Weekend Cool For Under $150: Men’s Edition

Lukus usually reads my posts before I publish them.  He is sort of my editor.  Lucky, I know.  Yesterday he pointed out that it’s been awhile since I wrote a men’s fashion post and he was feeling somewhat slighted.  Okay, so I made the second part up.  But, he did suggest I give my male readers (and the women who love them) a bit of attention.  And because I had so much fun on the women’s casual spring looks under $150 post (see HERE), I thought I would do the same for the males.  So, together with Lukus we scoured the internet for looks he would feel good wearing on the weekend and that would not cause a financial meltdown (on my part, not his- he’s much more calm about these things).

Weekend Cool For Under $150

I know it is Monday, but I am still basking in the glow that was Sunday.  Yesterday was a lovely day complete with a trip to the Farmers’ Market.  I love to watch the people at the markets- especially now that it is spring.  Everyone brings their own attitude and style.  By the time I finish my shopping I can’t help but want to go home and play dress up as I am newly enthused by all the cool weekend looks.  This time instead of raiding my own closet I did some online window-shopping for 3 great spring outfits, each for under $150.  Hopefully you will be equally inspired!

Booties On A Budget

I am not sure if I’ve mentioned this before, but I am significantly shorter than my husband, Lukus.  As in at least 7 inches (it depends on how tall I am claiming to be that day).  Not surprisingly I like a good shoe with a heel.  I’m especially a fan of the bootie.  It’s great with a dress, a skirt, with a legging or super skinny pant and even with a pair of shorts!  Very versatile.  Which is great for me, because my closet isn’t nearly large enough to adequately fit my wardrobe dreams.  These booties also come in a great big price range, which means while I may covet Jimmy Choo’s Faxon Mixed Material Ankle Boot (it retails for a cool $1,450- but it’s on sale for “only” $1,014.99 on Saks.com), I can still find great looking boots in my price range!

Have your doubts?  Don’t think I have the shopping chops?  Check out the great looking booties I found below.  And they are all available for less than $150.

"Sallie Suede Bootie" by Calvin Klein, currently $89.99

Trouvé 'Focus' Bootie. Available at Nordstrom's for $139.99

Aldo's "Bregon" shoe is $120.

Boutique 9 "Olita" currently $128.80 at Bloomingdale's.

The Report "Bowie" is $89.99 on Piperlime.
