Rounding up some sales happening over the long weekend if you find yourself in the market for some summer staples. There are lots of cute on-sale finds I think you’ll love! See below for my picks and a few other noteworthy sales to check out if you’re so inclined.

Summer sales to shop

Summer sales to shop this weekend!

Madewell:

25% off site wide, including new summer arrivals!

1. The Charley Double-Strap Slide Sandal:

These are a reader favorite! A more polished alternative to birks–supportive, but chic!

2. Stone Stud Ear Jackets:

I love these subtle statement earrings! You can also remove the back and wear them as studs!

3. Ribbed Button-Front Crop Tank:

Love this tank that can easily be dressed up or down–a basic, but more elevated than a cotton tank!

4. Brightside Tank Top:

A great basic tank that has 5 star reviews and comes in tons of cute colors and patterns!

5. Seersucker Sophia Peplum Tank in Rainbow Gingham Check:

How can you not smile when pulling on this rainbow smocked top? Such a fun summer tank to dress up or down!

6. Organic Cotton Broken-In Baseball Cap:

A cute neutral baseball cap that goes with everything and is a little more elevated than your average!

I also ordered these! Will report back if they’re comfy!

Another popular reader favorite if you’re looking for sandals with an ankle strap! Make sure to read the reviews for sizing.

An awesome versatile summer top! I ordered this as well and hope it’s as cute in person as it is on the site!

10. MWL Breeze Drawstring Romper:

A wear-everywhere one-piece summer outfit. Throw it on for errands with sneakers, wear over a swimsuit, or dress it up with wedges for dinner. (Making this an excellent travel staple!)

11. Linen-Cotton Square-Neck Button-Front Top in Gingham Check:

I absolutely LOVE the green gigham and the cut of this top!

12. Linen-Blend Easy Pull-On Shorts in Gingham Check:

…and it gets even cuter with the matching pull-on shorts! Cool and comfy but very cute!

13. Whisper Cotton Rib-Crewneck Ringer Tee in Thurman Stripe:

I love this striped tee! So cute with jeans and jean shorts!

14. Denim Corsica Short Overalls in Vintage Canvas Wash:

I have been eyeing short-alls and I love this vintage white wash. Perfect for summer!

15. The Hallie Espadrille Sandal in Leather:

Summer fashion staples

J.Crew:

50% off hot weather styles, sandals starting at $39

1. Paddle short:

A great outdoorsy short that is so cute you’ll want to wear it everywhere!

2. Long-sleeve linen crop top in eyelet:

I think this top is so chic and a perfect pair for your favorite high-waisted jeans or shorts. A great date night top!

3. Cropped V-neck sweater-tank:

I love the knit on this tank and it comes in some amazing colors! (Also love the neutral tan, too!)

4. Harbour side-cutout dress:

A crisp white dress is a staple in every summer wardrobe, and I love this cutout version!

5. Puff-sleeve smocked mini dress in dandelion swirl:

I adore this little dress! Perfect for a more casual destination wedding or just a date night–but can also be dressed down with flat sandals or sneakers!

Cute for a swim cover up or a casual lunch date! A versatile piece you can wear multiple ways on vacation.

7. Perfect-fit shelf-bra tank top:

I LOVE that this basic tank has a built in bra. The slim fit also gives it a bodysuit-esque look (without the wedgie). Comes in tons of colors and would be an awesome basic. In fact, it’s in my cart as we speak.

8. Cutout tie-back one piece:

Love the subtle cut-out and tie back of this one-piece suit! Gives you coverage where you want it but has cute features that make it sassy.

9. Broken-in jersey tiered mini dress:

Also comes in black–a wear-everywhere breezy dress that is the perfect thing to throw on for any summer occasion.

Able sale finds

ABLE:

50% off lots of great items for their surprise online warehouse sale! Plus, you can get 15% off the HALF OFF price with code JESSKEYS15

1. Jordan short sleeve button down:

I love wearing this button down as a set with the matching shorts, or as separates! (Also comes in white!) It’s so light and breezy, great to throw on over a swimsuit, to wear with jeans or shorts for a casual daytime look, and is polished enough for work, too! Runs TTS.

2. Matching drawstring shorts:

I love that these two look like a romper together, which you can dress up or down with just a switch of shoes! I brought these shorts with me to Santa Barbara and wore them multiple times. They’re so comfy! Runs TTS.

3. Jane maxi dress:

I own this dress in multiple colors and it’s so incredibly versatile! See how I styled in multiple ways here! Runs big, I sized down to XS and it’s still plenty roomy.

4. Cynthia half-zip sweatshirt:

I love this sweatshirt and I’m wearing it as we speak! More polished than your average sweatshirt, and I like the cropped length (making it easy to front tuck without looking bulky/bunchy). Runs TTS.

5. Jayce raffia low block heels:

I love these heels! The perfect height–the block heel is also very comfortable and the tan raffia goes with everything! Great for everything from a wedding to a date night.

6. Nico swing dress:

I love this dress! Swingy, very roomy, perfect for a hot day and looks really cute with sneakers or heels! Runs big, I would size down. I could’ve done an XS.

Old Navy Summer sales to shop

Old Navy:

Sitewide sale including summer staples at 60% off!

I also stocked up on some summer essentials for June! Their rompers are my favorite (they have boys too!) because they’re affordable and easy on/off summer outfits. (I love them for daycare too!) They also have great baby swim! I saved $50 on my order this morning with the sale! Here are my women’s picks:

1. Smocked Bandeau Longline Bikini:

I like the smocked longer length of this strapless bikini top! Cute to mix n match with high waisted bottoms!

2. Mid-Rise Bikini Swim Bottoms:

The cutest gingham bikini top…

3. Underwire Longline Swim Top:

and matching bottoms!

4. High-Waisted Cropped Linen-Blend Pants:

These pants come in lots of colors are elastic waist–breezy enough for vacation, but pair them with a button down and you can totally wear them to the office!

5. Sleeveless Striped Mini Swing Dress:

I love this striped casual mini–perfect to wear with sneakers for a day of sight-seeing

6. High-Waisted Linen-Blend Wide-Leg Pants:

Similar to the above, but a different cut! Also come in lots of colors–wear them everywhere–from weekend to work!

7. Sleeveless Waist-Defined Linen-Blend Utility Romper:

Also comes in great colors, I love this romper especially for vacation because it’s cute with sneakers for sightseeing and you can wear it to dinner with some sandals and pretty earrings!

8. Oversized Striped Boyfriend Shirt:

A classic summer go-to–throw it over a bathing suit, wear it with jean shorts, wear it into work–a true wardrobe workhorse.

9. PowerSoft Sleeveless Shelf-Bra Support Dress:

You know how much I love the other version of this dress! (Which is sadly almost sold out!) But this one is well-stocked, comes in multiple colors, and has such a cute flattering neckline! I LOVE these kinds of dresses and they’re so easy to throw on with bike shorts underneath.

10. High-Waisted Linen-Blend Shorts:

Much like the pants above, I love a good pair of breezy pull-on shorts. (I loved them postpartum especially, too!) For when you want to feel cute but you want something comfier than jean shorts.

Love the twist detail of this top!

6. Crepe Textured Tie-Front High Waist High Leg Extra Cheeky Bikini Bottom:
