Shopping Round-Ups

Labor Day Weekend Sales + My Top Picks

Greetings and cheers to a long weekend!🍸 Yes, Labor Day Weekend is officially here, and the sales are pretty stellar this year. Rather than giving you a long list of retailer sales that you can find anywhere, I’m focusing in on my top picks and things I’ve worn that are on sale.

As of Monday morning, inventory is getting low on a lot of the items in this post, so I rounded up my favorite deals that are still in stock below.

My Favorite LDW Sales {Monday Edit}

Edwin Ryder Bootcut Jeans 45% off // This is a good deal on a great pair of classic bootcut jeans. Also, this off-the-shoulder top is 10% off.

Vince Scoop Neck Tank Dress 65% off // Such a fun and versatile dress, crazy discount.

Jenni Kayne Cashmere Fisherman Sweater 20% off // Jenni Kayne has some of the most gorgeous cashmere. I love this fisherman sweater in the ivory, and a lot of women love the cocoon cardigan. Use code LDW20.

Fidelity Denim High Waist Cutoff Denim Shorts 40% off // Love the longer inseam on these clean white cut-off shorts. They fit TTS. Also, this sweater vest is 10% off.

Nordstrom Signature Cable Stick Crewneck Cashmere Sweater 65% off // Probably my favorite #NSale purchase, this sweater is so luxe and thick and soft. Also, these Mother Dazzler straight ankle jeans are 40% off, but low inventory.

Frame Le High Raw Hem Ankle Straight Leg Jeans 40% off // A great pair of straight ankle jeans, and they have more of a mid-rise for ladies who prefer that.

Cloth and Stone Shirred Neck Top 30% off // One of my favorite summer tops; still fully stocked! It’s TTS; wearing small.

Nordstrom Signature Cashmere Crewneck Pullover 65% off // A luxe cashmere crew, fits TTS with a relaxed fit. Also, these white booties are 40% off.

Madewell The Perfect Vintage Flare Jean in Delavan Wash 30% off // Flares with a slightly more relaxed fit in Madewell’s Heritage Stretch denim — gives them an old-school look with just enough give for a perfectly broken-in feel.

Madewell Stovepipe Jeans in Banberry Wash 30% // These raw hem slim straight crops in the washed black are right on trend, and a more budget-friendly option to the Fidelity Cher that I wear so much. There is also this pair with a sewn hem, and they’re also available in petite and tall sizes. Use code LONGWEEKEND for 30% off.

Born Miarra Sandals 40% off // These are so cushy and comfortable, and very good quality. The navy turned out to be more versatile than I expected, but they come in other colors as well.

Madewell jeans 30% off // Nordstrom Signature sweater 65% off // Mother jeans 40% off // ribbed tank 10% off // Frame jeans 40% off // Vince dress 65% off

My Top LDW Sale Picks:

  1. this cashmere sweater // Pretty much the perfect camel cashmere v-neck to stand alone or layer under your leather jackets. Not a v-neck fan? This cashmere crew is just as good, and it comes in a lovely neutral grey as well as a gorgeous lilac. Oh, and don’t miss this cable stick crewneck! So luxe. The prices on these sweaters is INSANE — 65% off Nordstrom Signature cashmere doesn’t happen very often.
  2. these Mother jeans // These slim straight ankle jeans are super flattering and on trend — a more modern alternative to skinny jeans. These Frame jeans are another good option, as is this Good American pair.
  3. this neutral blazer // The perfect work to weekend workhorse for your fall wardrobe.
  4. this gorgeous pleated dress // For a semi-formal wedding, or another dressy event this fall. I love this one too, and it’s easier to dress up or down.
  5. this Tory Burch shoulder bag // Excellent quality, the perfect everyday size, in a versatile neutral for year-round wear.
  6. these lug sole loafers // These allow you to participate in the trend in a classic way.
  7. these vintage flare jeans // So good, and under $100 on sale! (Would pair perfectly with this cardigan… just sayin’.)
  8. this quilted jacket // A casual, relaxed jacket to top off your t-shirts and jeans this fall; the fleecy lining will keep you chic and warm on the sidelines or running weekend errands.
  9. this cozy midi dress // Pair this dress with loafers for now and boots for later.
  10. this floral blouse // Add a touch of boho to your fall wardrobe, this blouse will be perfect with flares.
  11. this cozy poncho // Doesn’t this make you want to go on a hayride with a pumpkin spice latte? #comeonfall
  12. this plaid jacket // Such a fun alternative to a utility jacket for fall!
  13. these clogs // Kork-Ease clogs are the most comfortable and walkable of all the ones I’ve tried.
  14. this chestnut brown denim jacket // so perfect for that fall transition… and I love this coated version in midnight blue as well!
  15. this cleansing balm // And one random beauty product — my go-to facial cleansing balm, and it’s 25% off with code LABORDAY. I also replenished my Dynamic Resurfacing Facial Pads.

  1. Can you tell me about the maroon striped sweater and neutral tennis shoes you’re wearing in your picture? Where are they from?

  2. You look great in the outfit with the Paige black jeans! Thanks so much for the Amazon tip, just ordered a pair like those, unheard of price for Paige! Did not have any Paige jeans due to price, hope they will fit as I really needed a pair of updated black jeans.

      1. I noticed that too right after I placed the order. The fabric content is identical to the pair in the Bloomie’s site which did not mention velvet. We’ll see.

  3. LOVE you in the top picture. That jacket color looks so great with the black jeans and the platform sandals. Great post. You put so much work into it. Must easier to navigate than just letting us know which stores have sales. Have a good trip to Nashville. What a fun place to go to college. I haven’t been there and would love to. Did you know Cyndi Spivey’s sister, Traci lives there? They just bought lots of land in the country with a house and pond on it. I just can’t believe its time for you to be looking at colleges again. Your kids were so much younger when I first started following you……2015. Have a great long weekend.

  4. Thank you! I’ll be doing some shopping this weekend. You look great in everything. Has it been fun dressing a new body type? I never noticed what amazing shoulders you have. You seemed more of an hour glass and now an inverted triangle. It must be fun to shop for new styles and wear things you weren’t comfortable with before.

    1. Thank you. It was more fun at first, but now that “things” have settled, I’m still bigger than I’d like. I’m kind of struggling with that, to be honest. But funny you say that about the inverted triangle. I have been looking at different body type information, and if I use shoulders as my top measurement rather than bust, I definitely lean that way. It’s kind of a tossup between hourglass and inverted triangle. Which makes sense as to why I’m always fighting my shoulders when I try on tops and sweaters. I feel like I mention them more in try-on hauls than I do my bust, even though that was a challenge as well.

      1. I think a lot of people are a mix of body types. You look great in everything, so you’re doing it right! Funny you said you fight with your shoulders when dressing. I think they’re an asset. Don’t get down about your size. You look fantastic. Your body went through major surgery. I’m sure being in the fashion industry and trying on clothes each day contributes to how you feel. I appreciate your honesty and all the work you out into your website. Have a great weekend!

        1. Thanks, yes, I realize that. I am so in tune with how everything fits and feels. 🙂 And I do like my shoulders, actually. I just realize when dressing that they are kind of “bossy” and I have to be careful about sleeve styles so they don’t overpower my frame. Enjoy your weekend!

  5. Have a great time in Nashville! That’s where we live. There’s so much great stuff to do here. I hope your daughter loves it.
    Where did you get the camel colored belt that you have on with the black jeans? I’ve been looking for that color.

  6. Wow!!!! You really did a lot of work on this sale round up. I was just thinking about the Navy Borne slides you recommended. I think its my best purchase this Summer and so unexpected. I love the Navy……has actually gone with so much and they are sooo comfortable. I highly recommend them and I got mine for $59.99 on first sale. Definitely will be pulling them out again come Spring. Our temps are going to be high 70’s to high 80’s and even a 91 thrown in there for the next 10 days, so hard to wear any Fall yet. I too need to purge my closet again. Seems like I just did that, but I find I wear a capsule wardrobe and the rest is just in the way. I’m trying to be more selective on what I buy. Looking forward to what you have in store for your blog for Fall. Last year you started your Christmas guide lists early and I really appreciated that. I usually start my Christmas shopping come Oct. 1. I have many to buy for and like to have it all complete before Thanksgiving, so I have selection and can then relax and focus on the REAL meaning of Christmas. You had the best gift guides. Crazy all your kids are back in school already. Seems so long ago we had the school schedule.

  7. I am considering purchasing a Goyard St Louis tote, but can’t decide if I should get the PM or GM. What size do you have? Do you like that size? How does it compare (size and quality) to the LV Neverfull? Would you purchase it again? Thanks in advance for sharing your opinion and giving me a “mini review” of the bag.

    1. I love it. It’s the GM. I mostly just use it for travel and if I want to bring my laptop along with me somewhere. It’s too big for everyday. My LV Neverfull is the MM size and that’s a better size for everyday. I think the quality is comparable between the two but I like that the goyard isn’t as commonly seen.

      1. I have the LV Neverfull MM too (love that size for everyday), so thanks for the size comparison. Good to know that you think the Goyard GM is better for travel/too big for everyday. 😀

  8. Looking for a link for your taupe colored retro looking sneakers. Can’t remember the brand name and don’t see it below the picture. Thanks!
