Labor Day Sale picks from a few of our favorite brands
My favorite kind of sales are those that include new season items. Here are a few of my picks to take you through fall in style…

J.Crew, back with a fresh perspective
J.Crew has always been a reliable source for basic pieces. But I have to admit, I was also a fan of the quirky energy that Jenna Lyons brought to the brand during her tenure. Even though I didn’t buy the more “out there” pieces (sequins, feathers, tulle) the styling inspired me to mix things up a little. Their collections have felt a little…pedestrian in the last few seasons. But the new head of women’s design, Olympia Gayot has really brought some freshness and life back to the brand, without sacrificing wearability.
My J.Crew picks
Anyhow, J.Crew has a promotion going…30% off your purchase and and extra 50% off sale styles with code LONGWKND. Here are a few more of my picks, some of which may have found their way into my cart… 😉
I ordered this little merino wool cardigan the minute it came online, and it’s SO good! I’ve actually worn it out a couple of times on cooler evenings. It’s a great piece for travel too! If leopard isn’t your thing, it’s also offered in a zebra print and several solid colors. Sizes XX-Small to 3X.
I’ve had a teddy jacket on my wish list for a few years now, and was so excited to see that this one is offered in Petite as well as regular sizes. The sleeves are actually the right length! It’s also offered in an ivory color with taupe piping. Sizes XX-Small to XX-Large. In our mild climate, I’ll be able to wear this through winter.
This little crepe top can be a great dress-up-dress-down option. It’s offered in XX-Small to 3X, in four colors. This emerald green is great for most Winters, and the Frosty Lavender should work most Summers.
👉 Another color note: the color “Kelly Green” is a true Winter emerald, not a Spring green.
More Labor Day Sale picks
Jenni Kayne has 20% off sitewide with code LDW20. My favorite cotton fisherman sweater is included in the promotion. I’m eyeing the Dark Camel color, but this “Ink” color shown above is great blue for you Autumns. Some colors are available to size 3X.
Talbot’s is a great size-inclusive source of classic styles, and they currently have 25% off new & full-price styles. It doesn’t get more classic than a good peacoat, and this one is a cotton blend, so perfect for transitional season wear (or if you’re allergic to wool). It’s offered in Misses, Petite, Plus, and Plus Petite sizes.
And one more from Madewell, where new items are 30% off and sale items are an extra 40% off with code LONGWEEKEND. This knit corduroy blazer looks like a perfect marriage of slouchy and structured. It’s available in both Standard and Plus sizes, in 2 colors. This blue looks like it would work for you Summers….
