Cheers to the freakin’ (long) weekend! It’s been a good one.. I spent the first half of the week in NYC for a project, my birthday was on Wednesday, and we have a three-day weekend ahead! But oh man, lots and lots of work deadlines and crazy schedules in between. Definitely feeling Mercury being in retrograde! But anyway, I’m spending a good portion of the weekend at North Coast Music Festival here in Chicago… So excited for some sunshine and good music! Hope you have a fun weekend planned too!
And without further adieu… The very best Labor Day sales you should be shopping this weekend. It’s the perfect time to stock up for fall!
I got a tiny taste of fall when I was in Amsterdam a few weeks ago. Up until that point, I’d been pretty much in denial that summer would ever end, but the crisp breeze made me remember how much I actually do enjoy sweater weather. While I’m definitely not ready for sweaters and boots just yet, we had a tiny taste of fall here in Chicago and I happily broke out my new leather jacket.
In terms of getting dressed each day, it’s a weird in-between time for me. All of the new things I’ve purchased are mainly for fall and I feel pretty bored with my summer dresses. It’s all about those transition pieces, I suppose. For example, a sleeveless blouse that is great on it’s own now when it’s 90 degrees, but will also work layered under a leather jacket this fall! (This blouse I’m wearing is only $48, FYI! Such a steal.)
Holy cow, you guys. What a week! I just got back from Amsterdam on Tuesday afternoon and I’ve been crazily trying to catch back up on work ever since. Long story short, I found out on Monday of last week that I was going to Amsterdam and that I left approximately 48 hours after that on Wednesday afternoon. Such a whirlwind, but an opportunity of a lifetime to travel to a new country on my bucket list with a good friend of mine from college! I’ll chat more about Amsterdam soon, but for the meantime: Add it to your list if you haven’t been! It was so picturesque and we had the best time.
Lilly Pulitzer is always one of my favorite places to scoop up a few festive dresses before I head on a tropical vacation! And today marks the start of their big sale that only happens twice a year… The After-Party Sale! Wait times are going to be long AF today, but it’s always worth it once you get in.
