for more affordable midi options, check out this asymmetric black midi skirt, this pretty ruffled high-low midi wrap skirt or this black suede a-line beauty—all under $100!  And if none of those strike your fancy, check out the montage of ALL my favorite sub-$100 midi skirts below!

    Seriously. Great under $100 picks. They LOOK high quality too! I don’t think pleats would suit me but this makes me want to try it. I mean, I didn’t used to be into ruffles but now I am crazy into them and bell sleeves haha 🙂
