A Little Sale Never Hurt Anyone…

It’s Labor Day Weekend, we all know what that means, it’s a good weekend to be a good consumer! Holiday weekends are now pretty much synonymous with “sale”, but hey who is complaining?!  Chances are you have somewhere fun to go and a new outfit would be perfect for the occasion, especially one that is on sale!  Oh and it’s the first weekend of college football, yes I love fashion and football, so you very well may need the perfect outfit for that as well.  With all of that said, maybe you just want to shop a good sale and stock up for Fall.  So here are some great sales happening this weekend and my top picks from them.

Nordstrom is having a clearance sale, up to 40% off through September 7th.

So these may not be perfect for game day this weekend but they will be in the coming months and they will go with any school colors as well as be comfortable.

Trouve Faux Leather Front Leggings

These can be worn so many months of the year, including right now!

 

Dolce Vita Shandy Cutout Sandal

So, I know I am picking all black and ‘leather’ items, but can you blame me?  These shorts are awesome and a really great price for leather shorts (less than $100).  Definitely wear them this weekend if you are going somewhere indoors only but they will be awesome for Fall anytime!  A classic short.

Forever 21 is having an unbelievable sale, buy one get one!  Whether you love these pieces for a season or forever they are worth it!

Throw this dress on with flats or heels, simple earrings, a long necklace and go!

I’ve Got The Blues

I have always been a jeans kind of girl, I love them!  Dress them up, down…all around, I will wear them pretty much any which way and luckily I live in a city where denim is accepted almost anywhere, anytime.  Denim has always been a fashion staple but recently it has made a complete resurgence showing up in all forms.  With Fall coming (what we get of it here in Texas), it makes me even more excited about jeans and denim, all I can think about are the new pairs I have bought and how I want to wear them without dying of heat exhaustion! So without further ado, lets go look at some of my favorite denim items right now.

I have had many people ask me how I feel about the overall trend, and quite frankly I wasn’t sure-until I tried these on.  I really like them!  They are comfortable, cute and I love that they have a skinny leg.  I have been dying to wear them in!  To the overall doubters I say “try them on”, they may not be for you but it is one of those things you will never know until you try.

Distressed Denim Overalls

Keeping with a similar trend, I found these today and WANT them!  Joe’s are always a good denim and you can wear this jumpsuit a million times and ways.

 

PS. It's on sale...

Do not let the words “high rise” mislead you, all it means in this case is “made for women who don’t like low rise”.  These jeans are made for everyone from 17 to 71!  I know, because my Mother bought them and loves them more than any other pair of denim she owns.  I love Joe’s, I have two pair and wear them all of the time.

Joe's Flawless High Rise Skinny

I have tried these flare jeans on, they are fabulous!  The only reason I didn’t buy them is I was pregnant at the time.  Pair these with a great (faux) fur vest and suede boots!

Can you go wrong with jeans + grey?

Hudson Grey Skinnies

If you have ready my blog before, you probably know that I am big fan of Blank denim, they have cute styles, fit well and are a nice price point.  These combine two fabulous things, skinny and boyfriend!

Blank Skinny Boyfriend

Stella is wearing my new Just Black Boyfriend jeans that I picked up at Beehive last week, go get a pair before they are gone (really great price point)!

Denim on denim is definitely on trend.  Pair this top with any of the above!

Treasure & Bond Chambray

I can’t leave the men out! These are awesome because they are denim but look like trousers, men can wear a button down and oxfords and be ready for dinner!  You can even add a vest to change it up!

Joe's Brixton Slim Fit

Guess what?  These are Levi’s!!

And so are these!

And of course, it’s back to school, so the kids too!

The grey is different and cute!

It’s Your Time

So rarely do I talk about Men’s fashions on my blog, even though I do love it!  Often I think, “well, my readership is mostly women, not men, so I will cater to them” but lately it has occurred to me that often the woman does the shopping for her (main) man!  Therefore, it’s time-this post is all about the men; I thought I would share with you some of my faves from the Men’s Half Yearly Sale currently going on at Nordstrom.  This is a great time to get some basics, even expensive basics like suits because they are on major sale.  The thing I love about a Nordstrom sale is that they don’t just put the items on sale that nobody wants, they put the good things too!  Happy shopping, I hope the man in your life appreciates; and to my men readers-thank you!

I love these and I think most guys will too, they are a hybrid-swim and/or street short; what guy doesn’t like function with fashion?

These shorts come in a variety of colors and can be a great go-to all Summer long!

Memorial Day Weekend Part 1

Who doesn’t love a good sale?  I know I do!  Holidays and holiday weekends are notorious for great sales, so why not take advantage of them?  For some people they can be overwhelming and some think if it is on sale it must be out of style or not a good product.  Let me assist on both accounts by sorting through some current sales for the Memorial Day Weekend and picking out some worthwhile items.  I mean, who doesn’t want a new outfit (or two) for a fun, holiday weekend?!  An important note regarding sale items, as with all items, make sure it is an item that is right for you and do not purchase it just because it is on sale!

If you like an item you see, make sure to click on it to visit the link of where to buy it!

You know me, I NEED to start with shoes & accessories!

I know this may seem like a strange item for me to suggest for your Memorial Day buys but everyone needs a good denim jacket and in some parts of the country/world Memorial Day isn't blazing hot, especially at night.  So why not get this staple piece on sale?!

Winter Went on Sale!

I know we live in Texas and some days are like an early Spring day and some like a Winter Northern, at least Texas style, but keep in mind that all around the country Winter is still very much in full effect and while this year has not been typical our coldest months are usually January, February and even the beginning of March.  Therefore, I know it is fun and tempting when we have a day in the upper 60’s to go shopping for that bright Spring wardrobe (which I am not saying you shouldn’t do), but also be sure to keep your Winter wardrobe full and ready to go in your main closet.  There are some perks to this time of year though…SALES!  Stores are getting in their Spring inventory and have to make room for it, so what do they do-put their Winter inventory on sale of course!  As a consumer, this is fabulous!  This is a great time to stock up on pieces that you have been admiring but just couldn’t pull the trigger on full price for, it can be a trend item that may only last you this year (hence the need to buy it on sale) or an expensive, timeless item that will carry you through multiple Winters but you couldn’t or wouldn’t buy at original price.

Here are just a few items I have spotted on sale that I think are worth snagging up:

This bootie is great because it will carry you into Spring.  The built in wedge makes it casual but still offers height.  (I may own these in Olive!)

This cashmere and leather cardigan is one of those "get it while it is on sale" pieces.  You will wear this forever with everything, it is timeless, sure to be comfortable and can go with just about anything!  It is the perfect weight for Texas too.

I love these, you will wear them a few times between now and March and you may or may not feel like pulling them out again in the Fall but either way you don't have to stress because they are cute, on sale and inexpensive!
