With everything going on in the world right now, I welcome and embrace any bit of joy I can. So when I heard that the Fwrd summer sale had started, I was more than happy to take a mental break to peruse all the stylish discounted finds on the site. This year more than ever, I am doing my best to be more budget-conscious, and this massive sale did not disappoint, as there are so many pieces under $200.

The amazing selection of denim, elevated basics, cool tops, and chic dresses caught my eye the most. There are so many stylish options that are perfect for spring and summer. Scroll on to shop 30 of my top picks from the sale before they sell out. I made sure to include a little something for every personal style.
