Can you believe it’s already August!? It’s crazy that school is almost started and we’ll be taking my oldest to college in about a week and a half. This month’s favorites under $150 are full of easy dresses, tops, and more that are perfect for back to school, PTA meetings, and beating the summer heat. Hopefully, these styles can get us through the dog days of summer and into the back to school groove!

Throwing on a dress is the easiest way to be out the door in no time…perfect when we’re in the back to school rush. I love this dress from Banana Republic. The flutter sleeves and asymmetrical hem are really pretty and similar to a much more expensive dress I own! You can wear it with espadrilles to dress it up or sneakers for a more casual look.

This dress would be great for PTA or meetings with teachers or fa fundraising committee meeting.  I have the long sleeved version in two colors!  You’ve seen it here.  For something more casual, check out this striped wrap dress.  The smocked waist khaki dress I’m wearing in the photo is now 60% off only $55!

Another easy look is a top and jeans or shorts. This top is really lightweight. If you don’t like to show your arms, I like this top. And if you’re looking for a cute tee, this leopard print tee is perfect. I carefully curated the boutique below so that you can find anything you’re looking for to get through the last few weeks of summer! Keep scrolling to shop!

Nordstrom Beauty Discovery: Cle de Peau Concealer

Nordstrom Beauty Discovery: Cle de Peau Concealer

It’s easy to get in a routine when it comes to make up.  My need for a new concealer lead me back to an old favorite and the discovery of some new products from Cle de Peau.

For years, I used the cult favorite concealer from this fabulous brand. I discovered it as a new mom with tired eyes and dark circles. It was my go -o for years. Now as a mom of teenagers, I feel like those dark circles have returned!
