Memorial Day Sales


I hope everyone is having a safe and happy holiday! On this day we remember the many that paid the ultimate sacrifice for freedom, while also honoring all the brave women and men out there who fight for it each day. Holidays like these are a nice reminder to be grateful, as well as a way to come together with loved ones. The latter half of that statement may not necessarily be the case this year, as MDW looks a bit different, but we can still connect from afar. 

One area that is certainly consistent with previous years are the sales. Loads of stores have great deals going on and items have been selling out fast. I thought I'd do a round up of some favorite stores I shopped and products I've scouted:

J. Crew (40%-60%)
This classic striped number is already in my closet; however I snagged one for my mom to gift. It is the perfect top for more in-between weather and cooler summer days. I get francophile preppy vibes from it, which I love. Definitely a staple piece!

This dress made it to my cart today, as it was on 60%! It comes in several colors, but I opted for the white one for a light and airy look. I love the shape, neckline, and length to this. I don't have anything like it in my wardrobe, so I'm very excited to have something a bit different that will likely be ideal for day to evening wear.

These headbands are too cute! While I won't be purchasing one, as I know how to DIY them, I can appreciate these little accessories. In case you'd like to make your own (it's pretty simple), check out how to DIY a knotted headband here!

Jack Rogers (Up to 75% off)
Similar to Hunter Boots, I refuse to buy this footwear without a sale. With the deals going on today, I couldn't help but treat myself to a pair, though. I opted for a plain white pair and went to add a blue gingham pair to my cart, but sadly they were sold out early this morning. Keeping my eyes peeled, though!

LOFT (50%-75% off)
Memorial Day Weekend is the kick off to summer in my eyes, which means it's time to bring out the white denim! Despite the old adage saying not to wear white pants after Labor Day, I still do year-round, however they definitely are a more frequently worn item in the summer. LOFT has some of my favorites as they are comfortable and specific to your shape. This brand offers a modern, more straight fit and curvy for us curvier gals. Paired with a a petite cut, as I like my pants hitting at my ankles, they are perfect!

Old Navy (50% off swim, etc)
This swimsuit was sadly sold out. I prefer one piece or high wasted swimsuits, particularly the ones from Old Navy, so this one would have been perfect. The seersucker print is so stinkin' cute, but this will be another item I'll keep my eyes peeled for.

Draper James (Extra 40% off sale styles)
How adorable is this straw bag?! These very natural sorts of bags have been popular the last few years, and I love it. I do have a similar one from Amazon already, so this didn't make it into my cart, but thought I'd share it anyway. This brand doesn't have the best sale going on today, but I've heard nothing but good things about the quality. Plus, the designs are so pretty! 

Gal Meets Glam (Items at $50, $75, $100)
Yet another product I'm coveting, but not purchasing. All of the clothes from this brand are so cute and classy, but the prices are a bit steep for my budget. Only some items are on sale, which puts those at a slightly better price point, but I wasn't ready to hit the "pay now" button. Maybe next time!

Have you shopped any Memorial Day sales? What stores?


Sincerely,
