Happy Friday. And it's the happiest kind of Friday because it is Friday of a three-day weekend! we hope you are doing something fun or relaxing or both, and are bringing you some must-have separates to pack for now...or layer for later.
Because it would be irresponsible to exclude a pair of white denim on Labor Day weekend considering all the controversy that surrounds these cloud-colored pants this time of year...
It is a matter of personal preference, but I wear white denim all year round. I wear them with the usual pairings in the Spring/Summer, and during the Winter I love to pair them with a cream colored chunky sweater and booties, or a denim button-up, pea-coat and leopard flats. This pair by my favorite denim line, Frame, and are now $73 from $209!! They have a mid-rise, they are a perfect length and they are super-flattering...which is saying a lot because white jeans can be tough. Almost all sizes left, for now....
Cute, right? Love the gingham print, the eyelet lace detail at the bottom hem and the versatility of this button-up. Wear it with white jeans, denim shorts or a straw hat for now. Come fall, try it with the cropped cable-knit sweater featured in the last Friday Buy Day post and add distressed denim and tweed high-tops (another old Friday Buy Day item). At $49.95 and an additional 30% off the sale price, it is too sweet to skip.
These Ancient Greek sandals are insane. Part sandal, part shootie....they are utterly cool. The perforated leather, wrap around ankle and brass studs are just enough without being too much. Amazing with printed silk shorts, sundresses, and seventies inspired rompers. Also perfection with grey distressed denim, a printed tee and leather jacket. Or try them with a silky blouse and leather skorts (yes, skorts). There are only 4 sizes left, but I couldn't help posting them because they are so cool. Originally $325, now $289 and an Additional 50% off!!!
Bohemian chic at it's best. Softly draped sleeves, a creamy painterly palette, crochet lace trim. Wear it with denim shorts and gladiators. Wear it with flare jeans and wedges. Wear it grey skinny cords and taupe suede booties. Originally over $300, on sale for half that...and now marked another 30% off the sale price....it will be the gift that keeps on giving.
Moving on from flowy bohemian to body-con rocker is this little number from Current & Elliott. 100% Cotton makes this the perfect, packable, wearable, washable dress. Throw on a leather jacket for dinner out or wear it during the day with the sandals above for an effortless and edgy look. For $78, from $156, get the look of Racquel Allegra at 1/3 of the price.
Might seem a little random to include an iPhone case, but I couldn't help myself because my bare iPhone was completely shattered by my 2 year-old last week and I was on the hunt for a chic cover when I found this one. A nude-rose color of crushed sparkles...yes, please. (and on sale, of course)
Lastly, these grey wash, perfectly distressed jeans for those of you who do not buy into the "white after Labor Day ruling". Shannon and I believe you should buy what you WILL wear, not what you THINK you will wear. And these fit that mantra perfectly. No need to go through all the outfit possibilities, only to point out that at $99 (from $248) this is a Fall (and year-round staple) that should be incorporated into your weekly line-up if you don't have a pair already.
Wishing you your best Labor Day yet. Cheers!
