Hello + welcome to this tiny space on the internet! I created this blog (+ changed the name twice since) 14 years ago as a creative outlet from my career in the emergency room as a PA. After spending the past 7 (or so) years on social media outlets, I have decided to delete all of the ones associated with this blog and get back to the heart of blogging.
I wanted to keep this short + sweet with a few brands that I think are worth shopping this weekend. I know that all the sales can be overwhelming and I want to break it down into items or brands that I think are worth your time + money. As always, don’t feel like you need to shop any sales this weekend. Spend time with friends + family instead 🙂
Abercrombie: 20% off sitewide + 15% off additional on certain items
This skirt is on major rotation and has the perfect fit. It is a bit heavier weight which makes it NOT see through and it moves beautifully. I just wore it in NYC with a simple black crop top and sneakers! The blue floral one would look really cute with the matching top for any event you may have!
Avene: You can use the code: SUMMER25 for 25% off at Avene right now! It’s the perfect time to stock up. These are the products I have been using on my redness prone skin (thanks to rosacea as I age) and I absolutely LOVE them. I use this lotion for my face, thermal spring water (this stuff is pretty amazing, read about it here), this tinted SPF face cream, + this cleansing lotion. Their products are so gentle and contrary to the belief, you do NOT need to use a million products to have great skin. A nice cleanser and lotion along with some prescription retinol can go a long way.
Hanna Andersson: Love this brand for kids wear – up to 60% off
J. Crew: EXTRA 60% off sale // linen beach shirt from my capsule wardrobe, cotton poplin shirt in stripe, cardigan sweater – similar to JK one – I would size up for oversized feel, tiered maxi similar to the one in my summer capsule, toe ring slingback sandals, pull-on linen shorts, + high neck tank dress
Jenni Kayne: 20% off sweaters with code: SWEATERS20 // Cashmere cocoon cardigan (they actually just restocked the cotton cocoon cardigan so I may try that one and sell my cashmere one for my versatility through the seasons), drift dress, oiled leather sandal, tiered dress from my capsule wardrobe
Madewell: up to 60% off
Nike: Huge Nike sale – I like picking up the kids shoes for the new school year during these sales!
Tommy John: I worked with this brand for years when I was on IG and I truly LOVED everything from them. Their pajamas are a dream and I still wear them daily now. My husband loves their underwear, shorts, tees – basically everything. 30% off $150+
Items I think are worth it: this Jenni Kayne look alike raffia bag that is currently 40% off with code: MDW, this poplin tiered maxi skirt that is in my summer capsule wardrobe, Our Leighton dining table, our gorgeous blue table lamp, $14 high waisted linen shorts, boxy crop tank,
