Labor Day Sales & Steals

Happy Friday! I'm getting a head start on my Labor Day Weekend sales today so I can keep up with the festivities at home before I go back to school Tuesday! It's a bittersweet feeling, but it's about time to head back now and getting new clothes in definitely sweetens the deal! Shop some of my favorite labor day sales and pieces below:

Club Monaco is having a killer sale right now with an extra 40% sale items and 50% off clearance pieces with code: HEYFALL. I've been waiting to get these pants and now I'm definitely thinking about biting the bullet and purchasing them! I mean with an extra 50%, how could I not?

Get an extra 30% off at Madewell with code: YESYES. I'm thinking about getting this adorable graphic tee I featured back in this post, it's just too cute to pass up at this price!

Save an extra 20-60% at Bloomingdales this weekend with code: BIG20! My favorites are this Marc coat and this Alice + Olivia skirt!

Shopbop has up to 70% off regular prices and this adorable blouse is calling my name! (:

J. Crew Factory is having an extra 40-60% off everything and I am loving all of their new sweaters for Fall!

Nordstrom is having an up to 40% off clearance sale until Sept 7! I've had my eye on this Chelsea sweater and these FRAME jeans!

Happy shopping and early Labor Day! (:

White Haute Summer

Ralph Lauren Button Down (similar for less here) / Joie White Dress (similar style here and skirt version here) / Betseyville Cat Eye Sunglasses (old, similar here) / MIA Thong Sandals (old, similar here) / OPI Nail Polish

Happy Hump-day!

Lately, I have been wearing A LOT of white. Maybe due to the fact that I'm trying to get in as much of it as I can before Labor Day (not that I actually listen to that old fashion wise tale), or maybe because it's just a timeless summer color, but either way I've always loved the simplicity of a monochromatic look; it makes for an elegant yet understated look that I can't seem to get any other way. This Joie Dress I picked up from Nordstrom Rack a few weeks ago is just that - elegant, yet understated - and I absolutely love it. I've been wearing it just about everywhere with just about everything! It's such a timeless piece, and hardly an investment for something I know will last me for years. I've been pairing it with button downs like in this look, or, on cooler days, with cardigans and blazers to take me from day to night. The possibilities are really endless with the perfect little white dress!

What A Tee's

When the school year swings back around, I always try to get my closet game in check - but I'd be lying to you if I told you that I've never tried to take the easy way out and add comfort to the mix of style. I find that one of the best single pieces I can add to my closet for low-key comfort and style are graphic tee shirt's - and, due to that fact, I usually end up buying them in bulk. I can't help it! I love fungraphic tee's (and tee's in general) for not only their comfort and added edge when they have fun catch phrases, but also their versatility. You can pair one with a skirt and blazer for a polished look, or your favorite jeans and slip-ons for a laid back, errands-running one. The possibilities are endless! It makes for a great look, whether I'm giving a presentation or taking an exam I always seem effortlessly put together. So, comfortable and cute? That's a win-win in my book.
