Ahh, Labor Day Weekend. The “unofficial” end of summer and the start of a new school year. Retailers are taking advantage of the holiday weekend and giving us some pretty awesome sales—but there’s lots to choose from and at some point it just gets overwhelming. And I know you have a BBQ you want to go to instead of spending time searching for the best deals. So to save you time, here are my top 5 picks from this weekend’s sales. In no particular order, these are five of my all-time favorite, most-worn pieces. (And a few other deals that were too good not to mention.)
1. A Portofino Shirt
I’ve been a big fan of these for years. They fit well, wash well, don’t wrinkle, are nursing-friendly, can easily be tucked in and go with everything from ripped denim to black pencil skirts. They come in a ton of colors and patterns that are updated all the time. This is hands-down one of my favorite items in my closet and easily the most versatile. (And they’re all 40% off.)
2. These Faux Leather Leggings
I love me some faux leather leggings. My favorite thing about this pair is that they aren’t super shiny or super tight. They can easily be worn as pants without feeling like you’re over-exposed. I bought them during the anniversary sale and they’re now on sale for even less. Here’s a few ways I’m wearing them:BASE UNIFORM: leggings – S | white tee | leopard print heels – also 40% off!
Top Left: long cardigan – not on sale, but available in lots of colors
Top Right: beige cardigan – 40% off!
3. These Bracelets
I’m obsessed with Victoria Emerson’s bracelets. I want to buy another one of these every time they have a site-wide sale. This weekend everything is 40% off (no code needed) and I’m thinking about snagging a few for Christmas gifts. For myself. Just kidding. (But not really.)
4. This Lace Dress (+ My Favorite Sandals)
This dress comes in a ton of colors and is flattering on a lot of different body types. The key is getting the right size because it is tight in the ribcage—I sized up to a medium and it fit perfectly. These sandals pair perfectly with it . . . and basically with everything else in my closet. They’re my favorite, most-worn, go-with-everything shoes. They’re comfortable to walk and dance in all night. And they’re also on sale.
5. This Oversized Cardigan
I’m wearing it now with denim shorts and sandals and later I’ll wear it with my skinny jeans and over-the-knee boots or flares and ankle booties. I’ll also probably be throwing it on over dresses and layering scarves over it too. It’s just such an easy layering piece that can be worn all year long and is super soft and comfy.
Sweater: Chealsea28 cardigan – wearing XS/S
