Top 10

Best of Comfy + Athleisure

I wear athleisure most days of the week since I’m a work-from-home mom. These will be the pieces you reach for on the weekends and for casual errands, etc! I’m so excited to see my favorite tennis dress included in the sale this year. It’s superior to any others because the shorts aren’t attached in the back and if you need to use the restroom, you don’t have to fully undress!

Best of Shoes

Shoes are always my weakness during the sale, but I will say I always get the best cost per wear out of my shoe purchases each season. When it comes to shoes, I like to get quality shoes that are comfortable. My top recommendations for you would be a knee-high boot, a comfortable work flat, and an everyday sneaker (because these rarely go on sale!).

Best Of Accessories

If you need a staple handbag or designer pair of sunglasses, this is the best time to snag them on sale!

Best Investment Pieces Worth the Splurge

Last year I invested in a few pieces from Reiss and Vince, and they were by far my favorite purchases from the sale!

Best of Basics

I always snag a few new basics in the sale every year. These are the pieces you wear daily, so it’s nice to have some quality items that make you feel good. My favorite comfortable bralettes and everyday briefs are included in the sale this year! There’s also some great shapewear and basics like leggings to consider, too!

Layering Pieces

Here you’ll find the best cardigans, jackets, and blazers to layer with all fall season!

Best of Dresses

I’m definitely team dresses over pants all year long, so I always get excited to add a few new fall and winter dresses to my wardrobe. There are also some pretty pieces you can wear now, too!

Best of Bottoms

Transitional Pieces

Switching between seasons can be a little tricky, especially if you live in warmer weather and you’re anxious for fall! Here are some pieces to help transition your wardrobe from summer to fall. I also shared some tips on how to do that, here.

Best of Beauty

The beauty selection during the sale usually includes more deluxe-size sets for a discount, so it’s a great time to stock up on things you already know and love!

Mom Favorites

Whether you’re a new mom looking for nursing-friendly or postpartum finds, or you’re seasoned but looking to update your staples, here are my selects for you!


For the Family

The last two years I’ve purchased bigger ticket items, like Josie’s car seats, during the sale. I also got her this jacket last year and she can still fit in it for this next season, too!

Holiday Gift Ideas to Grab on Sale

During big sales like this, it’s helpful to grab some holiday gifts ahead of the season so you can save and check some things off your list early! Here are some of my favorite gifting options included in the sale.
