Budget-Friendly Buy: H&M Sandals to Scoop Up for Under $40

When it comes to the ideal summer sandal, comfort is key. I'm a fan of a neutral sandal that doesn't have any ties around the ankle. One of my favorite brands is Ancient Greek Sandals because they have so many pretty natural colors and styles. Unfortunately, they're not very budget-friendly.So when it comes to trying out bright colors and new trends, I love H&M sandals. They won't break the bank and are always on trend so you don't feel guilty for buying more than one pair.Check out the latest sandals I'm eyeing below - I just ordered the red bow ones - and start shopping before they're gone!

Like This? Get That: Alexandre Birman Clarita Sandals

One of the hottest shoe trends among celebrities has been these Alexandre Birman Clarita sandals with the signature bow embellishment. The bow near the toes adds a beautiful feminine touch. I love that you can tie another bow around your ankle or tie a simple knot.Ann Taylor has a similar style for $138 that comes in a range of colors from a pinkish nude or bright red to cobalt blue or elegant black. They're a great way to try this trendy shoe without breaking the bank.

Fab Friday Find: J.Crew Ribbon Belt

Years ago, I bought a dress that came with a navy satin ribbon belt. I can't tell you how many times I've pulled out that belt to make a dress more flattering or to liven up a look. When I saw this J.Crew ribbon belt, I knew that it would have the same longevity in my closet.You can grab this pink one online, but there was also a beautiful merlot and a satin chartreuse. The chartreuse is still available here, but the merlot is sold out. This is definitely a party-ready accessory and with J.Crew's frequent promotions, the price makes it a perfect gift for a friend (or yourself).
