Must Buy

Just had to share this "must buy" with you guys today. Celine opticals are some of my favorites out there, but their $350+ price tag keeps them from making too many appearances on this blog. But these classic round sunnies in a transparent blush color are on sale at T.J.Maxx for $79! Get them before they're gone!

Celine "Charline" Round Sunglasses: $79

Sandal Sale

Shoes are the one thing I tend to stock up on during end of season mega sales. Shoes wear SO hard when you live in the city, so I tend to go through sandals in a single season. Luckily, I found a huge selection of my favorite brand Sol Sana at 6pm.com. ALL are at least 60% off, under $50 and ship free when you buy 2 or more. 

I can't wait to remember I bought these next year!

Candy Stripes

Had to share this fabulous dress that checks all of my warm weather boxes- linen, stripes, off the shoulder, ruffle. Oh, and it's still full price on Shopbop and Nordstrom. But don't worry I found it for $29 on Lulus. AND if you sign up for emails it's an extra 10% off. You're welcome! 

Linen

I've been a huge fan of LA brand Reformation since the label launched in 2012. Their easy, feminine pieces are classic and timeless, while still managing to look completely "right now." But let's be real, not everyone can afford the $200+ price tag.

But other retailers are taking notice. Natural materials (think linen and cotton blends) have been taking over along with organic-looking colors and stripes. 

 I will always love embroidery and boho prints, but there's also something appealing about throwing something on without having to think in 90 degree heat and looking like you just strolled in off the Riviera. 

Hint: just add espadrilles and a handmade accessory from previous 2 posts!

For espadrilles!

There's no other shoe that completes a summer look like the espadrille. Lace-up, platform, or (my new fave) mule, you just can't go wrong.

Higher and Higher

By now I've gotten rid of almost all of my low-mid rise jeans. There's something about high waisted jeans that feels so right these days. Maybe it's about my age and wanting a little more coverage, but I'm finding a higher rise is so much more flattering. 

I've picked up a few from Citizens of Humanity on MAJOR sale but I'm also loving these J Brand options I've been checking out from good old T.J. Maxx

Will you be trading in your jeans too??

Spring is Coming

I know, I know. The east coast is predicted to get 12-18" this week, a week before the official first day of spring. But I swear, sandal weather is coming. 

I've been wearing Australian brand Sol Sana for years. Well made, classic silhouettes translate to pieces you'll be wearing for seasons to come. 

I recently picked up a few goodies via 6pm.com and just had to share the wealth. These are lined up in my closet just waiting for that first 65 degree day!

Black Friday Continues

Black Friday isn't over yet! There are still plenty of great deals to be had around the web and I'm rounding up some of the best shoe buys below. Who wouldn't get excited about boots at over 90% off? In fact, if you're interested in revamping your boot collection, you could get all 8 pairs of shoes below for $184 (!!!)

I'm mostly featuring Matisse shoes from Shoemetro below. Well made with classic western details and something unexpected, they've been a wardrobe staple of mine for a long time. Sold at Free People, Nordstrom, and Nastygal, they're a cool girl go-to.

Westward Leaning

If you know me at all, you'll know how much I love a good Western bootie. Part Erin Wasson and part Ralph Lauren, this style with its pointy toes, seaming and embroidery give that perfect masculine edge to every look. I fell in love with these Dolce Vita booties earlier in the season via Nordstrom (seen here and here), but the $160+ price tag had me thinking twice about even dreaming of buying them. 

Thank goodness for TJMaxx! I recently found two of my favorite pairs for $59! Get them while you still can. 

 
Dolce Vita "Seth" booties- $59.99 (was $180)

Spanish Soles

Espadrilles are having a big moment this season.  The resurgence of the seasonal fave is in part because of the insane popularity of these Aquazzura shoes which have inspired a bevy of knock-offs. While I usually stick to the classic Soludos Dali, I've been longing for something more feminine with a platform. 

Enter these babies from Splendid. With ankle ties and rustic stripes they'll add the perfect South of France vibe to denim and white looks all summer long.

Here you can stock up on great staples (or holiday gifts!) like jeans, sweaters, outerwear and flannels. And if you don't live in LA you can still get plenty of wear out of (hello polar vortex!) them right this second.

Saturday Edit

One of the first rounds of fall clearance is happening and there are some major goodies to be had. As per usual I'm itching to add some new sunnies and booties to the mix.

But hands-down the best deal this week is the Cynthia Vincent drape cardi in this post. It's everything; a heavy weight wool-blend, ombre, a great ikat pattern.. and more than 90% off! I can't wait to add it to my fall rotation.

When H&M's sales are good, they're good. There's a lot of summer clearance in the mix, so if you're like me and completely over summer, you won't be interested in most of it.  But there are a few fall gems that will easily mix into your transitional wardrobe. 
 

H&M Trend silk blouse- $19.99 (was $59.99)  Love the dark 70's YSL vibe here. Such a cool take on boho for fall.

Daily Deal featuring Maison Scotch

Last year, I was on the hunt for the perfect seasonless army jacket. After over a year of deliberation, I finally landed here. But if the $120 price tag scares you, this one from Maison Scotch via TJMaxx could be the one. Their outerwear runs anywhere from $250-300, but this workhorse of a jacket is only $49.99! And today, TJMaxx is offering free shipping on all orders. This price is so good, I'm tempted to buy a back-up!

Meet Romwe

I discovered Chinese fast fashion clothing site Romwe a few weeks ago while shopping for work. What struck me at first was (obviously) the prices.They seem to knock-off a lot of Free People and brands from Revolve and price them anywhere from $11-$25. The descriptions are terrible- they label almost all of the fabric content as polyester even when it's cotton or rayon, but I thought it worth a try and ordered a few things. The results? Pretty great! I ordered the denim and white dresses below and think were a great deal for the price. The fabric is surprisingly nice and I got a ton of complements. Look, these aren't investment pieces. But if you're like me and like to have some not-too-precious casual items for summer weekends and work days (ie things you don't mind sweating in and sitting on the subway in), you can find some good deals here. Even better, they give new members a coupon code for an even deeper discount on your first order (an extra 15%-20% off)!

Check out my picks and happy shopping!

This or That?

Trolling in the juniors section on tjmaxx.com recently, I saw a few familiar faces from Urban Outfitters. Yes, these items are from last year, but one of them I actually missed out on during their big summer sale back in July. They're still on trend, still right, and yes I still want them. It's interesting to see the Urban styling vs. the TJMaxx styling (or lack there of). The garments are almost unrecognizable between the two sites. Below the Urban Outfitters' versions. Click through to the steals at TJMaxx.
