Friday Buy Day 5.21.16

It's Friday again, which means it's Buy Day again (and you may even have some funds saved up because we haven't written a Friday Buy Day in a couple of weeks!).  The weather is warm(ish) and we have some fun BBQ's and end-of-the-year parties lined up, so this week we are bringing you our favorite sale/deal picks with Summer on our minds.

                                                            Summer Staple

                                                           Summer Staple

Here is your Summer top.  A crisp white cotton, a delicate off the-shoulder sleeve and an elastic neckline to accommodate for movement.  Wear it with denim shorts and sandals, or tuck it into high-waist, wide-leg culottes for an on-trend look!  At $46 (yes, I repeat $46) this darling top will definitely up your warm weather game without emptying your wallet.

 

Oh, and those denim shorts we just mentioned...here they are.  More of a "boyfriend" interpretation, this perfectly distressed pair by BlankNYC are slightly slouchy and the perfect mate to an off the shoulder top or an open knit tank.  Wear them with white sneakers and a striped tee for a chic nautical look or try them with a leather jacket and gladiators for a more downtown vibe.

As everyone knows, we have a mild to severe obsession with high-tops but when high-tops won't do, we love these netted "low-tops" by Tretorn.  A true classic, we love these sneakers paired with just about everything.  Try them with an embroidered top and chambray skirt, or add a little edge and wear them our favorite way with distressed cut-offs and a moto inspired leather jacket...the Panama hat is optional(:

We know it's almost Summer but that doesn't mean you won't be wearing a jacket...even Southern California nights can be chilly...not too mention everything looks better with an awesome black leather jacket.  This one is under $275(!!!!!) and is made of calfskin leather with perfect moto inspired detailing, no rockstar boyfriend required(:  The sizing is UK so subtract 4 to get your US sizing (i.e.: UK size 10 is US size 6) and get your true size.  This brand can run a little small, but the best black leather jackets are fitted and worn with confidence.  Treat yourself to a staple that will never go out of style.

How darling is this outfit?  Wear are loving the matching top and skirt combo trend and at under $150 for BOTH this is the perfect way to indulge in a trend without feeling wasteful.  With delicate embroidered trim and a feminine flounce style, this ensemble is sure to invite some complimentary discussion.  Wear it with ankle wrap sandals for a chic, casual look or try it with platform wedges and a top-knot for a friend's shower.

Lastly, this darling poncho by Ella Moss.  Now $93 from $258, we love this caftan style topper as a poolside cover-up just as much as we love it with skinnies and wedges.  The fringe detailing is spot-on and the pops of orange are a cheerful addition to the heathered oatmeal color.  Wear it on a plane with white jeans and sandals,  or pack it on your next trip (takes up virtually no space and  is super versatile).  This is a great piece for a great price.

Happy Weekend!

 

Cheers,

Cate & Shannon
