Best Affordable Summer Fashion Finds

0 comment

Hey there! Forty-something, average-sized mom/bonus mom of six here! I follow (and LOVE) so many fashion blogs from amazing, beautiful women size 0-2/XS but I found there are not a lot of them out there similar to my size. Now, I have made it my passion to use my deal-finding skills to find fashion for those of us that are “Average”…even though I am far from average in many other ways! Lol

Each week I am excited to bring you my list of affordable and amazing fashion finds!!

Are you like me and love to see that package at your door? Do you love a good fashion find at an amazing price? I am a HUGE fan of staying on trend while not blowing the budget. Here are some of my favorite affordable spring fashion finds I hunted down this week!

Round Woven Handbag // Bow Flip Flops // High Waist Bikini // Faux Leather Tote // Midi Denim Shorts // Drawstring Casual Shorts  // One Shoulder One-Piece // Black Jersey Dress (similar) // Chiffon Jumper // Halter Maxi // Wedge Sandals

The Details!

The round woven crossbody handbag is a darling spring/summer staple piece for your wardrobe. Perfect to pair with any casual outfit!

These embellished bow flip flops are PERFECT for the pool and casual summer styles. I am so in love with this feminine style.

I own and love this bikini! I sized up one size and the top has extra room for my 34B chest. The high waist is surprisingly flattering!

Linen pants are great to pair with these for the pool.

If you are more comfortable in a one-piece, I found this amazing style this week. The ruching in the middle is great to hide the tummy area and the one shoulder ruffle is so unique!


I also own this large leather tote and carry it everywhere. It’s normally my carry-on for trips because it fits my crossbody, computer, chargers, iPad and all other airplane necessities. Highly recommend!


These shorts…these shorts…I cannot say enough about the AE midi distressed shorts! They have a great inseam to cover a bit more cellulite yet short enough that my short legs aren’t stumpy looking. Then there’s the stretch…I have thicker thighs and the stretch in these is fantastic! I’m 5’4″ and normally wear a 6 but I ordered up one size for a looser look. // You can also try out these casual drawstring shorts with a similar inseam and great quality for the price!


We just came back from a quick four-day getaway to Phoenix. We hiked for two days straight so my feet were telling me to stay away from the espadrille heels I packed. Sam Edelman sandals to the rescue! 

I wore this adorable hunter green jumper to dinner one night. So many compliments…but little did they know it was less than $25! Fit is true to size (I wear a medium/6 and there was a little extra room in medium)

Last but DEFINITELY not least is this adorable new halter maxi style from a quality Amazon vendor! So many different patterns, but my favorite was the bright green with polka dots. So cute!



If you like my style and consider yourself an “Average” size, be sure to follow me on my Facebook page so you can see each item I order and how it fits!
