Hey friends! Happy Sunday!
I’m currently on my couch enjoying a rare weekend without kids’ sports or looming homework deadlines, so needless to say I am feeling FREEEEEE! lol Any other mama’s out there feel me on this?
ANYWAY, unless you have been hiding under a rock, you probably are aware that there are a ton of sales for Labor Day going on right now. I’ve read about 15 blog posts already dedicated to this subject, and honestly? It gets a little old. This constant pushing of the same products that make you feel like you must have it or your life won’t be complete. I don’t want to be that person for you. I hope you know, you don’t need any of the things on sale this weekend to be happy. Enough is a decison, not an amount!
However, my hope is to always be a source for you of things that I love and are workhorses in my closet, that I think you might love, too.
We live on one solid income in my home, as well as what I make via blogging, so my clothing budget is very limited! I conciously add things that I know will work with mutiple outfits, multiple ways, for multiple seasons. I read tons of reviews, I am always researching, and I buy, try on, and return A LOT! I use the steps in my course, Your Simplified Closet, to create a wardrobe that can be mixed and matched for a long time. It is my personalized system of creating a wardrobe of pieces that work for me and my life. A real life filled with kids’ sports, errands, working from home, and not scheduled blog shoots in heels + designer bags filled with outfits I don’t wear in real life.
That being said, some of my favorites that I wear all of the time are on sale right now. I rarely buy things full price, I tend to wait for sales like these to scoop up items from my favorite brands (Free People, Abercrombie, American Eagle…) because I know it always goes on sale. Below are a few tried and true faves that I love, that I think you would love, too!
5 things on sale that I own and love!
1) American Eagle ripped boyfriend jeans
These jeans. YOU GUYS. They are the best. They have the perfect distressing, the perfect coloring, and fit so good! I am obsessed. I have worn these multiple times a week for months now and they are a best seller here and on my blog, and for good reason. They fit tight at first, but loosen up as you wear them. I often wear them 7 times or so before I wash them. I tried on three different sizes in store and found that my true size worked the best. If you are more bottom heavy these might not work for you, I find them tightest on my thighs, but again, loosen up a TON as you wear them.
2) Abercrombie tee shirts
These tee shirts are so good, I own them in two colors (white and gray), and just ordered two more in blush and camo! They are butter soft, drape beautifully, and work both casually and more dressy. They are under $15 (normally $29) and worth it!
*worn with one of the bracelets I link below!
3) Victoria Emerson Bracelets 40% off
I have an embarassing amount of these wrap bracelets, and a couple of the magnetic bracelets! They are on crazy sale right now and so worth it. I am wearing this pearl versionabove, I wear it the most. I also have this turquoise version and this black crystal version. I also love this magnetic clasp bracelet with the turquoise and feathers (see photo above!)
4) American Eagle kimono
If you’ve been following me a hot minute, you know I love this kimono! It goes with everything, makes every outfit better, and I have worn it so many times since I bought it last spring!
5) Old Navy swing dress and mustard heels
This dress is newer to me, but I LOVE the color and it is so comfortable! Plus, it’s under $15 right now.… I love it on its own while it is hot, or layered with a sweater, leggings, and booties for Fall. I am wearing my typical size small and it fts perfectly.
And these heels! They are butter soft, the perfect heels height, and again, this mustard color gives me LIFE! This is the color I pop my mostly neutral wardrobe with, and I have worn these heels a couple of times and they look good with everything. They are true to size.
That’s it! I hope you have a relaxing and wonderful 3 day weekend! I’ll see you here next week, or come follow me on Instastories (@meaganrigney) for daily updates!
