There's very little more satisfying than finding something fabulous at somewhere like H&M. You save some money that you can then put towards higher end things you'll wear forever. I've looked through all of the High Street websites to come up with these absolute GEMS for you. Let me know what you think in the comments below!
This lilac coat might be what I buy instead of the light blue one from the Nordstrom Sale that I loved until I tried it on. Plus Asos is having a 20% off sale for Labor Day when you use code: LABORDAY20. I'd love this coat with white jeans and fun driving mocs.
I'm also a big fan of these Cole Haan mules. They're a bit more expensive than some of the other things on this post but Cole Haan makes insanely comfortable shoes so if you're on your feet a lot, they're worth it (and are still just under $100). Speaking of mules, these straw ones look like a Dolce Vita pair but are from Target! And these light blue suede ones are a FAB pop of color for under $30 (and who doesn't love blue suede shoes?)
I live in ballet flats come fall and this nude pair from Mango has a gorgeous grosgrain cap toe. The black croc effect flats from H&M are a good staple too (one that I'd recommend buying two pairs of because you WILL beat them up and they're only $15).
This shell clutch is the bag I was looking for all summer and I'm so sad I only just found it. I'm definitely buying it to save for next year though, because even if the straw bag trend has passed, I still love this.
Speaking of parties, fall wedding season is fast approaching and this blue midi dress is fab and v. on trend. It's one of those pieces you could start wearing now, wear through the fall, and then bring back out once spring comes around. It would be great with a statement headband and a fun bag. If it's a daytime event, I'd also wear these fun ricrac sunglasses (perfect for keeping as a spare pair in your car
