Guest Post :: 5 Summer Styles for $100 or Less

Happy Friday, Y'all! I hope you had a fun 4th of July! I'm still on vacation so today I have a guest post from the lovely Lesley Kennedy, Managing Editor of the ShopAtHome.com Online Shopping Report. ShopAtHome.com is a really cool site that offers coupons and cash back. As an avid online shopper, I was thrilled to find another cash back site! 
I learned about this site a few weeks ago and invited Lesley to do a guest post. 
She's here with some fabulous Summer Styles all for $100 or less! 
So without further adieu, take it away, Lesley...


Don’t get me wrong: I love a cozy sweater, a fab coat and a chic pair of knee-high boots as much as the next gal, but after months of cold weather, I’m ready to dive head first into summer’s fashion waters. And, now that summer is in full swing, and the heat is hot, hot, hot, the only thing that can cool me down are these five crisp items I’m totally coveting. Bonus! With each priced at $100 or less plus the additional savings I’ll score from ShopAtHome coupons, I may even have money left over for that beach trip we’ve been dreaming about. Here’s to a white hot summer!

Totes cool! Headed to the pool or the beach like me? You’re gonna need a tote to carry all your essentials -- you know, sunscreen, Kindle, iPod, jelly beans, US Weekly. This one is cute enough to take shopping, and the studs make it edgy enough to take out at night. Go ahead and make friends, I know I did – I have a feeling we’ll be spending a lot of time together. Mango Touch studded canvas shopper, $79.99, mango.com.  And to save a couple of bucks make sure you check out the Mango coupons and cash back opportunities.

Tennis, anyone? Is there anything as classic style-wise as a crisp, white tennis skirt? I love this office-appropriate spin on the sporty number, with its pretty pleats and longer length. Fashion ace! Banana Republic pleated linen/cotton skirt, $79.99. And don’t forget you can get free shipping.



Sky high. If you’re not afraid of a little height, these adorbs platform woven-wrap wedges will elevate your style to a new level. The 4-1/2-inch heel (with a 1 1/1-inch platform) is not for the faint of heart, but I’m willing to practice my walk to don these babies to the next pool party. Julianne Hough for Sole Society 'Adrienne' wedge sandal, $54.95, Nordstrom.com. If you act now, you can get an additional 10% Cash Back on your purchase (that’s free money!!)

Ruffle some feathers. A white blouse is as much a summer standard as ice cream trucks and baseball games. I can’t wait to wear this lovely ruffle-collared blouse with fluted sleeves, well, pretty much everywhere. ASOS white blouse, $42.43, asos.com



Hat attack. Not only does a big, wide-brimmed hat add instant allure to an outfit, but it actually serves a good purpose – shading your face from the sun’s damaging rays.  And as a proud Irish gal, my skin will be grateful. Oh, and bad hair day? No one will ever know. August Accessories Metallic Ribbon Floppy Hat, $38, bloomingdales.com
