Theboxqueen’s Weekly Finds all under $100 is back. I share my favorite finds here and starting this week, I will follow my discoveries with an outfit I styled out of my own closet. I will also add my usual little style tips and suggestions. The rule is each item used will be under $100 as well!
Most of these pieces are great brands on sale; who doesn’t love finding their favorites at great deals? I sure do. In my closet there are pieces from stores at all different price points from luxury brands to pieces from juniors sections. I truly believe, how you put together the pieces you own, and having a vision for the outfits you want to create, is the most important part of finding your style voice.
The blazer is the same of mine (shown below) in pink. I love the casualness of #11, the Antropologie tee, I would style this top in a full skirt with Mary Jane pumps. The heart locket, is beyond cool and would work as the main statement accessory as well as with different styles of delicate necklaces for a layered look. I have the Nars lip color and the nail polish and love both of them for some color impact. They are also high in quality and wear long.
Which pieces are your favorites?

Sundays are our brunch days. We usually meet our good friends at one of our few favorite breakfast spots, have a delicious meal full of laughs ( and sometimes whines when the kids protest eating smt. or are ready to go out and run free) , catch up over lots of warm conversation, and of course with combined four kids have our share of mishaps. ( experiments done with salt and sugar anyone) 🙂 It’s our family’s Sunday ritual. The kids look forward to it and it’s something I hope they will remember as our family tradition. (and maybe continue with their families)
What are some of your family traditions?
I dress according to what I feel like the morning of the brunch, like I always do for anyday. Fashion is such a powerful self expression for me that I always follow my instincts every time I go in front of my closet to pick out the day’s outfits. This past Sunday, I wanted to dress stylishly sophisticated, with a cool laid-back vibe mixed in. As in theboxqueen’s under $100 true fashion, all the pieces I used are under the $100 mark.
I bought this blazer when I ran into my favorite polka dot shirt at Macys. ( for new readers you can find my polka dot tee here). I was in a polka dot frame of mind that day, and when I saw this candy colored blazer ( different colors available) with white/navy polka dot lining, I couldn’t let it go. It is such a versatile piece that makes any outfit instantly adorable! I bought the leggings from Zara during my Istanbul trip, Zara is huge there. The tank is from Nordstrom Rack purchased last year.
Style Tip: If you want to multitask your blazers and make them less serious you have options as always with styling. You can either find a blazer similar to this one with some whimsy like the polka dot lining and use it sleeves rolled up or down. You can also match your blazer with a laid back tank like I did here, to instantly add some coolness to your classy look.
I was at DSW the other day and was so happy to see this beautiful clutch 50% off! (very similar one here same brand– different colors) Score! 🙂
Style Tip: Although clutches are known to be ideal for for more dressy, evening looks; you can always break the rules and use them during the day. For them to be more functional during the day, make sure to find one that’s good in size ( like the one I scored from DSW- just can’t get over the great deal I found haha) to carry your essentials. I couldn’t believe it when I fit my phone, credit card holder, some make-up and my daughter’s tiny sock monkey ( yes seriously 🙂 in this one and there was still room for more.
My shoes are Boutique 9 from Piperlime and sold out now. Here are two similar ones I love. Sole Society Jenn and this Guess one on sale.
All my layered necklaces are from Jewelmint but the horseshoe one. That is from my Popsugar March box. I gave the horseshoe wish necklace to my nine year old, who rides and loves horses, and borrowed it from her as it goes great with the others. The arrow two finger Erin Fetherston ring is also from Jewelmint.
Style Tip: To make a blazer more playful I love mixing and matching various necklaces. Here I started off with the longest necklace as my anchoring statement piece here and added in various metals and sizes to make it all look fluid and interesting.
Hope you liked my choices! <3 What are your favorite finds under $100? Do you also like to mix high and low priced pieces together like I do? Where do you find your best deals? I can’t wait to hear what you think!
