Pretty Fix: The May List

Do you subscribe to one of those personal styling monthly box services?  I can’t speak from experience because I’ve never tried one, but the feedback I’ve gotten from many of you is that often times they totally “miss the mark”.  You’ve told me what you really want is budget friendly pieces to add to your wardrobe and keep you on trend without having to ship them back if they don’t work out.

One of you brilliant readers asked me to come up with a list of five affordable items that I’d personally recommend each month.  And so the idea for the Pretty Fix was born.

The Pretty Fix is a new monthly feature at Get Your Pretty On that features my top five picks for the month that you can shop for on your own to stay in style at a price you’ll love.

Want to know the best part?  You can buy everything in this month’s fix for under $100! 

Consider me your new budget-minded personal shopper.  Here’s May’s Pretty Fix.




1.  Floppy Hat – $14.99

Fedoras are still in but the floppy hat is having it’s moment.  I just picked one up for our upcoming summer beach vacation.  The wider brim provides more sun protection.

2.  White Sundress – $30

Don’t let white scare you.  A basic white sundress will be your new go-to for summer.  You can dress it up with wedges or pair it with flip flops for a day at the beach.  The versatility is amazing.  Look with one with eyelet details to be totally on-trend.

Studs in a generous size are a no-fuss way to accessorize your summer outfits.  In coral or mint, you’ll be pairing these with everything all summer long.
