July is commonly known for pools and picnics, beaches and barbecues. But did you know it is also the month full of summer sales? Because the retail stores still run on ancient calenders, autumn clothing starts being delivered in August, therefore the summer inventory has got to go. Here are some of the items I think are the best buys right now.
I am shocked that this dress (HERE) is on sale. Why? Because it seriously looks fantastic on many different body shapes. Want proof? Click HERE. You will see that two of my friends tried this dress on in two different states at exactly the same time and they both purchased it because it looked amazing on them. And let me assure you, they have completely different body types.
I find summer sales are a great time to stock up on basics, like this tee shirt (HERE). I have the boatneck version of this shirt and I buy them by the half dozen. They wash really well and maintain their shape for about a year. Not bad for the price!
Speaking of basics, how cute are these eyelet skirts (HERE)? You can buy this now and wear it until it falls apart because this shape and fabric will never go out of style.
This fun, brightly colored striped dress (HERE) reminds me of the skirt Carrie Bradshaw wore in Sex & The City (HERE). Want to hear a random story about that skirt? It is actually a Nanette Lepore dress and it was a sample. For some reason when it was supposed to go to production they couldn’t get that fabric so it was never made. That is the only one of its kind in existence. I worked for Nanette Lepore at that time and had to take dozens of calls a day regarding that skirt, which is how I know about its history.
Why hello lemon purse! So happy you are on sale! (HERE) Sometimes when I see something whimsical like this purse I have to purchase it on the spot. Other times I wait for that type of thing to go on sale. Now that it is marked down, I can’t think of a single reason not to buy it!
I have this exact shirt (HERE) and love it. Though it looks really bulky at the bottom, it is actually pretty body conforming. I purchased the small and tucked it into a skirt with no problem. Also, just in case you were wondering, my bra doesn’t show through the cutouts at all!
I have this fabric in a dress (also on sale HERE) and adore it! It is so vintage chic! If you like this skirt (HERE) you should snap it up quickly because Boden tends to sell out fast once it goes on sale.
If you see anything you like and decided to click through, be sure to check out all of their sale items because there is a lot of really great stuff out there. I had a difficult time narrowing it down for this post.
