Sometimes, you just need one new little thing to make things feel fresh again. We’re not talking about splurge-worthy accessories or a completely new skincare routine, but smaller, more affordable things like a rope tote or a cheery new nail polish for your next manicure. That’s what this list is for! It’s just 100 things under $100, all of which will make your summer better. So go ahead, treat yourself! You deserve it.
If there’s one thing that always makes me feel better, it’s a new crisp shirt. So stock up on seasonal updates in breezy linen, like this Banana Republic shirt, this Everlane shirt, or this Mango shirt. If you want something a little less basic, then COS’s short sleeve ruffle blouse is ready for a sunset cocktail hour.
I’m convinced the LL Bean Boat and Tote bag is one of the greatest joys in fashion, especially with the zip top version. Choose your color (I love this electric blue), choose your monogram, and take it wherever you need to! J.Crew’s hand-knotted rope bag is perfect for beach days or filling up with fresh produce, and it comes in this beautiful sky blue as well as five other colors. Mango’s jute basket bag brings all of the European vacation vibes even if you’re just walking over to your neighbor’s house for a glass of rosé.
Less is more is especially relevant when it comes to summer beauty. I stick to a few key products instead of letting a full face melt right off in the heat. Of course, I always starts with sunscreen. If LaRoche Posay’s Antihelios Sunscreen is good enough for French It girls, it’s good enough for me! Ilia’s Super Serum skin tint and Volumizing Mascara make for a swipe-and-go makeup refresh.
