4th of July Weekend Sales

Jul 1, 2017

Happy long weekend!

Totally late on posting my sale favorites! SORRY! It’s because I had my FIRST DRESS FITTING (!!) yesterday and got too excited to actually work on anything after that. We’re spending the weekend hanging out with friends and family and hanging out at the lake!

One sale item I’ve purchased thus far is kind of a massive one–we got a new dining table! I’ve been wanting this white lacquer topped expandable table from West Elm FOR-EVER and it just went on sale starting at just $559, so we knew we had to take the plunge. Eeeek! (I convinced Neal to split it with me for my birthday present, haha!) If you’ve been searching for a deal on literally anything, there’s a good chance it’s on sale this weekend, so make sure to give the sales a browse!

Best sales at a glance:

Nordstrom: Ton’s of new stuff just added to their sale section. SO many good summer staples that you can find for under $50 or $100!





Shopbop: Same situation, they just added tons to their sale section, so give it a browse!

West Elm: Duh, dining table situation. So much good stuff on sale! Take an extra 20% existing markdowns and 20% off furniture!

Ann Taylor: 50% off EVERYTHING. Woah man. Definitely give this one a browse. They have so much cute jewelry, too! (Who would’ve known?)

Baublebar: Speaking of jewelry, they’re offering up to 75% off select earring styles!





Tuckernuck: Take 20% off all orders over $200!

Some Personal On-Sale Favorites: 

Frame Skinny Jeans: $171

I’ve never worn Frame personally, but I have tons of friends who swear by them! I’ve NEVER seen this good of a price on them, either. Apparently they’re the softest jeans around!

Striped Wrap Dress: $64

This summery striped wrap dress looks so comfy and perfect for almost any occasion this summer! (Great for work, too!)

Turquoise Drop Earrings: $24.50

I’ve never thought about shopping for jewelry here, but they have so much cute stuff right now! These turquoise earrings caught my eye!

MAC Buy 2 products, get a free lipstick! 

Right now, Nordstrom is running a “buy 2, get 1 full size lipstick” promo on MAC products. I love these lipsticks! My go-to shade is the red-orange “Lady Danger.”

Cold Shoulder Ruffle Top: $49

(Also comes in white!) Such a cute tank to wear with jean shorts!

Levi’s Wedgie Shorts: $58

Speaking of jean shorts, I love my Levi’s Wedgie Shorts! These are on sale for a major steal right now. I love that they’re high-waisted with a button-fly, so you never have to worry about awkward zipper moments.

Red Shoreline Converse: $35

I have had my eye on these cuties for so long. I don’t think you can find a more summery sneaker! And $35?!

Beautycounter 4th of July “Protect and Refresh” Bundle: $50 

Three different friends have recommended Beautycounter’s sunscreen and facial mist to me in the past week! They’re running a promo for the 4th where you can get both products plus a lip balm for $50! I’m now at that age where I have realized that sun is the devil and I’ve been looking for a great sunscreen that wouldn’t make me break out or make my skin all gross, so I was excited to see this deal!

Little White sundress: $32

Yeah, I mean. I think everyone needs this one?

Mar Y Sol Tassel Bag: $83

I rarely see Mar Y Sol on sale! This striped tassel bag is about the cutest straw tote around!

Parisian-Inspired Summer Sweater: $99

Can’t even handle myself right now this sweater is so cute. THE SIDE TIES!?

Steve Madden Carrson Sandals: $72

I have these sandals in blue and love them so much! The neutral is on sale and is super versatile, if you’ve been looking for a new pair of great nude heels–these would be a smart buy.

Blue Drop Ball Earrings: $22

More ball drop earrings. I love the Cerulean blue. (Which movie does “cerulean blue” make you think of?) Baublebar is offering up to 75% off this weekend, so make sure to check out their full sale line-up!
