I’m back from my weekender on the Eastern Shore with Dex feeling refreshed and ready to carpe the diem (seize the carpe). On Saturday night, Dex and I went to the Stars Restaurant at the Inn at Perry Cabin for dinner, which is located in St. Michael’s. For those of you that may not be from DC or Maryland, the Inn at Perry Cabin is stunning and a good portion of the movie Wedding Crashers was filmed there. (Think: “The painting was a gift, Todd.”)

To dinner, I wore a this LIKELY dress that I’m low-key obsessed with. The cut and shape are making it my new favorite desk-to-drinks option. (Here, we see it shining in the “drinks” department.) The dress color is perfect for spring. It’s technically called “Twilight Mist,” but I’m calling it lilac because that’s extra, even for me. I got the dress from Bloomingdales for $168, but because I love it so much I just ordered it again in a “English Manor.” I got smart this time though and snagged it on sale at Neiman Marcus for only $100. Bloomies has way more color/size options, but NM is obviously cheaper – so whichever works for you! For reference, I’m wearing a size 4. I sized up after reading the reviews and am so happy I did! It definitely runs small.

To stay warm, I also have on this oversized duster coat from Missguided. I’m wearing the nude color, but, again, I fell in love and stocked up on a variety colors. The fit is just too good. Plus, each duster is only $34 (!) and Missguided frequently runs large discounts. As I write this, everything on the site is 50% off with the code: gobabe.

The CUTEST Swimsuits For Under $50

The CUTEST Swimsuits For Under $50

Finally the weather is starting to warm up (hallelujah!) and I can’t help but think about summertime and the ocean. Increasingly, I’m finding myself wandering over to the swimsuit section. Every year, almost without fail, I have the same reaction:

$250 for a bathing suit? You have got to be kidding me!

Are they getting more expensive over the years or do I just suffer from some sort of seasonal pricing amnesia? Don’t get me wrong, I will splurge every now and then, but I can’t help but ask myself: “Why I am paying the same price as a dress for less fabric?” In terms of cost per square inch of coverage, the ratio of a bathing suit is outrageous. (Side note – can we talk about how it’s a straight up crime that most of the time we have to pay for the top AND bottom of a bikini set? Someone needs to be held accountable for this.)

So I decided to search the internet for cutest, most affordable swimsuits for under $50. Here’s what I found:
