I hope everybody is having a wonderful Memorial Day weekend with your family and friends. My family is so grateful for all of the men and women in uniform (past and present) who have made such enormous sacrifices for our freedom. We will be praying today for all of the families who have lost someone dear to them. We are forever thankful for their service.
BEST OF THE BEST SALE PICKS
First of all, if you are just now getting to the blog on Tuesday…. I’ve got GREAT NEWS for you!
Almost everything in today’s post (with the exception of the Kendra Scott jewelry) is STILL ON SALE!!!
As you know, all retailers always have huge sales on Memorial Days, so I scoured some of our favorite spots to find the best sale picks around. I hope it’s sunny today and everybody is outside enjoying the beautiful weather, but when I was writing this post, the forecast called for rain. Lots of rain. So if you are stuck inside, I’m hoping my guide will be helpful!
LOFT SALE PICKS
Ladies! LOFT is having a pretty EPIC SALE today! Everything is 50% OFF….but you could get up to 70% OFF if you buy up to 4 items and if some of those items are already on sale (and some of the items I highlight today qualify)! Code: SUMMER
These first 4 outfits highlight LOFT pieces, but the jewelry sprinkled in is also ON SALE!
I’m in love with this first outfit. Seriously, how cute are the shorts.
OH…AND GET THIS…the sunglasses that I’m wearing in ALL of today’s outfits that have been out of stock for a sweet forever? WELL. They are BACK IN STOCK and they are 15% OFF right now when you buy 2! They are the best and my most favorite sunglasses I have ever owned. I love the shape, they don’t hurt my head at all, and they are very sturdy!
This jacket is the one I named a MUST HAVE like 6 years ago and it’s still going strong. It’s not from LOFT, but it is ON SALE! FOR 30% OFF! If you don’t have, I’m begging you to get it.
My jewelry is also ON SALE! Kendra Scott is 20% OFF the entire site, but it ends today. This little necklace duo is one I’ve been wearing non stop for the past several weeks. I love the look with these two necklaces layered together. Both necklaces, the statement earrings, and the gorgeous bracelet are all 20% OFF. Being a Kendra Scott ambassador, they send me product every month, and this month I got this stunner of a bracelet (you’ll see a better picture later in the pictures with the blue jumpsuit).
Now let’s talk about the floral tie waist shorts .
And they are on sale and an additional 50% OFF right now (and maybe 70% OFF depending on how much is in your cart).
First of all, they are incredibly comfortable. They have an elastic waist (praise hands for no buttons or zippers right now), and I love how feminine and flirty they are. The colors are so pretty, the pattern is adorable, and they are very flattering.
For size reference, I’m wearing regular smalls in the shorts. I’m 5’4″, but with relatively long legs for my height.
So in this next outfit, all I changed up was the skirt. That’s right, besides the skirt, the above outfit includes all of the exact same pieces.
See? You probably need the jewelry and the jacket.
The striped midi skirt also has an elastic waist. I love how vibrant the colors are and the stripes are playful! I’m wearing a medium petite and there’s quite a bit of extra room. I do like the length, but I’m thinking the petite small would be better on me, so I suggest sizing down. Again, I’m 5’4″.
It’s just a fun outfit!
You saw this outfit last week, and the peplum and cardi are both 50% OFF right now. And here I am wearing the same necklace duo as in the pics above, but I switched out the statement hoops for the sea green studs. All 20% OFF right now!
Okay, one more LOFT outfit for y’all! This one is so me.
The sweater and the shorts are on sale at LOFT, but there are several other items on sale including the earrings, the tassel necklace, and the camo tote!
So, I’m not sure whether to be proud or shy about this next fact.
I now own this sweater in 3 colors. #iamgoingtogowithproud
The sweater is at least 50% OFF right now, but could be up to 70% OFF depending on what else is in your cart!
I bought it in store in hot pink and olive green a couple of months ago, and I’ve worn the absolute heck out of both of them. In fact, I’ve worn them so much that grabbing the white actually made sense because I know I’ll wear the heck out of it too. I’m already planning on styling it with the floral shorts above and my camo shorts. It will also be cute with distressed denim, lots of gold jewelry, and a golden tan (a fake tan of course). Ha! For size reference, I like the medium for a relaxed fit.
It’s already on sale, and today it’s an additional 50% OFF the sale price.
Click HERE to see the hot pink on me.
Click HERE to see the olive green on me.
Use the code MEMORIALDAY for 30% OFF the necklace.
The denim shorts are FABULOUS. And right now they are 50% OFF!
There are ONLY 4 sizes left, so I’m keeping my fingers cross that your size is available. There are mixed reviews on sizing, but I do suggest sizing up one. I’m in the 28s and really like the fit. I’m sure the 27s would have fit just fine, but I love how the 28s are very comfy and not tight at all. The denim is sooooooo soft and soooooooo stretchy.
Also, the color is fun and I really like the frayed hem.
Y’all know I love Barrington bags and have for over 5 years now.
Today you can use the code AMERICA for 15% OFF your order, and Barrington is donating an additional 5% to Feeding America! If you haven’t ever played around on the Barrington site, you really should take 5-10 minutes to do so today! Besides totes, they also have cross body bags, sunglasses cases, makeup bags, garment bags, etc. You can personalize everything and their pieces make EXCELLENT gifts.
Out of all of my Barrington bags, this camo tote is my favorite of all times. And the handles might look thin, but don’t let them fool you because they are incredibly sturdy. It will hold a laptop if traveling or if it’s your work bag. If just using it as a purse, you won’t believe how much it will hold. I also get frequent questions on if it’s heavy, and it’s not AT ALL! It’s incredibly lightweight (which I love).
NORDSTROM SALE PICKS
My favorite denim shorts are still on sale, but sadly they are just about sold out.
So let’s talk about the puff sleeve blouse. It’s 40% OFF today!
The sleeves are on trend without being totally overwhelming. I like a little puff sleeve, but I think a big puff sleeve makes me appear broader than I would like. The little pleats on the sleeves and the closer cut on the blouse make it very feminine and flattering. The material is soft and the olive plaid is pretty.
I really love this top.
OTHER NORDSTROM SALE PICS:
This Trina Turk swimsuit is 40% OFF! Love the red!
Click HERE for all Trina Turk on sale.
Everybody has been so sad that my new cognac Sam Edelman slides have been sold out, but these UGGs are very similar and ON SALE.
This ruffle jumpsuit is a new release, it’s DARLING, and it feels like I’m wearing pajamas! For size reference, I’m wearing a small and it’s still quite roomy. I would recommend sizing down.
It can be worn off or on the shoulder (see picture on site for how it looks on the shoulder) and I like it both ways. You could dress it down with flat sandals and a tote, or you could dress it up with wedges and bold jewelry!
So here’s what you need to know about the bracelet.
It’s expensive, but it’s GORGEOUS. And right now it’s 20% OFF! As I mentioned earlier, the Kendra Scott team sent it to me as part of my brand ambassadorship, and I was downright giddy when I opened the box! The reviews are mixed because it’s better on small wrists, but since I have a small wrist, I love the way it fits. It’s seriously a stunner and a very special piece.
I sure do wish I had an event to wear this too. #someday
And remember some Gibson items will be up to 75% OFF because you can use the MEMORIAL25 code on top of the already reduced prices!
One of MY VERY FAVORITE TOPS EVER is back and ON SALE!
I cannot stress enough how in love I am with this tee. I have it in 3 colors and wear all of them all the time. The red and blue one would be great for the 4th!
It’s the embroidered floral design that I flip over, but it’s in a reallllllllllly soft cotton instead of the stiff cotton that you usually see with these types of shirts. I’m telling you, it’s incredibly soft. And I love how it’s a super relaxed fit. The soft pleats under the embroidery work are so pretty, and they add femininity without adding any unnecessary bulk.
The classic black and white design will be a staple in my closet.
For size reference, I have some colors in a small and some in a medium. They both fit, the medium is obviously just a bit looser.
LOOK! HOW! DARLING!

I put this on social media last week, but this announcement definitely needed to be on the blog too…
The Glycolic Acid Peel Pads are BACK IN STOCK!
I added them into my weekly routine several months ago, and I think they are REALLY great. They sold out so quickly when they were first launched, and then sold out again after they were restocked. PEOPLE LOVE THEM, and I’m so happy they are finally back again.
So, what are they? Remember the stridex pads we all used as teenagers? Well these are the new and much improved version!
These pads boast a spa-strength treatment formula that helps to help dissolve skin-clogging dirt and debris. And listen to this… your skin’s natural renewal process will be enhanced as a result of the 10 percent blend of The Glycolic and Lactic Acids in the pads. The pads target fine lines, hyperpigmentation, imperfections and will reveal a fresher, brighter, more even complexion. YES, PLEASE!
I’m ALL ABOUT brighter skin and these really deliver! They are large, so I sweep the pad all over my face, neck, and chest. There are 60 pads per order, and I’m only using one of these every several days, so they should last between 2-3 months.
The hair mask is back too, and it’s sooooooooooooo good y’all. I absolutely love it, and my mom and sister use it too! My mom swears it restored her hair to it’s previous texture and shine.
The entire site is 60% OFF, and some sale pieces are an additional 70% OFF. WHOAH. Click HERE to shop the entire site. Click HERE to get to my last Ann Taylor post (that highlights the outfits seen below).
You can see some elevated tees, and you can get a sneak peek into some of my home!
Click HERE for these beach multi snake slip on sandals. They are $55 OFF! And they are SO CHIC! There are many colors on this link, and several of them are on sale. The snake print is the upper left color circle. I’ve had these in the standard cognac for a couple of years now and think they’re great.
MY SANDALS IN STOCK AND ON SALE!
Speaking of sandals…
I said last week that I was soooooooo bummed that I could no longer find the Sam Edelman cushiony slide sandals for y’all because I was FLAT OUT OBSESSED with mine. I have them in cognac, and if they were still readily available, I would probably name them a MUST HAVE. That’s how much I love them.
I’ve received COUNTLESS e-mails from readers over the last 2 weeks saying that y’all were so glad you listened and grabbed them for yourself! I even a handful of you say you were going back for a 2nd pair.
WELL. Most sizes and colors are gone at Nordstrom and on the Sam Edelman site…..but all colors (except cognac of course! boo!) appear to be pretty well stocked HERE! I recommend sizing down a 1/2.
And as a reminder, here is what they look like on! DANG THEY’RE CUTE!
As you can see, the foot bed is super cushioned, the wide straps are very comfy, and I love the little bit of height that the small platform gives. I have a narrow foot, and even though they are a wider cut, I really like them! Again, I did size down a 1/2, so I would recommend that. The white treaded bottoms are very “in”.
Use the code MEMORIALDAY for 30% OFF the site, with only some exclusions (kids bead kits, the deal of the day, and the $10 tab).
I sure do hope you like this new neutral tassel necklace, because no doubt you will be seeing it on repeat.
Just like the rainbow wood tassel necklace I’ve been wearing for 5 years now. #andIamstillwearingit #noshame
Here’s my personalized bracelet, also 30% OFF right now. I did the initials C, S, and B with hearts in between them. C is for Chris, Carter, and Charlie…..S is for Sheaffer…..and B is for Buddy. LOVE.
Other A.C. items that have caught my eye lately:
This rainbow heart with the turquoise beads. It’s very delicate and so pretty!
These beaded rainbow drop earrings.
These really cool fringe drop earrings. So colorful and fun!
There are 10 pages of sale items at Sephora, but I’m going to pick out and highlight some that stood out to me:
This petite Naked palette is ONLY $14.50 and has fantastic reviews!
This Tarte Highlight and Contour palette is 50% OFF, and people love it!
The Glo Science Teeth Whitening Systems are all on sale!
KENDRA SCOTT – NO LONGER ON SALE
I already highlighted several of my favorite Kendra Scott pieces early on in the post with the LOFT outfits, but I want to share this shot of the earrings again. They are some of my very favorite earrings.
And good news, this zig zag sweater is back in stock!
