Just in time for warmer weather, my sale picks

24 total views

The Memorial Day Sales are already up and running, and I’ve been perusing some of your favorite brands and mine. If you’re looking to update your summer wardrobe, here are a few of my Memorial Day sale picks (and yes, a few things I bought too…)

My picks from the Memorial Day sales (most are size-inclusive!)

Madewell linen blend popover stripe shirt.

This breezy, subtly striped linen-blend popover top (in 3 colors) is available in Misses and Plus sizes. It’s 25% off with code LONGWEEKEND.

J.Crew packable raffia straw hat.

I’m very tempted by this packable raffia hat, available in 2 sizes. It’s 30% off with code SUMMER.

Madewell Marianna long puff sleeve dress in faded shale. in

I’ve been getting lots of requests to show more midi- and maxi-length dresses, so have been keeping my eyes open. This easy cotton dress is available in Misses, Petite, and Plus sizes, and two colors. It’s currently 25% off with code LONGWEEKEND. (This color looks online to be in the softer end of the Autumn palette, but I haven’t yet seen it in person.)

J.Crew slub cotton t-shirt dress.

Add a little jacket, cardigan, or wrap, and this slub cotton dress can go from poolside to dinner. It’s available in 4 colors, sizes XX-Small to 2X, and is 30% off with code SUMMER. (This coral color could work for both Spring and Autumn palettes…)

Talbot's tiered maxi-dress watercolor print.

It’s currently hard to find maxi-length dresses that aren’t tiered and/or billowy. This one is tiered, but not too “prairie,” available in Misses, Petite, and Plus sizes. This lavender color could work for you Summers; there’s also an aqua color offered that looks Spring to me. It’s 30% off (no code needed).

Boden jersey maxi skirt palm tree print

If you’re a Winter, there’s no shortage of black dresses, but here’s a fun print skirt in jersey that’s not tiered, and it has pockets! It’s currently 15% off, and available in sizes 2-16/18. (Other solid colors too, and also some sizes in Petite.)

Madewell fisherman sandals brown.

I’ve been on the hunt for a pair of closed-toe fisherman sandals that aren’t too clunky looking. These have potential, and I’ve ordered a couple of sizes to try. 25% off with code LONGWEEKEND. More sandals HERE.

J.Crew linen blend seaside pants in stripe.

These linen-blend pants are a nice weight, and available in several colors in Misses (XX-Small to 3X), Petite and Tall sizes. I ordered the Almond Biscotti, but these stripes are fun too (and very CG…) 30% off with code SUMMER.

J.Crew linen tank top with olive pants and yellow knot bag.

I like to have a couple of tank tops on hand for layering, or wearing on their own when it’s sweltering. These linen “muscle” tanks have enough coverage on the shoulders to avoid peek-a-boo bra straps. Several colors available in sizes XX-Small to 3X. Also 30% off with code SUMMER.

I also really like the linen tees, HERE and HERE. They do run large, so I suggest sizing down.

Nutribullet pro 900-watt blender on sale.

And what would summer be without smoothies? My cheapie “bullet” blender just threw in the towel, so I decided to take advantage of the sale price and sprung for one of these. (A good friend has one and gives it two thumbs up…) Take an extra 10% off the sale price with code MEMORIALDAY.
