8 Fall Staples Under $30

Side-Vent Tunic

This is a great tunic sweatshirt! It’s a thicker sweatshirt type material with slits on the side. It’s nice and long so you can wear it with your favorite leggings! Comes in lots of colors!

Terry Fleece Crewneck Sweatshirt 

Really great, basic fleece sweatshirt! I love the camo of this one, but it also comes in solid colors too!

Long-Sleeve Scoop Neck Tunic

This scoop neck top is SUPER soft and really nice quality. It is longer in the front and back with decent coverage in the back (for wearing with leggings!) It comes in 7 different colors!

Leopard T-Shirt

My fav fav fav top from Amazon right now. At first, I thought I wouldn’t like it because it’s sort of a different material almost like a rashguard. But I LOVE it. Super comfortable and instantly stylish. It’s going to transition into fall so well, too!

Oatmeal Open Cardigan

Hands down my favorite layering cardigan. It’s not too thick so doesn’t add bulk and lays PERFECT. It’s also just the perfect length, you know what I mean? Not too long. Not too short. It’s also got a slight belt cinch in the back so it’s just overall super flattering.

BONUS: Get yourself some Old Navy Luxe Swing tanks (what I’m wearing here) while you’re at it because they are the PERFECT thank to wear under cardigans.

Floral Maxi Dress

SUPER comfortable and awesome lightweight material. It’s buttoned down the front then has a knee-high slit in the front so it’s super flowy and flouncy! Fits true to size. Would be a great maternity dress – bump-friendly. I got it because of the buttons (wanted nursing-friendly) but I will say these buttons are a pain to button and unbutton. It can be done, but not ideal for babies who might be cluster feeding!

Leopard Peasant Top

This top is so flouncy! It has a ruffled peplum type of waist that’s very flattering and comfortable. Looks great tucked in or left open. Would layer great under things as well.

(Also these are the shorts I’m wearing here, my FAV jean shorts)


Abercrombie Jean Leggings

I LOVE LOVE LOVE these jeans. They really aren’t jeggings at all. They are jeans with a button, zipper, etc. But, it’s just a very stretchy jean. I loved the high-waisted pair postpartum and now have a mid-rise pair too. They wear amazing and Abercrombie jeans hold us SO well.

These are a bonus item because they aren’t “under $30” BUT they are currently on sale for $39 so snag ’em while you can!

Also, this is the ruffle top I’m wearing and it’s also under $30 and I LOVE it.
