Since I have a lot of you asking for affordable staples, I thought I would share my favorites from the J. Crew Factory sale. These sales don’t last long, so I would get on it if I were you! I stock up during these sales on shorts, t-shirts, and any fall or winter staples (because those are 50% off of the SALE price = insanely cheap.)

I am past the “short shorts” phase in my life and swear by the 4″ or  5″ shorts. ($15 – $25)scalloped shorts | chambray shorts | chino shorts

If those are too short for you, they have the amazing 7″ shorts (or even 10′ shorts) which are SUPER cute.

These lightweight t-shirts are a staple all summer long because they’re so comfortable and machine washable. Also, they’re super affordable! ($9.95 – $12.95) studio t-shirt | striped shirt | tissue t (super thin!)

They also have different necklines (v-necks and scoop necks) but I stick with the crew neck t’s because I’m always bending over to pick up Alexander and I need the higher necks for modesty purposes.

There are lots of other cute sale options, but these are absolute staples in my wardrobe and the prices can’t be beat!
