Now that we have kids, we don’t have as much extra spending cash like we used to. Raising a family is fantastic, but it brings on a lot of new expenses.
It’s completely worth it, but alas, I can’t help but miss buying little things for myself here and there on a whim. Now my goal is to always find that fantastic bargain – either great sales or great little finds. You know, those fantastic little treasures you always get compliments on, and you think to yourself, little do they know how much I spent on this!
I recently was looking for some fun, stylish jewelry to update my wardrobe in an easy way, and I came across some really great little finds that are all under $50 that I want to share with you!
1. Floral Bib Necklace
I love this sweet necklace and it looks amazing when I’m wearing a plain low neck tee or sweater. It really adds a lot to my outfit and I always get a ton of compliments. Pair it with a cute blazer and boots and voila, stylish in a matter of seconds. $10.80 from Forever21.com
2. Translucent Flower Ring
I love this ring, especially with spring coming up. It has an adjustable band so not to worry about sizing. It’s a statement ring, and would look cute with a spring dress or even a tee and jeans. For those mornings when you’re in a rush, you can put on this ring and feel like you’re wearing a little something special. $18.00 from Nordstrom
3. Circle Hoop Earrings
You can choose from Ivory, Coral, Mint or Lemon Drop – all on trend colors for spring. (Coral shown here) These earrings can we worn dressed up or dressed down – they are versatile so for what little money you’re spending on them, they’ll get a lot of use. $39.50 from Banana Republic
4. Daisy Stretch Bracelet
This bracelet is made of glass and acrylic stones and looks so elegant. It’s a nice, big size making it another statement piece. I’m all about statement jewelry because then it hides the fact that I put barely any thought into the rest of what I’m wearing. Since I’m always making a mad dash trying to get my daughter to school in the morning, I usually only have about 20 seconds to get myself dressed. At least with some stylish jewelry (that’s not breaking the bank) I can feel like I look a little put together! $45.00 from Banana Republic
