Sale Picks (See Jane Shop)

It's that time of year again.  If you're familiar with the retail cycle, you might notice that once all the spring apparel goes on sale, you can actually wear it if you live in a chilly climate.  It's pretty much the only advantage that comes along with a chilly climate in May.  (Spring in Chicago/midwest has been downright arctic.)

The best thing about the Nordstrom Half Yearly sale is that it's an opportunity to buy the fancy brands that you know and love at a discounted price.  This is the time when I buy from the Via C (sale here) and Individualist department (sale here).

This Sea dress is linen and I think I will wear it all summer (bought it!).
How cute would this The Great. white top be with white jeans?
This Kooples red, floral dress is perfect for showers and weddings this summer.
How cute would these Apiece Apart shorts be with a black tank?
This Sea top would be amazing with jean shorts and sandals.
Veda rarely goes on sale and this jacket is perfect for now AND for fall - grab it!

Official Preppy Handbook (See Jane Wear)

Two Penny Blue blazer (similar), old H&M striped tee (similar), 3x1 jeans, DSW shoes (similar), Serpui Marie clutch (look for less)
Warm weather brings out the prepster in me.  Reds, whites, blues, and stripes?  Give it all to me.  It's really my fail-safe combination, though, and navy is my 'black' in the summertime.  What's your go-to summer color combo?

Also, have you noticed a trend in my spring wear?  Blazers.  Here's a few to start with:

navy scalloped blazer
coral collarless blazer
gingham blazer
dotten linen blazer

Hope you all had a great week.  Here in Chicago, we were able to enjoy some beautiful summer weather, although I had a dream last night that it snowed and I wouldn't put it past this place.  I'm crossing my fingers that this weather sticks!

Here's a recap of my outfits over the past few weeks that I posted on Instagram but didn't make it on the blog (I can't deal with Instagram right now....I feel like I'm missing everyone's posts lately)`.  A few highlights: I found my flares in the depths of my closet (win! shop more flares here) and these jeans are now on sale for $30!
