Shorts & Long Sleeve Sweater + Labor Day Sales
This time of year, I always enjoy outfits that create a juxtaposition between warm and cool weather clothing. Whether it’s shorts sleeves with jeans and ankle boots or long sleeves with shorts and sandals, I think it’s fun to mix it up. For today’s post, I’m pairing a cozy long-sleeve pullover with my favorite cut-off denim shorts.
I threw this outfit on one day last week and I liked it so much I had my husband snap some pictures before he went off to work. For one thing, this sweater is soooo soft. Unfortunately it is almost sold out, but this one is similar. In fact, I think I like it better than the one I’m wearing. And this one is cute and cropped, so that would work really well with shorts. I also ordered this one from the Gap this week. The medium was quite large on me so I’m sending it back for a small, but it would definitely be cute with shorts.
I carried a saddlebag in this rich Port color because I love the contrast it makes against the grey. If you like this Port color, the Brynn Hobo is on sale for 50% off. It’s actually a better size for an everyday bag. I like the saddlebag, but it’s pretty small for daily use. For a crossbody in Port, I love the Love Crossbody. These are all Rebecca Minkoff bags. She is one of my favorite handbag designers. She has a downtown style that appeals to me… classic but edgy.
I almost wore sandals with this outfit, but then I decided to go ultra casual with my Converse Shoreline sneakers. I think they really work, and I like how the red stripe picks up the burgundy in the bag. It’s the little things that make me happy! Ha!
I’m wearing the Luna Pendant again. I love how it’s simple but different. Full disclosure: I’m a stylist for Stella & Dot and all links are to my online boutique. If you ever need help with an order, feel free to reach out! You can email me through the Contact link above, or just leave a comment on any post.
This is the kind of outfit I want to live in this time of year. In fact, I wore it again yesterday! We’re having some milder temps here in Philly this weekend, and it’s been a welcome reprieve from the heat and humidity we’ve endured for most of the summer.

So what are your plans for the weekend?? If you get my daily emails, you know we’ve had some sickies in the house. My daughter is doing better, but my son was still pretty sick yesterday so we’re laying low this weekend and taking it easy. I plan to bring last year’s fall clothes and shoes down from the attic and get organized.
Oh, I did get my Trunk Club unboxing on YouTube! You can view that HERE. I’m keeping the lace turtleneck and the white skinnies. I would have kept the black boots, but I realized that I have a pair almost just like that from last year! Thus, the plan to bring my fall stuff down from the attic this weekend. I need to know what I have so I can fill in.
SO much that I bought at the #NSale is sold out… which I sort of figured would happen, but it is still annoying. I don’t want to style stuff that isn’t available to you guys, so I’ll definitely need to take inventory and start placing some new orders.
This is a good weekend to do it because there are lots of Labor Day Sales going on right now. Speaking of which, the pink cold shoulder top I styled on Wednesday is 25% off! And so is that draped cardigan. Use the code WKND25.
