I hope you all had a great holiday weekend! I enjoyed the day off from work and headed to our local mall to scour all the summer sales. Hard to believe July 1st pretty much marks the day for the start of “fall fashion”!? What is this crazy world we live in? 🙂 I was a little bummed the LOFT 50% off sale had already ended, I had a few returns from a previous sale and wanted to exchange for a few of their new arrivals. Instead I found a pair of shorts (here
) that are part of their current sale – at 60% off! I can’t rave about how great they are — will hopefully get a chance to wear them soon and will do a blog post.
Banana Republic also has quite a few great items for “50% off the sale price” and I found a nice v-neck blouse on final sale that I’m in love with. I couldn’t find it online, but it also comes in a dress print (here
) which would be gorgeous for a summer wedding! I caved and picked up that pretty Ann Taylor pencil skirt (here
) also during their 40% off sale. All in all – very happy I scored some good finds! I ordered a few things on sale from Nordstrom also. Not sure they will work out, but will review when I can. Their ‘Anniversary Sale’ (which is the sale.of.ALL.sales) starts July 14th for cardholders – you betcha I’m excited about that one! More details to come when it gets closer.
My outfit below is what I wore yesterday for our shopping excursion. I’m in love with the big checkered gingham print! Although it’s a little past date now to carry a red bag, this outfit (or something similar) could easily be worn throughout the rest of summer – just switch out the red bag for a pink, blue, or green one (fun options below)! 🙂
