Taking Advantage of Summer Sales

It is August. How the heck did that happen?? Summer is almost over and before you know it we will be back in sweaters and boots. We will talk transitioning to fall in a few weeks, but for now I want to hold on to summer just a little bit longer. This is the best month to take advantage of summer clearance. Here are a few of my picks to wind down the summer.

1. Drawstring Dress

This is the perfect summer casual dress and could double as a swim cover-up. You could dress it up with a skinny belt and a statement necklace.

2. Maxi Dress

Have you bought yourself a maxi yet? If you are still nervous about the trend this price point is the perfect way to dip your toes in the water. I am currently having a love affair with navy so this one caught my eye.

3. Tote


I just got a new purse and Lily immediately said “That purse is so boring!!” I think this one might impress her a little bit more.

4. LBD


Every woman needs a little black dress. This one is classic but flirty. It was part of the collaboration with Kate Young and I think it is perfect.

5. Baseball Tee

I am also a firm believer that everyone should own a baseball tee. I wear mine in the summer on cool days and then all the rest of the year with jeans. A definite fave of mine.

6. Chambray Shirt


You do have a chambray shirt right. How many times do I have to tell you they are a  “must have” before you get one. I like the western detailing on this one and the two I have are rather dark. Dare I add a third chambray to my collection?

7. Denim Jacket

Another must have in any wardrobe. The perfect item to transition your wardrobe from summer to fall. I wear mine all. the. time.

8. Owl Tee

One would think I would get over the owl thing. But I just can’t get enough. This is adorable.

9. Military Jacket

I have been on the hunt for a military jacket for a few years now. They always seem too boxy and unflattering. I love the nipped waist on this one.

10. Sundress

teal and yellow

You might recall I have this dress back from my Blissdom Land’s End wardrobe. It is so flattering and can easily transition with a cardigan. It is majorly marked down and now is the perfect time to snatch it up!


  1. Annalyn’s new school’s mascot is the owl. I tried so hard to get her to pick an owl shirt when we went school clothes shopping. She didn’t cooperate. Boo.
