It’s not everyday where you come across some amazing deals that are so good you want to shout it out to the world. But today is one of those days and let me tell you, these mind-blowing must haves are ones you will definitely want to check out.

For summer I wanted to find vacay worthy pieces without spending a ton of money. I happened to come across this dress that is really affordable at $16 (okay, let’s just say it, cheap)! Before you start judging, yes it’s made in China (but let’s face it, most clothes even in department stores are). But honestly, for a dress that you’ll only wear in the summer that you want to be lightweight anyway, it’s a bargain!

This dress in particular is a must-have in every color and print (25 different colors and patterns). The fabric is lightweight, I love the button details, and the pockets are an added plus! I am wearing a size small (I usually wear an XS or 0 in dresses) and it fits! The shoulder straps are adjustable and this would totally fit a XS and a S body type because of the adjustable straps and stretchy bodice. I personally love this olive color because it actually makes you look tanned. And if you have that summer glow already, this olive color deepens the tan.

The other must-have $10 item is this ever-so-chic visor! I picked this up at Target randomly and am in love with it. Sun protection is something I take very seriously and finding the right hat that looks great while also hiding your face is a daunting task. I am also picky about hats because I just don’t look great in them, plus the added inconveniences of not being able to wear your hair up, fitting my small head…shall I go on? This visor is the perfect solution because I can wear it with my hair down or up and the size is adjustable…and need I mention again that is only $10?! Definitely screams resort wear.

So these are my budget friendly must-haves for summer…until I find some other great deals to share! Trust me, you won’t be disappointed with either of these pieces.

How gorgeous is that cute dress Christine! I’m currently preparing my dresses for the upcoming beach vacay and as I don’t want to spend too much on all those garments, your inspo just comes in very handy.

I can’t believe that dress comes in 25 colors! You’re bound to find one that you like. The button detail is really cute and unique. This is such a nice summer dress that’s easy to wear and nice and breezy. I love that visor too and how you styled it. I need a wide-rim visor to keep the sun off my face!! Love and hate SoCal…

Yay, sometimes, some cheap buys could be of a great deal! And when you get the piece great in quality, that’s a win!
I love that button up style and wondering if it would suit me good too!!!

I absolutely love the look and the dress it’s a bargain. Seriously I don’t care its made in China if it cost $16, heck I’ll take it. You can wear it for one summer and give it away without feeling guilty in my opinion. I definitely will check it out and I am gone get the visor. I love it! I had my eyes on the Dior version but I can’t justify the price tag. Totaly vacay inspo look!! You look gorgeous friend!
