Hey, hey, Friday! It feels like we’re counting down the last days of summer with bated breath. Last chance to break out the pretty, summery statement pieces before pulling out the fall wardrobe. Swap in a gorgeous statement top like this 100% cotton Farm Rio stunner in place of the usual T-shirt to easily elevate a summer outfit.

Anyone else get excited thinking about fall layering? Sweater vests are once again in this season, and Julieta found this versatile knit (40% off and comes in four easy-to-style neutrals) — just add jeans and sneaks. I’m drooling over this off-white faux-leather motorcycle jacket Scotti’s eyeing up (there’s just something about ivory during cooler temps, y’know?), and Laura’s fave sweater-blazer for in-between temps is 50% off at J.Crew.
Em found the BEST Vuori joggers on sale! We seriously rave about how comfortable and flattering these are. S wears them year-round (with thick cozy socks during winter) and packs them for every trip.
P.S. In case you missed the recent sale, scoop up this Biossance bundle (on sale for under $100 and includes a full size of our beloved rose oil) and get a free six-piece mini set of skincare must-haves too! Use code: GETGLOWING.

Laura’s Sale Picks
Hey, hey, Friday! Definitely one of those short weeks where I didn’t know what day it was…everyday. But I know today. Hooray! Haha. We have the first soccer game of the season for Sienna this weekend and otherwise…lots of chilling. Definitely pizza night tonight, I’m thinking.
Anyone have a good movie suggestion? I’m such a movie person, but the only thing I’ve seen in theaters lately is the new Minions movie…heh. So like I have a lot of catching up to do. I like mysteries, comedies, rom-coms, indie films, dramas, historical fiction, action, foreign films…honestly anything but horror. TIA for any recs! I can’t wait to see “See How They Run” next week! Thinking I’ll also rewatch “Knives Out” again soon. Gosh…so good.
Also, rest in peace, Queen Elizabeth. Wow, what a reign, what a force.
FRAME Fangirling: These FRAME Le Original jeans I love are on sale for 40% off right now! I have last year’s version, which is only just slightly different in the wash but barely. You can see them on here in one of my fave articles from last fall. They are perfection with all my flats and slim-fitting boots. I love them styled with layered-up preppy pieces on top.
FRAME Fangirling — Again: AND these incredible FRAME Le Croyden chunky, lightweight boots S, Amy and I love are still on sale too! I cannot say enough good things about them. See them on me here along with my review of their best details and with a dress here.
Selma Blair Fangirling Now: OMG. She’s in the new Gap campaign, and I’m just loving it. I’ve followed her on IG for a few years, and her story is amazing. Check her out rocking this oversized black button-down that looks so rad. Need.
Have a good weekend everyone. Xoxo
Scotti’s Sale Picks
The first week of school went well…but we’re ALL exhausted and feeling the effects of getting back into a regular schedule/routine after playing it fast and loose with bedtimes over the summer. I had great intentions of signing up for a 5K this Saturday, but instead I will be sleeping in. (#priorities) Also…when is too early to start decorating for Halloween? (Asking for a friend.)
My favorite little storage-cube shelves are 50% off right now at Target — $17! I have them in my living room for toy organization and my room for storing things like socks, tights, bras, etc. These cubes fit perfectly and hold a ton, and reviewers love them as much as I do (plus, they make the entire unit look cute).
I came across these sandals (25% off), and I can’t imagine they’d be comfortable at all, but they have three five-star reviews…and they are really cute…?
These handbag straps aren’t on sale, but at $39 and $29, I LOVE them. I want this tartan strap for the holidays, and I love this black-and-white stiped one and this emerald-green resin chain (and there are a LOT more to choose from!).
Amy’s Sale Picks
This is my little fam’s last weekend in our home — eeek! We officially sign the papers to sell it early next week, all of our belongings are packed up in boxes, and I’m looking forward to having a little downtime between packing up the house and actually driving to our new city (we’re staying with family here before the big transition to soak up a little bit of northern Michigan’s perfect autumn season). If you’re curious to follow along on the journey (maybe I’ll even announce where we are going), find me on insta!
Bestseller: OK, apologies, because this is not on sale. However, after fully selling out over Labor Day weekend, the most amazing sweater is available again for preorder — RUN! (Fit notes: slightly oversized, but I still got my true size.)
Why Is This So Hard? I’ve been looking for a pair of non-distressed/frayed denim shorts all summer — they are shockingly hard to find. Just found these on sale, and I’m thinking they’re worth a try.
Em’s Sale Picks
Oh, short week — you devil, you. Friday totally snuck up on me, and it’s just the best feeling. We’ve had a week of epically glorious weather here (we’re talking high 70s, perfect sunny days, and cool, breezy coastal evenings) and have been making the most of it with late-morning beach walks and a couple mini dates to watch the sunset while our parents are in town. The big kiddo leveled up in gymnastics last week, so she’s been riding that high too. And we’re doing cast-iron skillet pizza again tonight — hurrah! In sum, just lotsa little wins that have me feeling extra-lucky as we ride into the weekend. Hope yours is equally grand.
Here’s where my head’s at with sales:
Looks (& Feels) like Melted Buttahhhh… Vuori has these cult-favorite, buttery-soft Flax Heather joggers on sale, and I can attest that it’s the most unexpectedly warm, cheery and actually flattering shade of gold. There’s a matching crew neck on sale too.
Schleppy-Chic Foundation Piece Alert: I had a sweater-blazer almost exactly like this one years ago, but it had a belt — which I mostly wore undone. It was the ideal piece for making literally anything look somewhat chic. Washed silk blouse and trousers? Check. Cropped jeans and a ribbed tank? Check. Leggings and a cami with the sweater tied up, almost #balletcore over it all? (I’d just add a belt of my own or a scarf to make it happen.) Checkitty-check-check. Currently 50% off and available in loads of tasteful shades, but I’m (unsurprisingly) eyeing the black.
Lilac Birks, in Stock: Amazingly, these lilac Birkenstock Madrid sandals seem well-stocked — and are 40% off. While you’re at Shopbop, its whole sale section is worth a gander. I like to filter by size and percent off to narrow things down to just the best deals.
Linzi’s Sale Picks
Hello, hello! I am back from my August disappearing act! I feel SO fortunate to have the opportunity to take this time in the summer (especially right before my oldest son started high school…gah!!!), but I definitely missed Friday sales! Quite happy to be back and searching the “internets” for all the gems after a nice long break. And now for the good stuff…
I’m SUCH a Sucker for Free Gifts: Especially when they’re travel size! Biossance is offering a free set of eight of my favorite minis with a $65 purchase…and this really good set (that includes my beloved vitamin C oil is $88).
Julieta’s Sale Picks
Today marks one week since we came back from almost two months in Colombia, and it’s been a tough adjustment. The cultural shock, going from being with people all the time to feeling lonely, from having all the help to doing it all here. My son was bawling at the airport, and that almost killed me. Phew, it’s gotten harder as I’ve gotten more attached to my roots, but we’re working toward spending more time there. In the meantime, we call NY home and love the life we’ve created here. It’s just two different worlds.
Under-$27 Awesomeness: I just saw this half-zip sweatshirt at the Rack, and I want it in black and Rustic Cognac. Other colors are pretty but not in my palette.
Sweater Vests for Fall: This sweater vest with a pair of jeans and flats/sneakers = done.
Coatigan or Sweater-Blazer? Aren’t they the same thing? I’m eyeing this long sweater-blazer in the Walnut color, but I’m not so sure about the straight fit on my body. It seems to have a good drape.
Jess’ Sale Picks
Hey, all! I’m currently on my “farewell to summer” tour with one last quick trip to Florida to visit my parents, and I’ve been doing all the cliché touristy things in order to relish the last glorious days of summer. Drinking margaritas by the beach, joining in the local drum circle, paddleboarding and riding my bike (until it was sadly stolen yesterday).
I’m trying to accumulate enough warm and happy memories to get me through another Michigan winter. It’s been such a good summer for me. For the first time ever, I can honestly say I’m not even ready for my favorite season of the year, fall. But thanks to all the superb sales that have been happening, my fall closet is pretty much fully stocked and ready for action! This week some of my favorites are on sale including:
The Best Silk Short-Sleeve Shirt of All Time by Everlane Is Over 40% Off: The perfect boxy fit, breezy fabric and gorgeous color options make this silk top my new go-to for everything! The fit is perfect, and the eco-conscious silk fabric is an added bonus. Trust me, you will LOVE this top.
The Perfect Plaid Coat for Fall: Remember that Bernardo plaid collarless coat that I fell in love with during the #NSale? It’s on major sale right now at Nordstrom, and I can’t think of a better statement coat for fall.
Denim Steal Deal of the Weekend: My favorite pair of AGOLDE ’90s Straight Jeans are only $119 at Anthro! That’s $80 off! Get ’em while they last.
