The malls may be packed with new fall arrivals, but this week I am shopping the end of summer sales racks!
September is the perfect time to stock up on essentials such as tanks, teens, summer weight jeans, and capris. And, price tags have been slashed to 50%, 60% — even 75% and more off original retail prices.
Although you will only have a few weeks to wear your new finds before fall begins in earnest, next year you will have an amazing head start on the summer season.
I personally tend to focus on basics for my end of summer sales shopping, so that I can shop for up-to-the-minute trends at the beginning of the season. Classic white shirts, pencil skirts, simple thong sandals, and capris in “utilitarian” shades such as khaki, red, and navy help fill out my wardrobe. And, next year I won’t bemoan the fact that I “have nothing to wear” when the thermometer skyrockets without warning in early April!
Some of my favorite oh-so-affordable finds?
From Talbots, the Flawless Five-Pocket Crop Jeans (were $79.50, now $19.99), the Etched Floral Pencil Skirt (was $99.00, now $19.99) and the Lamar Tassel Sandals in Metallic Silver or Gold (were $109.00, now $19.99).
At Ann Taylor, the Draped Sheath Dress (was $139.00, now 29.93 after additional 40% off), the Maried Sleeveless Shell (was, $79.50, now $41.99 after additional 40% off), and the City Shorts (were $49.99, now $17.99 after additional 40% off).
From Banana Republic, the Windowpane Sleeveless Sheath Dress (was $138.00, now $47.99 after additional 40% off), the Riley-Fit Sleeveless Shirt (was $58.00, now $17.99 after additional 40% off), and the Centerbar Italian Leather Belt in Honey Brown (was $48.00, now $17.99 after additional 40% off).
Happy shopping everyone!
