Weekending + A Few Favorites Under $50

This post may contain affiliate links. Purchasing through them help support this website.

Happy Monday.  I know I feel like a broken record when I say this but honestly the weekends really go by way too fast right?  So I realized I snapped most of the weekend (@meetatthebarre) and was having way too much fun to bust out my big camera. Therefore, here are a few snaps of the weekend.  Linking up with B.



Also, instead of working, I’ve been dreaming of cooler temps and Fall trends.  I can’t wait to start incorporating some of these pieces into my wardrobe.  Plus, they are all under 50 so they are absolutely budget friendly!  How amazing is this purse? It looks just like the Chloe one for what the tax on that purse would be.  I am obsessed with this polka dot shopping tote.  I have this delicate bracelet and it adds a nice touch of sparkle without a lot of bulk.  These dark skinnies are perfect for the Fall especially at this price point.  I just ordered these ripped black jeans and cannot wait for them to arrive.  Grab them before they sell out because they are guaranteed to quickly!


The rest of my weekend was spent watching Fixer Upper.  Seriously y’all have you seen that show?  It is so addicting but also depressing.  I think we need to move to Waco, Tx.  The price of houses there are insanely affordable!  I also really want to hang out with Chip and Joanna.  I hope y’all had a great weekend and I wanted to let you know my instagram name finally matches up with all the others.  Make sure to follow me @meetatthebarre on instagram!  xoxoxoxo

    Chip and Joanna are the cutestest couple, love them, their faith and their outlook on life. Prices of homes are INSANE where I live and we don’t want to be in a town home so we’ve been looking at other places. Things are hopefully starting to line up which I’m super excited about, woohoo! Have a great Monday!

    It looked like you guys had a great time this weekend – staying out past midnight and everything and Gary got a text for Mark and he’s like I can’t wait to hang out with them either LOL! I love that plaid dress – so perfect with booties and that red lip!! Have a great Monday!! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

    some of those home shows make me want to move where ever they’re shooting just because the housing prices are so damn cheap!!

    Your weekend looked like so much fun! Fixer Upper miiight just be the best show on television right now…I’m super obsessed with it too! That cross body is perfect!! Off to check out those distressed boyfriend jeans! Love love love.

    Obsessed with Fixer Upper! Chip and Joanna could do any house of mine. Love that Asos kimono dress!

  7. August 24, 2015 / 8:14 AM

    There’s no way I could pull of the plaid dress, but I love it!!

    I love watching the HGTV channel during the week. Or any day of the week really. Fixer Upper is good, but that show along with the rest of them just make me want a new house haha. I agree with you that it’s kind of depressing!!! Anyways… your picks are all fab. Thanks for sharing lady and I hope that you have a great day today!! :-)

    How gorgeous are those flowers?! And loving that striped tee from your picks! Loved watching your weekend through your snaps, cheers to a fabulous week gurlie <3

    I love that scarf. It’ll probably be awhile before it’s scarf season here, but I am almost ready to bundle up a little.

  12. August 24, 2015 / 9:35 AM

    Oh I love those leopard sneakers. I so need to go to Forever 21 and soon. I’m so excited for scarf season, I cannot wait to start breaking them out. I love HGTV, I could spend hours watching that channel.

  13. August 24, 2015 / 9:37 AM

    I LOVE Fixer Upper and I have the same thoughts about moving to Waco Texas lol. I couldn’t even rent a garage here in Washington DC for the amount of money these people are spending on their homes. ugh. My little 1200 sqft condo cost more than the 5 bedroom homes they are buying on that show!

    I looove those Nadri bracelets! They are one of the few brands that actually fit my super tiny wrists! And so so so happy those black jeans are back in my size – ordering now!

  15. August 24, 2015 / 10:00 AM

    First of all, those flowers are gorgeous!! And I love this fall round-up. I’ve had fall on my mind now for a couple of weeks and I’m so excited for it to get here! Love the marble phone case and that Chloe look-a-like bag is on point! Happy Monday!

    Love the second forever 21 piece!! Total love! Also all striped everything!

  17. August 24, 2015 / 10:02 AM

    Do you know why the home prices in Waco are affordable?!?! Because that “city” is an absolute sh**hole! The show makes it look adorable. The reality is that it’s rundown and lacks any industry for living-wage work. I was so shocked when I spent the day there! Anyway, YES to cooler temps! It was about 65-70 degrees up in Minneapolis this weekend and all I wore was jeans and cardi’s and ohemgee am I ready for it here! Alas, I’ll have to wait until the end of Oct – early Nov. Boo.

  18. August 24, 2015 / 10:53 AM

    Holy cow. I love that blue dress at the top and that striped shirt. I’m all about some stripes!

  19. August 24, 2015 / 12:47 PM

    Fixer Upper = so addicting. Also makes me feel like I could turn a dump into a palace (falsely!) You guys had such a fun weekend, I love following along on Snapchat, you crack me up!! How did I not know there was a dress version of the Lush top?!?!?!?!

  20. August 24, 2015 / 1:04 PM

    i have been looking for the perfect marble phone case- how did you know?!

  21. August 24, 2015 / 1:16 PM

    Amazing shopping picks as always – that scarf and striped tunic are calling my name. Fixer Upper is my favorite show, I could watch it for hours!

  22. August 24, 2015 / 2:12 PM

    I have been binge watching Fixer Upper like it is my job. Seriously I want to them to come and redo my whole house like now! They seem like such a fun and down to earth couple and I would love to hang out with them ha!
    I really love those black ripped skinnies but because I am so short the rips always end up closer to my ankles and I have yet to find a decent pair.

  23. August 24, 2015 / 2:23 PM

    I finally hopped aboard the snapchat train this weekend. I think I am still learning how to use it. but whatever. I am old lady status over here anyways! I am loving your fall picks!! I for one have been ready for cooler temps since like mid-july! Hope you have a great week!

  24. August 24, 2015 / 2:40 PM

    how adorable is that polka dot shopping tote! i want. and um, yes. totally moving to Waco with you! houses are somewhat cheap here, but not as cheap as there! plus, chip and joanna haha.

  25. August 24, 2015 / 3:36 PM

    Your snaps looked like you were having tons of fun! Ahh loving your Fall picks. Those black ripped jeans are just screaming to be paired with a big chunky scarf!!! Fixer upper is my jam, love Chip & Joanna and totally want to move to Waco, have them find and redesign a house and then hang out at their awesome farmhouse!

  26. August 24, 2015 / 3:38 PM

    Fun finds! Love that phone case

  27. August 24, 2015 / 5:19 PM

    I cannot wait for cooler weather! Since our rainy season has been bring nice weather most days instead of the typical humidity, I’ve got my fingers crossed for an early Fall. A girl can hope, right?

    Seriously DYING over the black ripped skinnies, leopard print shoes and black crossbody bag! I am with you on dreaming of Fall, the weather man said it was getting cooler in Bama this week {80s during the day, 60s at night} and it’s sent me into Fall mode hard. Keep posting things I need to buy for Fall/Winter haha!

    Those leather leggings are everything! Not sure I could rock them but holy cow I’d love to try. Obsessed with Fixer Upper, our tv stays on HGTV

  31. August 25, 2015 / 10:17 AM

    I love your snaps, they made me realize I am in desperate need of a social night out. (; haha
