Labor Day Sales

It's Back to School tomorrow for me... ugh, so depressing! Labor Day has officially become my most dreaded holiday as it marks the end of summer. However, to soften the blow, I did some shopping -- which always cheers me up! Luckily Labor Day offers great sales. I started my day at J. Crew, where all sale items are an extra 30 off. That is always a sale too good to pass up. Here is what I bought:

The No. 2 Pencil (ha! as if I needed another) in Deck Stripe was on my wish list for a while. I also bought two pairs of 5 inch Chino Shorts in Neon Azalea and Modern Red. Lastly, I picked up the polka dot scarf in burgundy/pink.
I also bought this striped v-neck top at The Limited for 40 off. I don't often shop at this store but I really ought to check it out more often. Great items and great sales.
Lastly, I was very excited to pick up a dozen of these Gerbera Daisy faux flower stems from Pier One for just $2.38 each! They look perfect in my dining room vase and are an amazing way to say goodbye to summer and hello to autumn!


  1. I totally understand your thinking about Labor Day. I hope your first day goes well, and congrats on your shopping finds! Having a closet full of cute clothes helps to soften the blow. :)

  2. Thanks for the well wishes --- the year is off to a crazy start but I am trying to stay positive. Clothes help to cheer me up!

  3. Ahhh, retail therapy...yep, it always helps! :o) You're going to love the chino shorts...I like the 5" inseam too. I have the modern red from last year...they were one of my best purchases last summer. and I just picked up the vivid lime with the last promo.

  4. I've definitely gotten some mileage out of them already!
