Happy Memorial Day, you Americans!! I hope you all are enjoying a lovely, long weekend! I’m embarrassed to say I was ready for a three day weekend even though I just got back from my trip! Since the warm weather is sneaking up on us (some of you are already having heat waves), it’s time to start thinking summer fashion and outdoor fun. And why not get into the swing of all things summer when there are so, so many Memorial Day sales going on. Below are five great sales going on (ending tonight or tomorrow) along with a few picks of what I’m eyeing from each site. I dress so incredibly casual in the summer (even more than normal), so I’m all about cotton tees and dresses. Oh, and cute accessories of course!
J. Crew is offering 40% off everything on their site (including sale) with code GETAWAY, so yeah – start here!! I love their tanks for summer, but right now I’m in love with their dresses. This simple striped, cotton dress is everything you want on a hot summer day when you aren’t in the pool! Need to dress up, just a little? This thin striped, yellow dress is cute and it looks so comfortable. It’d be great with white or camel brown shoes/accessories! And if you need a slightly more tailored look, this dress has perfect details, a flattering shape, and comes in three great colors!
2. Eddie Bauer
Eddie Bauer is offering 50% off everything with code HONOR50. No, that wasn’t a typo. 50%!! I love tanks and dresses from Eddie Bauer, but they also have great outdoor gear for men and women! No surprise the maxi dress I linked to on Monday is at the top of my list – I think in grey! But then there’s this shirtdress that’s moisture wicking and has sun protection, so…. Oh, and this packable (i.e. doesn’t wrinkle easily) sleeveless top – in three perfect colors for summer!!!
Nordstrom’s Half Yearly Sale is also going on – yeah, basically heaven on earth (it’s almost as wonderful as their Anniversary Sale in July). You can spend the whole day scrolling through great finds (and some interesting pieces of course), but here are three fun accessories to make this summer adorably memorable! A fun pair of sunnies with a fun pop of print you’ll love; the basic but always perfect straw hat that will look good with just about everything this summer while protecting you from the sun; and this colorfully striped, cotton tote that will hold everything you need on the daily this summer (including that bottle of water I know you’re drinking)!
4. Ann Taylor
Ann Taylor is great for those time when you need to dress up a bit, but still want to be perfectly happy! Ann Taylor is offering 40% off everything this weekend with code SOREADY. For starters, this floral lace tank is so chic but looks perfect for warm days. This embroidered maxi skirt would be great with a tank top and you could easily add a blazer to make it look more sophisticated! And then I’m totally smitten with these vintage floral shorts. They’re adorable and might get my to wear shorts outside of my house more often!!
5. West Elm
Ok. Now that you’re all dressed with these great Memorial Day sales, let’s add some fun pieces for al fresco dining from West Elm. I’m OBSESSED with eating outside whenever we can in the summer. It’s little things that make al fresco eating more fun and, frankly, easier! First things first. Because ice melts in the heat, these stainless steel ice cubes with keep drinks cold without watering them down! These fun, dishwasher-safe dishes are great for moving in and out doors without worrying about your dishware. The variety of colors makes matching unnecessary and therefore so much easier! And finally, add a pop of color (and some cushion) to your seating with these colorblocked pillows available in a fun mix of colors!
