Happy Friday! I know we’re all itching to get our long weekend started, so without further ado… it’s time for our editors to show us what they’ve got. Memorial Day Weekend is a great time for sales, so you’d better believe we’re pulling out all the stops this week.

Personally? I might just treat myself to one of Jenni Kayne’s sweaters. S loves her fisherman sweater oh-so-much and she gets year-round wear out of it (spring and summer nights can get chilly too, y’know!) And for 20% off, if their sitewide sale isn’t a sign to #addtocart, I don’t know what is.

Jess’ Top Sale Picks

I just got back from Mexico! My mom and I had an absolute blast (when we weren’t completely melting from the heat — 75 degrees in MI feels positively chilly now). I lived in the pool, read books on my kindle and drank cocktails out of pineapples. Check out this reel on my Instagram to see all my favorite outfits from my trip!

As for sales, Anthropologie’s sale section is an extra 40% off, J.Crew is having a massive 40% off sale, and almost everything at Abercrombie is 20% off. 

Memorial Day Weekend sales at Gap and Nordstrom, striped sweater, Steve Madden studded ballet flats

Sweater (L, TTS) | Ballet Flats (7.5, TTS) 

ONE: Gap’s 24/7 Split-Hem Crewneck Sweater is absolutely a wardrobe hero in my closet. It’s basically wearable through all four seasons, I even take it to the beach and the lake for summer evenings. Their striped Split-hem Polo sweater also caught my eye and it’s an extra 60% off! 

TWO: I am obsessed with these Steve Madden studded ballet flats and even more obsessed with the price… they’re half-off for under $50!! I love them so much that I’m getting the snake print option as well (which is fully stocked in all sizes). 


Bev’s Top Sale Picks

This has been a great week. Our oldest’s school always invites guardians for a Memorial Day observance; the kids can submit a picture of someone in their family that served, and those get added to a slide show. It’s always very touching. My husband’s aunt, uncle and both grandpas served in the navy and army. 

Also, our youngest is done with his first year of preschool (!) and we got invited to come and have lunch with him. We were about 5 minutes late because my husband thought it would be a Great Idea to shower right before we had to leave the house. Our son was so happy when he saw us — I’d told him this morning that we were going to have lunch with him. 

In other news, our neighborhood pool opens tomorrow and I just got this swimsuit in the mail… and it fits like a glove! Based on reviews, I ordered a size 12 (the suit runs small). 

Memorial Day Weekend sales at J.Crew and Athleta

Dress (10) | Dress (L)

ONE: I absolutely love this dress, and you all know I’ve been preferring dresses lately (they’re just so easy to throw on when we need to leave the house). I’m wearing a size 10 in the pic above, which is my usual size at J.Crew. However, the buttons on the front of the dress didn’t quite lay right (too tight in some places) — I’d definitely recommend sizing up.

TWO: When I pulled this little poplin number out of the box, it looked like it would be see-through. After putting it on, it didn’t look bad at all (I wore wearing nude undergarments. It will be a great addition to my wardrobe. 


Julieta’s Top Sale Picks

I haven’t joined in on the Weekly Sales Report in a while, so hola! Life has been crazy here for the past few months. This weekend, we’re on soccer duty as my son has a tournament in another state, and then we’re joining my in-laws for my father-in-law’s birthday. The packing is almost ready; I have it all laid out next to me, and it makes me so happy as I can see all my favorite pieces and colors going so well together. 

Talking about colors and sales, if you want to shop smarter and glow in color, I have a special this month for a “Discover Your Best Colors” consult. More info here! For more amazing sales this weekend, Naked Cashmere is high on my list. I recently pulled these pants (30% off code: BESTOFSUMMER30) for a client, and she had to wear them right away. Matching polo here. They have great, comfy-chic pieces for summer!

On sale at Saks: Farm Rio maxi summer dress

Dress (S)

I love using the sales to score amazing pieces from Farm Rio, one of my favorite brands. This goddess dress has the most beautiful colors, I love the sexy top and the skirt is very forgiving (could even work for a bump!). 


Amy’s Top Sale Picks

Well, helllloooo, to all the sales this weekend. There’s so much going on, so much GOOD, that I’m just going to break it down easily into my top faves: 

Stocking up on skincare: 25% off the face lotion that cannot be beat for extra dry, sensitive skin (the entire site is on sale, so I’m grabbing another of my 2nd most used product, too). Discount is auto added to cart!

$14 this weekend: I own this ribbed tank in two colors (the contrast trim ones from the top row) and they’re the best summer top I’ve found in years. I buy the tall so they’re not so cropped! 

Seaside blues: I can’t get this embellished cotton shift dress or this linen button-back top out of my head. Both in blue, naturally. My cart here is going to be big, I’m afraid.  

Jenni Kayne Memorial Day sale, Abercrombie & Fitch Memorial Day sale

Crewneck (L) | Shorts (29)

ONE: My favorite time to shop Jenni Kayne is during big holiday sales like this – I think it was this exact time last year that I scooped up this 100% cotton crewneck that is the *perfect* pairing for summer shorts or layered over a slip dress. This one sold out last year, but they just restocked it in two stripe patterns (including mine!) as well as the most GORGEOUS solid oatmeal shade. Unlike most JK sweaters, this one runs TTS! 

TWO: I have a great collection of cut-offs, so I find myself only buying new denim shorts when they are extra fun and unique like this striped pair. They go perfectly with the coastal-theme outfit dreams I have every single summer, and they give off the look of the current trending “boxer style short” while still being structured denim that will never actually go out of style. Runs a bit small, I sized up one for a comfortable fit. ALSO, sidenote, the entire website is basically 20% off


Em’s Top Sale Picks

Oh, hi! (*Taylor Swift voice* IYKYK) We’ve had a rough one this week. Chris was down with a nasty run of covid, and since we have plans to travel next week that involve grandparents watching the girls, etc., we sent him into full pandemic isolation mode, and I’ve been solo parenting since Sunday. Strangely, it’s been…kind of ok. The girls have been exceptionally cooperative, the weather’s been a delight, and I just remembered I have pork and sauerkraut dumplings in the freezer for lunch. So, yeah — taking all the little wins.

Sales this weekend are, obviously, absofrickinlutely great. Topping my list: this Biossance duo: two of my favorite full-size products for $57 in cart after the 25% off promo. The copper peptide serum, alone, is typically $68, so this is just bananas. I know we chat about a lot of skincare, but I’ve been using Biossance for the past 8 years, and these two products are among my very favorite. Just do it. Also: now that this is an additional 40% off, it’s an absolute no-brainer, especially in the blue; and the split hem and subtle two-tone on these jeans makes even the cropped style feel fresh, perfect for summer (and just about $50!).

On sale: J.Crew striped sweater and Vetchy swimsuits

sweater (xs), jeans (TTS) | exact suit (s/s), similar on sale, more on sale!

ONE: Ok this sweater is both on sale and…not. BUT STICK WITH ME. This exact sweater is a few seasons old — but the new version (with cute ribbing at the hem and cuffs) is 40% off in the white and marked down to $16 in the taupe stripe and the black with code SUMMER. They’re both in my cart. TTS, or size up for a boxier fit.

TWO: Vetchy suits have been stalking me all over IG and I finally took the bait. Turns out, they’re excellent. The Laguna bikini I’m wearing is their bread and butter — the quality is superb, the straps are so comfy, the bottoms are cheeky (or not, there are options) yet are somehow super flattering — and nothing digs anywhere. It’s admittedly more than I spend on my usual Amazon suits, but you get what you pay for, and this weekend a bunch of colors are on sale. This is in the same color family as the one I’m wearing; but this is the one I’m eyeing for our trip next week. I’m 5’5”/34C and am wearing a S in the top and a S in the cheeky bottom.


Anne’s Top Sale Picks

Memorial Day weekend is finally here, and I’m so excited. In our house, this weekend marks the end of the school year for my husband and what feels like six million high school graduation parties. I’m stoked to celebrate this milestone with our community and embrace the summer season.

I’m also pretty excited about Memorial Day sales. I’ve already hit order on a few items that I’ve been waiting to see if they would go on sale. I picked up these fun green leggings at Athleta, this gorgeous black and white floral print dress from GAP, and these white jeans from Madewell that look similar to the cut of the Anthropologie Colette pants.

On sale this weekend: Madewell Harlow trouser pants, Madewell linen top

Pants (30), Sandals Top (M) and Jeans (32)

ONE: The airy denim version of the Madewell Harlow pants is awesome. They are so comfortable and genuinely airy for summer. The pants come in several colors, but I love the white version for summer, especially paired with other whites and creams on top. Use code LONGWEEKEND for 25% off. Some of the colors of my comfy Aerosole stacked-heel sandals are also on sale this weekend.

TWO: This bateau neck linen top that buttons up the back is so sweet, easy, and just the tiniest bit sexy (there’s a vent on the back that shows just a little bit of your lower back). 25% off on the Madwell site with code LONGWEEKEND. I’m also wearing my favorite Everlane Curvy Way High Skinny Jeans, which are also 25% off (as is Everlane’s whole site!) this weekend.


Kat’s Top Sale Picks

Hey, hey, hey, it’s Friday! I know it’s been a while since you’ve seen my face in a Weekly Sales Report, but just know I am hanging with all the behind-the-scenes TME crew. Particularly so on our YouTube channel — if you aren’t following us there, you totally should be, because the content is oh-so-good! This weekend, I am excited to catch up with Laura, who is here in Nashville (!) and we are headed to dinner later tonight. I can’t wait to chit chat, laugh and eat all the good Nashville noms. 

Anywho, let’s get into the sales I am loving this Memorial Day Weekend! One of my favorite dresses that I purchased recently is on major sale for $72, and I’ve got my eye on these lounge shorts. Oh, and if you’re looking for a cool AF pair of low-profile sneakers that aren’t Sambas… these. I’m also in major need of a little bedroom refresh, and have been eyeing these sheets.

On sale this weekend: Anthropologie denim dress, Old Navy boxer shorts

dress (3x) | button down (2x), shorts (3x) 

ONE: Nashville is the city of denim dresses, denim tops, and denim on denim. And TBH, I am having so much fun switching up my style here. This dress is absolute perfection. It hugs by body perfectly, and will be a most-worn item for me! LOVE IT! Oh, and it’s currently $72!!

TWO: I am so obsessed with the boxer shorts trend lately, and love how fun and comfy they are. Plus, I love a good style challenge and think these look amazing for casual fits, but equally as great for a more elevate look, too. The pair I am wearing are currently on sale for $12, and now that these are 50% off, I am grabbing them too!  


Scotti’s Top Sale Picks

I am rested and refreshed, you guys! Andy (the bf) and I spent last weekend in Mexico, and I had forgotten just how relaxing a sun-soaked getaway can be! This weekend we’re taking the kids to see SHANA and family! It’s been a minute since we’ve seen them…since Labor Day, in fact! WAY too long considering I used to see them at least once a quarter. I suppose that’s what happens when the kids start to grow up! 

Speaking of growing up, Greenlea had her voice recital last night and…I was absolutely blown away. It’s one thing to hear her singing (all the time, non-stop) at home but, put her in front of a microphone, ready to perform, and she is ON. She sang Castle on a Cloud from Les Mis and I was floored—jaw-droppingly floored. Not to mention the INSANE talent of the other kids…I’d bet money at least one of them will be famous someday.

But onto sales…of course they’re SO GOOD this weekend, but my top picks are this Dyson Straightener ($100 off and takes hair from wet to dry with NO damage??), this gorgeous one-piece from J.Crew that can double as a bodysuit, and these simple gold shell flip flops for 30% off!

Happy Memorial Day weekend, everyone!

Abercrombie bodysuit on sale, J.Crew sweater vest and cargo pants on sale

Bodysuit (m) | Sweater Vest (s), Pants (28) 

ONE: I have yet to find a bodysuit better than Abercrombie’s basics (they’ve been my favorite for years, now)…and that includes Skims! This one is on sale for $40 (along with 20% off almost everything) and it’s comfortable, easy to dress up or down, and comes in a TON of color options. I’m wearing a medium, the small would also work if I wanted a tighter, more compressive fit. Also wearing: Jeans (29, run small) | Bag

TWO: J.Crew always delivers during the big holiday weekend sales, and this time is no different. I love this sweater vest for spring and summer…I’m wearing the navy here, but I might like the black even better?? (And the pants I’m wearing are on crazy sale — down to $34 from $118!?)


Laura’s Top Sale Picks

Hey hey, Friday. Hi from Nashville! I’m here visiting my BFF and am having such a lovely time. Today, guess who I get to see? TME’s own Kat! We’re headed to dinner together tonight and I’m so excited. We’ll be in East Nashville, my former beloved home. I love this city that I actually grew up in (spent my 20’s here) and it will always be a huge part of my heart. 

Sales this holiday weekend…are pretty fab, friends. Get yourself over to Everlane (25% off sitewide)… I mean, I want it all. And they’ve totally revamped their styled photos, they really show the pieces wayyy better. Love. These sandals in Caramel and this phenomenal linen dress are what caught my eye first. And besides Nordstrom (which we covered on the blog the other day), Gap gets my vote for best sales. Start with this pretty top that I love.

On sale at Everlane: black trouser pants, on sale at Gap: denim blazer

Pants (S) | Blazer (M) 

ONE: This pair of pants is one of the best around. If you need a go-to work pant that can also easily be worn casually on the weekends, these: The Everlane Dream Pant. They’re thick enough that they lay so nicely on the body without being too heavy. They’re a pull-on style and come in XXS – 4X in sizes. I included them in my forever closet pieces post a while ago and I still stand by that. My pal who wears a 3X has and also adores them. They’re so good. TTS. I am in a S and they still fit, but I’d get a M if I were ordering them now. 

TWO: This denim blazer from Gap has become my go-to instead of a jean jacket and it’s now 60% off! I love a blazer for leveling up just about any outfit, and this combo of denim + a structured jacket hits such a sweet spot for me. It’s so cute layered over my summer vests for a casual nod to a suit-moment. It’s superb quality and a piece I’ll have for a long time. TTS. Wearing a M. My jeans are on sale, too!
