It’s that time of year again. I’m not even going to say it. I will say, however, that we’re getting dangerously close to the point where it no longer makes sense to be carrying around tiny, brightly colored messenger bags and dainty clutches. No, my friends, we are officially within reach of carry-all hour. It’s time to start singing the funeral dirge for your favorite summertime accessories, but fear not — at least one of these 15 fall-ready totes and satchels is bound to suit your fancy and ease the pain. Whether your budget is $100, $200, or $300, we’ve got some choices for you…

Screw convention: Just because summer’s coming to an end doesn’t mean that we should give up our summery, fresh looks. That’s why we’re really feeling floral jeans and trousers this fall — they bring a hint of spring and summer color to colder climes. We found 10 pairs of pants under $100 — most are actually even under $50 — so that you can bring a bit of warm weather to your winter wardrobe.
You guys, I simply cannot stay silent for a moment longer. The cost of swimwear is too damn high! It’s. Too. Damn. High. I’m going to Mexico in a month so I’ve been on the hunt for a new bikini to bring with me and wear basically 24/7 while I’m there. But I am seriously appalled by how much swimwear designers are charging for these scant pieces of fabric. Who wants to spend $200 on something that is going to spend the majority of its time soaking in chlorine or salt water, chafing against sand, and fading in the sun? Who wants to spend $200 on something that is, for most of us, sort of depressing to shop for because it illuminates our unfair body image issues? NOT ME. AND NOT YOU. That’s why I am taking it upon myself to track down the best swimsuits in a variety of styles under $75, that way you still have money to spend on, you know, getting to the beach(or pool or lake or swimming hole) in the first place.
First up: bandeaus! This is my ideal bikini style because I really don’t like tanlines on my shoulders or chest — all of these bandeau tops (with matching/coordinating bottoms) come with a strap/straps that you can either untie or remove, that way you can still feel secure when you’re running through the waves.

ASOS has one of the most extensive selections of any online retailer, which is great, but it can also a bit daunting. To help you sort through the infinite options, we picked 10 of our favorite bright, springy pieces for 50 bucks or less. Click through to check ‘em out!
I stumbled upon the gem of a shopping site, ROMWE, when I was reading one of my favorite style blogs, StylePantry. Owner and editor Folake Huntoon wore an amazing leopard-print blouse in one of her “My Style” posts, and I had to have it. Fortunately for me, Folake revealed that the shirt was available on ROMWE, and I went searching on the site for it. Unfortunately for me, it wasn’t for sale anymore. I did, however, find a few similar leopard-print blouses and many more lust-worthy items. ROMWE does street fashion quite well and at affordable prices. The selection is huge! And the site even lets shoppers know how many units of a garment are still available, and what the new items will be. Check out some of my favorite pieces from ROMWE, and you’ll become a fan too!
