memorialdaysales2016Hello Friends! I don’t normally do sales posts, but there are so many good ones going one this weekend that I’m taking advantage myself. Like a good blogger, I may as well let YOU know about them too!

When sales are this good, I stock up on items for the upcoming season or purchase something that I wanted to try but didn’t want to shell out the big bucks i.e. something trendy.

THE SALE Rx: Give your wallet and bank account a break and take advantage of the sales going on today!

It’s that time at NORDIES!! // Everyone LOVES Nordstrom, and they are having their Half Yearly Sale!  They have SO MANY good deals going on right now whether you want to get something for now OR later. You know I’m a huge fan of the off-the-shoulder trend, and I’ve been eyeing this off-the-shoulder bell sleeved romper forever! If you’ve wanted to try the button-front skirt, now is the time to buy. I recently ordered these marble cat-eye sunglasses (although they’re not on sale) for $50. Now if designer is your thing, they have some amazing deals. When would you find Valentino Rockstuds for 40% off?! It’s a total splurge, but this Chloe Jane fringe bag is on sale. I’m a sucker for tassels! I ADORE these Moschino “SHOP” earrings… so reminiscent of that chunky 90s jewelry. Don’t forget about the upcoming Fall. There are some cute faux fur jackets on major sale. I specifically LOVE this teddy bear coat!

BARNEYS // Barneys designer sale just launched. This is the time that I stock up on amazing shoes and Isabel Marant ANYTHING! It has so many ruffles, but I’m obsessed with this Isabel Marant Etoile top. These Aquazzura Pina Colada heels are so wacky, but I can’t stop smiling when I see them! I cannot decide between this Ulla Johnson peasant dress, eyelet midi dress, or macrame dress. All three are perfect for Summer Holiday! I’m such a hat person and looking for any excuse to get this white fedora.

MODA OPERANDI // Oh my gosh, this place gets me into BIG TIME trouble. They have such beautifully curated pieces up to 50% off. This is where I scored my Delpozo bow heels on sale. They have quite a few cute separates on sale like this Alice McCall ruffle top, Suno eyelet culottes and bell sleeved tunic. Of course, I found another pair of heels that needs to #getinmycloset STAT… these Paula Cademartori scalloped cork sandals. BTW, if you want to get your hands on a pair of Oscar de la Renta tassel earrings, they have quite a few on sale.

ECO-FRIENDLY // I’m trying to change our lifestyle to be more green and eco-friendly, so I wanted to mention these options for those of you looking for the same thing! ZADY isn’t advertising, but they have quite a few basics on sale that would be a welcome addition for your closet. This tux shirt is great for the warmer months, and I’m IN LOVE with this reversible wool and down coat for Winter. EVERLANE doesn’t have sales per se but offer a cool option to “choose what you pay” when they have surplus stock. This black silk tank, slim navy trousers, and pocket tee are a few examples. They have SO MANY great basics! CUYANA sells beautiful elevated basics, and I really want this silk slip dress for summer. I’ve been eyeing this summer hat too (you know how I am about hats)! Seriously, this silk open back top will likely be my next purchase. It’s so dreamy!

When your favorite green beauty store is moving and offers up to 40% off, then you SHOP! The sale at SPIRIT BEAUTY LOUNGE ends on Monday (today) so don’t miss out! BTW, this is not listed on their site! Use code: ENJOYONUS (for incremental savings of up to $60 off when you spend $150).

A few of my green beauty faves are RMS Beauty Lip2Cheek AND the nail polish in Diabolique, Kjaer Weis cream foundation (I use Just Sheer), KJ eyeshadow in Onyx and Magnetic, ILIA lip conditioner in Arabian Nights.

Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend! My cousins were in town, and we had a blast hanging out. Little M is worn out, in a good way. Then, we also got some more family time when Mr. S’s family came over for dinner last night. What is everyone up to today?

Rxoxo, Sam

    Sounds like you have a lovely long weekend with family Sam!

    Enjoy shopping the sales! I haven’t bought anything as I bought a lot this month and need to be easier on the wallet for a bit, haha!

      Oh good for you Mica! I actually bought some jewelry from my friend and a tassel to go on a bag… but I ran out of time and didn’t make any BIG purchases. I will probably get that hat and top from Cuyana soon!

      Love the way you wore the bag 2 different ways, especially with that Kimono jacket!
