Eek – It’s almost August! How did that happen? It seems like summer just began, yet so many people already have their sights set on fall. A big reason a lot of people get excited about fall at this time of year is because of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. If you read blogs, or have social media, I’m sure you’ve noticed it’s what everyone is talking about these days!
On the other hand, I think the fall and winter season is long enough (at least, in Toronto), so I’m still focused on summer. The end of July and early August is one of the best times to shop for summer staples, especially if you like a good bargain. There’s still plenty of time left to wear your summery clothes, and almost everything is on sale. Bonus!
Here’s some of my favourite summer staples under 50 dollars:
It always feels a little bit funny to walk into a mall when it’s hot and humid outside, only to find sweaters, jackets and boots on display. That’s retail for you! If you’re still trying to build your summer wardrobe up, there’s so many great sales to take advantage of. There’s no need to break the bank.
Any time you go shopping during an end-of-season sale (or even a warehouse sale), go without a strict idea of what you’re looking to buy. Have an open mind. You may find some great pieces that will transition well into the fall (like the Bench Discerning Sweat Pant or the Olive + Piper Rocker Choker Duo), but you also might scoop up summery pieces that you’ve had your eye on. I’ve been crushing on the Bench Elquemano Skirt, ever since I saw Kayla style it on her blog, Short Presents. I think I may just need to pull the trigger on that purchase, don’t you think?
