I share a lot of secondhand finds on here that take quite a bit of time to research, and sometimes a lot of patience and luck. I wanted to share more looks and pieces that are new and more available to everyone so you can shop the same or similar pieces. Today I'm sharing an entirely brand new look with high quality pieces that all cost me under $50! Keep scrolling!
J. Crew White Wrap Top [new, $5] Banana Republic Skinny Ankle Jeans [new, $15] Banana Republic Suede Block Heel Sandals [new, $0] Leith Three Tone Bag [new, $25]
I know I've talked about this before, but I LOVE Banana Republic jeans. I try to avoid the 100% cotton ones and look for the pairs that include spandex or another stretchy material because, well, ya know. I have jeans from BR that I've had for years and still hold their shape. I've linked the skinny ankle pair that I'm wearing above. Im between 26/27 jean and went with the 26 for these because BR tends to run on the bigger side. I picked these up through an online sale for only $15!
I love a classic ballet wrap top, so when I came across this top on 60% clearance at J. Crew I scooped it up right away! I mean for $5, how can you go wrong? I have so many colors. J. Crew is currently having another 60% off clearance sale, so I've linked wrap tops above that you can also shop!
I had my eye on this Leith bag from Nordstrom for a while, and loved the neutral classic combination of colors that would make it easy to mix and match between outfits. And as you can see from other pieces from Leith, this seems to be their style of bags. I've used this bag a number of times over the past few months and find the quality very good. Unfortunately I could not find the same bag, but I have shared a couple of other neutral and statement bags from Leith, some that are on clearance.
You probably thought the $0 for these shoes I posted above was a mistake, but believe it or not I got them completely free! As previously mentioned, I have a Banana Republic credit card that I use as much restraint with as possible to collect points and rewards to spend at Banana Republic, Gap, Old Navy, and Athleta. For this particular purchase, I had a $15 reward. With clearance discounts, that was enough to let me bring these shoes home for nothing else! There aren't many sizes left in these shoes on the BR website, but I've linked a few other cute block heel sandals above.
If you're interested in hearing more about my experience with store credit cards, you can read that blog post HERE.
A few weeks in and I LOVE this watch band. It looks so much like the Hermes watch band, but is a very small fraction of the price! I've linked that below in case you are looking to upgrade your own band, it comes in a variety of colors and is only $25 with free shipping!
Thanks so much for reading! You can shop any of the items above by just clicking the picture which will take you straight to the store's website. I have also updated the blog's "shop my looks" page above that is linked directly to my liketoknowit page that makes it super easy to navigate to shop the outfits I share!
