Is there anything better than an impromptu weekend getaway? Hardly. Unfortunately, that's a near impossibility this summer. But if I could align the stars for a weekend respite, I know where I'd go (Palm Springs) and what I'd pack (plenty of poolside worthy coverups). A lot of us are thinking of fall because the kids are back to school (whatever that looks like) and/or we're over this isolated summer. But I hesitate to skip over this last hurrah of the season. It's important to live in the moment - particularly now - and be mindful of what we have, rather than longing for what's next. I find that to be no more true than when it comes to our closets. Rather than pining

away for blazers and boots, let's savor the end of season sales. Yes, SALES! Many of the season's best sales will drop in August instead of their usual July. And they'll be offering up all the summer trends. Let's also relish in end of summer dressing for the trips we'll take (perhaps only to the backyard) or the ones we're dreaming of (quiet, beach bungalow, anyone?). Languish in sunset hues of orange, red, and pink; or lolly in nautical blues and crisp whites. Hit the highway in on-trend prairie dresses or lightweight linen. Stay close to home in versatile shirt dresses. Whether at home or in the car, embrace embellished slides that can be set aside when you're ready to be grounded. However you get away for these final weeks of summer, you can't go wrong. But if you need help, I'm always around, of course. Together we'll uncover the perfect outfit that will inspire your idyllic summer getaway - whether it's miles or mere steps away.

I don't know how you spent your 4th of July weekend, but I spent mine online shopping. Was it just me, or were the sales especially good this year?!? I could have spent a lot more than I did, but I tried to keep it under control. LOL! I hit up three of my favorite websites and this is what I found...




Chaser Cheap Trick Tee


This tee arrived with an unexpected surprise: tiny holes! LOL! I didn't see them in the photo, but there they were! I thought they added character to the tee and wasn't upset about seeing them. Although I could wear a medium in Chaser tees, I went with a large so I could knot it in the front. I have a feeling I'll be wearing it A LOT.


THIRTY-NINE 42 Frankie Y Drop Necklace


This Y-shaped necklace is giving me disco vibes - and I'm here for it! This is the perfect necklace to dress up a plain tee or add some sizzle to a LBD (little black dress).


Billabong Sunburnt Sky Maxi Kimono


I saw YouTuber, ReMaking Missy, trying this on in an unboxing video. It was love at first sight. This kimono wasn't on sale, but I had to have it! I can't wait to pair it up with denim shorts and white tanks.


Jean-ish® Ankle Leggings


I love me some Spanx! These jean style leggings are no exception. Not only do I love the color and the length, they make my lower half look amazing. These super comfy pants hold you in through the tummy, give you great butt, and make your thighs look amazing. I can't say enough good things. I foresee these being in heavy rotation!


Pillow Cup Signature Full Coverage Bra


I am also a huge fan of Spanx bras. I usually wear the Bra-llelujah!® Full Coverage Bra, but I think this style is going to be a winner, too. My first impression is that it is very comfortable with great coverage (as promised). It gives a great shape under tees and smooths out upper back rolls. Another hit from Spanx.


Venus Sailor Front Pants (thrifted from ThredUp)

I am crossing my fingers that a few tweaks to these cute, linen pants will make me love them. They are a little snug across the tummy/hips/rear, but not uncomfortably so. I am hoping that because they are linen, that they will relax a little. I also think they are a little short - but that could just be me. I am considering adding to the hem to make them closer to floor length. We'll see!

<<<Want to try out ThredUp, save some cash, and keep another t-shirt out of a landfill? Use my link {here} for $10 towards your first purchase! Yes, that's an referral link and I'll get a li'l something, too, for sending you over! It's a win-win!>>>


That's everything! See, I didn't do too much damage! If you like these hauls, be sure to DM me and let me know over on Instagram!




My fashion boxes have been one of two things lately: (a) a complete win where I love EVERYTHING or, (b) a complete loss where I want to send it all back. This month's Amazon Personal Shopper by Prime Wardrobe box was no exception. I was excited when I previewed the items my stylist selected for me, but when I got them on...well...that was another story. You can see all the items I received in the video below - or, if you prefer, scroll down for a list of the items along with links. *Note: these links are NOT sponsored, but listed for your convenience. At the end of this post I'll show you what I kept and why!


WHAT'S IN THE BOX:

*Note: prices are not listed due to fluctuating pricing on Amazon.


Cole Haan Women's Grand Crosscourt Tennis Flatform Loafer Flat


The Drop Women's Gabriela High Neck Cut-in A-line Slit Maxi Sweater Dress


Lark & Ro Women's Florence Ruffle Short Sleeve V-Neck Top


Amazon Essentials Women's Short-Sleeve Surplice Cropped Wide-Leg Jumpsuit, Black


find. Women's 18AMA045


Amazon Brand - Goodthreads Women's Denim Mid-Rise Raw Edge Short


NINE WEST Women's wnMARINA3 Heeled Sandal


Amazon Essentials Women's Short-Sleeve Surplice Cropped Wide-Leg Jumpsuit, Navy


If you watched the video, then it's no surprise to hear that I kept the white, Cole Haan sneakers (I paid $89 for these, BTW). They are so comfortable! They feel like walking on clouds (I mean, I imagine that's what walking on clouds feels like...if one could even walk on clouds...but I digress).


A white sneaker is such a classic summer staple. Even though I'll be spending most of the summer close to home, I still imagine getting good use out of them. I can't wait to throw them on with cut-off shorts or cute , summer dresses!
