TGIF!!  This has been a crazy week but then again, it is full on May Crazies as I call it.  We have a birthday/graduation party tonight for my oldest daughter and then graduation next weekend so it won’t slow down for a while.  I’m sure you are the same!  Today’s post is a reader favorite and mine too: May Favorites Under $150.

As always, these pieces range from $150 to WAY under $150.  I’ve included a few beauty products including my favorite self-tanner.  It smells amazing and is so easy to use a 10-year-old can use it…and mine did one night! Ha!

I’ve included my new favorite white jeans (seen here) that are now on sale so they are under $40!  This perfect shirtdress that is now 30% off.  J.Crew is having a great sale.  Use code HISUMMER.  I’ve included a lot of great pieces from them in the boutique below.

Gathering these items has inspired me to refresh my summer wardrobe with nice quality but very affordable pieces.  I’d love to know your favorites!  You can see the full Favorites Under $150 here.

I also want to announce that Gina G. is the winner of the Colleen Rothschild Giveaway! I’ve sent you an email so be on the look out!  Don’t forget the Colleen Rothschild Friends and Family Sale offering 25% off!

Wanderlust Wednesday: What I Wore in Cape Town and the Cape Winelands

We are back from our amazing adventure in South Africa with Natural World Safaris and I can’t wait to share all the details.  Because it takes a while to write the posts on each destination, and because I always get a lot of questions, I’m starting with what I wore in Cape Town and the Cape Winelands first.  I get asked about Scott’s clothes a lot so I’ve linked as much of his as possible, too.
