Memorial Weekend sales list!

Three cheers for long weekends, the start of summer, and new additions to your closet. Here’s a list of just a sample of the sales that are happening over the next few days.

And *please* take time to remember what this holiday is truly about.

Elevated Style

Fashion has gotten expensive. This isn’t exactly news, but it sometimes still blows my mind how much things cost – $900 for a tee-shirt? $500 for a pair of flats? In this day, when one item in your outfit can cost almost as much as a month of rent, more and more companies that were once viewed as less-than-trendy are designing products that are affordable and stylish. Here are a couple to check out:

1. Birkenstock – Once known for simple 2-strap sandals, this company has grown to make some of the cutest and most comfortable sandals. I’ve had 2 fun pairs for a few years now and STILL get compliments. People are always surprised to find out that my metallic silver toe-wrap sandals or my t-strap black patent sandals are made by Birkenstock. They also have many veg-friendly options! (All options below found here and here.)

2. Land’s End. The source of many grade school backpacks and plain turtlenecks has developed a younger, more stylish line called Canvas. They have many cute options including fun dresses and comfy chambray shirts!

Where have you found affordable, stylish pieces?
