I’m shameless about my love of sales. I always try to capitalize on the season’s events and holidays for stretching my spending budget to the max. I keep items in my closet for at least a few years so even when it’s an end-of-season sale I’m still sure to hit it up; besides that, Texas weather is unpredictable so I use the word ‘season’ lightly, knowing that something I buy in summer may well be brought out on a warm 80* January day.
J. Crew and LOFT both recently had fantastic summer sales with steep discounts (like, 40% off already-discounted prices!) and I took the opportunity to grab a few things that will last me through the end of summer and even carry me through fall. This strappy cami is perfect for the hot days right now and is also a staple piece for layering under light jackets in cooler weather. I also love this knit kimono cardigan, which I bought as a layer to wear in my office right now and to keep the chill off when the evening temps start to drop.
This floral scarf was another item I snagged in the sales and was under $20. I love tying it as an accessory around my bags since it’s too hot to wear right now, and it will be perfect for wrapping or draping around my shoulders next season; not to mention the floral pattern is beautiful and the colors aren’t too bright to be out of place with the more subdued shades of fall. Finally, I got these cuffed denim shorts and leather slides which I’ll be wearing for several more months until the temperatures are much cooler.
Although the sales have ended, a few of these items are still discounted! And don’t forget about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale which is still going on until August 8th. I headed there on Saturday after we took these pictures and wished I had unlimited funds! A couple pieces I couldn’t pass up were this burgundy sleeveless belted coat and this pink panel duster coat. I’d love to hear if you’ve gotten anything from the sale!
