4th of July Sale Guide

Happy 4th of July! Whether you’re having a stay cation to enjoy the holiday or adventured out to the beach or lake I hope you find time to get your inboxes to zero, unplug, and recharge!

Before we left for our trip I took a quick snapshot of what I packed, mostly casual outfits I could coordinate in different ways. I mixed up some of my older pieces with new and chose sandals that I could mix and match to keep my packing light and easy.

Cozy as a Teddy

If there’s one piece in my closet from fall I’ve been able to wear into winter and dress up or down it’s this teddy bear jacket. I took a chance and ordered this for a little over sized look and also didn’t want to splurge on something that is just a seasonal fad. I finally found this one from Shein and the quality and warmth is ah-mazing ! I’ve received so many compliments on it and it’s so reasonably priced at $33 right now! 

It also comes in a ton of colors, I went with the true copper teddy bear like color. It’s a golden brown. There’s a bunch of others at similar price points and styles on their site too. I’m 5’10” and this jacket was long in the arms and not too short in the waist. I don’t like anything that cuts into my torso so this length was great. 

I also like this version that is a little longer and more of my usual style for a coat. My denim are an older pair with gold button details but I found some similar pairs that fit this look. I was laughing so hard during these photos because it was freezing up on our roof and super windy for photos but we went with it!  I love looking at the pool on the roof top across the way and still plotting my plan to make my way over there this summer... if summer ever makes it way to the east coast again. 

Hope everyone is ready for the 3 day weekend! We’re doing a little weekend escape to D.C. to visit some family and have dinner planned at my favorite restaurant!

November Sales

There’s some really great sales this month leading into the holiday season so I’ll be rounding up some of my top pics that are versatile for yourself or would make for a great gift. I’m always eyeing something that can be personalized or made practical enough for whomever you have on your shopping list.

I’ve been really loving cozy fleece pullovers, especially on weekends and during errands. I can’t ever get enough of over the knee boots since they’re not just fashionable but for myself, they keep my legs warm! It’s always hard for me to find a pair that will stay up on my thin calves and are tall enough for my longer legs (human giraffe over here) so when I find a pair that works I can’t hold back.

Living in NYC I literally am walking every day all day so finding shoes that are comfortable, yet fashionable are always on my radar. I’m careful of the ones I splurge on and try to wear them only for date nights or special occasions. I feel like I go through shoes so quick here but really try to weatherproof the winter ones. This Marc Fisher pair are a great quality but still less than the Stuart Weitzman style (which is the only kind that stay up! :( and I love the shape of the toe and the colors it comes in.

This season I’ve seen some of my long term favorite sweaters marked down especially over the holidays and the softer the sweater and the longer the tunic are perfect for me! This cashmere one I have LOVED for so long and was excited to see it on sale. So much so I have it in my shopping cart and debating a neutral or pop of color again. It is super soft & warm without being too heavy and the perfect length for leggings. I have a bright magenta one I’m wearing here from a few years ago. If you take good care of the cashmere, especially when packing away seasonal clothes it will last. The Laundress shampoo for this fabric works so well too.

My new obsession for a little statement coat for winter that’s a less traditional is this lavender wrap coat! I LOVE the color because it stands out from my other winter neutrals and I was able to find it marked down both here and here. It runs true to size and the color is much richer in person with a long length. Also on sale is this pear & grey version that I think is gorgeous and would be perfect for dressing up a simple outfit or pairing with a dress.

Many of the sales are offering up to 40% off! Much of which will most likely be further marked down for Black Friday. So book mark this post so you can retrieve it quickly while shopping. Be sure to click on the different photos in the widget below for details one each sale. Happy Shopping!
