It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year (See Jane Bargain)

Summer may be in full force to the average folk, but in the retail world, fall apparel is slowing starting to crowd the racks.  Soon enough, they'll be cranking up the AC in Bloomingdales, so you can justify buying that new Vince sweater in late July (I'm onto you, retailers).  Try and resist the flawless styling of fall outfits until it really starts to get chilly (late September for the midwest and east coast, alike).  I know it's difficult--trust me.  When I was living in NYC, I went on a cashmere sweater binge on Labor Day, only to find the sweaters were slightly marked down when I stared to actually wear them.

Take advantage of the summer sales as of late.  (Upwards of 70% off and beyond!)  Try to invest in pieces that you'll not only wear the rest of the summer, but next year as well (ahem, bathing suits).  It's like Christmas in July!

Like you need a reason for another LBD.



I can't wait to wear this gauzy top, knotted, while walking around Rome next month.



$29 + 20% off = score of the summer.


Do you love summer sales as much as I do?

Yes, Yes and Yes!!! I couldn't agree more. How many times I've scored summer deals and was able to wear them into fall or even the following summer.

GF how about those retailers and the AC when fall stuff comes out?? That ain't right. You walk out of the store and into a heatwave that immediately results in buyer's remorse. not pretty

I love the gauzy top. I bought a similar one at Madewell. Initially, I just bought it because it was on sale and I lack white pieces in my wardrobe, but now that I own it I CANNOT stop wearing it.

Oooh, I just got those J.Crew studs for that price a few weeks ago -- I wear them all the time! I agree; summer sales are the BEST.

Love that guazy top! I so plan on taking full advantage of the summer sales this weekend. I try to get pieces that can transition into fall.
BTW, that F21 is open until 2 in the morning! Craziness!
