15 Summer Style Must Haves Under $200 (+ $1,000 Nordstrom GIVEAWAY!)

There's always all sorts of new summer arrivals in every store; lots of sales, trendy finds and more at so many different price points... Shopping can get overwhelming! Seriously! ;) Whether you're shopping for an upcoming trip or want to upgrade your summer wardrobe, these 15 style finds are all under $200 and are things you'll love - trust me!

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12 / 13 / 14 / 15

1. Pink Pom Pom Clutch: this cute pom pom clutch is $54 and one you'll want to take on every trip, every beach day and every event! It's the cutest and adds such a fun pop of color to a summer look.

2. Pink & Gold Disk Earrings: PSA, these are $12!!! They are so cute and I'm hoping they're as lightweight as they look (UPS, where are you with my cute earrings?! Hah!) because they have the potential to be the summer statement earrings we all need!

3. Striped Hair Bow: the cutest hair bow I ever did see! Perfect to pull your hair back with for a day at the beach or even dress up a dinner/evening look. And if nothing else, just a super cute striped bow to accessorize with. ;)

4. White Eyelet Romper: the best part about a romper like this is it's great for hot weather, and you can wear it casually or dressed up with heels/wedges. This white eyelet/lace screams summer!

5. Tory Burch Miller Sandals: I know we all are familiar with the Tory Burch Miller line, but I saw this new sage color and fell in love! I recently got the light blue/seafoam shade and I live in these during the summer. They're actually comfortable enough to walk in too, so they're great to have when you travel or just have a busy day where you want to look cute and a little more dressed up.

6. Distressed Denim Shorts: hands down my favorite denim shorts! They're high waisted and fit so well - they're stretchy, not your typical annoying pair of denim and are $34! AE has lots of washes and styles, but this distressed pair is perfect for everyday wear and matches everything!

7. Turquoise Beaded Stud Earrings: BaubleBar just sent these over and I am SO obsessed with them!! They're $9.99, also come in a deep coral/red and are sooo lightweight! I always mention how sensitive my ears are - I love statement earrings (especially in the summer) but my ears just can't handle heavy earrings for a long period of time. These make a statement without the hurt and you'll forget you have them on, that's how good they are! And for $9.99, you can't beat it!

8. Blush Tortoise Shell Sunnies: I love how different these are - they're circular without being too round (if that isn't necessarily your thing - trust me, I feel you!) and the shape of sunnies is so important to consider for your face shape!

9. Beaded Slide Sandals: these were one of those late night impulse buys... But one of the best EVER! They are absolutely stunning and so different. Slide sandals are so easy to wear, mix and match outfits with and most importantly - easy to pack!

10. Straw Rainbow Beach Tote: this is a bit of a splurge, but if you can justify it it's a beach tote that you'll use ALL summer long, and not just for beach days!

11. Faux Leather Clutch/Crossbody: coming in at just under $50, this Chloe look-alike is the perfect summer bag! There's four other colors and they're all beautiful - it's almost too hard to pick one! It can be worn as a clutch or crossbody - so use it during the day and then again at night with a dressier look for dinner, on vacation, etc.

12. 'Beach Bum' Pullover: doesn't get much cuter than this! A cozy pullover is a beach trip essential!

13. Gold Seashell Earrings: I never knew I needed a pair of seashell earrings until I saw these! ;)

14. Deep Coral High Waisted Swimsuit: we all need a couple of bathing suits that we love to wear each season - finding something you love and are comfortable in is anything but easy, I know! This bikini is high waisted (love that look!) and the bow detailing is so cute! The style of the top is different than your typical bikini top too - something different to try!

P.S., if you need a great swimsuit this season - I rounded up some of the best buys (trendy picks and swimsuits that are great for all body types!) at three different budget price points - read it HERE!

15. Platform Wedge Sandals: these have to be my very favorite wedges I've ever, ever owned. I got them a couple of months ago and stared at them every day, eagerly awaiting summer so I could wear them!! I bought them thinking maybe I'd like them, maybe I wouldn't - and they're now my favorite shoe. EVER. They're so comfortable which I most definitely did not expect and the heel height is perfect. They look higher in the website images, but they're perfect even if you're tall and you can wear them with a casual summer day look or at night for a dressed up look (that seems to be the theme here... Lol!)

On to the giveaway!! As you've likely heard, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is quickly approaching - it's one of the biggest sales all year and there's always a TON of really amazing deals and steals on both summer finds and early fall picks. Best of luck!! :)
