5 Under $50

I'm in a constant battle between neutral and color. I love understated pieces but appreciate a pop of pink from time to time. As my style has evolved over the years, I can definitely say that I'm a Plain Jane at heart who doesn't mind wearing this pin to give any outfit a level-up. But price is a very important factor especially for me. I've always been notorious at scoring ridiculously cheap deals and only investing in key pieces. I'd spend $8 on jeans, $10 for a top and get a statement piece for more wow factor instead. This trick has helped me tremendously over time! By buying low key outfits and home essentials, I can look for smaller pieces with larger impact. So here are a few items I'd recommend:5 Under $50 | Femme & Fortune Canvas Backpack from Baggu; Scribble Floral Pillow from Kate Spade Saturday; Pink Accordion Wallet from Kate Spade Saturday; Cork Case for iPhone 5 from JCrew; Polka Dot Salt & Pepper Shakers from Poketo
