Clean up those grills, dig out those flip-flops, and wear something gingham: Memorial Day Weekend is here! And with it come the sales. We’ve been hard at work rounding up all of the best pieces from the sales you need to know about. Per usual, we’re trying to keep things tightly edited (no one has time to page through a ton of crap), and if last year was any indicator, the sales will continue to change as the weekend goes on, so keep checking back: we’ll be updating this page as best we can.
In between slathering on sunscreen, and a beer or two. Obvi.
Our Guide To The Memorial Day Sales
Old Favorites, Now On Sale
Happily, there are a ton of items already on sale that we’ve featured before. These are pieces we own, we love, and we think you will love them, too. You might recognize a few of these from the blog….
Clockwise from top left: Cashmere crewneck sweater & Tomgirl jeans, Shift dress & Sandals, Grey Sweatshirt, Gingham Button Up, Orbit Earrings & One-shoulder Top, Peacoat, White Booties & Deep V Tee, Tunic, Hoodie & Midi Shorts
Bottom Row: Reebok Classic Club C 85 – updated version of my sneaker on sale…like it even better. American Eagle Tomgirl Bermuda Shorts – Size up one size for looser look in the legs. Born Man Easy Sandal – Almost identical to favs from last summer.
Left: You may remember my Levi’s white denim jacket from The Mom Edit’s IG stories..it’s currently 15% off! And this white tank top? IT’S NOT SEE THROUGH. I repeat. It’s not see through. Go snag this tank (that you can wear with a regular bra) for 25% off while you can. Pair with these crazy comfy, super-flattering pants and you’ll never have to wear anything else.
Center: The Alice and Olivia gods have answered our prayers today, people – my favorite top is on sale. This pajama-esque silky blouse is too good to NOT wear out of the house.
Top row: 1. This was the only top I liked from Chriselle Lim’s collection because the ruffle falls nicely on high-rise bottoms without showing my belly button. The back is smocked and stretchy. 2. A floral wrap dress is a no-brainer in the warmer months. I’ve been wearing it with boots for the rain or sandals on warmer days: very postpartum- and nursing-friendly. 3. Bardot Polka dot wrap top. The wrap is perfect, the peplum style very slimming.
Bottom row: 1. This Bardot polka dot wrap dress is beautiful. Runs small. 2. My favorite Seychelles burgundy boots, the only ones I have, are finally on sale for 40% off. Believe me, it’s the first time they are on sale. 3. Last but not least, these High-rise Wedgie Levi’s shorts: Best shorts I’ve ever tried on. There’s videos of me trying them on my Instagram (@theunbosom) They are very flattering and the inseam length is perfect IMO. Not too short, not too long. I do have to mention that you need to go two sizes up.
Left: This J. Crew sweater blazer is perfect for chilly morning and evenings. It’s a chic alternative to a hoodie or denim jacket and it’s 40% off!
Right: I’m not sure I’ve taken my Levi’s Mile High Super Skinny ankle jeans off since I got them a few weeks ago. My exact pair isn’t on sale, but here’s another version in the same fit.
