It’s March 2nd which means weather and special occasions start to warm up. With Easter, weddings and Mother’s Day coming up it’s a great time to stock up on some pretty dresses and accessories to be ready for the occasion.
While my favorites tend to be Nordstrom and Kendra Scott I know that not everyone is looking to spend several hundreds on an outfit. Today I wanted to share with you options for dresses and accessories that fit under the $160 price tag (all but one are under $150) and under $50.
First though I wanted to show you my spring dress pick! I love Eliza J Dresses at Nordstrom because they just tend to fit me really well. Many have great prints and flow to them. I would say that 80% of my special occasion dresses are Eliza J!

Here I am sporting my beautiful Gucci Bag that I got for my 40th birthday. When investing in a luxury bag like this I always like to get something I see myself wearing with a ton of outfits. This one with the tan color is so versatile that it can be easily dressed up or down. It’s also a good size and hold quite a bit.
The shoes I’m wearing are a Michael Kors 3″ sandal from last year in light blush patent. I tried on a TON of strappy sandals and these were by far the most comfortable. This year they have a slightly different ankle strap but come in the same color and even a beautiful pink grapefruit.
Now I can understand that not everyone is in the market for a luxury handbag so I wanted to also show you this Sole Society Destin Crossbody bag. I got mine in powder blush last year and I am so excited that they brought it back along with tons of new colors. It holds quite a bit of items and has a removable crossbody strap.
My final spring touches always include some Kendra Scott jewelry. Recently I was overjoyed to be added to their influencer team which allows me to select some new pieces each season to share with you. These new Spring Macrame Danielle Earrings were my first pick! I love the macrame detailing making them feminine and the blush wood color looks great with so many spring items.
Here are more of my picks for spring dresses and accessories. Most are from Nordstrom since I love their free ship/ free return policy. Also they have even faster shipping options like 2 day and express if you need a dress or shoes quickly! All the options below are under $150 (except for one dress but it was too pretty to not include).
Dresses (L to R) V-Neck Jersey Dress | Eliza J Floral Maxi Dress (alternative print)| Ruffle Chiffon Maxi Dress | Eliza J Midi Dress (plus size) | Red Floral Tie Waist Dress | Faux Wrap Midi Dress
Shoes (L to R) Sam Edelman Hot Pink Sandal | Michael Kors Ava Strappy Sandal | Hazel Limited Edition Pastel Pump | Vince Camuto Ankle Strap Sandal
Bags (L to R) Sole Society Destin Messenger Bag | Sole Society Destin Crossbody Bag | Nordstrom Woven Bag
Jewelry (L to R) Kendra Scott Danielle Earrings c/o | Abalone Ring | Kendra Scott Watercolor Illusion Necklace | Kendra Scott Fallyn Cuff Bracelet c/o
Now I know not everyone has the budget for $150 so I scoured to find some GREAT options all under $50! These are all from Walmart so they also have fast shipping options with free 2 day ship with $35+ purchase. I know it’s been awhile since I’ve shown any Walmart options but several of my blogger friends kept showing these cute dresses they were finding there and I figured I would give it another shot.
Here are some tips shopping at Walmart.com, when you go to a section like dresses go down and filter retailer to Walmart.com. A lot like Amazon their website has a ton of 3rd party sellers and not always will those items be included in the 2 day ship option. Then I stick to a couple brands that I have had success in the past with their quality like Time & Tru, Scoop and familiar brands like Steve Madden.
The downfall I have had with Walmart in the past is that CUTE new arrivals sell out fast! So if there is a dress or shoe you love it’s worth grabbing to try. I have been impressed also with their easy free returns to the store and shipping back. I have a couple of these dresses on the way to try out myself so stayed tuned for some try-on sessions.
