The Best Sales To Shop This Memorial Day Weekend

May 29, 2021

Vax girl summer!

It's been a weird, strange year (and some change) but we're getting vaccinated, dining out again, seeing friends and family in person, and ready to put this pandemic behind us. I for one am so excited to live it up this summer with the friends I've missed this past year, going out, going to movies (I actually went to my neighborhood AMC for the first time since March 2020 to see Cruella, would recommend!) and of course, I'm excited to wear some cute clothes while doing all these fun activities.

Memorial Day Weekend is historically one of the biggest sales weekends of the year, and the 2021 version is going to be huge! So many stores have great deals, and I know you are also probably itching to refresh your wardrobe and treat yourself to some cute new fashions after a year of leggings and T-shirts.

Check out the best deals going on this weekend, plus my on-sale fashion picks:

Everything I'm Shopping For This Summer

May 15, 2021

As I write this, I'm two weeks removed from my second Pfizer shot and ready to hit the town. You know, I know, we all know that this past year has been no walk in the park, but for the first time in a while I'm feeling a sense of reserved optimism and my eye for fashion is reflective of that bright spirit.

After a year of wearing T-shirts and leggings for a majority of the time, I'm ready to have some capital-F FUN this summer. I'm talking plenty of color, fun geometric prints, playful shapes, and outfits that are ready to party. I'm also taking into consideration my newfound appreciation for comfort, opting for knit fabrics, breezy midi dresses, and flat shoes that will keep me comfortable as I ease back into "normal" (if that's even a thing anymore) life.

Here are some of the trends and styles I'm keeping an eye out for as I fill up my summer wardrobe:

Disco Stylings

1 | 2 | 3 | 4
Thanks to disco-tinged music from Dua Lipa, Doja Cat, Kasey Musgraves, and so on, it feels like the psycadelic stylings of the '70s are hip once more. Pucci-inspired prints are about to be everywhere, and I'm ready for it.

Colorful Jewelry

1 | 2
This trend is a little controversial (you either love it or hate it) but I for one think it's so fun and an easy way to add color to even a simple jeans & T-shirt ensemble.

Bridgerton-Blue Midi Dresses

1 | 2 | 3
Yeah, I'm still on that Bridgerton style train. I was searching forever for the perfect blue midi-length dress to wear for my Bridgerton-themed picnic (I ended up wearing this dress) but I still might purchase one if I find the perfect in-budget option.

Rectangle Sunglasses

1 | 2
You know I love a trendy sunglass style! 

Not-Skinny Jeans

1 | 2 | 3
I love my skinny jeans forever, but I'm not opposed to rocking straight leg, flare, and loose styles either.

Halter Necks

1 | 2 | 3
Halter necks are so cute for summer, and you know what, my collar bone looks great in them!

Silk Scarves

1 | 2 | 3
I will be proudly rocking the Pucci scarf I have sitting in my closet and tying it 1000 different ways thanks to TikTok styling videos.
