25 Affordable Summer Buys I Personally Own

Apr 10, 2019

affordable summer buys

My first night at the Patrón Hacienda and I got so many compliments on this Free People dress! (more Free People here) It’s included in the sale and comes in a ton of colors!


Is that you summer? I feel like Spring may finally be in full swing which means warmer weather is on the horizon. Since one of my favorite websites, Shopbop just launched a big sale I thought it might be the perfect time to share some pieces I have recently picked up, already own and also think would be great for this season. 

So, here are the details:

20% off order under $500 | 25% off orders over $500

* Includes regular and sale items *

Use code EVENT19 at checkout


I tried to break down the categories below and I’m sure you have seen everything under the ‘Personally Own’ category multiple times on here! I cover size and fit on each piece below but if you are looking for something else just shoot me a DM over on Instagram or search it on the blog!




AGolde Parker Shorts: These have been discussed many a times on the blog previously (more AGolde here) and we all know I am a huge fan. The price point is a little high for jean shorts so in case you have been holding back this is a great time to snag them. They fit a bit oversized so I always recommend ordering TTS!


Madewell White Jeans: I just got these before my Mexico trip and really like them. I have yet to find a white pair I like as much as my Everlane kick crop’s but these are a totally different look. They have a great fit, didn’t have any see through and fit TTS for me. If you are in between I suggest sizing down because I think Madewell denim in general runs a little big.


Le Specs Aviators: I recently got these before our Austin trip and love! I have a more narrow face so finding aviators can be challenging. (More Le Specs here) If that’s you, there are great! The lenses are far more matte than the picture shows which I like.


Le Rumi Set (Top & Bottom): I picked this up before heading to Mexico and it was my favorite outfit! The pants are super versatile and insanely comfortable. I think I may do a post with a couple different ways to style them! The two together were adorable and would be perfect for a rehearsal dinner or cocktail party this summer. The material is fairly stretchy—I wore a Small bottom and XS top.


Free People Pink Dress: Another dress I’ve shared a few times but a great buy during the sale. I wear it with the lace bralette and get so many compliments every time. The cut is pretty low but you can always use sticky tape or even fasten it without it being noticeable. I’m wearing an XS.


Free People Bralette: LOVE this and don’t know why I waited so long to get it! I have it in nude and like that I can wear it under almost anything. It runs pretty big which I found surprising, I’m wearing an XS.


Gorjana Necklace: I always get a ton of questions on this necklace and although it is a little more than I would normally spend on jewelry I’ve barely taken it off. The chain is adjustable and it adds something chic to any outfit.


Steven Greece Sandals: My go to’s and so comfortable with no break in required. I do have a narrower foot and wear TTS.


Jeffrey Campbell slides: I love this brand and this color and material struck me as so high end. I was a little worried that they would be hard to walk in and flop off the back of my foot but so far so good.


Beyond Yoga Leggings: These are my splurge workout pants! I own one pair and have to stop myself from buying more. They are insanely soft and don’t move at all when you are working out. They run a bit big, I’m wearing an XS.


Staud Handbag: I looked at this bag for months before I bought it but I think if you are in the market get this croc print before it sells out again. I have worn it in almost every season and it’s easy to dress up or down.


Knot Sisters Dress: I just shared a post on this dress with all the details! Totally recommend and runs TTS.


Golden Goose Sneakers: Shared a huge blog post on whether these are a good investment or not and would be amazing to snag during the sale. They restock sizes all the time so you just have to stalk 😉 That’s how I got mine!


AG Black Skinny Jeans: A great investment pair of black skinny jeans that I think could work for most offices. Run TTS.


Madewell Tank: My go to everyday tank that I own in like 500 colors. I also have this one!


Madewell Kent Cardigan: My go to cardigan that I also own in like 500 colors. Listen, when you like something just stick with it, ha! They also have the black version on sale currently.


ASTR The Label Rust Dress: This color is one of my faves and I loved the detailing! I had done a try on of this on stories to show the ruffle sleeve and tie detail. Super light material and great for warm weather! Runs TTS.


Brixton Hat: This is my summer hat and I have owned it for years and it still looks brand new! 


Madewell Black Fray Jeans: I love and live in these jeans. I have had them forever and the fray adds a little something extra to a casual outfit. These are probably what I wear when running around with Zain most often. 


Ray Ban Round Aviators: Probably my most versatile and used sunglasses. They go with everything and a great on any face shape!


Birkenstock Arizona Slides: I have had these for years and still wear them constantly. I used them so much I bought two additional colors since purchasing these years ago. 


Levi’s Distressed Jeans: These are so flattering and I wear them all spring and summer every year. I find they have more stretch than most Levi’s so I would order TTS. I am going to cut the hem’s of mine this year but they run fairly long. 


Madewell Denim Jacket: The ultimate layering piece for spring and summer. It was the only jacket I just took to Mexico and they go with everything! 










Hope that this was helpful and if you have any other questions just let me know!
