Summer Style Staples Under $100


Inspired by effortless French girl style, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite things for summer that check out at $100 or less. The summer is a time to get outside and let your natural beauty shine through, so I love simple staples that are versatile and easy to wear. Enjoy!

Nisolo Camilla Slides $88

Nisolo is one of my all time favorite shoe brands. They make sustainable, fair trade shoes without the markup from middlemen. They are amazing quality and will last you many seasons to come. These Camilla Slides are a favorite for summer– easy to dress up or down depending on the occasion (use this link for $25 off).

Circular Basket $32

I’m obsessed with the basket trend this summer, and this one is perfect for the beach or farmers market. The long straps make it easy to carry and it would look chic with a sundress and strappy sandals or with cutoffs and a tee.


Denim Skirt $78

I love the way denim skirts have come back in style– and no it’s not your unflattering cutoff mini from middle school. A-line options with buttons or zippers down the front are a chic alternative to shorts this summer. I love this one from Madewell with pockets for extra detailing.

Pai Rosehip Oil $40

Serums are a great alternative to lotions as they are more concentrated and deliver greater nourishment and hydration. They tend to be pricey but this amazing Rosehip Oil from Pai checks out at only $40 and is completely safe and non-toxic too! It’s great for the summer since it reduces the effects of UV damage and evens the skin tone… Use it on it’s own or mix it with your daily moisturizer.

White Crop $18

During the summer, a white crop tee is a must. They look great with everything – high waisted skirt, maxi skirt, over a bathing suit… the list goes on. Nordstrom has some cute ones that are under $40, I love this one and this one.

Espadrilles $50

For effortless French girl style (See Exhibit A), espadrilles top the charts for chic summer shoes. I love the affordable selection that Soludos has– this striped pair is comfortable and versatile to go with many outfits and occasions (see how Jess styled them here).

Polaroid Sunnies $65

Who knew Polaroid made sunglasses? I love this affordable pair and they even have 100% UV protection and polarized lenses. Plus, they are stainless steel so you don’t have to worry about them snapping if you tend to drop your glasses, like me.

Bikini Top $100

It’s so hard to find affordable bathing suits that are cute and flattering, so I like to splurge a little on a top that can go with multiple bottoms that I already own. This millennial pink one from Vix checks in right at the top of our budget at $100 and would look great paired with black or white bottoms.
