try on haul
Hello, and happy hump day friends! This post is a fun one, and a little different from what I normally do here on Lonestar Southern because today, I’m sharing five summer pieces I’m loving that are all under $100. In fact, most are under $50! Scroll below for all of the details, including sizing info and color options, and be sure to stick around to the end of the post for a fun announcement!
After including this romper in my recent Latest & Greatest roundup, I knew I needed to add it to my closet! It is just as darling in person. I love how loose and flowy the shorts fit, and the eyelet detailing adds the sweetest touch of southern charm. I will say that this romper is fairly see-through as the material is so light. I wore this strapless bra and these underneath, however, and the problem was solved! Wearing a size 4 US. (The Topshop brand runs a bit smile, so I always size up one from my usual size!)
TWO // Ruffle Hem Top
I initially fell in love with this blouse for the rosy pink color, but once I tried it on I quickly became infatuated with the silhouette! It is so flattering, fun and feminine. I also love that this is the perfect summer-to-fall transition top! It comes in five other colors, including a gorgeous hunter green and a bright, hot pink, so I’ll definitely be adding a few more to my closet. With 139 four-star reviews, it’s clear I’m not the only one crushing on this cutie! Wearing a size XS.
THREE // Bell Sleeve Bow Dress
Between the bell sleeves and the bow back, what’s not to love about this precious sundress? I picked it up as an easy throw-on during these crazy hot days of summer, and can’t wait to pack it up for my family’s beach trip in just a couple of weeks! Throw on with sandals for a casual, every-day look or dress up with wedges and fun statement earrings for a date night out or dinner with friends! This dress is also available in navy, which will be perfect for tailgating season. Wearing a size XS. (Keep in mind the cut is a bit wide.)
Since I’m smitten with gingham this summer, I couldn’t scoop up this off the shoulder set fast enough! The tie sleeves add such a sweet touch, don’t you think? I love that each of these pieces are so well-priced, and look darling styled separately! Just think how cute white jeans and sandals would look with the top, and an easy white tee with pair with the shorts. Keep in mind, there’s a pretty high key hole on the side of the shorts! I’m actually taking them to the tailor to get sewn up (since they’re pretty high) but still 100% recommend them. I also wanted to point out that this set is available in regular, petite, tall and curve versions! Wearing size US 4 regular in both the top and shorts.
FIVE // Neon Tassel Embroidered Top
The second I saw the colors on this smocked top, I was sold. Nothing like sporting neons in the summertime! While I’ve paired it with jeans above, this top also looks so cute with a pair of shorts and sandals. One thing I particularly love about the design is that the pink straps are fastened together above the shoulder. Instead of having to tie both sides at the same length and worrying about them coming undone, all you have to do is tie the bow! Wearing a size US 4.
Alright friends… who is ready for the fun announcement? I wanted y’all to be the first to know that I’ll be hosting a try-on haul on my Instagram Story later today! You’ll find these five pieces featured (incase you want to see how they look and move in real-time) along with tons of other cute finds. Seriously, I think this may be my biggest yet! I’ll also be including details on a fun giveaway, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled! Don’t forget, you can always turn on post notifications to be alerted when I post a new Instagram! Just go to my Instagram profile, then click the three dots at the top righthand corner. You’ll see the “Turn on Post Notifications” options at the end!
Finally… don’t forget that the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 early access starts tomorrow for Nordstrom card holders! (See this post for all of the details.) I’ll have an extensive roundup of the very best, must-have pieces right here, so be sure to check it out before shopping!
Love from Texas,
