Everything in this post is $100 or less


Friday’s post was on the pricey side, so I thought I might balance things out today with some astonishingly good buys, like these spiffy windowpane-check trousers from Uniqlo.

I think I’m going to have to spring for this v-neck tee, because it’s got a nice, deep neckline and also looks (and I know this is a phrase I over-use) quite excellently slouchy.

An A-line leopard print skirt that will take you straight into fall.

A classic tote with no extraneous hardware, just how I like them.



From Universal Standard: slightly distressed black jeans with a clean and flattering cut.

This silk shirt is such a lovely shade of pale pink.

A zebra-stripe wrap skirt that would look fantastic with a white tee, just as shown.

This streamlined tunic comes in a multitude of hues, but I like this deep plum best.

I’d layer on the necklaces with this incredibly easy T-shirt dress.

A button-front corduroy skirt that feels very Seventeen magazine back-to-school issue, circa 1981.

I really dig red and yellow together, which is why this floral dress appeals.

And the poppy-bright floral on this skirt is pretty good too, and would be nice in the fall too with a big sweater and tall boots.

I’d dress this satin shirt down with jeans, or all the way up with a slim black pencil skirt.

A shirt jacket (Topshop calls them “shackets”) that will be perfect for the cooler nights soon to come.

This subtly striped skirt would be perfect for when you’re in the mood to go matchy-clashy.

A crisp Universal Standard popover that has just a hint of stretch. If I worked in an office and they manufactured in my size, I would totally own this shirt.

This pretty twist front top is that rarest of things: a brown garment that I actually really like. It’s only left in a few sizes, but it’s so pretty I included it anyway.

Another rarity: a denim skirt that does not stop at mid-thigh. And I like the bold zipper up front.

    I love everything in this post, especially the red & yellow dress. I would wear the leopard print skirt until they pried it off my dead body. Thanks for doing this post, Kim!!! 😍

    I haven’t worn brown in about thirty years, but that wispy, twisted front floral top is shouting my name. And the tee-shirt dress is pretty perfect. And the satin tunic top. (sigh)

    I am trying not to buy anything (new house!), but that little corduroy skirt also comes in brown….

    I have the Nordstrom black tee and it’s nice, a great buy for the $$. I wanted it to tuck in and blouse, or to borrom Kim’s word, wear slouchy. I ordered a bunch of sizes and kept the Small, even though I’m usually an XS or XXS. It’s cool on a hot day.

    I have those Uniqlo pants in plain black, black pinstripe, and navy and they are great. I wear them with a button down and loafers for work or with a sweatshirt or tee, leather jacket (if the weather calls for it), and sneakers for more casual outings. They are great for travel, too!
