This time last year, I had just found out that I would be making one of the biggest moves in my life. I had been living in Columbus, OH working in a job where I no longer felt fulfilled and had an opportunity of a lifetime to take on a new role here in Colorado. It was the best decision I ever made. Between house hunting and packing, I most definitely missed out on all the sales from last year’s Memorial Day, and didn’t have time for barbecues and festivities. But this year things are a bit different; I’m settled in a house I absolutely love (though I will admit the housing market has given me the itch to buy), and am going to be keeping things super low-key. My plan is to sit back, drink a few cold ones, and shop the sales while I catch up on The Kardashians.
Now that work has officially ended for the school year, I’m heading back to my home state for some much needed R&R with my family. I can’t wait to spend time with my not-so-little brother, work on some fun home renovation projects with my mom, and eat all of my dad’s amazing barbecue!
Kat’s Memorial Day Sales Edit: Top 5 Things I Love & Own
With packing and sales on my mind, I’ve noticed that quite a few of my FAV pieces are on sale! Expect to see those below + 5 new things on sale that I’m eyeing up. Let’s get into it, yes!?
You all know that I live for GA jeans, and these ones are my most worn pair! I love the distressing, the wash and the fit. These jeans have zero stretch and do fit true to size. What I love most about GA jeans, in general, is that they fit my bum bum so well. Typically I find that jeans have a ton of spacing in the back, especially when I sit. But these don’t have that problem at all. These are a great pick for summer. Find them at Good American and Nordstrom.
p.s. If you love the style, but want a more classic pair (sans distressing) these are a great option!
Okay y’all, I fell in LOVE with this jacket the moment that I tried it on and it feels like butter. What I love about the VEDA jacket is that it is both a cropped version, and the sleeves are removable for the moments when you want that total biker babe vibe. This jacket is a total investment piece, and although 11honore doesn’t have a formal Memorial Day sale, they did send me this special link that you can use to get $200 off of your purchase, which ends up being a 25% discount off of the jacket!
I typically am a two-piece kind of gal, but when I tried this suit on several months ago, I was totally sold. I love that this one-piece has that va va voom element that is also tasteful. I love the black and the snake print lace-up touches. This swimsuit is everything and more I could have dreamt of for the summer!
These joggers are perfect for summer; they are ultra lightweight, and the fabric is very different from a sweat pant-style material. They are made out of recycled polyester and spandex, and have lots of pockets for storing keys, lip balm or some snacks.
I bought my Dyson Cool Link Air Purifier on a shopping trip to Costco when all we were planning on buying was toilet paper. I’ve had this air purifier for two months now and am absolutely in love. I have pretty bad allergies and have noticed that I am waking up way less stuffy than before. I love that this has the cooling feature, especially since we don’t have AC, and it does actually cool you! I’m not talking ice age level cool, but cool enough for a comfortable sleep! The version that I found on sale is smaller, but totally worth it since it’s $100 cheaper than full price!
Memorial Day: Top 5 Things I Want To Buy
Ever since I saw S in this jogger set, I was 100% interested in trying it! I wish NAADAM sold extended sizes, but I am inclined to order them in an XL, since I do often buy XL sizing for certain items. Now that NAADAM is having a sale, I figure now is the time to give these a try! Wish me luck, here’s to hoping that they fit!
I have almost bought these pillowcases more times than I can count. It seems like every time I go to buy them the sale I saw has ended or the color I want isn’t in stock. When I saw that these are 20% off at DERMSTORE, I knew I needed to jump on it quickly! I do have satin pillowcases right now, but have been jonesing to try these!
Personally I love a good tinted moisturizer for the summer, and this Juice Beauty CC cream seems like a great find! It’s a 12-in-1 product that smooths skin and has anti-aging benefits. I think its the perfect addition for a clean beauty summer routine! And I would top it off with the COOLA setting spray, and I am totally stoked that it can be used without makeup as a quick facial SPF.
We have just about every kitchen gadget under the sun, but the one thing we don’t have is a juicer. When I saw that this CRUX juicer was on sale, I was so excited. Particularly because this is the brand of all our kitchen items and it’s also digital! I would love to make my own fresh juices this summer, especially so that we can make homemade ginger turmeric shots!
I’m in desperate need of a backyard makeover; actually, all the landscaping at this house is in need of some TLC. As a person who is such a sun child, I would love to have this outdoor day bed from Anthropologie in my backyard! And with 30% off all outdoor furniture, it makes this splurge purchase worth it. I’m obsessed with this umbrella, too.

You all already know that Adidas is a sustainable brand, and they are killing the plus-size athletic wear game too! These picks are so good!
I love that DERMSTORE is having a mega-sale right now, and they’re actually the first retailer I’ve found that sells one of my all time favorite makeup brands: Youngblood Cosmetics! I added in some of my tried-and-true staples and some things I personally am wanting.
All the jeans I love from GA, plus a few wishlist items that I’ve been eyeing for a while!
