Happy Labor Day Weekend!
I hope you’re somewhere soaking up every last bit of the season. The ONLY thing that’s saving me from the end-of-summer doldrums = fall fashion.
Editors’ Labor Day Sales Faves: Fall Fashion, Beauty & Back-To-School
We have a lot of fun trends to look forward to, one being face masks (a definite first) and many of those pieces are on sale already! Woohoo! Seems like the team and I are on the same page because I’m seeing some gorg ivory cardigans (this one, too)…pretty fall florals and denim that pairs with literally everything and just feels…fresh.

Hey, y’all. Anyone else not firing on all cylinders? Ok. Hi. TGIF. We’re pretty much laying low this weekend until Monday, when we’re going camping in the woods by a river, AKA my happy place. I’m stoked. Until then, I’ll be checking out the rad sales. There are some tried-and-true favorites of mine on sale, like those awesome Frye boots I’m living in and my favorite Adidas track jacket I throw on over everything. And there are some pieces I’ve been eyeing for a while (I’m talking about you, amazing Zadig & Voltaire cami.) Bloomingdale’s, Gap, Nordstrom, and Abercrombie have some fabulous finds this weekend. I’ll be pulling an edited, but bit-larger roundup together soon, so stay tuned!

September in our household is about implementing routines and schedules (FINALLY…woohoo!), but this year…we’re going to need ALL the adjustments. Man! How is it that nothing went quite how I thought it would this first week of school-from-home? My kids love their teachers, though, and are so happy to see their school friends on their computer screens, which is both heart-warming and heart-breaking. And now…it’s Friday and I’m going to hide upstairs for a bit, and do what I always do: search the sales.
I definitely am going to need to get creative with my exercise schedule, so having some pieces that work for school/work-from-home, but also transition easily to quick exercise breaks will help. I’m eyeing some pieces at Athleta, but there are some really cute, super budget-friendly pieces at Gap right now as well (especially with the 40% off!). Happy September everyone…a big shout-out to all you teachers out there…thank you thank you thank you for the patience, creativity and stability you are providing for our little (and not-so-little-anymore) ones.

I seriously cannot believe that September is already here!? Where the heck is time going? Though I will say, I am more than ready to say Bye Felicia to 2020! These past few weeks, I’ve been getting readjusted to a new routine, and have certainly let some personal goals slip by with all the change that’s been going on. I am refocusing my energy this September to be centered around my health and making healthy habits, which for me, includes a little more reading, a little less clutter, and a lot more time outside walking with my pup.
A part of my efforts on the decluttering front are to upgrade my vacuum, and I am excited that the V8 Cordless Dyson Absolute Pro and the Dyson Ball Animal 2 Upright are both on sale! So many of you weighed in on your opinions, and I so appreciate the insight, and this will be one of my Labor Day purchases. As things start to cool down here in CO (we are getting 4 inches of SNOW on Tuesday), I am going to be checking out some more winter gear. The sales at J.Crew, Anthropologie, Macy’s and Nordstrom are all where I’ll be looking for some fall and winter staples. I hope you all have a happy and safe holiday weekend! XX – Kat

Well, apparently fall is officially (unofficially) here. The “nicest” days in the next week look like they’ll be no warmer than 65. Sweet. I love fall, really, but I was hoping to sneak in juuuust a couple more hot days…boo. But, Greenlea starts school (virtually) next Tuesday and it might be a good thing the weather isn’t beckoning us outside. From what I’ve heard from friends, the beginning of school has been…rough this year. We’ll see how it goes soon!
Meanwhile I’ll be checking out some of these awesome Labor Day Sales…including stocking up on my favorites from Colleen Rothschild (20% off the entire site,) and I might need to invest in a new bag since there’s an extra 20% off with code LABORYAY20 over at Rebecca Minkoff. (This one is over $100 off!). Oh, and Selena Gomez just launched her new makeup line, Rare Beauty, over at Sephora—it’s not on sale, but I can’t wait to try it! (And Sephora has a pretty awesome sale section right now as well.). Finally, Gap has an awesome sale of 40% off your purchase as well as an extra 50% off sale styles . . . my fam and I recently tried a bunch of their stuff and had so much fun taking pics together! (It’s SO cliche, but…how do they grow so freaking fast??). Happy Labor Day Weekend, everyone!)

Well heyyyy there, September. Nice to see you. The weather is typically GORGEOUS here this time of year, so we’re setting our sights on getting a movie projector set up in the yard (recommendations? we’re not opposed to shelling out a little more for something that will offer a great picture in the outdoors) — just trying to hang on to the sense of summer for as long as possible, even though we just completed our THIRD week of school. We’re giving ourselves a full month at home before we attempt that whole adventure learning plan I set my sights on when we committed to a full year of remote schooling. It’s had its challenges, but I’m hoping that, like most things involving young kids, this is yet another situation in which Lana just needs to…get into her groove? I could say the same for me.
I’m honestly feeling a little shopped out at the moment, so the items that are catching my eye aren’t the most exciting, but they’re wardrobe staples I know will get a workout. Somehow this sherbety tie-dye sweatshirt is still well-stocked and 40% off with code SHOP, and if you’re looking for a daypack for yourself or your kiddos, our beloved Fjallraven is 20% off at Backcountry in loads of colors. (It almost never goes on sale, especially at reputable retailers where you know you’re getting the real thing, so if you’ve been eyeing one, now’s the time.) And I suppose if I was going to pick up something a little frivolous, this tiny two-tone Tory Burch bag would be it. A little bit graphic, a little bit preppy and the perfect piece to wear crossbody over all my fall sweaters.
Finally, I feel like the glory of this Colleen Rothschild cleansing balm wasn’t properly touted in my last post with them. After using it for three weeks straight, I can honestly report that I now genuinely look forward to the ritual that is washing my face. It’s such a soothing, rejuvenating process, and my skin has never looked better. Everything is 20% off this weekend with code LBDAY20. Cheers, folks!

The container store is taking all my money this weekend!!! As the uncertainty of the next few months creeps in — kids start school next week — I need to feel I’m in control of something. Ron (husband) will roll his eyes when he sees me unpacking boxes and organizing but I’ll have the biggest smile for a day or two.
Aside from rolling carts, behind-the-door racks and closet organizers, I’m into classic pieces from Ann Taylor, like these pants I plan on wearing now and into winter with cashmere sweaters to lounge at home. I also have to give a big shoutout to the most cushiony slide sandals I’ve worn this summer. After ordering and returning what felt like a thousand pairs, these won my feet.

Aaaaah. I love September, the leaves are starting to change and there is a cool breeze in the air, so you know Autumn isn’t far off. This weekend, besides bargain hunting, we are looking forward to watching the new version of Mulan on Disney +; Jon has been EXTRA excited about this one, so we are making a big deal out of it. It’s $30 to buy, but you can watch it as much as you want after purchase. Our new neighbors at the farm down the street just put up a stand selling this year’s crop of tomatoes and zinnias, so we’ve been walking by there everyday and stocking up. I’m thinking Caprese salads for dinner.
As for sales, I’m loving everything from Banana Republic right now, where everything is 40% off (no code needed), Bloomingdale’s also has some GREAT sale finds like the perfect pair of PAIGE skinny jeans to wear with OTKB’s this fall, and I’m obsessed with this convertible belt bag from Anthro!

I’d like to say fall is coming, but it’s not really…not for us below the Mason Dixon Line. It is still very hot here. I’d also like to say that crisp, cool weather shall be here within the month, but that would be a lie, as well. That’s okay, though! I still like to get all comfy and cozy and pretend it’s a real fall by cranking up the a/c, putting on some good loungewear, like this freekin’ amazing Stardust Terry Sweatpant set! I am also looking at these Adidas/GG look-a-like sneakers like, OH, haaaaaaaay.
Anyways, my friends. Hope that you have a lovely long weekend! Cheers to you, Cams

Happy holiday weekend!
