Do y’all remember my Under $25 Fall Favorites collage from last week? I had SO MUCH FUN deciding which items to highlight, and y’all seemed to really love what I ended up featuring. I talked about each of the items last week and promised to show them to you this week.
Well, today I’m going to STYLE the items! It’s seriously hard to believe that all of these items are under $25…some are under $20…and some are under $15!
1. tassel necklace /2. bracelet (A2 short gold super similar to mine) / 3. gold hoops /4. orange bracelet / 5. warm and cozy candle and hello fall candle /6. bag strap (beige black) / 7. leopard flats / 8. lip gloss stick (“one mauve time”)/9. mask chain strap /10. mask / 11. tan slippers / 12. blingy necklace / 13. bandana (rusty torch multi) / 14. tote (brown new)/ 15. short cardi (“mocha mouse”)
Before we start with the outfits, I wanted to show you some up close shots. The grouping below highlights most of the jewelry from the collage, and I even threw in a couple of extra pairs of under $15 earrings that I have and love. I highly recommend everything you see below.
And here’s a good look at the mask and mask chain, the bag strap, and the flats!
And Y’all. Can you believe this tote? Isn’t it gorgeous?
So you know it’s Under $25 because it was on the Under $25 collage….
BUT GET THIS….It’s ONLY $15.99!!!!! I seriously cannot get over the price.
The tote comes in sooooooooooooo many colors. I ordered 3 in the brown/cognac family, and this one was the clear winner! It’s called “brown new”, and it looked the most like real leather, and the color was definitely the most rich. As you can see, I like tying a bandana to the strap (click HERE for all Madewell bandana choices), but look below the bandana and you will see the cute tassel that comes on the bag! It’s great too! And this tote is the perfect size for the medium felt organizer. If you head to instastories later today, I’ll show you the inside of the bag and the organizer too.
Also, I’ve had a handful of readers ask, and it’s definitely smaller than the cognac tote I have from Nordstrom. I know some of you didn’t like how large the Nordstrom tote was, so I’m happy that you now have this as an option. I will say, I’ve carried the Nordstrom tote for over a year now and have always been impressed with the size and durability…but this new tote actually looks nicer, and it honestly looks more like real leather.
Okay, so this outfit has 8 of the items in the Under $25 collage including the earrings, both necklaces, the cardi, the bracelet, the bag, the bandana, and the flats.
The outfit is obviously super budget friendly, and I think it’s awesome! All of the individual pieces are great on their own and can be mixed and matched in tons of different outfits, but they also all came together so nicely for today’s outfit.
First and foremost, this cardigan in mocha mousse is FABULOUS. The “mocha mousse” is a great neutral color for Fall, although it’s reading more pink in these pictures than it really is. I would describe it as “mocha” that leans brown with blush undertones. It also comes in other great basic colors like black, navy, grey, and cream. This cardi is an awesome staple to have in your wardrobe and multiple colors in your closet wouldn’t hurt. (The other colors are more expensive, but they are still all under $30, and I can promise you that’s still a great deal. UPDATE: As Amazon sometimes does, they’ve now raised the price of the mocha mousse cardi, but I promise it’s worth it!) These cardigans are casual enough to wear with jeans and sneakers, but they are definitely nice enough for the office as well.
For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
I love everything you see here! And as a reminder…the cardi is under $20, the blingy necklace is under $15, the tassel necklace is under $10, the tote is under $20, and the flats are under $25! WOW.
Let’s talk about the leopard flats. First of all, they are only $23. Second of all, they are darling. Now, straight talk here….they aren’t uncomfortable, but they aren’t as comfy as my Steve Madden leopard flats. But my Steve Madden flats are over 4x as much, so I would hope they would be more comfortable. The Amazon flats do hold their shape better than the leopard Walmart flats I showed you last month. I’ve found that the Walmart ones get wider as the day goes on.
For this next outfit, I switched it up just a tiny bit.
I traded out the regular denim for black denim, and I switched out the tote for my LV and this awesome under $20 bag strap! The strap is great material, an awesome graphic design, and very well made. It will look great with a solid brown purse, a solid black purse, and I’ll be wearing it with my LV.
These simple gold hoops are all the rage right now, and these are a nice medium size, perfect for everyday wear. Such a beautifully simple basic that will go with everything. This blingy necklace is so dainty, so feminine, and so sparkly! And it’s under $15! I grabbed both the silver and the gold. #becausefifteendollars They are beautiful on their own, but they are also perfect for layering with other necklaces.
This bracelet (A2 short gold) has a magnetic closure and boasts multilayered gold leather cords. To be honest, when I saw it in the package, I was a little disappointed. But then I put it on and fell in love. It’s so good and just under $12 right now. There are countless color options and variations of this bracelet, and I suggest you hop over to check some of them out. Lots of the options are actually really great.
One more small outfit change.
I took off the tassel necklace, and now I’m wearing the camo mask and the gold mask strap!
These are still my favorite masks, and I know they are many of y’alls favorites too. You can get 2 for $25. These masks have nose-to-chin coverage and are machine washable for reusable convenience. After wearing several different masks for the last almost 6 months now, I know I really need my masks to have a metal nose piece that helps to keep the mask in place, and these have the metal nose piece! (I’m told the nose piece also helps glasses not to fog up, for those of you that wear glasses.) This one stays put and I never have to readjust it.
This mask chain is the perfect solution to a mask issue I was having, because I never knew where to put my mask in the car or when eating out at a restaurant. Use the code CHAINDEAL to get it for $22 (instead of the regular $38)!
Here are 3 of the patterns that the mask comes in. I’m not even showing my favorite pattern (the engineered stripes) because I can’t find mine. These are all great for Fall outfits.
And here’s what is extra cool about the mask chain….
After the pandemic is over, it can be worn as a necklace! I LOVE THAT! And remember, use the code CHAINDEAL to get it for only $22!
Okay, it’s time to move on to some of the other items in the collage….
I shared before that I bought this exact lip gloss stick earlier this year because I saw another blogger raving about this product in this color. She said she was in a wedding and one of the bridesmaids was wearing it, and that every bridesmaid tried it and it looked great on everybody. WELL. I think she was right. I’ve had 3 friends buy it already, and everybody loves it. It’s like no product I’ve ever tried before. The tube makes it look like it’s a wand with lip gloss, but it’s actually a very soft stick. The consistency is similar to the the Laneige lip mask that I’m obsessed with, and this “One Mauve Time” is just the prettiest color. I love it so much. (Disclaimer: It was on sale for $20 when I created the collage, but it’s no longer on sale.)
I first showed you this leopard pajama set last week, and I’m still loving it. In fact, I have it on now as I’m typing these words.
But today is the first day you are seeing the under $25 slippers that I featured in the collage!
The slippers arrived a couple of weekends ago and THEY ARE AWESOME. I ordered a medium, just because they didn’t have smalls, and the mediums actually work great on me (and I’m a 6 1/2). I could go a bit smaller, but the mediums really are fine. I’m already wearing them non-stop. They’re cute, they’re cozy, and they’re comfy!
And we can’t forget the Fall candles… I love how clean and simple they look, and they smell AMAZING.
AND GREAT NEWS! Yesterday I got an e-mail from HauteLook, and you can click HERE to get a set of 2 candles for $34.97!
Again, click HERE to get the 2 pack bundle from Hautelook.
And just because I cannot leave well enough alone when there’s a deal to be had, I have some more Under $25 Fall finds that I either thought about this week or discovered this week!
* I just grabbed this $20 sweater from Target for my upcoming Target haul. In fact, I got a striped one and the leopard one. Make sure you check the “women” box to see all of the available colors. The medium is a perfectly slouchy fit on me and gives a bit of extra length.
* From the same makers of the gold hoops, pave hoops, and blingy necklaces….this sparkly eternity band is so pretty. Great for stacking.
* Did you see the tie dye pullover I featured on Monday? It was perfect for a cool Saturday morning at Carter’s soccer game. It was too bad the coolness didn’t last the entire game. Click HERE to see me in it with cut offs and pink sneakers.
* The 2 pack of my favorite Amazon sunglasses is BACK IN STOCK. I have them in both black and tortoise. I didn’t buy the 2 pack initially because it wasn’t an option then, but I can’t believe that you can grab both for UNDER $20! I first bought them to wear at the ranch because of the price point, but these are great glasses, and I wear them ALL THE TIME. In fact, these and my Quays are the only ones I ever really wear. If you’re not interested in the 2 pack, you can also get just 1 pair for $13.
* I think I mentioned this before, but this Brazillian Kiss Lip Butter is FANTASTIC. It’s so hydrating, it’s so convenient, and it smells amazing.
* The crop version of my favorite Amazon leggings (totally comparable to Zella in my opinion) are just under $25. I wear the smalls.
* These are my favorite camis and have been for years! They are ONLY $12! They are quite snug, so I recommend sizing up. And I noticed today that these lace camisoles are on sale for just under $25 right now. The black and cream are great basics, but the leopard and the rusty red options are gorgeous.
*** If I was going to do a FALL FAVES UNDER $100 collage, I would make sure to include these grey jeans, these dark wash jeans, and this embroidered lace blouse in wine. I’ve already styled the blouse in pictures (I’ll show them next week), and it’s GORGEOUS. It’s seriously one of my favorites tops I’ve ever put on my body.
So I’m curious….
Did you grab anything for yourself today?
Or maybe you have an Under $25 find you need to share with us!
